Making memories for keeps

Over the last year I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to capture quite a few families visiting Melbourne from Singapore. Visiting Melbourne on family holidays, these families have set aside a couple of hours to combine the fun of visiting somewhere new with the experience of hiring a family photographer to make long-lasting memories. Such a beautiful idea, and quite a lot easier than chasing your family around with a camera yourself!

I adored meeting this gorgeous growing family, soon to welcome another little soul to their clan, for a combined maternity and family session.  We met up at Point King beach in Portsea on the Mornington Peninsula, as the family were staying in nearby Fingal. With perfectly mild late summer weather, this was such a relaxing way to explore one of our most stunning beaches. It is really an honour to be asked to document a family's love (not to mention the fleeting beauty of an expecting mother), and an afternoon in their life, this way, and I hope these images bring this family joy for generations.


//Sarah Black is one of Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula's most sought after family lifestyle, and newborn, photographers.

It is the sum of it all that will count. The space we took for good and whole and loved, the rooms of light with which we filled our lungs even on the days when it was harder to breathe.  There will be details buried or shining in the mass, asking to be picked over, and admired or pushed aside in regret, but eventually the years will gather into themselves and paint their own story. The one in which we were complete, always, even when we had room for more.
