Turning eighteen, and graduating high school, – new experiences and adventures await.  

All the love from family and friends that surrounds this lovely girl, she returns in spades.  Gemma’s joyfulness, ready smile and laughter promises to stand her in good stead as she sets off on the next exciting part of her life’s journey.

Time to celebrate your successes and embrace all the new opportunities ahead!

You now have a collection of amazing photographs, professionally printed and all wrapped up in your gorgeous handmade Folio Box.  An outdoor family photography session that was not only a day to remember on location at your Nan’s farm, but that gives you your precious memories as printed photographs to hold forever!  Just imagine how far you, and your photographs will travel…

 

So very happy we captured these images for you, Gem.

 

You have brains in your head.

You have feet in your shoes.

You can steer yourself

any direction you choose.

Out there things can happen,

and frequently do

to people as brainy

and footsy as you.

And when things start to happen,

don’t worry.  Don’t stew.

Just go right along.

You’ll start happening too.

~ Dr Seuss.

4 Generations Family Photography Session

4 generations of family photography session

The natural ease, the laughter, & the energy of this family photography  session for a family of 4 generations made for a great afternoon gathering on the Gold Coast.

Encouraged to bring a picnic & make a ‘base camp’ to have our large session from, just look at what this stylish family set up!

Their session ran in the same relaxed, happy way and was such a celebration of wonderful family connection. Editing their images, I can not help but smile, their close bonds and pleasure in each others’ company just shines. I just love being able to capture their connection for them for all time.  Their wall art is surely their new family heirloom!

How will you tell your story?  Take a look here at why it’s so important to actually turn your images into photographs by printing them.

Lot’s of gorgeous girl power at this soiree yesterday! Come and join this little girl’s first birthday cake smash photo shoot. Think fun confetti balloons that looked like they were filled with cherry blossom petals, frothy blush tulle, & a 100’s & 1000’s sprinkled cake made especially by Daddy!

Every shade of pink from shell to fushia transformed our studio’s little sunny garden into a joyous outdoor party space.  So much fun!  Even her Mummy donned a party skirt.

Branding Photography -Tunes Without Measure Or End – The Bagpiper

Business Branding Photography Session for The Bagpiper

“Let me play you tunes without measure or end.  

Tunes that are born to die without a herald

As a flight of storks rises from a marsh, circles,

and alights on the spot from which it rose.”

branding headshots

A young Gold Coast based musician, Callum Pert, both truly honours and respects the tradition of Scottish bagpiping, while also imbuing his art with a youthful energy that imparts it’s magic to older and younger generations alike.

When his business called for branding photography, the creativity flowed.  There really is nothing quite like the lingering, reverberating music of the bagpiper.  The passion, poise, and centuries old traditional kilt outfit all combine to captivate.

And during our shoot for his website, Callum’s performance certainly captivated every onlooker.

This University student has honed his skill of the pipes over the past 8 years and loves nothing more than to entertain others through the stirring reed instrument. And he also passes his knowledge onto other young people by teaching bagpipes.

Callum seemingly effortlessly displayed this talent during our photo session at the Botanic Gardens.

His command of the bagpipes by the creek on a desperately hot afternoon, drew an eclectic and mesmerised audience – a lovely elderly woman of Scottish origin herself who chatted to Callum and was transported back to her childhood and her mother’s love of bagpipes; and a young boy who planted himself by the creek to absorb the unmistakeable sound of the pipes as he watched a group of ducklings splashing about.  He didn’t leave til we did!

To experience Callum’s command of the bagpipes and the way he translates such an instrument steeped in tradition to the contemporary setting, check out his website – the bagpiper.com.au – and see what he offers.

Whether a ceremony, a party, function, or lessons, Callum’s got talent and enthusiasm in spades.
