We shot Nikki and Dan's portrait session at Little Paddocks Chapel in Glendon, just outside of Singleton in the Hunter Valley. 

The weather was looking a bit dodgy before we arrived, but it held off for the most part and gave us a pretty cool sky to work with. 

Nikki and Dan are expecting the birth of heir first child soon, so we helped them out with a few portraits and family photos along with their fun little Kelpie, Odie.  These guys were fantastic and it was an absolute privilege to be a part of this exciting stage in their lives.

kaye and dee's hunter valley engagement session

Kaye, a wonderful family friend of ours, moved over to Kuala Lumpur a couple of years ago to live and work.  Not sure if she was banking on bringing back one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet, but it happened.

We took Kaye and Dee out for an engagement session around Pokolbin, where we'll be shooting their wedding in a few months time.  It'll also be the first wedding that we'll be shooting.  We can't wait to document, celebrate and party all at the same time on their big day.

Congrats guys!

We shot Kahlee and Peter's couples session at Lake St. Clair, along with their cute French Bulldog Bosco.

Pete competes in Bass fishing comps, so we scooted out on his boat to a couple of the islands within the Lake to take advantage of the awesome bush scenery as well as the nice blue waters.

Thanks so much Kahlee and Pete for a great afternoon on the lake.  You guys are awesome and we're so glad you brought little boy Bosco along too!

darcie's singleton high school formal

We've known Darcie all her life, so it was very rewarding for us to be able to take some shots of her and her friends before they headed off to the Singleton High School Year 12 formal.

All the girls looked amazing and a special mention to the dudes who scrubbed up very smartly.

Thanks for having us Darcie, and congrats!

Andrea and Michael are a super friendly couple who asked us to shoot their family photos for the year before their second little one arrives.

Their 2 year old daughter Phoenix was an absolute riot and had quite a keen fascination with our gear.  Everything from reflectors to flashes - she wanted to check it out.  Eventually she took the camera and snapped a couple of very impressive shots of her parents.  Now there's a Christmas present idea for Mum and Dad!

Thanks so much Andrea and Michael for letting us spend a fun afternoon taking photos with you!

Sharyn and her husband Garry had just moved into their swanky new pad right on Lake Macquarie.  The move also happened to coincide with Sharyn's birthday.  Cue a surprise birthday/house warming/family photo shoot thingy!  

Sharyn's daughter Tanith, as well as Garry and the rest of the crew did a great job getting this organised and keeping it all hush, hush.  Thanks to all of you for putting on a great morning.

the moore's and the babb's brisbane family sessions

In April, we made one of our regualar trips up to Brisbane to photograph two wonderful couples and their kids.

We met Jessica, Shane and their cheery daughters Violet and Poppy on the Sandgate foreshore for some photos before grabbing some fish and chips as the sun went down.  Perfect.

A couple of days later we met Kimberley, Ryan and their fun little sidekicks for photos on Brisbane's northside.  Well done Kimmy for nailing these photos while in the late stages of pregnancy!

Here's a few of our favourites.

the earnshaw's and the fishpool's singleton family sessions

We had a blast shooting back to back sessions with these two fun Singleton families.  

First up was Danielle, Brad and their kids.  We spent about an hour with them and had plenty of laughs, especially when we brought out the cupcakes for a little picnic scene!

After that we had Shelby, Richard, Sophie and Luke.  These guys were seriously good fun.  No cupcakes this time, just Coke spiders.  Yes, sometimes we just feel like breaking out the good stuff during our sessions, it's how we roll.
