family and the everyday

Kind words | Natural family photography capturing emotion

When this email landed in my inbox I thought my heart would burst! Can't thank-you enough Zoe, could totally squeeze you both right now! May the good vibes come straight back to you! 

"I had a photo session by you with my son Aiden and I back in late 2013 and absolulety love love love the natural and relaxed way you captured us both. I remember being a little nervous about the shoot as it was just my son and I but you were soo lovely as soon as I met you I just felt at ease and to this day Aiden still carries around the mini photo book we got with the package, he packs it in his suitcase every time he has a sleepover!
So a lot has happened since our last meeting and I'm now engaged! I haven't yet set a date, time, venue, sorted a dress or any of the important details you need to do in preparing for a wedding however the one thing I don't need to give any thought to is choosing a photographer as I know I'd love to have you!" Zoe.

Lazy mornings | Relaxed documentary family photography Sydney, Central Coast

Happiness is…when your clients spontaneously do this at Manly Beach! Thank-you so much for just being yourselves and letting your personalities shine!

We spent such a relaxed morning together, as I documented those fleeting every day moments that are all too easily forgotten. Here is Alicia, Nick and Evelyn’s story…full of the best parts of parenthood (and minus the tears and sleep deprivation 😉 ) Because after all, this is what we will choose to remember in the years to come…

Our aussie adventure | Beloved couples photographer Central Coast, Sydney, Hunter Valley

How on earth Claudia and Tobias managed to find me on their round-the-world travels I have no idea, but I’m so glad they did! They stopped by our beautiful Central Coast to capture some memories of their time in Australia, and I got to jealously hear about their amazing adventures! It turns out we have a lot in common…our German backgrounds, our love of all things vintage, and Claudia and I even share the same birthday, a couple of days after our shoot would you believe? It was an absolute pleasure getting to know you both and till next time in Germany!

A day in the life of Quanchai, Shawn + Bella | Documentary style family photography Central Coast, Sydney

You know how you have friends who you don’t see for ages, but when you do you can pick up right where you left off and it’s like no time has passed at all…well this my lovely friend Quanchai, from way back in the backpacking days, when the world was our oyster and we had no idea what adventures life would throw at us…now she has a gorgeous family of her own (including Bella, a little foodie in the making!), and we spent the afternoon together capturing the simple everyday things that they love the most…

Sunrise | Natural light candid family photographer Central Coast

“This is a very happy time for all of us. Every day is special and fun in it’s own way”. I just adore this Mummy’s description of her family, they are the kind of words that make a photographer’s heart sing. Here is a little peek into one of those happy days; sand, surf, early morning swim, wrestles with Daddy, cuddles and laughter, leaving for home exhausted and covered in salt and sand. Thank-you so much for having me along to capture a little of your family story xoxo. Oh, and did I mention the light?:-)Definitely worth getting up before sunrise for light like this!
