Bobbi

35 weeks & glowing. Here is a snippet of Bobbi’s gallery.

This location is epic!! All of these are taken in the one spot down in the Northern Rivers. Living only 5 minutes from this location it was the perfect fit.

It was a little chilly by the ocean but we all braved the weather and I photographed the most magical moments. Bobbi and Jarryd were up for a little walk, so we went up to the cliffs and took in those epic views.

The kimonos are available for your session and partners and children are always welcome.

Lore Of the Sea

Epic location - I love the natural and lifestyle feel of the shoot. Making your brand relatable to others so they make a purchase is my goal!!

When we start working together, I ask for a moodboard or some kind of inspiration colour pallet. It is a perfect starting point. I also love having an ongoing relationship. It bring consistency to your socials, and most importantly, people will start to recognise your brand without looking at the name.

Most shoots are planned weeks, or even months in advance. Making sure your shoot is polished also helps, whether it is hiring an air BNB, selecting a new paper roll colour (I already have a variety in studio to choose from), organising hair and make up. I happen to work with a beautiful team and have a range of contacts.

Much Love

Seriously how cute!!

These two beautiful souls got married overseas and couldn’t include their two furry family members.

It was lovely to hang out and relax. These cooler months are perfect for sessions. The sun is setting earlier and grass is brown!!

Family

Rolling hills, gorgeous sunset and this family!! Another magic afternoon in the Northern Rivers Hinterland.

I always strive to find the most beautiful and unique locations, sometimes i have to knock on a couple doors and ask if I can use their private property. In return for their generosity, I usually gift the family a session as a thank you.

Isla

Sweet little Isla.

I love being able to mix a little lifestyle and a little posed together. Your little one grows and changes so much in the first year. You will be able to look back on the these moments forever.

These sessions are perfect if you would like to do something different and wear your gown again.

Mama Village

Our very first 'Mama Village' interview. Together Halo & Horns and myself have  joined forces to show case all things Motherhood. 

First up, we interviewed Kirstie & her beautiful girls. We hung out with them in their beautiful relaxed home, where the girls were able to be just themselves.

Motherhood by Kirstie Lucas -

Motherhood is unequivocal love, I want the absolute best for my children, to give them everything I didn’t have and more. I want to raise my girls to be the best versions of themselves, to grow up to be independent women and to love themselves. For a long time I believed that motherhood was sefless, we give up our bodies, our jobs, our sleep and we always put our children’s needs before our own. However, after being at home with my girls for the last 3.5 years I have come to realise that motherhood isn’t just putting the needs of others before yours, it is finding the balance between selflessness and selfishness because our needs are important too, perhaps even the most important. My girls don’t care if the house is a mess, or if the washing pile is almost touching the roof but they do notice when I am in a bad mood, or my patience is thin, and my three year old will tell me often tell me to stop being grumpy! This is why in the last few months I have been making more of an effort to find time to myself, and focus on doing things that makes me happy as an individual outside of being a mother. 

              Photography has been a huge passion of mine since my first daughter Isla was born, it has been a creative outlet which has helped keep me sane during the long days at home, and the nights where my hubby (Matt) is working away and late last year I decided to take a huge leap and turn my love for photography into a business. At the moment I am still learning to juggle everything, Matt has a quite a demanding job, and although we are lucky he can work from home he often works late nights, as well working interstate and overseas at times. We also have limited support, as most of our family live interstate so when Matt is away it’s basically just me at home with my girls, and the days can be very long, and sometimes despite never actually being alone, it can feel very lonely. However, starting my business satisfies my need for a creative outlet, as well giving me a goal to focus on which I think I was previously lacking. As much as I love my girls, it has been a breath of fresh air to spend a little time away from them, and when I am on a photoshoot I feel a sense of freedom and always leave on such a high ready to get back to my family and squish them to pieces with love. I’m not quite sure if I found the perfect balance yet, I still have my grumpy days, I am after all only human! But since changing my mindset I have definitely gained back a bit of individuality that was lost and in turn become a better mother for it.

B U M P - Naomi + Rob

A session where the glow from the sun brought down the most beautiful rays, the ocean rolled in gentle waves and where a photograph really does tell a 1000 words.

A fairy tale day out the back of Tweed Heads, Northern NSW.

The rain drizzled over and brought out the most stunning light at golden hour.
