We photographed this Brisbane family when the first little girl was born and we were lucky enough to visit them again to capture Mum's second pregnancy! And oh my goodness, how beautiful is a photo shoot when you have a toddler and beautiful pregnant belly! Plus this little lady's curls were just stunning. You can tell from her relationship with her parents that she will be the best big sister! Wishing you all the best with your lovely little family unit of four!

What better way to celebrate summer AND the school holidays than with an awesome beach photo shoot on Stradbroke Island! It's so gorgeous to capture our Brisbane families in a different location and somewhere they can let their hair down! We created a lovely mix of sitting family portraits as well as running and playing on the beach! In the end, this fab family chose an awesome 16 series frame that captured the essence of their day at the beach! I can't wait to go back again next summer :)

This lovely Brisbane family had their photo shoot first up in the morning to update their family photos and portraits of the boys who are growing up so quickly! They were so hilarious and mischievous at their photo shoot, just enjoying have fun and lots of laughs! We love the photo of the boys going for the big tickle of each other - so candid! They were so much fun to photograph and it's always such a pleasure seeing our families come back in to the studio again!

Look at this precious little angel, such kissable little cheeks and very loved by her Mum & Dad. Rosa definitely loved her cuddles during our photo shoot at our East Brisbane studio - luckily we all love to cuddle babies ;) This first time mama was a complete natural with bubs and was so great at settling her. We captured some amazing photo's of Rosa with her parents and lots of cute individual photos including gorgeous baby details like her little toes! So precious when they grow so quickly!

Nothing better than a photo shoot with a toddler and newborn baby! How cute are these two siblings together... little Kaitlin was very curious of her new baby sister Hannah, but also a very independent little lady! We photographed both girls at only 12 days old, teeny tiny! It was so lovely to see Kaitlin growing up and also getting to meet their new little addition. It always a bit of a treat for us to catch up with Mum and Dad to, hear how they are going, how the journey with TWO kids is different and to chat about their experiences with parenting!

The 6-9 month range is such a super cute age to photograph! So interactive and happy to be entertained as they are learning so much! Look at the cute chubby little rolls as well, gorgeous as they love to grab and eat themselves, hehehe! You can tell this little lady just adores kisses from her mummy and daddy as well! With the biggest smile on her face, it was hard not to just want to give her big cuddles at her family photo shoot! That first year of life is so momentous for the amazing growth your baby will go through (and you as parents!) from skinny little newborns with that extra skin that starts to fill in at 3-6 ...

Isn't skin on skin the most beautiful and natural experience?! You have that moment when your baby is first born and how gorgeous is it having them lie on your chest, you feel each other breathe and your hearts are beating against one another. These are truly precious moments, but they can continue on after that amazing moment of their birth. I love capturing these moments for you to then show your gorgeous baby, or BABIES (TWINS) in the case of this gorgeous Brisbane family! Yes...sometimes you do risk being sprayed with lots of wees and poos...but it's so worth it! I just love all of the hair on these adorable twin boys too :)

Amazing Mum alert right here - look at her beautiful four kiddies! I love it when we have big families into the photography studio and all of the siblings just get in and LOVE each other! The spread in ages is also lovely, you can see the older siblings helping out Mum, while the littlies adore their big brother or sister or both! I love the way the kids all cuddled up to Mum for a few  sweet photos and then we just had a whole bunch of fun and let the kids be kids! These moments fly by and to have these amazing memories to look back on are just so special :)

Two beautiful wide-eyed brothers who simply adore each other, what a beautiful moment to capture!

We often photograph toddlers and babies and while the "window of opportunity" is quick with these ages - we ...

This lovely gentleman gave us a call after his gorgeous family (who we have photographed on a few occasions) wanted some portraits of him, as he missed the last family photo shoot! He decided to bring his gorgeous partner along as well as he was having his photo taken anyway, so why not capture some precious loving moments between the two of them at the same time! So we all met up at the iconic New Farm Park for a relaxed outdoor photo shoot! We captured some very relaxed moments as well as some sweet loving moments as well as some individual portraits - allowing each of the boys to shine on their own as well as together!

We kind of LOVE when little bubbas have the best facial expressions - and it happens at EVERY age! It is amazing when you have a little smile or yawn or their little hands grasp your finger so tightly! And check out the gorgeous head of hair on this little man.... it just adds to the personality. Little Jack was full of expressions at his photo shoot with Mummy and Granny, here at our East Brisbane studio :) You can already see he gets his personality from his very funny Mummy, who was an absolute natural with him :) And seriously, you can't beat Granny cuddles - she is totally in her element and had little Jack settled EVERY time! ...

 Fun family alert!!! It's so delightful when everyone is just ready to have some fun at their photo shoot and every spurs each other on with lots of laughs and cuddles in between! We went to visit this beautiful big Brisbane family who had treasured photographs with us many years ago and they really had me laughing the whole time. Four beautiful children and their very proud parents took me around their gorgeous home to capture lots of different moments of togetherness. The cheeky twins kept us on our feet while their adoring sisters were the best assistants! What an absolutely fun and hilarious photo shoot....as you can see from our results ;)

It is so precious to watch a sibling excited to know they have a little baby brother or sister coming along .... a new little play buddy!

<img src='/images/default-source/melbourne-blogs-2012/Vincent.jpg?sfvrsn=0' /> &nbsp; It&rsquo;s true babies are BEAUTIFUL!&nbsp; What a handsome man this little boy will grow into. Albert was a delight to photograph. His adorable features and big beautiful eyes were infectious, along with this cheeky charismatic smile. When Albert and his proud parents walked into the Katrina Christ Photographer Studio immediately you could feel the love that surrounds this family and how head over heels mum and dad were for their little baby boy. Photographing this precious moment in their life and capturing Albert at this age illustrates how innocent and pure children are. They are a true blessing! Looking at this photograph I see; joy, kindness and something so precious and special. &nbsp;A memory Albert can now look back ...

A friend of mine shared this blog with me just last week, and, as you will see too, it is just so beautiful, and so sad, that I just had to share it with you all... There will be no portrait photos in this post. &nbsp;This letter wasn&rsquo;t mailed &ndash; it was at my doorstep when I got home a couple months ago. &nbsp;I read it, I cried, and read it again &ndash; probably a hundred times by now. &nbsp;It wasn&rsquo;t easy to read &ndash; and honestly, as much as it validates what I do for a living &ndash; I wasn&rsquo;t sure I was going to share it either. &nbsp;If you choose to read through the letter, you will know ...
