If you have been following my page for a while, you might remember seeing this amazing family last year. About a month after our shoot, their beautiful girl, Mila, was diagnosed with luekaemia. As a mother, I can't begin to imagine what they have been through these last 5 months. It feels like our shoot was a lifetime ago.
Let me tell you a few things I know about J'nae, her hubby and their gorgeous children -
So, here are their photos from a lifetime ago but really not that long ago...
This beautiful family were the winners of my Snuggle Session competition on my Instagram page! It was so wonderful to meet them and capture these gorgeous moments. I just love these images! Snuggle Sessions are held in my Sunshine Coast home studio and aren't as long as my outdoor sessions but they still pack some punch! So much variety from the one session. LOVE, LOVE LOVE these!!!
Now, I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before but I absolutely, with all my heart, love photographing families (yes, yes, you may have heard me say something along those lines once or twice before!). This Sunshine Coast family session was no exception... they were SUCH a joy to be around. Bubba was a bit poorly and fell asleep while we were shooting. We just went with it and the photos of her sleeping in her parents arms are some of my favourites. Enjoy this beautiful session, it's one that I'll never forget...
I absolutely love photographing families and it's made even more special when I get to photograph them more than once! I met this beautiful family two years ago when they asked me to take their family portraits down at the beach. This time, we met down by the river on a stunning afternoon and captured some truly beautiful moments. These sisters have such a special bond and it was so lovely to observe them together. I seriously have the best clients... I love it!!
I was super excited when Megan asked if I could photograph her beautiful family at Coolum Beach! I absolutely love trying out new locations (which is perfect considering we only moved here at the start of the year!). Being a photographer on the Sunshine Coast means I am VERY spoiled for locations and Coolum did not disappoint! We had the most stunning afternoon. Seriously, the sky at the end of the shoot was so pretty I didn't want to leave. Throw in a family that is a dream to photograph and it was all pretty special really! Add to all that, the fact that these guys used to live in Townsville AND we have a mutual friend AND Greg and I used to be in the same surf club! It's such a small world. Needless to say, I absolutely LOVED this session... can you tell? ;)
