I was contacted a few months ago by an incredible lady named Melinda. She and her family would be traveling up from Melbourne to have a holiday on the Gold Coast at Palazzo Versace. Melinda and her husband Adem make the trip to Versace a yearly occurrence but this trip was going to be a little extra special as this would be their first time as a family of three. They had welcomed their adorable son Isaac in May.
I have to admit I was VERY intimidated when I saw how beautiful this woman is and the examples that she sent through of the style of photos they wanted and they were A M A Z I N G! I really wasn’t sure whether she had booked the right photographer from the list of recommendations that Versace gave her (which I was pretty chuffed about hearing that they had referred me at all…….little ol’ me!) Well as soon as I met Melinda in the lobby and she was holding Isaac and he gave me the cutest little grin I then knew that I really needed to be the one to photograph that sweet bundle of joy! Melinda then changed into a stunning green gown while I got lots of baby cuddles and then we set off to capture this stunning family.
I am sure that you will agree that Adem, Melinda & Isaac are gorgeous subjects! I can not thank them enough for choosing me photograph them and I hope that their annual visit to Versace may even be accompanied by an annual family portrait by me 🙂
