Katrina's Philosophy - Brisbane Photographer full circle

"When we were children, there weren't any family photos on the walls in our home," says Katrina. So one day when a travelling photographer rolled into her tiny country town, the Cochran children's Sunday bests were ironed, their hair begrudgingly brushed and each pose carefully arranged on that traditional mottled background. Unfortunately, the resulting photo was not the image of perfect porcelain angels their poor mum had envisioned (and that were so popular in those days). Thumbs were being sucked. The siblings wore the scowls of children recently reprimanded for having hunched shoulders. "But it was authentic, and looking back at that picture always makes me laugh." It was this ideal Katrina carried through to her business. What's wrong with ...

Parents are so cool these days! These two Brisbane parents are no exception! Having won an awesome family photo shoot at the boys school festival, Cannon Hill Anglican College, donated by Katrina, Mum was already raring to go. So we did a beautiful natural make-up for Mum, then these beautiful teenage boys helped me set everything up :) Always nice to have little assistants (and by little, I really mean taller, haha!). And they were so fantastic the entire shoot. I love that everyone in the family really gave 110% , it was a full weeks work-out at the gym, but we have some pretty outstanding moments captured - awesome family portraits forever!

Say Hello to Little George Astley - 9 days old but so strong, sweetly stares into your eyes and has an amazing grip already. Alice & Barry you are such natural parents and he was an absolute gem today (and of course your little doggie Darcy!). This little photo is for Grandma - her FIRST Grandbubba wrapped up in a precious blanky she made especially for him AND she was also visiting during George's first few weeks of life, which was so special to capture. There is something about a portrait with a proud grandparent and newborn baby - encapsulates all that is so important in life :)

There is something about an older sibling adoring their newborn baby brother or sister that is completely heart-warming to the core! This little lady is honestly a wonderful and adoring big sister to her new baby brother Harry. At only a delicate 12 days old at their family photo shoot, Harry was pretty amazing, looking around with his big baby eyes and lifting his head. It was when he was cuddling up, skin to skin, with his big sister though, that you could see he was settled his most. And adorable Hannah loved every second of her cuddles, gently patting his back and saying in the softest voice "I'm patting him to sleep" and with that his little eyes closed ...

On the weekend I was fortunate to photograph this special occasion. What an amazing moment to have all these new members of this family together in Brisbane. How wonderful for the kids to each have children all around the same time.​ Baby Benjamin 5 weeks, who slept for the majority of the time. Four month old cuddly Alex and the leader of this little group is 6 month old Christopher. The beautiful mother of Benjamin, Natalie, said to us:- “I’m gifting this package for my mum in law's birthday to have a beautiful family portrait and some lovely prints with the whole family in Brisbane: because she gained three grandsons in 6 months”. 3 little boys, destined to become such close cousins ...

There was dancing, flipping, cuddling, kissing, giggling, bottom slapping and many cool toys at this photo shoot. I seriously giggle just thinking about it, then I see the hilarious photographs and remember the most FUN family photo shoot! Mia and Will, you are the coolest brother and sister! You rocked your ​portraits and how gorgeous to have seen your little baby faces from your first photo shoot up on your wall at home and now to see you both growing into lovely children (with the same cheeky smiles) is pretty great :) I hope this was a lovely surprise for your husband, Daniela. We can't wait to see you all again xx

Wow, how radiant is this new Mummy! Her glow absolutely shines through her Mum & Sister too, who were visiting Brisbane from New Zealand during their photo shoot. It is so special to be able to photograph 3 generations together (of girls too!) - a really special keepsake for baby Kiera to grow up and have. Rachelle is such a calm soul, she will be such a natural Mum and I am sure Aunty Brenda will always be there to keep the giggles going. Dad managed to have some sneaky cuddles in between the girls all being photographed together all the while this beautifully little newborn baby snuggled in to everyone and lapped up the attention.

