Baby "W" - Wollongong Newborn Photographer

Meet Baby Wesley who is 3 weeks old. Alison and Xavier welcomed me into their home to photograph their precious new bundle of joy Wesley and their new family.

 When I arrived, Wesley was feeding and Alison just glowing with love and pride as she provided for her little boy. We sat and chatted about our lives getting to know each other while I captured some little moments of everyday life. 

Wesley has the most GORGEOUS Just want to squeeze cheeks I have ever seen. He loved been cuddled but not really kissed and just wanted to snuggle up with mum and dad and sleep. We also couldn't forget about capturing their fur baby and getting an all new family photo. I also love it when families include/have things in their session that have sentimental value. Wesley's stunning wicker bassinet was his father's and also his grandmother's bassinet! How special to be sleeping in the same bassinet your father and grandmother slept in as babies. 

Thank you Alison, Xavier and Wesley for welcoming me into your beautiful home and sharing this story with me.

If you would like me to tell a part of your story, please get in touch here, I would love to chat with you.

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.

The 'F' Family - Wollongong and Southern Highlands Family Photographer

No matter where your family are in the world, they will always be family and it is important to capture moments together. 

That is exactly what the 'F' family did when their parents visited Wollongong for Christmas all the way from the UK. 

When Anna contacted me about capturing some speical moments for them while her parents in law were here from the UK I was super excited, even more so when they wanted to include their puppy in the session. Choosing a location was easy and I learnt why at our session. Anna requested Fisherman's Beach at Port Kembla, a secluded little cove just below Hill 60. I grew up in Wollongong and never knew it existed! At the session they explained the importance of this beach, when they were first in Australia looking for their new home, her husband and father in law discovered this little gem of a spot and did some fishing here, that was 4 years go and the last time they were together in Australia. 

We had loads of fun playing, running around, climbing the sand bank and sharing memories. I loved that I was able to capture some beautiful loving moments of Mark and his parents together, the emotion and love that was showing was moving. 

Thank you for allowing my to capture some very precious memories for you all.

If you would like family images that are full of love, fun and laughs then I would love to chat with you, you can contact me here

The 'J' Family - Wollongong and Southern Highlands Family Photographer

On a hot summers day in Wollongong, just before Christmas, I met up with the 'J' family at Port Kembla Beach. 

It was a bit earlier in the day than what I normal shoot but that didn't stop us from having fun.
We played, ran around, ate sand, laughed and chatted about life. It turned out that their daughter was my daughter's buddy at school. Thank you for allowing me to capture your beautiful family.

The 'C' Family - South Coast Family Photographer

As a family photographer here in Wollongong I love capturing families over a year and seeing how much their little ones have grown. 

I first met Reece and Sam at their maternity session. Sam and I instantly hit it off, she is one of the most honest, kind, funny and real women I know. Sam is the kind of person who tells it how it is, yep everything how it is and if you follow her on instagram @shesthefunmum you will know exactly what I mean. Since then I have been blessed to photographer Fluer and her parents (and big fur brother Angus) through her first year. One thing I have learnt is that Fluer is a mummy's girl and no one (not even Dad) is allowed near her mumma bear, you will see what I mean below. 

Thank you guys for allowing me to be your family photographer, it fills my heart that I get to watch your family grow and go through each chapter. 

If you would like to know more about my fun and relaxed family sessions you can chat to me through here

The 'W' Family - Southern Sydney Family Photographer

It doesn't matter where is the world you are, family is always family, and when the time comes that you are all in the same country at the same time, it is like you have never been apart. 

The 'W' family contacted me to capture the real moments of their family coming together to celebrate a family occasion. The brief was to capture life as it was, kids as they were and the family just been together. They were staying a beautiful holiday home in Bundeena, in the Royal National Park Sydney. We headed across to the local park to have a play and some fun, and boy did everyone have fun playing together. I am able to share just a few images of this fun filled afternoon of family fun. 

If you are wanting to capture your loved ones just hanging out and playing I would love to hear from you. You can contact me via the Let's Chat page. 

Warmly
