Leaf confetti!

Yes, they mowed my spot, my relocation spot!!  Im really not having the best luck with leaves, but the weather, the weather was fabulous!  And the cuddles and giggles from these two even better! Guys, thanks for coming in, for your patience with the location and for pretending to be babies with me 😉 Here is a preview for you to tide you over till I get back from QLD.  B x

Kids, dogs and the beach = fun! :)

Oh this session was so much fun!! Mum, Dad, three kids and two dogs.  Lots of people say ‘Never work with children and animals.’ Well to you I say ‘pfft!’ These kids and dogs were not only fun but super easy to work with too.  So easy in fact, Im going to have to do a second blog post of the images that we took at the second location. Thanks so much for meeting me at the beach guys!  And yes, my jeans were full of sand when I came home.  Sign of a good morning if you ask me. 😉

Autumn is nearing its end :(

As many of you know, Autumn would be my fave season (actually second to summer, that is!)   The colours provide stunning back drops, the kids have a ball as they are told to roll in the leaves and to throw them at me! (cheeky monkeys!) Unfortunately, mother nature has been playing game with me.  Not sure if many of you noticed, but in the burbs where I live, it has been a slow burn for leaves dropping.  Then on Monday night, I had a nightmare that all the leaves in my fave autumn spot in the world up in Healesville had already fallen….. So Seb and I drove up there Tuesday morning, and my dream was actually correct.  Plenty of leaves had fallen, not many left on the trees though.  So unfortunately, my last weekend of autumn sessions in Healesville in a fortnights time will have to be relocated to either Surrey hills or the botanical gardens in the city.  As you can imagine Im devastated.  BUT I know by the time the sessions roll around there will be no leaves left and the ones on the ground will be mulch.  Sigh. So Ive posted below some of the […]

Behind in Blogging!

Oh my goodness!!  Hello my blog, so sorry to have neglected you so! To make up for it, there will be loads of smiley faces over the next week or so before I head to QLD for the AIPP ‘The Event’ conference.  Yep, Im jamming two weeks of fun in the sun with photography being the catalyst, of course 😉 I will also be running some sessions whilst I’m in Brisbane and the Gold Coast.  So if you are a person living sunny side, or have friends that may like to meet me, I’d love to hear from you!   Meanwhile, here is a session from sunnier times in Melbourne.  Part of this gorgeous family were visiting from the US, so decided to get everyone together to have some family portraits done.  So much love, it’s radiating. 🙂 Enjoy! B x        

Golden light….

I’m not left speechless often, yes, all of you that know me well are nodding your heads in agreement. 🙂 This session had the most spectacular light I have ever worked with, all I kept saying to the client was ‘I. Am. So. Excited!!!!’ I felt like a kid in a candy store.  I could have kept shooting this gorgeous family all night.  And you know, they deserved to have this wondrous light, it was the fourth attempt at a session as we kept getting rained out.  Good things do come to those that wait! R & M, here are your glorious angels!  Thanks for such a fun session, there are plenty more for your gallery later this week. B x

Summer's just around the corner!

I had the pleasure of having another session with this gorgeous Mother-Son duo, they were one of my christmas mini sessions last year.  And it was a blast yet again!  I have so much fun with these guys, their love for each other really shines through in these images. Melbs has been putting on some pretty spectacular weather in the last week.  So we decided to head down to the beach for an evening shoot.  It wasn’t exactly warm, it was a tad windy too, which actually gave Deb her own ‘Beyonce wind machine’. 😉 I chose this location independently from Deb, so was stoked to find out this pier holds a special place in her heart.  Some of her Nana’s ashes had been scattered at this very spot, amazing hey! Deb and Ryan, it was a pleasure as always!  Here are some of my faves from your session, will be in touch very soon! Belinda x

Scooter madness!!!

I LOVE it when a client is up for something different, like ‘lets meet at the Eastland rooftop carpark on a Sunday morning REALLY, REALLY early’ different. The sun was out, the blue sky perfection, couldn’t have asked for a better morning. 🙂 So Bec and Stuart, here’s a taste of what we got up to, there are LOADS more of course, but I couldn’t wait to share. x

Sisters..

I don’t have a sister, these lucky ducks have two a piece!  I met up with these lovelies and their grown ups at the park yesterday, was a ton of fun with many gorgeous moments.  Jen and Jason, thanks for bringing the girls down and an extra big thanks to Jason for holding reflectors and defusers! The christmas mini season has begun!  Get ready to be bombarded with loads of happy, smiling faces. 🙂 I have a few sessions left, get in quick before they get snapped up! B x  

One shot – quiet moments

Yep, quiet moments do actually happen during my shoots 😉

I'm a big 3 year old x

Oh, happy heart!  After a very long break of photographing families, I had the absolute pleasure of hanging out with one of my fave families! This family see me every year at the time of their kids birthdays.  This time it was the littlest guy turning 3 we were celebrating.  We returned to the park where I took his one year old photos.  Instead of crawling about, we were running, climbing and it was fabulous. Cas and Dave, I love that you ask me to capture your family, its a privilege I hold dear to my heart.  Here are your beautiful small people! Love Belinda x Much love in this little family and so, so much fun!  xxx
