I photographed Oscar and his new little brother a few weeks ago. Don’t you think Oscar will make the perfect big brother? And isn’t Leo just adorable. All in all, a beautiful family.

Isobel : Hobart Newborn and Child Photographer

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

Here are two blog posts in one. Little Miss Isobel only a few weeks old and then One Year old smashing a cake. How time flies. Way too fast I tell you, it should be illegal for your children to grow up so fast!!  – I may or may not be coming off an emotional few days where my first born turned TEN! -

Beautiful baby girl : Hobart Newborn Photographer

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

Check out this sweet little cherubic face, so precious.

Oh how I love photographing “older” newborns. They have this little knowing and twinkle in their eyes. I love the way they look up at their parents with fascination, how small hints of a smile break through, an exciting personality developing right before our eyes.

It’s all about the smiles : Hobart Family Photographer

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

I can’t begin to explain how much I love photographing families. When I first started this business I was adamant I was going to specialise in newborns, because they “were easy”, and I would try and do as few family sessions as possible because they were “really hard to control”. Yep. Famous first words. Now, well it’s opposite. I quickly realised photographing newborns in the way I thought I was going to, is really really really really difficult. It takes skill, I tell you, and those who you see master this skill have taken years to perfect it – I’m not that determined. Nope. I’m a family photographer through and through. Don’t get me wrong, I love photographing newborns too – but mostly WITH their family.

Why do I love photographing families so much? It’s the connection and bond, the story they give me. Their unique interactions and inside jokes, the way they hold each other, the way they smile at each other – you know, those knowing smiles. It’s what gets me every time.

And here is the Harris family, allowing me to get a glimpse into their world – sharing those personal smiles with each other and my camera. Fan-tasa-lastic isn’t it?

Starting Over – Hobart Family Photographer

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014

Last year (2013) I was, along with everyone in Tasmania, shocked by the January Peninsula fires. It ached my heart that people had lost their homes but more importantly all their special possessions, including photos. I know if my home was ever under threat, photos would be the first thing I would grab (apart from my kids and cats!). To lose them would be devastating. So when Brigitte, a previous client of mine, contacted me and let me know her parents were among those who lost their homes, I was more than happy to give my time to start their collection of family photos.

I loved this extended family.

I even entered this following image into the 2013 Tasmanian AIPP Photography Awards and won a Silver.

I so admire that despite all that they have lost, they still know what is most important. Family and a sense of humour.

I love extended family sessions – if you’d like to know more about having one, let’s have a chat. dani@dreamandjustbelieve.com

October Twins : Hobart Family Photographer

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

As far as friends go, Amber is one of my favourites. She’s funny, kind and an inspiration as a mother. She has TWINS for goodness sake, and parents them and her older two children with grace and skill, how can that not be inspirational. Especially considering I struggle with raising only two fiesty children of my own. But this is not about me, it’s about her and the honour she bestowed upon me a year ago. She asked me to photograph her twins, in their hours old, fresh as a daisy, cute as a button, dry skinned, muslin beanied state.


I’d like to wish those precious twins, Miles and Stella a very happy first birthday, and in rememberance of their once small but ever so incredibly huge existence – here are the photos from their BIRTH day.
