A Special Little Cake Smash

My youngest niece recently turned one. There was absolutely no way this special occassion was going to pass by without doing a cake smash, especially knowing how much she loves cake!

We also took the opportunity to get some sibling photos, which I just adore. Usually they are both just to too busy to capture them together. They are at such a cute age and are honestly the best of friends. I think you can also see their personalities in the images. My little niece is happy and chilled and always has a little smile on her face. My four year old niece is sassy, a bit of a diva and loves playing it up for the camera.

At the end of our session my four year old niece even paused for a few seconds and let me get a couple of shots of her with her special little friend Woofo, who she has had since birth.

The cake was put together by my sister. Using a premade drip cake from Coles, macaron’s (also from Coles) and some pink fairy floss. It’s a really clever way to get a great looking cake that is also afforable. My sister is pretty clever!

Cake smash setup’s don’t need to be complicated or over the top. I just adore the simplicity of the white backdrop, single large balloon and cake. We found the gorgeous little vine a few weeks ago while browsing in a fabulous little local store Something Special, and just knew it fitted in perfectly with what we had planned.

My cake smash sessions have special pricing and are shot in my studio here in Goulburn. Is your little one turning one soon? I’d love to hear from you. You can contact me here.

Twilight Maternity { Goulburn Maternity Photographer }

I love maternity sessions. When I was pregnant with each of my boys it was never on my radar as a ‘thing’ to do and I was incredibly self conscious of how enormous I felt. I may be only small but I was blessed with rather large babies (especially my last!) and that sure showed. Looking back now and it is definitely something that I wish I had given some thought to.  So I love it when pregnant women come to me and are interested in capturing this amazing time.

Winter is such a gorgeous time to shoot. The short days mean no waiting around until late to make use of the perfect late evening light. This session was held just before 5 and the light was so gentle and pretty. And the colours of the twilight sky were just so gorgeous, we couldn’t have asked for better. We were also lucky enough to capture the rising full moon – just amazing! 

I also love how we were able to include the older brother in our session. He is clearly very excited and proud to be welcoming a new baby in to his family very shortly. He also very obviously adores his mum, and how wonderful to be able to capture that relationship for them.   

Pregnant & considering a maternity session?

For a limited time only if you book a newborn session with me you will also receive a bonus 30 minute maternity session*. This is a great way to celebrate and capture your pregnancy prior to the arrival of your gorgeous little bundle.

Summer Family Mini Session {Goulburn Family Photographer}

I can’t believe I still have sessions to blog from last year! So last year I had a little Christmas themed session for my niece and her little friend, which was followed by a family session for my sister and her family (you can check out the blog HERE). It then sort of evolved into a lightening fast mini session for our friend and her family. We seriously spent about 10 minutes getting these images, which is a miracle really, because sometimes with headstrong little ones it can take them a bit longer to come around to the idea of having a camera in their face. 

Which brings me to the question – is there interest in Autumn mini sessions? Drop me a comment on Facebook or the blog if you are interested.

 

 

Celebrating My First Year In Business {Goulburn Family Photographer}

Back in August, in celebration of my amazing first year in business, I gave away an all inclusive family photo session (including digital negatives and print package). I was completely overwhelmed by the number of people who took the time to enter. Due to some pretty ordinary weather during Spring we actually had a few false starts with our session, but luckily third time was a charm and the weather was perfect. I don’t think I could have gotten any luckier with my winners!

Here are a few of my favourites.

Little Baby L {Goulburn Newborn Photographer}

This gorgeous shoot was organised by a friend of mine for one of her friends who was visiting from Sydney. I was so thankful for the gentle touch of his beautiful big sister, who expertly and gently settled him in to a wonderful deep sleep and we then managed to capture some lovely images.

It’s really ideal to organise your newborn session sometime in baby’s first 2 weeks of life (the early the better). The reason this timing matters is babies are generally sleepier and we are able to pose them in those gorgeous curly ‘womb like’ shots.

Here are just a few of my favourites:

Baby S {Goulburn Newborn Photographer}

I think one of the reasons I love photography so much is that there is always something new to be learnt. And newborn shoots are always so challenging that I feel like I come away learning a bunch of technical stuff (which is awesome) and more importantly something new about myself as a person and the photographer I am always striving to become. I just adored this shoot, so so much. Baby S and his super calm and relaxed mum were an absolute treat to work with.

And continuing the learning theme, this session was actually the catalyst for me doing something I have dreamed about doing for ages, so I’ve bitten the bullet and booked in for an intensive newborn workshop next year with one of my all time favourite baby photographers. I can’t wait!

Late Autumn In Goulburn {Goulburn Family Photographer}

I love long weekends for catching up on neglected tasks – like blogging! This family were such a pleasure to shoot. The boys are so articulate and full of energy. And how gorgeous are the boys outfits. Layers, like their vests, are absolutely perfect for the cooler seasons. Here are just a few of my favourites.

Goulburn Brewery in Autumn {Goulburn Family Photographer}

We have some fantastic locations in and around Goulburn that are perfect for family photo sessions. This recent shoot was held at the Goulburn Brewery. A beautiful location that offers so many different backdrops. My personal favourite is the vine covered wall that in Autumn turns the most stunning shades of red and orange. This family was lovely to work with. The girls had chosen their favourite dresses and they looked beautiful. Here are just a few of my favourites:

Fun, Laughter and Family {Goulburn Family Photographer}

I’ve been hanging to blog this session! It was so fun and relaxed. These two little treasures really know how to have a good laugh, I think you can easily tell that from the photos. We were also really lucky to have their Grandma and Great Grandma join us. Thank you so much for letting me capture some special family memories for you all. Here are just a few of my favourites:

Happy Mother’s Day {Goulburn Family Photographer}

I couldn’t let Mother’s Day slip by without a quick blog post celebrating just a few of the gorgeous mums I have photographed in the past 12 months. They’ve all given their families a wonderful gift by appearing in front of the camera.

I know it’s a bit clichéd but being a mum truly is a tough gig, but like they say the tough things are always worth it. I’m lucky to be the mum of four amazing little boys, who each know exactly how to push me to the brink of my sanity and pull me back again with love and humour (often of the toilet variety). I’m also really lucky to have my mum and sisters, who I all adore and I’ve definitely put it on my (ever-growing) to do list to get some updated photos of us all together.

I hope you’ve all had a fantastic day with the people that matter to you most.
