Family of Four in the Park

One of the things I love most about being a photographer is seeing my clients family grow.  I love meeting the little babies I photograph grow up to be gorgous toddlers, inquisitive children and amazing teenagers.  I love meeting their siblings and capturing some images of their growing family, frozen in time, just for this moment.  Thank you to this wonderful family for inviting me to capture some moments for you again.  It was such a pleasure!

A New Addition ~ Baby Isabelle {Newborn Lifestyle Photographer}

This beautiful little girl decided she wanted to come into the world a little earlier than expected at 37 weeks but why wouldn’t you when you had this amazing family waiting to welcome you.

I first met Kylie and Luke when they welcomed little Chloe into the world almost 2 years before to the day and Chloe is the most doting and adorable big sister I think I’ve ever seen. I hope you enjoy your little sneak peek to your images.wSMP_2528wSMP_2426SMP_2427wSMP_2441wSMP_2461wSMP_2414wSMP_2481wSMP_2494wSMP_2510wSMP_2530SMP_2703wSMP_2543SMP_2974-2SMP_3009SMP_3112SMP_3139-2wSMP_2586wSMP_2589-2wSMP_2670wSMP_2759wSMP_2804wSMP_2857wSMP_2868wSMP_2787-2wSMP_2785-2

Aleisha and Tim’s Simply Beautiful Yabbaloumba Retreat Wedding

This lovely couple chose one of the most STUNNING locations in South East QLD to celebrate their wedding.  If you’ve never heard of Yabblaoumba Retreat before I highly recommend you check it out.

It was an absolutely gorgeous September day in the Mary River Valley and Aleisha and Tim created the most beautiful sanctuary down by the river.  The wedding was officiated by the groom’s brother as celebrant as family and friends gathered in the shady glen to witness the two take their vows.

The bridal party then set off in a 4WD to capture some images with this most beautiful background before coming back to join their reception complete with lawn games and a bonfire.

Waiting on Baby {Petrie Maternity Photographer}

It’s hard to believe that only a few years ago I was asking people to volunteer to be my guinea pigs as I prepared a portfolio to move into the professional photography circle.  This lovely couple were one of those volunteers when they were pregnant with this hansom young who is about to become a big brother!  I hope you enjoy your photos and congratulations on your baby girl!

Katrina and Sean {Stunning Caboolture Historical Village Wedding}

I am blessed to be able to call this lovely couple not only friends but family and it was an absolute joy to be able to photograph their stunning wedding at the Caboolture Historical Village.  They have been so very very patient, waiting for their photos in this very busy year.  I hope you enjoy your blog post.

Certainly one of my firsts as a photographer was the bride making a pit stop for petrol and Sushi Train on the way to the ceremony.

Erin and Paul’s Beautiful Dayboro Wedding

This year has been an exciting one in terms of weddings!  But there has been one wedding I have been waiting for and that is this one.  I felt so priviledged to be invited to photograph this special couple’s wedding as I have known the bride since I was 10 and she was 5!  Her sister is one of my best friends and I have watched her grown into an amazing young woman and meet this fabulous man who were now getting married!

 

The wedding was taking place in a tiny little Catholic Church in Dayboro, St Francis Xavier Church, a beautiful country church in the Petrie Parish.

Quite possibly the most excited groom ever!

Then we were off to the always stunning Glengariff Estate for a stunning reception complete with oversized games on the lawn and the most beautiful armchairs to welcome this fabulously unique and happy couple.  Although we only had 45 minutes we raced around those grounds and captured some beautiful images – it was lucky the bride and bridesmaids were all wearing their running shoes.

But after the cake and the dancing there was still one more surprise from this awesome couple.  After the birde had thrown her bouquet, rather than the traditional garter tossing, instead the bride was treated to a mariachi style serenade by her husband and the groomsmen.

Congratulations to Erin and Paul!  Wishing you every happiness in your long future together!

Kelsie and Calvin’s Lovely Petrie Wedding

 

It was a beautiful day in the northern suburbs of Brisbane when I arrived at a lovely little house in Bray Park with a stunning white Cadillac out the front.  Inside the bride and her bridesmaids were all ready to go, with just a few finishing touches to add.

 

There was a lovely moment when the groomsmen showed up to drop off the bouquets and the blushing bride hid inside while also peering out to see her groom.

Calvin and Kelsie met at high school but it wasn’t until they met later on at a youth group that they started seeing each other – and so began a beautiful love story.
