A couple of months back we met this lovely couple, Pip and Alex at Avoca Beach., Central Coast Visiting from Texas (but Pip being Australian) we were expecting to do a family portrait session. When we arrived at the beautiful beachfront property at Avoca Beach, Central Coast we were caught a little off guard when Pip shows us to the room with her hanging wedding dress! However having shot millions of weddings, we were very well prepared for this shoot! Pip and Alex had actually already tied the knot overseas in Texas however wanted a wedding photoshoot at Avoca Beach, Central Coast which we were all for. With Mum and Dad there to help look after the little one, we set off with Pip and Alex at Avoca Beach, Central Coast for a little afternoon stroll at Avoca Beach, Central Coast. Alex in his tux and Pip in her beautiful white gown against the Avoca Beach, Central Coast glow was magic. Not too long before sunset we quickly called Mum, Dad and baby over for a few family portraits at Avoca Beach, Central Coast – the perfect opp on this beautiful afternoon at Avoca Beach, Central Coast. Thanks again for the fun afternoon at Avoca Beach, Central Coast Alex and Pip. We will surely hit you guys up when we visit Texas – hopefully soon when lockdown is done and dusted for good.
We love weekday weddings, it gets us out of the office and away from the computer for the day which is a bit of a treat for us when we edit images all day every day (except on the weekends when we shoot!). Doubly excited for Sasha and Andy’s wedding because the location of the wedding was The Pines Campground Martinsville, a place we had never shot. In fact, The Pines Campground Martinsville was a place that we had never even heard of!
So we set out and drove north from Avoca Beach for The Pines Campground Martinsville and Google Maps was not our friend that day. As we got closer to The Pines Campground Martinsville, it felt like we were get farther away and this little gem of a location was not so easy to find. To add fuel to the fire, the petrol gauge was seriously low and we panicked and made the executive decision to back track away from The Pines Campground Martinsville 20 minutes to the servo. As it turned out, we were actually only 50 metres down the road from The Pines Campground Martinsville and because we are (well try to be) super organised, we made it to The Pines Campground Martinsville right in the knick of time.
It was our first time meeting Sasha and Andy at their elopement at The Pines Campground Martinsville and like so many couples Covid had disrupted their plans. With Andy’s parents and family living in the UK, it was impossible to have the family reunited and the travel-loving couple decided an elopement at The Pines Campground Martinsville was the way to go. It was an overcast day, which really worked in our favour, as it gave us nice even light and we did not need to worry about harsh, speckled lighting a bright day would have brought us. A beautiful and intimate ceremony with 6 of their dearest was enjoyed, followed by a quick stroll through the pines and a delicious smorgasbord with flowing wine and sparkling. Sasha and Andy’s love for dancing shone and although there was no dance floor, DJ or band, the small group danced in the afternoon light with not a care in the world!
Thank you Sasha and Andy for letting us capture your beautiful elopement and thanks for introducing us to this location, might need to bring the family up for a little shoot ourselves!
Another gorgeous family portrait session on the Central Coast NSW. How incredibly lucky are we to have this gem on the Central Coast NSW literally down the road from us – a family portrait photographer dream.
We had a lot of fun on this shoot on the Central Coast NSW and so glad this family of five decided to drive up to the Central Coast NSW from Sydney for the afternoon for their family portrait session on the Central Coast NSW, just a stone throw away compared to America, where these guys are originally from. We started at Putty Beach, for this family portrait session on the Central Coast NSW, where we were spoilt with some ocean mist, plus we pretty much had the beach all to ourselves before jumping into the car to drive up to Bouddi National Park Central Coast NSW – our fav spot just at the start of the Box Head walking trail. We absolutely love this spot for family portraits on the Central Coast NSW with the ocean views right out to Palm Beach. Too many gorgeous images to show case and I wish could have posted them all, however here are a few of our favourites on the Central Coast NSW.
Now is the perfect time to book in your family portrait photography with us on the Central Coast NSW. We love shooting in Winter, for a number of reasons. Firstly, as Central Coast wedding photographers, pretty much every weekend is dedicated to wedding photography, however during Winter, we have a lot more available weekends to shoot family portraits on the Central Coast NSW. Secondly, the beaches and parks tend to be less busy so we don’t need to worry about people in the background – you pretty much have the beach to yourself, perfect for a family portrait session on the Central Coast NSW! Bonus – A LOT less mozzies to deal with too! Thirdly, without day light savings, family portrait sessions on the Central Coast NSW tend to start a little earlier compared to during the Summer. This is great news for parents with little ones so the kids aren’t getting as tired, hungry and cranky. Lastly, there is just something about that Winter golden glow for family portrait sessions on the Central Coast NSW. The light is softer for longer giving that warm soft touch to images that aren’t harsh with strong shadows and overly bright highlights.
With the Winter break just around the corner, it’s a great time to book your family portrait session on the Central Coast NSW. Contact us for packages.
Looking back over the past couple of years, we have been so fortunate to shoot so many amazing families on the Central Coast NSW. Even during a world pandemic, we spent some bright sunny afternoons with happy, loving families on the Central Coast NSW, which really did solidify the fact that family really is the most important thing in the world. Here are a few snippets of some of the beautiful families we have shot on the Central Coast NSW. Coming into the cooler months, the weddings tend to ease off a little and its just the perfect time for a family portrait session. The light is softer, social outings and commitments tend to calm down and families are spending more time with one another and have more time to relax on a weekend afternoon for a family portrait session on the Central Coast NSW. Spaces are filling up quickly though, so if a family portrait session on the Central Coast NSW has been something you have been thinking about, drop us an email and lets book a family portrait session on the Central Coast NSW in! As we have all experienced, a lot can happen in a year so don’t delay it any further – precious memories captured in time are always moments that you can look back on and appreciate.
We at Central Coast Wedding and Portrait Photographer were absolutely in love with this family and the beautiful light we had for their family portrait the other week. We spent a beautiful afternoon at the park where, surprise surprise, most family photographers usually hang out to take breathtaking and timeless images for amazing people, such as the case with our lovely family. We at Central Coast Wedding and Portrait Photographer were lucky enough to have the best light to capture this photogenic family. Making my job as a Central Coast Wedding and Portrait Photographer so easy, just simply placed them in beautiful light and the portrait images speak for themselves.
