On the pier

I met the loveliest family last weekend!  Those of you who follow me on Facebook might remember that I donated a photo shoot to the Pink Lady Art Exhibition Auction last year.  My mother is a breast cancer survivor and it’s a cause very close to my heart.  The Exhibition successfully raised $50,000 by 2012, it’s fifth anniversary, and this family was the winner of my shoot.  I couldn’t wait to finally meet them, and we were fortunate to have a bright sunny day in the middle of autumn.  We met at the pier in St Kilda, and these are some of my favourites from our morning together.

Thank you so much Tracy, Cameron, Morgan, Fraser and Mackenzie, and I hope you love your photos as much as I do.
