William Haddad works hard in life to be a superhero for his family. He is the father of 2 young children, who he says saved his life. He focuses on being the positive leader of his family, speaking about his family’s “real unconditional love for each other” with great warmth. He came into our Sydney studio to capture his physique after his 2nd body building show, and he felt that it would be special to capture his family as well. We feel honoured to have been able to capture their beautiful connection on camera!
William’s photoshoot featured fitness shots and photos with his family. For his fitness shots, he opted for black and white images, as he believes that “black and white photography holds the real richness of photography”. He poses shirtless in black jeans, utilizing a chair as a prop during the shoot. His physique was in peak shape, as he had been preparing for a body building contest. We asked William what his tips were for men wanting to stay fit and healthy, and we were overwhelmed with his thoughtful response. He explains, “change your mind in a positive way and you will ultimately change your life. Thoughts will become things.” He also described his simple health philosophy: “work towards a goal of serving humanity, meditate, workout, eat healthily on a regular basis, drink water and get a blood test every few months. Health will follow.” That sounds like a guide to health we can all follow!
For his family shoot it was important to William that we captured this moment in time of him and his family’s life. For these photos he and his partner posed in black underwear together and posed with their young son and daughter. When the photos of him and his family were taken, his partner had recently given birth to their second child, they were both raising their eldest child and he had been working hard to prepare for his 2nd body building contest. These photos will forever be a reminder of this time in their lives, and we think that is truly beautiful. William also loved that the photoshoot allowed his partner to feel pampered with hair styling and professional makeup after she had recently given birth. She was so very deserving of some luxurious pampering! When talking to William about his family shoot, he said, “if you have a beautiful family, capture them, capture them often”. We love that we were able to help William achieve this through his shoot.
We are truly inspired by William’s commitment to his family, his health and being the best version of himself. We loved having him and his family in our studio and adore the amazing photos from his portfolio!
