Original art & fine art prints

SQP fine art original

Retrospect Galleries Byron Bay

As well as taking professional photographs for others, and writing content, I create photo encaustic artworks available for purchase as originals and fine art prints.

Some of my original photo encaustic artworks are showing as part of Byron Bay Retrospect Gallery’s exhibition, “Rime of the Ancient Mariner”.

If you find yourself in Byron Bay, make your way to the contemporary gallery on Jonson Street, & be inspired by some fantastic artworks of many different mediums.

All pieces featuring in the exhibition hold a link with the ocean, beach, & all things aquatic.  What a great prelude to Summer.

If you’d like to know more about my fine art work & the process of encaustics, please take a look at my previous blog post from March.

On location styling shoot – Lifestyle Photography

Lifestyle Photography Sessions for portrait, website, product shoots.

A relaxed, garden-tea inspired set up for a portrait client’s special lifestyle photography session sets the scene for a beautiful on location styling shoot.

When photographing at my home studio our creativity and styling really come to the fore.  I have unique, stylish and contemporary props and set ups to create beautiful looks for portrait, website & socials, and product photography sessions.

Lifestyle photography sessions and styling shoots are a great way to lend your portrait session a relaxed vibe.  And a relaxed you means fabulous images!

Thanks to Original Occasion for the shimmery chandelier & tea lights – they caught the light beautifully, no doubt my client will shine!

Branding and Headshots – The Resumé Originated 5 Centuries Ago – But Times Are A Changing…

Personal Branding for Resumé & C.V.

Leonardo Da Vinci is accredited with the origin of the resumé.  And in this era of immediate visual communication, social media, & web presence, your C.V. is as crucial as ever. An engaging C.V. is your number one priority to make an impression and stand out in the job market.

Branding and Headshot Photographs

Professional branding and headshot photography is your key to success.  Online engagement demands professional images.

“It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them.

They went out and happened to things.”         

                                                                                                   Leonardo Da Vinci

According to Forbes Magazine, times have changed in even the most recent past, and so too should your C.V.

Selling your personal brand.

Approaching your C.V. like a marketing document and selling your ‘personal brand’ is what it’s all about.

Your image, and how it represents your personal brand is as valuable in marketing yourself, as it is in business.

Including a professional photograph on your resumé adds value, and should give prospective employers or recruitment agents an accurate idea of who you are, how you want to be perceived, and what the experience of working with you might be like.

Sound like a big ask from a photograph?

With a Masters in Business Communications and as an accredited professional photographer, helping with personal branding, reviewing C.V’s, writing content, and styling & creating professional images that convey your ‘personal brand’, as Forbes put it, is the perfect fit for me.

I had the absolute pleasure of working with this motivated client yesterday, to create her professional images for her C.V.

I can’t wait to hear how she sets about ‘making things happen’ for herself.  What an asset to any office and business this woman is – the warmth, connection, professionalism, and approachability she exudes is the real deal!

Newborn Baby Photography – Remember When….

Newborn Baby Photography has a small window of opportunity, but the benefits of a professional photography session last many lifetimes.

Newborn babies grow so fast.  From day-to-day they change before your very eyes.  Although babies are beautiful photographed at any age, – photographing newborns to capture them in their curly, just-born newness is best within the first couple of weeks of life.  Professional newborn baby photography is an art and skill in itself, and a qualified professional photographer that specialises in newborn baby photography should be your first consideration.

Having beautiful photographs from your baby’s first weeks are priceless.  These photos will be passed down from generation to generation.  Start your new family heirlooms.

Here are some more gorgeous images celebrating the arrival of little cherub Layla.

It was such a gorgeous moment when she sensed her Mumma beside her and turned her little head to snuggle in.

Maternity Photography & Pregnancy Belly Cast

During her beautiful Mumma’s maternity photo session, Suzie from The Art Garage was on hand to make a belly cast with the mum-&-dad-to-be’s hands gently enveloping the baby belly.

Suzie paints & decorates the casts, but in this case we chose to leave it organic & egg shell & cocoon like. Beautifully suited to my hand felted wraps & the natural elements inspired maternity shoot.  SQP photographed an amazing water pool shoot which you can see here.

There is no more wonderful & original a ‘prop’ for the newborn session than to have your little one once again cocooned & cradled in the belly cast.

These awe-inspiring little newborns  grow so fast & once you have them in your arms, trying to imagine them as they were in a belly seems almost impossible.

At almost 4 weeks old, little Layla Annabelle has already grown & changed so much.  Remember When…
