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 ;-)

SO glad I put the call out for mini’s in the beautiful Timboon this week. It meant I got to meet more gorgeous families like this one right here! Here are just a few of my faves Jade. You guys rocked it!! (Hope your mum loves the shots of you and bro too, finally got them!) x

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!

BARTON FAMILY - warrnambool lifestyle photography

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!

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

BOWMAN FAMILY - warrnambool family photography

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

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!)

LOUISE + HER LOVES - warrnambool family photography

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...

SMITH FAMILY - melbourne family photography

I still get nervously excited before every session. And when i'm hired by other talented photographers, the nerves often outweigh the excitement! As soon as I met the lovely Liz on Saturday though, I felt like i'd known her and her fabulous fam-bam for yonks. The nerves disappeared in a second and this fun shoot was just so EASY. 

Gosh I had a good day on Saturday, a run of AMAZING sessions, and how beaut is this location (thanks Liz for the heads-up on that one!)??

While i've got your attention, make sure you check out this talented mumma's work too, she's Lizzie Jean Photography - Melbourne Cake Smash & Portrait Photographe :-) As clever as she is gorgeous.

It was so hard to pick just a few of my faves, even for this epic sneak peek . Thanks SO much Smith family, i truly LOVED this. Happy birthday to the big teenager too ;-) xx

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!

GEORGIES GANG - warrnambool beach sunset family photography

Hopefully you can tell from my tone when I post (i always wish I was more eloquent), that i'm GENUINELY excited by every session I have, stoked to meet so many beautiful families and love, love, love that families put their trust in me to capture a snapshot of their lives. I think THIS kind of family session particularly resonates with me at the moment, as it's the blissful, chaotic, crazy-busy and fun state I find myself in with my own family right now. The beautiful growing family. 

I know I harp on about existing in photos, but hopefully any insecurities and hesitations are completely obliterated when you see your family, your love, your moments, captured forever. Photos are SO precious. Memories for our kids. And heck, any excuse to hang out with your gang at the beach is a good night!!

Georgie, i'm so, SO happy we met at the beach last week. These photos absolutely make my heart sing (yes, that sounds soft and hippy I know, but it's true), and THIS; these photos, this night, these memories... is EXACTLY why I love doing this so much.

You have a BEAUTIFUL family Georgie, In absolutely every respect.
I hope you love these photos as much as I do. It was a privilege to hang with you. xx

PS... this is a tiny weenie handful of my favourites, I feel a "part 2" coming on!

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!

DOOLAN FAMILY SNEAK PEEK - warrnambool family photography

I can't even begin to imagine how busy the past year has been for this gorgeous family. I mean, our third child is a whirlwind, to put it lightly, but TWO babies about to turn one; that's a pretty epic cause for a pat on the back, Bel + Sam!! It was a busy session, there were a few tears (and that was just me... jokes!), but these are my favourite kind of session; I call them beautiful chaos. I drive away thinking, "heck I hope I got something, that was a busy one!" but then every time I end up grinning from ear to ear as I edit (utterly relieved!). I even love that in quite a few of the shots, at least one of the twins has called it quits while everyone else just carries on grinning. That's life, you've gotta laugh! Thanks so much for having me at your beautiful property Doolan family, I can't begin to tell you how much I loved it. Hopefully the pictures do that for me...

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
