Now this may sound a little odd, but as the mother of a (former) baldy I find myself quite fascinated by newborns with lots of hair.  My poor darling girl couldn’t even wear a clip until she was 19 months old, yet this little guy … well … he had the most amazingly perfect little mohawk at 11 days old.  I’m quite sure there are teenagers who spend hours trying to get their hair looking like this!

Little Max is cute.  Seriously cute.  As in oh-my-goodness-I-need-another-baby-NOW cute.  And his big sister?  Cute.  You’d be hard pressed to find a cuter pair.  A beautiful little family, and a lovely way to spend an afternoon.

Thank you Kylie (and Dean!) for letting me photograph your gorgeous boy – he’s absolutely edible. xo

Just a few shots of the hair … the hair!

Photographing newborns is all kinds of bad … they make me desperate for another one myself!



And to finish off … a photobomb by big sister Mia.  This never fails to make me laugh!

To me, family photography is all about capturing love.  Love between partners, parents & their children, siblings, extended families.  That incredible, heart-bursting, I-never-knew-love-like-this-existed love between a mother and her newborn baby.  That I-might-push-you-around-but-anyone-else-that-touches-you-is-gonna-get-it love between a big brother & his little sister.  Love is everywhere, and it’s what makes being a photographer so incredible.  I’d have to disagree with Lennon/McCartney in that it’s definitely not all you need, but it’s at the top of the list, for sure.

And then there is the kind of love that is a little rarer.  Love that has spanned six decades, four children, more grandchildren, and even more great-grandchildren.

Below are two images of my daughter’s great-grandparents at their 60th wedding anniversary celebrations.  Sixty years of marriage and still so very much in love.  They are an absolute inspiration, and to see them together makes my heart smile.  Big.
