Watching families gather their loved ones together is one of the joys of my job. On this day, Braxton’s family were gathered to celebrate his baptism.

Although Braxton wasn’t too sure about his outfit, he is clearly blessed with a loving, adoring family. Here is the story of Braxton’s baptism ceremony. May he be blessed with love, joy & happiness throughout his years.

Did I mention I photographed a wedding recently? What could be more magical than photographing two people in love?

Everyone at Ian & Suzie’s wedding was smiling. You rarely see so much joy in one place.
And what’s not to smile about. Blue Mountains. Old Country House. Garden party. Bow ties. Fancy gowns. 1940’s music. Candy. Champagne. A scavenger hunt to the tune ‘Run Rabbit Run‘. And surprise! Ian & Suzie are getting married.

Exquisite.

On a bright & sunny Saturday a few of weeks ago I met up with Jess & Michael for a photography session. Jess had hesitated when she asked if we could include Jonah, her loveable dog, in the session.

She needn’t have worried. I more than anyone know how pets often become as close to us as any other member of the family. My little puppy Elsie at 10 weeks old is currently curled up near my feet. I wouldn’t have it any other way.*

Jonah, like any toddler I’ve tried to photograph, had his own ideas about how the session was going to run. I knew that being so close to the river may be too tempting for him but he managed to stay dry for a little while…

* It’s a bit like babies – when they’re sleeping they’re no trouble at all. 10 week old puppies tend to chew everything when they’re awake!

There’s something about visiting a family for the second time; walking into a familiar house & the joy they have recently come to know, having seen the anticipation only weeks before.

Phoebe was so excited to show off her little brother Chase. She was only occasionally distracted by a Barbie movie on television. I’m pretty certain that she didn’t quite understand what all the fuss was about. After all, he’s just a baby. He doesn’t do much!

Again throughout this session, Phoebe rarely sat still. You can see evidence of this from the variety of fabulous facial expressions as her hair flew from side to side & across her face. A little bubbling bundle of joy.

And then there was Chase. The polar opposite. Settled. Peaceful. Quiet. A little hungry maybe but quiet. Loved. The perfect little addition to an already loving little family. Now a family of four.

He is truly devine. Welcome to the world little Chase. xo

Sometimes mum & dad take a back seat & the kids get their own quick little mini photography session. Jack & Ellie in the afternoon…

Embarking on a new adventure…

Walking-6Nov-1

Here I go. Into the unknown. Doing what I love. Pursuing a dream. Pushing myself. Learning new things.

And it’s all good.
