I photographed Luca's big sister when she was a newborn and feel so honoured to be able to capture this next chapter of E & C's lives.
We spent a lovely afternoon together taking turns to snuggle Luca (although if I'm honest I would have loved to hog all the cuddles the entire time)
Together we designed the most beautiful album that I am sure will be treasured for many years to come.
Below is a selection from Little Luca's Newborn Portrait Session.
Time to play a bit of catch up on my blog!
This little girl was the BEST sleeper so we got to play with a lot of setups!
I was super excited to try out my new fabric dream catcher I made only the week before.
This little cherub's great grandmother knitted her a gorgeous blanket which we added into a few shots!
What's your favourite image? I can't decide!!

I can't believe it's almost been a year since my husband & I welcomed these two little rugrats into the world! Now what sort of photographer would I be if I didn't do a cake smash session for my own children?
I am very surprised these boys kept so clean! I was prepared for cake EVERYWHERE!
I like to think they will stay this clean forever! ;)
You may be wondering who made these fantastic cakes.. well I'm rather proud to say that it was all me! (and lots of advice from a friend or two... and perhaps a few practice runs)
Special thanks to my husband for forcing you to eat all the leftover cake & to my dear friend Cat for helping with the session.
Tully's mum contacted me a couple of weeks after his birth to book me in for a photo-shoot. She was hoping for some simple, natural images of Tully so when the day came, we opted for less props & used natural tones for the blankets. We popped in a bit of colour with wraps & hats & ended up with some gorgeous, natural images.
Tully was a very healthy 9lb 10 at birth & by the time I got to meet him, he was just so gorgeous & squishy!
As some of you may know already, I really love parents bringing along something personal to their shoot.
Tully's dad is a bit of a Cats fan, so we snapped a few simple shots of Tully with a itty bitty Geelong scarf.
Here's a few shots from our shoot. :)

I am a little slow with my blog, so this will have to be a very short one!
I had so much fun during this shoot & loved how the whole family were so natural in front of the camera!
Tumay just adores his little brother, Leigh - as I am sure you can tell by these images.
