Family Photography

When booking a family photography session I love hearing that they want to be captured having fun!

The Burns family turned up prepared with bubbles and a ball – however miss Violet did not want to join in. We tried as hard a we could to change her mood around, but we did not succeed. She just wasn’t feeling the best. We had to reschedule!

Looking at these photos you wouldn’t know that this had been the case, and in half the photos you wouldn’t have even realised that Krysta was pregnant! We had so much fun running around Cook Park in Orange. Sadly the poppy’s were not there the second time.

Spring is coming around the corner so if you are looking to have your family photos done it is best to contact me now to schedule in your session.

Thank you Krysta and Peter for letting me photograph your family!

Children | Orange Children’s Portrait Photographer


Children have the most amazing amazing imaginations and creativity, that we seem to loose as we become adults. And sometimes it just needs to be captured. Being a children’s portrait photographer is something that I absolutely love doing.  We forget how exciting our stories and child hood games are. The dress ups and imaginary play of being a princess, a fairy or even a super hero. The inquisitiveness that comes with a three year old in a new environment. How different the world look from their perspective! I was reminded of all this when I recently went to a workshop held by the super amazingly talented Barb Uil of Jinky Art. I spent two amazing days being mentored by Barb (which I had been dreaming of for years!) and we got some amazing photos as well. When I came back home to my children I paid more attention to the stories they were telling me and I felt the creativity flow through me again. Now my head goes into overdrive thinking of different photo shoots to do.

So if you would like to have a specially created themed portrait session let me know.And would love for you to come over and join my Facebook page! xx
