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.

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.

Happy 1st birthday Charlotte

Athena <3

I photographed Athena’s sister Piper when she was just a newborn herself.

So I was so excited when their mum Ashley messaged me to tell me she was expecting again.

Watching families grow is one of my favourite parts of the job.

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.

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.

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.

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

 

Cake Smash <3

I love cake smashes.

The colours, the smiles, the splashes, the faces they pull, and of course THE CAKE!!

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

Cake Smash Fun - Harmony

This sweet family was in town for beautiful Harmony's first birthday and stopped by to capture her cake smash and some family pictures.

This little legend was a huge fan of face planting the cake and pulling amazing faces.

 

Twins, twins, twins

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.

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 - Harvey

I photographed big brother Jude as a newborn, so I was so excited with his mum emailed me to tell me she was expecting again and would like me to photograph her families newest addition when they arrived earth side.

I then got another email from Danielle, Harvey was eager to meet everyone and was born early.

After spending some time in special care, I finally got to meet Harvey.

He was such a good boy for his session and spent most of his time asleep.
