So, in my quest to catch up on old sessions, I stumbled across these portraits of the Withers family.
I have photographed these guys about 40,000 times now, but rarely do I shoot their family in its entirety. This was a bit of a slashy sessions – half commercial, half family – as Kristy needed family shots for various media publications. Kristy is the woman behind Incy Interiors - the most amazing range of designer kids furniture (and their ‘Eden’ bed is named after my little Eden). And, if you’re a Bathurst local, and think Incy is just a store in town – you’d be mistaken. Incy actually designs and manufactures the furniture, and has hundreds of stockists/retailers all around Australia and NZ. Their furniture is constantly featured in home & kids magazines and blogs, and they have generated more interest and business in a few short years than some businesses manage to do in an entire lifetime.
I’ve been photographing Incy Interiors since the beginning, and although I’ve neglected to share any shots on my blog so far, there are THOUSANDS I tell you! TENS OF THOUSANDS of these bad boys sitting on my HDD. Incy has been a big part of my life for the last 3-4 years – from their humble beginnings where I would travel to Sydney and Melbourne for shoots, and then when they decided to base themselves out of Bathurst (Kristy grew up on a farm in the area). And now they have opened a store in Chatswood, and will just be operating their offices from Bathurst (as opposed to running a store here).
Now, if there’s one thing I have to say about this girl (there’s so much to be honest)… but I’ve never met anyone who works as hard. She is on it 24/7. But it certainly doesn’t mean she’s lacking in the ‘mum’ area, as she does an incredible job with her kiddies. She’s stylish. She’s hilarious. She’s SO easy going… like seriously.. SO easygoing… She’s smart. She’s friendly. She’s super positive all the time. Her house is always spotless (and looks like it’s out of a magazine). She’s generous and kind, and working with her has been one of the easiest things I’ve ever done! All the Incy Bathurst crew – you guys are bloody super. Jen x
