Little Manly …

Earlier this month we made the most of a gorgeous Summer’s afternoon for a family shoot. So lucky to have all these beautiful local spots to explore and have as backdrops for our photos.

Year 6 …

The parents did an incredible job in setting up an excellent party for the Year 6 students to end their year. Keeping that many excited children entertained and fed is not for the faint hearted.

Year 6 …

Such a week of mixed emotions for the Year 6 students and families as they finish up after seven years at primary school. Good luck with the next step of the journey.

Curly school …

Schools have been working so hard to make end of year milestones happen under all the new COVID regulations. I photographed the Curly school presentation assemblies this week and the logistics for the school were mind-blowing …. 900 students, 660 families, six assemblies, celebrating student achievements with printed awards and medals, showcasing the year with videos, and all done with a limited and socially distanced audience. No singing was allowed, so the Kindy students adapted by performing a signed version of a song. And yes, I still cry during the Sunshine song.

Jade …

My son’s girlfriend has her Year 12 Formal tonight so we went for a visit to take some photos before she left. There were some children playing in the nearby park who came over to watch, and every time Jade + Max had a kiss there were giggles and shrieks of delight from the little crowd.

Melanie …

I’ve been photographing Melanie’s children over the last few years, so it was great to get her in front of my camera during our family session on the weekend. I must say, motherhood suits you.

Jai …

I’ve been listening to the radio today and hearing all the stories being shared as part of International Day of People with Disabilities. The most powerful has been a poem shared by a young man Oliver Mills which ends with the lines “See me, talk to me, hear me”. Such a simple request.
I’ve had the great pleasure of photographing Jai over the last few years. He is non-verbal but has a wonderful way of communicating his love to his family, always giving them the biggest and best hugs.

She was a little reluctant to give away any smiles at the start of our session, then luckily couldn’t hide them away any longer.
