The 'H' Family - Wollongong Family Photographer

Sun, sand, water and a gorgeous family. What more can I ask for in a lifestyle family session.

Meet the Hardy family who travelled to Wollongong to have their session with me to celebrate their darling girl turning one. Danielle is also a photographer, and it is such an honour when a fellow photographer trusts you to capture their family (and a bit nerve wracking).

We had a lovely time at the beach, playing games, singing songs, playing with shells, having loads of cuddles and kisses and dipping our toes in the water.

Family lifestyle sessions are relaxed and fun, they focus on connections and emotions and I promise I only ask for one smile and look at me photo. If you would like to know more about family sessions with me, I would love to chat, you can get in touch with me here.

Baby N - Wollongong Newborn Photographer

Meet the Homers. you may remember seeing them on my website and social media accounts when I did their maternity session back in 2018 (yes, it has taken me that long to blog).
Well, they had their beautiful baby boy in January and he is just perfection.

I always feel so blessed to be welcomed into family homes to document their lives, their chapters and story. This is one of those really special chapters, one that is even more special knowing everything these guys have gone through. These guys are one of the most chilled and relaxed families I know, they don’t take life for granted, they treasure every moment and don’t sweat the small things. Everything is a blessing and they truly are an inspiration.
This is another reason I love in-home newborn sessions, they let families be themselves, let their guard down and just relax. It lets me capture the true story and tell it through my eyes.

Thank you Homer Family for allowing me to capture this chapter for you.

Carlie and her tribe - Wollongong Maternity Session

Carlie and her gorgeous family I first met when our little ones where babies through the Illawarra South Coast Multiple Birth Association and we instantly hit if off.

Carlie and her family are one of the most, humble, kind, fun, crazy, living life to the fullest families I have ever met and being in their presence brings a calm and peaceful feeling over you. When Carlie told me she was expecting another little babe, I was BEYOND excited for them, as I know just how much this precious little one means to them.

Carlie booked her maternity and newborn in and we had the most amazing evening, laughing, dancing and discussing what they thought their baby would be like. Thank you guys for allowing me document this special chapter in your life story.

If you would like to document your pregnancy and newborn in a relaxed, fun, authentic photography session, I would love to hear from you, contact me here.

Baby Z - Wollongong Newborn Photographer

It was a sunny summer morning in the Illawarra and I was welcomed into the home of this gorgeous family. I knocked on the door and the lovely Sandra greeted me with a “Hello, How are you going, it’s been a long time” I was blown away to see a friend from high school standing in front of me, someone I don’t think I had seen for nearly 20 year…(boy that makes me feel really old!). I didn’t recognise her name on the booking form as she has married the love of her life Neel.

It was such an honour to be welcomed into their home to capture this very special chapter in their lives, the birth of their baby girl. The connection, love, all pure calmness I felt and witnesses was nothing short of BEAUTIFUL. This little babe is one lucky little girl to be apart of this family, It was great to catch up with Sandra, hear and what path our lives too after since high school and what path our lives too after.

Here is what Sandra had to say.

Hey Jade, 

Thank you so much for all the beautiful photos you took. We are in love with them and will treasure them for many years. 

Thank you for making it a comfortable shoot for us all. We loved your style and the relaxed nature you brought to the shoot. We will definitely be seeing you again.

Relaxed, calm, full of love and authenticity is my type of newborn session. If you would like a newborn session that is not “in the box” I would love to hear from you. You can contact me here.

The "F" Family - Wollongong Family Photographer

It has taken me a while to blog this session (hands up who else is really slack with blogging) but, this gorgeous family was the winner of a competition I ran in the second half of the last year. At some points we both thought this session was never going to happen, after been rained out about 5 times. Mother nature made up for it though when we finally got to the session as the weather was PERFECT and the sunset was spectacular. We had the best evening running around the beach playing and capture moments of fun and joy. I really loved getting to know them all and capturing some special images for them that are priceless.

Thank you Sonia and family for your support and allowing me to capture your gorgeous family.

A girl and her horse - Wollongong Photographer

Mickey was heading overseas to live and work for 6 months and was going to miss her boy Dudley fiercely. So we headed out one afternoon here in Wollongong and captured the love they have for each other in some stunning afternoon light.
