She Makes them Complete

I'm not even sure where to begin with this family.... They have meant so much to me over the last few years, beginning with the year in the life I did for their oldest child, through to this year in the life I've done for their youngest. I was also lucky enough to document their beautiful wedding last month, but more on that later ;)

A Perfect Afternoon

One of my favourite people in the world invited me into her home to document a piece of her life and my heart is so full with gratitude for her. I wish I could have stayed longer, she is such a kindred spirit.

Mornings with You

I really love it when families are willing to let me arrive really early in the morning, before anyone is out of bed. It's a vulnerable period of the day for most people, and the privilege to be able to spend those early morning hours with them is not lost on me. This family is one that I've known for several years now, and when I found out they were expecting their second baby I was so thrilled to be asked to come and document the early days of life with a toddler and newborn for them.

Rainy Afternoons

There are honestly, no words to describe the love I have for this family. This is the third year in a row that I've filmed/photographed them and each year I go there I just fall in love with their way of life more and more. When I'm there I feel relaxed and welcomed, like I'm just a part of their family. I love seeing the kids grow each year, and I just adore hanging out with them for the day.

The Ocean is Calling

We took a much needed break and headed up the coast this week for some family time. I feel like time is slipping away with my oldest sometimes. He's changing so much, becoming so much more connected emotionally to the people around him. He's maturing, developing a hilarious sense of humour, and taking in experiences with his whole being. He loved the ocean. We don't visit it often enough, so I definitely have plans to change that this year.

Just Before we Leave

Back in November I flew down to Melbourne to film and photograph the family of one of my all time favourite photographers, Amy Shire.

To say I was nervous is an understatement.

Happiness is Bliss

I have felt such a strong calling lately to create a set of images that I have in my mind of how children see their mothers. Not just of motherhood itself, although that's important to me as well, but images for the children, the way THEY see their mother. Beautiful and soft, yet carrying so much strength within her. When you look at these images I made for Emma and her family, I hope you'll see that as well.
