After 70 years in the same family, this beautiful home was about to be sold. Despite the almost empty state, the house was full of character and evidence of a family who had enjoyed the house for generations. It was very special to be able to document this house as it transitioned from one family to another, empty but full of memories and potential.Read More
You had the best intentions to book in a newborn session. But baby came early or you were just so tired with all the craziness a newborn brings you just didn’t get around to it. Don’t worry it’s never too late to have a photo session to welcome a new baby!
This gorgeous boy was six months old when we had his session. He was full of smiles, showing off his two new toothy pegs. We were able to capture this baby stage perfectly, just sitting up, those chubby cheeks, also a snap shot of all that baby paraphernalia taking over the living room. We centred the session around his faves, reading books and going to visit the sheep and horses on the family’s picturesque farm. He’s going to have so much fun growing up there and as you can see from the images, there is a lot of love for this little blue eyed fellow!
Do you have a new baby at home and want to freeze time capturing all those sweet moments with a newborn photography session? I am currently offering sessions at home and some of the suburbs serviced are: Belmont, Newtown, Armstrong Creek, Charlemont, Barwon Heads, Ocean Grove, Jan Juc, Torquay, Moriac and Ceres. Get in touch if you have any questions!
I’m sure we can all resonate with how quickly childhood flies by. The eldest child of this family was about to start high school. In that land of limbo of still playing Lego with his brothers but teenager years on the horizon. His parents wanted to capture this innocent time before things change.Read More

During this in-home newborn session, this beautiful baby's Daddy talked to him as he started to fuss. "It's alright, these photos are for us to look at when your bigger". His mum mentioned to me that she thought she would regret not booking a session and capturing these moments. I'm so happy she did. What a wonderful gift to your son. For him to look back on as he grows and to see how much he is loved and cherished. For him to see the way his parents looked at him and each other in those first few weeks of becoming a family. This is one lucky babe.
With two years and one day between them, I'm sure these little fellows will be great mates. During the session the big brother started giving his baby brother a collection of cars to play with. He has a little while to wait before he can play but along with their fur brother George, lot's of adventures await them!
This was shoot was taken on a lovely Spring day last year giving us a taste of the Summer ahead. These five cuties were the proud new owners of an awesome cubby so we naturally spent the morning playing house! Swings and strawberry picking in their home grown vegetable garden were also a must.
I always like to get the boring posed photo out of the way, then we can have some fun! I have so many memories of spending hours of fun with my cousins. Great to be able to capture these cousins doing what they always do in Summer, hang out in the pool and play cricket and give them memories to look back on.
All the feels with this happy family, holidaying in beautiful Lorne.
Rushing around to get the children in their best clothes, “don’t get dirty, hurry the photographer is waiting!”
Does that sound like your family before your on location photoshoot?
Wait...why are you leaving? Your already in the perfect place. Your home.
This where the memories are made.
This is the place that means the most to you.
It doesn’t matter that your house isn’t the prettiest or the cleanest. Embrace the mess and chaos that children bring. When you look back at the photos of their childhood, you won’t see the mess, only the connections you felt during that particular time. The little details of your children’s favourite cup and toys. The drawing on the wall that no one owned up to. The way the light was always beautiful in the kitchen while everyone ate breakfast together. The way your littlest never left your side and clung onto your legs. These would be forgotten about if all of your photos were taken at the local park every year.
I hear many people say, “My house is too messy” or are worried about their kids behaviour. At home is where children really shine. They’re relaxed and comfortable in familiar surroundings.
It’s time to document these days of childhood in a real, unposed way. Childhood is over in a blink of an eye. Looking back in years to come the everyday will be what we hold dearest. Preserve their childhood. Tell their story as it truly was.
If you are interested in having your family’s story told through an in home session or have any questions regarding the process, please feel to email me HERE or more information.

Casual Saturday morning, trip to the local coffee shop on the corner, block towers, chicken wrangling, colouring in the sun and a spot of gardening. Oh, and the two of the cutest kids in town!
A snapshot of life when there were just the two little girls, eagerly waiting for their little baby brother to arrive. We spent the morning checking out a huge collection of beanie boo's, exploring their amazing new cubby and drawing with chalk.
