The Kidgredients Family | Outdoor Family Photography

There are some people you meet and you just click. My good friend Kylie from the amazing food blog Kidgredients is one of those people. Besides having a fabulous name(!) she's just a genuinely nice, funny & down-to-earth gal. Every time I hang out with her I come away with a sore face & tummy from all of the smiling & laughing.

So when she got in touch with me to help her update her family photos I was super excited. If the rest of her beautiful family were anything like Kylie, we were going to have a ball... and we did!

On a gorgeous Sunday afternoon we headed over to one of their favourite family outing spots, Cordeaux Dam. Kylie and her family love to spend time exploring and having fun at the Dam, so when we were chatting about potential locations for their photos it was a natural fit. I love tagging along with families as they spend their weekend doing something they love and do regularly, in a place that's familiar to them. Familiarity makes everyone feel that little bit more comfortable & relaxed and allows me to capture the moments as they happen, rather than having everyone posing & feeling awkward.

With lots of beautiful trees, the Dam, picnic spots and a kids playground, Cordeaux Dam really was the perfect setting for capturing some relaxed, heart-felt & real-life connections between Kylie and her loves...