We are so fortunate to photograph a lot of beautiful newborn babies, toddlers and expanding families every day, so it is SUPER fun when we get to visit BIG kids too - like this seriously awesome brother and sister (and Mum & Dad, of course). It's something a little different, but always still fun! These gorgeous Brisbane siblings invited me to their parents stunning home, to photograph the both of them for their Mum & Dad - What an awesome daughter! Despite Mum not sure about being photographed, we still managed to get her in a few photos (when she wasn't standing behind me teasing her adult children, hehehe). This was a really nice opportunity to update Kristy & Matt's ...

These parents should be pretty proud of their little guy Harper. He is personality PLUS and the BEST big brother to his new baby sister Scarlett! Scarlett had so many smiles at our photo shoot, with the biggest eyes looking up through the camera, I think she enjoyed her cuddles with her special Minnie & Mickey Mouse teddy's from family. These family portraits were quite special, as Mum & Dad and their two gorgeous little ones live in the UK and have been back in Australia (where Mum grew up), to visit their Grandparents! It was a beautiful sunshiny day at the Grandparents house - perfect for some beautiful photographs outside. Everyone jumped in on the fun and it was ...

Dear little Mr W is the apple of his Mum & Dad's eye! He will be walking in no time, as he is eagerly pulling himself up at any opportunity and is already SO tall! He was a very chilled out little man for his family photo shoot - even doing a little outfit change for some gorgeous shots playing in the sunshine in the back yard. Mr W has a lot of facial expressions and no matter which one he pulls - he is still so adorable. What an amazing way to start the day, photographing this lovely and energetic little Brisbane Family! We hope to see you again when you are running around ​Mr W!

Can I just say, these kids know how to yell the house down and have some fun! We had this huge family photo shoot in our Brisbane studio and it was such a ball! Rachael, Tim and their boys have invited us into their home to photograph their gorgeous family in the past, and so it was pretty amazing to have them bring in Tim's sister and her family as well as the head of this big family tribe - Mum & Dad/Grandma & Grandpa. Our photo shoot was right before Christmas last year, so all of the kids were excited the buzz of the festive season in the air. It was also a lot of fun to see the ...

Love love love this little Family. Mandy and Fi are the most gorgeous sisters and have been close girlfriends of mine forever. I have been so super lucky to be part of Mandy and her husband, Glenn's, journey having TWINS!

This photo shoot in my studio was actually a surprise from Mandy & Fi for their mother, the divine Valmae. The girls and I organised for the beautiful Brisbane Make-up Melissa Coleman, to come to our studio to treat Valmae and her girls to a gorgeous make-up and WOW they looked so beautiful.

What a divine little girl these two Brisbane parents have welcomed into their lives! And she is pretty lucky too, to have two really cool parents and a puppy dog who absolutely adore her. Sienna Rose was very happy having cuddles with Mum and Dad and looked so teeny tiny in dads arms. She also had some cuddles with her "Big Brother" Malta (the dog!). Amanda and Troy have a great love story and it was so cool to hear about their travels together and how their favourite/sentimental locations around the world have inspired their naming of Pup & Bub. It is always special being invited to the homes of our families as it is so nice and relaxed and ...

New Mum's always look so stunning with their excited glow! Cara was no different, greeting me with her big beaming smile, I thought she might have been telling a fib about just having a baby as she looked FABULOUS! We have visited Cara and Mike at their beautiful home in outer Brisbane for their first photo shoot with their gorgeous first born baby boy Steele (who is now 13 months and a busy little man with big blue eyes). These wonderful parents have now welcomed their second bub, a baby girl called Aviendha who is such a calm soul. Her entry into the world was anything but calm though, with Mum not aware she was pregnant until 24 weeks and ...

We first met Jodi & Phil, before they welcomed their beautiful baby girl into this world, when they had their pregnancy photo shoot in their home with their two gorgeous Border Collie's! They are pretty gorgeous together and giggled a lot, making it such a nice calm atmosphere, although the dogs did want to just keep playing!! hehe. We visited this gorgeous North Brisbane couple again once their newborn bubba Isla was born. She was so strong for only three weeks old, lifting her little head to look up at Mum & Dad and show off her beautiful big eyes! Thank you for having us back to your lovely home to meet your gorgeous girl!
