Lifestyle Mommy and Baby Session | Sunshine Coast Photographer

I met this lovely lady a few months ago when her baby was 6 months old.  We were able to capture some amazing memories then, and we did now when he turned 1 year!  Capturing memories of your children growing up is a wonderful thing to do - prints that hang on the wall for the world to see your love and commitment to your child.  

Beautiful session at Noosa beach!

Enjoy them while they are young....

Lifestyle Newborn session | Sunshine Coast Family photographer

Family lovers, today I have the distinct pleasure of introducing you to baby Elliott Thomalla!  I true gift from above.  Those that know his story, truly know the value of life and the precious gift that he is to his family!  Elliot was born on Christmas eve and only 33 weeks, gestation and weighs just over 5 pounds.  His mom spent 41 days in the hospital as a patient. Elliott spent 6 weeks in NICU and special care nursery after his birth.  It has been a long emotional road for this amazing family.  But the future looks bright,  Elliot is growing stronger every day, and is too precious for words.  He was 9 weeks old at our session. (only 2 and ½ weeks old adjusted!!)

Anyway, as you can see from the pictures below, Elliott, his gorgeous family and I had a wonderful time together. Elliots mom, Ally has been strong and courageous and shows the lengths we go to as mothers to protect and nurture our children.  She has become a wonderful friend and I look forward to watching her children grow up!

                     Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something                        outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is                          the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute                       should be enjoyed and savored.

1st Birthday Celebrations | Sunshine Coast Family photographer

What a delight when this little girl came to me studio for a cake smash session.  I love simple elegance and I like simple props.  This was a naked cake - made by me - which was still very girly and made Isla stand out and be the focus of the attention.  Of course a cake smash would not be anything with out a bath afterwards!!!

Mother and child session | sunshine coast family photographer

I was blown away when my friend called and said she was visiting from New South Wales and especially wanting a Fine art portrait.  I was lucky enough to do her newborn session and it was wonderful to have the updated mother and child to match!  We had a glorious weekend together even with a very sick little boy. Needless to say he is all better not, but you can never plan these things.  However we were still able to get some amazing portraits
