That first birthday is such a great milestone. The first year just flies by and to see how much your little angel has grown and learnt throughout that first 12 months is amazing. I love it when my clients think of me to capture these amazing times. I feel so lucky and have the best job in the world! Thank you for letting me experience this special day with you. xoxo <3 M

I always encourage my clients to bring along any items or clothing that they are passionate about. This really enhances the session as the emotion and memories that are tied to that passion is the most important reason we want photos.

It's always so amazing to have a family session with the kids, parents and grandparents all there together. It really showcases the love the family has for each other and these memories will be so important for each generation to reflect on throughout the years.

What a fantastic way to tell the story of who you are and what you enjoy as a family by including beautiful themes into your photography session.
I have been so lucky to photograph both of these gorgeous boys as babies and their super stylish mum always comes with the goods. The original session was cowboy themed with an actual saddle, whip and traditional cowboy hat.
Love, love, love incorporating your personal preferences into the session. individualising the photos makes it that much more connected to you and what you care about <3 M
Gorgeous girls sharing some loving sibling moments in the sun drenched forest. Having gorgeous locations is only part of the reason people trust professional photographers with their precious memories... it's also capturing those special moments between your children that matters the most. So many parents comment how I have managed to translate their children's unique personalities into a still image. It also doesn't hurt when your little subjects are so photogenic either! <3 M
Gorgeous family in gorgeous light. It's a match made in heaven. Only the amazing Gold Coast can put on a light show so that lucky photographers like me can capture wonderful memories like these. What can I say about these girls... so fun and loving! Thank you for being so perfectly excited and playful <3 M
There's nothing quite like the excitement of a birthday... whether it's your own or someone elses. Being a child and getting to smoosh and eat a cake all for yourself is something I think we all wish we could do! Happy Birthday Luca, you are one-in-a-million! <3
What an amazing name. Benjamin Beach! Not only only does he already sound like a movie star but he's perfectly placed location-wise here on the beautiful Gold Coast with a surname like beach! Thank you for being a such a gorgeous and lovable little boy <3

So, I have officially been accepted as an AIPP accredited professional photographer. I put off getting my accreditation for many years as between business duties, home duties and trying to be the best mum I can be, the accreditation consistently became the lower priority.
