The best kind of family portraits are taken in a casual setting where everyone is relaxed and having fun. This is exactly what it was like with Henry and his parents. As they were visiting Perth for a short time, I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to meet with the kid. It was a very sunny Sunday morning in Cottelsoe. The cafe Bachetta at the beach was busy with people who were after late morning coffee and we just made it there before the kitchen closed.

The boy had amazing eyes. I couldn’t stop looking at them. He recently ‘learned’ that he had a tongue so he endlessly poked his tongue out which made the shoot all the more fun.
