In the month of May was National Family Portrait Month. We were apart of a great initiative where we were raising funds for the Breast Cancer Foundation, families could participate in this by donating a small fee which would go to the breast cancer foundation and in return receive a family portrait shoot.
There was a lot of interest in this and over the coming months there will be more blog posts of families that have/are participating. This blog is about the El-Shamaa family who i had the pleasure of photographing and also participated in this great initiative. Our location for the shoot was in Urangan near the iconic Urangan Pier. Mariam and Emile are originally from USA so wanted to capture a little bit of the beauty of Hervey Bay. Mariam and Emile have two children, so the Urangan beach made for the perfect location for our shoot and for the kids to let off some energy. I had a great time meeting with and photographing this great family, here are a few images from their family photoshoot.
