SUMMER IS HERE! For most photographers that means the crazy wedding season has begun already. For me, well, a fair few of you know that I haven’t been actively advertising for pushing myself out there for the last year or so as I’ve been searching for that elusive work-life balance. Single parenting + life is difficult enough without adding work into the mix. So instead of the ‘crazy wedding season’ here at NPPaD, it’s the AWESOME family portrait season! Family portrait sessions are not only one of my favourite sessions to shoot, they’re also a heck of a lot easier to manage around life + parenting ;) … And then you get to meet awesome people that help to remind you of what life is all about (family / love).

In one of the most beautiful spots in Hamilton, New Zealand, I had a great morning with these two beautiful girls and their Dad. Between the lighting and the setting I felt like I was photographing little fairy princesses, these girls are so sweet! We walked our way around the Taitua Arboretum finding unique spots for all our shots, such a great location for Spring and Summer.

No matter the size or shape of your family, it is always worth documenting. Don’t hold off on booking a photographer while you lose whatever weight you want to lose or ‘have your life together’. Now is always the best time. Contact me via my website or find me on social media to talk about your next session.
