When I was little, I demanded that my mum provide me with a little brother - a sister absolutely would not do at all and thankfully, she delivered on that.
I was five when he was born, and I can still remember going to meet him for the first time. I was wearing a black and blue stripey-top with a shirt. I can remember my dad coming to pick me up from grandma's house, and I can remember walking up into the hospital while holding his hand.
It was pretty much love at first sight I think, and we were inseparable as kids growing up. But he's all grown up now (say what!) and in love (say what??) and has just built his first home with his partner Emma (what?!?) - all of which I find hard to believe because it only feels like yesterday he was a teeny tiny four year old going red all over with rage because I annoyed him so much, or a bite-sized seven year old offering to protect me from my bullies.
When he called me to tell me he'd met a girl, I knew she must be something special, and that she is. These two love each other so freely, which I think is so rare, and so beautiful. It makes my heart so happy to see him so happy.
I hope that you always make each other laugh and feel this way ♥
It's always such a pleasure to photograph you guys, especially when it's in winter and I can escape the Melbourne cold to wander around in shirts, shorts and flip slops on the beach!!
I'm hoping to be back on the Sunshine Coast over the Christmas break and will be offering a limited number of sessions - if you are interested in a session please contact me to book in!
I was worried that I wouldn't look like me - I might be too staged or that I'd be rocking too many 'fake' smiles. But Lecinda is one of the best photographers I have ever worked with; she made me feel so comfortable and calm (and even beautiful), and I knew I could trust her. I also loved all our communication in the lead up to the shoot and that was the decider in booking with her. She took a genuine interest in my business - who I am, who I work with and what I do, and showed a real understanding in what I wanted to achieve and how we could best do that.
When I saw the images for the first time it felt like I was seeing myself in my business for the very first time! I was over the moon with the images, Lecinda captured me perfectly and her beautiful images gave me an instant boost of confidence and huge motivation to get my website live.
I would book with her again in a heartbeat!
