An Afternoon With The Dellow Family – Portraiture in Perth, Australia
– The Dellow Family –
A few months ago I photographed my cousin’s wedding in Australia. Their good friends Lorraine and Charles were at the wedding and later got in touch with me to do a family portrait session here in Perth. I was delighted to hear from them and so excited to photograph their sweet family! James is full of fun energy and Eloise is one of the cutest babies I have ever met! They are an amazing family with a great story…
“Charles and I have been together since 2001 and have lived and travelled overseas, before coming back to Perth to settle down. I was born in Perth and Charles was born in New Zealand, and he had only just come to Perth a few months before we met. We were married in 2009 in Thailand. James is almost 3 and Eloise is 4 months old. We wanted to do photos at South Perth Foreshore because, simply put, I think it’s one of the prettiest places in Perth. I go there often with the kids for coffee and play dates.”
Lorraine and Charles are such a sweet couple and they are wonderful parents. I loved spending the afternoon with them! She later wrote me the sweetest message about our session…
“We didn’t know what to expect of a professional family shoot and didn’t want to end up with a lot of ‘formal’ looking photos. It was so great to work with you because, even though you coached us a bit, you encouraged us to be ourselves and be natural. Your relaxed and positive approach definitely made us feel relaxed in return. Your friendly rapport with James was great. We are so happy we got to work with you while you are in Australia as you are a very talented photographer.”
I am beyond thankful to have met the Dellow Family and for all the great photography experiences here in Australia. I am looking forward to coming back again some day soon!
Enjoy! – Katie K.
