winter | mornington peninsula family photographer

What has happened to summer?! We have had a few days that showed the promise of summer, got us all excited for the warmer days and then suddenly we are back in the chills of winter!! Crazy weather ... but to be truthful that is one of the things I love about Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula... the weather is always interesting!

No matter what the weather the beach is a wonderful place for a family session and as a Mornington Peninsula local one of my favourite beaches for photography sessions is along the McCrae foreshore as there are so many little spots for snuggly close "moments" as well as a lovely expanse of gorgeous beach for those fabulous wide shots! 

I thought that I would share some images form a winter beach session I did a number of weeks ago. It was a funny old day and we had decided that with the exception of rain we would shoot no matter how wild it was. I just love how the beach changes from season to season and in these images you can see she has her winter dress on with all of the seaweed washed up on the shoreline from the stormy seas we have been having. The sand was COLD and the wind was woolly but we were suitably rugged up and for just a brief moment the dark and heavy clouds parted and we got some beautiful sunshine. 

If you would like to book your own family lifestyle session then please contact me for more information!
