Active Albert

I had a blast at this photo shoot.  We headed to one of Albert’s favorite locations and off he went!  Not sure I’ve had to do some much running during a session before!  (Specially whilst baby wearing!!)  Behind the scenes shot taken by his mum included below as well 🙂

Workout Wonder Woman

Feeling very inspired by Louise who worked so hard to get this healthy and then celebrated with a gym photoshoot… Okay so not that inspired that I’d actually consider a gym recreationally or eat less carbs… but the kinda ‘you go girl, I’m gunna have one less donut today’ kinda inspired. In all seriousness though...

Clothes maketh the (wo)man?

Here are pictures of Riley in pink looking and being Riley.  And there are pictures of Riley not in pink looking and being Riley.  They’re clothes, not a description of her preferences and personality.  Their function is not dependent on her gender! We’re getting to the stage where things outside of our little family unit...

Windy mid-winter portraits on the pier

I took some mid-winter family portraits with one of the loveliest families I’ve ever met .  Usually I reject shots for blinking and talking but had to add hair obscuring faces to the list on this cold and blustery day.  There was one person not super interested in being photographed but was easily distracted by...

Images that shine…

Was a pleasure to shoot Jane from U Shine Resumes at her personal branding session creating images to refresh her website and social media content – plus there were puppy hugs! A personal branding package is more than just traditional headshots.  We can include your work area, how you work, lifestyle shots, detailed shots of...

This translates to ‘I’m not comfortable in my skin’ (and why are you judging your self worth on your appearance anyways?!?) Not liking how you look in photos is very...

Rewriting Motherhood Forum – The Babes Project

I was very excited to be invited to photograph for The Babes Project again.  These guys not only do amazing work supporting soon to be mums, but are also so very welcoming of Riley when she comes packed with my cameras.  The Rewriting Motherhood Forum was another stellar event providing inspiration, laughter and empowerment through...

Tangs Design Product Photography

Was great fun to do some product photography over the last couple of weeks for Tangs Design.  These gorgeous earrings are handmade in their Canberra studio.  With nature as inspiration I used flowers and fallen leaves to style the shots.  I am now ninja level expert at balancing earrings on floral arrangements!  The usual scenario is...

When did I become that mum?

When did I become that mum that would rather clean up her mess than stop her making it? When I follow her around the supermarket saying ‘Sorry’ and ‘Just go around’ versus wrestling her into the trolley? Where I end up buying the jar of sprinkles she’s been using as maracas during the entire shopping...

The Real Amanda

My best tip for amazing headshots? Let your inner confidence shine. So often the lighting, the pose, the smile – everything in a photo is perfect except the glint of fear or self doubt in the eyes of the subject.  “But I’m not photogenic!” you declare, “And I hate getting in front of a camera…”  Then...
