Boho Stylised Sessions – Mummy and Me

Boho styling is full of life, culture, and interesting items. It flies in the face of modern sensibilities and embraces the carefree, the relaxed and the unusual. The essence of bohemian clothing is focusing on free and flowy fabrics. It is for these reasons a bohemian styled session is much more relaxed and is centered around embracing the imperfection of family life and nature.

Having such structure when capturing families and children is often negated by the confines of a studio or set environment, however, by allowing the session to flow naturally we create and capture truly authentic moments.

For our session on a lush local property in burringbar we hosted three families with five children aged between two and four years old. It was a lively afternoon watching the kids interact and play but also quite peaceful as there was a genuine relaxed feel, with no pressures to pose perfectly or sit still. Rebecca our stylist did a truly incredible job sourcing and putting together our set, all the little details came together seamlessly and were the perfect reflection of our styling brief.

A Bohemian stylised session is a perfect way to capture relaxed real moments in a beautiful setting. You will arrive with nothing else to do except enjoy the afternoon with your children, everything is taken care of.

Boho, Bamboo and an urban landscape – Who doesn’t love an impromptu photo session?

On a Sunday late last year, my wonderful makeup artist Amanda and I were all set for a studio session with a booked client when they had to postpone. So I said why don’t you comedown anyway and do a shoot? she agreed and we whipped up a a style with a combination of items she brought with her and from what I had in the props cupboard.

Amanda said: I thought this shoot was really fun and unexpected. I was able to do the makeup as well as be the model. I was extremely happy with how the pictures turned out. It’s always a great experience working with Katrina, she is a very talented photographer!

We first ventured out to an old heritage homestead just on the outskirts of my home town Murwillumbah. There was a great mass of clumping bamboo which has seen better days and I thought this was the perfect backdrop to start with, so away we went. PS: the homestead is called Lisnagar and I was married here way back in 99 🙂

We then headed into south Murwillumbah to a quaint street called ‘Prospero street’ to a once large two-story department store built in 1900 – The historic Holston Emporium. I managed to find with the help of my friend Christine an a few images of the building in the days of old. These images were found at http://trove.nla.gov.au/.

lastly we ducked down to the corner of prospero street to this fantastic broken wall, to add some contrasting colour to the day. Both Amanda and I had a great time on our impromptu urban boho photo session.
