Isabella, Tess and Toby

Being the child of a photographer is hard work. Before this shoot I was a little apprehensive that these three kids, who belong to acclaimed Wellington portrait photographer Jo Frances, might be well and truly sick of having a lens pointed at them all the time. Ten-year-old Tess (in the floral dress), assured me with a big sigh: "Yes, it does get tedious." Thank you Isabella, Tess and Toby for rising to the occasion for this shoot. You were amazing at taking direction (that shouldn't surprise me really, should it?) and I had lots of fun. Thanks also to Jo, who turned up with huge armfuls of different outfits and was full of great ideas and child-wrangling skills. Which also shouldn't surprise me. :)
