These two were house hunting and saw some pictures and instantly fell in love with this 95 year old home. They scoured the web and eventually found the address and not long after it was theirs. It's now been home for 6 years. This past weekend, I had so much fun spending the afternoon with them doing a family storytelling session. #theirstorystartedhere #mydreamhouse #familystorytellingsessions

The Last Time || From the moment you hold your baby in your arms, you will never be the same.
You might long for the person you were before, when you have freedom and time, and nothing in particular to worry about.
You will know tiredness like you never knew it before, and days will run into days that are exactly the same
Full of feedings and burping,
Nappy changes and crying,
Whining and fighting,
Naps or a lack of naps,
It might seem like a never-ending cycle.
But don’t forget …
There is a last time for everything.
There will come a time when you will feed your baby for the very last time.
They will fall asleep on you after a long day
And it will be the last time you ever hold your sleeping child.
One day you will carry them on your hip then set them down, and never pick them up that way again.
You will scrub their hair in the bath one night
And from that day on they will want to bathe alone.
They will hold your hand to cross the road,
Then never reach for it again.
They will creep into your room at midnight for cuddles,
And it will be the last night you ever wake to this.
They will kiss you goodbye at the school gate,
The next day they will ask to walk to the gate alone.
You will read a final bedtime story and wipe your last dirty face.
They will run to you with arms raised for the very last time.
The thing is, you won’t even know it’s the last time
Until there are no more times.
And even then, it will take you a while to realize.

So while you are living in these times, remember there are only so many of them
and when they are gone, you will yearn for just one more day of them.
For one last time. -Author Unknown // I did this beautiful session with @reviejane this week. It was originally going to be focussed around nursing but in the few short weeks leading up to the shoot her little one began self weaning and choosing a bottle instead. My first two treasures did just the same and it can feel so abrupt as their dependence on you for nourishment and comfort in this way disappears. The beauty is though, that it re-emerges in so many new ways that just look a little different to the previous season. #raisingmytribe #familystorytellingsessions

When these kind of enquiries land in my inbox I get so excited! Being invited into someones home, surrounded by the things they love and years of memories is seriously special.
I spent three hours with this sweet family, documenting life in their big old stunning Queenslander.
It's been home for them for about 6 years and has seen them through many stages of life. From raising their first daughter, to losing their unborn daughter at 20 weeks and recently welcoming a new little guy into the family.
Home is where our most precious memories live and unfold.

'Home is where one starts from' #tseliot #quotes #familystorytellingsessions

Being invited into homes to document the beauty of family time is incredible. Capturing the slow rhythms of a regular morning unfolding. Kids jumping on the trampoline in the warm winter sun, mum and dad watching on with a coffee from the local cafe. A platter of hot croissants and fruit laid out on a picnic rug. A laptop perched on the bench where mum works when there is a quiet moment. Reading with dad on the bunk bed, dance parties on the lounge room floor.
The heartbeat of a home can be seen in the beauty of these mundane everyday moments and being able to preserve them for families is the seriously the best. 🙌🏻 // image from a recent session with the gorgeous @aliceabba and her fam #lovemyjob #preservingstories #familystorytellingsessions

'Photos are the only way, to hold on to what you knew, because the moments they show never change, even when the people in them do' ~ e.h // A beautiful shot from a recent shoot with the lovely @reviejane cherishing those last days of feeding her little one. It's such a honour to capture these precious moments with mothers and families 💕#preserveyourstory #familystorytellingsessions #breastfeeding

''I promise to plant kisses like seeds on your body so in time you can grow to love yourself just as I love you'' #familystorytellingsessions

You are worth finding
You are worth knowing
You are worth loving
You + all your one million layers
Always hold that close ✨

Nothing like capturing that quiet look of admiration for the little miracle they created ✨#familystorytellingsessions #newbornphotography
