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

Charde, Ned & Axel’s Family Lifestyle Session

I love this family.

Over the last couple of years, Charde & Ned have asked me to be there to capture Charde’s maternity photographs and Axel’s birth.  They contacted me last year to say they were flying into Sydney for a quick visit over Christmas – so we figured out a gap in their busy schedule and managed to have a lifestyle session while they were here to mark Axel’s first birthday.

It’s amazing seeing families grow and develop together over the years.  I really love my job.
