We love our early morning photo shoots here at the East Brisbane Studio - it's the best way to start the day and we find pretty much everybody tends to be a "better self" in the morning (maybe sometimes after a coffee or two!). On this morning I was lucky enough to capture some really special candid moments and forever portraits with a lovely Mum & daughter who have been visiting us for family photos since Hannah (who is now ten years old!). This was their 5th photo shoot! So it has been amazing to see the changes in Hannah as she has grown up and her gorgeous Mum who is still looking as amazing as the first day we ...

We love an energetic photo shoot here at our East Brisbane studio with parents, kids and PETS too! These hilarious kids were dancing, jumping, cat cuddling and it all lead to some pretty cool moments captured. There was non-stop laughing in the studio (mainly from the photographer, haha!) and it was so lovely to see familiar faces back in studio! A favourite moment in a lot of my shoots is when our loved up couple get a few photos celebrating their relationship. Once we have kids, so much of our life is focused around them, so it's nice for parents to be young again and have some fun themselves!

What a beautiful family get together with parents, kids and their gorgeous grandparents - you can see so much love between everyone at this family photo shoot! John's daughter thoughtfully gifted him a photography certificate for his 70th birthday to capture some sweet memories. We captured lots of different combinations to really tell the story of their family and I particularly love the kids with their Grandparents and the beautiful photo of birthday boy John and his wife/soul mate!

Gorgeous Corporate shoot with professional hair & make-up

I photographed this stunning business woman in Sydney with various different "looks" to give her the variety to choose the best professional representation of her, depending on the content she required her corporate photo for. She created a range of different looks by having her hair and make-up professionally done and changed throughout the shoot, as well as outfit changes! I love to mix up my family photo shoots with creative corporate photography also as your business headshots can be amazing and creative as well!

We have been lucky enough to photograph this lovely Brisbane family before, and this photo shoot was with their newest addition, a gorgeous younger sister to their two handsome boys! Though she is definitely at an independent age now - playing the boss card at her photoshoot with the boys and making me work for her smile :) (did I mention we love a challenge!). The kiddies still had lots of giggles with their Grandma's though and such an awesome memory to capture them with the matriarch of each side of the family!

This little newborn bubby is so adorable and has the biggest eyes and is very loved by his parents - you can see it in their eyes! We love photographing beautiful skin on skin cuddles with newborns - they settle so easily when they are so close to Mum & Dad. These two are natural parents and had to have a giggle when poor dad ended up being wee'd and poo'd on! It's always bound to happen once the nappy comes off! What a lovely little story this family have created with the photograph selection and I am sure they will love showing their little baby once he's older :)

This was such a fuuuunnn photo shoot! So great to see this lovely Brisbane family returning to the photography studio to update their family photos with their 3rd and final addition to the family, Lilly.

And these guy chose a really great selection of photos that truly reflected both the loving moments and the really fun times between everyone!

As soon as these brother walked through our studio doors they were chatting away and so excited to meet new people, so we kind of knew they'd be awesome at performing for the camera! And my goodness are there some really gorgeous and hilarious photos of these two. We also had their Granny at the studio, so she got to capture some special moments with her grandkids. Of course we also got the magic family shot - how much do you love the way he is holding his Mum's face in their family photo :)

Look at this gorgeous newborn baby's big eyes. We absolutely love it when we can capture those beautiful sleepy photographs, but also when they open those eyes for the first time and stare at you into the camera! How magic! Photographing them in those first 4 weeks is such a special time, especially when both Mum & Dad are there for that precious family photo and you can see so much love and hope in their eyes as this experience of spending time with their first newborn baby unfolds. We really do have the most amazing job in the world!

Who doesn't love the challenge of photographing three gorgeous little siblings under 3 years old ?! (including a newborn, hehe). It's often unpredictable, but this is often when you get those magic moments and lovely interactions between brothers and sisters :) It's really fun to be able to also capture each child on their own, during a time when they are beginning to develop their own little personalities. What a pleasure it was to capture this adorable Brisbane family and we hope to see you all again soon....maybe when a special little brother turns 1!

