A couple of weeks ago I met Mike, Hannah & their beautiful daughters for a family shoot with a difference. It's definitely a first for me getting a helicopter ride for family portraits! Mike is a pilot for High Country Helicopters and naturally helicopters are a big part of this family's life so it was fitting to fly to a location for photos rather than the usual drive. We chose a tussock covered hill overlooking the Waikaia Valley and were treated with a stunning day.
I had a fun afternoon with this family. Meeting awesome down-to-earth people like Hannah & Mike is the favourite part of my job. Of course I love creating portraits too that I know are going to be well cherished! And I just found out that Hannah & Mike are both involved in a wedding we're shooting this November so I look forward to catching up with them again soon!
The girls, Ariel and Evie are absolutely gorgeous. When I first arrived at the Thom's, Ariel asked if she could have a photograph with her pup Dotty. I absolutely adore these photographs - SO CUTE!
Then we headed off up the mountain for photos.
I love this shot!
Awww those two wee teeth & that gorgeous smile!
Hannah & Mike, thank you so much for the opportunity to photograph your beautiful family! It has been a pleasure getting to know you all and I look forward to seeing you again in November if not before :-) xx
