When you turn 3, you are your own little person. Still reliant on Mum & Dad for the essentials, but have a mind of your own. Today we met the boss of this family's household...three year old, Mia. A gorgeous little girl with her curly pigtail, was quiet at first but then got straight into entertaining everyone with her bouncy ball stunts. She was also lucky enough to have her Nanny over from the UK, for the arrival of her little sister, Isla. Dad jumped in a took a hit for us a few times when it came to playing with the bouncy ball, but I think he secretly loved it as it would crack Mia up and she has ...

Family photo shoot in the Brisbane studio - Mum and her boys!

This hilarious family came to visit our East Brisbane Studio for their photo shoot and it was a total blast! The boys have definitely inherited their mum's awesome sense of humour and had us all laughing the entire photo shoot! We started their session with a gorgeous natural make-up for mum and she came to the party with her awesome beach babe hairstyle. It didn't take the boys long to relax and let loose and even take on some great impersonations! We covered a lot of combinations on the day, thanks to these guys being absolute stars (despite not ever having family photos taken before). It might have been a bit of a workout too (photographer included), but that's the ...

We were so excited to finally get out to photograph this awesome Brisbane family, after Mum Toni won our photography package from the Villanova Carnival! We had been trying to make it work during school holidays as her and Husband Ross have three school aged kids, it took a few rounds, but we got there and it was so much fun! They have worked hard renovating their backyard, including adding an awesome swimming pool. They had their cute and very well behaved mini schnauzer Argie Bargie in their family photo shoot as well - You have to include the fur babies!! He was a bit of a star as well :) What a beautiful relaxed family with some awesome family ...

Twins, twins, twins - we love them! And these two baby boys were so divine! Now over four months old, you can bet they were at that gorgeous interactive age. Very relaxed bubs, they started their photo shoot having cuddles with mum and dad, wearing their cool little hoodies. They had mastered the model stare, but after a little while started to get a bit tired as it was around nap time. So mum & dad swaddled them up and just like that, they were out and in power kip mode. After about 20 mins of sleeping, they both woke up with the most beautiful smiles and giggles. By this stage their adoring Grandparents had arrived too, so they got ...

This shoot was hilarious! What a trio of seriously witty kids who kept me on my toes. Each with their own unique personality - we all clicked pretty quickly and they hammed it up for the camera! hehe. Dad was away on business, so Mum decided it would be awesome to have a photo shoot with her kids during the last few days of the school holidays - good on you Mum! As we usually see- we had their fur baby of the family in the portraits. Marbles was his name, and he was just as hilarious as the kids and a very loved family member!&nbsp;Why pets are so important!

We have said it before and we'll say it again - we LOVE twins! We often have our lovely parents call our photographic studio to tell us all about the special little person (or people) who have just entered their world.... and changed it forever. We often hear about little boys arriving, but this photo shoot was special with TWO little baby girls, welcomed by these VERY proud and natural parents. Mum &amp; Dad had already adapted to the 'tag-teaming' routine required when you have twins and are lucky enough to have loving Grandparents who adore their new little grand-daughters (and the twinnies adore them too). They were so little at 10 weeks of age, after arriving 5 weeks early ...

Premmie baby photos - so cute

It is always heart-stopping when such little newborn babies lift themselves so high when they are having some tummy time. Beautiful little Harvey, at only one month old (and a premmie baby) was so super strong at his Brisbane photo shoot. Not only was he lifting himself during tummy time, but also when Mum and Dad cuddled him he would tilt his head back to try and follow the light streaming in from the window. He had the most gorgeous white blonde hair and absolutely loved skin on skin time with his Mummy after a feed. Such a natural and relaxed little family, you can see this translates in their little guy, Harvey. Some beautiful family photos captured and I ...

Here is an amazing Mum-to-be, so super relaxed with the most beautiful baby belly! She walked in as cool as ever with her converse shoes on and a giggle to boot! Her little man (batman, as he is so fondly nick-named!) is pretty active and decided to have a few belly kicks while we were photographing mum. I have to say she rocked her maternity body in a few cool outfits, but had a serious glow when she went with natural skin showing over her amazing bump. This little guy will be so loved by Mum and Dad and will be a very relaxed character for sure, I just hope he managed to turn for Mummy before his due date. ...

This beautiful Brisbane Mum is very humble, but truly is a fantastic Mummy to her very adorable Isabella and a seriously independent woman. She was a little shy and not used to being photographed, however, once her gorgeous daughter was dancing around and showing off for the camera she was a lot more relaxed and showed her witty side - she is pretty amazing! I have to say I really enjoyed watching the amazing bond these two gorgeous girls have :) And their portraits together are such amazing memories captured forever and what a keepsake for her gorgeous daughter and grandchildren in the future!

We have been fortunate enough to photograph this big family many times. They have had some amazing times being photographed together as a family, but they also have their children all photographed at the same age milestones. This time two years ago we visited them to photograph their two gorgeous daughters in their Brisbane home at the ages of 21 years old and 11 years old. This time, it was the boys turn! James (21 yrs) &amp; Sam (11 yrs) had individual photos and photos together. They were both such a pleasure to photograph with their lovely smiles and willingness to jump into it!

This is personally one of my all time favourite shots from this photo shoot - the first baby born at Greenslopes Hospital in Brisbane. It brings back lots of memories for me as I was in that position three times with the birth of my daughters, feeling so scared and excited. Look at the love between Mummy and Daddy- to - be Dad is so loving​,&nbsp;caring and supportive. A moment in time&nbsp;💕💕💕

I am always amazed by big families with lots of children who can still maintain some organised chaos around their Brisbane home! This 'tribe' of kiddies have an AMAZING mum, who is clearly deeply dedicated to them and vice versa. They also have an amazing Nanny who has helped raise them over the last decade! AND we had the grandparents visit during the family photo shoot, which is always fun, and especially since we had a particularly cheeky Grandad this day. It was incredible to watch how seamless everyone was together, including Sarah's new partner, Rob, who was a little unsure about being photographed, but clicks soooooo well with the kids and had a few smooches with his gorgeous girl ...

Long car rides, the stress of navigating to an unfamiliar address, packing tote bags so they're bursting at the seam with snacks, nappies and toys, extra clothes - any family knows how exhausting travel can be.
