I recently had the opportunity to photograph something a little different for me, family portraits – with the eldest beautifully dressed, ready for her Year 12 Formal. It was a perfect afternoon for all the students of Picton High School, who had gathered at Picton Botanic Gardens. The sun was shining with a light breeze and the flowers were blooming in the gardens. A beautiful backdrop to have their photos taken by, before travelling in style to their evenings events at Panorama House, Bulli, NSW.
Lucinda looked stunning! She was wearing a gorgeous pink/apricot/salmon coloured gown (can you tell I’m not a fashion writer!), with intricate lace detail across the bodice, and a flowing tulle skirt. We met at her place, not far from the park, for some sibling shots, then enjoyed the afternoon weather as we strolled the pathway for photos with her whole family. The park was bustling with students, parents, teachers, siblings, friends and drivers of posh vehicles, all catching a glimpse and snapping a posed photo, selfie, or even flying a remote drone to capture the stunning outfits on display. Suits and dresses of all colours and designs! Long, short, hats, head wear, it was all there 🙂
After photos with parents, and numerous friends, the graduating students managed to gather together for a group shot, before making their way to the awaiting vehicles. Cadillac’s, Limo’s, even a huge truck, to carry them to their destination. Lucinda and her friends rode in an impressive looking, stretch Hummer. I can only imagine the fun that was had by all!
