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.

Baby Z - Wollongong Newborn Photographer

It was a sunny summer morning in the Illawarra and I was welcomed into the home of this gorgeous family. I knocked on the door and the lovely Sandra greeted me with a “Hello, How are you going, it’s been a long time” I was blown away to see a friend from high school standing in front of me, someone I don’t think I had seen for nearly 20 year…(boy that makes me feel really old!). I didn’t recognise her name on the booking form as she has married the love of her life Neel.

It was such an honour to be welcomed into their home to capture this very special chapter in their lives, the birth of their baby girl. The connection, love, all pure calmness I felt and witnesses was nothing short of BEAUTIFUL. This little babe is one lucky little girl to be apart of this family, It was great to catch up with Sandra, hear and what path our lives too after since high school and what path our lives too after.

Here is what Sandra had to say.

Hey Jade, 

Thank you so much for all the beautiful photos you took. We are in love with them and will treasure them for many years. 

Thank you for making it a comfortable shoot for us all. We loved your style and the relaxed nature you brought to the shoot. We will definitely be seeing you again.

Relaxed, calm, full of love and authenticity is my type of newborn session. If you would like a newborn session that is not “in the box” I would love to hear from you. You can contact me here.

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.

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. 
If you would like to chat about capturing your families story, you can get in touch with me here.

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. 

Warmly
