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…

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…

Elsie and the sunset

This is what happens when the plan comes together and nature co-operates. Some pet sessions can only be done during the day, when the sun is high and bright, but when a session comes along and I can plan it for late afternoon it is so worth it. Even the cool winter air (which I…

Sometimes waiting can be so hard

I’ve wanted to share these photos of gorgeous Elsie for a month, and I can finally share them! This little beauty was a dream. When I met with her human mum to plan her photo session Elsie was happy to say hello for a while and then have a sleep while I talked with her…

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…

Puppies galore!

Seven babies at once is enough to make any human mother weary, but this proud border collie mum had no trouble keeping an eye on her puppies, especially with human children around to adore, pat, and cuddle them! After rounding them up and trying to get some photos of them running around and playing with…

Another foggy morning in the Riverland

Foggy winter mornings make for interesting scenery. The sunlight catching the droplets of dew on the blanket of spider webs makes them shimmer and shine, but their inhabitants are surprisingly hard to find (I think that’s a good thing!). Peace and calm….ahhh, the serenity.
