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...
After postponing this session several times due to unsunny weather on the Sunshine Coast, we decided to bite the bullet and go ahead with this shoot on yet another unsunny Sunny Coast day! You have no idea how glad I am that we did! The light was amazing and at the end of the shoot the clouds and rain out at sea made for some stunning shots. We had a hilarious scarf malfunction during the shoot as well which is well worth scrolling down for. Enjoy!!
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 just love my beach sessions and this is one of my favourites! Meet my 'little' cousin Nick and his family. After living in North Queensland, away from family for nearly 20 years, it was so lovely to be able to do this shoot and have the chance to get to know them a bit better. I grew up with my cousins and while we don't see each other that often these days, we all have a special bond which was definitely fostered by our Grandparents. Christmas mornings at Nan and Grandads, with 13 Grandkids was always the BEST! On top of that, my Grandparents had a holiday house in Caloundra where we could all gather and spend time together. Some of my happiest memories! And now, most of us have families of our own, and our kids are getting to know each other. The bond that our Grandparents created continues with the next generation!
Oh, and I should probably mention that Aleesha is the most beautiful human (it's not all about my side of the family)! Family really is everything and the love that Nick and Aleesha have for their kids and each other shines through in these images. Enjoy!
