Beach Baby {Bribie Maternity Session}

I was just doing up some prints for this family when I realised I hadn’t blogged their maternity session! Posting these photos tonight while I’m rugged up in my doona, it’s hard to believe how terribly hot and muggy it was on this day and this family were absolute rock stars!

I first met Matt and Roanne a few years ago when their little girl was a beautiful baby bump.  Then last year I was so blessed to be invited to photograph their stunning wedding and now here they are about to welcome another little person into the world!


Mel and Bec’s Beautiful Maternity Session (and some surprise legal document signing) {Brisbane Maternity (and wedding) Photographer}

Quite possibly my longest title ever – but if ever there was a session deserving of a magnificantly long title – this is it!

I was overjoyed when I heard from Bec and Mel that they were expecting a little baby.  I was even more excited when Mel said she wanted to do a milk bath as part of her maternity session.


Mel and Bec decided to have their session the same day as their baby shower which was wonderful because I could photograph all of the special little details of their baby shower as well!

The day was absolutely stunning as I (eventually) found the hidden little property at Mount Samson where the shower was being held.

After spending some time soaking in the milk bath – including a little visit from one of the resident baby goats, we headed outside.  I’d just like to point out here that Bec and Mel are quite possible the most lucky weather clients I have ever had.




Just as we made it out to the little lake the clouds let the sun peek through in the most beautiful way – just like it did 2 years ago at their wedding…. Speaking of which….

After our little stroll and as the Baby Shower was about to begin Mel let me know she had a little surprise planned for Bec.  She had the celebrant who had officiated at their wedding arriving so they could sign their legal wedding documents after the law change here in the land of Oz last year!  I was so excited I couldn’t leave until I’d captured a few images of this special occassion.  Wow!  What a day!


Wishing you all the best with the birth of your baby – can anyone guess if it’s a boy or a girl.. there are some hints in the photos!


Donna and Tino’s Stunning City Wedding



It was an absolutely stunning afternoon as we gathered at St Mary’s Church at Kangaroo Point to watch this beautiful family become one.  As the bride and groom exchanged vows and the sun set over the Brisbane River we moved over to Victoria Point Golf Course for an amazing reception with the most gorgeous little touches. Congratulations to Donna and Tino and your family.  I hope you enjoy this little sneak peek of your wedding day.








Family at the beach {Wynnum Family Photographer}

I met this family when there was just three of them.  Our maternity session was on a steaming hot day with a massive storm brewing which broke just as we finished up.  For their family session we held out for that perfect day so this gorgeous family could enjoy the afternoon glow as they frolicked on the beach. Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to capture your growing family.


Celebrating 50 Years as Family

Quite a few weeks ago now I had the utmost pleasure to drive to the Sunshine Coast and capture some images of this wonderful couple who were celebrating 50 years of marriage with their family. Even more special is the fact that I get to call these lovely people family – my Uncle and Aunty, cousins and second cousins.

It was a beautiful afternoon – although a little on the windy side, such a wonderful occassion to come together to celebrate.


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!

After some pictures in the park we headed out to this lovely little pier.



And then on to the reception with some beautiful speeches and a lovely waltz.




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

R & P’s Enchanting Backyard Wedding

wSMP_1972There are so many words I could use to describe this stunning wedding with it’s rustic, yet glamorous touches.  A beautiful marque filled with family and friends, a glorious sunny afternoon and all captured in this beautiful family’s ‘backyard’ – perhaps homestead would be a better term. But enough with the words… I’ll let the pictures tell their story.  Rachael and Philip, I hope you enjoy this little blog post and wishing you every happiness for the future.
