THE ROBINSONS - warrnambool family photography

What a way to wrap up 2018! Couldn’t have asked for a better (easier!) final session, than the one I had on a balmy Friday night with this crew at their amazing property.

I’ll admit, the lovely Tory was SO excited about the session that I was a bit nervous that I wouldn’t live up to her hopes, but fingers crossed she loves these as much as I do. I know I had a fantastic time hanging out with them at least, what obliging young lads! I’ve edited my way through the photos with a massive grin on my face, this isn’t even half of them!

I’m so glad you finally managed to pin me down Tory, I really hope these are everything you’d dreamed they’d be. I left your place buzzing + can’t wait to do it again some day ;-)

This beautiful family have become fabulous regulars of mine, usually visiting the studio. This time though I headed out to their property in gorgeous Timboon + i’m so glad i did, outdoors is always my fave ;-)
These 3 little munchkins are as lovely and obliging as they are beautiful (seriously, their EYES!), always a pleasure. I have met the spunkiest little “3rd children” the last few weeks too, including Mr Jack, little cracker! We have one of our own, so I can totally relate.
See you again next year Renee + gang!

This beautiful family right here has been with me, repeatedly, since the very beginning. Back in the days where i’m embarrassed to claim the photos that I took (and over-edited!). I’m so very grateful for that.

Last week, I had the pleasure of hanging out with them again at their INCREDIBLE property (yes, this “wood” is on their land, woo!). There’s been one major change since our last shoot, the addition of adorable little Mr Tommy. My #3 is only a few months older than Tommy and Courtney and I quickly realised we both have the same child. There’s a reason they both have the nickname “Dennis”… gotta love that cheeky #3! Not to mention a new puppy! Fiesty little “Onyx”, we did well to get him in a few!

ALWAYS love hanging out with this gorgeous family (and not just because I get to go for a spin on golf buggies!), always a pleasure to “work” with, the kids are old pro’s at it, and i mean LOOK at them… i’m pretty sure Courtney is getting even more gorgeous as she gets older!

Thanks you guys, epic as always. Thumbs up Tommy-boy! x

If I could say that any night was the “perfect” night for shooting, it would have to be this one.
At the balmy end of a 30+ day, I met up with the gorgeous Jellie clan at the beach.
Speaking of picture perfect… these guys, am I right? I honestly don’t ever feel like i’m “working” while i’m shooting, and this night particularly so. Effortless and gorgeous on their part.

Thanks Ange, Paul + lovely kids (those freckles!!!), I had a ball.
Hope you love your pics as much as I do, this is about half of them!
Bare with me though, it’s a long post but I promise they’re worth the scroll!

HELLO DANI - warrnambool newborn studio photography

Second time in the studio for this beautiful family (I mean, look at them right?!), who have recently become a party of 4! Another gorgeous girl added to the gang, Miss Dani. I had the pleasure of photographing big sis Emma not too long ago as a new little poppet, and I was SO thrilled to hear from mum Sam as soon as I announced I was shooting again. The studio has become my dumping ground with all the upheaval that has been our year (long story there!) but I couldn’t have been happier to transform the junk room back into my studio for this fab family.

And can I just say… it feels SO good to be shooting again! The nerves were rife before this shoot, but as soon as we laid little Dani down and she flashed the biggest, gummiest grin, I knew it was going to be a blinder. And it was. It was an absolute pleasure, once again, Sam. Thanks for bringing me your beautiful babies xx

HELLO WINTER - warrnambool newborn lifestyle photography

Big brother Milo's newborn home lifestyle session is STILL one of my faves. You can imagine my excitement (and self-inflicted pressure) when Kate + Elliot asked me to pop over and capture their newest addition, baby Winter at home. She's just as beautiful as her big bro and i'm going to love this session as much as the first. Thanks for being awesome regulars, Warburton fam, and congrats on making another GORGEOUS addition.

Oh and I LOVE seeing all their past sessions up on their walls, well done guys!

When one of your favourite families gets a little bigger!
Meet beautiful, bright eyed little Hamish. I had the privilege of capturing the moment superman Suz gave birth to her FOURTH little man a few weeks back, and couldn't resist popping over for a quick sesh with the new family of 6. Never a dull moment in the Auld house, LOVE IT.
Congrats Suz, Matt + boys... you make six look easy ;-) 

PS... this woman has JUST had her fourth baby... how incredible does she look?!

REX'S MINI SESH - warrnambool family photography

Even though gorgeous Mr Rex was SO ready for a sleep, he still turned on the charm and showed off his recently arrived chompers and sparkly blue eyes on a chilly Warrnambool winters morning. Rex is so loved and such a darling. Basically just a gorgeous trio. 
Loved seeing you and your boys again Ange, we miss seeing you every day at school, but being a mum suits you so much x

I love that the gorgeous Bowman family were happy to brave a chilly Warrnambool winter morning for their photo shoot. So with the ice crackling on the grass underfoot we met up for some happy snaps. Here's a few of my faves, in one of my favourite spots.
Thanks for being such good sports in the cold guys, Miss Annie especially was a little trooper!

