Jack [lollipop]

While I was doing Jack's easter photos on Sunday, I thought I would do another little shoot with a big lollipop too! Jack isn't usually allowed lollipops, every other sweet under the sun is ok, I am just funny about lollipops! So I think he thought it was his birthday today when I pulled out this yummy looking one! He had a great old time eating it, and before he knew it Mummy was a big old meanie and put it away! Until recently, I haven't gotten too many 'fantastic' (ie. photographer worthy photos that aren't snapshots) of him, but I have been going to great lengths to make sure I get heaps lately, and these are some of my favourites, I love the colouring and greens in them. My boy has grown up way too fast, he is just too cute for words :)

Jack [easter]

I keep meaning to take my son Jack out for some Easter photos, and I finally did it last Sunday! We brought 3 baby chickens last weekend, so I wanted to get the photos done before they got too much bigger, they are growing so fast! Jack absolutely loves the chicks, he has named them all on his own, no help at all, and they are called : Din Din (dinner)(the black one), Chick Chick, and Chicky Babe. It sounds so cute when he says ni ni to them all before bed :)
He kept thinking he could eat the pretend easter eggs today, and got a rude shock when he bit into foam, needless to say-I promised him a real chocolate egg when we got home!
Rest assured that no animals were harmed during this photo shoot, and we are keeping them for pets :)

Erich [baby]

Last weekend I met with Sacha and her adorable little 3 month old boy, Erich. Poor little Erich (and his mummy and daddy) hasn't had the best start to his life, with him being in hospital a few times, and being quite sore and unsettled :( I am really happy to have captured these beautiful photos of him, being all cute and happy though! He had his ups and downs (as does any baby!) but we persisted and got lots of great photos! He was pulling some of the cutest smiles, and must make his parents hearts melt! Here is a little sneak peak at your photos guys, I hope you love them :) And hang in there, it will all get better soon, so try to make the most of this hard time :)

Jamie + Courtney [love]

On Sunday I went out with Jamie and Courtney (in this miserable, rainy weather!) and got heaps of shots of them being all cute and lovey together, and I had heaps of fun doing so! There was a couple of awkard moments, with people staring (ie. a bus interchange full!) but we got there in the end! I absolutely loved Courtneys killer heels (I have no idea how she walks in them! I struggle just in thongs!) but they matched her killer legs perfectly! And Jamie-he's a pro in front of the camera too, I definitely think his calling is right in front of the lens :)

I can't believe how much air they got jumping in front of the graffiti wall, and it turned out awesome!
I really love these spots we shot at today!

I have so many favourites with all of my shoots lately, that I just can't pick a couple for the web, so once again here are many, many photos to have a peek at. Hope you love your pics guys, can't wait to take some more again next weekend! (oh, and this isn't even one-third of your shots from this session!) xo

The Moore-Leotta Family

It was out to Warwick on Sunday to do another shoot for these guys, I did their family shots when little Ken was a newborn only 3 months ago, so it was time for some more because he has grown so much! The forecast was for rain, but we thought we would risk it anyway, and after we got to the location, unloaded and set up for the first shot, it started pouring! So we packed everything up and drove around until it stopped, which wasn't too long. We headed back to the spot and snapped away! It showered on and off, but as a bonus, it made for really beautiful lighting! Definitely wasn't my easiest shoot, little VJ hates photos (as does most 3 year old boys!), so the photos are about as natural as you can get! Lillian who has just started Prep just loves me taking her photos, she is always posing for me, and then wanting to see the photo afterwards, and even takes a few good shots herself!
We decided I need a little turn table to sit on to spin around really quick when the kids are running so fast! I am really happy with this shoot and have many photos to edit, so here are a fair few to get you by guys! Thanks again guys for getting me to capture these precious moments with your beautiful little family :)

The Plowman-Whyatt Family

On Saturday, I headed back over to the Japanese Gardens to meet Rebekah, Russ and Connor to take their first ever family photos. It was so easy taking their photos, I love it when I am at a shoot and we can just chat like old friends, it makes the whole shoot so easy, and more relaxed, and then-I get photos like these! Connor took a while to warm to getting his photos taken, but as soon as his Daddy got out a ball, that was it-we got smiles and giggles galore! And aren't they just the sweetest smiles ever?! Thankyou so much for asking me to take your first family portraits, I had so much fun and I hope that these photos are just what you hoped for plus much much more! I know I am extremely happy with them, and have definitely got some of my best ever shots :)
I have way too many favourites, so here is a very big share of the ones I have edited so far!
