Cartin family get beachy

Saturday mornings are for cleaning the house, doing the washing, running all over town to kid's sporting matches. They're busy, full of hustle and bustle as we all try to get the things we need to do completed to we can really relax into the weekend.

One such Saturday morning I took some time out from the run of the mill Saturday morning stuff and photographed the Cartin family.

There's Tess: spirited, enigmatic and a rabble rouser.



Charlotte: serene, intelligent and full of warmth.



And the youngest Jemima: independent, charismatic and a little girl going places.



We ventured down to where the river meets the ocean at Barwon Heads. It's a truly magical spot, but holds significant meaning for Dave. He's grown up here in Barwon Heads, and wanted photos that captured the widely recognised Barwon Heads bridge before it is redeveloped.

The wood work on this bridge can tell so many stories.


I dragged this old yet entirely wonderful couch down onto the beach. It was well worth the heaving and trudging through the thick sand to get it there.





My two favourite photos from our session. I just love Charlote's expression in this one. So much going on in that little head.



And this photo speaks for itself.




This is the wonderful slideshow from the session.




Hanging out on the beach in bare feet with me jeans rolled up getting to know a family. The perfect way to escape the Saturday morning chores.
