We are VERY proud and excited to announce that Rugby League Legend Brad Fittler and his wife Marie have agreed to become Ambassadors for ‘Our Family’ – our limited edition book project raising funds for Sydney Children’s Hospital. (For more info on ‘Our Family’ click here.)
We photographed Brad & Marie and their two children Demi & Zach late last year, simply because they wanted some professional portraits of their family. After having a great time on the shoot, we asked if they’d help us promote the ‘Our Family’ project, and graciously they agreed!
On the shoot, Demi & Zach went crazy running around their backyard, riding scooters, kicking a footy, and wrestling me while I tried desperately to capture some beautiful portraits of them.
I realised very quickly that they had energy to spare (I wonder where they get that from? Dad?) and were only going to co-operate if I got playful with them and had as much fun as possible!
Fortunately I was able to capture some very appropriate portraits of them playing with Brad & Marie, as you can see here!
Honestly, I needed a stiff drink and a lie down after this portrait shoot… I have the utmost respect for Marie and Brad for keeping the kids under control most of the time! (Although I do wonder… is Brad a father figure or just a big energetic kid most of the time himself?)
Our warmest thanks go to Marie & Brad for their support on this project, and we look forward to showcasing more of Sydney’s beautiful families through the ‘Our Family’ book!
