Welcome Sadie – newborn photographer Townsville

You may remember Jess, Jesse and Asta from their recent pregnancy family shoot that I shared. This stage of life really is incredible with everything changing so quickly. Sometimes it can feel like a blur so it’s important to capture these special moments.

We wanted to do something a little different for this shoot. Jess is a strings music teacher and her love of music is woven into her family. Even little Asta plays a tiny violin. Because of this, I thought we would try for a shot of Sadie on a beautiful chello.

The shoot was shot in our Townsville photography studio. Of course Sadies safety comes first so at no time was she on the instrument without her Mum’s protective hand on her. Jess firstly placed Sadie on the cello holding onto her bottom (I took a shot) then Jess moved her hand placement onto Sadies head and shoulders (I took another shot). The end result (drumroll) is both of these images stitched together giving the illusion that Sadie was perched on the cello alone. Ta Darrrr! During the shoot, I made sure I also captured this family of four’s first family photos. Little Asta is beyond excited about being a big sister “It’s ok Sadie girl” she said as she soothed and fussed over her. Darling!

  • The best thing about Christmas... for me it’s the company. (Ok, the foods a close second 😆) We’ve got 30 coming to our place for Christmas lunch. I’m not taking bookings for a few days over the Christmas period and the other days are filling up fast with family shoots. If you want your family documented, now is the time to book 😃
  • Cousins - the connection between cousins always amazes me. They can live miles apart, rarely see each other but pick up right where they left off. When I look at this image I can’t help but see it through the eyes of their grandmother. I think she’s going to love it. Megan.
  • A storytelling portrait film of my beloved 94 year old grandmother, Iris. 
Ever since her children moved out and started their own families breakfast has been tradition at my Grandmothers house. Her number one priority has always been family and I'm grateful that the values she instilled in my Mother have been passed onto me. I hope you enjoy this little insight into the essence of someone I hold so close to my heart. 
If you're interested in me creating a storytelling film of someone you love... please get in touch. Megan :) Full film here - https://vimeo.com/370808467 (because I can’t get it to upload to IGTV... driving me mental... DM me with any tips to get it to work please)
  • I get asked all the time what my favourite thong to photograph is. I always answer, it’s  LOVE. Love shared between lovers, parents and children, pets and owners, the love for your job, your sister or your life. It’s all about love.
  • I got my baby fix! This little guy seriously is the most chilled baby ever! I did this shoot in his home... it just makes life so much easier for Mum, Dad and Bub. Often if parents are relaxed, baby is relaxed.

  • We all ended up in the water!!! It was an absolutely STUNNING day down at Pallarenda. I was lucky enough to be there with this gorgeous couple. About 30 minutes into shooting I said to them "I have an idea, do you have a towel in the car... will you get in the water?" The answer was a resounding YES. I'm so pleased we did! It was so beautiful in there I was completely in the zone and didn't even think of being eaten by a crocodile once. Incredible! 
Thanks for being so adventurous Tiffany and Gabrielle.

  • Hanging a family photo on the wall is not something everyone wants to do. I think sometimes people avoid having their photos taken because of this. There are other options!  A custom made album can be the perfect way to communicate the story of your family. When I design albums for families I like to give the parents a list of questions to ask the children.

What do you want to be when you grow up? Why? 
If you could have a superpower what would it be? Why?

Children really do say the funniest things so their answers are often unexpected. Check out one of my favourite albums on the blog. The Munro kids are so sweet -
