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.
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!!!
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.”

Gorgeous extended family photography session on the Gold Coast – walks through the bamboo forest, frisbee on the lawn, meanderings through the garden paths, see-saws & swings. Oh, & a few images taken in-between!
Three beautiful sisters re-united. Parents, grandparents, partners, siblings, kiddies, & bubs-to-be! A fun celebration of family where the newest granddaughter was welcomed home from Canada, & a glowing new mum-to-be embraced with the love only a family can give. So much to celebrate!
A fun relaxed afternoon and amazing photographs to look back on for not only years to come, but to pass on for generation to generation.
One BIG Happy Family Gathering. Blessed with 4 generations of family spending the holidays together, this family celebrated with a family photography session capturing everyone relaxing & playing beachside. Beautiful though breezy, this summer’s afternoon made for some gorgeous light & images full of life & love! We embraced the dramatic weather and used it to our advantage capturing images full of movement and action! Grandparents, parents, sons, daughters, cousins, and partners – this family’s beautiful connections were wonderful to capture.
