Welcome to the World, Baby Esme!

001-Esme
I don’t feel that photographing newborn bubs is an area of expertise for me -I’m not just the youngest in my immediate family, but almost the youngest of my generation in my extended family too. I was never around small children as I grew up, I was never a babysitter or a tutor. Until fairly recently, I used to refer newborn enquiries on to other photographers who I felt could provide better images than I could – but lately photographing babies and young families is an area I’ve been exploring, enjoying and finding extremely rewarding. I’ve always been a little unsure of myself around babies – terrified of holding them wrong or making them cry… but I will always, always, ALWAYS jump at the chance to photograph the new addition to the family for my clients, and with practice I’m feeling much more sure of myself. I was lucky that little Esme here made it so easy for me!

I photographed Elaine and Adam’s wedding in 2014, and I remember them mentioning in their speech how they were hugely grateful to their families, and couldn’t wait to start a family of their own. Two years later, baby Esme has brought them all of the parenthood joy they’d been dreaming of. Congratulations, guys!

Ashley & Curtis’ Mt Coot-Tha Engagement Session

015-AshCurt

There’s just something about these two. Both old souls with young hearts, and an old romance to match, Ashley and Curtis’ April wedding day is set to be a spectacular event with a 1920s flair and all the love you could dream of. We spent an afternoon touring the Brisbane Botanic Gardens at Mt Coot-Tha, capturing these delicate and dreamy images and sharing stories. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding day in just over a month!

Amanda & Josh’s Hastings Point/Kingscliff Wedding

 

001-AmandaJosh

You’d be hard pressed to find a cooler couple than Amanda and Josh – while the details of their day totally added to their story (how cute is Amanda’s puppy in her little wedding collar!) the real focus of the whole day was on their love, and celebrating it with their friends and family – which is exactly how it should be.
It wasn’t all smooth sailing – due to extremely unfortunate circumstances on the day their celebrant was unable to officiate the ceremony, but the lovely Ruth Dunbar stepped in and saved the day (thank you Ruth!). Nobody panicked, they just took the setback as time for an extra glass of champagne and a few more photos.

Crystal & Jake’s Crystal Creek Wedding

I love the romance of eloping – just two people in love celebrating their togetherness, marrying in secret and making incredible memories. Crystal and Jake’s special day was perfect for all of those reasons – add in a stunning sunny sky and the picturesque beauty of Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat and you have a recipe for incredible wedding photographs! I had the pleasure of being a witness for these sweethearts and I couldn’t have been happier to be part of their day.

Janis and Deric’s Brisbane Garden Engagement Shoot

I can’t even describe to you how excited I am for Janis and Deric’s wedding in September. Not only are the both wonderful friends of mine, but so is every member of their bridal party. This celebration is going to be HUGE and I’m so excited to be the one to capture it!

We spent a magical afternoon at Eagle St Pier and the Riverside Botanic Gardens capturing their engagement images. I can’t wait to see what kind of photographic wizardry we can make on their wedding day.
