Mother and Daughter Portrait session

for a milestone birthday

I recently worked with Elizabeth and her daughters, Sacha and Tiffany. Tiffany contacted me to arrange a special mother and daughter portrait session to celebrate Elizabeth's 70th milestone birthday.

It’s such an honour to get to work with women.
To witness such beautiful relationships firsthand.
And on top of that, to create legacy portraits that document this relationship. 
Tiffany and Sacha have a very loving and warm bond with their Mum. So I loved sharing this session in the studio with them.

Milestone birthday surprises

They had such a wonderful time together, and had planned a beautiful surprise birthday high tea after the session. Such a cute way to get all glammed up together without ruining the surprise!
Love and connection

We had so much fun with Elizabeth’s individual portraits. She loves Latin dancing, so we popped on a latin playlist and had her show us some moves. I really love the portraits we captured during her dance session. You can see and feel how much she loves to move. How much joy it brings her and really lights up her beautiful face.

Elizabeth is of Filipina heritage, so she also brought a traditional kimono (not to be confused with a Japanese kimono) dress to be photographed in.
When you look this good #70andfabulous

I recently shared an image from this session on Instagram. And this was one of the comments;

“Wait. Don’t tell me anyone in this photo is 70”

This family has seriously good genes, talk about 70 and fabulous!

For Mom’s 70th, it was really important for us to capture the family love and do it in a way that felt natural.

The shoot was so relaxed and we could just interact and chat while you captured some amazing shots of us reminiscing or retelling our most cherished memories.

These are family keepsake photos of a shared experience where we celebrated Mum and showed her how much we appreciate her as daughters. Thank you for empowering us to do it in such a loving and comfortable way, where we shared stories and reconnected.

The photos encapsulate that magical feeling. What a special gift.

Angela creates a warm and comfortable atmosphere and interacts to make the special moments feel more natural. She is extremely talented.

However, in a city full of talent photographers, Angela sets herself apart by also being an incredible human who creates warmth and connection.
