When character shines through.

I mentioned in an early post how much fun this particular session was. Theo is around the same age as one of my own boys and so full of life and fun. He was climbing up wall, trees, surfing on logs and you would have seen in the blog post recently how many different faces you can get out of him in a very short space of time! Theo's Mum just glows in front of the camera - I simply couldn't understand why she was as anxious as she was about having photos taken but there was no reason at all to worry. It was lovely to see the special connection between Mother and Son.

Pure joy {Brisbane Family Photographer}

Pure joy is what I see in this Mum's face whenever she looks at her daughter. It's beautiful. I love seeing (and photographing) the joy and adoration between parents and their children - it's always something special.

I first met Kristy and Dan earlier this year when Kristy booked me to photograph her friends 30th. It was such a fun night and I was so pleased when she contacted me about taking some family portraits. Poor little Lara broke out in a nasty rash the day prior to our session however with a little TLC in Photoshop the rash is barely noticeable in the resulting images. Oh and I had to include the last shot, it just cracks me up every time I look at it! Lara had apparently just learnt to frown so I was lucky enough to catch a few adorable frowns on camera ;)
