McKinley Family - Port Stephens Family Photography

How amazing are the beach sunsets in Port Stephens? I could shoot here every day of the week and not get bored, and still find something different to capture. So when Luke booked in a family session and wanted a beachside location, I did my happy dance and got excited :)

Originally hailing from the country, these guys were super keen to show off their adorable daughter Lucy alongside the picturesque ocean. And I think it fits them perfectly! At only 7 months old, little Lucy was delighted by the sand crushing between her toes and was more than happy to stroll along with mum and dad and provide smiles galore for me.

We spent most of our session laughing at Lucy's facial expressions. It wasn't hard to see the adoration that Hayleigh and Luke have for their little girl, as you can feel the warmth of their smiles through their photos.

I love it when people welcome me into their lives and I'm able to witness their characters and family bonds. What's even more exciting is when clients want me to be a part of their continued story.

I can't wait for the wedding of these two beautiful people. Although from these photos, Lucy may steal the show :)
