the hsu family | blessed

Yesterday I spent a cold and foggy afternoon with this adorable family in one of my absolute favourite places, Blackheath, in the Blue Mountains, NSW. As I drove up the mountain I watched the temperature gauge in my car plummet, but the moment I stepped outside and felt the cool, misty rain on my face and smelt the smoke of wood burning fires in the air I knew that nothing was going to stop this session from being everything we had anticipated it to be. Warm baths, gorgeous country road knits, hunter boots, cuddles on the lounge and just spending time loving on one another made for the perfect winter day session to capture this beautiful family and baby Aria at such an adorable age.

the warren family | blessed

When beautiful May contacted me asking if I would photograph her and her family in the last few weeks of her pregnancy I don’t think either of us imagined this. Due to some crazy weather and little boy who seemed like he could make an appearance any moment what was originally planned to be a maternity session on the beach turned into a beautiful, intimate session in the family home.

When I first arrived it was absolutely pouring with rain and it was a race to even get inside without getting completely drenched! Thankfully a gorgeous hidden courtyard and a few lucky breaks in the weather and we were able to create this amazing set of portraits that I think capture this gorgeous family as they waited for baby Edward to make an appearance so perfectly. Relaxed, romantic and a little bit of cheeky thanks to little miss Mia turned out to be the perfect combination.

tina + rory | beloved

These two chose Palm Beach, NSW, one of my absolute favourite places in the entire world, for their beloved session. Even with the fire damage that sadly occurred recently it is still one of the most beautiful places I know. Full of amazing hidden places, sand dunes, lush plants and incredible views. For as popular as the location is (they even film parts of Home & Away here) you can always find the perfect place to be all alone and I love that.

We took the whole afternoon to play, explore and walk up giant hills until we were out of breath, but I knew within minutes that all of it would be worth it. For two people who told me they were not used to being in front of a camera I think they did more than ok. Tina and Rory, you are completely wonderful and simply cannot wait for your wedding. It is fast approaching!
