The Heather & Doug Records Family Shoot, Port Hills

On the edge of the world with the Rapley’s ~ Family ~ Port Hills

Meet the Rapley Family ~ Paul, Jaime, Jack and Piper… salt of the earth humans with beautiful kind hearts, a healthy sense of humour and a pure love for being in the wilderness. If they’re not fishing or jet boating, they’re up in Ngakuta stepping from their Caravan bed to the fresh air of the Marlborough Sounds.
Their kids live in the water, are fearless in all ways from flying, climbing and jumping from great heights and are just genuinely happy little souls! …

I’ve had the most fun consistently capturing the Rapley’s and their growing family over the last 2-3 years! … Jaime and I have an on going friendship of 27 years since we were wee tots at Kindergarten… it’s pretty cool now having young families along side each other and our wee guys being such good friends. (Although, Jack thinks Isaac says “No” way too much! I think you’re right Jack, can you tell him that for me?? lol”) …

These guys are so adventurous, playful and full of gorgeous sparkly positive energy and this is reflected in the happiness of their thriving kids!!

Our adventure last week on what felt like the edge of the world, was loooads of fun!! … As we were driving through the Hills… not being able to see more than a couple of metres ahead of us… my heart sank at the prospect of a completely foggy shoot (although clear as anything on the ground) at a location I’ve had my eye on! … Alas, we turned a corner, and we watched as the fog swept over the mountain like something out of the movies and had us feeling like we were the last ones left on earth!

I love love love documenting your family guys… your wee cherubs are so special and I look forward to so many more adventures that the future will bring! :)

Enjoooooy! <3
