Meet The Eastmure Family. Peter, Alena, Natasha and Lilly make this family. A gorgeous…let me say it again..GORGEOUS family!
Alena is from Belarus. She moved here roughly 9 years ago and married a nice kiwi bloke from Hawkes Bays, Peter. They went on to have the 2 dazzling girls you see just below.
We met at Woodend beach because Alena wanted some true New Zealand beauty.
That’s what I love about Woodend beach. It’s great for diversity because it has a wee forest leading onto the beach. It’s my favourite beach spot in Canterbury.
This is Natasha. 6 years old, but have a conversation with her. You wouldn’t think she was only 6. She is a bright cookie and not shy at all.
Lily is 18 months old. She is a ray of sunshine in anyones day.
I spoke about craving light like this in my last blog post. My prayers were answered in full force. I was one happy camper!
Natasha is about to commence Russian lessons. Of all the languages to be bilingel in. Russian, alongside English is a pretty cool one to know.
Maybe you’ll be able to teach your Dad a few more words Natasha. :)
This was one of those beaches with endless amounts of driftwood. I do love how some people build little driftwood houses for the amusement of others that come along. The girls really enjoyed it!
I always like to capture the parents as well. Peter and Alena are gorgeous together. I love how some people are just so at ease, not just infront of the camera but with each other as well. Makes my job a whole heap easier! :)
Everything about this image is scrummy!
I was really guttered, there used to be a little hut right beside the surf life tower and I used it in my Flaunt that Dress shoot. It’s gone now :( I don’t know why. I did the shoot AFTER the earthquake. Darn it, it was such a cute wee hut too and I had intended to use again and again.
And then a must have clothes change. Natasha had to show off her cute wee dress, not to mention some ballet moves. And Lilly copying everything Natasha does, wanted in on that action!
Peek a Boo!
Wow, what an afternoon. Great family, great weather and great vibes. Thank you guys for such a fun afternoon. I am loving the images and I can’t wait to show you the rest!
