Family Stylised session: Dani & Jack, Modern Renaissance

Stylised family session Murwillumbah

A journey back in time…… Stylised family session.

Nestled under camphor laurel trees on their little family farm in stokers siding, our vision came to life.
See, Just a few weeks earlier Danni and I were chatting about how we would blend her fiancé’ Jack’s love of, Lord of the Rings and her deep admiration of John Waterhouse into one. Danni shared her ideas and I set out to meld the two styles, into what is now affectionately known as “modern renaissance”.

We hand-picked the most delicious offerings from Waterhouse, to create this simple family styled session with a dash of old world charm.
Down to the finest detail, there are elements of renaissance nostalgia. From the modest natural linen dress little Araminta is wearing, to the unassuming removal of a modern-day collar from jack’s shirt. 
Like Waterhouse’s work, this styled family session would not have been complete without the addition of a floral headpiece, soft dewy makeup and simple flowing hair to touch on the feminine elegance his work portrays.

“The shoot was incredible…… as we all walked down to the site in our outfits Katrina provided I felt like my vision had come to life. Katrina made us all feel so relaxed and special and even was able to make my sleep deprived eleven-month-old smile. The photos turned out breathtaking and exceeded my expectations beyond measure. The whole experience was just amazing and will definitely be booking again….for everything and every occasion! ” Danni & Jack

Full Testimonal:

Moved to Tears….

I received Dani and Jacks testimonial last night and when I read it I got a little emotional. To be receiving reviews and testimonials like this warms the heart and makes me feel so privileged to be able to provide beautiful creative images.

” When I gave birth to my daughter I was so overwhelmed by the brutal initiation of motherhood, that I never got newborn portraits taken and regretted not capturing her at such a fleeting and magical age. So I knew I had to do something really special for her approaching first birthday. When I came across some stunning family portraits Katrina had done, I could tell she had an eye for capturing the unselfconscious beauty of children and nature and that she would completely understand the aesthetic I wanted for my shoot.

I contacted her on Facebook and from our first conversation we were exchanging visual inspirations and workshopping ideas.
It was such an exciting collaboration and she really made sure she understood my vision, organising everything from set designer to hair and makeup, to wardrobe (which was no small feat, as most of my `collaborating` was sending lists of random artists I loved and hoping she would understand what I wanted to achieve).

The shoot was incredible, the hair and makeup girls worked their magic on me, while the set designer transformed my creek into a renaissance forest and as we all walked down to the site in our outfits Katrina provided I felt like my vision had come to life. Katrina made us all feel so relaxed and special and even was able to make my sleep deprived eleven-month-old smile. The photos turned out breathtaking and exceeded my expectations beyond measure.

The whole experience was just amazing and will definitely be booking again….for everything and every occasion! ”
