Playing it Coole at the Beach - Hawkes Bay family photography

Waipatiki Beach 2014

Cicra 2014, shoot no. 8. This year we took the annual Coole family photography story to the beach - though 'cold' rather than 'coole' was probably a more appropriate word! An impromptu game of baseball with Dad's childhood lucky glove had us all warmed up and chilled out. Often winter shoots need rescheduling for weather, which when you have one shot at it on a flying visit home from Singapore can add a bit of pressure. Fortunately this family seem to walk through life under a golden glow of made-to-order sunshine. Or at least they do when my camera is around. By making a location photography session an annual tradition, the Coole Family now have the most incredible visual time capsule of their boys growing up in all their hyperactive glory. And by telling that changing family story for them, it almost feels like I've become an itty-bitty part of it as well.
