Giggles and Smiles! | Brisbane Family Photographer

“To hear the laughter of a child,

to wake up with the love of your life,

to know that God has placed them on this earth for you…

you are blessed”- unknown

Giggles and Smiles! These two little characters certainly were. They had me giggling along with them too! The family had been enjoying the visit from Oma for the holidays and spending time at the beach was a favourite pass time.

Playing under the Jacaranda | Brisbane Children and Family Photographer

“What are little girls made of? 

Sugar and spice and all things nice. 

That’s what little girls are made of” – Robert Southey

Dianna was a ball of energy and fun on the afternoon we photographed her. Playing on her swing, hanging off a beautiful Jacaranda in full bloom, in the front of her home. She introduced me to all her favourite friends and showed me how she could spin all the way around like a spinning top. What a gorgeous smile!

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star | Brisbane Chilrden’s Photographer

Well what a little cutie patootie Yenaya is, just look at that smile! Celebrating her 1st Birthday in cake smash style! I was lucky enough to photograph her sister Yenoli 2 years ago for her cake smash and the time she was my best smasher to date. Yenaya was more than ready to knock off that title, can I just say. Right from the moment the cake was placed on the floor, there was no holding her back! Thee was cake from end of the backdrop to the other. She was a star smasher and also really enjoyed splashing around to clean up 🙂

What to Wear for Your Photo Session | Brisbane Family Photographer

Well one of the most asked questions when booking your photo session is “What should we wear?”

Firstly your need to feel comfortable in what you’re wearing because otherwise it will show through in your photos if you’re not. Smiles are much better than grimaces! Secondly you don’t all have to wear the same colour but what does look great is if you all compliment each other.

Layering what you wear looks great in photos and can provide different looks as an item is added or removed. Don’t be afraid to accessorize as this can add colour & texture too. It is, however best to avoid big patterns and bold writing on t-shirts as well character clothes for your children. This can date the look of your photos very quickly.

Little Delights| Brisbane Family Photographer

Three year old girls love to delight in spinning in their pretty dresses, blowing bubbles and playing up for my camera! Sophie did just that during her family session. A little shy at first she quickly warmed to me and we twirled and laughed and blew bubbles 🙂 A great way to spend an afternoon!

Mayes Cottage Moments | Brisbane Family Photography

One beautiful sunny afternoon I headed to the historical Mayes Cottage grounds for this family session. The original hut and sheds, which were built over 100 years ago, were just what The Umstads were looking for as a backdrop for their family photos. We frolicked among the mango and fig trees, sang some really out of tune songs. and captured some great memories for the family to enjoy.
