Keenan Family

Meet the Keenan Family. Andrew, Fiona and 18 month old Lilly.

In the weekend we met at The Botanic Gardens in Christchurch. The weather brought the aces.

I think it’s quite funny I did this shoot just before I attended a workshop with Karyn Flett in Dunedin on Monday. Specializing in children photography, Karyn mentioned the different age groups and the stages with each. The 12-18 month age bracket… ‘The Runners’. They don’t want to know you, they have their own agenda and they run like hell.
Yip, I think I was sweating profusely by the end of this shoot. I had to be quick!

With Lilly’s big blue eyes, golden curls and cheeky little smile. Running or not, you can’t help but go ‘Awwwwww’.

She sported some cuuute as sunnies that reminded me a bit of Minnie Mouse… perhaps the hearts?

Lilly may not have been interested in me, but she sure loved cuddling her baby cousin Ruby.

Cousins = Lilly sitting still. Not to mention that smile that burst from within.

And Ruby’s older sister Hayley joined in for a few too. Hayley and Lilly seem like best friends. She was only in to give over the hat, then she was off again.
