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 🙂

Living an Active Family Life – Newcastle Family Portrait Photographer

This family were superstars!

An active family, showing them in their true light meant lots of moving around. We walked along the shores of beautiful Lake Macquarie, dodged oyster shells and crawled over boats. They had a blast finding out who could jump the highest (the jury is still out on that decision 😉 ), climbing trees and creating a family pyramid. But of course there was also plenty of time for some lovely, gentle photos showing how much love is shared between them.

This is what a lifestyle portrait session is all about; the family having fun and being their true selves. After all, what you want to see looking back at you from your walls are images that will tell a story and evoke special memories and emotions.

Please enjoy a short video created for this beautiful family:

Happy First Birthday, Nate! – Newcastle Portrait Photographer

Gorgeous little Nate is one of the most chilled-out babies I have ever met. What a delight!

He enjoyed every minute of his party, from being passed around all his adoring relatives and friends, to finding great adventure with the garden hose. But I think his first taste of chocolate cake was a definite highlight 🙂

Mature love – Newcastle Portrait Photographer

As a photographer, I am most often taking photos of gorgeous babies and young children, or blissful young couples dreaming of their futures.

But what about our parents? They also deserve to be celebrated, with their years of caring and experience. There are so many stories to be told in their faces alone.

Besides… older couples displaying their love provides hope for the rest of us!

A portrait sitting could be a great anniversary gift for your loved elders.
