Rogers Maternity - Shellharbour Maternity and Newborn Photographer

When Elise and Matt first contacted me to capture their maternity and newborn photos, I instantly knew it was going to be fun. 

Elise and Matt decided on Killalea State Park or as us locals know it "The Farm" at Shellharbour for their session. They often enjoy picnic lunch and dinner dates here and felt it was apart of who they are as a couple and now a family.  I loved hearing how they met, about their first, second and third dates and who they would be if they were super heroes. We also had some laughs with some of the answers! 


Thank you Elise and Matt for a fun afternoon, stay tuned for their newborn images! Special thanks to Paris and Al for the referral, I seriously appreciate the support.

Sibling fun - Southern Highlands Family Photographer

They fight, they squabble, they laugh, they love, they are siblings. 
 

Justine contacted me to capture these two gorgeous kiddos playing and having fun together, as brother and sisters do (when they are not fighting). One day they will be older and arguing over who's turn it is to empty the dishwasher, cook dinner or take the car. We headed to their family property on the outskirts of Mittagong, NSW where they will one day soon build their dream home. I loved that they chose here for their family session, as it will always hold a special place in the family and it shows what their property looked like before the brick and mortar. I believe in creating a space for little ones to be their cheeky selves, where they can be silly, have fun and well, be kids. This is what documenting childhood is all about, capturing them, being them, being kids. 

I believe all families should have tangible memories printed and filling photo albums and walls. If you believe this to, I would love to chat to you more about how we can make that happen. Get in touch here

The "D" Family - Wollongong Family Photographer

It was a lovely Autumn afternoon in Wollongong and the "D" Family and I headed to the beach to capture some family photos and a special announcment!

I love that they bought their fur baby to the session as they are just as much a part of the family as a human. I love how you can see him in the backgroud of alot of images, he was never far from the action. 

If you would like family images like these, that are fun and relaxed then I would love to chat to you more. You can contact me here

The 'F' Family - Wollongong and Southern Highlands Family Photographer

No matter where your family are in the world, they will always be family and it is important to capture moments together. 

That is exactly what the 'F' family did when their parents visited Wollongong for Christmas all the way from the UK. 

When Anna contacted me about capturing some speical moments for them while her parents in law were here from the UK I was super excited, even more so when they wanted to include their puppy in the session. Choosing a location was easy and I learnt why at our session. Anna requested Fisherman's Beach at Port Kembla, a secluded little cove just below Hill 60. I grew up in Wollongong and never knew it existed! At the session they explained the importance of this beach, when they were first in Australia looking for their new home, her husband and father in law discovered this little gem of a spot and did some fishing here, that was 4 years go and the last time they were together in Australia. 

We had loads of fun playing, running around, climbing the sand bank and sharing memories. I loved that I was able to capture some beautiful loving moments of Mark and his parents together, the emotion and love that was showing was moving. 

Thank you for allowing my to capture some very precious memories for you all.

If you would like family images that are full of love, fun and laughs then I would love to chat with you, you can contact me here

Baby M - Wollongong Newborn Photographer

Newborn sessions capture those life changing chapters in a family's story. If you think about it, our lives are story books, with each moment or adventure adding a chapter and those everyday mundane moments are the beautifully written paragraphs in those chapters. 

In home newborn sessions create a chapter through images, they capture the home where you first bought your child home to, the place where many first happen, the place where you bond and will watch them grow. It is the place you will never forget and will always be connected to because of what small moments happen there. Having your newborn images in your homes creates a tangible memory of these moments, one day that might be all that is left. 

Relaxed, love filling newborn images that are real are what I strive to give families for their stories.  Contact me here if you would like to chat about how I can create images like this for you.

The 'J' Family - Wollongong and Southern Highlands Family Photographer

On a hot summers day in Wollongong, just before Christmas, I met up with the 'J' family at Port Kembla Beach. 

It was a bit earlier in the day than what I normal shoot but that didn't stop us from having fun.
We played, ran around, ate sand, laughed and chatted about life. It turned out that their daughter was my daughter's buddy at school. Thank you for allowing me to capture your beautiful family.
