Lifestyle Portraits

A Rose Among the Staessens

Some of you might remember the Staessen family from Kevin and Robyn’s wedding pics, puppy pics, and their extended family pics taken a year ago shortly after Logan was born. More recently, we got some gorgeous fun pics of pregnant Robyn on Kevin’s KTM. In this most recent shoot, little Erin Rose was introduced to Staessen-Photo-Madness and as always their pics are a true reflection of their incredible sense of fun and love of photography.

Kevin & Robyn’s Erin Rose Bump

Kevin and Robyn. Notorious crazies. Sean and I have shot their engagement pics, wedding, puppy pawtraits, extended family portraits, and now their first baby bump. And still I’m surprised at their spontaneity and fun ideas at each shoot! We had incredibly soft early-morning light and it was lovely to see Hansa and Reeva all grown up. Reeva was showing off her tummy more than Robyn! A few days later little Erin Rose was born.  By Leanne Williams.

Dean, Alice & Nathan

Dean, Alice and their smiley 6-month-old Nathan did some lifestyle portraits to practice for their wedding, which is to be held at the Moon and Sixpence in September next year.  Sean joined us to help with the off camera flash and to spend some time getting to know them since he’ll be shooting their wedding video.  Two of Dean and Alice’s friends joined us to help with Nathan, and they provided incredible funny faces, rapping and dancing to… Continue reading

Jenna & Adriana’s Debutantes

Jenna and Adriana’s mums commissioned me for a pre-debutante ball shoot, to get some pics of them in their exsquisite dresses. Jenna’s dress-maker is one of my absolute favourites. Not only are her dresses lovely, the fit is always perfect, and the wearers can actually move around easily. The girls had a fabulous time at their ball, and now have some beautiful, lasting memoirs of the evening.  By Leanne Williams.
