Every year for the past 8 years I have been offering Mummy and Me sessions over the April/May period to celebrate Mothers Day. Not only are Mum’s and their babies one of my favourite things to photograph, I find them so super special and each year they become bigger and better. You see as Mothers we are usually the ones taking the photos, the ones who put ourselves to the side and make sure our babies come first for everything. The truth is, getting in the photos with your babies isn’t just for us. It is for our babies future so in years to come they have YOU in the photos with them. I know myself now as a 38 year old woman, I would give anything to have these photos from my own childhood with my own Mother. You are creating life long memories frozen in time and in the form of art that will be cherished for many years to come.
Mothers Day Sessions are suitable for Mums and their children and will be done at outdoor locations around the Rockingham area. Grandmothers can take part as well but just know that sometimes those moments just with your babies are that little bit more special when it is just you and them so are designed with Mums and their babies in mind. If you are wanting to have Dad in photos please contact us about a family session as Dad’s aren’t welcome in Mummy and Me sessions (sorry Dads but it’s all about Mum this time). But this time of year is amazing for outdoor photos and I currently have a few openings for family photos in May so if you would like to include Dad contact me to get more details.

As a family photographer it is always a pleasure when you get peopler like Hannah and her beautiful babies book you. They are such gorgeous souls.
We are so lucky here in Perth to have the BEST winter sunsets. They always create something magical for my clients who opt for a winter outdoor session. Hannah was a little nervous because she had never had professional photos before which is totally normal. I always aim to make my clients comfortable in front of the camera so I select locations that are generally fairly quiet so we don’t have too many bystanders. And of course I want my clients to have the feeling of me not being there and although I guide them a little I like the camera to really capture their story.
This time of year from Autumn through early spring is my favourite time of year to do outdoor family photography sessions. Most are scared off by the cooler weather but the truth is, Perth in Summer has harsh sunsets over the ocean with crazy winds. This time of year the days that aren’t washed out are generally stunning sunsets, soft lighting, calmer winds and just so perfect for outdoor family photos. Not to mention the snuggles under the blankets you get to keep warm.

This year has certainly been a strange year for everyone. Closing my doors during lockdown for Perth from the end of April for a few months really made me realise how much I missed and loved my job as a family photographer. I was so happy that when I able to open the doors again at the end of May that I had a number of beautiful families lined up ready to go. So many of them saying to me how lockdown had made them realise how they were missing those precious photos over the years on their walls.
I think in this day and age, we are so busy that time just gets away from us and before we know it we are 5-10 years down the track with no family photos to show for it. Or we get photos of our babies and don’t get in the photos ourself. I am totally guilty of this myself. Waiting until I loose some weight or that magical day when I think I would feel more comfortable in front of the camera. Which is actually crazy considering it’s my job to make others feel comfortable in front of the camera so know that a great professional photographer will make you feel that way.
Anyway, I had so much fun with Gemma and her family. I had met her babies for a Christmas Session before so was so happy that Gemma was jumping in some photos this time. She had requested a shoot at her property and to be honest I am always a little wary of this. The reasons are usually because I have specific locations I use because I know those specific locations give my clients a few different looks for their session, I know the lighting and what to expect from it so I can give my clients the best results. However when I asked Gemma to send me photos of their property I was like OF COURSE we can do your session there. It was perfect with autumn leaves everywhere with stunning light coming in over the west. I couldn’t of picked a better place myself.
