Celebrating a new chapter…

I don’t know if there’s anything more gorgeous than a perfect baby belly… just over 12 months ago i was having my own maternity session, and I just love being able to do this for other new mums-to-be… During those final weeks, i was nervous, excited and pretty emotional to be honest! I remember loving my bump, loving this little person we were yet to meet. Feeling my baby kick, somersault and hiccup is something I’ll never forget. Having some gorgeous pictures to remember this time is so special. This amazing mum below was soon to meet her little girl and she is just the sweetest!

And then she was One!

Where does the time go? Last month I photographed this gorgeous little “almost” one year old and it was such a gorgeous session. She had just started walking so she was very proud to show off her new skills. And those eyes, oh my!! The deepest most beautiful sparkly blue. She is an absolute sweetheart, and although it was the coldest winter morning of the season (I think it was 3 degrees!), the sun was shining and warmed us all up. I love photographing this age. One year olds are fun, cheeky, and so full of excitement. There’s a lot going on for them! My little one has just turned one last week and it’s so beautiful watching her change and learn new things at lightning speed! 

I’ll be sharing a special little post featuring our girl soon… but in the meantime, did you know you could win a Photoshoot with me, just by signing up to my Monthly Newsletter? The shoot is worth $600 and the winner will be announced in my very first newsletter in September. You can sign up here!

Babies, babies, babies…

I meet a lot of my new clients when they are teeny tiny, and for many of these beautiful babies, I’ve been lucky enough to photograph them again and again and watch them grow. For newborn sessions, I come to you. No stress, no fuss, just calm and quiet.. unless of course bub has other ideas and wants to scream the house down. But you know what? That’s ok too. I’m in no hurry. There’s plenty of time to settle bub, time for feeds, nappy changes or whatever is needed. I’ll often shoot during these breaks too. You may notice a pattern. here! Gorgeous wrinkly baby feet and nursery detail are some of the ” must have” shots during my sessions. Here are a few images from recent shoots..

Spring Family Sessions at the Beach

In a few weeks Spring will have sprung! While it can be a windy season, it’s also a beautiful time for a beach session.
Although winter is also a great time of year for a beach session (more about that here), most families tend to book in for the warmer months. One thing to remember though, is that those warmer months come along at the same time as daylight savings. Now don’t get me wrong, I LOVE daylight savings, who doesn’t, BUT if you have little ones, a sunset shoot is usually well past their bedtime! This September is the perfect time to book a beach shoot with me, as sunset is still early enough for your little babes to enjoy some frolicking on the beach as the sun goes down… they will sleep well, that’s for sure!
The pictures below are from one of my favourite late afternoon beach sessions. Loved meeting this family, they were loads of fun, nailed the outfit choices and were relaxed and just up for a cruisy late afternoon explore on the Mornington Peninsula.

Bali – Travel Photography Part 1 – time to book another holiday…

Travel. One of the best parts of life. Quality family time. New cultures. Roughing it. Complete indulgence. Adventure. Relaxation. Whatever the reason, there’s nothing like counting down to the next trip. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to re-book pretty much as soon as I get off the plane! It’s a good way to beat the post-holiday blues!

I tend to gravitate to South East Asia and Indonesia, although I have a very long list of far away places I’d still love to visit! Below are some of my favourite images from Bali, a destination loved by Aussie travellers and somewhere I’ve been visiting for over 20 years… I’ll have more images to share from other destinations in this travel photography series over the next few weeks.

Would you like to receive travel photography tips, some of my little tricks on how to get the best out of your kids when you’re taking their photos (even if it’s with your phone), be the first to know about up-coming specials, AND go in the draw to WIN A PHOTOSHOOT VALUED AT $600!!

10 Of My Favourite Kids Shots!

Every family I meet is unique in their own way. It’s a huge part of what makes my job as a photographer so much fun. I love meeting kids of all ages, getting to know a little bit about them and letting them shine during my sessions. 

Here are 10 of my favourite kids shots (there are way more than 10 favourites but I couldn’t include them all!). I go with the flow when it comes to making sure the kids are relaxed and having a good time. Here’s what happens when we let the kids be kids…
