REAL LIFE FAMILY SESSION
Meet the Russell Family.
Corrine is a self-confessed 'not a family photo person'. She thought family photos were always too posed and tacky and not for her. But after seeing this type of session and realising these years of her daughters lives are passing so quickly, she knew she wanted some real memories of the fun stuff they all do at home together. Pancakes and dancing in the kitchen, playing piano and guitar together, ice blocks on the front steps and running under the sprinkler. We later headed down to their local spot on Talle Creek for a swim before the sun set. Her girls couldn't wipe the smiles off their faces and Mum and Dad got to enjoy a quality afternoon doing all their favourite things with their girls.

What they say...
Her attention to detail is beautiful and she captured our everyday life – the unspoken things, emotions, the way we look at each other, and the friendship between our two girls. You can't stage that.
I've always been reluctant to get family photos done because so many of them look staged and clichéd. I was looking for someone who could capture candid moments of our family having fun rather than standing in positions for portraits. That's when I found Heidi.
Heidi made us feel totally comfortable and let me choose the locations, outfits, props and activities... to tell the story of the things our family usually do together. She asked me a few questions before our shoot which was great because when she arrived she knew what I wanted, which meant we could relax. I'm not a crier but when I opened the slideshow I did shed some tears. I highly recommend her if you're looking for photos that share the story of your family. And if you're considering working with her: just trust in the process because Heidi is a master.
