The "B" Family - Wollongong Family Photographer

What can I say, I am one incredibly lucky person to be able to have a job that I absolutely love and be a newborn and family and photographer that my clients continue to return to. These guys I now am proud to call my friends.

I have watched their first born Airlie grow and become a big sister, I have captured Ally's pregnancy with Betty, her newborn and 6 month photos and now her 1 year images, plus a couple of extended family sessions. To be honest, words cannot describe what this type of loyalty means to me and I am SO thankful for it and even more thankful that I get to make amazing friendships with my clients. 

The Bates family are so easy going and relaxed and we always have loads of laughs when we are together. We once again headed to "The Farm" at Killalea State Park, which is where they love to spend their time. We played, danced, sang, picked flowers and tickled our way through the late afternoon. When Airlie was a baby, we captured an image with them on the tailgate for the car they purchased on their honeymoon in Queensland and restored. At this session, we updated that image to include Betty. 

Thank you to the Bates family for allowing me to once again capture your gorgeous family. I am so thankful to call you my friends.

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

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.

Fuller Family - Wollongong Family Photographer

When your baby girl turns 1 you need to celebrate the momentous occasion with a family photography session. 

That is exactly what the Fuller's did for their gorgeous and full of smiles daughter Sophie's 1st birthday. It was a beautiful winter's afternoon, I headed up to Narrabeen on the Nothern Beaches of NSW. When I arrived, I was instantly taken back by the beauty that surrounded me. 

We met at Narrabeen beach, we played, chatted, laughed and sung wiggles songs. We then headed just down the road to Narrabeen lakes where they spend a lot of their time as a family, having picnics, walks and lazy Sundays. We watched the sunset over the lake and the sky lit up in a rich amber colour. It was the perfect way to end the day. 

Thank you to the Fuller's for showing me your beautiful home town. See what they Fuller's had to say about their session here.

I am available for travel for family sessions, If you would like to have fun, relaxed and playful images on your walls of your family, please get in touch here, I would love to hear from you.

C Family - Wollongong Family Photographer

A sweet family session on a summer's evening in Wollongong. 

As a family photographer in the Illawarra, I am blessed to be able to use the stunning beaches we have. For the C family, this beach holds a special place in the heart. It is where they raise their children and spend many family moments together creating memories. 

I loved capturing their family story in a playful and real way. You can see what they had to say about the session with me here.
