{ I do } | Perth Wedding Photographer

Last saturday I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Amanda and Lorenzo’s wedding. I don’t normally do weddings but when these guys asked me to capture their special day I couldn’t say no, I have been photographing their gorgeous little boy Aidan since he was 4 weeks old so I have been able to watch him grow and to now witness his parents get married is an amazing feeling.

I will admit I was a tad ( ok alot lol ) nervous about shooting this wedding as it was my first but with the help of my good friend Nils at Figg Tree Photography we got some truly gorgeous shots, Thanks again so much for your help Nils I honestly couldn’t have done it without you, you helped me more than you could probly know and I hope you had as much fun as I did!

Now a bit about the day! Amanda would have to be the most calm person I know she was not stressed one bit and it made our job so much easier ( and me less stressed! ) I still cannot believe how calm she was even with all the dramas with her dress before the big day nothing fazed her in the slightest. Loz on the other hand was a bundle of nerves the poor guy he was so stressed out something was going to go wrong and when he caught me taking pictures of him and me telling him to pretend I wasn’t there he came over with the most horrified look on his face and said ” the celebrants not here yet ” we did our best to help ease his nerves and the celebrant did turn up a few minutes late but poor Loz was so worried ! The ceremony was beautiful so many tears and I will admit I nearly cried during the speeches in which Loz announced they are expecting baby number 2 !

Thankyou for inviting me to share your special day Amanda and Loz it was an amazing experience and im glad you guys were my first ( lol ). I look forward to watching your gorgeous family grow.

Here is part 1 a mixture of images taken by both Nils and I.It was so hard to choose as there are so many I want to share so will need to do them over a few posts doesn’t Amanda look absolutely STUNNING !

{ Little Miss.. } | Perth Newborn Photographer

Fiesty ! Miss Charlotte graced us with her presence in the studio this morning and boy was she a fiesty one ! She had such a little temper and when she got angry you would know about it and you couldn’t help but giggle at her angry little face. Her parents would have to be some of the most easy going people I have ever met and even though Charlotte is their first baby you would think that they have done it all before.  Alison and Darren thanks for a fun morning and for sharing your little princess with me, I feel like I have known you for years Thankyou for making my job so easy! Enjoy your sneek peek!

Meet Miss Charlotte on day 16

{ Chubbalicious } | Perth Baby & Child Photographer

This morning I had 2 very cute kids in the studio. Miss Keira at 3 months old is the most smiley baby I have met yet and check out her chub ! I always have a soft spot for cubby babies and I managed 1 sleepy shot which I was over the moon with considering her age I still can’t believe I got her asleep like this! Almost 3 year old Rhys is such a crack up he was a little tornado, would sit for 2.5 seconds then up he would get and say he was finished ! don’t blame him really its not much fun having to sit still for more than a few minutes when there is all there is a whole room of toys to play with.  Thanks for comming all this way for your session Erin was great to finally meet you, I hope you love these!

Here is Keira 3 months and almost 3 year old Rhys

{ Baby’s got blue eyes } | Perth Baby Photographer

Today I had the Gorgeous Ava in the studio. Her eyes are the most amazing shade of blue I have ever seen they are  just unreal! ( and I have NOT altered the colour of her eyes they are really that blue ! ). She has such a cute little personality already and would smile like crazy at me until i pulled the camera to my face then I would just get this straight faced look which was just as adorable as her huge smiles. Ava has the loudest squeal I have come across, when she gets excited or annoyed she would let out a squeal, I think she would make a good opera singer one day! Thanks for a fun morning Rebecca and Angus your little girl is just to cute for words and I hope you enjoy your sneek peek ! ( I am just in Love with this first shot she looks like such a little lady! ) 

Meet 6 month old Ava

{ Time Flys } | Perth Newborn Photographer

It’s amazing how fast these little babies grow, Taj was in the studio just One week ago and I can not believe how much he has grown in such a short amount of time it blows me away. It goes to show how fast they really do grow and if you blink you just may miss it ! It was great to have you guys back in the studio , Taj cracks me up with his dummy obsession ( lol ) and he was so good considering his age now! I hope you guys enjoy these and I will be in touch with you soon.

Here is Taj at 7 weeks old
