A Day in Manly | Sydney Family Photographer

I first met this lovely family when Anouk was just days old, I was delighted when I received an email almost 2 years later telling me they had moved to the desert state of Utah, USA… I wasn’t so much delighted about the move, more about the fact they missed Sydney so much and were coming back for Christmas and wanted to organise a relaxed shoot capturing them in their favourite city. As I sat reading the email, ideas swirled in my head and as we chatted back and forth and planned the shoot I learned that Anouks current fave book was Stanly The Manly Ferry, so it was a no brainer that we had to take a trip to Manly on “Stanly”, and spend the afternoon doing exactly what they came to Sydney to do… enjoy the beach and eat ice cream haha.

Today I received an email saying the photos had made their way to them on the other side of the world and these touching words from Eveline..

“Oh my god, what can I say, Elise, you are truly an artist in what you do! It starts with the beautiful presentation of the elegant USB stick in the carefully wrapped package. But the pictures themselves – there is no words to express the joy coming back to us with your immortalized memories of the great day in Manly! Lukas and I just sat in silence watching the slideshow and soaking up the essence of what we love so much about Sydney. Thank you a million times for these amazing pictures. How am I ever going to decide which ones to print and display??  Again, Elise, thank you so much. I don’t know how you do it, but just the fact that you turn my camera-shy husband into a beaming daddy in all those photos is astonishing. You have truly been given a very special gift.  Cherish and spread it!”
