Adelaide Natural Home and Park Newborn Family Portraits

Alicia and Dylon recently welcomed their perfect newborn bub Evan into the world. I love to meet little ones in their first few days, so sleepy and also so full of wonder at the world. Seeing it ways we’ve forgotten how as we grew up. Capturing little newborns in the most natural way possible is super important for me, and so we captured lots of cuddles both in Alicia & Dylon’s home and a park nearby where they often walk their two furry companions.

Beautiful Natural Newborn Family Portraits at Longview Winery

I don’t know what I love more about little newborn bubs, those gorgeous squishy cheeks, the way they look at the world, or those moments when they smile so brightly. Marilyn & Cheyenne met me at Longview Vineyard to take portraits with their adorable newborn bub Marcus. Wintery scenes with bare vines rolling along the hill give a sleepy, green and nostalgic feel to portraits and it was perfect. Thanks for having me guys! <3 xx

Roanna & James' Adventurous Deep Creek Engagement Portraits

My favourite sessions are adventurous settings, with awesome couples just as excited as I am to explore the great, beautiful outdoors of Australia! And does anything say Australia better than roos bounding across rolling plains with expansive views of bright blue seas? Deep Creek is one of those iconically beautiful Aussie landscapes, and it was great to capture some beautiful engagement portraits there with Roanna & James recently. Even took the new little car out for a 4WD adventure down to blow hole beach right as the sun was setting.

Teomi & Steven's Adelaide Hills Couple Portraits

Teomi and Steven are used to spending time apart due to work commitments, so during their precious time together whilst both in Adelaide, we decided to capture some memories for them! And it was an absolute hoot. We trekked on an adventure to the Adelaide Hills to capture some natural and fun couple’s portraits in unique and gorgeous settings. First stop was an instagram hot spot, a beautiful old train tunnel surrounded by warm Autumn colours and rustic trees.

Nicole and Luc brought their whole family to have portraits at Port Willunga Beach early in the year, just before jetting back across the ocean home. With their 4 gorgeous kids and their parents we took a few nice family photos, and a few photos letting the kids run free! A beautiful Summer day in the sunshine overlooking the ruined jetty, cool blue water, and unique sandy beach caves. Thanks for having me! :)

Claudia & Nug's Broken Hill Engagement Portraits

We all remember that record breaking hot day last week, nearly 47 degrees in Adelaide, the hottest day on record since the 30s! Kate and I (the celebrant I work with at Our Wild Love Elopements) decided to keep the record breaking heat going with a road trip to Broken Hill to capture Claudia and Nug’s beautiful wedding day. Prior to this though, we decided to do a a simple little engagement shoot with their beautiful daughter Livy. To keep our energy up for the big day, we decided to keep the session short and indoors.

Erin, Dave, Isla and Sausage Dog Kransky's Natural Family Portraits, Adelaide

After capturing Erin and Dave’s engagement portraits and wedding, I was thrilled to capture some natural memories for them as a family with 2 new members. Their sausage dog kransky came along when they collected their wedding USB, a little more grown up for this session he accompanied their newest family member baby Isla. Who is so adorably cute that even when she was grumbling and teary she looked sweet as a button. We started their family session in their family home, before heading to a nearby park for the perfect combination of indoor and outdoor portraits. Congrats on your beautiful baby girl guys! x

Jess & Jaiden's Himeji Garden Engagement Portraits

With their wedding coming up early this year, we thought it would be a great time to capture some engagement portraits for Jess and Jaiden at the gorgeous Adelaide Himeji Gardens at the end of last year. The Himeji Gardens really is a hidden gem of Adelaide, if you don’t know it’s there you could just walk straight past it. With a gorgeous little rock garden and calming pool. A lovely place for natural portraits.
