Three cutie pies : Hobart Child Photographer

Thursday, September 3rd, 2015

These adorable kid’s grandmother organised this photo session, she wanted some photos for herself but also her daughter – which I thought was so nice. She even gifted her with a framed print and album. Mum’s are the best.

You may or may not have noticed, but I no longer use backdrops for my newborn sessions. I find them a little stifling creatively and much prefer the surrounding elements to contain their actual home.

This is the sweetness that is Phoebe (and her adorable big sisters). Those little cheeks are simply squishable are they not? Beautiful.

My boys : Hobart Family Photographer

Thursday, May 7th, 2015

It’s raining at the moment and it’s freezing. Not the best time for photos I guess. But I love Winter – which hearing myself say is even shocking to myself, I must be going crazy. Just think of it though – cute beanies, stylish scarves, jackets, funky boots. Layers are great in photos! Anyway, I digress, I hope everyone is staying warm AND fashionable.

Meanwhile, check out my adorable children. Before we moved out of our country rental last year, I managed to drag them outside for some winter photos. I mean, aren’t they just crazy stunning creatures.

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.

Newborn Aaliyah : Hobart Baby Photographer

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

Meet the sweet faces of this full of personality big sister and her  absolutely adorable newborn sister. (P.S. This newborn is almost one! That’s how far behind in blogging I am – imagine how many awesome sessions I still have yet to share! TONS!)

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.

I love watching siblings react to their new little brother or sister. In this case, it’s a sweet little princess gracing the lives of her brother and sister.

Does it get any better than this? A sweet little family, with their gorgeous bubba and their curly furred dog, at a park and beach! I mean, seriously – just look at that toothy grin, you can almost hear her giggles. Loved this session!
