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!
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.
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.
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.
