Parents ask me: 

"When should I have my children photographed?"

"Now," I say. "Because another year will go by and you will look back and wish you had done it then." 

At 18 month old, your wee babe is now a terrific toddler.  And we bet that they are loads of fun, charging at life at a cracking pace or perhaps obsessed with books and cuddles and tickles.

Ah, the terrible 2’s.  Your cheeky toddler may also be challenging, but this is my favourite age. Try as you might, you just can’t reason with a two year but this is exactly why they are so much FUN.

Does your 3-4 year old ever stop talking? Mine didn’t either!  They are ...

A little story about window lighting.

This photo worked beautifully, positioning the children in front of the natural window light, exposing for their skin tones and keeping some detail in the background. I love this soft ethereal light coming from behind, it adds romance and drama to this photo. 

Black and white photography is simply so so beautiful, one of the reasons I choose black and white is because your skin looks wonderful. It hides flaws. If you have a redness in your skin it looks tanned in black and white; acne is softened and lines are softened. 

Simple Pure Classic black and white.

LOVE IT!

Nicole was so gorgeous and relaxed when I met her at her maternity photography session. She wasn't entirely sure on exactly how she wanted to capture her beautiful pregnant belly - but she knew this was an important time in her life and that she would love to look back at these moments once her little lady arrived! And as a beautiful keepsake for her baby. This beautiful Brisbane Mummy had an air of grace about her and it absolutely translates in her gorgeous photographs. She has beautifully designed her Southbank apartment and it was a glorious day with soft light beaming through her windows. She is a natural beauty and it was lovely to share these moments and see ...

As soon as I reached this families beautiful home in Victoria Point, I felt instantly relaxed, with a beautiful view of boats floating peacefully on the water across the road. Mum (Bernie) is quite inspiring with her organisational skills - with everyone dressed and ready to go  and looking FABULOUS! She had even moved her dining room table to create the perfect spot for out photographic experience with the family.

It was SUCH a fun shoot. Bernie is sweet and giggly, and Dad Richard was more than happy to have everyone lie down or jump on him, including the cat, Poppy! (Dad's are so great at following orders! hehe). Baby Will was a very chilled out little fella with his ...

There is no doubt that young Sammy stole the show at this Brisbane family photo shoot! He is an absolutely character and ball of energy. Mum & Dad were so relaxed and welcomed me into their beautiful fig tree pocket home, where I was greeted by the family dog Chopstix flopping over onto his back for me to give him a big tummy rub! Mum Leanne had some beautiful cuddles with her boy in between the crazy fun moments and I have to say my favourite moment was when Sammy decided to whip out his guitar and serenade us all (yes he made his own tunes and lyrics!). Dad Scott was in hysterics, perhaps that's where Sammy gets his musical ...

The first birthday is always such an exciting event for Mum & Dad to celebrate, and sometimes, I think the parents tend to have more fun than their Birthday Baby! Last month little Ryan turned ONE and to celebrate his very clever Mummy made him a play hot air balloon and had a talented friend make a beautiful 1st birthday cake for Ryan to smash. I think Ryan's older brother did most of the cake smashing, but it was such a fun little set-up it meant both the boys could just play together. Their beautiful Brisbane home backed onto a lovely little lake where the boys could play in the grass and "take off" in their hot air balloon - ...
