Baby J + Family - Wollongong and Southern Highlands Newborn Photographer

A handsome baby boy is born and a family of 3 is now a family of 4. The love is exploding out of this family home.

I had the absolute pleasure of capturing Baby J and his family in 2016 (Yes, I am very behind on blogging). We almost rescheduled due to the horrid rain we were having here in Wollongong, but I am so glad that we didn't. We played, cuddled, fed, laughed and gave Baby J a bath. Miss M was full of life and loads of fun and loved her present from Dad for being so good and got to work, pampering herself right away. 

Thank you for welcoming me into your gorgeous home and capturing such precious moments for you. It was really hard to choose the images to put in this blog post. 

If you would like images like baby J's that are relaxed and real I would love to hear from you. You can contact me here

Thanks
Jade

 

Baby L - Wollongong and Southern Highlands Newborn Photographer

His parents could not imagine life without this little baby, he has made their house a home filled their lives with an enormous amount of love, happiness and gratitude. 

I first met Rachel and Ben at their Maternity session a few months back, I can still feel the love and connection that these two share. I was so excited to hear that Rachel had given birth to a beautiful and healthy baby boy a few weeks later and I couldn't wait to meet him. 

This little guy has been here before, I know people say that alot but there was something about his face, his eyes and the feeling he injected into his surroundings that made me feel like he was an "old sole" so they say. He certainly has captured the love of his mumma and pappa. 

Thank you Rachel and Ben for allowing me to capture this very special time in your journey. I hope that your journey continues on this fabutlously happy path and I get to capture more chapters for you. 

If you would like to know more about my maternity and newborn packages, I would love to hear from you.

Fleur - Wollongong Family Photographer

The days can be long but the years are short. I first photographed Fleur at her newborn session earlier this year and I cannot believe she is 7 months old already. Where does the time go? 

I was excited to capture some beautiful images of Fluer and her mum Sam in their home, just doing what they do. As a mum, I think we get so caught up in day to day life that we forget to see the beauty that exists in each day. That is what I want these "Mummy + Me" sessions to capture. 
Here is what Sam had to say about her gallery. 
"OMG JADE!!!! I am crying, my heart is melting, LOVE LOVE LOVE" 

YOu can see Fleurs Newborn session here. here

Betty 6 Months - Wollongong and Southern Highlands Family Photographer

I am truly blessed to have a business and job that I love so much, brings joy and happiness to others and the gives families precious, tangible memories of their family story. 

This gorgeous little family I have been capturing memories for since their eldest daughter Airlie was a baby. I love that I have get to watch Airlie grow, their family grow and now Betty grow. Ally booked a "My First Year" Package for Betty so that we can capture her at newborn, 6 months and 12 months. I love seeing how much babies change in that first year and seeing their personalities really start shinning through. 

Take a look at Betty's 6 month session below, she is full of cuteness! You can see Betty's newborn session here and Ally's Maternity Session here

Canberra Adventure - Wollongong Family Photographer

In the April school holidays, we decided to go on an adventure to Canberra to celebrate a successful 1st term of kindergarten and have some quality family time.

We booked our hotel, jumped in the car and started our adventure. We arrived at the hotel and order pizza in for dinner, chilled on the bed and watched movies. The following morning the girls woke excited to go on an adventure and explore. We headed to Manuka Village and found Urban Panty where we enjoyed a delicious breakfast. 

We then headed to Questacon, as you can see the girls were pretty excited. This was our first visit to Questacon, we had become members at Wollongong Science Centre and Planetarium which gave us entry into Questacon (and also something to do in the next school holidays). We thought we would be here a couple of hours, well, weren't we wrong. We ended up staying most of the day. It is so interactive for all ages and the girls really loved exploring the different exhibits. 

After Questacon, we went for a drive and explored the areas around the lake (the girls slept the whole time). We ended up driving to the National Arboretum, Canberra where we were told about an awesome park, and yep! it's awesome. The Pod park is like nothing I have seen before, the girls ran off without hesitation to go and explore. This park is a MUST if you are ever in Canberra. 

Day 3 was all about finding cool parks to play at. We headed over to Boundless Playground, we had a scooter ride along the lake and over to National Carillon where we listened to the beautiful chimes. We explored the parklands and playground but the girls just kept asking for one thing, "Can we go back to the Acorn park (Pod Park)?" How could we say no. So off we went before we headed home. This little getaway was just what the family needed, some time together, just chilling and exploring, refreshing ourselves and creating awesome memories. For those heading to Canberra anytime soon. I highly recommend Questacon and The Pod Park.
