outdoor family photo session

Turning eighteen, and graduating high school, – new experiences and adventures await.  

All the love from family and friends that surrounds this lovely girl, she returns in spades.  Gemma’s joyfulness, ready smile and laughter promises to stand her in good stead as she sets off on the next exciting part of her life’s journey.

Time to celebrate your successes and embrace all the new opportunities ahead!

You now have a collection of amazing photographs, professionally printed and all wrapped up in your gorgeous handmade Folio Box.  An outdoor family photography session that was not only a day to remember on location at your Nan’s farm, but that gives you your precious memories as printed photographs to hold forever!  Just imagine how far you, and your photographs will travel…

 

So very happy we captured these images for you, Gem.

 

You have brains in your head.

You have feet in your shoes.

You can steer yourself

any direction you choose.

Out there things can happen,

and frequently do

to people as brainy

and footsy as you.

And when things start to happen,

don’t worry.  Don’t stew.

Just go right along.

You’ll start happening too.

~ Dr Seuss.

Give Gift Certificates for Mother’s Day!

Give a Gift Certificate A gift for Mum

Mum, because of you, I know kindness.

‘Twas her thinking of others,

 made you think of her.

Mother's Day

Mums.  Givers of life and so much more.  Mother’s Day is your Mum’s day to be celebrated for just what she means to you.  Her boundless love and support.  It’s a chance for us to share the love! On her special day, give a Gift Certificate towards a photo session or beautiful artwork – photographs are a gift she’ll treasure forever.  She can be in them, or not…

The introduction of our beautifully presented fine art Gift Certificates could not have come at a better time.  Give Mum a Gift Certificate for Mother’s Day, and she will thank you every time she looks at her beautiful photographs.

Most Mums typically shy away from being infront of the camera (or iPhone !!), preferring to let others be in the limelight.  What if I told you I could have Mum relishing every fun-loving second of being photographed?

mother's day

I could make her feel at ease and confident infront of my camera?

She can have the most beautiful photograph of herself or her family that she’s ever experienced?  All the while being pampered and indulged, and then holding exquisite fine art portraits in her hands.  Portraits that those hands will eventually pass down the generations.  To her children, her grandchildren, her great-grandchildren.

Mother Mum

Such is the power of the printed photograph.  Your images will travel farther than you think.

And Mums, what a wonderful legacy those photos will be to have in your family.  One day your children will look for them.

Gift Certificates – give someone you love the gift of a photoshoot or photographic art.

Gift Certificates Immediately Downloadable to Use As She Likes

SQP Gift Certificates start from $100, and besides being gorgeous in & of themselves, they’re just the spark to get the ball rolling and celebrate Mum in images.

You can join with others, and combine several gift vouchers for her to get her started, or build on, or gift a full ultimate package.  There are options to suit everyone.  All Gift Certificates look beautiful and are available to immediately download, but if ordered ahead of time, a beautifully packaged Gift Certificate that hints at the wonderful experience and photos to come will be snail-mailed.

Gift Certificates are valid for use within the coming 12 months from date of purchase, so there’s no pressure for Mum to decide on when to be photographed right away.  That adds to the excitement of receiving such a wonderful Gift Certificate towards both a photo session experience and luxe printed photographic products available only to professional photographers.  There are also no limits on the type of session and products available with a Gift Certificate – you are free to choose what you absolutely love!  She may want to be photographed a la ‘Portrait of A Lady’  in studio, or with others – like her own Mum, her children, or grandchildren. Her girlfriends.  And present her photos in a beautiful wall portrait, album, or Folio Box.

So what are you waiting for?  Give Gift Certificates for Mother’s Day. Let Mum know how loved she truly is.  Motherhood at every stage and in every guise, is something to celebrate!

Newborn Baby Photography Session

newborn baby photo session

Meet beautiful newborn baby Ella Josefine.

This adorable bundle was photographed in her newborn photography session this week, and she shone brightly.

“You are my sun, my moon, and all of my stars.”

She snuggled in organic hand dyed silks made just for her session.  Ella’s Mumma loves soft pinks and mint greens so that’s how we styled both the maternity and newborn photo sessions.

Simple styling, minimal props, and pure newborn baby newness.  Baby Ella graced us with her perfect newborn beauty.

Such a privilege and a joy to photograph Ella in all her tiny newborn splendour – from the velvety swirls crowning her head, to her delicate fingers and little toes.  So very precious.

It’s amazing to think that  only a month or so ago, I was photographing baby Ella’s mumma’s beach maternity session.  Together the maternity and newborn session images are an incredible way to document this lovely family’s new baby love!

Newborn Baby Photo Session to welcome Jenson

newborn baby photography Gold Coastnewborn baby photo session

Newborn Baby Jenson

There was lots of wonderful, exhuberant little boy energy at this gorgeous newborn baby session! Baby Jenson’s two older brothers were such a fun inclusion in his newborn baby photo shoot – they were brim full of creative ideas, laughter, and absolute love for their new little brother.

The boys’ creative input for the session saw the idea of their newest addition to the fold, possibly donning a baby bonnet, getting a resounding thumbs down!  It was so funny, I could read it on their faces the second they cast their eyes upon the little hats!!  And with such a beautiful head of velvety hair, the idea of covering Baby Jenson’s little head wasn’t even up for consideration.  The big brothers were also troopers helping with patting and gently rocking their new sibling to settle him after his feed.  So gorgeous to see and so special to capture for all time.

Your Newborn Baby Leads Every Session.

Just for the record little baby didn’t sleep a wink during the entire session!  But just look at the gorgeous images we captured. At SQP all our newborn baby photography sessions are totally baby led.  This means that we will never ever try to force your baby into any poses or environments that they are not happy doing.  We never push on just to get a particular shot.  And if baby needs a cuddle or a feed or a change then that’s exactly what happens.  Your baby’s and your comfort, safety and wellbeing are always our priority.  And our clients love us for it!  Read more about what to expect from your newborn baby photography session here.

We went between our cosy newborn setting, out into the garden with camera in tow, to run, jump and play while baby was being fed.   I just love that my little clients always feel so comfortable and embrace the creativity of their portrait sessions. We all just go with the flow.  Great things happen when they are comfortable and relaxed and run the show!  And, perhaps best of all, the experience of the session is fun and non-stressful for everyone!

This is one of the many benefits of being able to photograph my littlest subjects in my relaxed home studio on the Gold Coast.  Mum and the boys’ grandmothers all relaxed in the lounge while bub was photographed, and the big brothers adventured in the yard in between helping out with their baby brother. So awesome.  Little newborn details and all the excitement of welcoming a new baby was captured for this beautiful family.   And using the Gift Certificates bought by friends and relatives, they’ve chosen some amazing print products to display their story.

4 Generations Family Photography Session

4 generations of family photography session

The natural ease, the laughter, & the energy of this family photography  session for a family of 4 generations made for a great afternoon gathering on the Gold Coast.

generations family photo shoot

Encouraged to bring a picnic & make a ‘base camp’ to have our large session from, just look at what this stylish family set up!

Their session ran in the same relaxed, happy way and was such a celebration of wonderful family connection. Editing their images, I can not help but smile, their close bonds and pleasure in each others’ company just shines. I just love being able to capture their connection for them for all time.  Their wall art is surely their new family heirloom!
