growing up way too fast...

My baby is going to be a big brother in only a matter of months. I can't believe it!!! I'm trying to spend as much quality time as I can with Zavia before my attention will be split between two. He is such a delight! Yesterday we went for a verrrry long walk in search for the perfect location to take these shots. He had to stop and talk to every dog that we saw...which on a sunday morning at the beach on the sunny coast you can imagine all the stopping we did.

Here are the latest shots of my little/big man...

These two guys are the best of friends and are about to both become big brothers for the first time. Zavia's baby bro/sis is due in March next year and Hendrix' baby bro/sis is due in only 4 short weeks. Zavia loves having his special mate come over for play dates. Thanks H-doggy for being such a great mate.

Weekend away

We recently had a little weekend away (just the three of us) down at Kingscliff and Byron Bay. It was so nice to get away from the routine that we have found ourselves in lately. Here's just three photos that sum up our relaxing time together...

And on another note: I am very proud to announce that we will be welcoming our next little baby into the world late March/early April 2010. Super excited!!

Hot mumma...

This is my amazing, beautiful friend Ammi. She is also aunty to Minty (below). Ammi and Warwicks sweet babe is due mid July and I can't wait to meet him/her. We decided to do some studio shots first because the sunlight was a bit too harsh outside, then we went to my new favourite autumn/winter location because of the stunning colours. Thanks for such a great day Ammi, rest up...Ill be in touch soon.

Miss sassy boots

When Lauren showed me the outfits she had picked out for this maternity shoot, I knew we just couldn't go past those very sassy cowgirl boots...and rocked them she did.
A few months ago we had a session with just Lauren and her bump but this time we got Shane in on the action...and what a great job he did.
Enjoy the next few days together guys...

my cute boy

I haven't been feeling all that well lately, but when the sun came out for the first time in...I dont even remember how long...I had to take the opportunity to have a mini photo shoot with my little guy in our front garden. I find it amazing how little people seam to sense when those around them aren't feeling 100%, Zavia co-operated so well with me during this me lots of faces to work with. Here are just a few...

Not quite in time for mothers day...

Only a few weeks now and this couple will have their baby in their arms. Kahly & Dave came to see me this morning for their maternity shoot. We started off at my fav long grass spot, followed by a studio session. This is going to be one chilled out little baby if the parents are anything to go by...they were so easy going and did everything I ask them to do without hesitation. I look forward to having our newborn session together.
Hope you enjoy your sneak peek guys...I'll call you when they are all ready to view.

Toot Toot Thomas - Newborn photographer

The newest member of our quickly expanding family is settling into life at home with mum and dad. At only 8 days old, Justin and Kate welcomed us into their home to take some photos of this little guy. My heart just overflows with love for the little man, I cant wait to see him again. Here are just four of my favourite images so far...I have alot more to work on.

About Me

My photo
I have been fascinated with the art of photography for as long as I can remember...I have dabbled in it for years but my 'obsession' didn't really take hold until the birth of my son, Zavia. I was so upset by the lack of good photos we had from his first few weeks of life that it has become my challenge ever since to take as many beautiful images of him as possible. I realised how important it was to capture all of those little moments that shoot past so quickly...and why stop at photographing Zavia when I obviously have a (I hate to use this word...but...) passion for photographing children and families. That's how 'Sprout Photography' was born. You can check out my website at
