WHITEHEAD FAMILY MINI - timboon family photography

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!

HELLO HAMISH - warrnambool newborn lifestyle photography

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

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!)

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...

THE AWESOME AULDS - warrnambool family photography

I've gushed in the past about how much I love this family right here. Suz is truly one of the most thoughtful, kind, caring women and mummas i've ever had the pleasure of befriending. Nothing is too hard or too much trouble (although, clearly she has heaps of time on her hands, being the mum of 3 small boys, ha!). And don't even get me started on that million-kilowatt smile. BEAUTIFUL woman (embarrassed yet Suz??)

We got together at her mums AMAZING house for a quick sesh this crazy windy morning, and even though one little champ would much rather have been on his way to Kmart and buy his lego (no, not Matt this time), we still got some cracking, loved up, happy shots. 

Hope this reassures you Suz, it wasn't a complete disaster (haha!), actually anything but! I loved hanging out with you guys once again. You're one very lucky lady to be surrounded by boys who adore you (and at times fight over you, "MY mummy!"). 

Hope you had a fun afternoon building that lego guys!

Another beautiful family, another beautiful Warrnambool location. I say it all the time, gosh I meet some gorgeous families! Love it! The lovely Gavin's met me on Saturday for a chilly morning mini session (possibly one of the easiest ones i've ever done, thank you beautifully behaved kiddos!!). Here are just a few of my faves. Thanks for meeting me so early Ella + the gang, and for being such superstars!

O'KEEFE BUMP 2 BUB - warrnambool pregnancy lifestyle photography

Hooray for BUMP 2 BUB sessions! I met up with this gorgeous family of soon-to-be-five a few weeks back, they've since welcomed this gorgeous bump into the world (yay!) but I couldn't help but share some of my faves now that i've finished up their gallery. How picture perfect is this gang?! Straight out of a magazine. Can't WAIT to meet new baby Vance for his BUB session in their home (again, YAY!). Congrats Sally, Simon & boys. I bet you've got this party of five business down pat x

MILO'S MINI SESH - warrnambool family photography

One thing that brings me SO much joy is to see my families come back time after time. These guys are particularly memorable for me in that they were the first family to trust me to capture their beautiful brand new babe Milo AT HOME. Thus began my obsession with lifestyle photography. So thanks Kate for that little nudge! So glad we did it! It was such a pleasure to see them again almost 2 years on for a mini session at the breakwater. I won't like, it was cold, windy and wet under foot and poor little Milo was a bit over it all by the end of it, but how gorgeous is this soft winter light behind this beautiful family? Totally worth it!! Thanks again Kate, Elliot, Milo and Ari the wonder dog. You are one gorgeous little family :-)

HANNAH TURNS ONE! warrnambool studio photography

I first met Fiona at her bump session, she was pregnant with this beautiful little poppet. It was a while ago now but I still remember our lovely chat; how she was feeling about knowing her baby would be born with a cleft palate, and how she decided not to ignore this fact, nor make a big deal of it. So we captured beautiful baby Hannah in all her newborn gorgeousness (she was SUCH a darling, superstar baby too!), plus we arranged to see her again in the studio for a mini session post-surgery. Here are some of my favourites from her newborn session, you may remember these, she was shown SO much love when I posted these, I know her mum Fiona really appreciated it.
Scroll down for her second session...

Enter 1 year old, post-surgery beautiful baby Hannah! I was so so happy to see her and her lovely mum Fiona again, I loved this session. Wouldn't you know it though, the poor little poppet managed to faceplant something right before her session (as they tend to do!). So her beautiful lips were a little swollen and bruised, but I tried to edit them as little as possible. Such an amazing transformation for an already beautiful baby girl. 

I'm SO grateful that you asked me to document this time in Hannah's and your lives Fiona, A time that she won't remember but will treasure the photos from i'm sure. Can't wait to see you guys all again. xx

TRISTYN + HER GIRLS - beach family photography warrnambool

I've been meaning to post this one for months. One of my most favourite, wild, candid, natural (windy!) shoots yet. There's never a dull moment when Tristyn & her gorgeous girls come for a session and that's just the way I love it. Tristyn lets me go nuts (creatively) and capture her girls exactly how they are, lively and hilarious and that's why I always look forward to seeing them. Flashback to those lovely summer nights on our gorgeous windy beaches, late 2016 (this ones been patiently waiting to be blogged!). Hope life is treating you three well over in Jakarta girls, I adore your adventurous life. x

HELLO MIMI - studio newborn photography warrnambool

Another beaut returning family (gosh I love them!). Mum Janie is a very talented photographer herself so I was very flattered that she brought her beautiful crew along again so SHE could get in a few too. I'm pretty sure it only felt like yesterday I was taking big sister Poppy's newborn photos, am I right Janie??

SAMMY'S BEAUTY SESSION - studio mini photography warrnambool

Something a bit unusual for me. A studio "beauty" mini for the lovely Sammy who wanted to give her hubby something a little more personal on their 1st wedding anniversary. As you can imagine, it's impossible to take an even remotely bad photo of this lovely, so it was a fabulous, fun, different session for me. LADIES, this ones for you. Want to treat your other half to something more personal or just allow me to show you how beautiful you are. Be brave, it's totally worth it.

I've had the best of both worlds with this little guy (& his mumma!). I photographed him as a newborn at their GORGEOUS home when he was a freshie. He also came to visit me in the studio late last year. WINNING! Mr personality or what?! If you're considering a studio mini, here are just a FEW of my faves from this session, to give you an idea of what you can expect.

I say it a lot. I LOVE it when clients come back again and again. I love seeing little families grow and their babes becoming munchkins. I first met miss Bonnie when she was just a few days old & I was SO stoked when her mum & dad brought her back for her 1 year old mini. Such a little doll. Keep an eye out for Ace Ventura right at the end too ;-)

ANGELAS BEACH BUMP - warrnambool beach mini session photography

There's not much that's more flattering (or nerve-wracking!) than photographing another photographer and their loves. Even more so when they travel all the way from Melbourne for a session. It was SUCH a pleasure to finally meet the gorgeous and incredibly talented Angela and her lovely, lovely family late last year. This trio is now a happy family of four and I can't wait until the next time we meet.

HELLO CAPRICE - warrnambool newborn bump 2 bub

BUMP 2 BUB sessions... I LOVE THEM!! 

I'm going to do things backwards again... Welcome to the world beautiful baby CAPRICE! It was such a pleasure to capture this special time in the life of Jason & Emma, starting with a BUMP session in the studio, then I visited their gorgeous home to meet their precious miss Caprice a few months later.

I can't express how much I LOVE capturing a family in their OWN environment. There's something so much more personal about it. I'm a big fan. Can you tell?

Thanks so much Emma, Jason & Caprice... you make the most lovely trio x

And not forgetting... flash back to the studio bump session...

ROBERTS FAMILY - outdoor bump beach session warrnambool

I have a particular soft spot for this amazing little family. So I couldn't possibly have been happier to hear that they were expecting bub #2. And even happier still to have been asked to capture such a precious time in their lives. Little Miss Remy is just bursting with personality, always makes me giggle. I promise i'll bring the kids along to a shoot with me one day Miss! Stay tuned for part B... when bump became BUB <3