CHANTAL + HER LOVES - warrnambool family beach photography

I don't have favourites, of course, but this gorgeous crew is one of my most regular, most loved "come-on-backers", and they are ALWAYS a pleasure. As usual, SO much I could say, I have a full heart editing this session, thinking of this lovely family, but i'll try to keep it short. These beautiful kids probably don't know yet how lucky they are to have such a loving, devoted, clever, talented (yes she's an awesome photographer!), gracious and dignified mumma, who i'm delighted to now call my friend.

Chantal, I hope you know how much I LOVE that you've supported me through the years and trusted me with your family memories, and to watch you become a super-talented photographer yourself. Thanks just doesn't seem to cut it xx

HELLO ZURI - warrnambool newborn lifestyle photography

I feel so very fortunate to have been able to share in a special milestone of this beautiful little family,  not once, but twice. I've loved following and capturing the inspiring journey that has led them to this point. To see them go from happy couple, to FAMILY. Blessed with 2 beautiful baby girls, against all the odds. 

So much I could say, but I'll just cut straight to the gorgeousness. I LOVE hearing of situations like theirs, having the babies they've so longed for. This is a huge part of why I love what I do. Babies, families are SO precious, I know I want to capture and freeze my own as much as I possibly can.

Oh and can I take a minute to say "STYLING ON POINTE!" How gorgeous is their house?! It's no wonder though. This clever duo are the brains behind a little local online clothing empire. Absolute go-ers who deserve every good thing that comes their way.

Once again Casey +Jesse, it's been an absolute pleasure.
How incredibly beautiful are your girls. x

HELLO CALLA - warrnambool newborn lifestyle photography

There is so much I want to say about this beautiful little fighter, but it's not my story to tell. One of my favourite parts of the "job" is being privy to wonderful, amazing journey's like little baby Calla's. She's been a fighter even before she joined mum + dad earthside, and has been kicking goals left, right and centre in the few months since. She even has the scars to prove it. A beautiful little line, proof of her ability to overcome odds.

And as you'll see, she's not just a fighter, she's ridiculously gorgeous and super happy. It was SUCH a pleasure to hang with her and her lovely folks Sheree + Pat at their home yesterday, and to complete our BUMP 2 BUB journey.

It's been such a joy to follow your journey guys.
Words can't express how happy I am to have the privilege of capturing you as a family of three. Enjoy your beautiful little miracle. x

PEARCE BUMP #2 - warrnambool maternity mini session

Casey discovered, when they arrived home after our bump session that we'd actually had our first session together 2 YEARS AGO TO THE DAY. Freaky co-incidence? Or cementing the fact that Casey + Jesse's 2 pregnancies were just meant to be. I love stories like theirs. Struggling to fall pregnant, IVF journeys and finally being blessed with healthy pregnancies and babes.

There's just so much I could say about this beautiful family (which just became 4, woo! Welcome baby Zuri!), I feel so privileged to have been asked to capture their amazing journey into parenthood 2 years ago, and now, to capture the arrival of baby #2. And did I mention they're just downright LOVELY people too? Of course they are. Look at them! 

Congratulations feels inadequate Case + Jesse. SO happy for you guys. Thanks for having me along for the ride again. (Stay tuned for Miss Zuri's session in the next few weeks! WOO!)

Because I couldn't pick one or two for a sneak peek... here are a few of my faves from my session right before xmas with the very lovely Louise and her family (I miss seeing these gorgeous faces at our school every day Louise!). And even better, Louise's dad and sister also joined in on the action, we'll definitely get mum in on the action next time when she's well.

Thanks for being so patient with me guys, you made things SUPER easy for me.
Oh and I cannot NOT mention... how beautiful are these kids?! (and as lovely as they are attractive!)

I took on a last minute booking earlier this year, I had a good vibe about the lovely lady at the other end of the email. I'm so glad I followed my instincts. I've absolutely LOVED every minute spent with this lovely family. From Sammy's BUMP session, documenting beautiful Lincoln's incredible entrance into the world, a studio BUB session with proud big sister Peyton... and last night... a mini session with the WHOLE gang, including Troy's big boys Mitch + Shaun. 

I wish I had sound effects to go with these photos, especially the group ones. Sammy's hilarious, contagious laughter throughout the chaos. Just beautiful. Or beautiful chaos. If I had to label the session that would be the title. My favourite kind of session. 

Sammy + Troy, what a beautiful big family you have. Thanks so much for letting me hang with you again, my lovely new friends.

Oh and these are just a FEW (!) of my faves, just to tide you over for a few weeks...
