A BOY + HIS POOCH | MELBOURNE FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

 

In-home sessions have made a welcome return this winter. Warm, cozy, intimate, your home is where you have made endless memories with your loved ones, and photographs can be a way for you to remember these fleeting moments.

When Emma first contacted me she explained the reason for the session was to remember life as it is now. This is their first home, and will likely be moving as the family grows. She also wanted to capture the relationship between their son Archie and Louie their dog, as well as the simple love and joy that Archie has for everything at this time. Perfect.

I hope you feel as much love and joy from this family and their pooch as much as I did capturing it.

 
 
 

SWEET CLEMENTINE | MELBOURNE MATERNITY + NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY

 

I had the pleasure of meeting Ron and Karen back in January, when they were still a family of three (including fur baby Harley, of course!). It was a peaceful evening down at one of my favourite locations on the Peninsula, with misty fog slowly rolling in from the ocean. The calm before the storm. We quickly made our way back to the car before the deluge hit, missing it by only minutes. It was perfect.

Then in May I was invited into their home to meet sweet little Clementine. This session was truly wonderful. You could FEEL the love. I can't express how thankful I am when my clients give me the opportunity to document their journey from pregnancy through to parenthood. It brings me so much joy!

 
 
 

BONDI BREW | IN-HOME FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

 

Last month I travelled to *hipster capital of the world* Bondi Beach to photograph three wonderful families. One thing you may not know about me is I used to work in travel and was able to travel a lot as part of my job. It was ace and I definitely still have the good old travel bug. But I’d thought I had seen the end of that once I had children and decided to pursue photography. Thankfully I was wrong and photography (and friends!) brought me up to Sydney and will be taking me to Adelaide later in the year. And I am so excited!

Here is the Moon family. They are currently in the process of moving to Melbourne (yay!), so they brewed up the idea of capturing a snippet of what life looks like to them living the dream in Bondi. They met in Sydney, married in Sydney, had a baby in Sydney (& bought their cat in Sydney!), and now it’s time to close this chapter and begin a new one.

A note to families - winter is fast approaching (or well and truly here), and I am thankful to be booking more in-home sessions again! If you have hesitated in booking an in-home session – don’t! Let this be a reminder to you that you do not need a beautiful or magazine worthy home. You don’t need large windows, pouring light into every room. You don't need all the latest trendy indoor plants (note the dying plant in the corner!), or fancy schmancy artwork. All I need is a floor, or a bed, a small window, and you being you with your loved ones.
