Mini Photography Sessions for the Kids

Professional photos of your kids.

family photography

Have you ever wanted to entrust capturing your kids’ photographs to a professional photographer – but just never got around to it? Whether you’d really just love to have some pics that are higher res than your phone, or in fact have some beautiful images that you can print & actually hold, & can look at & enjoy for years to come, a mini photography session may be just what you want!

Consider a kids’ portrait mini photo session as a way to ‘dip your toes in the water’ & try out a professional photography session. If you have never experienced a full session of contemporary photography, or if you need the perfect way to regularly update your photos of those fast growing cherubs perhaps try a mini photo session !

Kids’ pics are one type of portraiture that we can’t put off til later.  Those fast growing limbs are not going to wait for us!  You only have to look back at their school photos to see that!

Mini sessions are fast, affordable, & you will have at least 3 images from your mini session.  Images that are professionally taken, styled, edited & can be archivally printed as stunning photographs at a professional lab for you.  Images that you will hold in your hands for ever.  Not only ever existing on usb, computer, or devices!  Your images can actually be photographs.

Art Exhibition of SQP fine art original photographs – Retrospect Galleries Byron Bay

Original art & fine art prints

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!

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.

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.
