This is the story of an amazing mum who took her future and love of family into her own hands and created a love that is well worth the effort it took to realise.
At age 36, Mel decided that she was not willing to wait for a worthy partner but would take matters into her own hands and have a baby on on her own. The process was not an easy one and took a few years of trying, month after month, until finally success!
Mel's life changed and then one became two. Mel had beautiful little Caitlin and her life was forever enriched. I love the bond that is on display here between Mel and baby Caitlin, it was one of my more heartfelt sessions and I will forever remember this story as the brave mum who took on the task of having a baby on her own terms! <3 M

Those first days and weeks are magical. So many new experiences and emotions and that little cherub is only a newborn for a short time. Finding time between the feeds and nappy changes to capture memories can be a challenge. This is where I come in and believe me I truly appreciate the opportunity to create these memories for you. Thank you for allowing me a peak into your lives. xoxo <3 M

It is indisputable that one of the most heart warming moments is where your first child meets your second child and there is an immediate connection and display of love. I was so lucky to have the opportunity to capture some amazing photos of these gorgeous kids... enjoy the love shared here <3

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
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
