It didn't take long chatting with Kate to realise just how important photographs were to her and her family.  After what was described as a very challenging birth (she was two hours away from the nearest hospital when she suddenly went into labour!).  Kate explained that the newborn shoot she already had booked quite some weeks away, had to be rescheduled to a much earlier date to ensure that she did not miss such a special time.  At just 11 days old, Emmet had his first photoshoot!

Fast forward a several months and look at darling Emmet (pictured above at 4 months old... how DIVINE does he look in his little red hoodie?). Kate was thrilled to tell us that ...

A big thank you to our lovely clients Jo, Jason, and their gorgeous boys Alexander and Flynn who travelled far and wide just to see us!  It is no mean feat organising getting the kids in the car for a trip to the supermarket, least of all to travel for a family photo shoot and then back again to view the images!  Jo had said after seeing our artwork hanging in the maternity ward of Waverley Private Hospital, where she recently had her youngest baby, Flynn, she loved our images and really wanted us to capture her family in our well known signature style of black and white portraits.

We helped Jo and Jason design a beautifully classic framed series of ...

When your Dad get the giggles at your family photo shoot...

Can I start this with a simple "hahahaha" because this family really made me giggle! Especially Dad, who once he started laughing, couldn't stop! The boys were awesome and I really admire how much they respect their parents and the way Mum & Dad are just big kids too and aren't afraid to jump in and have some fun! They even grabbed the first prop they could find (except Dad, who had to go and hunt for the perfect one..haha) and did some wicked posing for me! These guys were lucky enough to win their family photo shoot when they bid on it at the Villanova school carnival - nice one!

The ladies at Katrina Christ Photographer recently received a lovely letter from one of favorite families so we thought we would share Melissa’s beautiful words and images from her most recent photo shoot.

 

 

‘We have had so many "oh's" and "wow's" from friends and family as they have visited and seen our photo collection.  But most of all, Chris and I are just so thankful that you were able to capture a memory for us.  To Xavier's cheeky smiles to Laura's amazing innocence, and Jack's wonder - we love, love, love our photos and we can't express our overwhelming pride in the collection.  Thank you!’  Melissa

When parents of adult kids (and THEIR parents) are hilarious individuals and are cheekier than their own kids and Grandkids, you cannot help but basically have one of the funniest photo shoots ever! This Brisbane family are really really cool and Mum had her parents over for the afternoon and so they decided to jump in a few photos! It was adorable to see their portraits from 10 years ago up on the walls of their home and to see how much their beautiful girls have grown into young women! It's also really nice to see a bunch of adults just being kids again and having a great time together! And one more shout out....to the two sausage pups!

This little family is so adorable....how do we know? we have had the absolute pleasure of photographing them AGAIN now they have welcomes their little guy Winston into the family! He is a spitting image of Dad :) And seeing beautiful Ivy all grown up being a great big sister was very sweet! She was a little bit shy, but all lady and very dainty in her pretty white dress and tights! Mum wasn't feeling 100% that day, but you couldn't tell as she spun around with Ivy and crawled around after Winston....I guess your little ones bring it out of you! So lovely to see your smiling faces again and meet your gorgeous Winston, he is such a little ...

What a fantastic way to finish off the last shoot of 2010, with Monica, Tony and their three beautiful girls! Big sisters Tahlia and Neiva welcomed their little sister Kari to the family just a week before this shoot!   I had a wonderful chat with Monica on the phone when she initially phoned to book - she was keen to have Kari photographed as early as possible (they had just arrived home from hospital on the day we spoke!) and we were able to create a time for her straight away - thank you Jess for fitting this in as quickly as you could!   Monica was looking fantastic as a third time mum and Tony was besotted with his new little daughter. We managed to capture some ...

Awwww this little bubba was so alert for such a young age and look at all of that hair!! So deeply loved by his mum & dad (who are totally chilled out!). We had little Archer visit us at our East Brisbane studio where his Daddy brought his guitar to play Archer some music and capture his gorgeous baby boy with one of his most prized possessions. While he wasn't so sure about being ON the guitar, he was quite content snuggling inside dads guitar case. I love it when parents also play music to their unborn baby. So cute! And Mum was a total natural and so in love with her little boy.

Both of these girls were just adorable! Erin with her long curls and petite girly prettiness, Aleni with her amazing big eyes and dark hair… poor George will have to keep an eye on these two when their older!

We started off photographing our Signature black & white images here in the studio, Erin and Aleni both wore their jeans and white tops to start with and then changed into her gorgeous little fairy dress- very very cute! We then went for a walk outside near our studio and captured some of our Lifestyle Color images while passers by smiled as they watched these two getting their photos taken.   Although Melissa & George came to have their whole family photographed, they just couldn't resist ...

Oh my goodness, what stunning pregnancy images.  The beautiful Lynda, who was due with her baby boy, had her maternity images captured just in time!  Her daughter, 2 year old Mila, and her husband Adam also joined her.  We created a beautiful collection of family images, couple shots of Adam and Lynda together, and some exquisite photographs of the gorgeous Mila contemplating just exactly who was hiding out in mum’s tummy!  We’re sure she’s quite excited about the arrival of a new baby brother.

 Lynda and Adam we hope all is well in your – now slightly busier – family home.  We can’t wait to meet your newborn bundle of joy and steal a quick cuddle! xxx...
