THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE THE PEOPLE WE LOVE, THE PLACES WE'VE BEEN AND THE MEMORIES WE'VE MADE ALONG THE WAY // Barossa Valley
Another beautiful Barossa Valley family photoshoot. The Barossa is so dear to my heart and special to so many people. The diversity of the landscape is the perfect setting for a family shoot. Seeing brothers and sister and cousins happily hang out together is so special and a great way to document that moment in time. These are the memories that are forever frozen in our minds.
This family had a great time exploring such a beautiful garden. To bring your daughter back to the place where you promised your life to your other half was a wonderful idea for a photoshoot. Full of personality and a love of life, this beautiful little girl really worked it for her shoot.
Capturing these memories of a family bond is something so special and memories that will last a lifetime!
This maternity shoot was extra special for so many reasons. I got to revisit the area where I grew up AND I got photograph one of my oldest friends. We have done a lot together and motherhood is just another journey we are blessed to share.
This little baby is due to enter the world any day now and it is super lucky to have picked such wonderful parents to have. This couple are so lucky to have found one another to start their family journey together. Both are so near and dear to our families heart- we can't wait for our children to grow up together.
Fate works in wonderful ways!
A great adventure is about to begin!
The beach, sunsetting on a balmy evening and a beautiful pregnant mumma to be. I walked away from this shoot feeling all loved up. It was just everything you would want from a shoot and too many images to condense down. As you prepare for the journey into motherhood, it's so lovely to take the time to focus on what lies ahead and celebrate the life you have with your partner until 2 becomes 3. Looking back on these images will be special for so many more reasons in the years to come as it symbolises a change in the world as you know it. A new world is beginning for this beautiful couple- it is just simply wonderful!
This little guy who was just a little newbie when I met him (I think he was just shy of 2 weeks old), was so alert and so amazing for his shoot. We captured some beautiful memories from this day for his family to treasure. They change so quickly in such short frames of time, its just wonderful to be able to freeze these little moments to look back on something you created that was so small and to look at how far you have come. Being a parent is the most wonderful thing in the world and capturing those moments are just so special.
Little boys always hold a place in their mothers hearts!
Here sleeps a girl with a head full of magical dreams, a heart full of wonder and hands that will shape the world.
This little girl was truly lucky to pick such loving parents! The moment I walked into this beautiful home I knew that this shoot was going to be just magical. Such dreamy curtains throughout this house set the scene for some gorgeous photos! And she was a little superstar! Halfway through our shoot she fell asleep and drifted off into the yummy world of baby dreams. Congratulations on such a beautiful little girl to bring into this world!
Sibling love and that special bond that you have with your brother is just oozing from these photos! These are my nephews and my god do they just love each other. Not all the time, especially when one has something the other wants, but when it really matters, when its just you and your brother, these boys really have it.
"The greatest gift our parents ever gave us was each other." Being a parent is not always the easiest job, especially when you have more than one (or so I can imagine). But I know my sister always says that when she sees the bond that the boys have with each other, being so close in age, makes it all worth everything.
Just me and my bro- I can't promise to solve all your problems, but I can promise that you will never have to face them alone.
Beth, you are doing an amazing job at being a mum to these boys! These photos truly show that.
Baby Girl Clova- you are certainly the apple of your mummy and daddy's eye! You are like a little doll. Just shy of 2 weeks old here (I think) and so alert with your mummies eyes, yet so sleepy too. She was a little angel as we posed her and put her in her bed of flowers and outfit changes! Her amazing new mummy was so great with her, helping her sleep and feel so comfortable as we endeavoured to get some creative little photos to remember her first weeks of life in this world. I love seeing new mummies with their little bundles- so delicate and loving with every touch- its just so beautiful! And the way a daddy holds his daughter is just so special! I loved seeing Jon and how smitten he is with her- such a doting daddy!
I have loved capturing this family grow- from their wedding day, maternity shoot and now their newborn photos. I feel lucky to call these guys friends and it's even more special to document their life through images! So, so special! Congratulations on being such wonderful new parents Zana and Jon! Little miss is perfect!
