The Ellis Family

Family photography with horses in a Healesville paddock

Tromping around outside in a horse paddock in the late afternoon with the Ellis family out in Healesville was pretty fantastic. I always appreciate it when families chose to do photos with their teenagers as so many people only think of doing family shoots while their kids are little. All stages of life are worth documenting. These photos were taken in a neighbouring paddock next to where the Ellis family are building their new home in Healesville. The light was ridiculously beautiful, we dodged some horse poo, climbed a fence and enjoyed the curious horses peering over my shoulder at what was going on.
