Twin photography and the power of social media

These angels were 10 days old when Rachel got invited to photograph them at their home. Twins are absolutely adorable to take photos of and we always jump at the chance when the opportunities come our way. It can be a little challenging to persuade both siblings to do what you'd like them to do at the same time, but the results are usually breath-taking.  The science between twins might be a bit tricky to wrap your head around, but when you see them next to each other, everything seems to make sense. And it is that natural beauty that draws attention to twin photography. This is easily identified by the response that a simple Facebook post captures. In the ...

We have been photographing this gorgeous Brisbane family for over 10 years now and what a pleasure to photograph their gorgeous children during their teenage years. Their family photographs from the years before are beautifully displayed in their entry way, greeting you as you walk into their Clayfield home. It just reinforced how important it is to capture your family as you grow as a unit and individuals! The kids are all tall and gorgeous with good manners to boot, so it was a pleasure to capture them, especially playing with their adorable puppy dog! Grandma also popped around to jump in a few photos with her grandkids (How GORGEOUS is Grandma, by the way!). Just love her and her ...

This beautiful little soul is very special. Mum and Dad have awaited her arrival for many years and you can see they just adore her - she fits perfectly in their arms. It was very special to photograph this family in their forever home they have just recently built, and their little fur babies popped out to say hello during the photo shoot. Little Charlotte was an absolute dream, sleeping pretty much the entire photo shoot. I think she is going to be a Daddy's girl! Watching John brush her hair with her baby brush while she sat in dads lap during a little break was a simple yet special moment. These two will be amazing parents xox

Newborn Photography - Awwwww! Can we ever get enough of photographing newborns?  No!  This is a true passion of Katrina Christ Photographer. We just LOVE newborn babies and the portraits we can create for you and them. 0-4 weeks is the best time to truly capture their unique newness, before it quickly disappears. (You would be amazed at the changes you will see in your baby from week to week!) Dimply bums, delicious little ears, delicate fingers, gorgeous cuddles, little toes clenched, fingers curling around dads hand, breastfeeding if you like, and hilariously awkward cuddles with big brothers and sisters; these are the tender moments we will freeze in time for you. Katrina Christ Photographer is all about one thing; Family. ...

You know it is going to be an awesome photographic session when Mum comes downstairs with a glass of wine in hand and her adult sons already have the family jokes flowing! This was a pretty special afternoon though as Sue was farewelling her eldest son Alex who has now moved overseas to travel and study. These boys are not only clever, but have also have kind natures that will see them go far in life! Alex & Nick - It was an absolute treat to capture how much you both love your Mum! I could see her pride and admiration for you both beaming through her smile. Alex, best of luck in Copenhagen with your studies and Nick best ...

Meet SUPER MUM Kerry! She has recently welcomed her fifth son, Joseph, into the world and he is just divine. I could see the proud sparkle in Kerry's eye when she spoke of her five sons. Instantly, you are drawn to Joseph's beautiful eyes and those amazing eyelashes. He had SO many smiles during the photo shoot and even had some fun hanging out in his family home with his puppy Max, who managed to get a sneaky kiss in on Joseph's cheek! I loved the intimacy of this photographic session with just Mum & her baby spending some gorgeous cuddly time together, so many natural beautiful moments followed. Congratulations on your lovely boys Kerry. xox

Now is the time to photograph your family

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!
