Little Luca | Melbourne Baby Photographer

Here’s a Throw Back Tuesday for you…goodness me look how tiny little Luca looks!  I was looking back through files looking for something and stumbled across these…though, now is as good a time as any to write about Luca and his sweet little face ❤

Nothing is more humbling than being asked to photograph a family more than once. You become part of the family, and photo shoots become more like catch ups with friends more than work with clients.

Just a quick little update of a sweet little man as he recently celebration his first birthday and I couldn’t make it back for that. Luca was just a few weeks old when I photographed him last and I haven’t been able to see him since, so my oh my how he has changed in the last 12 months. The happy little face of his is one to break hearts as he grows I am sure ❤

Photographing him in his home, crawling around on the floor, playing with his toys, while his Mum made me a cup of tea and we chatted about life and all that has happen since we last spoke.

Tash you are such a beautiful friend, I am so grateful that we met all those years ago and I have been privileged to photograph and you and Adam and now Luca many many times. Until next time..

Melbourne Maternity Photographer | On This Day | Rick Family

On This Day in 2015.  When ever I head back to the Adelaide Hills to photograph families who miss me, I try to make as much time as I can to catch up with as many beautiful friends as I can.  It’s always a huge bonus when catching up turns into a maternity photoshoot on the top of a mountain as the sun goes down!

Mel and Lily first joined Baby Club when Lily was just a teeny tiny month or two old, I remember the day they walked in the studio, my own little Lily was still also very tiny, they were just a month apart and I had taken a short break from shooting to feed her between little people.  Mel sat down and we all just sat around chatting, an instant Mother’s Group in the studio.

As they continued to visit each and every month for Baby Club over the years, our friendship grew into something I truly value to this day.  This gorgeous family is one I always make time for on my visits back to Adelaide.

Mel is one incredible beautiful pregnant woman, she grows the most adorable babies and it was an honour to be able to capture her third pregnancy.  It was a little chilly on the top of the mountain, but the most incredible light and stunning view!  Lily picked flowers and danced around, William, the sweet little man had the cutest cheekiest smile and it still amazes me just how much the two children look alike.

The family cuddles are what I live for and I will never grow tired of photographing these guys.  Sadly I couldn’t make it back to town to photograph sweet little Natalia when she arrived, but one day, maybe soon, it should be just about time to update these photos to make it a family of five ❤

Mel and Liam, from Baby Club to your wedding, to all the maternity photos and cake smash sessions, each and every time you have been in front of my camera has been an absolute joy for me and I cannot thank you enough for your support of me behind the camera and for your friendship.  It has meant the world to me.

Melbourne Family Photographer | On This Day | Hutchinson Family

On This Day.  July 4th 2015…how can this session be three years ago already?!  I’d been living in Melbourne for only 10 months and this was I think my 5th visit back to the Adelaide Hills since the move.  It was a tough move for me and for my photography.  All of my friends, my supporters, my SA family were back there and it was difficult for me to find my feet in Montmorency.  Business was slow in Melbourne but it was still booming in Adelaide, especially because of all of the beautiful families who kept coming back to me to help see their children grow.

Sharnie, what can I say about this gorgeous woman and her incredible family?!  We first met WAY back in something like 2012?? Possibly even 2011.  I was trading as Sweet Memory Photography back then and running my monthly Baby Club photoshoots.  Her girls were TINY and we just clicked. Every month they would visit my studio and we would play imaginations in the set ups I had created.  We became friends, we laughed over the girls craziness, my Lily would climb all over me as I photographed them and Sharnie would tell me how excited the girls always were when it was visit Tiff Day and then they wouldn’t want to leave!

So when it came time to get the whole family in front of the camera again, of course any excuse to head back to Adelaide was a good one, but this time, little Man Thomas was on the scene.  A brand new family member who sadly didn’t get to join in the Baby Club fun, but he was absolutely going to be part of their family photoshoot.  The first as a family of 5.

We met on the family farm in the Adelaide Hills, shortly before the sun went down.  Golden Hour, my favourite hour.  The girls were completely adorable and SO excited to see me, seeing them was like seeing my own nieces and I am cool Aunty Tiff.  Jasmine looking like her superhero self in her batman cape and Olivia and her big bright blue eyes and cheeky smile.  Thomas…well what can I say about those cheeks, not to mention the deliciously adorable little suit he was in…welcome to the family little Man, oh I could cuddle you forever!!

We played games and had cuddles, they showed off with all their showing off abilities and I completely lapped it up.  We hid amongst the trees, jumped on the four wheeler for a pose or two, ventured down the hill to the rail line and the then back up the hill for what is to this day, one of my absolute favourite photos I have ever taken.

Hutchinson Family, I know we have seen each other since this day and your family has grown by two more little feet, but a look back on memory lane is always fun for a Wednesday morning.  Thank you for being one of the first families to welcome me back home and for continuing to do so as the years go by.  I will never grow tired of photographing you all, and absolutely love my time with you and your little people.  Jasmine and Olivia, It melts my heart completely that you miss me when I am gone and count down the days til we see each other again.

Happy Farm Day Family Photoshoot Anniversary guys.  Much Love.
