The Wall Family – Family Photography by Kirsten Simcox21 Sep, 2015

Early one Sunday morning I photographed the extended Wall family out at Perfume Point beside the sea in Napier. This family’s photoshoot reaffirmed to me what I love most about photographing people.

For me, its not about getting everyone perfectly posed with perfect expressions and smiling sweetly for the camera. For me, its observing relationships and personalities and being ready to get the photo at the moment when these two things come together. This is the magic moment when the smiles are natural and the interaction is real.

The core Wall family is made up of mum, Megan with her five beautiful daughters.  With partners, husbands and children thrown into the mix, I reckon family get-togethers with this crew would be a rowdy affair but with heaps of fun and laughter.
