Wilder - Southern Highlands Newborn Photographer

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

“Jade,

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.

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
Warmly

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.

Kindly
