Stacey and Josh... you are one of the most humble and incredible couples I have met. You vigorously love your family and have a love for each other with a truth and depth that is just amazing to see.
The love that you have for one another is that rare kind of love that lasts the time... it shifts and adjusts as life moves... its magnetic to those around and it was a complete honour to be able to capture your day for you.
A huge big thank you to all these wonderfully talented wedding vendors for helping to make Stacey and Josh's day all that it was...

How adorable is little Evan... I am thrilled to be sharing this little guys "newborn photography" debut. Evan was super alert and just wanted to stay awake for his newborn session... he did give in to sleep at the end though, allowing me to capture some cute memories for his mummy and daddy.
It was an honour being there to capture family life unfold... watching Evan's mummy and daddy gently soothe him by playing the piano and singing sweet songs was most definitely a highlight...
Little one... you are already so loved.
The girls from Legacy Studio's are such a delight to work with and I love being able to capture their incredible talent... Just a few of my favs...
Loving having a camera back in my hands... and especially loved hanging out with George and Kerry the other week... such an incredible couple to be around.
I absolutely LOVE working with Popping Candy... from a creative point I get to pretty much do what I like... and not only that... I get to do it with shoes that I love! These flats are no exception... they are the coolest shoes with such fun and quirky designs. They are comfortable and stylish and I serisouly can't recommend them enough.
The only problem with photographying Popping Candy shoes... I have a new shoe obsession
Chris and Tony, thank you SO much for having me over in your family home to spend time with your tribe. I know it's rare to have you all in one place at the same time, even just in the same country for a photo. So I hope you love this real, honest and raw account of your gorgeous family.
Your family is one who always has a soft spot in my heart... something I get to do often as a photographer is witness bonds and relationships... Chris and Tony, you are both such an incredible couple and its clear to see why your family is so close.
Last time I photographed these guys they were a family of three... It was so lovely to meet Jake's new little sister, Ella Rose. Ella is one seriously cute little girl who has both her parents and her big brother wrapped around her little pinkie. I smiled my whole way through photographing this session... how could I not when I had little Ella watching me so intently the entire time.
Jo & David, thank you SO much for entrusting me once again to capture the beautiful bond your lovely little family have. You guys are always such a delight to work with!
I have neglected this website for a little too long now so I thought I'd better get back to posting some recent work up... starting with some shots of my babies and their cousins taken over the summer time...
Missing these warm summer days... "Cousins are friends that will love you forever"
If you haven't heard about Popping Candy Shoes then you have been missing out!... Such a fun, cute and stylish heel that is not only comfy but also super funky and works with every girls individual style... you can go as crazy or as minimal as you want... either way you'll love these heels and I LOVE photographing them
These guys are so much fun to be around... such a beautiful family... I love being able to see how much the kids grow through the seasons.
Check out a few of my favs from their session...
Now that the days are getting longer and the nights getting warmer we can shoot family lifestyle sessions midweek in the evenings...
