Beaumaris Family adventure, wind & rainbows

The winter light in Melbourne blows me away, I love being a family photographer here!  This family adventure was in Beaumaris one Saturday afternoon.  It had been a cold, windy and wet day, these guys didn’t care they wanted to get out and have some fun and weren’t fussed if they got wet, We had…
