Family Fun

This shoot was so much fun – there was football, soccer, jumping, synchronised cartwheels, recreating an image from ten years ago and genuine care for each other. There were plenty of color shots in there, my favorites just happen to be the black and whites.

Mini Minnie

I love capturing the bond between pets and their owners. This little gal has filled this house and heart with joy and is so independent yet cuddly all at the same time.  And its not just kids that grow up fast, this little girl was a lot smaller a short few weeks ago. Lucky the...

but I’m not photogenic…

Photogenic: A subject (generally a person) is photogenic if appearing aesthetically or physically attractive or appealing in photographs.  “But I’m not photogenic” you declare. I call bulls**t! 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...

Misses Molly & Maggie

I love Molly’s outlook on life: it doesn’t matter what color icy pole you get given, you make it work!  Wise words from a very astute 4 year old (high five to amazing parents).  These were taken a little while ago but as they were a gift they couldn’t appear online earlier – am sure...

Challenge the social media filter…

Some days I don’t love reality.  When you’re surviving on night naps not sleep.  When you’ve been pinched, scratched and bitten way more than you can handle.  When you’ve had to clean poop from the bath.  When you’ve worn out the ‘long days, short years’ mantra by saying it so many times it no longer...

Existing in photographs

Existing in photographs – it’s a thing and it’s important. So many of us duck, dodge, dip and dive when a camera is pointed our way. Who wants to be immortalised when we’re not feeling our most beautiful? We’re not as young as we used to be.. We’re having a fat day, a bad hair...
