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.

Meet Baby Wesley who is 3 weeks old. Alison and Xavier welcomed me into their home to photograph their precious new bundle of joy Wesley and their new family.

 When I arrived, Wesley was feeding and Alison just glowing with love and pride as she provided for her little boy. We sat and chatted about our lives getting to know each other while I captured some little moments of everyday life. 

Wesley has the most GORGEOUS Just want to squeeze cheeks I have ever seen. He loved been cuddled but not really kissed and just wanted to snuggle up with mum and dad and sleep. We also couldn't forget about capturing their fur baby and getting an all new family photo. I also love it when families include/have things in their session that have sentimental value. Wesley's stunning wicker bassinet was his father's and also his grandmother's bassinet! How special to be sleeping in the same bassinet your father and grandmother slept in as babies. 

Thank you Alison, Xavier and Wesley for welcoming me into your beautiful home and sharing this story with me.

If you would like me to tell a part of your story, please get in touch here, I would love to chat with you.

I honestly have no words for this amazing in-home newborn session. These are our amazing friends that we class as our family and I am so blessed to have captured all three of their precious children, both in Hayley’s tummy and when they have arrived earth side. It was so heart warming to be able to capture their complete family in their forever dream home.

Thank you Hayley and Shaun for trusting me to capture this very special time for you all and for all the support and encourgment you have given to me. We love you guys. x

Hayley Maternity - Shellharbour Newborn Photographer

When your home is full of love and laughter your life is full. Life is all about moments and as a lifestyle photographer here in the Illawarra I love capturing those moments so that they last forever. Having your maternity session in your family home is something that I wish more people did.

Meet the Crowther family who I am lucky enought to say are some of my dearest friends. When I found out Hayley was expecting their next bubba I was beyond excited and happy for them. When you walk into their AMAZING dream home you are instantly hit with a welcoming feeling in the air, that kind that makes you want to take you shoes off, put your feet up and enjoy a cuppa with friends. Noah and Eloise are characters and super excited to meet their little brother or sister. I can just see the Eloise is going to be a mother hen and a massive help to Hayley.

Thank you for allowing me to capture your pregnancy in your family home, I cannot wait to get cuddles.

Warmly

Life is full, it has so many up's and down's, but bringing a new baby into the world is definitely one of those up's. It is a new chapter in your family story, it is beautiful, surreal, challenging and simply amazing.

There are so many emotions when you are planning or find out you are pregnant, excitement, sheer terror, doubt, confidence, excitement again...it's a rollercoaster, just like life. You start asking yourself, Are we ready? Is now the right time? Can we afford this? Will we be able to give our child the best life? Will I be a good Mum or Dad? Nothing can prepare you for welcoming your first child into your lives, but I can promise you, you will never feel love like you do when you have a child, you will wonder why life felt so full before you had a baby (and what you did with all your time) and you will never, ever regret it.

The Rogers family, you may remember from their maternity session a little while back, you can see that here. They welcomed baby Olivia into the world in late May and we did her Newborn session when she was 3 weeks old and she was a pure joy. Elise and Matt are so cool and calm and absolutely smitten with their precious baby girl. We relaxed around their home, shared stories about birth, childhood, parenthood and giggled at the little facials and sounds Olivia was giving us. It was a true honour and pleasure to witness and capture this new chapter for this gorgeous little family. 

If you are having a baby soon, I would love to chat to you about capturing this very special time. You can contact me here

Baby "H" - Illawarra Newborn Photographer

3 years ago I photographed my second wedding, it was the wedding of Nat and Chirs. A fun loving couple that were (and still are) so comfortable with each other and knew what they wanted from life together. One of those dreams was a child of their own and finally, after much longing, a couple of weeks out from their 3rd wedding anniversary, Master Henry arrived. 

I am beyond happy for this little family and so blessed that they asked me to capture this next chapter in their lives, their newborn images. When I arrived at their home, pride was beaming out of them and you can see the pride, love and joy in these images. I simply love being able to document so many moments for families and am truly honoured as a newborn and family photographer that clients continue to trust me with these precious memories. 

Thank you Nat, Chris and Henry for a wonderful morning, cuddles and the honour of documenting this chapter for you.

Thanks for stopping by.
