Mix a little foolishness with your serious plans. It is lovely to be serious at the right moment.

Something caught Scooby's serious attention, so Sharyn and Tracy thought they'd join him.

Then they both cracked up....

Well I promised some 'not-so-serious' shots of Sharyn and Tracy.  So here are a some more shots. There are actually quite a few 'silly' pics.  Sharyn and Tracy are a very happy-go-lucky couple and love to have a bit fun and laugh at themselves.

So this shoot was a lot of fun and we spent a fair bit of time laughing at all the silly things they both did and said.  Yes, they wanted the nice couple shots but I was told in no uncertain terms that both of them liked to joke around and have fun and they wanted that to reflect in their photos.

Consequently, I took a lot of sequence shots, catching them both during serious and silly moments and sometimes going from one to the other and back again.  Needless to say, I stayed a tad longer than what I would normally do for a standard couple/family shoot.  I think it got close to 3-4 hours later and it was getting dark and I thought I should head home to my little family. Oops! :)

Sharyn and Tracy also love their pets!  So we got quite a few of mainly Scooby (pictured) in some photos doing what dogs do best...looking cute.

Even sillier shots to follow, but I'll finish with one more of Scooby.

**P.S.  Would you like to have photos taken of your family and pets, but don't really like the idea of driving to a location?  Then why not have them taken at home like Tracy and Sharyn in an environment where you and your family (including your pets) feel comfortable?  The more relaxed you are, the better chance there is of capturing all of you at your best!

Sharyn & Tracy - A Most Wonderful Couple... / Brisbane Portrait Photographer

Sharyn and Tracy are a couple who have been together for over 10 years.   I have known Sharyn (on the left) for nearly five years now through our association with the Defence Force.   We struck up a great friendship and found we had quite a few things in common - one of them being photography. Most of all, I've always known her to be wonderfully at ease and relaxed. She always has a smile on her face and is great for sharing laughs.   It's always fun when Sharyn is around!  She's also very inspiring and keeps herself fit and active. 

So it goes without saying that when I met Tracy, I found her as lovely as Sharyn.  Though Tracy is definitely a little mischievous...and the complete opposite!   They are like chalk and cheese.  I soon found out that they hadn't had any professional photos taken together.  Plenty of happy snaps, especially during their travels with friends.  But no real professional photos to speak of.  Sharyn admitted she didn't like having her photo taken.  So I was honoured and delighted to have taken some relaxed and engaging images of this beautiful couple.

Mind you, it was quite a different photo shoot.   I was treated to nibblies and oven grilled Kransky sausages (yummo!  I've only ever eaten them cold) after the shoot and took lots of snaps during preparations and wines (no wines for me of course) and there were lots of laughs and conversation.

This is the part I really love about photography - engaging with clients and getting to know who they really are.  People are so diverse and interesting if we take the time to talk to them, listen and open our hearts and minds.

So these are just a few images I wanted to share which were shot at Sharyn and Tracy's home in Brisbane.  I'll share some more down the track to include the rest of their little family of the dog variety and also some with them doing 'silly'  and fun stuff.

Ciao for now...
