maggie and patrick

Getting shots of young siblings together is the hardest job. I love this shot ( the one at the top ) of the two of them together, its not the most fantastic shot in the world, but I know how hard we worked to get it! And the one below is just real life, isnt it? I love his little pouty face.

angus { seven days old }

Seven days new, such a new life. So much sweetness wrapped up into one little bundle. It took us ages to get him to sleep, but when he dozed off we got some super cute shots.

These boys have a special place in my heart, because Bayley was one of the first babies I ever photographer. Ever. So he's pretty special to me, and then I got to take photos of Xavier and now little Angus. I am so spoilt! I have really enjoyed watching them grow up. But they grow up so quick!

display ideas { multiple images }

This image if from an article on swedish design, on the Decor8 blog which can be found here. I love the blue and white colour scheme, which would be right at home on the Australian coast. And of course the multiple image display above the lounge is just yummy.

{ Design note : notice how the outside edge of the image display makes it all into one large rectangle? }

ryder { six months old }

Ryder had the cutest little smiles.

sophia's baptism

billy { six months old }

I first met Billy when he was just a little bump in his mummy's tummy. So i guess this was his third visit to the studio for some photo lovin'. And snuggles from me. He was so sweet and smiley. My heart was a big puddle of mush by the end of the shoot.

sadie + ava { two gorgeous girls }

I am completely and utterly in love with these images.
They make me happy. A happy photographer.

lucy { one year old }

I cant believe how quick they grow and change in the first year. It seems like just last month I was doing her baby shoot, and now she is walking around and eating cupcakes. One year old already. Sigh... another of my litte babies, growing up.

( And hugs to the fabulous Cindy for finding and delivering the suitcase in the above photos! She saw it and thought it would go great in my studio so grabbed it for me. She is a rock star! )

sylvia + chris { the country session }

This is the second installment in Sylvia and Chris's engagement shoot. We went for a drive out of town and had a stroll around to get some great shots. These two are so sweet with each other.

charlotte { ten months old }

Charlotte's family has moved a long ways away, but they had to travel back for a wedding. On the way they swung by the studio so i could get some shots of Charlotte, as her big brother did when he was the same age. She looked like a princess in a pettiskirt, and thoroughly enjoyed attacking a mud cake. Although her big brother did help her out with that. Just a little bit.

sylvia + chris { engagement shoot }

Mellow yellow?

I love shooting engagement sessions. They are like play time for me. No schedules, no shoot list, just a couple in love and a wide choice of locations. We started off with some urban backdrops, and then went out of town for come country style to finish off, but I am going to give those images their own blog post.

Sylvia and Chris are getting married in Albury in January, and I cant wait to shoot their wedding. They have already said they dont want to use the 'traditional' locations, so i jumping and up and down with excitement to see what they come up with.
