University of Queensland Great Court family portraits: Jen and Rob’s family

Life sometimes has a lovely way of coming full circle.

Over eight years ago, I photographed the wedding of a young couple called Kate and Brad. It was a wonderful wedding (actually one of my favourites) and I remembered how close Kate was to her family. As with most weddings, I thought it would be nice if our paths crossed again one day.

So it was with great excitement when I received an email from Kate’s mum Jen. She and her husband Rob were keen to get some family photographs of their whole family, including¬† Kate and Brad and their three children, Adelaide, Matilda and Henry; and Kate’s sisters Jessie and Lucy.¬† It was terrific to catch up with everyone at the University of Queensland’s Great Court for some portaits and meet the children! Happily, the sun shone, and it was a great session!
