You could not get a classier family! It's no hiding that Ebony is a fashion forward gal, especially for down here in little ol' Albany, Western Australia. The average Joe certainly wouldn't turn up in a gorgeous white two piece, rockin tutu vibes and bold fur. But to add to that, the whole fam was glammin! It made for such a fun and creative shoot.
I'll be honest with you, the day of their session I was sick as a dog! I had been bed ridden for over a week with the flu, but when Ebony contacted me to do photos I couldn't resist! I was going insane at home, and was desperate for some fresh air and the chance to snap some pics.
It also didn't help that it had been pouring down with rain for most the weekend so we really had no idea what we were in for that afternoon. It turned out to be one of the most epic stormy shoots I've done! Between the dark clouds, and pockets of gorgeous dusk light it was phenomenal! Honestly, I have to wonder if God himself stopped time just for us, while we took in all His glorious beauty, because the moment we finished up and jumped into our cars it started to pour down with rain.
The Pitman's were great sports considering it was freezing cold and windy, and the fact I was a coughing, snuffling mess. It was for sure one of my favourite shoots yet. I love that there is a level of mystery and risk when it comes to photography. You often never know what you're walking into and must be trusting enough to let your surroundings guide you, making the most of those unexpected turns - a burst of sunlight cascading through the clouds, the way shadows hide and reveal those hidden moments. Everywhere I look is a story being told, and I am so stoked that I get to be a part of it!
