Welcome Baby Theodore …


 

I offer newborn sessions either in your own home, or with me in North Curl Curl. Whatever works best for your family. When I come to your home, it’s more like a lifestyle session and I capture your family where they are most comfortable and relaxed. This is a great option when you already have older siblings.

I loved shooting in this beautiful, light-filled home to capture the arrival of baby Theodore. His sisters are totally smitten already.

My happy place …

There are some places in life that just make you smile. I’ve been looking forward to today’s hike for many years and it didn’t disappoint. An incredibly beautiful pocket of the world.

Bruno …


It’s been great to have the same wonderful guide that I had when I did this hiking trip 8 years ago. We were looking at a waterfall this afternoon and we jokingly called out to him ‘now stand on your head’. And far out, that’s exactly what he did!

Highly Commended …

So very excited to just receive this news … my series of photos of my gorgeous neighbour Vera has just been awarded a Highly Commended in the Portrait section of this competition. I so love working with my 87 year old muse.

Head for heights …

My app tells me we climbed 92 floors today. What it doesn’t measure is the heady mix of excitement and fear as we traversed several ridges during the day. Sheer drops on either side, with only the occasional cow to break your fall on the way down to the valley floor.

Let’s hike …


Six women being led up and down the mountains by a French guide. There are worse ways to spend your day.

French Alps …

Arrived in the French Alps today and it’s just magnificent. The smells of pine and fresh mountain air are a heady combination. Can’t wait until we start hiking in the morning.

Petit – vs- Grand …

I can’t tell the difference between left and right, so navigating by myself can lead to all sorts of adventures. I like to think of it as allowing serendipity into my travels. It means I often end up in obscure places … but I do get rewarded with scenes like this.

Rainbow …

I love my Paris photos to be in B+W, but this one just screams colour. Lots of rainbows brightening up the Marais district in support of LGBTQ rights. I crouched down next to the crossing for about 10 minutes, waiting for someone cool to come along … but the photography gods smiled on me and gave me this car instead.

All style …

I love watching French women ride bicycles … it’s usually done with high heels, a cigarette and no visible exertion. Compared to Australia where we are decked out in Lycra, dutifully wear our helmets and risk being fined for all manner of offences.

Lovers …

While walking around Paris today I’ve inadvertently been training for my hiking trip. 23kms covered … and that’s with no shopping! This photo was taken at 9pm, with the sun not setting for another hour. All the romantics making the most of the late sunshine and hot weather with waterfront picnics.

Paris …

I arrived in Paris this morning on a solo adventure as part of my self-declared, year long celebrations for my 50th. Left my family to look after themselves while I have a week in Paris, then a week hiking in the alps. As it’s a holiday from work, I’ve left my camera at home, but will upload the occasional phone photo. I’m still online for any work related queries.
