The sweetest little family of four about to become a family of five. We spent the morning in the park for a family lifestyle session capturing the cutest grins and watching kids be kids. Thank you for letting me capture some special moments for you Renae & Michael. Wishing you all the best for the arrival of your next bundle of joy very soon. xo Read More
As the sun was setting on a late Friday afternoon, the kids took me down the back of their property to take some photographs especially for their dad for Father’s Day wearing Dad’s business shirts. The golden light was peeking through the trees & we walked, trying helplessly to avoid the Farmer’s ‘Friends’. It was little Emma’s first birthday only a couple of weeks ago & she was walking – just. It was just beautiful to watch the bond between her & her siblings – especially her eldest sister.
Their dad popped home unexpectedly & caught us in action – Dad’s can be a little unpredictable like that! Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s here in Australia for this weekend. I hope you have a wonderful day with your families.
What a fabulous idea for a gift. These guys asked me to help them give their grandmother a gift for her birthday. It was a big birthday. One of those birthdays that grandmothers usually want to overlook but one that the rest of the family want to celebrate. So when I was asked to take some photographs of all the grandkids – cousins, I was thrilled to help out.
So the idea was to get some group shots and some natural group shots too. Ages ranged from 20+ to almost one. As you know those little ones can be elusive but this group of young people were fabulous. Check them out – like a photo shoot for a TV show – you know like Beverly Hills 90210. Not that they were born then. (Yikes I’m old.)
It’s such an amazing privilege to be invited back into a family’s home & to celebrate special occasions with them. I photographed Chase at 4 weeks here and again with his grandmother & his big sister when he was a couple of months old.
Just over a week ago, Chase was baptised in a ceremony with close family & friends. May his life be blessed. Wishing this little cutie every kindness & happiness the world can bring. Thank you for allowing me to take part in such a special occasion for you & your family. K x
Sometimes when I visit homes to take photographs of kids they are in one of those moods. You know, where they are bouncing off the walls & don’t want to sit still. Sometimes this can be fantastic for natural photography but when your eldest doesn’t want to hold the ‘baby’, it can be treacherous. Add to that one very tired little 4 week old & you can imagine that this session didn’t go as smoothly as planned. But that’s okay because we still got some beautiful (natural) photographs.
Here are some photographs of two little boys & a mumma who has her hands full!
* Here is an example of a Story Telling Session. A session with a beautiful, loving family when I first started photographing people other than my own precious loves.
As soon as I arrived at the location for our photo shoot, I could tell we were going to have an adventure. Three year old Christopher was already exploring his surroundings but he stopped ever so politely to say hello.
Little Christopher was excited to be there. I’m not sure we were excited for the same reasons. His was childhood curiousity. Mine – photographing a loving family of four.
While he collected sticks and explored, I spoke with Katia and her husband. I learnt that here, before they had children, Abey fell in love with Katia. What a perfect location then to photograph them now with their two amazingly cute little boys.
A warm loving family. Katia and her boys. Thank you for letting me take a peek into your lives; to tell the story of afternoons you have spent here together past, present & future. K x
For your own storytelling session, contact me. You can find more information here.
Photographing special occasions is a beautiful experience. I love the sense of ceremony, ritual & tradition. At special occasions people are happy. They are joyful. They are present in that moment not distracted by the everyday.
Evie’s baptism was a small family affair. An intimate ceremony. Evie was showered with love & hope for the future.
Wishing you every happiness in the world little Evie. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this special day. xo
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.
Thank you to Franny & Matko for letting me capture such wonderful moments. K x
