Yesterday, I was lucky enough to meet this lovely family, who are visiting from the UK. We couldn't have asked for a better beach day. The kids were in their element. Seriously, how lucky are we to have such a beautiful collection of amazing beaches in Sydney!
Today consisted of several telephone conferences. Whilst some cases are challenging, it is always satisfying when clients are happy with their results or are offered with strategic solutions in the most stressful times!
I bet this will be a framer for Christmas!
Today I taught my first Lightroom Editing Mentor session. I am excited to start offering these mentoring sessions starting January 2019. They will be one hour sessions offered online or in-person and include everything you need to know about Lightroom and how I edit my images. Also- you should check out @capsuleclosetgirl
besides being super gorgeous she has some awesome ideas and insights👌🏼.
Here’s a little sneak peak of these two cuties!
The free, natural moments will always have my heart ✨
seven dayyyyyyyys till Christmas Eve
I still have so much shopping and ALL the wrapping to do 😂😬
I love the way that the groom always gets the most sweet and genuine giggles out of the bride. 🙌🏻
We are a bit behind on Christmas time around here. I'll be honest, we didn't have a single Christmas decoration up until today. But last night we strung a garland with popcorn, oranges, and cranberries and I think it might be a new family tradition. Since we have the kitten this year, I decided we would make all of our ornaments, so we will be spending our week doing that (now that we got our tree up and only a week left until Christmas 😂). Today we opted for cinnamon stars and gingerbread ornaments. I felt a little crazy deciding to diy everything, but now that I see it all coming together I think I'm going to love it. Is anyone else behind on Christmas decorating? Or shopping?🎄
Those sweet little cheeks! Check out my stories for more of this little munchkin + his handsome big brother! 💛💛💛
Her baby brother, letting her know who’s boss!
THE STORY // New product list almost ready to release 🙌🏼
All my sessions for sure include some traditional, looking at the camera smiling photos but the majority are candid. I love laughter, love and all emotion. That is what I focus to capture most! And that’s usually what my clients end up loving most. It’s genuine, it’s playful, it’s “them” and the perfect pieces for the walls in their home. 🧡 loved the piggy-back ride out of the weeds 😍 and that sunset 🌅
Two of the sweetest girls I know!
miss Adley adding more cuteness to the new space. 😍
This little guy is growing up so fast!! Remember this➡️🤗oh little E. You are so loved!!😘
It’s almost Christmas and we’re doing our happy dance! What’s everyone’s plans? Anyone going anywhere exciting?
One of the best things I’ve done for my business is learned how to say “no” to potential sessions that I don’t really want to do. Turning down paid work may sound crazy, but every time you say yes to a project you don’t love, it means that much less time you’ll be able to spend doing the work you actually LOVE. When I started focusing all my efforts on just the types of sessions that really inspired me, my work (and sanity!) improved SO much. So photographers, never feel bad for choosing to turn down work and specialize in specific types of sessions. Are you one of those photographers who wants to begin specializing, but hasn’t felt comfortable saying “no” yet? Let me know! 👇🏻
His arms and a coffee mug in hand. My two favorite things ❤️
4 days before Parker left and he’s getting his snuggles in. These two are so close! Today Parker got to call us while in the airport. Never cried when we said our goodbyes three weeks ago and then Finn gets on the phone and he gets choked up. Those two hold the sweetest bond. Parker is happy and ready to get to Virginia!
Sleep in heavenly peace. ✨🎼 Newborn session moments.
I have made three batches of ginger molasses cookies in the last week, so I guess you could say I’m using the fact that Christmas is coming to feed my sweet tooth. Anyone else?
Speaking of Christmas coming...I think we can all agree that most of the people we’re shopping for already have everything they need which makes Christmas shopping SO tough. Soo if you’re at loss for gift ideas, it’s not too late to give someone the ultimate Christmas gift aka a photo session. Whether that be a family session for your parents who have everything or a just-because session for your partner, or maybe you’d like to give yourself something special this year - gifting photography is always a good idea.
I might be biased (I 100% am), but I believe giving someone you love the chance to capture this time in their life, wherever they are at, is a gift they will remember and love for years and years.
Message me for details on gift cards and special winter pricing for sessions booked between now & May.
HAPPY Monday! I can’t believe Christmas is only E I G H T days away! These brothers are SO excited for Christmas. It’s such a magical season...I don’t want it to end! ✨
Rainy days call for Christmas movies and snugs on the couch 🎅🤶🌲
That pregnancy glow ✨✨✨ text your favorite soon to be mommas and tell them you love them 🧡
Camden is pretty dang cute! He’s so calm and sweet and watches everything his big brother does.
We aren’t doing holiday cards this year.
With our schedules and the busy season, it just didn’t happen, and if I’m being honest, I’m totally okay with it. Instead, I’m making some albums for the grandmas ( old school style: real prints with photo corners), and going through all our family photos, both professional and candid at home, has been the most incredible gift for my soul this season. All that said, I’m definitely needing some family pics after the new year!! I love seeing us grow and change ( and me in photos with out the selfie 🤳 long arm is a must!) Love this image from a few years ago, Benny is barely two and Henry is freshly four 😍 going to make some grannies extra happy this year ❤️ there’s more throw back pictures in my stories if you want a peek into the rabbit hole that has sucked up my last three days ❤️
Christmas holidays start today and I’m still looking at my ‘to do’ list a bit like this 👆🏼🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄
“1, 2, 3 cheeeeeeeesssseeeee” is Pipers newest trick these days and we are pretty obsessed! That nose scrunch kills me every time! I can’t believe she’s 15 Months old! #PiperDonohue
Laughing out loud! This family was fun! kcdphotography
Seriously giddy over all the newborn shoots I’ve been able to capture over the last few months. This doll baby makes me want to have at least 10 more kids. 😬 #jk #okmaybenot
Ventured off into a magical trail with this sweet crew! This darling trio make my job easy!!
Lifestyle photography captures the family just as they are, and I love it. Side note: I don’t think I’ll ever get over this family session! 😍
