"Mum, can I see the pictures that you put on Instagram and Facebook of me before you post them". It's something I have been weary of for a while now. She is establishing herself as her own person and sometimes I forget that. Whilst she will always be my baby girl, I admit that sometimes I probably treat her a little more grown up that what she actually is. And maybe being the oldest I expect a little more from her too. I love this age, we can sit and have conversations tog
I met these two cuties over the Queen's Birthday Long Weekend in Marcus Hill on the Bellarine. A dear friend had organised a beautiful gift for her friend that was coming to visit. I was seriously honoured to help out by photographing these two gorgeous girls as they turned one. They were all smiles and just melted my heart. Those big brown eyes and bubba cheeks. There were countless times of "Naawww they are sooo cute" moments. So much fun. These are just a few of my fa
A few weeks back now I received an inquiry from a beautiful lady about photographing her baby shower. It was all the way over in Mornington and just a little bit of a hike from Ocean Grove. Our planets just seemed to align and we locked in the booking. After all, who doesn't love a baby shower, in a beautiful location and for a beautiful and excited Mumma to be. A few days later I received a message that mummy to be had her baby girl. A few weeks early, but safe and well.
There has been a bit of a run through the month of December of extended family photography sessions. I love these sessions, getting the whole family together for an afternoon of fun and laughs. It's so important to capture everyone together. Life gets so crazy that time goes by so quickly, another year passes and you still haven't managed to get everyone together. These guys were successful on organising everybody to meet and even did really well with their outfit choices.
I remember meeting this gorgeous mumma and talking about a session with her little guy 12 months ago! Wowzers, 12 months has passed by so quickly. But a few weeks ago we did catch up for a Mummy and me session on the beach in Ocean Grove. I just love this part of the world and was so excited to do a late afternoon/early evening session on the beach. With the sun starting to lower in the distance and the breeze on the beach, a perfect setting was created. It's fair to say t
I photographed this gorgeous family a few weeks ago down in one of my favourite spots in Barwon Heads. Before the cold snap! Although looking at the barefoot little guy dipping his toes in the water still makes me shiver knowing just how cold that water is. As always, I was a little excited about this family photography session. These guys are just so gorgeous and I admire just how close they all are. Family means the world to them and I wanted to deliver something a litt
I photographed this gorgeous girl a few weeks ago for her yearly photographs. On this lovely weekend I headed off from my usual places in Ocean Grove to a gem of a location full of history in Geelong. Looking through these pictures I can't help but wonder, when did they become such little people? They'll always be our babies, but they just look so much older. I'm convinced it's the first year of school that does it. This little lady is always so smiley and I have so much f
Wowzers is all I can say about this session. I prayed all day that the sun would stay out for us. I had a vision that included Barwon Heads and it's beautiful back light for this gorgeous mumma to be maternity photography session. Unfortunately it wasn't to be. I did get one sunny photo, but the rest, well.... They were magic. Mother nature didn't produce sun but she did deliver an amazing backdrop. Whilst capturing some gorgeous shots in Barwon Heads, we looked up to t
It's starting to get a little cold, the leaves have changed and the sun is a little less harsh. Hmmm, it must be autumn. For me, that's the calm before the storm..... Winter.. I'm not a fan of winter time. Although I do love the soft light and the colours that come with this time of year. I met up with this gorgeous family for their family photography session along the river in Geelong. The Barwon river, perfect for autumn photos and a bit of change of scenery to my usu
