The G Family - Wollongong Photographer

This gorgeous family was a belly full of laughter and fun. We headed to a beach here in Wollongong for their family session after they had travelled down from the Southern Highlands and let me say they had a BALL!

They cuddled, laughed, tickled, danced, chased each other around, the kids even said how much fun they had and they wanted to do it again! This is just a small selection of images from their session.

Here is what they had to say about their gallery
Oh Jade! I don't even know what to say.
I cried, and I cried a bit more (happy tears of course) and my heart exploded with pride. You have captured our family so perfectly and these are such precious memories of this time in our lives.
Thank you so very much for your talent and for delivering our images so quickly. Now I have the excruciating task of narrowing down which images to print for our walls.”

The beach is our home - Wollongong Family Photographer

Sandy feet, sun kissed noses and an afternoon of play and cuddles. What more could you ask for on a stunning autumn evening in Wollongong.

For these cuties the beach is their second home, they are there nearly every day and it is apart of their soul (even maybe a bit of inner mermaid). When Rin, a local coal coast small business owner contacted me, she wanted to capture her family, in their favourite place, doing what they love in a natural, raw and honest way. We had so much fun, just relaxing and playing. I loved capturing those little moments of shell collecting, playing in the sand and jumping the waves. When we were saying our goodbyes at the end of the session, their eldest daughter asked if I could come back to their house for dinner as she was having so much fun, which totally filled my heart.

Here is what Rin had to say upon viewing their gallery. “The photos are all amazing too. Now comes the hard part of deciding which ones to print...We had a lovely time at the shoot too. Thanks for making it all easy for us.”


Thank you for investing in family memories with me, I love that I can give families everlasting memories that they can relive when they look at their images.
If you would like to invest in memories that tell your family story, I would love to chat to you about making that happen.

The 'E' Family - Sydney Family Photographer

A couple of months ago I was contacted by this awesome mum and dad to capture some family moments for them and tell part of their story. Funny thing was, without them even knowing, they both contacted me on the same night.

We met up at Stanwell Park beach in the Illawarra where there are these EPIC sandstone cliff faces which create such an amazing backdrop of colour and texture. It was requested that I focus on family images as they never get many together, and the parents together to help celebrate a milestone birthday, along with some other photos mixed in to help tell their story, but keep them candid and natural. I loved that they trusted me to do what I do and created a space for them to have moments of fun, connections and be themselves.

Even though it was a warm Autumn day, the rain threatened all day but it held off right till the end of our session and created the most beautiful defused light. We had so much fun playing, exploring and getting to know each other.

What the clients had to say:
As expected, they are fantastic, and you have captured us in a light that we can be proud of I had a tear in my eye. My wife cannot stop telling me how much she loves them. Thank you"

Wilder - Southern Highlands Newborn Photographer

I am always humbled and so honoured to be asked into a family’s home to document their story, even more so when I am welcomed back when their newest family member has arrived safe and sound. Bringing home a new baby is such an intimate and special time. Everyone is getting use to the new family dynamic and totally falling in love with a special little baby.

You have probably seen this awesome family on my social media and website before. I was blessed to do an in-home newborn session for the cheeky little man on mums lap their below. Can I just say this newborn session was AMAZING!!!!! This family is amazing! The connection, love, fun, compassion and pride they have for one another is just out of this world. They are just in-sync and it shows in the images.

We had such a fun time cuddling, singing, playing, exploring, dancing and being creative, it was soul filling. Their home feels like a home, not just a house and they asked me to capture them, their story and what their life if at this time.

This is what Sarah had to say about their gallery

“Jade,

I honestly don’t know how to thank you enough. These images are just beautiful, I couldn’t love them more. Thank you for capturing our family so beautifully. These photos are priceless to me and I will always treasure them.

Thank you, thank you, thank you”

This is why I loving photographing the way I do, it is about all those little moments that happen that we don’t appreciate until later on and they are vital in telling the story. It is so important to get images that tell your story, one day, they might be all you have and you won’t care what you looked like, how much weight you had put on or how your home looked. You will care about the people in them, the connection, the love, joy and feeling of absolute pride that rushes through your body.

If you would like images that do all this let’s chat about how we can make that happen with a family or newborn session. I travel for sessions, so just because you are not based in the Illawarra doesn’t mean you cannot have one of these sessions.

Lastly. Thank you lovely Z family for having me in your home again and just being the wonderful, caring, people that you are.

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.


Enjoy

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.
