Newlife Family session | Bundaburg | Sunshine Coast Photographer

I was lucky enough to travel to Bundaburg to photograph a special family.  A family full of love and kindness, who made me feel so at home and at ease in their home and environment.  We were able to capture, the regular newborn images (when the older children were at school), but we had a stunning location to visit in the evening to capture some magical family images with all the children together.....scroll down further to see the outdoor session.

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. Earl Nightingale

This is 6 day old Elizabeth. So cute and perfect in every way.

It was a pleasure to meet her and her family, and see them on the journey with a newlife. Seeing mum with her gorgrous belly then only a few weeks later meeting the precious new bundle. I wish them the world of happiness.

I had the pleasure to travelling to Sydney at the beginning of the month to meet my gorgeous little niece, Marley!  Only 4 days old  I packed up one large suite case full of blankets and wraps, along with my laptop and camera!  Believe me, when you are flying you are very limited to the amount you can take.  I was able to work in natural light using their couch as my beanbag!    That all said, she was a dream baby!  She is perfect in every way possible – and she has a very proud mum and dad!  I am so grateful and blessed that I was able to do this for her!

Little girl.  Great big world.  Tiny feet.  Set off and explore.  Sleepy eyes.  Dream big dreams. Mama’s here.  All you need.
