Kelle and Dustyn came to see me last week with their gorgeous little twin boys, Bidharli and Dajarra. Their names have special meanings for Dustyn, who is an indigenous Australian; Bidharli meaning Coast/Coastal and Dajarra meaning Desert/Town in Far North Queensland.
It’s not very often that I get to photograph newborn twins, so I was very excited when Kelle contacted me. We did a collection of images of the family together, and then waited for the boys to drift off to sleep. We managed to try a few different shots of the boys, with my favourite being the one of the twins resting on Dustyn’s chest with the Aboriginal blanket that was made by the girls at Victorian Aboriginal Health Service in the background.
I love the warmth and adoration shown in the images of Kelle and Dustyn with the boys, it really sums up the love they have for them.
