But the weather man certainly underestimated the force of Mother Nature and not only did it rain, but I stood out in freezing winds and sleet, with snow falling on the Western Tiers behind me, while I photographed an extended family portrait shoot in Campbelltown recently. Luckily we changed venues and the photoshoot was held at the family sawmill just out of town. It couldn’t have been more perfect! Not only did it provide some shelter for the family including Great Grandmother Dot, Grandparents; Barry and Judy and their 4 children, spouses, partners and grandchildren including Aydon at 4 months of age, but it was such a meaningful place to them. The sawmill had been in the family for generations and it has just been sold. This meant extra special memories for all concerned.
Thankyou to Michelle for organising the shoot and an extra special thank you to Josie for lending me her extra jacket. I was so cold and wet by the end of the 2 hour shoot that i couldn’t even change lenses or turn the key in the ignition to drive home! But the photos are so worth it.
