Ballina Family Photographer ~ the Martys

October 08, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

I get to Lighthouse beach and it's cold and ridiculously windy. I have a family photo shoot here in 15 minutes. I wonder how brave the Martys are, how willing are they to embrace the crazy weather and just have some fun? Or will they postpone? I message mum Rebecca and she tells me they are up for it. Not long after, two cars arrive and a bunch of teenagers and their parents fall out, full of chatter and a few sideways glances at me, no doubt wondering whether I'll make them say cheese. I reassure them that there will be none of that and I just want them to hang out, have some fun and try to relax. We make our way to the beach and it's icy and the wind is whipping everyone's hair around. This could get interesting!

The occasions when people just go with the flow and allow themselves to be real in front of my lens...it's when you get gold. These are the times when I love what I do, when I get a peek into a beautiful family and their connections, when you see the best of people.

This is a family that laughs, that lives, that loves, that embraces their quirks and their weirdness and are up for an adventure.
I say thank you to the Martys for being brave and standing vulnerable in the cold, in front of my lens. Your weird is wonderful! northern rivers family portrait ballina family portrait northern rivers family portrait ballina family portrait northern rivers family portrait ballina family portrait northern rivers family portrait ballina family portrait northern rivers family portrait ballina family portrait northern rivers family portrait ballina family portrait northern rivers family portrait ballina family portrait northern rivers family portrait ballina family portrait northern rivers family portrait ballina family portrait northern rivers family portrait ballina family portrait northern rivers family portrait ballina family portrait northern rivers family portrait ballina family portrait northern rivers family portrait ballina family portrait northern rivers family portrait ballina family portrait northern rivers family portrait ballina family portrait
