We would like to introduce you too…..

It is with great excitement that Alex & I announce the birth of our daughter Arlette Rosalie Mary Dewar. Born on the 15th July, weighing 6 pounds 7.

As some of my lovely clients know, it was a rough pregnancy and our little one had a rocky start to this world, requiring a short stay in Special Care.  Affectionately nicknamed “Diva”, Arlette already has us wrapped around her little finger and is slowly learning the demands of being a photographer’s daughter!

Ask any baby photographer and most will say, that posing and taking photographs of your own baby is not easy.  I found it almost impossible!  I started out with so many ideas that I wanted to do, dreamed up so many beautiful images while I was pregnant.  Forgetting my own number one rule with newborns.  THEY decide what images they want of themselves!  So with this in mind I let Arlette practically posed herself, I just gently persuaded in some areas of course;)

I remain on Maternity leave, however we look forward to returning to the studio to continue capturing beautiful memories for our clients very soon! In the meantime, here is the start of many images  – our dear Arlette in her first week xx

Carlton Gardens Engagement Photography | Lee Yen & Gary

Lee Yen told me they didn’t like photographs.  I think she was lying ;)  This gorgeous couple have been very busy with study, work and travel that we very almost didn’t find a date we could hold their engagement shoot!  We were all very excited for this session to also include their baby, who unfortunately wouldn’t be allowed at their wedding at Stones of the Yarra Valley.  And may I just say, THE most behaved puppy ever??!  Very excited to be sharing their amazing day at Stones very soon! x

Montsalvat Wedding Photography | Amy & Dan

Get ready for an epic post! As I said in their engagement photography post, “Amy and Dan are one of those couples who just ooze romance, love and fun”, and well, their wedding could almost be said to be themed around such!  What an amazing day… Honestly this is one of those weddings where I’m lost for words to describe it, so I’ll simply let the images do the talking!  Congratulations Amy & Dan, certainly a wedding to remember! xx

Krissy & Ivan | Encore St Kilda Wedding Photography Melbourne

I’ve known Krissy for almost 15 years and was so excited when she called to say that Ivan had proposed and would I photograph their wedding!
Krissy & Ivan met at a mutual friend’s 21st birthday party.  They were on a jumping castle.  Yep!  How cool is that!?? They have been together for 10 years, when last Christmas, Ivan asked Krissy to marry him.
Now for most Australian’s (ok mainly Victorian’s) Grand Final weekend is a big one.  Well, it was much bigger for these two lovebirds!  Two ceremony’s and the party of all parties at Encore in St Kilda.  I mentioned on our Facebook page that their wedding weekend was EPIC, and well, it was!
The first civil ceremony was under the amazing ‘Dome’ on Collins St, Melbourne.  Now normally the city can be a little difficult to navigate on a weekend, however not on Grand Final day.  It felt almost like a ghost town!  We went on a little journey around the city for our photos, whilst listening/watching to the grand final on one of the groomsman’s mobiles.  (I was super happy, he was not so much… yes you guessed right, I’m a Hawthorn supporter!)  We completed our adventure back at Encore in St Kilda, where we chilled out to watch the final quarter of the football and relax before the party started.  The reception was a wonderful celebration with photos of their parents and grandparents weddings, and few rounds of Macedonian dancing! Their first dance was AMAZING, and choreographed by Krissy’s sister and head bridesmaid, Trish.

The next morning was the traditional Macedonian Orthodox ceremony, followed by a lunch with close family & friends.
Congratulations Krissy & Ivan, it was a wonderful weekend!  We had a ball with you both x
