I've followed Suzy's blog In the Lyons Den for a little while now and her story resonated with me. Suzy writes about parenting and the challenges of raising children in such a realistic way. I was drawn to her posts about craving change, finding the good in life and building resilience in children. I love the way Suzy craved adventure and somewhere slower for her family and her openness in sharing their journey. So when they packed up their lower north shore life for greener pastures in Arcadia...
I spent a beautiful sunday morning in Arcadia with Bec, Stew and Harper recently. I first spoke to Bec about 6 months or so ago and we discussed a family photography session just after Harper's first birthday. A simple easy morning at home, just capturing life as it is right now. Creating a little time capsule of this precious age in their lives. We played at home for a little while, took a walk through their amazingly gorgeous back yard with the dogs. We searched for horses but alas they were...
I've recently introduced milestone sessions. These short but sweet 30 minute sessions are available to clients who have held a full priced session within the last 12 months. Designed as an update to your annual photos, to capture progress of your newborn, or to document a life event - a new dog, moving home, a special event - or just because time moves fast. This little session was to capture baby Elliot just before his 3 month milestone. You might remember my recent fresh 48 session - that was...
Nothing makes me happier than in-home sessions which are all about capturing your every day routines. Nicola & Steve contacted me earlier in the year to plan an in-home family photography session purely to preserve their now. They wanted to take the time to document the details. We planned a weekday afternoon session hanging out at home, taking a walk to one of their favourite spots on the Northern Beaches to visit the ducks and walk amongst the trees that they love. Then we headed back...
I first met Samantha & Stewart earlier this year for a newborn photography session when they welcomed baby Johnny, little brother to gorgeous Georgie. We met up again on the weekend for a milestone session - a short and sweet session designed to update your family photographs throughout the year or to capture a certain event. This session was a 6 month milestone session but really I love I love these photographs for the feeling of them. They are really intended as a keepsake of this time in...
I love newborn photography sessions and it's oh so special when I'm asked to photograph a newborn in the hospital. Or as they call them in the business - fresh 48 sessions. All that newness, all that weariness, all the excited first visits and alllllllll the love. It was such a pleasure to be invited to meet baby Elliott recently. I was very lucky to watch his big brother, Noah, getting to know him. You can never be sure how those first meetings will go when a new baby arrives, but it was so...
One of my favourite things about doing lifestyle photography is seeing families grow over time. I first met Aasa & Steve late last year when Aasa was expecting their second baby. We did a maternity photography session with their beautiful daughter, Clementine and then in February when beautiful baby boy Selby arrived we did a newborn photography session. Now that Selby has just passed his 6 month milestone we headed down to Coogee beach on a gorgeous spring Sunday afternoon and took some...
A lot of people shy away from winter family photography sessions but with mornings like this I'm not sure why you would. A beautiful and super sunny day at Macmasters Beach on the Central Coast of Sydney with the Gorvin family. We spent some time walking along the gorgeous tessellated rocks, collecting shells from rock pools and chatting as we soaked up the winter sun. I've known Heather since my high school days so to be asked to do photos for such a good friend was truly special. Heather's...
It felt a little bit special to be tucked up inside on the last day of autumn in this beautiful home to photograph 9 week old newborn twin boys. It was such a lovely and relaxed afternoon spent bathing and feeding the boys and then some cuddles on the couch and on the bed and getting them ready for a nap. Perfect and content with quite possibly the most relaxed first time parents I’ve ever seen. It was just the loveliest afternoon. Also at the newborn photography shoot were their 2 handsome...
I was so happy to be invited to an 8am session to capture life as it is right now for this family. They were about to move home and thought they would take some time to create a keepsake including some breastfeeding images before this phase ended. A perfect session simply to put a freeze frame on the now. I know these photos will be treasured.
