Its beautiful outside right now – not too cold, not too hot , light breezes, and beautiful colour everywhere.

Springtime is beautiful – and the perfect time to update your family portraits.  One of the biggest things I get asked when people book is what to wear.  This question is best answered by asking questions like, “how do you want to look on your wall?”

Formal is lovely, relaxed casual is beautiful.  Beach clothes at the beach – is fantastic.  Wear clothes that speak of who your family is.  For example, my husband doesn’t do a tie. Why would he wear one in our family portraits. My middle son however, he would be all over that tie like a rash.

Wear clothes that speak to who you are as a family, and then look at the aesthetics side of the portrait as to which pieces will work best.

The way I do it is simple, pick a colour.  Perhaps your daughter has a favourite dress from the past season which you would love to use in the session.  Use the colour of that dress and work your scheme around that.

Perhaps your husband or wife always wears navy.  Let them go with that, and pick colours that work alongside.  Bone/natural colours, maroon, denim etc.  and work it in.

Then of course, if you have chosen to have your images taken in front of your large bougainvillea which is all hot pink right now, best to steer away from the reds.  You do need to consider the environment as well.

I can’t help myself but share more from this session.  Stunning is a word that comes to mind.  Serene, and beautiful.

So many I could share from this session, I don’t know where to start, I had to share more.

Capturing maternal beauty is just such a pleasure.  There is that amazing thought that a little person is going to come into the world.

Wishing you all a happy and enjoyable weekend.  I hope its filled with something beautiful.

I love, love, love photographing people again, and again.

This session was a repeat client, we photographed M and her family a couple of years ago and now I got to photograph them again, this time with another addition (Master P will feature soon), but right now this image was speaking to me waiting to be seen.

There is something magical here.  The light, that gorgeous girl, her amazingly strong personality showing through in her stature, her dress and that instrument – I challenge you to say you don’t want to hear the music within her.

I can’t wait to show you more, but for now, imagine you are sitting amongst those trees listening to her song, its a beautiful one, you can see it in the shadows on her face.

Something amazing happens when your having a second or third or fifth baby.

Don’t get me wrong, something also happens with your first.  The wonder, the anticipation, the nerves and the fear (yes, the fear, I was petrified about the whole process, let alone looking after a newborn afterwards).

But when you have a child already, there is a different feeling.  You are excited, and anticipate what the future holds.  But you also have this sense of calm.  You have been there before, you know what you need to do, generally speaking.

There is also this uncertainty, this question of how it is humanly possible to love another child as much as the ones you have.  How is there that much love inside you to give and share?

Here’s the thing, there is!  You just grow it, right along side your baby.

Family Portrait sessions at Wellington Point make me smile every time.  Such a great location – variety on both sides of the point, sunsets, afternoon breezes. And impossible not to relax and enjoy the afternoon – I have to pinch myself sometimes and remember to work.

These are just a few from a recent family session at Wellington Point.  These fantastic kids purchased a gift voucher for Christmas for their mum who had been planning a session for years.  I’m so glad they did.  It was such a beautiful afternoon at Wellington Point and I had such a great afternoon getting to know this family.

I can’t wait to see their beautiful portraits on their wall.
