One big happy family | Canberra Family Photographer

I love shooting in places that have significant meaning for my clients. So when I was invited on the family property, complete with kangaroos bouncing in their backyard, and at a pivotal time prior to adult children flying the nest, I knew that this was going to be a special shoot.

Happy New Year | Sydney Family Photographer

Spent the first day of 2012 with this loving family. Big brother love was undeniable and an absolute joy to witness.

I love the perfectly co-ordinated navy/blue outfits for the family. Well done, mum! And little Aanya’s lilac dress came all the way from England from a very special aunty.

A day at the beach | Sydney kids photography

Time to shoot the other creative half of Simply Stunning. Shona, feels like we have been planning this day forever. First in Sydney, then in Canberra, and then back in Sydney again. Had a fun time hanging out with your family, and sharing fish and chips by the beach. Bring on summer!

Family Dynamics | Canberra family photographer

There is something I love about this one…

So when mum and dad sneak in a kiss (unprompted by me, mind you), all I could hear was “ewww…gross”

Double digits of married years…who would have guessed?

When planning this shoot, I was racking my brain, trying to come up with something unique to them as a family, perhaps something of their culture… and then I had it…greek dancing. I stashed it away in my head as a possibility, uncertain of the potential embarrassment factor…public place, no music etc. But when I timidly suggested it, they WENT for it and had me in stitches. I had no idea I was going to be met with such enthusiasm :) Thanks for being such good sports. You guys are such a hoot!canberra family photosfamily tacklecanberra family portraitscanberra candid portraits

I love the dynamic within this family. They have something extraordinary and hope that I have done some justice in trying to capture it, especially as  it will be awhiles before they will be together again like this. Oh, and don’t forget to pack me in your suitcase for your reunion in Greece in 2013!

Bubbly | Canberra Baby Photographer

Dear Isla & James, it’s been so wonderful to watch you grow.baby girl with lanternsbaby girl with umbrellachild photography

“Cause every time I see your bubbly face, I get tingles in a silly place…

It starts in my toes, and I crinkle my nose…

Cause you make me smile, wherever you go”

When I bought this pretty dress for Isla when she was born, I couldn’t resist purchasing a matching one for Kiki. Every time the girls are together, we take a pic in their twin dresses.

Flashback to a few months ago, when we travelled up to the central coast to visit our dear friends and meet their new bundle of joy.

Luv you guys xx
