Samuel – 6 months old

I can’t believe we’re already at 6 months! As the adage goes, time flies when you’re having fun, and a bundle of fun you are. I am loving every minute with you Sam. You bring so much happiness and joy into my life simply for being you.

I was lucky enough to take photos of Mikaela and baby Rylan when he was a newborn and again with dad James as he hit 8 months. This love-filled fam are originally from Tweed and at the time of our shoot they were living on the Northern Beaches.

The Latter Family

This was a special session for me to photograph. The Latter family have a long history with the Richardsons going back nearly 30 years now! My sister Shelley has been friends with Lizzy since they were in preschool and they were best friends all through school. Mum and Kerry also ran a scrapbooking business together back in the early 2000’s (photography is a shared family interest!).

Sibling love

I love watching the bond between Sam and Phoenix develop. At this point, it’s mostly Phoenix’s reactions as Sammy doesn’t do much! Although he does seem to love cuddles with her and he often seems to be studying her face.

Two months of YOU! Our cuddly, squishy, mostly-serious-but-sometimes-smiley Sammy. You’re alert and inquisitive, you’re making more and more sounds and you’re testing out that mouth with those gorgeous lopsided smiles. You love nothing more than falling asleep or simply chilling in my arms which is my favourite thing in the world. You change in looks […]
