Outdoor Family Photography Session – Brotherly Fun!

Family Photo Session on the Beach.

When two smiling boys arrive at their outdoor family photography session full of enthusiasm, energy, & imagination – what could possibly be better!  The sun shone, the wind stayed at bay, & the boys revelled in all things superheros, pirates, & the beach.

It was easy to see where the brothers get their happy little natures – Mum & Dad got amongst it all – a beautiful family that played, laughed, & just had a ball in one another’s company.

Our Family Album made especially to be both handled by little hands and handed down from generation to generation.

Capturing their spirit & joy & playfulness made for a fabulous afternoon of not only taking precious images, but of memory making.

Sometimes my job seems to be about guiding one big play session where my clients are relaxed and almost unaware of being photographed.  That’s when I know that a family photography session has been the best, and that the family will have amazing printed artwork to remember such special times!

2 Lifelong Friends’ High School Formal Photo Shoot

What a privilege to spend the afternoon with two wonderful families as their young adults – childhood friends – prepared for fun at their high school formal.  From the lighthearted laughter of capturing the hair & make up, to gorgeous moments with mums and their son & daughter, and grandparents helping to pin the button hole flower, and tie an impressive tie knot.  This high school formal photo shoot all happened in their home and captured these friends’ at their relaxed best.  At such milestone moments as these, youth, joy de vivre, family & friendships are the order of the day!

Such happy memories of an afternoon celebration that was brim full of  beautiful connections.

The Prettiest Ever First Birthday Cake Smash Photo Shoot

Lot’s of gorgeous girl power at this soiree yesterday! Come and join this little girl’s first birthday cake smash photo shoot. Think fun confetti balloons that looked like they were filled with cherry blossom petals, frothy blush tulle, & a 100’s & 1000’s sprinkled cake made especially by Daddy!

Every shade of pink from shell to fushia transformed our studio’s little sunny garden into a joyous outdoor party space.  So much fun!  Even her Mummy donned a party skirt.

Sitter Sessions for Baby – Full of Sparkle!

sitter photography sessions

Sitter Photography Sessions for when Baby is around 8 months old.

8 months old and full of fun and giggles! – sitting up unassisted, interacting, rolling around and playing with her toes.  Not quite crawling … so I have a captive – & captivated – audience.

Such fun playing dress ups with my cheeky cherubic muse Miss Layla yesterday.   Sitter sessions are among my favourite.  If you’ve missed the boat with having professional newborn photos captured – let’s face it those first few days, weeks, and months, can go by in a blur!! – consider a ‘sitter session’.

Sitter Sessions are more like a Mini Session

At the time they are sitting up on their own, baby’s personality is developing as is her love of connection.  She’s not yet in the shy stage, and the world around her is full of fun and interest.  Sitter sessions for baby at this time are mini sessions and can be captured in a much shorter time than newborn baby sessions. Sitter sessions are the perfect follow on from a newborn baby portrait session.  And that’s why SQP designed our 3 session The Bub-Set package to include them! Great variety and great value.

Baby’s usually so intrigued with the session, that I can get some amazing expressions, in a shorter session time. And… she can’t yet take off on a whim!  For these reasons, photos at the 7-9 month age are just a delight.
