Blog - Portraiture Photographic Sessions

There is nothing quite like seeing your favourite images up on the walls. Digital files are great – until they are lost because your computer crashes and they have not been back up, but there is just something wonderful about hard copy images hanging on the wall.  Passing them each day, remembering the time you had the photographs taken.  Remembering how small the children were then… get the picture.

Recently I have noticed that clients are tending to go outside the box with the presentation of their images.  Canvas, metal, frames, Fine art paper – all on one wall.  Large montages making a lounge room wall feature.

Today, I got a text from a client who knew I would be so happy that they were showcasing my images on their wall.  Messages like these really make my day, as my heart goes into my images, and now they are proudly on display:)

The gorgeous Morgan wanted some images that were a little different, for her modelling Portfolio. So, Tony and I sought a very funky run down old building in Fortitude Valley, ready to be demolished, for this session. Despite climbing over bits of glass and broken bottles, we had an awesome time using different parts of the building as background.  Directed by the talented Sandra Sumina-Maclennan, Morgan graciously pulled off look after look – A Photographers Dream!  Here is just a handful of the session:)  Portrait Fortitude ValleyPINIMAGE Fortitude Valley BrisbanePINIMAGE Fortitude Valley BrisbanePINIMAGE Portrait SessionPINIMAGE


Kate and Nick were married in a delightful ceremony down by the water at Newstead Park, Brisbane.  A brilliant sunny day, light breeze and blue sky set the scene for the romantic exchanging of vows.   Following the service, we headed to a series of pre-determined locations to catch last light of the day.  Guests made their way to the very funky Lightspace in Fortitude Valley, where things started to heat up. Nick and Kate were announced as husband and wife and the night was off to a great start.  Following the formalities, we shot a Photobooth, at which guests wrote meaningful messages to the happy couple.  Thanks for an awesome day Kate and Nick.

Many would look at a newborn and think that taking photographs of them is pretty simple.  They are quiet and sleepy, right???   Wrong!!!!!  The reality is far from sleepy and quiet.  Typically speaking the first 30 minutes to an hour of a Newborn session are pretty intense – feeding, changing, getting to sleep, getting used to one another.  During this particular session, little Ava was having none of this sleep business.  Some awake time is pretty normal – but no, Ava was pretty happy hanging with the adults for as long as she could.  As a 10 day old little doll, she managed to stay awake and happy for a couple of hours!!!  In the end she decided to have a little wee nap, only to wake up 10 minutes later.  What a little trouper!

These photos are just gorgeous!!! Have to book a family session soon!

After the build up to the APPA’s (see my last post), my partner and I thought it might be a great opportunity to head south along the Great Ocean Road.  Neither of us had been there before, though we had both heard that it was amazing. We hired a car in Melbourne, and drove to Lorne, where we decided to stay for 3 nights.  The drive from Lorne to the 12 Apostles is 2.5 hours, so we headed of bright and early to make the most out of the day. WWWWEEEELLLLLL, what can I say.  Oh. MY. Goodness!  This part of our country is just spectacular.  The drive is one of the nicest I have ever done, and I hope to do it again one day really soon.  If you haven’t been, then do yourself a favour:)
