Hot Air Ballooning [Canberra Family Photographer]

I photographed this family for the first time, Autumn last year.   Their story is one of love and courage as they have battled through challenges and come out the other side shining.

One of my most favourite things about my job, is opportunity to spend time with families, and  I am grateful for the opportunity that I have to connect with people, and to share their love.   For this family, their desire to live life to the fullest.

This is not your average family session.  This is a Photo-Documentary.  An idea that started from a dream, and came together in the form of a journey over the heights of Canberra in a hot-air balloon.

For me, this was my first ever time in a hot-air balloon to, and I can’t imagine sharing this time with a more beautiful family.  Documenting their morning with their little boy, who transformed from being understandably cautious, to awe and amazement, to sheer delight, as we sailed high above the Autumn leaves of this beautiful city.

A big shout-out needs to go to Balloon’s Aloft, for taking us all on an adventure of a life time, and allowing us to create such a special memory together.

For those interested in a “Photo-Documentary”, please let me know, because I just love doing them.  If you would like to learn a little bit more about them, please read HERE.
