Capturing an unusual family can be a tricky task for even the most seasoned photographer. When you have a bearded tattoo artist, a pin up obsessed writer and their creatively unique 8 year old, you need a photographer with vision. That is exactly what we got when we sat down with Bron to discuss our unusual, family shoot.
You need to understand, we have never had a family shoot done. Not counting the one quick shot captured by the same photographer at our son’s 6th birthday party, two years earlier. So, this was a big deal for us. To make things even more challenging, we are in the process of relocating and hardly get to spend quality time together. So, merging a fun family outing with an interesting shoot was essential. That’s where Bron’s amazing idea came in! Being mildly obsessive about all things bizarrely beautiful, I wanted something that not only captured my little family, but raised questions (and eyebrows) as well. The idea of having a vintage 50’s inspired family shoot in the cemetery hit the nail on the head!
From the get go, I left the concept and shoot ideas to Bron and I handled the wardrobe and makeup bits myself. What she came up with was not only thought provoking, but exceptionally beautiful as well! That is exactly what anyone wants from a photoshoot, thought provoking, mildly creepy but still gorgeous to look at! With the help of Penny who smoothed dresses, fixed suspenders and entertained Riley during intervals, we had an exceptional team! Everything from making sure that my eyelashes stayed put, to coaxing our son into somber poses was covered! Which made it so much fun for us to have our 15 seconds of fame in front of the camera!
The femme fatale meets Dexter dad shots, coupled with our sullen Sheriff made for visually delightful images that we are all so pleased with! Although the shoot was over really quickly (or we were just having too much fun), we have a collection of stunning images to get framed for our new home!
I couldn’t think of a photographer who captured my family better than Bronwyn did. She made us all look so much better than we do in “real” life, and created memories that we can enjoy forever!
Written from my clients perspective, thank you Cashe.

I did a fashion and portrait session in December with the lovely Tima. She is a huge fan of Lana Del Rey and absolutely loves her 60’s inspired style.
Here is a preview from Tima’s session.

This studio shoot was in celebration of Lady N’s 30th birthday. For this occasion she requested to do something she said always dreams about. ‘I want to be Wonder Woman!’ On top of that, she wanted to do a few vintage / pinup styled photos.
This was an incredibly fun shoot, a big challenge and probably the shoot that has taken me the longest time to edit… EVER, but it was a more unusual and creative shoot than the usual things that come my way, so i took my time with the creative editing and went with it.

This is from a recent boudoir session with the lovely Lady S, and it is one of my all time favourite images.
This is what Lady S had to say: Hi bronwyn, I just want to say thank you sooooo much for today. It was so much fun and you were very professional and enthusiastic. I cannot wait to see the end result. Thank you
