the accidental autumn {williamstown extended family photography)

Just a little heads up… I’m about to talk about the weather.

“When is the best time to book an autumn session?” is a question that makes me nervous. It’s trickier than it sounds, and the answer is not “autumn”.

Firstly it’s Melbourne, our seasons are suggestions.  Kind of like a movie that is based on the book and takes creative licence… summer is based on summer but may contain elements of spring and winter. May contain traces of nuts. Etc.

Secondly… it’s a fine line. Too early and the leaves haven’t even changed yet. A little later but still too early and the leaves have changed but not yet fallen, and how will the kids frolic? Wait too long after the leaves have fallen and they get wet, mushy, a bit composty.

Happily, this family didn’t ask that question. They just wanted their extended family photographed somewhere in or near their local area, on a nice day. Any time, not fussy.

What a bonus for them when we gathered in Williamstown – in the middle of winter – to discover the leaves still carpeting the ground, crunchy as coco pops without the chocolate, begging to be frolicked among.

Happy days!
