Laura + Chad and one baby bump - Wollongong Photographer

Our life together has just begun. You’re apart of me, my little one.

Back at the start of the year, on a beautiful summers evening I met Laura and Chad at one of my favourite spots here in the Illawarra for their maternity session. Let’s just say it is one of my favourite maternity sessions. We walked, explored, laughed and danced and celebrated the pending arrival of their first precious baby. I am so humbled and honoured to be able to capture such a special moment in this chapter of their story.

Here is what Laura said about their maternity session and gallery
”Thank you so much!!! We love the gallery.
We had lots of fun doing the shoot and it was so much better then we expected.. as in not being awkward. We love how you prompted us and told us what to do. We definitely needed and appreciate this.”

Keep an eye out for the newborn session we did a couple of months later. Its just as divine!

If you would like images that tell your story let’s chat!

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.

If you would like to know more about in home newborn sessions, I would love to chat to you, you can contact me here.

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.

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.

Baby "W" - Wollongong Newborn Photographer

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.
