Dreaming of sunnier days

Oh Melbourne!!! You have outdone yourself the last few days with your gorgeous weather, thank you! I don’t know about you guys, but I have busted out the dresses, the sandals, yippee! It’s also had me thinking about the funner, warmer part of the year.  The part that you can have long lazy days at the park and even stay long enough to have dinner (yay daylight savings!) It really is such a gorgeous time of the year to update your portraits, and even cross a few christmas gifts off your list (gran and gramps perhaps?) Here are a few from a session I did for a family in their local park a little while back.  I’m currently taking bookings on weekends for family sessions, but with daylight savings fast approaching, evening sessions like this one will be snapped up super quick, drop me a line so I can book your session! 🙂

Fiona & Chris get engaged

So you may remember this lovely couple from a blog post a little bit ago, I also had the pleasure of capturing their engagement party last year and am finally sharing it with you now. Fiona and Chris had an afternoon tea party at Rosebank Receptions in Nth Ringwood.  It was a family affair, kids made super welcome with their own table and further tables outside on the lawns, all provided a fun relaxed vibe. Fiona had asked for me to not only capture the day’s moments, but also to take family photos for her guests so as to have very personal thank you notes later on (this lady thought of everything!) The cake was gorgeous and Chris’s speech super long (and very funny!)  There were little girls twirling in front of beautiful mirrors, smiles and lots of hugs.  A gorgeous couple and a gorgeous day. Here is some of the love.  B xx And here is my second shooter for the day, he was a champ 😉

Music makes him happy!

Oh this little man stole my heart!  He was my bestie the minute I walked in and wanted to sit right NEXT to me, we were such great friends.  Which would normally be fine, if I wasn’t there to take his photos! We danced, read books with Mum, chased Dad down the hallway and played cars with Nonna and Nonno. Was an action packed hour and a half that produced beautiful images that Im so excited to share with you now. Thanks so much for having me guys! x

Dance like nobody is watching

Oh to be little in a swirly dress again.  Miss Violet, you are truly adorable. xx

Winter in Melbourne

Brrr!! So winter is here, never fear!  It doesn’t mean you have to wait to have your portraits taken! Winter means warm coats, umberellas and Melbourne in a whole different light, literally.  As in winter provides beautiful soft light. And not just cute little people in raincoats and wellies can have their photos taken.  This session was of ‘Big kids’ with Mum and Dad, which can mean coffee and cake whilst waiting for the rain to ease. Melbourne city, I do love you so! And I love the images of this gorgeous family too. B x

Beautiful boys in a teeny-tiny space of gorgeous light.

Think you need a lot of space to have me come into your home for portraits?  Then you’d think wrong! Kate and I had planned to meet in the gardens with her three boys, unfortunately we were rained out.  Due to not being able to rebook our shoot so close to Christmas, we opted to go back to her place instead.  Kate lives in a terrace house, but has a fab playroom upstairs with great light.  After moving a few things (as you do in a playroom!) we literally had a meter and a half of clear space against this wall. See!  That’s all you need! And I think you’d agree, the end result is pretty damn good (if I say so myself!) Kate, your boys are gorgeous and very, very funny!  I had a ball. xx

Happy Birthday Judy!

I love birthdays, especially milestone ones as they are extra special and need extra special celebrations. Yummy food, gorgeous location and weather.  But best of all, good company! I hope you had a wonderful birthday Judy, thanks so much for having me. xx

My three.

A quick after school trip to check out my location for Sundays Autumn sessions.  This is how NOT to dress your children for a shoot, covered in logos and and a spiderman suit that is clearly WAY too small. Thanks goodness its his birthday next week so he will be getting a new suit! I have two sessions left for Sunday afternoon, buzz me if you want to come and play in the leaves! This is the only day I will be in healesville, the May session will be in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, so call me quick if this is where you would like to be! B x

Oscar

Very early morning start to meet this gorgeous little guy and his Mumma down at Jan Juc. And all he wanted to do was eat sand and seaweed.  Hilarious for us, apparently upsetting for him when it was taken away! Here are some of the images from our morning.  Big O, your images of little O are on their way. B xx

I love cheeky monkeys

And these two rascals didn’t disappoint, hilarious!  Brother and sister that are equally funny and up for a laugh, be it laying on the grass or up in a tree! So glad you hung out for your session Kate.  It was perfect weather, so worth the wait and so lovely to meet you and your gorgeous family. B x
