The Macague Family Session

Kununurra is home to the most epic sunsets, and when Maree got in contact with me to book an extended family photography session I knew just the right place to take her family. Thegoowiyeng (Kelly's Knob Lookout) is arguably the easiest place to watch a sunset in town, with the last light of the day providing us with the most gorgeous glow.


In March 2021, Maree and her husband Paul undertook a huge life change. They sold their beautiful home, and since their 3 adult children have left the nest and live all across the country, they now travel around Australia full-time in their caravan. As Paul is a handyman/mechanic, and Maree has her own swimming lesson and aerobics business, they certainly keep themselves busy. Each year they spend a few months living in Kununurra where their son (the baby of the family before Millie came along) is based.

It's rare that the whole family are all together in one location, and this time was made more special by the fact that Maree & Paul's first grandchild Millie was here!

Maree's family asked for some tips regarding outfits and what would suit for photos. In general I suggest comfortable clothing and natural earthy colours, but at the end of the day I just want people to look and feel themselves. You can see here that the family all having a complimenting colour palette makes a huge difference to the overall feel of the image. The warm earthy colours looked lovely on their skin tones and there were no distractions with any logos or hectic patterns - which allows their connections and personalities shine through in the photograph.


It was an absolute delight spending this time with the Macague family and I look forward to watching more of Maree and Paul's adventures.
