One fine day

After a spell of really hot weather, it was nice to have a lovely fine late afternoon photo session. The avocado trees on the family farm were lushes and green and the fallen leaves made for some fun photos with the kids! The special part about photographing families is seeing personalities shine through. With only…

Official family portraits…of the pet kind!

When a new family member comes along and he looks as cute as Maverick, there’s no doubt that a new ‘family’ portrait needs to be taken. At only a few months old, this little fella flops, jumps, runs, falls, yaps rather than barks, and spends a lot of his time laying upside down! His marble-coloured…

Spring is in the air!

Springtime is here and it’s a great time for family photos. Outside in the sunshine, the spring breeze and away from the cool winter days…..hooray! Lake Bonney is one of the great places around the Riverland for family photos and photos as the sun sets are amazing. Martin’s Bend, riverside sandbars, on a farm, at…

Blossom + Mum and Me session

When life gets away from you and the busy-ness of day-to-day activities just keep on going, it’s a blessing to be able to slow down for a while and enjoy some precious moments together. Children change, they mature, they grow, and it can be hard to remember what they were like a few years ago…

Two beauties, inside and out!

The almond blossoms are so pretty for the setting of a ‘Mum and Me’ mixed with a Blossom Beauty photo session. It was so much fun photographing these two lovely souls, and they had a lot of fun laughing, making some great memories, and even chasing the dog! It was a special afternoon they’ll remember…

Perspective

There are times when standing on the ground is not the best perspective to take a photo from. In fact, some of the best photos I’ve taken have been captured when I’m lying on the ground, in a plane or thinking outside the box. At Emma’s photoshoot with Flash, I wanted just a little bit…

The extras that make great photos

When I’m taking photos, whether it’s portraits of people or pets, I always look for the ‘behind the scenes’ images that show relationships and trust, and when people are their most comfortable and relaxed. The moments that are captured when someone isn’t looking, they’re busy doing something, or they’re in a world of their own.…

So much fun!

I had such a great time photographing Emma and Flash a while ago I just couldn’t resist posting some more photos. The first post can be found here. Precious memories of your horse or pet can be captured and created into beautiful prints to display in your home. Enquiries can be made here.

Beauty reigns!

I had the pleasure of photographing a handsome chestnut coloured solid Paintbred horse, Flash, and his lovely owner, Emma. A warm summer afternoon, the setting sun, and a very well-behaved horse made for a great photo session. Flash and Emma were a delight to photograph and Emma clearly knows Flash very well. Their bond is…

What to wear to a portrait session Part 2

In a previous post I included some tips for what to wear to a portrait session. Here are some more tips to help you be prepared (Part 1 of ‘What to wear’ tips can be found here): Choose long pants for men/ladies or a skirt below the knee for ladies so that your legs don’t take…
