And just like that our sweet like man turned four!!
A small gathering with his nearest and dearest.
I asked my neighbours work colleague if he would have any honeycomb!! He brought over the entire lid off a bee hive box!! It smelt & tasted amazing - thank you.
For those that don’t know Ezra is gluten & dairy free - the whole party was safe for him & the tasting board had all his favourites on it, including quince paste - he has expensive taste like is Mumma.

Everything else i already had.
I feel like yesterdays adventures was the perfect timing for some family time.
A much needed break & time away from my phone - i took my camera though, because let's face it, obsessed! And I capture everyone else's special moments, so I have to do the same for us!!
The EKKA!!! Matt took me here on our first date!! Ever since, we have gone back every couple years! It is even more fun now, with kids!
Caitlin won a beautiful Mother's Day comp back in May.
Due very soon with her rainbow babe, we booked in a maternity session for a beautiful spot near her home in the Northern Rivers.
I receive a message! 'I have good news & bad news'!! The good news, her and bub were ok, the bad, she has been admitted into hospital for the remainder of her pregnancy.
SO! I packed my bags & came to Caitlin!!
From the moment we started messaging each other, it was an instant connection. Little did we know, we actually went to daycare together and had no idea!!
It is such a small world!! I am so blessed to be able to capture these moments
'Any man can be a father, but it takes a special one to be a dad' - Anne Geddes
Sounds a little cliche, but how true!
The dad's always seem to miss out on the photos!! They don't want to be in them!
You don't have to pose, look directly at the camera and smile! I want you to enjoy those moments with your kids, playing, exploring, adventures!!
Now is the perfect time to book in for your Fatherhood mini session!
While I have been in Brisbane for 8 years or so, I still call Lismore home. No longer in the home we grew up in, but where ever my family (mum, dad, sister, & the other important people that hold a special place in our heart) that is HOME!!
I am blessed to be able too travel between Lismore & Brisbane and have developed a strong base for my business in both areas. Having support with family & friends also is super important when working between both locations.
I have a passion for the boys to grow up with some of the things I had!! Living in Brisbane that isn't always possible!! We have tried having chickens, it wasn't overly successful with them shredding the neighbours gardens, thinking inside was their second home, so we re homed them. The best thing i can give the boys is adventures!! Showing them that is so much in this beautiful world to see. Children see the world differently to us, simplicity is best!!
MUM!! Where would i be without you. You are my calm, We may never see eye to eye, but you are always there for the boys & I!! Even when Ezra makes you roll down wet grassy hills, throw leaves around with him & letting him explore! That is living, living the best life, outdoors!! Don't get me wrong iPads and technology have their place and are great!!
I will let the photographs do the talking from our weekend away!!
Hat: Will + Bear
Overalls: Tree of life
Boys outfits: Halo & Horns + Zara + Studio baby bird
The behind the scenes of selecting tones for my shoots.
I love having matching tones, but not completely matching (unless I feel like we should totally all have the same shirt on ;-), what mum hasn't done this?!?).
Adding layers, textures, tones all makes for the prefect photograph, but also looks stunning when you print for the wall.
When shopping, I aim for pieces that are timeless, perfect for laying for different seasons and lets not forget comfort.
The session below, I went with shades of blue / grey.
Wraps: A little life & Pop Ya Tot
Jeans - Cotton On
Dress - Zara
Milk Bath Monday - the best way to start the week.
Th boys have a bath or shower every evening, but having a relaxing soak in the bath is good for the soul. Every Monday is our DIY spa day.
The most common question I am asked, is that real milk?!?! No, no it is not. It is not powered or real milk, it is a beautiful product I buy made from avocado. It smells divine & leaves the skin so beautiful & soft.
I want the boys to grow up and look after themselves, I feel that this starts from a young age.
While, I don't give Ez a massage, I do moisturise his arms and legs with a QV cream, especially during Winter. Bowie, I give him a baby massage with some essential oils every evening. It is something I have done since I brought him home from special care.
To top off Milk bath Monday, I also add some flowers or greenery, who says boys can't have flowers too! I usually ask Ez to pick out his favourite bunch from the florist (within reason ahah). After all, I hope one day they will buy their partners flowers!!
The flower bath insert is from - Blooming bath, you can find Australian stockists, some also have AfterPay - This is not sponsored.
Second babe, first time experiencing special care nursery. Completely overwhelmed, lost & scared.
It has only taken me almost 4 months to go over and edit a few of Bowie's first couple weeks in special care. It seems like a life time ago, some of it a bit of a blur, but most of all I feel beyond grateful that I have a beautiful & happy little man at home with us now.
The best Valentine's gift anyone could ever ask for!! February 14th, 7am - Bowie Rain was welcomed earthside.
Documenting each day in special care was my way of coping. Some days nothing changed, others we were able to bath & watch those scales slowly increase!!
Looking back at these photographs and seeing him today, you would never know he was 5 weeks early and only 2kg!!
Tears stream down my face as I try put all the emotions into words.
So I will let the photographs do the talking.

The water of her womb, your first home.
The body she pulled apart to welcome you to the world.
The spirit in you she helped grow with all she knew.
The heart that she gave you when yours fell apart.
You are her soft miracle.
So she gave you her eyes to see the best in the worst.
You carry your mother in your eyes.
Make her proud of all she watches you do.
---- My first Mother's day as a Mama of two ----
My heart is so filled with love, it is bursting at the seems.

Nikki + Jason
It was like we had been friends for years!! I had the honour of photographing Nikki + Jason's whole pregnancy journey. It was truly an amazing experience. We did the pregnancy reveal, baby shower, pregnancy timeline, maternity, birth + newborn.
Midnight, I received a call to say Nikki's water had broken and that they just got to the hospital. I asked them to call back after the midwife had seen Nikki. 4 hours later, I received a call from Jason, 'i think you should get here as quick as possible'. Nikki was fully dilated!!! I literally flew down the stairs & rushed to the hospital. Making it with lots of time to spare. A few short hours later, beautiful little Malia was born earth side.
Emotions, I think I cried & smiled all at once. It is such a beautiful moment to capture.
Wowza!! Nerves on nerves!! Being booked by a fabulous photographer is quite daunting, well for me!! The pressure is on!! My mind is going a 100 mile an hour, am i taking too long, have I have taken enough photographs, is this what they are after and finally, i bloody hope these are in focus!!!
Half way through the session, me takes back over my body, we end up with the most beautiful sunset and I could have photographed Rox and her beautiful family everyday!! The location, the outfits and just them, being them made these photographs amazing!!
The perfect gift for your husband to be or Valentine's Day present.
'and so we are like flowers and bloom only when the sun kisses us' - Kristian Goldmund Aumann

Two little men and their gorgeous Mumma on an ice-cream date! So messy, but oh so fun!!
It was such a beautiful afternoon capturing the Young family.
This Summer we have just launched these beautiful sessions. For more information head over to the 'Contact' tab.
I LOVEEEEEEE Christmas!! It is no secret in our family!! The food, company and presents!!
SO this year I decided to Blog a couple of our family Christmas events! With four families we see over the Christmas period, it means lots of sweets & Christmas cheer!!
I have been extremely busy over the last few weeks and I still am finishing off sessions, while also being on call for a beautiful Mumma to welcome her little one earthside.
We kept the evening very low key & it actually ended up being quite affordable.
Most things I already had!!
The drink canister: Kmart - Pimm's mocktail
Glasses: IKEA (recent purchase)
All food except the the little bread sticks and cheese block (tasting plate) was gluten & dairy free, so my little man could enjoy all the treats as well.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