We absolutely love photographing our beautiful Brisbane families, especially the big ones! But there are those precious photo shoots where you get to see that interaction between 2 people. And there is nothing like a Mother's love for her beautiful baby. I had the pleasure of seeing these two beauties get all dressed up for a classic and feminine photo shoot between Mum & daughter. It was also lovely to show Mum these amazing photo's and how gorgeous she looked - what a stunner! And little Primrose was the cutest little entertainer! It really is such a memorable age to have photos taken, when their little personalities are beginning to shine :)

This lovely Brisbane family first visited us when they had welcomes their first little boy into their lives. From a teeny tiny bub into the most gorgeous toddler, we had so much fun with them again and loved the moments between Spencer and his new baby brother! It is one of the best things to witness sibling interaction (the good and the bad....poor Spencer got wee'd on and wasn't too impressed, hehehe!). Mum & Dad are two of the calmest people and having has a photo shoot with us before, they were absolute naturals. They also had some beautiful skin on skin shots with their gorgeous newborn baby at the Brisbane studio - they turned out beautiful! We have been ...

Well I think the images speak for themselves in this instance, when we say it's so important to include your pets in your photo shoot too! How gorgeous is this little lady and her big dog! Absolute little buddies and both so expressive for their photos. We love that Mum & Dad also jumped in for some gorgeous family portraits. Such a super fun photo shoot at the East Brisbane studio with this gorgeous family. We hope you had a wonderful time too!

Newborn photo shoots never get old!

We are definitely in awe of our newborn babies that come to visit us at the studio ... EVERY TIME! They are just so precious and sweet and when it's a couples FIRST born, it's so special to see the magic in their eyes as they are learning and experiencing this new life they have created. Your baby just knows you, your scent, your heartbeat, your voice and they tend to instantly calm when cuddles close. We absolutely love these cuddly close moments we capture with parents, but have to admit we also love those random moments that you don't expect - newborns are truly wondrous like that!

Look at this big beautiful family! We have been lucky enough to photograph them before when the kiddies were just a bit smaller! They have definitely grown since then and we got to meet the extended family as well at this most recent photo shoot. We always love involving the grandparents as they are the all important leaders who have created your beautiful family and have so much love to give - especially to their grandkids! ;) It was so fun seeing the Brisbane families interacting and enjoying this precious time together creating some truly memorable portraits!

As soon as gorgeous Arya walked into the East Brisbane studio, I could tell she was a little lady full of character! She was super happy interacting with me from the get-go and was amazing at communicating, given she is only 2 years old! She loved to try and copy everything we said, hehehe! She seemed to love having the stage to herself to perform for the camera and she has the perfect photographic face! Loved that in a brief moment of stillness, the gorgeous capture of those amazingly long lashes (which we normally see on boys!). Her Mum & Dad created the most beautiful story piece with a range of images reflecting her inquisitive and happy personality at this ...

It's so fun watching our lovely families we capturing adding to their brood! There is something so sweet about two siblings cooing over their newborn baby brother or sister. It's a lot of different personalities interacting, so you never know what surprises might happen! Mother hen big sister was very cuddly with her new little brother, the second boy for the family! I think older brother Tom, just wanted his baby brother to be grown up already so they can play outside and run around ;) Thank you again for inviting us back to capture your growing tribe and share these special memories with us!

We love this Brisbane family and have been lucky enough to photograph them on several occasions! This was by far the most fun shoot with these guys as all but one of the kids were able to be at  Stradbroke Island to be photographed together! With such a tribe we were able to create the most gorgeous mix of special moments including some pretty gorgeous couple shots! Mum & Dad's don't always think to have photos together, but it is really special to focus a little bit of time on your relationship too (and have a sweet little embrace). My favourite moments created would have to be the kids jumping over Mum & Dad in the water - a true ...

A trip to the beach is a time the entire family looks forward to, a time to relax together! But it is also SO exciting when you can bring the family dog along, for both you and the dog! They love running along the endless beach, splashing in the water and will often bring out the best in you and your most fun side! We had the perfect sunny weather on stradbroke island - it was such a good occasion for everyone to let loose and enjoy splashing around! We created some gorgeous summer time fun memories with this beautiful Brisbane Mum and her kids! Can't wait to get back to the beach again next summer :)
