Family photography session for Tanya Rein

This weeks family photography session was for Tanya & her beautiful family. This is Tanya’s story. . . .

“My story.

I came across a post requesting children and their instruments for a photography session and as my daughter plays violin I thought why not. Three years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and I had been battling treatments for quite a while and thought I was in the clear. Not long after I responded I had follow up scans which revealed more cancer, now in my bones. So when Karen contacted me, and I realised they were based in Brisbane, and with looming treatments I sadly declined the offer being financially too much for us at this time. Karen understood completely and the call ended.

A couple of hours later I received a call back from Karen, and it brought me to tears. Dean and Karen so very kindly offered my family a free shoot, and a kind soul by the name of John had offered to pay for my hair and makeup to accompany the session.

When you are faced with battles, memories and time together become so very important. And what Dean, Karen and John have done for us is nothing short of amazing. These images of us together are priceless. Treasured memories that will bring us a smile for many years.

So much fun was had, loads of laughter.

Thank you so much.

Jon, Tanya, Shayde, Summer and Kael Rein

Having photographed Lesley in the past, we decided to video this session to show you what one of our mother/daughter sessions were like. We also love photographing dancers and since Alexi is a keen dancer, we took the opportunity to add a few dance images. We hope you enjoy the results.

Mother daughter session with Rennae & her amazing girls.

This is the 3rd session in our inspiration series of photography sessions where we focus on a person or family that has undergone a traumatic or transformative event and has emerged with a story to tell which we hope will inspire others. We were heart broken when we read Rennae’s story and we felt that we had to gift her a free session to give her beautiful images that will forever be important to her.
This week we had the privilege of photographing Rennae & her 3 beautiful girls, Yvette, Monique & Josephine. After years of trauma and stress, Rennae felt it was now time for her little family to have some professional photographs done for the first time after little Monique was badly and nearly fatally burnt in an accident 2 years ago. We loved photographing this strong little family and documenting this milestone in their life, and, what a brave and positive little girl Monique is.
