As a professional family photographer, I really love it when a family comes in with a little bit of quirk.
"normal" families are boring, so when these guys rocked up I knew i was in for a good time.
We blasted loud punk music, there were arm wrestling competitions and a lot of fun.
This shot was unplanned, all the kids playing on their phones while i set up lights for the next shots. a generation gap where the dad was the only one to not feel the draw of social media.
I often find that the spontaneous, unposed shots are the ones that stand out the most. Images that capture a little personality.
This image was entered as a part of my portfolio for the WAEPPA (Western Australia Epson Professional Photography Awards) where I won the title of Family photographer of the year.
