In home session with Ryan & Brooke // Gold Coast Lifestyle Photographer
When I photograph a family I try capture them through the eyes of a storyteller. Its not those perfect posed moments but the more authentic connections, the honest, raw, love and emotional connections they have with each other and their children.
I was so honoured to be asked by Ryan & Brooke to document baby Ariah’s first days home and the connection in these photos will forever hold in their hearts no matter how many lifetimes pass.
I pulled into their beautiful home set high on a hill in the hinterlands of the Gold Coast, it was a warm welcome by their almost 3yr old. Brooke was holding little Ariah who has a head full of dark hair and only a short 7 days old. I watched on as her big sister Aurora stood their proud. She was telling me about her little sister and was so excited to share with me her tiny little wardrobe.
As I walk around the home; a 2 story Hampton style with beautiful wooden floors and staircase I follow Aurora down to the bottom floor, a rustic staircase & weatherboard floors, I took in the simple intricut details. A simple yet elegant country feel, the bright whites and simplistic décor would have anyone drooling over.
Ariah was so peaceful all wrapped up taking in her new surroundings, she slowly drifted off to sleep in her fathers arms. Brooke & I ducked off to get some mummy and me shots with the girls while Ryan made us all coffee which was complimented with delicious raw treats.
Aurora was so calm and patient it was the sweetest in home session and is well worth sharing.
To Ryan & Brooke, thank you for letting me come to your home and for being patient with me, for being real and for your truest most heartfelt selves.
I am so so grateful!
