Dhana and Sergio

Not even rain could keep the smiles away when these 2 said I do in Brisbane, an incredible church wedding followed by a reception at Tattersalls in the CBD.

Haley is one of my favourite people in the whole wide world – so excited I got to photograph her rockstar family with little Jarlie stealing the show <3

Baby Brooklyn

I was lucky enough to photograph Corrie and David’s wedding in 2013!

Since then these two spent years dreaming and hoping for this tiny little miracle and now have a lifetime to cherish her. Congratulations again to Corrie and David on your precious baby girl, she is just beautiful xo

The Leonard Family

So many of us want to know the secret of a long and happy marriage! After spending an afternoon with this gorgeous bunch who were celebrating 50 whole years since Liz and Richard said ‘I do’  – it’s clear to me that connection to family and a great sense of humour is a pretty good indication!

Plus it was all kinds of exciting going back to this beautiful family property on Noosa North Shore. This amazing setting is also where I photographed daughter Amy’s marriage to Tyson nearly 6 years ago.

Wright Family Celebration

The Wright family travelled from near and far to celebrate Wayne’s 70th birthday at Mooloolaba – what better idea to honour a man so proud of his family than to create some special portraits to remember the occasion by? Even dark clouds, wild waves and the threat of rain couldn’t stop the smiles, giggles, cuddles and fun we had in creating these photos. Thank you Wright for family for having me along to celebrate with you!

Coyle Family <3

Honestly – the photoshoots I get most excited about follow the journey from pregnancy to baby. I loved, loved working with the Coyle family – first anticipating their new baby and then welcoming little (but big) Tyrone to the world.

Steve wrote me the loveliest email after they received their portraits and with his permission I share it at the bottom of this post 🙂

Dear Anna,

Naoko and myself would like to say a big thank you for our wonderful photos. We are very happy with the results. The difficult part is now trying to choose our favourites to proudly display at home. I was particularly blown away with the silhouette style you took of Naoko and many of the pictures with Tyrone. If there is any opportunity to use your services once more we will not hesitate to book you again and of course I am more than happy to recommend you to others seeking amazing, quality photos with fantastic service. Thank you again Anna.

Ash and Ant got married <3

There are so many things I would love to say and share about this wedding, but I think groom Anthony summed it up when he first saw Ash at the end of the aisle ‘wow..wow…wow…wow…wow’ !

Storms had been threatening to wash out this garden wedding all week and Ash is very certain her Dad (who is sadly no longer with us) was behind the rain stopping for their amazing ceremony at House of Laurels Maleny. The Harley pictured below was her fathers and it was a really special to see it included on the day.

I have to say too that I loved photographing this couple and their bridal party – I’m not sure I’ve ever met a bunch of such well-organised yet fun people at the same time! It’s a testament to the wonderful couple Ash and Ant are, that they have surrounded themselves with this group and I’m happy to count them as friends of my own.

We got some amazing photos in right before the storm hit and it was time for Ash and Ant to head to their reception – so incredibly blessed!

Congratulations to both of you – I was honoured to photograph your family when Jaxon was born and I am so happy to have been there for your wedding too – thank you for continuing the story with me xo

Baby Asher <3

This sweet little happy boy was a dream to photograph and so very loved by his Mum Laura and Dad Grant 🙂

Hanlon Family

When Nikki made her original booking with me her beautiful dog Oz had other ideas and became unwell. Fast-forward nearly a year he has made a full recovery and Nikki has a beautiful bump to show off – a brother on the way for Princess Lily. Lily is just beautiful and was quite convinced this photoshoot was all about her and as she will be the only child for just a short while longer it was so fantastic focussing on the gorgeous relationship she has with her Mum and Oz. Plus what a shining star this aspiring gymnast is! Josh and Nikki couldn’t be more in love or happier and I’m so excited for the next chapter in their story when baby makes five!
