Perspective | Melbourne Baby Photographer

    Perspective is a beautiful thing.
    Even more so when it’s turned on its head.
    Be adventurous.
    Be daring.
    Be different.
    Experience the world with a different view.
    The fun will naturally follow you.

    Her | Newborn Photographer Melbourne

    How soft her breath
    How sweet her smile
    How delicious her hair
    (and the highlights)
    How enormous her existence
    How honest her presence;
    How warm my heart.

    Nadia + Jimmy | Baie Wines

    As I arrived, the grass swayed in the warm summer breeze.
    Almost dancing with anticipation of what was to come that day.
    That day.
    Jim was calm.
    Not that I had expected anything else of him, yet his beautifully peaceful energy was comforting.
    Nadia floated.
    (Just as anyone would in J’Aton).
    As the wedding day progressed, this never changed.
    A day of considered tenderness.
    Of radiant and delicious fun.
    And well into the night the festivities played on.
    So much happiness comes from wedding days like this.
    Days when the smile never leaves your face.
    Days when your feet follow your heart.
    Days when incredible joy is plentiful.
    Days when Mr and Mrs Bartel say I do.
    Days like this.

    The untold story | Newborn Photography

    “The pages are still blank,
    but there is a miraculous feeling of the words being there,
    written in invisible ink and clamouring to become visible”.
    // Vladimir Nabokov

    January 2014 Photo a Day by Kristen Cook // Day 31

    And so it ends.
    The bliss.
    The chaos.
    The January journey.
    As  I watched them play this morning
    Rolling, tumbling, tickling, cuddling
    It felt right to end it here.
    In the perfectly imperfect moment that was before me.
    Because, at the end of the day,
    This… right here,
    Is the reason I do this year after year.
    For. Them.

    Life, just like riding down tunnel slides,
    Needs to be explored with great joy.

    He loves dinosaurs.
    Fights crime with superheroes.
    Has lasers that shoot from his hands.
    Rides his scooter like a pro.
    Tells stories about his toy cars.
    Pulls some of the best dance moves when no one is watching.
    Loves a good sword fight.
    Growls like a tiger.
    And still cuddles me.
    Every. Day.

    If there was ever an evening to let rainbow ice-cream drip down your hands as it melts in the heat,
    Tonight was it.
