Beautiful Family Bush Session

I’m so lucky to have a job where I get to photograph beautiful families, with the most adorable children.

I also have the most incredible bush location 2 minutes down the road from my studio.

Kids love this location. Kids can be kids and explore and play.

This location also has the most amazing light come through in the afternoon.

Its certainly a favourite of mine and many clients.

It doesn't get much cuter

There is nothing cuter when babies I have photographed as newborns come back for their sitter session to update their portraits.

This little princess smiled and laughed the whole time

Maternity, glorious maternity

Can’t choose between studio or location?

I’m lucky enough to have a glorious bush location 2 minutes up the road from me.

It really is the perfect mix if you can’t decide.

Mr & Mrs Harris

What a pleasure to capture Kyle and Hayleys beautiful wedding at the Batesford Hotel, where Kyle proposed the year before.

The event was very much them, beautiful and relaxed.

Evening family session

So often as mums, we are the ones behind the camera (or phone) taking pictures of our families.

Capturing those snuggles and tickle time with Dad.

As a photographer i understand the importance of beautiful images of families. As a mum, it’s all I want for myself.

To me, the perfect image isn’t the one where we are all smiling and looking at the camera. Its the ones where the kids are smiling so hard they look like they are going to burst because mum has just given them a big kiss, or tickled them so much they can’t control their laughter.

Those are the ones with all the feelings.

This little guy was so tiny and sweet, i could have cuddled him all day.

He slept and posed like an absolute dream.

Brearley Family Mini Session

Every year I do a limited number of family sessions.

These sessions are 20 minutes of high intensity, play and fun. Everything to keep little ones engaged and happy.

Because let’s face it, they don’t often want to play the game and pose exactly how we want them to.

And why should they? They are kids, and we need to capture them being kids.

Running, playing, dancing, pull funny faces. After all, thats how we are going to capture those perfectly natural little smiles.

Here is the Brearley family, in all their playful, tickling, laughing glory.

Show me the cake

Oh I do love a cake smash.

The funny faces these funny little kids pull during their session have me smiling the whole time I edit.

I loved the colours this mum chose for her little ones session.

Oh the newborn cuteness

Twins, twins, twins

Fletcher: Cute Cute Cute

Meet Fletcher

His mum and dad drove down from Colac for his newborn session a few weeks ago.

To say he was a dream baby would be an understatement.

He slept like a dream and posed so perfectly.

And those cheeks and rolls, too cute for words.

Newborn Love

There is nothing else that I love then sending off a gallery to a client and waiting for a reply when they see their images.

Waiting to hear the excitement of families looking at their images we have created for the very first time.

To create art of their own family that will be shared for generations.

My newborn sessions aren't all about the newborn, although they are a major part.

So often, its the first time the family will be getting family portraits.  Or updating them since their last newborn shoot year earlier.

In the shortest time you children change so much, this is why I capture individual shots of all your children.

Exist in photos, for those generations to come to share.

Sweet baby Huxley

Baby Huxley came in for his newborn session and was nothing short of a dream.

Mum loved light and airy, dad loved dark and textured images. 

I had so much fun producing a gallery that both mum and dad would love looking at for years to come.

A beautiful timeless gallery of their sweet little Huxley.
