Rachel & Lars’ Family – Sydney Newborn Family Lifestyle Photography

When Rachel contacted me, she was a little bit worried that their daughter might be “too old” for a newborn session, as she was already a couple of months old.   Not at all…not even a tiny bit too old!

That’s the beauty of lifestyle photography sessions – there is no right or wrong time to have them.  You have your session when the time is right for you and your family, I’ll be here to capture it for you x

Xudai, Mandy & Caden – Sydney Family Lifestyle Photography

Caden’s little brother or sister will be arriving soon, so Xudai & Mandy thought it would be the perfect time to capture their family as they are now – before all the excitement and change that a new baby in the family brings.

Life can sweep us along in it’s crazy current pretty quickly.  Sometimes we just need to take the time to pause for a second, so we can remember who we are right now <3

Genevieve & Shane’s Family – family lifestyle photography Sydney

We started out Genevieve and Shane’s family session at home – hanging out with the kids and playing games (something these guys love to do!).

Being Sydney and the last throws of Summer, the kids had a quick dip in the pool before we headed out for a wander around the local park.  It’s days like these I feel lucky to live in a coastal city like Sydney.

Cristy, Anthony, Alexander & Sienna – family lifestyle photography in Sydney

We really are insanely lucky in Sydney to have such amazing locations to explore, play and photograph in all over Sydney.  It was a fun super-cruisey afternoon hanging out in Rozelle with Anthony, Cristy & the kids – such a great connected family.

We even managed to sneak in a few special shots of Cristy & Anthony together at the end.  I think it’s really important to get time together as a couple….. even if it’s just for a few minutes.

I like being able to make that space for people 🙂

Donna, Kevin, Angus, Maralyn & Phil – Sydney Family Photography

A bright Spring morning in the park with these beautiful people.

I love how connected Donna and her family are – you can see it in their faces.  You can feel it.

And you know, like all the good stuff in life, it’s all about the feels.

 

Dimitria, Michael, Dan & Cleo

The weather is finally starting to warm up in Sydney for Spring (well, sort of).  It’s really good to feel the sun again!

Even though it’s only been a few years since I photographed Dimi, Michael & the kids,  I love seeing how much they’ve changed in that short time and who they are becoming.  It’s pretty amazing watching families change and grow like that.

Kiersten, Hugh, Zac & Edie

Kiersten & Hugh have the most brilliant labyrinthine house in Sydney’s inner city.  It was the perfect location for their family session.

I get such a kick out of seeing people and families be themselves.  We live in such an artificial world at times and I find myself drawn to authenticity – whether that authenticity is shiny or smelly or happy or sad, it doesn’t matter, it’s real and it’s beautiful.

I can’t tell you how much I loved photographing these guys.  Kiersten & Hugh, thank you for inviting me into your world.

Lucy, Tom, Lila & Evie

I first met Lucy and Tom a few years ago when I captured their wedding (you can have a peek at their intimate palm beach wedding here).

They now have 2 little girls of their own now and with Tom’s parents visiting from the UK, it seemed a perfect time to update the family album. It was also a perfect time to have a surprise visit from the Easter Bunny, who had left all of his extra chocolate with Grandpa in the “Magic Forest”. Lila’s I’m-happy-eating-chocolate face below is absolutely brilliant.  Enjoy x
