Today marks one full lap around the sun for sweet William - how fast that has gone! It was a beautiful, calm morning when he was welcomed into this world - greeted by his parents, big brother and some very doting grandparents.
At 8 days new, I spent the morning with Russell, Ashleigh, their fur babies and their newest, sweetest addition - baby Theodore Stanley. He is P E R F E C T I O N and you bet that I savoured (and inhaled!) all the sweet fresh baby goodness. A few frames from a chilly morning at home with the Fergusons -
Tahlia + Darcy | 03.11.2018 | Avon Ridge Vineyard
From beginning to end this was a love filled celebration - Tahlia + Darcy traveled back to home soil from their NSW residence to finally make their little family official surrounded by their nearest and dearest. November in Victoria is always a gamble weather wise (actually, let’s be honest - any time of year in Victoria is a gamble weather wise!). The rain shied away but there were some crazy winds thrashing through the winery were the celebrations took place. A few extra bobby pins and they were good to go - taking it all in their stride! It was such a wonderful day to share with these guys and their families! Their little boy Bohdi is only a few days older than my own little lady baby so it’s been fun to navigate mamahood with Tahlia the last 20 months! A few frames from The Dugan Wedding -
Star-crossed lovers, so very close to my heart. Lauren and I have had a wonderful relationship over the last twelve years and it has been just the very best to watch her love story unfold before my very eyes. I adore both Lauren and Ben and am absolutely giddy to see them make it official in only a few days time. The best is yet to come, dear friends!
One of the most sacred and treasured experiences thus far in my photography career was documenting the birth of baby Judah - my first foray into birth photography. Being invited into such a private and intimate space was an honour and a privilege. Birth is extraordinary - no matter how that perfect little human decides to enter our world. Allanah was strong, fierce and courageous as she birthed her beautiful boy in the dying moments of Easter Saturday. It was a miracle I was able to make it, after photographing a wedding 45minutes from where Allanah was birthing I hit the highway and made it with just over an hour to spare. I will forever treasure the opportunity to be there.
I’m passionate about documenting your birthing journey. If it’s something you’ve considered, please get in touch - I’d love to make it happen. Head to my info page for some more details about the birthing packages I offer.
Jenni + Nic’s destination wedding in their home-away-from-home, Phillip Island, was the most incredibly laid back, fun and festive affair. Jenni + Nic knew exactly how they wanted their day to go and were not afraid to shy away from tradition. From choosing to have me spend time with the boys at the beach instead of getting ready, to that heart-melting first look - the day was completely them. They wanted to spend as much time together and with their tribe of wedding guests and I relished in the short and sweet opportunity for traditional bridal portraits. The food was exquisite (even though I was 6 weeks pregnant and a little restricted in that respect!) and the location was glorious. These two welcomed a baby girl earthside just last week and I’m so pumped to catch up with them again and meet their little lady baby!
