Torquay Family Photography Session | Schmidt Family

I LOVED this session.

They do say never work with kids and animals and yet I often combine both and expect it to be a tiny bit difficult! But this session was pretty magical as we had this gorgeous little 10 month old and his big pooch and they were both…um, pretty AMAZING.

Even with the slightly cold, overcast day this little one was all smiles!

It’s always a serious pleasure to photograph laid back, happy families on the beach and this is a totally perfect example.

This session was a Christmas gift for grandma so I hope she loved it!

Leave some love for little Finn, his mum, dad, aunty and pooch.

Newborn Photos Geelong | Baby Harry

Sweet little baby Harry was in my studios a few weeks ago for his newborn session, along with his big bro. We stuck to some beautiful neutral colours for Harry's session, which suited his cute little self!  I love how curled up he was in his first wrap, like a little bundle.

Enjoy Harry's beautiful images :)

Baby Paxton | Baby Photos in Ocean Grove

A couple of years ago big brother Ryder came in as a newborn and now here he is back with mum, dad and his new baby sister Paxton! It's always so cool when my clients come back, and I'm so lucky that it happens all the time and I do get to see the kids grow from a tiny newborn to a rambunctious toddler!

Enjoy baby Paxton's beautiful session.

Baby Evelyn | Ocean Grove Newborn Photographer

Sweet baby Evelyn came in a few weeks ago for her newborn session.  She looks like such a little doll in these images, and check out that eye contact.  Having seen her today so mum and dad can see their images, rest assured this little one is only getting cuter! Enjoy xx

Jack & Ella | Kids and Children Photography Ocean Grove

I first met Ella and Jack around two years ago when Jack was just 2 years old and Ella was a 6 year old who couldn't stop doing hand stands!     It's now two years later and they have grown so much, but luckily for me (and their mum!) they are still very sweet and love to cuddle each other!  They are the happiest pair of kids, I don't think I've ever seen a frown! Enjoy!

(p.s  here is their session from a few years ago! http://www.nataliem.com.au/2014/10/kids-photography-ella-jack/ )

Couples Session | The Etwells and Their Puppies

The Etwells came to me about organising a couples session for their one year wedding anniversary.    As you can see, the extra fun bit was that they bought their two adorable puppies with them.These two wanted some very relaxed, casual images to celebrate their relationship, so that's what they got!

Family Session in Barwon Heads | Michael's Family

"That was SUCH a waste of time and money" said dad Mike after our shoot the other week to his wife Dana."We are never doing photos again until our son can sit and smile!".

When I dropped off the family's images today,  Dana told me the funniest story of her husband's reactions after our session.   Her hubby was absolutely convinced  the session had been a total disaster!

Now to be fair,  gorgeous little Michael had not been in a very 'cooperative' mood that day.  We certainly had to work hard to get his attention, to get him to stay in one spot for longer than 2.5 seconds and he was too interested in the trees and the beach to want cuddles with boring old  mum and dad, no way!

But like I tell everyone, don't worry - I know what I'm getting at the session.

So what happened when I posted the sneak peaks that night?

"Oh my god, she's a miracle worker!"    He loved so many of them it was hard to choose!

In all seriousness, most clients do feel the same, especially before their family session.   Some people don't even book because they honestly think their kids won't sit and behave.     Honestly, they do not need to - there are no magically behaved angelic kids in my sessions, just normal every day kids who run off, have tantrums and never sit where we want them to!

What do you think?   Here are the photos from this wonderful session :)
