Is there anywhere more iconic to brisbane then the Botanical Gardens at the base of Mount Cootha? The bates family choose the best place to have their inner city photos taken.

Greenhouse vibes, White concrete walls and cactus walk throughs!

Also can we take a moment to appreciate a sibling set that can match in rainbow pieces while still staying timeless and effortlessly cool. Can safely say on this one that little Liz stole the show with her amazing ability to pose on cue and her loved up aggression for her little brother Will. Will is now a fully fledged walker and struts his stuff on instagram.

The love mum and dad have really shows in their looks to each other, which was in 90% of their shots. After a life changing moment in their family lives their love really perceives and its lovely to be reminded of this family unit at that point in time. It's also been so nice to read about Doms grieving process on instagram and how open she is about sharing her personal grief and the love her family shares, even before they lost a loved one.

If you grieving the loss of a loved one or wish to learn more about harm minimisation & a healthy youth culture. Check out @just.mossin on instagram or
