- Kaleshia Pregnancy Beach Session | Bunbury Southwest Maternity Photographer November 22, 2016
A maternity session for a couple can be intimate and fun but when you throw in a sibling including the K9 type it can be even more fun and chaotic. Introducing Kaleshia, Parke, Indie-Rose and the K9 Brother Booma for Kaleshia’s maternity beach session at 36 weeks.
Most of my past clients have seen Kaleshia and Parke on my studio wall. Large and framed. The pregnancy pose has been requested many times because of it. The image is of Kaleshia and Parke’s first pregnancy. Well we recreated the same pose incorporating Indie-Rose who was in that belly nearing on 5 years prior.
Indie-Rose and her sneaky little grin was what we got when in the studio but when we hit the beach it was all fun and games and that gorgeous smile, I know so well, came out to play.
What an amazing sunset we were blessed with on their local beach in Dalyellup.
For Kaleshia’s beach maternity outfit we combined a couple of items such as a standard crop top from Reiss Emporium Treendale and also a sheer maternity gown turned into a skirt and sash. We wanted to bear that beautiful belly but keep the outfit soft and feminine. I love having a play with the maternity wardrobe I have on hand for clients and it fit perfectly with the setting.

- The Pritchard Family | Bunbury Southwest Family Photographer November 15, 2016
I love photographing this family. This is the third family session I have done with them and I think Kell and Alana are the most fun parents. Kell was unfortunate to miss the first two sessions (maybe lucky for him) but we finally got him amongst his girls and showed him what it was all about.
Alana has a great eye for colours and material (amazing sewer/patterns from Rosie Petal) and I always love seeing what combinations she puts the girls in for their family sessions. Once again she did not disappoint!
We were given an amazing Summer’s evening and the girls know how to turn it on for the camera and I think that may have been assisted by their Mum’s love to capture them in her latest creations and I’ll also say yearly photo sessions for the past three may have helped too.
What games am I going to have to come up with next. They are all turning into beautiful girls and I love seeing them grow.
- Candece’s Family Session | Bunbury South West Family Photographer November 9, 2016
So Candece is starting her fight. A fight as a healthy, busy Mum of two never thought she would face. A fight against Cancer.
Her strength and story are amazing. I have been following her on her private Facebook page, set up for her concerned friends and family to keep up to date and allow Candece to say it once.
In my own simple explanation of her story, Candece had a routine Pap Smear. Pre-Cancerous cells were found and she was advised to come back in 12 months. Well 12 months was too long and a tumour had developed. The tumour was found to be Cancerous and that is when her world changed forever.
The journey, even though it has just started, has been a long one. With her never ending appointments, her ongoing learnings, being prodded and pocked and finally the start of her treatment.
We wanted to capture Candece with her family before treatment and together with Lani, from Envy the Beauty Specialists, we ensured it was a day of pampering and fussing.
Candece, together with her girls Tahlia and Georgia had their hair and makeup done in the comfort of their home and I popped in to say hi and meet the family, including hubby Chris, before the photo session.
It was a breezy evening but we knew it was now or never. Candece had decided earlier on that when her treatment was going to start she was going to cut her long, thick hair in preparation for hair loss.
So given it all the story above and the mixed emotions for everyone, the images tell a beautiful story. Even though we all know her strength and family together are going to kick Cancer’s butt. It was nice to have some time out just to be a crazy family having a crazy family photo shoot.

- Aryan on day 14 | Bunbury South West Newborn Photographer October 16, 2016
Newborn Photographer, Bunbury.
Following his parent’s beautiful maternity session, baby Aryan came to have his very first photo shoot on day 14 in this world. He was a sleepy little teddy bear and had the most amazing hair and lips.
Neeraj and Deepti are besotted and I just love his name. It was their desire to have a traditional name but for it to be used also in Australia without any problems with spelling or having to convert it to another. I think they did amazing.
With grandparents over from India Aryan is already so loved and will be spending this quality time with them before they need to return.
Congratulations Neeraj and Deepti. He is gorgeous!
