It was such a privilege to photograph this amazing couple for their maternity session. They travelled all the way from Tasmania to have this session completed and I think you'll agree that their love for each other is crystal clear.
Thank you so much and I must add that pregnancy suits you so much! xoxo

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

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.

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
I am officially an AIPP Accredited Professional Photographer!
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.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU?
Accreditation is designed to give you, the consumer, confidence that your Professional Photographer is a proven, experienced, technically capable, professional practitioner, who complies with all legal business requirements, has appropriate insurance and who is willing to agree to the mandatory Code of Professional Practice and to the requirement to continually improve their photographic skills by committing to continue their professional development.
To become accredited, a Professional Photographer has to:
The major takeaway from this new title is that you can rest assured that you are in good hands as judged by the national governing body for photography in Australia!
