Three Cheers for the Birthday Boy – Lifestyle Portrait Photographer in Newcastle, NSW

I was lucky enough to photograph Nate’s first two birthdays, so it was lovely to also capture number three. The toddler has disappeared and has been replaced with a busy, chatty, friendly young boy who curiously and excitedly asked, “What’s in there?” every time somebody walked in with a brightly-wrapped present.

But three year olds don’t stay still, and certainly not when there are little friends to play with, a new sandpit to explore, exciting birthday presents, and – of course – a great cake in Nate’s (current) favourite colour! So please enjoy Nate’s busy third birthday.

Happy birthday, Nate!

The Collibee Family – Family Portrait Photographer in Newcastle, NSW

Shortly after I posted a selection of photos to my Facebook page from this family’s session, I was speaking to somebody who told me how much love she could see in those photos. She noted the family appeared to really enjoy each other’s company.

That was how it felt on the day.

Coming together to celebrate their mother and matriarch, they warmly welcomed me into their home on a beautiful lakeside property (what a fantastic spot) where I was privileged to capture them all simply appreciating being together.

Lots of special ‘Happy Birthday’ wishes to Di xx

The McNamara Family – Family Portrait Photographer in Newcastle NSW

When I was growing up, we were always surrounded by family. Not only my own grandparents, aunties, uncles and cousins, but also Mum’s cousins and all their kids. Most of my fondest memories of my childhood somehow involve my cousins and I know how special it was to grow up with them all around me.

This lovely family is headlined by two beautiful, generous parents who have been lucky enough to raise four daughters who are all bringing up their own families still in the same city. They understand each other, they finish each others’ sentences and they work together with ease. The younger generation have a natural closeness that is evidence of their love for each other and the way the older kids watch out for the little ones was a joy to witness.

I thank them for allowing me to disturb the equilibrium for a short time while we captured these special memories.

Happy Birthday, Nate! – Lifestyle Portrait Photographer in Newcastle, NSW

It has been a while between blog posts, because I have been out of action with a shoulder that required surgery and then froze. Until recently, I haven’t been able to lift my heavy camera gear, but I am now seeing an increase in strength every day so am getting back into the swing of things.

What a lovely welcome back to photographing… recording for posterity Master Nate’s second birthday. I was also honoured to photograph his first birthday, so it was wonderful to catch up with him again and see how he has grown. Nate is a loving, gentle and inquisitive little boy who takes challenges in his stride and has a smile for everybody. He was very excited about the penguin cake made for him by his mummy.

Happy birthday, Nate 🙂
