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.

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.

The 'C' Family - South Coast Family Photographer

As a family photographer here in Wollongong I love capturing families over a year and seeing how much their little ones have grown. 

I first met Reece and Sam at their maternity session. Sam and I instantly hit it off, she is one of the most honest, kind, funny and real women I know. Sam is the kind of person who tells it how it is, yep everything how it is and if you follow her on instagram @shesthefunmum you will know exactly what I mean. Since then I have been blessed to photographer Fluer and her parents (and big fur brother Angus) through her first year. One thing I have learnt is that Fluer is a mummy's girl and no one (not even Dad) is allowed near her mumma bear, you will see what I mean below. 

Thank you guys for allowing me to be your family photographer, it fills my heart that I get to watch your family grow and go through each chapter.

The 'W' Family - Southern Sydney Family Photographer

It doesn't matter where is the world you are, family is always family, and when the time comes that you are all in the same country at the same time, it is like you have never been apart. 

The 'W' family contacted me to capture the real moments of their family coming together to celebrate a family occasion. The brief was to capture life as it was, kids as they were and the family just been together. They were staying a beautiful holiday home in Bundeena, in the Royal National Park Sydney. We headed across to the local park to have a play and some fun, and boy did everyone have fun playing together. I am able to share just a few images of this fun filled afternoon of family fun. 

If you are wanting to capture your loved ones just hanging out and playing I would love to hear from you. You can contact me via the Let's Chat page.

The Extended 'F' Family - Wollongong Family Photographer

Large families can live close together or all over the world. So, when this gorgeous family were in Wollongong, NSW all at the same time, it called for a family photography session. 

When Amy first contacted me wanting to capture her large family coming together for the first time in a couple of years I knew I had to capture the fun and all the cousins playing together as well as a family photo for each family. It was a beautiful afternoon at Little Austi Beach in Austinmer, NSW. We played, joked, laughed and told stories. The kids built sandcastles, jumped over ditches and explored the rocks. It was lovely to see them all playing so nicely together and really connected, even thought they don't see each other all that often. 

Thank you to you all for allowing me to capture the fun of your family. If you are wanting to capture your families together having fun, I would love to hear from you, you can chat to me here

Thanks for stopping by,

Baby J + Family - Wollongong and Southern Highlands Newborn Photographer

A handsome baby boy is born and a family of 3 is now a family of 4. The love is exploding out of this family home.

I had the absolute pleasure of capturing Baby J and his family in 2016 (Yes, I am very behind on blogging). We almost rescheduled due to the horrid rain we were having here in Wollongong, but I am so glad that we didn't. We played, cuddled, fed, laughed and gave Baby J a bath. Miss M was full of life and loads of fun and loved her present from Dad for being so good and got to work, pampering herself right away. 

Thank you for welcoming me into your gorgeous home and capturing such precious moments for you. It was really hard to choose the images to put in this blog post. 

If you would like images like baby J's that are relaxed and real I would love to hear from you. You can contact me here

Thanks
