This was a new location for us, as most clients want to have photos on the beach, which we love, but occasionally we get the opportunity to try something a bit different, and we were so happy with the location that Adrian and Alana had decided on for their family session.
We met with the owner David the day before the session, and he gave us a bit of a history lesson on the farm and explained that as a youth he would have to cross the Maroochy River by boat to get to work every day on the farm. And if they had to go into Maroochydore they travelled back up through Nambour and down again. Isn’t it just crazy how much we take for granted our local infrastructure and how different things must have been back in the day. I really enjoyed chatting with David and it gave me a real sense of the property, I’m sure we’ll be back there again sometime.
We basked in the late afternoon sunlight, with only a gentle breeze to keep things nice and cool. This property has some wonderful locations for photos, including the derelict shed, but we didn’t venture too close as it’s keepers (two rather large carpet snakes) were on hand to keep an eye on things. As the afternoon glow of the sun slowly sank below the horizon we decided to have a little fun with the kids and a few sparklers (everybody loves sparklers) and we made some long exposure images with some interesting outcomes. Overall we were wrapped with the images we produced and are happy to share a few with you here.
We can’t wait for the wedding next year Adrian and Alana.
