Family Portrait, Newborn Photography Brisbane

“Take a look down at your baby.”  That’s all that needed to be said.  Nothing more.  No “look at her with love”, or “remember when you first met” – nothing, its all there in your heart.

When two parents take a moment to appreciate what they have created together this precious little life, this gift which fills their hearts with joy, this image is what happens.

The magic, happens.

I pressed the shutter, and made a memory.

Today, was beautiful.  Can not wait to show them more from their session.

Family Portrait Photography, Brisbane

I have so much to share about this family, and not enough words.

Words that describe the pure joy when a mum looks at their child with that look of pride and love.

Words that do justice to a grandma’s patience, comfort and joy with spending time with her grandchildren.

Words to paint a picture of a dad’s happiness when surrounded by everything he treasures.

Words that are able to show a child’s love for trees and another’s ability to see trolls and another’s pure wonder at the tinest flower.

For these precious moments, I have no words.

Fortunately, I do have photographs.  I was so fortunate to capture these.

Ramblings about Family photography goodness, Children Photographer, Brisbane

Forgive my ramblings on children and photography location today, but its been a while between posts.

Some days I stumble upon a location for a great family photography session quite by accident.  Sometimes, one of my clients has a specific spot we like to photograph at, sentimental reasons usually come into play.  The family have spent time there all together growing up, for example.  Sometimes, I see a location, and think, I’ll have to remember this spot for the future.  Lots of different things come into play when it comes to a location for a photography session.

This particular photography location I have run past at least once a week for the past 5 years, and not once have I thought to suggest it, until now.  I love running through the bush behind our place at Chapel Hill.  Nothing clears my head more than some time spent in the quiet surrounded by trees, the cockatoos and the occasional galah (I am referring to the birds btw). I do find some great locations at times, but there is usually a trade off of some sort.    Access is bad, or its busy with people all the time etc.  Not here, no trade offs to be had.  Just beautiful light, a beautiful backdrop (looking out towards Ipswich) and plenty of different spots to play with and get some beautiful images.

These boys were such a gem to photograph.  Personality for me in front of the lens doesn’t necessarily mean the joker is always centre of attention.  So different in their ways, yet so connected.  One the quiet type, happy to watch on and stay quiet.  Whereas the other, ready to be front and centre, just ask the question and he is there. Sometimes its difficult to see, until you make the time to stop and look.   I’m so glad we did, and I’m so glad we found this location too.  A combination of beautiful styling (nice work mum), great family and a fantastic location pulling out all the stops.

Everyone kicks a goal 🙂

Mum’s, Family Portrait Brisbane

Mum’s, its time to get in the picture.

And yes, I’m talking to all of you mums who run away from the camera, as well as the dad’s who allow it to happen and the kids that don’t ask for it.

“We’ll get photos done when I loose some weight.”

“I don’t need to be in the photos.”

“I am so not photogenic”

Mother and Daughter Portrait Photograph, Brisbane

Well here’s a newsflash mum’s, one thing I’ve learnt this week is that there are no guarantees for tomorrow, and these photos you are putting off, they aren’t really about you, even though you are required to be in them.

I’ll stop being so brutally cryptic, but in all honesty, these photos are for your kids and they want you in them.   They aren’t looking at your tuck shop lady arms, your regrowth which should have been dealt with weeks ago but hey, who has had time for that. They want to see that amazing radiant smile you have which makes them feel warm and loved inside. They don’t see the stuff that your self critical eye see, they really only see their beautiful mum looking at them with love in their eyes, and warmth in her heart.

Think about your own mum or your husband/partners mum, don’t you wish you had beautiful images with her from when you were a kid? I have some great images with my mum now, but I desperately wish I had some more from when I was a kid.

Its time mums, to get yourself on the other side of the camera and be present and accounted for.    Let’s get you on the wall and show these kids who has their back.

To make that easier for you and for those who wish to facilitate it, every Mothers Day gift voucher purchased between now and Mother’s Day will receive a complimentary desk-size print valued at $90-00.  Just be sure to tell me its for Mother’s Day so I make sure its added to the voucher.
