Port Kembla Beach, Wollongong maternity session by Wollongong Newborn PhotographerRead More
I am still blown away and completely honoured that families welcoming me into their homes and share part of their lives with me. Welcoming a child into your family is such a amazing moment and one that should be captured and preserved, after all it is a chapter in your story. The lovely D family welcomed me into their gorgeous home for their newborn session here in Shellharbour. We chatted about life and our stories so far. It was like friends catching up for the first time in a long time. It was wonderful to hear about their travels around Australia and getting all the hints and tips for when we go caravanning. Here is a selection of my favourite images from the session.
I would love to come and capture some everlasting memories of your family. You can contact me here to find out more about my packages and pricing.
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!
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
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.
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.
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.
