Needham Family Photos – Oakey Qld

It was so great catching up with Julie and her family out at Oakey for some family photos. The puppies came along as well, so it really was the whole family. The drive out to Oakey from Toowoomba alone, was just beautiful. As was the sunset on the drive back home!

Julie chose a park with creek running through it for the perfect location. The sun was still pretty high in the sky even though it was late afternoon. That’s an Aussie summer for you. But even still, the way the light filtered through the trees and backlit most of the shots, was really beautiful.

Julie will always be just a bit spesh to the Cherished Studios family, since she was our middle boys daycare mum for a while. We love you Julie!

The girls were just personality plus, especially Samantha! And I love me a bit of sass. There were plenty of giggles, that’s for sure. The boys were awesome too and it was so great to see their brotherly bond, even jumping in on a friendly arm wrestle.

At the end of the session I grabbed both Julie and Matthew, and we shot some couples photos of just the two of them. It’s all too easy to forget to focus on the leaders of the pack when you book in for a family photography session. I love grabbing shots of Mum and Dad, even if sometimes there is some hesitation, these shots always get chosen in the final gallery. Here are just a few of my favourites from the session. 

Thanks again Julie for asking me to take your family photos. I had such a great time with your beautiful family!
