Roche & Sascha Perth Engagement session

When you combine nature & love, you have a winning recipe 🙂

We had the absolute pleasure photographing Roche & Sascha celebrating their engagement in Perth.  We started our session at the cutest little “Doll house” entrance to a local estate in our area, then went down to the Mindarie Marina and ended it off with a beautiful greyish blue sunset at Claytons Beach.  I love the ocean, love sunsets and love photographing people during sunsets.  It’s safe to say you’ll probably find me sitting next to the ocean with my iphone in my hand at sunset waiting for the perfect time for someone … anyone … to play in the water so that I can photograph that silhouette 🙂

Anyway, I love capturing real moments and I’m in love with Love.  I love seeing that special spark and excitement in a couple’s eyes.  These 2 special people are so photogenic, you can clearly see that the camera loves them.  They were so easy to photograph.  We can not wait for their wedding in April.  They will make a gorgeous bridal couple don’t you think!!

Love

Family fun, love & laughter

The importance of doing combined family photo’s is just so important in my books.  These form part of your family history and will be cherished forever, you need to do this regularly … you will thank me later for this reminder 🙂

I’ve been photographing little Nicolas for the last 3 years and when Ina’s family came over to Perth from South Africa and Geraldton for Christmas, they decided to celebrate this with a combined photo session.  We had loads of fun and lots of laughters trying to get all the young ones (and older ones) to look at us simultaneously. Yes, we do love to capture the real unposed moments.  But we also know it’s super important for parents and grandparents to have a couple of images where everyone is looking into the camera.  True story!

We definitely had our work cut out for us, but we do love the end result.

I’ll be sharing Nicolas’s latest photo session on my blog soon, so keep an eye out for this.  In the mean time, enjoy browsing through these images and do contact me for your own family session!

Love

Karen’s Celebrating your Age session

When you meet women like Karen, you feel super inspired.

This stunning lady oozes with positivity and a lust for life.  She studied to become a nurse when she was in her 40’s and now is a qualified nurse who loves her job!  That is amazing.

Karen recently celebrated a very special birthday and wanted to celebrate her age with one of my beautiful styled studio sessions. I love it when women come in to the studio and allow us to add a little bit of our magic to their session.  She definitely is gorgeous and so we only had to enhance what was there already.   Welcome to our fab #over50 age group Karen, your best years is definitely here.

Thank you for being such an easy subject to photograph.  We sure did have great fun!

Love,

Natasha

Celebrating your Age – Desiree

When your subject is as beautiful inside as she is outside then you get THIS gorgeous end result.

I find that as we grow older we seem to forget to invest into certain things in our lives.  The one thing most of us don’t do/very seldom do, is a gorgeous photo session of ourself and our husband/partner.  We stop investing into professional portraiture when our kids leave home.  Why? … I came to the conclusion that we are very brainwashed by the advertising media.  We are bombarded by ad campaigns using young girls and couples and this way they are telling us that we don’t matter anymore.  I’ve noticed that hardly any of my friends and their friends ever arrange a photo session for themselves.

Us, the over 45 year young generation, need to celebrate our age, our lives and our husbands/partners.  We need to invest into our history and we need to leave something behind for our children and grand children to see how we celebrate life with all it’s ups and downs, wrinkles and all.  Celebrate milestones … wedding anniversaries, birthdays and friendships.  This year my hubby and I will be married 30 years.  On our 25th anniversary we arranged a photo session and this year we are doing the same.  This time around I’m going all out and having a dress made for the photo session.  Being a photographer in Joondalup, I have all the beautiful beaches surrounding me and so my options for locations is endless.

Anyway, back to my gorgeous couple … Desiree & Rob are a great couple who values beautiful portraiture.   They have a special wall in their house dedicated to showing their family history through photo’s. Each year they add more as their family grows larger.  Desiree, it was an honour to photograph your #celebratingyourage studio session.  You have a heart of gold and the smile of a cover girl.  Rob, you compliment Des in all her beauty and you 2 make a stunning couple.  Who would believe me if I said these 2 are the grandparents of 3 gorgeous little ones.

Dear blog reader, if you have not had any professional portraiture done for a while, you need to get in touch with me asap.  My glamour & portraiture studio is situated in Jindalee, in the northern suburbs of Perth.  It is so worth your while to add beautiful images to your history.

Much love,

Natasha
