Country Kids in the City

Country Kids in the City – The Locke family had been in town for Mount Isa School of the Air’s Home Tutor Week. Home Tutor Week is an annual event where parents and governesses participate in workshops based around behaviour management, lesson ideas and the curriculum, all while students have hands on lessons with their classmates and teachers. Then to finish the week the students participate in their annual sports day.

Each Home Tutor Week I take the Mount Isa School of the Air’s student and staff photos so I have had the pleasure of watching many of the kids grow over the years including Emma and Matt. But I had never photographed their whole family and it was a true pleasure.

The Locke family had travelled from their station near Cloncurry and participated whole heartedly in Home Tutor Week, and the children were bordering on exhaustion. But all three children were champions and smiled away. And when the littlest Locke, Jessica or Jess as they lovingly call her, had had enough Big Brother Matt came to the rescue letting her throw flowers on him.

What a pleasure to photograph such a lovely country family. Tara and Dan’s love for their children truly reflect in their photos with both of them beaming with pride, and their children were charming and so very well mannered. And to top it off they completely nailed the outfit choices, beautifully styled in pastels and muted colours.

I’m truly looking forward to photographing them again, the same time next year,
