ALWAYS work with animals and babies in photography

Often we have a giggle at our photo shoots when our families say "I've heard, never work with animals and kids/babies"....but we absolutely love it!! It is such an adventure and your pets are your babies too! Your pets bring an entirely different element to your photo shoot and really bring out the laughs. I had an amazing time photographing this cute little Brisbane family and their ADORABLE mini  schnauzer, Gus,  who just loved Dad and climbed in for a photo with his new baby brother! Mum & Dad had a beautiful combination of my signature style photography, classic black and white! And also some lovely candid colour lifestyle photos. So much love for their new baby boy and fur ...

whooooo hooooo alarm clock went off at 3.45am this morning and it was time for my road trip to palm beach to meet this gorgeous family! We photographed this attractive bunch in their Brisbane home 2 years ago when the "kids" had entered their final teenage years and how cool to see them now, growing into young adults (who don't "do" photo shoots of course!). It was glorious light on the beach at that time of the morning! We hope to see your beautiful family again soon!  ;) Check out our awesome photography location...

We LOVE this little Brisbane Family! Over the years we have been lucky enough to see them expand their family one new addition at a time. With each of their kids having the most unique and gorgeous personality of their own - it never fails to be an amazing and adventurous photo shoot! These parents make sure each of their children has their time in the spotlight - capturing them as they are naturally and then all together. At the end of the photo shoot, the kids decided to dress everyone up and take a few funny photo's together! How gorgeous and creative and such important family time spent together. Creative play

Loved visiting this family in their gorgeous Western Suburbs home that one of their friends designed for them (also one of our beautiful families we have photographed over the years). It was so fun to explore all of the gorgeous spots we could capture the family and we traveled all over the house - including the back yard so we could also photograph the family dogs playing with everyone. I think we had the most fun on the bed though, with three big brothers doting on the newest addition to the family - baby Poppy! She is pretty chilled out and I think will have her little brothers wrapped around her little finger for the rest of her life! I ...

Little Rohaan was a baby of many expressions....and lots of hair....which we LOVE at the photography studio. We visited this new little family at their beautiful light filled apartment, which was a perfect location as little Rohaan loved looking out into the light :) He was pretty relaxed his whole photo shoot and is so blessed in that his Grandma is spending the first few months of his life visiting from India, so he was VERY loved at his portrait session and even managed to fall asleep at the end! Grandparents helping you with your newborn.

Photo Story Telling - from Wedding to Family - Brisbane

This is one special little Brisbane family right here. They have shared their life journey with me over the last 12 years, as they love, live, change and grow together. It is a true gift to be invited to share in a family's special moments, achievements, milestones and even tough times. I started capturing the love between Cathy & Rob at their Wedding in 2005! By this stage I was almost 10 years into running my business (this year I am celebrating 21 years! woohoo!). It is beautiful to witness two people in love and making it official; what made this Wedding extra special though, is that Cathy was pregnant with their first baby! I love that she can look ...

Celebrating in style last Sat night with Tanya Titman our accountant from Consolid8 and friends. I love supporting the Mater. They had some beautiful speakers who told their journey of their little premmies and the ups and downs of those first few months, the fact that you could never truly know what it was like unless you had been through this. I am extremely fortunate to have had no real problems with my kids. It certainly motivates you to want to do whatever you can to support those who are less fortunate. Because this could happen to anyone. We were just lucky. And this family who have been through so much continue to donate and support the Mater. This wonderful hospital ...

It is a very special occasion when we are able to follow our client’s journey when they decide to bring a baby into the world! We love to photograph the beautiful baby bump that begins the story, it is a time you forget quickly once your baby is born, but such a beautiful moment to capture. That gorgeous round belly, the excitement on the expectant mum’s face – it’s so amazing! We photographed this stunning Brisbane mum and her tiny little baby bump at the end of last year before closing down the photography studio for Christmas! How awesome that we got to come back for the year in 2017 and she had had her beautiful baby girl, Clementine. She ...

Summertime photo shoots in the backyard with the whole family

How awesome that we managed to squeeze in a photo shoot with this gorgeous Brisbane Family before Christmas! They had their beautiful Christmas tree set up in their lounge room which the two older boys were happy to show off! They were such good (and energetic!)  boys on the day and made sure they looked after their 2 year old sister, Ruby. She was a little natural in front of the camera and when she smiled, it really lit up the room and made everyone else smile :) We had fun running around in their backyard, but eventually headed back inside for some grapes and ice blocks as the summer heat really kicked in! What a fun photo shoot and ...

 I love that Caress came completely colour co-ordinated and with lollipops to her family photo shoot with her two gorgeous Kids and her Mum! AND the lollipops were for everyone - not just the kids. I have to say Grandma did an amazing job lifting her grand-daughter and grandson around the room while they giggled away! They have a special bond with their grandma which was very special to witness and photograph. Rose was a little mother hen to her younger brother James, he watched her and copied her moves! How beautiful to have three generations together in the Brisbane Studio to capture those special relationships! Bringing colour into your child's life is important :)

Loved visiting these cool dudes again in their amazing Paddington home!!  Last time Dad was missing from our photo shoot, so we definitely made a bit of a fuss about him! The boys climbed all over their Dad, he utilized his balancing skills a lot during their photo shoot. And they had nice snuggles with their Mum!  So many giggles at this photo shoot... Ollie & Hazz, you boys treated me with entertainment, soccer tricks and some beautiful cuddles/tickles/attempted kisses with your awesome parents!  It was so nice to come back and visit you guys again and meet Dad - I think he had a pretty good time too?! .....and got a work out! haha Look forward to hopefully seeing ...

These Brisbane parents are super relaxed, which definitely translates in their newest addition to the family - baby boy, Lachlan. Their gorgeous daughter is the energetic little lady of the family and absolutely loved her new baby brother. Sweet little Aniela - so clever, so entertaining and the BEST big sister! She was the center of our photo shoot today and I was SO very impressed by the words she already knew and the sentences she was forming. She had lots of fun playing within the photography background.... nudie rudie....because that's how you roll when you're 2 years and 2 months old! She giggled a lot with her Daddy, as he is just super hilarious in her eyes! She had ...

Awww visiting our families a year later and seeing how much the little ones have grown, developed and become their own little people is SO AMAZING and rewarding and just plain old FUN!! Will was a little champion today and his vocabulary is amazing and not even 2 years old yet! We did LOTS of running around, holding hands and spinning! Mum and Dad certainly got a workout. He has the best little giggle too and just wants to be Dad's little helper :) And his hair.....he is a little man now! What a pleasure seeing you all again xxx get outside with the kiddies
