Pip & Dee - Little BFF Session | Melbourne Childrens Photographer

There's nothing quite as sweet as two little girls sharing jokes and laughter.  These two are best of friends and spend nearly all of their time together making one another giggle, hugging and just mucking around.  I love their innocent play and the way they can just be so natural and comfortable with each other.  If only life could always be this simple.  These are the memories that I want to preserve for my children so that they can always look back and remember the carefree times they spent with their bestie.

What better way to preserve these beautiful moments than with a Little BFF Session.  Just imagine how much they'll laugh looking back on these with their own children one day xx

Melbourne Spring Wedding - Georgina & Jason

Absolutely loved capturing Georgina and Jason's special day!  For them it was all about the uniting of their two beautiful families as much as it was about them being married for time and all eternity.   Enjoy your happily ever after, you deserve!  xx

The Stunning Miss Mia - Melbourne Portrait Photographer

I am so excited to share this session with you!  I have been wanting to get this young lady in front of my lens for quite a while now (that hair!!) and we were finally able to make it happen.  These are again shot at my fav location in the Dandenong Ranges. 

The morning started out very chilly and wet and we weren't sure how it was going to go but we trudged on.  The sun finally came out and we were able to finish off our session with these amazing ballet images at the end.  I am absolutely thrilled with the results. Mia, you are amazing xx

Also, a very big shout out to the lovely Peri of Beautiful Elspeth for the awesome make up!

Spring Garden Family Session

I think I've found my new favorite location.  I am totally in love with these stunning English gardens in the Dandenong Ranges.  Add to that some gorgeous kiddos and you've got the perfect recipe for some stunning pics.

Pre School Fun

I recently had the opportunity to photograph the children at my daughters Pre School.  I absolutely love hanging out with the kids and photographing them.  You get so many different emotions and faces out of them.  Most of them loved having their picture taken and really played it up in front of the camera.  And then others were very reserved and at the beginning would hardly even look at me.  Being able to sit with these kids, play with them and be able to capture beautiful natural expressions and smiles made my day. 

This was a challenging experience but I loved every minute of it! Here are some of the kids.

Fun Beach Session

Had so much fun with this gorgeous family.  The kids were a little unsure about jumping off the pier at first, but after they got the first one out of the way there was no stopping them!  And how about this autumn weather!!  Can't beat a beautiful blue sky as a backdrop. 

Newborn Casting Call

I'm hoping to take a bit of a change in direction in my newborn style and would like to try some new things so I'm looking for 8 gorgeous newborns (5-12 days old) to photograph with the intent of building my portfolio.  I would also love to build my maternity portfolio, so am looking for 4 mums to be who are between 34-36 weeks pregnant.

Please give me a call on 0417 364 573 for more details.

Gorgeous Spring Session - Mornington Peninsula Family Photographer

So.... I'm finally getting around to blogging this session from October! This was one of my favourite sessions to date.  This family are so much fun and full of energy and they had such a great time running around this beautiful apple and cherry orchard on the Mornington Peninsula.  Can't beat a beautiful spring day, cherry blossoms and a gorgeous family!

Christmas Fun & Funny Faces

Can't help but love this time of year.  My girls have been having great fun drawing Christmas pictures on our window.  They also thought it would be great fun to climb on top of me and pull funny faces!  These two cheeky monkeys make me laugh!

Vaughn and Colette

Last month I had the absolute pleasure of heading down to Hobart to photograph these two beautiful little bubbas.  They definitely made me work for the shots but who can complain when there's so many cuddles to be had in between.  Gill and John, thank you so much for having me in your home and for your patience and kindness x 

Love Where I Live!

The best decision we ever made was to move our family out of the city.  I feel so blessed to live in such a beautiful part of the world.  When the sun is shining, we have so many beautiful places to go and play!  I can't imagine life in the hustle and bustle anymore and I think my kids (especially my youngest) would definitely be lost without the easy access to the sand and sea.  

Beautiful Winter Days

I just love waking up to the sun shining and beautiful blue skies on a winters morning.  I love the fact that I live close enough to the ocean to be able to take my beautiful girls there whenever I feel like it.  I love that they love running up and down the beach and feeling the sand between their toes.  I am indeed thankful for all these small blessings. 

Its often hard to find the time to appreciate these small things in the chaos of my busy life and sometimes it's just nice to be able to take half an hour and watch the joy on my little persons face as she runs around and enjoys exploring.  The wonder on her face as she discovers new things, as she points at fish swimming in the sea and just the goofy faces she pulls, fill my heart with happiness. I'm thankful that I can capture these precious memories to have for a life time and grateful to be able to share them with you.

Sculpture Adventure

After the business of Christmas and in the middle of packing to move house, it was nice to just spend a day hanging out with my girls.  The sun was shining so we thought we'd go on a little 'adventure' to the sculpture park in Frankston.  The girls loved running around and checking out all the sculptures and having a 'special' lunch in the cafe at the end. Even managed a few selfies and really, any excuse will do to get out and play with my new camera ;)

Keira

Meet teeny tiny Keira.  This little cutie was born weighing a tiny 5lb.  These photos were taken at 4 weeks old and she definitely made me work.  The poor little poppet just didn't want to settle, but with great persistence (and lots of soothing from mummy and grandma) we managed to get some gorgeous shots and some funny shots showing off the little personality that she's already developing.  Must say though, with all that resettling, I did get to enjoy lots of cuddles!!

Daivian

It was such a pleasure to photograph this gorgeous little man and his beautiful family.  I really enjoyed spending time with them and having the honor of capturing these precious memories for them.
