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.

Wilson Family | Ocean Grove Family Photographer

I caught up with this family before the weather turned cold, so the beach was windy but the light  pretty stunning.   I'd love to shoot at the beach all year round but not many fams are willing to brave it when it's been this cold!

This particular spot in Ocean Grove means a lot to the family, so it was pretty special to be able to photograph them here and include this part of the beach and their story into the session.

Enjoy!

 

Knight Family | Family Photographer Ocean Grove

I love photographing babies and their tiny details in the studio but I also love getting on location with families too, it's a hard life trying to decide which I love more isn't it!

As a photographer I spend so much time really educating people on why it's so important to have pro family images done, so it's always that little bit satisfying when people do book me and I get to show them through their own photos just how amazing it is!  No one ever regrets actually biting the bullet and booking it.

This gorgeous little family met up with me at one of my favourite reserves in Wallington, and the autumn light really came through that day.     Mum had told me their little one might be a bit shy, but a few minutes in and we had her twirling around dancing for us!    You never know how they are going to respond.

These guys left me a gorgeous review as well,  which never goes unnoticed!

"Amazing photos - my daughter is generally so shy, but right from the beginning she was so comfortable with Natalie. Photos turned out even better then we could have hoped for."

Leave this fam some love in the comments!


 

Deffert Family | Point Lonsdale Family Session

My first gorgeous session of the year, and it was this lovely family!  We headed to their beautiful local beach at close to sunset and this session was the result.    My favourite shots have to be the end of the session, where everyone just got to play in the water and hang out as the laid back family they are.   

Enjoy!
 

 

Baby Amelia | Geelong Newborn Photographer

Baby Amelia came in a few weeks ago with her family for her very own newborn session.    My favourite shot of the day has to be the image of Amelia with her little flopsy bunny, as her big sister has one just like it!  I bet when their little bunnies are tucked safely away somewhere years from now, that these images will be bring back all the feelings and memories of the first few years for mum and dad.   Love it.
