Boys Run Free – Centennial Park

I absolutely love Centennial park in Sydney – it provides limitless fun for kids of all ages :) Not to mention the park has got sooo many gorgeous spots for photos! Here is my favourite area in Centennial park. As you can see the boys love it too! Next time you visit Centennial wander off into the bush behind learner’s bike tracks and you might find this cool tee pee ;)

These two boys were born on the same day and they absolutely love each other, even though sometimes their craziness drives their mums crazy :) For me these photos are a quintessence of childhood and what free energetic 4 year olds are all about. I wish these boys will be in tune with nature and each other for the rest of their lives. Who plays together stays together <3

Beach Session with Gorgeous Family of Five

Yesterday I spent a sunny winter afternoon at Bronte beach photographing a crazy beautiful family of five. Natasha and Kostya have been together for 17 years and are lots of fun to be around! Their three little cuties are really lucky to have them as their parents. I laughed through most of the session listening to their conversation and would definitely love to hear more of their stories :) Well, maybe one day because only in a couple of weeks they’re moving back to their hometown of Chicago. I wish them all the luck in the world. Australia will miss you! <3

Wintery Lifestyle Newborn Session

What do you do when your mum comes to so Sydney all the way from Canada to see her grandchild for the first time? That’s right, you call a photographer to capture these precious moments! Ashley, Jonathan and little baby Ellis live in heartwarming house full of beautiful details and lots of love for Canada. I couldn’t walk pass a an attic transformed into a fairy tale like bedroom. Ellis will have so much playing there when he grows older. 

In Home Maternity Photosession

In-home lifestyle sessions are truly my favourite. Our homes reflect our personalities and are filled with objects dear to our heart. What other place in the world could be better to create meaningful lifelong memories?

Vanessa and Roger wanted to document this magical period in their lives in their beloved home. I can’t wait come back to their cozy nest to meet the little princess <3

Being a mother myself my favourite part of the day is morning. I love when my son comes to our bedroom for morning cuddles. Even though I don’t look my best at that particular moment, I feel absolutely the happiest and that’s what true joy of motherhood is all about. So, get comfy in your pjs and enjoy a homemade babiccino or a cup of morning tea this autumn!

Winter Mood Family Session in Centennial Park

Centennial park is always gorgeous, but especially on one of those winter days, when the air is crisp, the sky is blue and the sunset is golden and quiet.

This little gorgeous family was so much fun to photograph! Olivia is a little angel. She was smiling all the time and I think we really clicked :) She loves dogs, birds and horses and there were plenty of animals to watch in Centennial park.

What can I say, beautiful people combined with a beautiful location is a winning combination!

 

Cozy Winter Session in Sydney

This lifestyle session is all about coziness. The day of the session was Maria’s 31st birthday and we were planning a family session in the golden leaves of Centennial park. However, it happened to be one of those terrible Sydney winter days – blowing a gale with cold, miserable rain. I couldn’t let our plans completely fail on such a special day, so I suggested we shoot on site at Maria’s house and make a session in a place where her family spend most of their time.
I must say, lifestyle sessions at your home are very special. This the only place where you feel completely relaxed and your true self. The place in its own tells the whole story about you and your family – every detail has meaning and a reason to be there.
At first thought it could seem like an unexciting place to have photoshoot, yet years later when you might move houses, cities or even countries and your kids grow up, it will be a magical feeling to return to those times, and relive those moments when you were young and your children were small; to see what your house looked like, to feel again what you felt back then and ponder on how time flies and reflect on what you’ve achieved and how much you’ve changed since.

Sunshine in My Pocket

The most wonderful part of my job as a professional photographer is not actually taking pictures of people, it is listening to their stories. Every single person I’ve met in my life taught me something. It is truly important for me to connect with a person and  hope that their story of life, love, dreams, struggles and success speaks through pictures. Please don’t ever be afraid to open up and let others fall in love with you.

This family traveled the world and Australia in a camper van. They’ve been searching for a place they could call home for many years before they found it in Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
