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

Autumn is here!

Yep, 2015 feels like its flying by. Im running my annual Autumn mini sessions again this year, limited sessions are available.  They are super popular, so don’t delay contacting me for a booking. Autumn is one of my fave seasons, so much colour and fun!  Who doesn’t want to run about in knee deep leaves and throw them on top of Mum and Dad (and usually the photographer too!) Packages start at $190 which includes some prints and digital files. To wet those taste buds, here is some Autumn colour from years past. Grab a cuppa, there are a few!  B x  

Ryan

As I’ve mentioned in earlier posts recently, I have the pleasure of photographing families as their children grow. Ive taken Ryan’s portrait three years running now, and each year is just as much fun and heart melting as the year before.  Photographing Deb and Ryan together is such a joy as the bond they share is so, so sweet!  I may just have to do another blog later in the week that has the last three christmas for you so you can see what I mean. But for now, here they are in all their spunkiness.  I challenge you to not sigh at their cuteness. x

Giggles!

Yep, its that time of the year where I play ‘blog catch up’.  Where I share with you my fave sessions from December and January, where I was too busy shooting to be blogging (and maybe wrapping a few christmas presents of my own.) This is gorgeous Caitlyn, whom I have photographed for a few years now and its always so much fun!  She loves to perform and will happily break into a song and dance number at the drop of a hat.  I find thats when I am able to capture Caitlyn being Caitlyn.  She also seems to like my jokes, or is that a polite sympathetic giggle perhaps? Hmm, probably! Here is the pure sugar sweetness that is Caitlyn. xx

Ruby anniversary

Oh to have a love that you can celebrate 40 years of marriage! The warmth and love that this family radiated had me beaming the whole time I was shooting.  Family and life long friends coming together to celebrate a couple that have built such a gorgeous life and family together. A taste of a fabulous day, thanks for allowing me to capture such a special day. xx

Personal post 'Simple life'

Some days you just have to turn off everything, devices, phones, work, your mind and do something simple with your small people, to remind you what its all about, why you do all you do.   Taking pleasure in the simple things. xxx

Sunny St Kilda

Hey hey!  Been a while I know, Im only super quick this morning as school holiday madness in full flight at my place! But I did want to sneak in and share a couple of frames from my session last weekend as I know the Mum is busting to check them out.  I have a portrait session with this family twice a year around the time of the children’s birthdays, this session was all about master 4. Enjoy and there are more to come Coomie! xx
