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.

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.

Visiting Sydney

These guys travelled all the way over from the Phillipines for their little girl's birthday and asked me to come document them exploring Sydney. Even though I was booked pretty solidly, and technically didn't have time to do another session, I jumped at the opportunity to do a session like this and I'm SO glad that I did. It was amazing shooting in such an iconic location, and I had SUCH a blast hanging out with them.

Perfect Just as You Are

I had such an amazing morning with this beautiful family. The way they love and care for their little boy just shines through in every thing that they do.

The Farm

I went over to the US to film/photograph a wedding in NC, and then teach my Filming Life Retreat in Nashville TN, and thankfully we got to spend an afternoon at my grandparent's farm in Alabama while we were there. This house holds so much history for my family, and although it was hard balancing being present with everyone and documenting, it was worth the extra effort to have these photos.

Ordinary Beauty

Just an ordinary day, at home. Doing life. This my friends, is what I MOST love to capture. This is what fills my heart, what inspires me on a daily basis. Finding those little moments that make a family unique, that show the love and beauty that exists in everyday life.

Mornings with You

I find myself having super short windows of opportunity to make pictures of our life right now, and they tend to be really early in the morning before the to do lists of the day take over. So here are a few recent mornings over the last couple of weeks.

Giggles in the Morning

It's always such a huge honour when a photographer hires you to document her family, particularly for a second time! I photographed them for the first time in 2015 when their youngest was just a baby and when she asked me again for a session this year I was super excited, not only because I love hanging out with them (seriously they have me in stitches of laughter 90% of the time), but because I got to see and document how much the kids have grown as well. Here's a little peek into the beautiful Saturday morning I spent with them

Hug Life

My absolute favourite kind of sessions are the slow ones where we just hang out at home, pottering around exploring, playing, just enjoying each other's company. That's what this session was all about. It was the most glorious chilled out session, and after so much rain I was worried that the sun wouldn't come out during their session but it did!
