Mia – 9 June 2020

Welcome to the world Mia! This little girl arrived into the world as the first stage of Covid-19 restrictions saw our country go into lockdown for 6 weeks. Unfortunately we had to delay her newborn session. Newborns are normally photographed ideally up to 2-3 weeks of age maximum. Even at 10 weeks of age this little lady was just like a newborn. She was so good during her session, it was nice to get some asleep and awake photos, not to mention gorgeous little smiles!

I had the pleasure of photographing her big brother when he was born. It’s so nice having families come back for baby number two. Congrats to Steph, Marty & big brother Zac on the arrival of your little girl….. and back into ISO 2.0 we go!

Sometimes capturing a sibling photograph can be challenging for 2-3 year olds. As a photographer I always have some tricks up my sleeve. Sometimes you don’t need lots of the same photo, all you need is one to cherished forever.

Her big brother has the most amazing blue eyes I think I’ve come across.

Plenty of smiles for her mum and certainly content with dad.

In Mia’s session the colour palette included hint of rustic and warm tones. From dark grey with a mulberry wrap to this set up with her cute little head with dried flowers.

It’s a girl!

I don’t think I’ve every met such a lovely couple that were soooo excited to have their photoshoot! From the moment I first talked to Irene it was so clear she knew exactly what she wanted from her maternity photography session. Most importantly it was a special gender reveal as well!

Irene had seen some images online with balloons and canons that shoot pink or blue dust so we added all those elements in. It was so much fun.

As we’ve been in lockdown the last few months Irene and Eugene have kept their pregnancy on the down low. I asked Irene last week, “how did you go with your pregnancy/gender announcement?” she replied, “Everyone was so happy with our announcement and reveal. My phone didn’t stop ringing last night. There were lots of tears of joy shed and they love the photos”!

I can’t wait to meet this little girl when she makes her entrance into the world in August. One thing is for sure, she is already one very loved little girl.

Thank you Irene and Eugene for making my job so easy!

Baby Jack

Back in March 2020 I had an enquiry from a lovely lady interested in a newborn session. However the excitement was short lived, the Corona Virus had reared its ugly head. Into lockdown we went. It wasn’t a great week contacting all my clients to postpone their photography sessions but that’s just what had to happen.

Fast forward 3 months and the first step of restrictions were finally lifted! This meant I could resume photography sessions again. Lucky for us little Jack had just arrived into the world a week earlier. Yes, we could go ahead with his newborn session at the studio!

It was lovely working with Janine and Matt during the session, and all his photos have come together so nicely. Especially his crocheted blanket from Nanna!

Congratulations on the arrival of your gorgeous little boy, you make a beautiful little family of three!

Mother’s Day 2020

Mother’s Day this year is going to look very different. I know for myself I will miss my Mother’s Day Breakfast. For some it’s having a special get together with all the extended family. However, it looks like this year there is going to be lots of video calls for Mother’s Day!

Normally I like to have a special Mother’s day mini session. This year I thought it would be nice to create something for all the mum’s out there with something special they can look forward to!

SAVE-A-DATE is for an outdoor family session sometime in the future. This includes full family sessions or single parents just mum and kids or dad and the kids. Unfortunately extended families aunty’s, uncle’s, cousins etc are not included in the offer. It is limited to one family unit plus grandparents if you wish. However, we are heading into winter this will hopefully be something we can make happen later on this year in spring or summer 2021.

What is SAVE-A-DATE registration?

By registering on the website you will receive a GIFT VOUCHER for an outdoor photography session, with 12 months to use it. This is normally valid at $100.

How much does it cost?

IT’S FREE! That’s right! When you register I will send you an email with your digital voucher to send as a gift or keep it for yourself!

Sounds great! What photos are included?

After having a fantastic photoshoot we will arrange a viewing time to look at all your photographs. I will send you lots of information about the photo packages and printing products available to purchase.

Most importantly this is my way to give something special during this crazy Corona virus time. This time away from our loved ones really makes you realise what’s important. I hope it’s a way families can re-connect and just bite the bullet and have some great photos together!

**EARLY BIRD SPECIAL**

If you secure your SAVE-A-DATE gift voucher with a $50 deposit by MAY 31ST then you will receive a credit of $200 towards your photographs!

Also, you will also have first priority for bookings as soon as we have the Government OK to return to work.

*This offer is not included with any other gift voucher promotion.

Stay Safe

Hi Everyone, as we all know we are in quite unusual times right now, nothing we have ever experienced before. For now I am putting my little biz on pause as we get through the Covid-19 crisis. Unfortunately there will be many families that miss out on having their little new babies photographed but I promise to make it up to you as soon as I can. All is not lost, having your baby photographed at any age is a blessing. And for all the families booked in for their outdoor sessions well that’s ok because we will just postpone to when we can and my feeling is we will be in time for beautiful spring and summer!

So take a breath, take it easy and just stay home!

See you on the flip side!
