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

Tyler, for the love of newborn squishiness

Sunset family session

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.

A stunning evening family shoot

I LOVE capturing families on the outdoors.

The kids are so comfortable, being able to run and play.

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.

Brookes Family

I photographed this beautiful family 12 months ago when i captured their little boys newborn images.

I loved catching up with them again and updated their portraits with some fun and timeless images.

Oh my sitter cuteness

Happy birthday Will

I photographed Will for his newborn shoot a little over 12 months ago.

He came back with his family to update his portraits for celebrate this milestone.

Making Memories - Mother & Daughter Love

So often as mums we are the ones behind the camera.  Calling for our kids to look and smile at us while we hold a phone or camera in front of our faces trying to capture that perfect shot.

When do we as mothers ever take the time to get beautiful portraits with our children?  

It is a gift to them, a gift to be passed down generations.

These are their memories, your children's memories.

"the bond between a mother and daughter is so precious, time goes by so quickly.  When you capture moments like this, it's so special.  Every love story is beautiful, but ours is my favourite" Stacey, beautiful mother to Stella

 

We are family

I adored capturing this amazing family.

We split the session in half and did half studio and half location.

This family laughed the whole time.  So much love

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.

Sweet Newborn - Spencer

Spencers mum and dad travelled from Colac to get her newborn shots taken.

They were so smitten with their brand new baby girl.

The whole time I was taking her shots, all I could hear behind me was them going gaa gaa over her.

Beautiful newborn - Nate

Little Nate was a dream to photograph.  He slept the entire session without making a noise.

I love being about to present parent such beautiful images that can be treasured by the entire family for years to come.

In home newborn lifestyle session - Hicks Family

Bringing home a new baby can be daunting. 

There is so many unknowns.  How will your family adjust expanding by one?  How will your toddler adjust?  Will anyone be getting any sleep?

It can be difficult to leave the house for even the smallest amount of time.

That's why in home family lifestyle sessions are a great option. Especially if there is a young sibling to also think about. 

These sessions are all about being relaxed in the comfort of your own home.

With winter starting early this year, its a great time to move family sessions inside with the heater on

Beach Maternity Session

Milita has only been in Australia for a short amount of time. 

She wanted to celebrate her pregnancy whole also show casing this beautiful state to her family back home.

I loved every bit of photographing this session.  Milita was so confident and beautiful in front of the camera. She absolutely glowed in this stunning environment.
