henry + ellen + osric

I spent a lovely morning with Henry, Ellen and three year old, Osric, who was simply too cute for words. I loved his cheeky smiles and his adorable, boyish nature.

In between tickles and cuddles, he played with his dinosaurs, rode his bike like a pro 
and climbed a beautiful old tree. 

Enjoy this selection of some of my favourite photos x

it's the simple things ...


This morning, Joshua asked me if he could bake a recipe that he'd written himself.
He knew exactly what he wanted to make - chocolate orange cupcakes.

He described them perfectly to me - chunks of chocolate inside with candied oranges on top of chocolate icing. So I helped him with quantities so it would work and went shopping together for ingredients. He then put on his usual chef's outfit and the fun began.

It's the simple things in life that bring me the greatest joy - like the time we spent today
doing something that made us both so incredibly happy.

Love you JJ x

michael + jenny + ellene + sophia


It was a glorious Brisbane winter's morning when I photographed two of the sweetest girls and their parents. 
Looking like they'd stepped out of the pages of Studio Bambino, Ellene and Sophia were a joy to photograph and heaps of fun.

What I love most about photographing families, is seeing the connections between everyone. 
Michael and Jenny adore their beautiful girls and you can see it in every single photo the special bond that they have with them. 

Enjoy this selection of my favourite photos - I couldn't resist sharing so many.

Oh, and keep an eye out at the bottom of this post for some cool dancing moves from Ellene and Sophia x

paul + anita + kaitlyn + jonathon


You may recognise these two adorable children from previous photo sessions that I've had with each of them when they were babies. This time, they were here with their family as part of a big extended photo shoot. You can see where they get their good looks from, right?

I just had to share a couple of photos - I just couldn't resist!

They had me entertained and in awe of their incredible connection with each other.

Stay tuned over the coming weeks for more photos from their session including

helen + her beautiful family


There's nothing more that I love than seeing families come together to celebrate a special occasion 
and for this family they were celebrating Helen turning 70!
A birthday gift of a photo shoot with Helen's 4 children, their partners and her grandchildren including Donatello, the adorable Pekingese.

Helen is beautiful!
She is kind and gentle and absolutely loves her family with all her heart.
To photograph everyone was a pleasure and I know how treasured these photos will always be.

Enjoy some of my favourite images from this session.
