What went on behind the scenes at our latest photoshoot? Shot at the beautiful local Bells Tee Pee, featured on travel website Riparide, it is a 14ft high masterpiece, positioned at the doorstep of world class surf break Bells Beach and has spectacular ocean views. We were so fortunate to shoot inside the tee pee and the grounds. Surrounded by beautiful gardens, the teepee is ideal for kicking back and relaxing, but our munchkins had different ideas for the Summer 16 Oishi-m photo shoot.
They ran across the lawns, ambled along the pathways, spotted kangaroos, had cubby house adventures, and of course went bananas inside the tee pee. Set up to accommodate 4 adults, our kids proved there's room for everyone ;) Their energy was next level, but we bribed them with the sweetest cakes, and brought them back down to earth when WE needed it..
Special thanks to photog-extraordinaire Ed Sloane for travelling to the Tee Pee direct from the airport off the back of a 30hr transit from a remote Indonesian island from a surf photography mission! And to our ever-reliable videographer, Dave Green, thanks for capturing these memories, of an unforgettable experience.
Check out our beautiful images..
Yep, we interrupted the locals. The spectacular view overlooking Bells Beach and beyond to the Mornington Peninsula.
Ed Sloane, straight from the tropics, and Dave Green came from, ahhh, Melbourne ;) Thanks guys!

The kids are as comfortable with our photographers, as the photographers are nestled in a cloud of boho cushions! Hard day at work Dave?!
The Bells Teepee is designed to accommodate 4 adults, but the kids prove that more the merrier Squeeze on in Fiesta Dress!

Ambling along the pathways with the littlest munchkins on set.. we couldn't do these shoots without the mummies. Did you know we have 24 kids between us at Oishi-m that get called upon for photoshoots? Beachy T Shirt and Beau Legging just wants to join the bigger kids.

Thanks to one of our fave mumma's, who catered with her treats from Sunday Arvo Petite Treats (follow her on Instagram).
This is how we wrangle all the kids back from the bush - bring out the cupcakes!
Snicker T Shirt gets in on the action - no-one misses out on morning tea!
..but someone always cracks it, that's just kids being kids.
Perfectly captured moment - are you an icing licker, or a cake muncher? However you eat it, enjoy every morsel and have a very happy Summer!
