i love photos in grassy fields with gorgeous, hazey afternoon light… when i see them in my travels i often wish id taken them and think to myself that i must shoot somewhere like that in the future… but i never shoot in fields because im pretty much a sydney city photographer which means cute houses and small gardens with the occasional park or busy beach here and there!
so you can imagine my excitement when i was asked to photograph the loveliest family who happen to live in sydney but on a large block of land complete with golden light and animals and long grass… i asked tania to send me a few snapshots of the paddocks so i could see if it was how i imagined and it was lovely!
boy did we work hard trying to get sienna to smile… she smiles all the time but just not when she is looking down my lens… tania, steve and jake tried every little trick they know and we were all exhausted from all our silliness… we managed to get a few smiles even though, in the moment, we were pretty sure we didnt! arent they just the sweetest family? thanks guys for a really lovely afternoon! rowe x
