Family photographs

Since we became a little family, eight months ago, I have changed how I view family photographs. Before, I would have enjoyed photographing a family in a pretty scenic environment somewhere, not in their same old, day in, day out home! However now, I can’t think of anywhere more beautiful to document a family than in the comfortable, familiar space where life happens everyday. I treasure the routine we have every day and the comfort of my home and what it represents- our mornings together playing on the bed before work starts, Gracie standing at the window looking at the trees and birds, the wooden floor we pay games on, our dinner table where we eat and talk and the messy highchair we clean daily (or three times daily.) The familiar has become so beautiful to me as it holds many reminders of lovely, messy family life. I can’t think of anywhere else I would rather have my family documented. Meet Gracie girl, the absolute delight of our hearts.

The wedding of Tim and Chelsea

Towards the end of last year I had the privilege of photographing the wonderfully creative wedding of Tim and Chelsea Weyer. I have just been to busy to post everything on my website, but I hope to have this wedding up in a few days!! You must see the amazing decor and different creative elements of this wedding!

The Herald Boardwalk Bridal Fair 2015

This year I decided to take part in the Herald Boardwalk Bridal Fair in June. I bought a stand at the last minute and had about two weeks to plan everything! It was crazy! And it was also the same week we decided to foster a little girl and found out we would be getting her in two weeks! Hahah! Anyway I really enjoyed planning and creating my stand- wanting to create an experience of my photography as you viewed my stall. I wanted large prints and fresh flowers and little personal touches that are characteristic of my style. We stamped, printed, spray painted and arranged flowers for hours, but I was really happy with the final result. I would never have been able to do it without the help of my family- wow! They were SUCH a help! The Bridal Fair itself was busy and fun- I ate loads of my own free sweets, printed about 1000 to many business cards and ended up with loads of really massive wedding prints (if only they were of my own wedding;) But overall it was a great experience where I met so many wonderful brides and networked with lots of great service providers.
