The Bruce Family: Sydney North Shore Family Photographer

Hello everyone!

I’d love to introduce the Bruce family: Peter, Linda and six-year-old Lily, who I had the pleasure of meeting last weekend at Balmoral Beach in Mosman for a family session.

The bond between these three was evident from the moment we met; there is so much love and adoration from each of them towards each other. According to Lily, their family theme song is ‘A Million Dreams’ (from The Greatest Showman – love that movie!), which I think sums them up pretty beautifully.

Linda and Lily share a lot of mother-daughter interests, including figure skating, silk yoga, playing piano and watching/reading Harry Potter (I’m a Hufflepuff by the way – Linda I wonder what you and Lily are?!). Peter also loves his sailing, squash, footy and swimming – they’re quite an active and talented family!

The Bruce family were hoping to capture Lily at six years old, as she’s growing so fast and they don’t want to forget the special moments of her in her different ages and stages. It’s also their 12th wedding anniversary this year, which is pretty momentous – congratulations Linda and Peter 🙂

Lily is bright, intelligent, curious and spirited. I loved capturing her mixture of emotions which ranged from energetic and playful, to peaceful and pensive. She loved running on the sand, splashing around in the water with her mummy and sharing hugs and kisses with dad throughout the afternoon.

I hope you enjoy browsing some of my favourite photographs from the Bruce Family session. They were such a dream to capture and brought so much love and joy to the session. Thank you Linda, Peter and Lily!
