Its lovely when you get the chance to create something fresh and unexpected for someone, and this is what happened with this little family shoot.
A friend of Melissa and her family contacted us to say that they had had a family portrait done in the city by a very large name studio, but were so upset with the results and having spent loads of money on them. They asked if we would take them out and do a shoot with them.
We said of course and decided to meet them at Parramatta Lake, to make some really relaxed informal portraits, as far away from their bad studio experience as possible.
Parramatta Lake is such a beautiful setting, especially in the late afternoon light, and not many people closer to the city even know about it. We had a great time and they loved the different feel to the shots.
