The Khoury Family | Sydney Lifestyle Photographer | Elysium Photography

Each and every one of my clients are total rock stars with their own unique story for me to capture. Often, I meet an extraordinary family that I just connect with and feel like we have known each other for years – this was one such family!

The bond they shared and their tender, devoted parenting mirrored my approach to my own children. We shared a magical afternoon of fun, laughter, games, cuddles and one EPIC SUNSET!! Their gorgeous boys looked so angelic in the afternoon light, and parents, David and Tania, even snuck in some adorable couples shots. In their questionnaire, Tania noted that the boys are very cheeky and smiley – well they did not disappoint there! Their beautiful little smiles and bubbly personalities had me captivated throughout the entire session!

I am super excited to receive their prints and photo album back from my print lab and to see their stunning images displayed in their home for a lifetime of enjoyment! Thank you so much David and Tania for bringing your gorgeous family my way! xx


Carter | 9 Month Baby Milestone Session

9 month old baby boy's big blue eyes

I first got lost in these adorably cheeky blue eyes around 6 months ago. Carter had just had his Christening and his mum wanted some shots of him in his gown (which had come all the way from Millan!) before they moved house, so that they could have that memory of him and their time in their home. I was instantly wrapped around his little finger because of his enormous blue eyes and cheeky little grin.

So fast forward 6 months and his stunning mamma Trish called me up and we chatted about how their newborn session had focused on his bond with daddy, but she wanted something special to document her bond with him. We discussed the possibility of creating some sort of Vogue cover shoot capturing mum and bub together. Since I shoot on location and don’t have a studio, we decided to rent this gorgeous little space from Le Petit Studio Blanc and it could not have been more perfect! Carter was his usual charming self and his mum absolutely rocked the glam look!

We shot for around 3 hours and sweet little Carter did not waver at any point during the entire session! He was such a little champ and thoroughly enjoyed the thrill of being in his birthday suit and playing in mum’s massive tule skirt. Thank you so much to Trish & Carter for inviting me to capture this precious bond between you! xx


A big thanks goes out to Le Petite Studio Blanc for the use of this beautiful natural light studio in Surry Hills, Sydney.
