So finally, even thoI don’t have time to sleep, I am posting some of the beautiful images from the Jinky Art workshop I did back in June. My gosh what an amazing workshop. The food, the company, the teaching. I think I can say it was the best one I have done to date! Barb is such a laid back, carefree teacher. I learnt so much and had a great time in the process. So, without further adieu….

We had everything thrown at us today. Wind….check….mega low tide….check…..a gazillion miles to walk over crab shells and knee high mud….double check. We nearly lost the 3 year old in a mud pit and the photographer (namely me) was lucky to stay standing upright on three occasions!! Lucky my 4 adorable young ones were so perfect or we would never have finished today’s session! The trek out to the water I think was worth it. Just love the sailing boat image! Enjoy your sneak peek guys!

Oh my ribs are still hurting form all the laughing this afternoon! What an amazingly fun family I had the pleasure of playing with all afternoon. Master J was a crack up from the second he stepped out of the car. We nursed crabs for half the session and spent the other half searching for more. We finished in record time and were able to then enjoy the beautiful afternoon. I love Summer!

This is what happens when mum and dad get all jealous over the baby having all the fun! Hahah! After Miss O was finished with her cake, someone mentioned a food fight (oops, that might have been me) Dad took no convincing whatsoever and soon it was on. Mum quickly had the upper hand and finished victorious! What an awesome way to finish some first birthday celebrations! It always surprises me  how ‘my’ newborns grow so quickly. I have been lucky enough to watch this little one grow into a beautiful baby and look forward to sharing many more special moments captured here. 🙂

Most of you will recognise this beautiful family from Miss A’s newborn and cake smash portraits. Today we welcomed the new addition to the family into the studio. He couldn’t quite decide if he wanted to be here tho! Man, did he make me work for every shot today. Don’t let the sleepiness fool you, that was just him blinking :)….just kidding. They all have to give into sleep at some stage. That time came after 2 hours of feeding, sharing his amazing lungs with us and pooping. Then, la la land was his favourite place to be. This is why I only book one session in a day. To make sure we don’t miss this….

After months of planning, sewing, Pinteresting and design, our Christmas session is finally ready for viewing! I was so excited about this session and just love how it came out. Taking the time to plan and put together a stylised session such as this is really the perfect way to capture some amazing images of your family. Not only does it make for good photos, but your little ones will be talking about it for years to come. Its about creating an experience, happy memories and something to cherish. It’s a moment in time, captured forever.

None of it would have been possible without the very talented Robyn from The House of Romill. She single handedly created all the outfits and crowns. Marnie, our amazing hair and make up stylist spent hours patiently gluing gemstones to me and up styling my hair. She also looked after Ayrlie and touched up the boys. All styling was done the Mummy-n-Me team with the grunt work being carried out by my oh so supportive hubby (seriously, how many dads would wear that get up without complaining!)

What are you doing for your next family session?

You can tell already that they are going to be great friends. Perfect timing with a record session of about 1.5 hours! – unheard of for a newborn and toddler session. Thanks for coming in and sharing the morning with me guys. Enjoy the sneak peek. 🙂

How beautiful does this Mama look! Thanks so much to Marnie for coming in today for some pampering. We had such a lovely and relaxed session. Little Miss R didn’t want to sleep for us at the end but it was the perfect opportunity to capture some awake shots.

One of the favourite things I love about my job is seeing families grow. Two years ago I photographed master B (Here) and today I was finally able to meet miss E. Master B’s session was super quick as he flashed his big blue eyes and smiles all over the place. Today was no different with little E being the cutest, most cuddly baby ever!! Don’t tell my hubby, but I so could have packed her in my camera bag and smuggled her home. 🙂  Thanks guys for travelling all the way from Barcaldine (again!) to see me. x

  • Nicole Landers - Oh my god! Not that I doubted you for a minute Bonnie but these are once again absolutely amazing! Thank you for a wonderful afternoon. Can’t wait to see the rest ReplyCancel

 

Miss E was a dream to work with from the second she arrived today. We had so much fun. With the weather warming up, it was the perfect opportunity to head outside. I simply love newborns outdoors, everything is pure and natural. Just like them.

Inspiration for mamma’s image from the talented Kelly brown form little pieces photography.

