Katrina posted of Facebook on the 4th August:

"I grew up in central Queensland, and was home schooled from year 4-7. We were too far from town to attend the local school and so mum home schooled us as well as being involved daily in School of the Air!
We only met our fellow school of the air mates once a year at the Charleville Sports day
As kids growing up on the land we would get our school work done as fast as we could and then head out to help dad with the mustering. 
Even though this was a long time ago, kids on the land are still working with their families and helping out on the family property....

This is personally one of my all time favourite shots from this photo shoot - the first baby born at Greenslopes Hospital in Brisbane.
It brings back lots of memories for me as I was in that position three times with the birth of my daughters, feeling so scared and excited.
Look at the love between Mummy and Daddy- to - be
Dad is so lovingโ€‹, caring and supportive.

Amazing Mum - Brisbane Photography

I am always amazed by big families with lots of children who can still maintain some organised chaos around their Brisbane home! This 'tribe' of kiddies have an AMAZING mum, who is clearly deeply dedicated to them and vice versa. They also have an amazing Nanny who has helped raise them over the last decade! AND we had the grandparents visit during the family photo shoot, which is always fun, and especially since we had a particularly cheeky Grandad this day. It was incredible to watch how seamless everyone was together, including Sarah's new partner, Rob, who was a little unsure about being photographed, but clicks soooooo well with the kids and had a few smooches with his gorgeous girl ...

Why choose us? Brisbane photographer travels to your home

Long car rides, the stress of navigating to an unfamiliar address, packing tote bags so they're bursting at the seam with snacks, nappies and toys, extra clothes - any family knows how exhausting travel can be. That's why we come to you. We'd much rather you to spend all that energy having fun at your shoot instead.

The benefits of having a photo shoot in the family home don't end at simple convenience. Children feel more secure in familiar surroundings. The gruffest blokes can relax and just be 'dad.' Most of all, it's intimate. There are no unfamiliar rooms, hot lights, or strange teams of people bustling around in the background.

We don't create a facade. We help people lose their ...

Katrina's Philosophy - Brisbane Photographer full circle

"When we were children, there weren't any family photos on the walls in our home," says Katrina. So one day when a travelling photographer rolled into her tiny country town, the Cochran children's Sunday bests were ironed, their hair begrudgingly brushed and each pose carefully arranged on that traditional mottled background. Unfortunately, the resulting photo was not the image of perfect porcelain angels their poor mum had envisioned (and that were so popular in those days). Thumbs were being sucked. The siblings wore the scowls of children recently reprimanded for having hunched shoulders. "But it was authentic, and looking back at that picture always makes me laugh."

It was this ideal Katrina carried through to her business. What's wrong with ...

Parents are so cool these days! These two Brisbane parents are no exception! Having won an awesome family photo shoot at the boys school festival, Cannon Hill Anglican College, donated by Katrina, Mum was already raring to go. So we did a beautiful natural make-up for Mum, then these beautiful teenage boys helped me set everything up :) Always nice to have little assistants (and by little, I really mean taller, haha!). And they were so fantastic the entire shoot. I love that everyone in the family really gave 110% , it was a full weeks work-out at the gym, but we have some pretty outstanding moments captured - awesome family portraits forever!

Say Hello to Little George Astley - 9 days old but so strong, sweetly stares into your eyes and has an amazing grip already. Alice & Barry you are such natural parents and he was an absolute gem today (and of course your little doggie Darcy!). This little photo is for Grandma - her FIRST Grandbubba wrapped up in a precious blanky she made especially for him AND she was also visiting during George's first few weeks of life, which was so special to capture. There is something about a portrait with a proud grandparent and newborn baby - encapsulates all that is so important in life :)
