Baby Frank | Sydney Lifestyle Newborn Photographer | Elysium Photography

This is the third time I’ve been blessed with documenting this beautiful little family. I first met them when Bella turned one and they wanted to capture the milestone with a photo session. Then again when she turned two, we headed to the beach for a session with sand, sunsets and fun! Now, they have added one more to the tribe – gorgeous little Frank! Our newborn photo session was a hoot, with giggles, bed jumping and a marvellous game of hide and seek under Bella’s blankie! Frank was absolutely not interested in having his scheduled sleep time, but instead wanted to watch my every move, totally transfixed by my camera. He finally gave in to sleep – right in the final 5 minutes of our session!

Thank you again Rignanese Family for inviting me to record so many wonderful memories for you, and for the long chats and coffee!

I was blessed with the honour of photographing this beautiful couple’s wedding just over a year ago, and was recently blessed again with documenting their newest addition, sweet little Eveleigh!

During their in-home lifestyle photography session, we were joined with Adam’s two older daughters, as well as Adam & Jenna’s first daughter, Estelle. They had a marvellous time admiring Eveleigh’s tiny features, giggling at how much fun it was to sit in dad’s lap (even if they thought they were too big to fit) and enjoying some cuddly time with the new little sister they are clearly besotted with! Their close and connected bond was certainly evident in each and every image we captured!

Thank you Adam and Jenna for asking me to document this incredible new chapter in your lives! I am truly humbled with being able to witness your little family growing!

From my very first communication with Diane, I just knew this was going to be a fun session! 3 littlies under 3 would mean I’d be kept on my toes! In my client questionnaire, Diane mentioned that “We would like to remember the happiness and youth of our children – like the way they run and play. The way they show each other love. The way we show them love (which as adults they will know but not necessarily remember) – kisses, cuddles etc the joy of us as a family”. Such a great answer! I couldn’t wait to capture this special new chapter for them and convey their relationship and family bond.

Baz and Ivy with their cheeky little smiles and cracker of a personality both had me in stitches with their antics. So full of energy, they had me tearing about this grassy field trying to keep up with them! Then taking energy levels down a notch, they each showed such a tender and caring side towards their little sister, Evie – sitting in mums lap and stroking her head, or gently holding her tiny hands.

Even dad, Glenn, enjoyed the session. He was such a trooper keeping up with the kids energy levels, spinning them around and around, zooming them like aeroplanes – I think he was extremely relieved to sit down for some quiet cuddles after that!

Thank you Diane for bringing your gorgeous little family out for me to photograph! x

 

Baby Gilly | Sydney Newborn Photographer

This darling little girl is so very treasured! I’ll bet your reading this and thinking “yeah, I bet you say that about all the newborns you photograph”. Well you see, this sweet little one is extra special – she is surrounded by the love of 10 siblings (yes, you read that correctly… 10 incredible children!) as well as an angel sibling to watch over her.

Gilly’s supermum, Belinda, and I have known each other since high school, so it was such a rewarding experience to bless her beautiful family with these images. I went into this session with the certainty that I would shoot the whole thing specifically for black & white. You see, when an image is black & white, it forces you to focus on the details and emotional connection, rather than being distracted by different elements in a colour image. All her dear little newborn features are preserved for an eternity!

At just 18 days new, little Cooper certainly had his charming talents perfected. He was so alert yet calm and relaxed the entire session, that we even managed to capture him in dad’s hands awake and still – not an easy thing, even with a sleepy bub!

I had the pleasure of photographing Jason and Natara when they got married in March 2017, so when I received a message from Natara asking if I would come and capture their newest addition, I was beyond thrilled! Entering their gorgeous home to see so many of my favourite images from their wedding day framed on their walls was so humbling.

Their wonderful home yielded so many amazing little nooks of photographer gold! We shot everywhere – bedrooms, hallway and even the kitchen. Their beautiful loving connections was so perfectly captured in every little moment spend with Cooper. He is truly surrounded by so much love! Thanks Jason & Natara for inviting me to once again capture your books newest chapter! xx
