Fabulous and stress free session. Works well with young and old alike. Highly recommended. Ayu chooses beautiful locations and instills confidence in her subjects”. Leanne, the client.

Sweet and kind words from Leanne was an added bonus to this fabulous day by the Molonglo River. This session took place in December 2018. It was my last session for the year, and we all had a tremendous time. We met up early one Saturday morning in one of my favourite places in Canberra. There were more activities there than usual, because the local Canoe Club coincidentally had an event too that day. But never mind that, the whole area, is not only beautiful, it is vast enough for all of us.

To have a beautiful mother-daughter family portrait they can keep and cherish for a long time was the goal of this session. Kai, the sweet teen, wanted a couple of extra good ones so she can use it for auditions and other things. Leanne, the mum, has never been keen on having her photographs taken, but she’s such a kind bubbly person with vibrant personality, that soon enough we got into our grooves and she became and looked more comfortable as the session went.

So many areas, spots, or corners in Molonglo Reach that worked super well as portrait backdrops, we were spoiled with choices. As one alternative we headed towards the back of the club house, with an interesting back wall . We spent the end of our session taking beautiful portraits of Kai. She is just beautiful and photogenic she makes my job really easy. We finished our photo session with big grins group selfie. As if the universe had been watching, the rain started straight away after we finished packing our stuff.

It was a fun day.
