Last year I photographed sweet little Liam and his besotted parents. I love this type of session – relaxed, real, full of truth.
One of my most favourite sessions of 2012 has to be this one. Lovely Megan is one of my awesome repeat clients – we had a newborn session for little miss gorgeous Camila (look just how big she is now!!) and now for their new little addition Leo. It is ALWAYS so so wonderful to come back and see people again and again, watching kidlets grow never fails to blow me away.
Megan and her sweet family received my newest product the fantabulous “Keepsake” box. Here’s a peek at how awesome they are.
I’m on a mission to get up to date with all my blogging and sharing all the wonderful sessions I have had recently – lucky for all of you!!
We are starting way back at the middle of last year, when lovely Jess was pregnant and wanted some shots of her sweet little family of 3 before they turned into a family of 4. I was lucky enough to be asked back to take some more photos once their bubba was born.
I met the Brooks family a little while ago now (I know, I’m a slack blogger recently!) and we had such a fun time running around the gardens. Mum had expressed her desire to have a nice shot of her 2 year old who had never had any professional photos taken of her before. Oh God love 2 year olds and their unpredictability and endless energy.
I’m in love with albums – they are my most FAVOURITE product to sell. More so than digital files …I mean seriously, what do you do with them? Look at them? Print them? I have countless photos on my hard-drive I barely even look at – but that is a whole other topic.
Albums albums albums. And I LOOOOVE my supplier – beautiful, simple, lay flat, the pages are actually printed on photo paper. It’s exquisite. I can’t find enough words to describe just how awesome it is! And it’s such a perfect way to display your session, like you are telling a story of your family and those you love most.
So I thought it was time to share with you, what they look like. Obviously nothing compares to the actual feel of them – but I hope you get a good idea of what to expect.
And now, here is a recent album design straight from photoshop – don’t mind the vertical grey line, that won’t be printed, it is there to indicate the middle of the (seemless) pages.

Our 3rd ever session, see’s Ella at 4 years old and full of healthy beans.
We started our shoot with a play in the park, then a walk on the beach, a sit on the grass, a run in the waves and then finished off with the park again!! How can it get better than that?
Oh my goodness, I am sooo behind in blogging it’s crazy! This session was early December and I’ve been dying to share it for weeks!
I met my gorgeous friend Esther back in 8th grade (16 odd years ago, if you must know) and I got so excited when she asked me to photograph her family. Because, well … she has the cutest little family EVER. Seriously, she married a genuinely nice guy – who suits the loveliness and realness that is Esther. And their kids – oh, don’t get me started on those kids. So so so sweet – and tolerant of each other. This may just be the mother of two rough-head boys speaking here, but I have never met a pair of siblings that get along as well as they do. Just beautiful.
Earlier this year, I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Sam and Amber’s big wedding day. I had a ball watching her gorgeous family ride through the day with joy and love filled to the brim. So when she called to say she wanted a session with her parents and sister – I was so thrilled.
I love it when I go through the photos after a session and catch myself smiling. It’s great how you can tell how close a family is from the way they just enjoy each others company – whether it be laughing AT each other, or WITH each other. Ha! After their session Amber’s beautiful Mum Heidi asked me if all the other families I photograph were as crazy as they were. My answer … “Umm, not quite!” Haha. But I would love it if they were!
