There's nothing like having a photo of your family hanging in your home, or even just knowing that there is an image safely stored in an album or a bedside frame recording what your family is like now. This daughter knew how much her mother would value a photo of her family and surprised her with an extended family portrait to celebrate a birthday.
It was a glorious morning with everyone relaxed as the kids played at the park and when we later pottered in the bush. Cousins playing together, aunties and uncles with Oma and Opa just enjoying being together.
Oma now has a beautiful collection of natural photos of her family, enjoying being with her and one another. That is a priceless gift!
Little P is a long waited for little fighter! She lives with her beautiful parents and her four legged sister, Rosie, in the city and it's easy to see why she is so adored. Despite being ready for bed, she was happy to go with the flow, playing on the floor, kicking back with some milk and a snooze in daddy's arms during our session. It was so lovely photographing this family in their home, where everyone is relaxed and comfortable. I think that it is so precious to have photos taken in your home and to look back in the years ahead to see what has changed and what stays the same.
Is there anything better than getting out of town on a hot, Spring day than spending some time in the country for a simple picnic with those you love? I don't think so. Here are my little loves just the other day, enjoying the sunshine and a field of grass almost as tall as them! These were taken just down the road from where my husband and I were married a little over 6 years ago. I think that photos like these will make me a little homesick for 'life right now' in the future. xx
In a family of boys it was a surprise to find upon her arrival that baby number 4 was indeed a pink one! There is nothing like meeting a new baby, and little Mia was long waited for. She has a mum, dad, three big brothers and an extended family who were so excited to meet her. And her house is undergoing a change with butterflies and princesses adorning the walls for the first time!
It was a privilege to be there just hours after her birth when her brothers arrived to met her for the first time. Mia is well protected with her three bodyguards on the look out. Welcome little girl!
What a delight it was to photograph Jensen, Eve and their parents in their beautiful home. At just 4 weeks old, Eve was happiest snuggled up to mum for a snooze or a feed and Jensen blew me away with his killer dimples! Such a cutie! Watching siblings together in those early days is so special to see.
