Water pool maternity photography session

Professional Maternity Photography Session

Serenity & Contentedness. A beautiful mumma-to-be in relaxed repose during her maternity photography session on the Gold Coast.

Enveloped in warm water, this beautiful, soon-to-be mum made such an angelic, elegant, & gorgeous subject.  This was a maternity photography session with a difference!

Water Pool

Our mum-to-be was lying in a shallow pool of warm water so that her hair and gown flowed gently around her.

For this creative photo session I hand-painted softly coloured backdrops; made fresh flower floral headdresses; & wrapped my client in swaths of beautiful textiles.

Afterwards the fun continued when we made a pregnant belly cast with Suzie of The Art Garage – you can experience her amazing paintings on The Art Garage Facebook page.

A sweet belly cast was made with both mum & dad-to-be’s hands encased in plaster on the baby belly.  Suzie created a natural plaster belly cast like a gorgeous organic cocoon. And I can’t wait to photograph the newborn baby nestled inside!

A relaxed-paced afternoon of cuppas, rosé for the dad-to-be, a warm pool, flowers, & so much precious beauty!

Thank you to lovely Elissa & Dan for sharing your precious milestone, & for enveloping us all in your calm, blissful, up-for-anything manner!

I’m really looking forward to sharing some more images from this beautiful unique session.

Children’s photography session – What else is a girl to do once she’s created the perfect flower faery head-piece???

Outdoor photography session

The lingering summer provided a wonderful chance to capture this little faery frolicking in the garden for her children’s photography session by SQP.SQP - Coco garden faery 2-1

An afternoon spent fashioning an ‘ode to summer’ head-dress, resplendent with gums and blooms and paper butterflies, was the perfect excuse for creating beautiful childhood memories and capturing them in photographs.

Balancing the blooms & spinning around in the late afternoon sun was no easy feat, but this little visitor from Japan was unstoppable in spirit, energy, ideas & delight!  My little niece, Coco.

A Virtuoso in the Making… personal branding session

Personal Branding Session for an Artist

An inspiring young violinist, nature her auditorium, rocks & babbling creek her stage, the magpies her only accompaniment.  Lost in her creativity & expression.  You wouldn’t realise it, but she was in the middle of having a professional photoshoot to capture amazing marketing photographs.

What a remarkable opportunity to capture the beauty of Uno’s spontaneous performance. As if I were a fly on the wall – definitely a case of when the photographer is not director nor guide, but rather a creative permitted to experience such awesome musical talent, as the violinist & her instrument danced on oblivious to either me or my lens.  This was magic!  More than a few passers by were drawn to the music, stopping in their tracks mid power walk – and one even pulled over in their car to enjoy Uno’s talent.   SO MUCH FUN!!!

Marketing Photographs 

This young musician now has marketing photographs to use for her C.V.; orchestra applications; music CD covers and promotions.  Photographs that capture her in her element and convey to her audience all at once her passion, talent, dedication, and vibrance.

“This time I paid close attention to each and every note, to its sound and cadence and meaning, its place in the larger context of the melody. I began by playing carefully, gently, as if each note were a fragile, hesitant breath drawn into silence. As I went on, I let my bow sink ever so slightly into the strings, giving each note a sense of urgency I hadn’t heard before, that I hadn’t seen hiding between all the markings on the staff. The longer notes cried out for a bold, vivid crescendo that would make the room ring, but each time I resisted, allowing the sound to swell ever so slightly before returning it to the place of almost unbearable softness where it had started.”

The Violinist of Venice, A Story of Vivaldi.  Alyssa Palombo.

Fine Art Photography + Photos + Beeswax + Pigment = AMAZING!!!

Photographic Fine Art Originals and Prints

If you love colour & texture, & love the tactile nature of printed photographic images, then I think you’re going to just l-o-v-e my fine art works.  Originals and fine art prints available to buy.

A melding of ancient & modern techniques, I encapsulate my images in a beeswax-based medium originating from ancient Egypt & Greece.

I use paints, inks & collage to fuse my photographs in a beautiful patina.  Each piece is created from unique treatments, techniques, &  the outcome is unable to be fully managed or controlled.  Just like original film photography & image developing. You never know just how a work will turn out. Instinctive, inspired, spontaneous, richly layered,  & ethereal.   Fine Art.

Each part of my creativity and life as a photographer and an artist seems to meld when I work in these mediums. Photography & Fine Art together forming something purely original.

For Lovers of Interior Design

I’ve collated photographs of my artworks into a magazine, here, for you to enjoy – there’s something for everyone – portraits, landscape, interiors, abstracts.  Take a look.  If you see an art work that you would love to make your own, please get in touch.

As lavishly as the art pieces photograph, actually touching the gorgeous beeswax patina & looking into the multi-layers of mediums in each piece is truly, truly beautiful.

And just imagine having your contemporary portraits, a more conceptual arty portrait, or a decorative piece featuring something meaningful to you, as your own bespoke original art work.  My photographic images work beautifully when handcrafted into 3 dimensional original one-of-a-kind art works…. Can you tell this is my absolute ideal  creative medium to play with!  A combo of my 2 creative passions!  Originals and fine art prints available to make your own.
