There is always a very special bond between a mother and son, but there was something about Cristiane and Riley’s relationship that had that ‘little extra’ attached. The way he looked at her, the moments they shared without words and the gentlest touch. I loved capturing them early on a Sunday morning as the sun started to warm the world around us. Such a cold start, but well worth it for the beautiful ‘ photography’ light and it is often the best time for young kids before they get tired later on in the day.
I smiled as soon as I saw the pair of them waiting for me near the Monkeys at the Launceston City Park. Both in their bright red outfits complimenting their gorgeous complexions, huge smiles to greet me. Riley had a minute of shyness which disappeared quickly and he was just so much fun to photograph.
