Bonni and Scott – Toowoomba Portrait Photography | Video |

By | photography, portraits | No Comments
Anna has photographed Bonni and Scott’s growing family twice now, and each time with a new addition 😃
We love photographing families like these guys. A relaxed out door adventure with super young kids! It’s probably Anna’s favourite thing to do (mine is engagement shoots, in case you’re wondering like this or this!)
Seeing how other parents interact with their kids always serves as an inspiration for how we model our own family.
Every time we photograph an awesome family, I feel like loving my family a little bit more. Hopefully that translates well.

Bonni and Scott were on the receiving end of one of our earliest “sneaky videos” a couple of years ago when we decided we wanted to add video coverage to our adventurous portrait shoots. We didn’t really know what we wanted to actually do, we just knew we wanted to have video involved. Fusion slideshow? An Instagram short? Virtual Reality? We didn’t know. Just something inspired by technology and the photos in Harry Potter.

Here is the video that we created from their shoot.

Engagement – Clare and Simon

So 13 years a photographer and I had never done the photoshoot I had wanted to at Crows Nest National Park. Until three months ago, that is.
Considering it’s basically next door to Toowoomba this is crazy so I’m stoked we could finally do it.
Clare and Simon “like low-key hiking in national parks, packing picnics to enjoy on the way. Trips to the beach usually include detours along the ‘scenic route’ to check out local heritage hotspots”
And Crows Nest Falls was on their list. And mine! So when we met up for our engagement shoot call out, it was decided pretty quick.
Low key hiking was put the test, though, as just prior to sunset we decided to hike up to the top lookout. Not a long hike, but this was in July, when the sun sets at basically 5pm and takes less than 30 seconds to do so. Luckily we had adventurous head lamps!

I really like engagements. As much as I like weddings. They are separate things to us, not a practise run. A time in life (and a photoshoot if that’s your style, it’s ours!) to enjoy on it’s own merits. Unless you’re aiming for a cool Offbeat Bride feature, then chances are you won’t go rock climbing, or national park scrambling or dirt bike riding on your wedding day. But you can for an engagement shoot! And that’s why I love them. I get to have adventures I’ve never had before and you get to have an awesome adventure documented with the person you love.
