A new chapter - Wollongong Newborn Photographer

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.

Laura, Chad and Baby Macie - Wollongong Newborn Photographer

When two become three….

Meet Macie, sweet baby girl to this amazing duo, Laura and Chad who you may remember from their maternity session, which you can see here. It was a dark and really overcast Autumn morning in Wollongong when I arrived at their home for their newborn session. I was greeted with big smiles and a home full of love and warmth. The joy of being parents and introducing me to their little girl was beaming from them. They say pregnant woman have a glow, well, I think new mums have an even more special glow.

Marcie was the sweetest little babe, she was so alert and interested in the world around her. It was so beautiful watching all the tender moments between them all. It truly is such an honour to be able to capture these moments for families. The moments that we often don’t see ourselves or remember.

Here is the response from Laura after viewing their gallery.
”Wow! Thank you so much for all the beautiful photos! We are soo happy with how they turned out. So many precious photos to look back on and beautiful memories!”

Thank you Laura + Chad for welcoming me into your lives, opening up and sharing a little bit of you all with me. This chapter of your story is so special and it was an absolute pleasure to be able to document it for you.

If you would like to capture moments like these, I would love to chat to you more.

The "F" Family - Wollongong Family Photographer

It has taken me a while to blog this session (hands up who else is really slack with blogging) but, this gorgeous family was the winner of a competition I ran in the second half of the last year. At some points we both thought this session was never going to happen, after been rained out about 5 times. Mother nature made up for it though when we finally got to the session as the weather was PERFECT and the sunset was spectacular. We had the best evening running around the beach playing and capture moments of fun and joy. I really loved getting to know them all and capturing some special images for them that are priceless.

Thank you Sonia and family for your support and allowing me to capture your gorgeous family.

Rogers Maternity - Shellharbour Maternity and Newborn Photographer

When Elise and Matt first contacted me to capture their maternity and newborn photos, I instantly knew it was going to be fun. 

Elise and Matt decided on Killalea State Park or as us locals know it "The Farm" at Shellharbour for their session. They often enjoy picnic lunch and dinner dates here and felt it was apart of who they are as a couple and now a family.  I loved hearing how they met, about their first, second and third dates and who they would be if they were super heroes. We also had some laughs with some of the answers! 


Thank you Elise and Matt for a fun afternoon, stay tuned for their newborn images! Special thanks to Paris and Al for the referral, I seriously appreciate the support.

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 M - Wollongong Newborn Photographer

Newborn sessions capture those life changing chapters in a family's story. If you think about it, our lives are story books, with each moment or adventure adding a chapter and those everyday mundane moments are the beautifully written paragraphs in those chapters. 

In home newborn sessions create a chapter through images, they capture the home where you first bought your child home to, the place where many first happen, the place where you bond and will watch them grow. It is the place you will never forget and will always be connected to because of what small moments happen there. Having your newborn images in your homes creates a tangible memory of these moments, one day that might be all that is left. 

Relaxed, love filling newborn images that are real are what I strive to give families for their stories.  Contact me here if you would like to chat about how I can create images like this for you.
