When A new Sibling Arrives

I really do love when my clients come back with their newest addition to have newborn photography session with me. Why do I love it? I get to see how much the older siblings have changed since their last session and see that love they have for their new baby brother or sister. Some parents like to go completely different for siblings where as this Mum wanted me to recreate a couple of images that I did with the older sister. This was so she could put her wall art, side by side to see how similar or different they were. I have added the an...


When Do I Need To Book In My Maternity or Newborn Session

So you have found out you are expecting a new family member, now all the excitement starts of getting ready for a baby in your home and hearts. This is when the first of many lists that you will be writing and re-writing of all the items you need to buy, things you need to get done before the baby arrives and those great safe spots that you put things and can never remember where it was! This is a special moment that you want to cherish and remember how round your pregnancy belly was and how this little person who was growing inside you...


Sisters newborn sessions

I love when my clients return with their new addition for their new baby's newborn photography session with Blissful Moments Photography in my home studio in Mackay. Some parents want completely different style, colour and feel to the session and some want to recreate poses with different colour elements to be able to compare. This little one's parents wanted certain poses redone to be able to display the prints together. I have to say that when I did the older siblings session we got this beautiful smile in this pose and I was hoping...


Not Just A USB

I want you to be honest with yourself and the reason why you have not printed beautiful art from your photography sessions? Is it because you don't know where to print, haven't had time to organise, not sure whether canvas, wood, framed or how big to print? The reason you had the session was to document this stage in your life with beautiful art for your home, wasn't it? Not just to have a usb or digital files sitting on your computer. At Blissful Moments Photography we take the stress out of creating art for your home and family. We...


Keeping It Simple in White – Blissful Moments Photography

As you know I love to create beautiful bright colourful images for my clients, however that doesn't mean that I don't do white or neutral colours. This family really just wanted white and light images for their newborn and family session, so that is what we did. Together clients and I discuss what colours the want to use for their session so it compliments their home and vision for the art to be created for their home.


What About That Pose

We all have those moments when we remember something we were meant to do but completely forgot and usually remember very late at night. I had one of those moments earlier this week after I had done this little man's newborn session and sitting at my computer editing images from another session. I looked up at a beautiful wood print that sits above my computer screen of a sweet little baby boy wrapped in a blue wrap on a navy blue fur and remembered that the parents from the session today wanted this pose done! I know how much Mum loved...

Why Choose A Professional Photographer

In this day and age, there are many people who call themselves a "professional". But how can you be sure? Blissful Moments Photography in Mackay is an Accredited Professional Photographer with the AIPP. It is an unfortunate fact that in Australia, the imaging industry is not held accountable to the same legal status and regulatory requirements as other Government and state-regulated professions. In the area of creative services, this can often be seen as a good thing, allowing fresh new people to work in this area without the...


Beautiful Albums – Blissful Moments Photography

Now is a great time to think about what you want to do with your images from your photography session with Blissful Moments Photography or the digital files that you have sitting in a draw? Why did you have the session in the first place, was it to have beautiful art pieces in your home to display this moment in time that you cherish? Did you know that I can create an album design either using images from your session with me or the digital files you have at home from another session? Have you actually got them printed or maybe made an...
