A Day in the Hills // Adelaide Family Photography

I had a beauuuutiful morning up in the Adelaide Hills with these three girls and their gorgeous family. FOUR generations of girls all together! They are so lucky to have that. Also, my grandma’s dress sense is nowhere near as cute, so I’m a little jealous…I live in hope that my efforts at thrift stores and op shops will land me something like that dress but so far no luck…


Looking for ladybugs:)

I love this photo so much. I can honestly say that parents and grandparents very very rarely steal the show from kids — I mean, kids are so cute and naturally photogenic, it’s always gonna be hard to compete — but something about this is just so sweet.

Something I thought was very cool…these girls are third-generation Latvian, and they can speak and understand it pretty well with their mum, grandma and great-grandma! I love kids raised bilingually. I think it’s such a great way to give them a link to their heritage, and just generally having more than one language is a good thing. (I try and speak Japanese to my neice, Mira — yeah that’s right, my ability is roughly equal with a 2 year old! SKILLZ. Haha. I’m looking forward to when her Japanese improves to the point where she can start to teach ME, because often I get stuck on words or concepts I don’t know!)

Puppydog tails

Not sure about slugs and snails & puppydog tails…these two boys are pretty darn cute.

Traumatising toddlers with ducks, that’s how I roll. We always seem to run into them and the kids always have the same reaction: fascinated, then abruptly horrified!

The sad thing is, these pictures don’t actually do N justice…he is even more handsome in real life. No joke.

A day at the park

I first photographed this girls a little over a year ago…kinda crazy to think C wasn’t even crawling back then. They’re definitely not babies any more! We spent a few hours at the park enjoying the beautiful weather, and these two were all over the play equipment like monkeys.

Shooting  really young kids is more exhausting, since you can’t just tell a toddler “stand here!”, but it’s also really fun because it’s half a game. These two took a little while to relax, but by the end of the session they were pretty relaxed and we got some gorgeous portraits.

I think I am really lucky with the people I shoot. Not only in the looks department, but also that I’ve met some really cool folks. In addition to being one of the most chilled-out mums I know, Katy also runs her own jewelery business, Fox & Kitten, which you should definitely check out — her stuff is really unique and cute.

These are awesome photos, Katy and the family look gorgeous. Well done.

Liam’s 2nd Birthday

This little guy turned 2 recently! When I left for Japan, he was a cuddly, squishy little baby…when I came back 12 months later, he’d turned from a baby into a little powerhouse! I always used to go on about how much he looked like his mum…or his dad…or both. But these days, it’s incredible seeing him suddenly turn into his own little person.


Another big difference — when I left, Liam was an only child. Now he’s a big brother:)

Such a  little sweetheart. I love me some ‘amish cuddles.

Toddler hair removal…not painless, but effective!

One little ducky

Wow, I am so out of the blogging loop. I didn’t update while I was in Japan, and it just took me five tries to remember how to log in. Whoops. I might do a wrap-up post of my year in Japan later, but for now just enjoy this little cutie!

Afternoon tea, anyone?

“Duckies! Are they scary or do I want to feed them? Scary…no, feed them…no, scary…OK, let’s feed them…yay!…wait, OMG, that was scary!”
