NSW Central Coast Photographer – Brothers are the Best Friends

For the last few years, I have been lucky enough to photograph these young men for their annual family photographs and we always have the best afternoon together. I love the energy and fun they have with each session and aren’t afraid to get dirty and wet. They will be moving overseas in a few months time so we decided to take their photographs at the beach where their mum grew up. It has a special place in her heart and she will be taking these images with them to hang in their new home to remind them of Australia. I may be a little biased since these boys are my cousins sons but aren’t they adorable? I’m going to miss my annual session next year and seeing how much bigger they have grown.

Thanks so much for trusting me with your photos each year and I hope your new home brings lots of fun adventures and friends.

NSW Central Coast Photographer – Summer Holiday Part 2

After our farmstay we headed to Merry Beach to camp for 4 nights. Unfortunately for us the weather wasn’t on our side and we had super strong winds and a bit of rain which didn’t make our camping trip very enjoyable. Though there were hundreds of friendly kangaroos to keep us company and didn’t mind a pat or two. We drove around the area looking at other beaches and came across a beautiful lyrebird dancing for his mate.

We also visited a berry farm on the Clyde River where we could pick our own berries to take home. We picked for an hour or two and had enough blueberries to last a few days – so delicious. The girls loved wandering the rows of trees looking for the fattest, tastiest berries. After a hot morning of blueberry picking we indulged in one of their mixed berry icecreams and I have to say, it was the best icecream we’ve ever tasted. I’d drive back there just for the icecream!

NSW Central Coast Photographer – Summer Holiday Part 1

This year we planned a family holiday on the NSW South Coast for Christmas. The first 3 nights we spent on beautiful Kilfeacle Farm at Milton. It was absolutely stunning. The girls loved playing with the chickens and checking for eggs, walking through to paddocks to see the cows and little calves, we picked wild raspberries for our morning porridge (along with fresh rhubarb picked from the vege patch). We slept in a gorgeous little cottage, played in the treehouse, flew our kite and just totally relaxed.

The town of Milton is so beautiful with lots of little shops to potter around and an amazing vegetarian café called Pilgrims where we had lunch one day. Only 15 minutes away from the farm are some of the most beautiful beaches with crystal clear water and one beach had huge friendly stingrays that came up to our legs. Truly incredible.

Part 2 will be of our time camping at Merry Beach.
