LOVE LIVES HERE
This family session is very close to my heart. Tahnee is one of the most inspiring, encouraging, creative women I know.  When I met her online, through blogging a few years ago, I felt instantly connected to her.  I'm now incredibly blessed to call her one of the dearest people to me, and just as lucky to now live even closer to her.  So close we can catch up for sneaky breakfast dates in some of the most beautiful spots on the regular! Tahnee is an incredible artist.  Her work at Lemonade Lane is filled with passion, heart and creativity.  Her home is no different.  Every time I'm around her, in her home or witnessing her work, its lik ...

HELLO LITTLE HENRY
The last time I had seen Sarah and Perry they were well into their third trimester of pregnancy, getting ready to bunker down for the slowness that newborn babies bring. The slowness hit just as the year tends to ramp up for Christmas.  It was a wonderfully calm ambiance when I entered their home for the second time to meet Henry.  After what was deemed a not so great night (newborns have a tendency to do things like that when you have plans the next day), I could tell that this wee family was blanketed in love and well into finding their groove. This is the story of their first few days with little Henry, along with a little before and aft ...

SARAH + PERRY
Sarah's beautiful smile and gorgeous smiling eyes could light up any room, and she's one of those gorgeous women with whom I had an instant connection. I got to hang out with Sarah and Perry on a very beautiful Spring afternoon.  Melbourne treated us that day, as we took a walk with Molly, their beaglier, along their local dog beach.  Pregnancy can be hard on a woman's body, but you wouldn't know it with Sarah, she carried with beauty and so much grace. Sarah and Pez, I can't wait to meet you little baby boy!

THE ENGLISH FAMILY
Terri is a woman after my own heart. A fellow creative, she knows the importance of existing in pictures for her family.  She gets that these moments are fleeting and babies are only so tiny for such a small time.  Too often we think that everything has to be "perfect" in order for it to be documented.  Little do we know that, as it is right now, everything is just as it should be. Mid renovations didn't stop Terri from wanting these moments documented.  Little baby Mack and his spunky big sister would grow and mould all too soon, and these moments would soon be a distant memory. It was a dreary old Gippsland day when I arrived at Te ...

HELLO LITTLE LENNY
I've been sitting on this session for a while, but i can't hide it any longer, as I love it so much. It was a grey, misty old spring evening when I drove through the Gippsland hills to visit this sweet family in their beautiful rural surroundings. Lenny, at only a few weeks old, was one of the most handsome wee boys I had ever seen. I really love documenting these first precious weeks for a family.  Being present with them as they find their feet and not only get to know their little one, but also a whole new side of themselves and each other.  These stories are so emotional and special, but all too quickly forgotten, and being able to doc ...

AL + ED
I've been so pumped to share Al and Ed's wedding. Al and Ed chose to be married at a family property in Lorne.  A few days before the wedding, on Christmas Day, Lorne was evacuated due to bush fires that were raging through the area.  There was a collective sigh of relief when the CFA gave the all clear the following day. Al and Ed's day was filled with creativity, beauty and theatre.  A day that celebrated not only the love that the two of them have for each other, but also the love and support that circles them from family and friends. Their story begins with vege juice, eggs and dance rehearsals, continues with bush walks, local kids sl ...

SERRIN + DAVE
On a beautiful Summer day in December, on the beautiful South Gippsland beach of Cape Paterson, two best friends were married. When I first met Dave and Serrin, and even more so after spending their wedding day with them, I felt like I had known Dave and Serrin for years.  More than anything, I love the story around a couple.  Who they are, how they met, and why they chose where they wanted to be married.  Dave and Serrin's story was equally humbling and humorous. Cape Paterson will always be more than just a special place to Serrin and Dave, a place of memories, love and loss.  As a mist rolled in right as the ceremony started and rolled o ...

JEN + BRENTON
Jen and Brenton's day was a day filled with SO much beauty. It was a true delight to all of the senses.  From the stunning One Day Bridal gown, to the incredibly scented bouquets, to the jostle of the quickest filled dance floor I've ever seen.  All of the senses were satisfied and I had so much fun capturing it. And, of course, the day was also filled with love, and so much of it.  There has to be a ton of love, when a newly wedded bride gifts her husband with the promise of any possible offspring being a supporter of his beloved footy team! Thanks for having me guys, it was an honour to capture these moments. This is the story of Jen an ...

CAROLINE + ANTONY
It takes a special man to play the guitar and sing to his bride-to-be, as she is walked down the aisle by her parents. Antony was that special man. These two beautiful, caring souls were married amidst a multitude of embraces and plenty of laughs and love. Congratulations Caroline and Antony!  Thanks for having me to document these special moments of your day.

A MORNING WITH ESSIE & LOLLY
Working with families, in their own environment, doing their own thing, is one of the best things I've ever done.  It's pretty freakin' special when there are people in that family who have touched my heart. I always come away from family sessions thinking, "Man that family was rad!"  This family is no exception.  I mean, how cool is the nickname Lolly for your little sister.  Only a big sister/Little Mama Bear can come up with terms of endearments like these. I think, as parents, we often get bogged down with "stuff" that we forget just how rad our own families are.  I feel lucky to have these little reminders often. This is the sto ...

THEY ARE SUPER HEROES
Knocking on a the front door of a home at around 8am for a family session gets me excited. I know what I'm going to be walking in to is something real.  There is going to be messy hair, cuddles in bed, bodies strewn on couches, mouths being fed, noise and life.  These are the moments I love to document, and being trusted to do it for another photographer is something pretty special. This is a family of super heroes.  Embracing everything that is family life at this stage, and running with it with laughs and licks, hand holding and cuddles. This is their Saturday morning story. You can see their family film here. ...

PLUS BABY MAKES FOUR
Those precious hours after baby is born, also known as The Fresh 48,  are some of the most humbling hours spent as a family.   I always feel so privileged to be asked to document such a time. I love to photograph these sessions, there is a whole lot of newness and the moments are filled with ALL of the feels.  My favourite way to capture these moments are with a mix of both moving and still images, packaged all together in a film to be savoured for the family memory banks. I was so happy to finally meet this Mumma and her little troop, and it was so beautiful to watch as big brother slowly started to warm to “Baby Sister”. This is the ...

MEAGHAN + GLEN
These two! When a man asks his love to be his wife, after climbing a mountain in the freezing cold before the sun has risen, you know that they will be set for a life full of adventure together. A life full of hunting out new weekend brunch spots, a life full of chocolate milkshakes and fur babies named after childhood TV stars. I had so much fun roaming the laneways with Meaghan and Glen.  I can't wait to see them be married in a few months time.
