Family photo fun

At the start of the weekend, I traveled to Inverell to meet wit the Eshman family.  Brother and sister Greg and Jo were home for the weekend for Dad's 60th birthday and they took the opportunity of the family being together to get some family photographs done.

Gone are the days of stuffy old studio poses where everyone has to be looking straight at the camera with a stiff smile on their face.  I enjoy photographing families as they are, naturally, casually and comfortably.

Sure, there's always going to be some posing involved, and of course, there's got to be smiling involved as well, but photographing families as they interact naturally with each other is gold!

Here is a photo which captures the character of a family perfectly (and also another one which shows family photographs can be HEAPS of fun!!
