I’m not even sure I have the words to describe how I feel about this family. All I can say is that their love for one another is infectious. This family light up their home with laughter, joy and lots of amazing cuddles. I wanted to take all the kids home to be mine because they are all such polite and beautiful little humans. Little Rose didn’t really want to know me at first but that lasted about 30 seconds. At the end of the session she said “Why is Kate weaving? I wove her.”. Bless! It must be a crazy household with 4 children but if this is what having 4 kids looks like… I think I might have converted to wanting a big family!
Kat, Ned and their gorgeous Rhodesian Ridgeback Scout are expecting a new arrival soon. Kat was 32 weeks at the time of this shoot and absolutely glowing with excitement and gorgeous mama vibes. I’ve known Kat and Ned for a while and was so thrilled when I heard they were expecting. They are just the most wonderful couple together. They are playful, down to earth, adventurous and just a little bit crazy. My kind of people. They are also madly in love with each other and are going to make the best parents! This kid is such a smart cookie to have chosen Ned, Kat and Scout to be his or her family. It truly was my honour to photograph you guys and I wish you so much joy and happiness over the coming weeks and months.
This session was filled with the sounds and love of two big sisters excited to have a new little sister. What a lucky baby Mia is to be born into such a loving and kind family.

Lifestyle photography isn’t about the “perfect” family, the “perfect” moments, the stylised photograph or holding a post “just right”. Lifestyle photography is all about the moment’s in-between. The stuff that looks squishy, imperfect and slightly crazy. It comes with a side dish of amazing light, fun, laughter, candid moments; the “grandparent shot” (looking at the camera) and camera angles that still make you look amazing. It’s the touch of a sibling on a fresh baby’s head, it’s a big sister holding her baby brother with the proudest smile you have ever seen, it’s tiny bits of skin flaking off newborn feet, it’s a scrunched up babe resting on mama’s chest, it’s stopping to smell the roses not once but twice, it’s the feeling you get when you think of how much it hurts to love them.
