A sneaky peek behind the lens of our Hi Summer by the Sea photoshoot at Point Roadknight, on Victoria's Greeat Ocean Road...
When you stumble across a turquoise wall this good, that imbues beachside holiday vibes, you know it's going to be a great backdrop for our garments. Here, the Teahouse Pinafore Dress shines in front of this electrifyingly fabulous boatshed.
Some jobs are done on the run! Like a quick haircut on the bonnet of mum's car to trim the fringe on a breezy day...
... you gotta be quick to keep up with the runaway munchkins! As soon as we arrive, the kids are changed into their outfits and it's GAME ON!
Up close and personal with the photographer, showing off the 'fishies' on his T Shirt. His excitement was palpable and he loved the underwater bubbles too.
On the starting line, ready to race! Sometimes we give the kids some subtle direction to get them to do what we want!, resulting in campaign photos that shine.
Like layers of light, crispy filo pastry, these cliffs are fabulous.
Always with a parent close by to help get up and down on the rocks.
It's not always sunshine and rainbows, and there's often tears and a bit of drama throughout the shoot (nothing that the promise of a lollipop won't fix!).
Treasures are always found and it makes for a great way to get a child into deep concentration, forgetting about the cameras.
Behind the scenes there's always a talented team including a videographer and photographer who capture the sweetest moments of the kids on location. Often they work in the background and the kids don't notice the crew, leaving them to play and be completely swept up in their own worlds.
There's always abundant beauty in our photoshoot locations; so when things get a bit frantic 'on set', one can always turn around and drink in the beauty at stage left. In this case, the lure of perfect peeling waves made us mama's want to grab our longboards and hit the water! Maybe next time we'll pack our wetsuits ;)
And that's a wrap! Thanks to our fabulous kids and energetic mama's who take everything in their stride and always see the brightest part of life (even though sandy feet and sticky clay made its way into all of our cars and car seats)!
Thanks for coming Behind The Scenes to see more of our shoot, we hope you enjoy seeing our 'out-takes' and what it takes to get the shots.
