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.

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

Sibling fun - Southern Highlands Family Photographer

They fight, they squabble, they laugh, they love, they are siblings. 
 

Justine contacted me to capture these two gorgeous kiddos playing and having fun together, as brother and sisters do (when they are not fighting). One day they will be older and arguing over who's turn it is to empty the dishwasher, cook dinner or take the car. We headed to their family property on the outskirts of Mittagong, NSW where they will one day soon build their dream home. I loved that they chose here for their family session, as it will always hold a special place in the family and it shows what their property looked like before the brick and mortar. I believe in creating a space for little ones to be their cheeky selves, where they can be silly, have fun and well, be kids. This is what documenting childhood is all about, capturing them, being them, being kids. 

I believe all families should have tangible memories printed and filling photo albums and walls. If you believe this to, I would love to chat to you more about how we can make that happen. Get in touch 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. 

If you would like to have your family or newborn memories captured through natural and relaxed photography, I would love to chat with you, you can contact me here
 

Thanks for stopping by. 
Kindly
Jade.

The "B" Family - Wollongong Family Photographer

What can I say, I am one incredibly lucky person to be able to have a job that I absolutely love and be a newborn and family and photographer that my clients continue to return to. These guys I now am proud to call my friends.

I have watched their first born Airlie grow and become a big sister, I have captured Ally's pregnancy with Betty, her newborn and 6 month photos and now her 1 year images, plus a couple of extended family sessions. To be honest, words cannot describe what this type of loyalty means to me and I am SO thankful for it and even more thankful that I get to make amazing friendships with my clients. 

The Bates family are so easy going and relaxed and we always have loads of laughs when we are together. We once again headed to "The Farm" at Killalea State Park, which is where they love to spend their time. We played, danced, sang, picked flowers and tickled our way through the late afternoon. When Airlie was a baby, we captured an image with them on the tailgate for the car they purchased on their honeymoon in Queensland and restored. At this session, we updated that image to include Betty. 

Thank you to the Bates family for allowing me to once again capture your gorgeous family. I am so thankful to call you my friends.
