Majella Ray

Last weekend I headed to Alice Springs to spend a few wonderful days with my family, catch up with some friends as well as squeeze in a few sessions for some of my lovely clients. The biggest drawcard however was to meet my beautiful newborn niece, Majella for the very first time!

Before I get into the photos of the little beauty, here’s a hilarious outtake from the session. After a few initial shots, I asked Shell to strip Majella naked (coz we all know there’s nothing cuter than a nakie baby) – while she was getting settled, Charlie & Digby both proceeded to strip themselves naked and pose on the cushion :)

Without further ado, Majella.

Special thanks to my brother in law Dean for this last photo of Majella & I at our family picnic in the park. I love it!

I absolutely love colourful photographs, but there’s something about this baby session that made me want to show it all in black & white. The eyes!

I photographed this brand new family on my recent trip to Alice Springs. Emma, Darryl & their little girl Michelle.

At only 2 months old Michelle had the most beautiful deep brown eyes that were almost black!! I know all babies are born with blue eyes, but I didn’t realise they changed so quickly…

Little feet get me every time!

She just stares right through you.

Michelle had a big long sleep before the shoot, which on one hand made for a very content bub…but when I wanted a few sleepy shots she just kept flashing those eyes. We got there, even if only for 30 seconds :)

There’s nothing like a little one holding on to daddy’s finger. It’s like she has her whole world in her hands.

OK, so they’re not all black & white. This one just makes me smile every time. She looked like she was going to start crawling there an then, despite only being two months old!

Emma & Darryl, your little girl is absolutely adorable! I wish you all the best.

The cutest twinnies ever!!

This post is very special. Very very special!!! You see, these 2 gorgeous bubbas are my little twin nephews. Remember the maternity session with my sister?? Well, here’s what was inside that massive belly…

Meet Digby…the devious and cheeky one

and Charlie…the very serious one (he’s not always quite this serious, but I love the look)

You wouldn’t believe the effort that went into buying a few spares of Digby’s Lamby. A joint effort across 3 states and at least 5 Best & Less stores before finally coming up with the goods. He’d better not get over it & move onto another toy ;)

For some unknown reason, Digby HATED bath time for a few days. Charlie didn’t seem to mind, but I think was a little surprised I was taking pictures

Lastly, because I’m constantly reminded there’s not a photo of me on the site at all (I’ll be taking care of that a little more officially in the next few weeks!!!!) here’s one my sister took of me with the boys at the airport just before I had to get on the plane to head back home to Sydney.

Charlie & Digby, you both completely stole my heart. I miss you every day!
