Fall fun in the backyard | Fall family portrait


When Ashley called to book the next session for her daughter Sawyer’s “Watch Me Grow” program she knew that she wanted a fall family portrait this time.

We were excited to hear that they had just moved house to a wonderful home with a backyard to die for.  Not only has their yard got plenty of space for the family to enjoy, cedar rail fences and an old rustic garden shed, it also backs onto beautiful bush.  Sounded like ‘country in the city’ for sure. We couldn’t wait to see it.

The appointed day was bright and warm and the fallen leaves had been left as a multicoloured blanket specially for the shoot. As you can imagine, we were totally spoiled for choice for locations.

It is always so much fun to watch a family grow over the years and Ashley and Scott have created a beautiful home for their two adorable children.  Sawyer’s big brother Jaxson was thrilled to show us his favourite climbing tree and made sure that Sawyer didn’t get all the attention!

We just wanted to know if the house next door was for sale!
