One of my favourite things about running a photography business is the opportunity to reconnect with clients at different milestones during their lives. That is one of the best things about being flexible with our approach to photography. I know from a marketing perspective it is better to target your market and be an expert in just one form of photography but I feel that it would be a detriment to my growth as an artist. I much prefer to celebrate the fact that Knight Photography is a ‘Lifestyle Photography’ business and clients connect because they like the way we approach all sessions and bring a bit of creativity to any occasion.
Knight Photography first came in contact with the Ducker family when we were just starting out and captured them at New Farm Park as they were expecting their second child. It was such a natural and candid session and was one of my first realisations that this is the way I want to the sessions to run.
We then went on to capture an extended family session and one of our first every newborn session. It is really interesting to look back through the photos now and see how my style has changed and how I have grown as a photographer. Even though there has been some increase in how I can handle my camera the photos still have a great natural feel and is a testament to the love that the family has for each other.
The last session that we had was at the Botanical Gardens in the city. It was so easy to shoot as they knew exactly how I worked and we didn’t have to set anything up. It was all about the family catching up together and I just floated around like a fly on the wall and captured the memories.
Let me know what you think of extended family photos and you favourite reason to get professional photography.

O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat Wedding
I was lucky enough to experience my first Zimbabwean wedding last weekend. You could tell that a lot of work went into the preparation and it was all focussed on one thing ‘dance’. I started to get a feeling that this was going to be the case very early with the boys listening to bangers all morning and dancing around…
It was well worth getting up early on Saturday to catch the morning light for Renee and Gabby. The Pine Forest in Miami allowed soft light to go streaming through the trees and onto two of the most amazing lovebirds you could ever see. Renee and Gabby are two people very much in love. I didn’t say one word that related…
I sometimes question my decision to be a wedding photographer. The world we live in can sometimes feel like one big show with everyone desperate to outdo each other’s perfect Instagrammable lives. But then you get two people so in love that you can’t help but get excited about shooting moments that are 100% about each other. Arie and Emily…