Here I was, just chillin on a Saturday morning, finishing my breaky when there was a knock at the door. I sighed thinking it was some more sales people trying to get me to swap my electricity. Imagine my complete horror when I see a beautiful family, smiling and excited for their little man’s one year portraits!!! Doh! I had not put the appointment into the diary. How embarrassing! Thankfully this family was so amazing they gave me 20 min to get organised and ready to start shooting. The end result, some super cute images for the family’s wall. Thanks again A Family for bearing with me. 🙂

Hehe, That’s exactly what little miss was saying all day today. The 10 day growth spurt came early and bubby was hungry! Mum did and amazing job keeping up with the demand and luckily bub would  give us just enough time in between to snap a few images. Thanks dad for the quick hands and to grandma for keeping us all company 🙂

Miss S was one happy little lady when she came in for her cake smash session. After a quick nap in the car she was ready for some giggles. She just loved her toes, and I have them poking out, up and in, almost every image! And what cute little toes they were. Mum and I had been planning her session for quite a few weeks. Eventually we decided on one of our custom design backdrops. Fluffy clouds and raindrops featured on miss S’s birthday invitation and she just loved playing with the hanging hearts. Happy Birthday S, I hope you had a lovely day!

Again we called on the very talented Robyn from The House of Romill for the beautiful skirt and head band.

Today’s poppet was a perfect little angel. She would smile on cue and giggle whenever you looked at her. I love this age. After the first 5-10 days when you capture the newborn stage, this is the next milestone. Your little one is sitting, smiling and really interacting. It’s so precious! And isn’t miss L just that.

Hehe, that’s exactly what was going through master O’s mind the other morning! He had no intention of sleeping for us, but as I say, they can’t hold out forever.  And although baby O gave it his best shot, eventually he drifted into dreamland….. isn’t he the most adorable sleeper ever!

Hmmmm, what do you do when you have a session you love so much you want to blog the whole thing! And then, what do you do when you have  a cake smash, with no one wanting to smash the cakes! We has miss L and baby A in the studio for miss A’s one year portraits. Since the girls birthdays are only a few days apart, mum thought it would be a great idea to have a double cake smash.  I, of course thought it was a stroke of brilliance and started baking up a storm. There was only one problem in our master plan. Baby A decided, she doesn’t like cake…. at all, and miss L only likes icing…. and keeping spotlessly clean. Hahah! Well, the best laid plans of mice and men will often go astray, so the saying goes. We improvised and still ended up with some funny as shots for the storyboard. Lucky we had a split session and spent the rest of the afternoon at my new favourite location. How beautiful do they all look. Who would have known, that a swamp could be so darn amazing! 🙂

This little guy was adorable, awake but adorable! He spent most of the session looking around but none of them can hold out forever!. Eventually he succumbed to sleep, just long enough for us (and that’s all three of us) to capture some amazing images. It took mum, dad and I working together to tuck, position, hold and dodge some projectile number two’s to create these. It was soooo worth it.

This morning was spent snuggled up under the doona with hot chocolates and marshmallows…. Well it was for this gorgeous family! Master P is turning One on Sunday so mum wanted a cake smash to celebrate. Since it’s been so cold I suggested a snuggle session for the family portraits. Don’t they look adorable! Unfortunately the outfit mum had picked out didn’t arrive on time so she had Robyn from the House of Romill make the cutest Nappy cover, hat and bow tie set. I think it works a treat. Thanks Master P and family for sharing the morning with me.  🙂

I’m not going to lie. Master J was making me work for every little smirk today! Poor little popped was not 100% himself, combine that with a pretty cool afternoon and the bewitching hour time of day and you just ‘know’ you will be pulling out all the tricks. These days however, we can breath a sigh of relief because with our amazing technology, we can shoot like a crazy person and capture that smile no matter how fleeting. Mum and dad worked just as hard as I did today and it did pay off. We have ended up with some beautiful images (and a couple of others that will just crack you up) the H family can treasure for years to come. 🙂

Remember last week when I photographed baby I? Well this is her cousin. Grandma decided that 8 week old X needed his family portraits taken too. I’m so glad they decided to come in today as we had a great, fun filled morning morning. Mostly thanks to big brother E, who was a hoot to be around and just loves his little brother (so long as he keeps his nappy on)   🙂
