Photographer for LIFE

14 January 2019

You will often hear me talk about my clients calling me their 'Photographer for LIFE'. This is not a phrase I though up …. rather, it's something they organically call me. Something which seems to fit for those who come back year after year for Family Portraits. For me, it's an absolute HONOUR to be regarded in this way. These 'clients for life' as I call them back become part of my extended family in a way, allowing me to take such a special journey with them during their family story. Never, when I started my Photography business, did I imagine I would meet so many AMAZING people and share in so many BEAUTIFUL stories! I honestly could not imagine doing anything else!

Some of you will recognise Amanda and her adorable family from earlier blog entries. I captured Amanda And Nelly's Wedding several years ago now. Since then I've captured three maternity sessions, yearly Santa sessions and, now, three gorgeous Newborn sessions for them. After two boys, I was so excited to hear that they were having a girl this time around… though I knew this also meant I had my work cut out for me in the studio. Newborn baby girls are so much more alert than boys. This means that getting those 'sleepy' shots can take a little more coaxing …. but it's so worth that extra time and love for sure.

Enjoy this little peak into the life of this beautiful family, as I share with you some of my favourite images from this piece of their story.


Amanda is such a beautiful soul ….


There's always time for a funny photo with these guys.


Suns out… guns out boys! What a fun capture!


We've shot this pose with all three kiddies now…. though, this time, we added both sets of hands rather than just the individual ones for Mum & Dad. I LOVE the combined Mum & Dad Simba Shot!
