I hope you enjoy the shots of this little girl as much as I do xo
Milly ~miss nearly 4~ What can I say about this gorgeous little girl my niece. I've been lucky enough to photograph this little cutie since she was born and as she has grown so have I in my photography, she has pretty much always given me grief whenever I have tried to photograph her but this day she wanted her very own special photo's just like little miss Harper her baby cousin did so who am I to disappoint and wow just wow she is the most photogenic little girl I have worked with and that hair oh my gosh that hair, so much of it and extremely beautiful and lovely out around her face.
I hope you enjoy the shots of this little girl as much as I do xo
I first approach Amy about doing a glamor session for me earlier on in the year and as I have already had Amy in for a bridal boudoir session followed by her wedding I knew she had a natural beauty about her that the camera and I love, so I was delighted when she said she would, so after we booked in the date I went about planning and deciding how I wanted this session to flow and what theme I wanted to embrace, that's when I decided to go with Street glamor, so I let the planning and ideas being.
I decided to invite along some fellow photographer friends to join in on the fun while learning at the same time and even though I sprung this on Amy last minute she didn't complain and totally rocked her shoot but you can already see that.
Photography isn't about what's wrong or right its about getting in there taking a shot and going do I love it or if not what can I do to make it better, photography is about having rules but than breaking every single one of them. My advice is always if you love it than that's all that matters, there will be plenty of people who do but than also some that don't but your work is yours so just be true to yourself.
A massive shout out to the following

Model Amy Kearns
And Janine & Aaron for coming along to enjoy the shoot with.
In February of this year Janine from Evoke Photography and Portraits invited me along to Dakina's project shoot along with some other amazing local photographers in our area. We laughed we photograph we learn and most of all we had fun doing so with like minded people.
Our model Dakina a 13 year old girl was amazing and did all that we asked of her, I mean its hard enough for a model to to take directions without 5 photographers telling her what to do but she rocked it and is a true natural.
I'd like to thank Janine for popping this project together and also Dakina's parents who not only allowed us to shoot on the beautiful property but that also helped out with the horse they let us use and of course giving the permission to capture your amazingly beautiful daughter, I also got a shot of her equality beautiful younger sister with her horse.
Janine & myself will also be putting together future project/workshop shoots were you can book in to learn from the both of us and have loads of fun doing so, our styles are both completely different yet the fundamentals of taking the image are the same, we will be happy to teach all that we haven learn, while providing you with something amazing to capture. For information will be provided once we have arranged the next project shoot, if you would like to be notified please contact me with an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and leave your details so you can be sure to be invited to the next one.

Thank-you to all involved and that helped out on the day.
Earlier this year I decided I wanted to do a project shoot and as the carnival was in town I thought what a perfect place to get creative, so I found these amazing models Vaida & Tyhra who were both keen and excited to go along with the dramatic vision I had in mind and we had a blast while doing so.
The girls weren't fussed with the extra attention they were receiving while out in the public and this is what helped create some fun shoots.
Thankyou to my models- Vaida & Tyhra

Introducing little miss Stephanie who at just 5 weeks & 2 days old was the perfect little angel and slept through her session. Upon arriving at her house mum grave me a brief of princess and beach theme and so that's what we did, not only was she a little princess for this session she also became the cutest little mermaid I've ever seen.
Miss Stephanie was in such a hurry to meet her mum that she decided to arrive well before her due date so at 5 weeks she still weigh less than my little guy did at full term, she had the cutest little fingers, toes and lips.
Miss Stephanie you melt my heart and I am sure you melt anyone's heart that you come into contact with, thank-you for being such a little angel.
I've been trying to catch up on my blogging to keep you all up to date with all these amazing weddings I get the chance to capture.
This was my sisters wedding that I was asked to capture for them in a private ceremony held on Jim's family property.
This was a surprise wedding so the only one's that knew were their close family and of course the guest in attendance.
Introducing Master Darcy 2 weeks new. Thank-you Trudie & Brett for sharing your little man with me for a couple of hours, I love the chance to have cuddles with a newborn bubba.
Here is a sneak peek at his gallery, this little guy rocked his session.
I had the pleasure of capturing the lovely Amy & Dillion's wedding at Wauchope country club.
Amy & Dillon are both some of the loveliest most beautiful down to earth couple and you can see this in the close family & friends they had surrounding them to help celebrate this gorgeous day.
I love when my brides give me free Raine to let me shoot as I please, to let me work to create a view of their special day through my eyes/lens, not all brides allow this but Amy was one of these, sure I am only human and can't be in 10 places at once but I work my hardest to capture as many moments as possible, so please enjoy a small spinet of their wedding through my eyes.
A quick shout out to some of the wonderful venues and people who helped make this day special for Amy & Dillion.

Candice & Jeremy's wedding day was full of adventure with a late set-up of the ceremony to the threatening clouds of rain before the ceremony was about to start, but nature had other plans and out popped the beautiful sun and blue sky in between the clouds to make for a magical and amazing coastal setting wind mill hill in Port Macquarie.
