Lost in reverie, I explore him. Tracing his nose lips and cheeks as I discover who this little soul is that is so deeply intertwined with mine. Consumed by an early parenthood blur where nothing else could possibly exist right now.Read More
As a Newborn Photographer, I always get this profound sense of gratitude to witness the unfolding of love and joy a newborn can bring to the family. It was love at first sight and the connection was blossoming into full swing as they exchanged cuddles allowing the flow of oxytocin and serotonin to intoxicate their senses.
Jessamyn and Tony contacted me early on in their pregnancy. Totally elated, nervous, joyful new to be parents. They didnt want to miss a thing. So after a exciting chat we decided to go through this journey- the whole run together. We did a year in the life together.Read More
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 ?Read More
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.

Oh this moment has my heart. From the moment baby Dante had an awareness, the very sight of my dear jackson and Bella babes had him absolutely terrified. And good reason too, Jackson being a Great Dane x Boxer mix, he is enormous! They had to stay at one end of the room and him at the other.
Slowly but surely it went from terrified screams to just spine stiffening as they walked past. Over the months he became used to the sight of them and would just kick his leg at them to shoo away if they got too close. Soon enough they could approach, if they became too close for a sniff Dante would lean back with a 'too higher than though please do not get too close' look on his face.
The time is finally here where he has grown so rapidly and becoming ever so brave at discovering the world around him that now the dogs offer sense of curiosity and thrill to this ever growing void of adventure to my new developing toddler. The dogs, so eager and patient to be loved by this new little human. They wait at the door for him, wanting to sniff, busting to be petted and loved. The look on our golden retriever screams.. 'love me! love me you little human.' So desperate for the affection they clearly have a thirst for. Jackson and Bella have dearly been playmates and guardian to Abby and it makes my heart absolutely sing at the prospect of them accepting their new little adoptive pup. I just cannot wait for them to be able to start enjoying him a little more.

Do you know how safe it feels to fall asleep in your arms?
When I find myself there, pressed against you listening to your heart beat with slowly closing eyes.
Just knowing in this moment. Everything is ok.
I had a wonderful time meeting little Gilyana and his family. He was having a day, with some painful reflux and wind. Mama bear comforted him, Papa Bear comforted him. We managed to get through it with lots of cuddles, capturing some wonderful moments in between.

This month I decided to take some self portraits with Dante and experiment with some shadows. The moments that matter to me this month are about the fact I am really enjoying our time alone at home. He is nearly 6 months old now and he seems to be growing at a super fast pace. I have never been so busy in my life with work and I am feeling the mummy guilt set in. I feel like he was born yesterday and already he is growing into this little personality, wanting to be on the move so so badly. Slow down my baby, don't be so eager to grow so quickly. I may blink and miss something.

I would love to introduce our second child Dante! He came early at 38 weeks and everyone is just smitten. His big sister just wants hold him and cuddle him and I can tell will be a very protective big sister. Dante's entrance to the world was a little bit dramatic, I became quite anemic towards the end and delivery included a Litre of PPH. Despite all that he is such laid back little baby, we are home now and I'm am soaking it all in, so amazed to have our little newborn here with us. Wanting to appreciate every moment, every soft sigh, blonde hair and newborn scent.
