underwater pregnancy shoot

There is something about the pregnant form under water...Sarah makes being pregnant look so effortless and and out of water. I've also never met a woman in her eighth month of pregnancy that is as fit as Sarah. We literally tread water for about 2 hours and it didn't fase her at on the other hand, even with flippers on, I was exhausted!

I am so thrilled for Luke and Sarah and can't wait to meet this new little life in a few short weeks.

Sweet baby girl

Ahh babies!!...I just love to photograph the freshness of a newborn. Little baby A came in for her photo shoot at just over a week old and was such a sleepy little thing. It's little ones like this that make me (almost) clucky again.

Tim and Mon are getting married...

My friends Tim and Mon are getting married in November. I can't wait to capture the love on their special day.

The adventures of Harrisson

Back at the beginning of July, I had this very special shoot with Harry and his mum and dad. After months of planning, waiting for bad hair cuts to grow out, bad weather, general winter sicknesses, we finally made it up to Gardner's Falls to capture this little boy in all his boyish goodness. I've often heard that 2 year olds are the hardest to photograph because they are stretching their independent with this little bit of knowledge under our caps, we simply let the Independence stretch away. This is my favourite way to shoot, we chose the one location to shoot at, scattered a few props (to go with our adventure theme) around the location and just shot whatever happened. It was so much fun to watch harry discover his surroundings with no pressure at all to perform. I love the interaction he had with his mum and dad too...a very special little family indeed.

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
