Two weird things happened on this shoot. The first is that my very old friend from primary school, Rela, was awake and beautified at 5 am! The second is that Keegan, who I first met when he was about 10 years old, is now taller than his dad. We met at the family home way too early, downed a quick but delicious cup of caffeine, and then headed into the family’s neighborhood to take advantage of the soft, flattering morning light and the vivid Jacaranda Trees. We took a slow walk back to their home, stopping occasionally to let the kids climb a tree for more photos, and then chatted a little over another welcome cuppa.
