Amelia | Cairns Portrait Photography
The best supermodels in the world grew up as tomboys: Gisele Bundchen, Miranda Kerr, Bar Refaeli…
They are gorgeous without trying, feminine in that understated I’m-comfortable-in-my-own-skin-and-anyway I’m-too-busy-having-fun-to-care way.
Amelia is that tomboy/supermodel girl next door. You’ll find her racing down the street in her scooter or throwing kids into the swimming pool and diving after them most afternoons. But she’s wise beyond her age and has that je ne said quoi factor, which makes her fascinating to photograph. If it wasn’t for the missing front tooth you wouldn’t know she was only 7 years old.
Our idea for the photoshoot was “climb the trees in your favourite dress” and we only had half an hour to capture all of these shots. We went down to the beach where there was an old gum tree we both loved.
And the rest was just magic. The combination of the golden sunlight, the creative energy and the fun we had in those fleeting minutes chasing the setting sun made for the most perfect shoot to date.
