Welcoming Baby Domonic | Sydney Newborn Photography

Your life is about to change in the best way! From one mum to another, this is my advice: reflect on today. There’s so much to look forward to, but there’s so much to love about today too.

Newborn Photography has grown into a big trend. You probably know that already. But, did you know that the pictures can go beyond how gorgeous baby looks in all that adorable tiny newborn glory ?

Moments That Matter - March to April | Sydney Family Photographer

Moments That Matter - March to April | Sydney Family Photographer

All this time we were isolated from seeing anyone and spent most of the month indoors. And it got me thinking about Abby. When was the last time her and I spent time alone?  I mean, a real day of connection + life together... visibly showing Abby how much I love spending time with her. I wanted to create some memories with her just one on one time. A day where the she felt special and got lost in the day with their fave people (Dad of course)...

Good Times | Hills District Family Photography

This past month has been eventful. With summer in full swing we have been taking the opportunity to go swimming as much as possible, get out and about and catch up with friends. Coffee dates and shopping trips towards the end of the holidays has been wonderful and its a little sad to know that life is just so busy right now and just wishing for some more time for friends. School has just started back up and its been a little hard on Abby. She has been split up from her friends and with having a new teacher classroom and classmates its all a little too much.

Loui's 1st Birthday | Sydney Family Photographer

Loui's first Birthday

A Documentary Photo Session with Rebecca Overton

I FELT IT WAS VERY IMPORTANT TO CAPTURE LOUI ON HIS FIRST BIRTHDAY. I FEEL I DO NOT TAKE ENOUGH PHOTOS OF HIM THROUGH OUT THE YEAR AND I JUST KNEW THAT JUSTINE WOULD CAPTURE HIM IN A REALLY BEAUTIFUL WAY.

When we woke up on the day Loui was  actually quite unwell. So I was a bit nervous that I  booked Justine in to take photos of Loui and that he was just not going to perform on the day and be happy. More specifically that I wouldn't get the photos that I wanted of him. When I saw the photos it was awesome, there were so many beautiful photos! There were moments of him being happy, sad, sick and miserable but she captured the day perfectly, exactly how it was. That was my main fear to not have any great photos but as soon as I saw them I was so happy. They were all great moments, the good and the sad.

Daniel and I were hesitant at first because we felt that we both don't do well in front of the camera and that we would struggle with any sort of posing. But that's not Justine's style at all and it worked out really well. My husband didn't think taking photos of the day but I had seen Justine do a similar thing for a family member and I just thought it was such a great idea. I put it forward to him and now that he has seen the photos he thinks they are really special. 

I was recommended to have Justine take photos of the day and after seeing her work I felt that I didn't want a photographer that I would need to pose for and get really staged photos. I just wanted someone that would document the day and became the key factor in wanting to book in a photographer.

My goal for the day was to capture Loui as he is today, capture Loui surrounded by everyone who loves him. So I can have those memories, for my husband to have those memories but also something for Loui to have to look back on when he is older as well. Obviously he isn't really going to remember the day so it will be nice to have an album for him to look at and see his first birthday, surrounded by his grandparents, cousins, all of the family. Yeah so just preserve the day I guess. Childhood just goes by and you don't remember half of it so it will be really nice to have those photos to look back on. 

 

Looking back on my fears leading up to the session, there is no point. It was very easy. I didn't even notice Justine there for the day. She just walked around and did her thing and yeah it just was like she wasn't even there. Justine was so easy to work with. My favourite part of the day would have to have been the start of the day when it was just 1:1 time with just me and Loui getting ready and having that more intimate time together. Once the guests started arriving the day just went like that.

It was just really fun the whole time really though, because none if it is really staged you just go about what you have to do. I didn't really feel like I had to do anything different, just going about my day, getting Loui ready, hosting the party and yeah it was easy. I didn't really feel like I had a camera in my face at all, it was really simple. Next thing I knew Justine was saying goodbye and I was like oh I hoped she got good photos! But that was not necessary there were plenty of awesome photos.

On the reveal day, I felt like a blubbering mess. The photos were just beautiful and so much more than what I was expecting. It brought up all these emotions and I am just really really happy with them. For me it just was capturing the day, not staging it, not posing it, just showing it like it is.  100% worth every single cent. Just you know seeing my family in the moment with Loui just captured in such a beautiful way. My mum, in particular is very funny about having photos taken and there were really beautiful photos of her with Loui and she just loves him to death so it is really really nice to see a photo that conveys that love. She never wants to be in front of the camera, always runs away. So to be able to finally have a photo of her with Loui and to be able to give her that is really nice. And not only that, I want Loui to be able to have photos of him with her when he is older, yeah its just beautiful. 

 

I would absolutely do this again, I am already thinking of the next event I can get this done for haha its so well worth it. I'd recommend to anyone thinking of doing it, you will get photos you will be really really happy with

Moments that Matter in November | Sydney Family Photographer

We had a few things going on this month.  we had a whole week of chocolate breakfasts and Dante turned 1! We added cacao powder to our breakfast favourites which included chocolate porridge, chocolate banana smoothies and chocolate pancakes. It was delicious! This is something I was really happy to document as we enjoy cooking together but life gets so busy that sometimes I want to just get through the week cook the basics by myself and get on with my day. This year has gone so incredibly quick, I cannot believe my baby boy has turned 1.

To think I freaked out so much about adding another little human to our family but now I couldn't imagine life without him. Like he is the perfect little piece of the puzzle missing in our life. This year has flown by so fast and he has become the perfect little playmate to Abby. As she is a wonderful big sis to him.

So far he can crawl like a mad man, stand and cruise around. He says Mum, Dada, Beeee (Abby), No no, yuck, Bye and Hello. He loves to play peek a boo, clap hands and play chase games with Abby.

Love my little man and what joy he has brought to our lives

Baby Vivienne

Oh little darling. You are so lucky to have such adorable doting parents. I have been awaiting the arrival of newborn Vivienne since earlier this year. Jessamyn booked me in for a full motherhood package, which means I have been documenting the entire journey. Jessamyn will have gorgeous memories of her pregnancy, time in hospital with just newborn baby Vivienne and life at home with a newborn. Fresh 48 session ( just after birth or within the first 48 hrs) are a wonderful time in your life to capture. I remember myself just lying in hospital bed just doting over the new little human that had been growing inside me. Such an intimate time that you will love looking back on.

Moments that Matter in August

We have been teething over here. All the mums out there at the word will groan with sympathy. Everyone knows how torturous the days of screaming in pain, going through the motions of paracetamol doses, walking the halls and pats on the back as they wimper on your chest. Dante didnt seem too bad with his first two teeth, but the next two. His top teeth have been a nightmare. For 2 weeks now I have had broken sleep. enduring half hour sleep cycles, administering panadol, nurofen and bonjela to try and keep the pain at bay. A hospital trip with temperatures at 40, making me second guess what is wrong. Am I doing it right? Mama Guilt. Thats a actually a  thing right. I hate it. I usually I like to think I make educated decisions through out life and mother guilt makes me second guess every single parenting decision I make. Is he tired? Or too tired? Maybe he is hot? Perhaps Ive made him too hot? Is it teeth or is he sick?Maybe he is hungry. Do they eat healthy enough? I have given too many treats? Was that punishment necessary or was I too harsh?

And we continue on. Feed, cuddle, medicine repeat.
