I was recently called to go to Jodi's house for Mya's 1st birthday cake smash photos. We sat the pink swirl butter cream cake on the floor and sat Mya behind it with her little party hat on. The hat didn't stay on for long, but it didn't take long for Mya's interest in the cake to pick up once she saw the pretty pink icing. Once she put her finger in it and tasted the icing, a big grin formed on her face and after a little coaxing from mum, her whole hand went in the cake and then into her mouth. We got a few more shots of Mya with her party hat on before she decided that she didn't like the feeling of cake all over her hands and mouth and started crying. The last shot was what was left of the cake after Mya attacked it. Happy 1st Birthday Mya!
It was Braden's 21st birthday and his mother Dawn wanted to do a family photo shoot before the night of the big party. So I went around to their Brisbane house and we wandered around all the lush trees and plants in their back yard and got some photos of the family around the pool area. Even the dogs joined in on the fun! Happy Birthday Braden! I hope the party was a huge success!
I was called back to Ashwani's house again to photograph their new baby Samyraa. We did the photo shoot at their house and these are some of the photos I took. Congratulations on your new addition to the family!
I recently had a photo shoot with Julie and Rob who contacted me about doing a photo shoot for their 2 1/2 month anniversary! :-) We went to the Spit at the Gold Coast and wandered through the park and along the beach. These two were so comfortable with each other that I thought they'd been together way longer than 2 1/2 months. Below are some of my favourite photos from our shoot.
Sometimes you just have to do something for yourself every now and then, and even though photography is my job, it's also still my hobby. Usually, I love taking photos of landscapes in my spare time, but lately, I've been branching out into food photography. I've been reading up on food styling and experimenting with angles and backgrounds. Here are some of my latest food photography shots:
Ashwani's wife is currently pregnant and they wanted some photos of their son and family before their next child was born, so he contacted me to arrange a family photo shoot at his home just before Christmas. We started out in their living room and then walked to the local park, which was just down the street, to get some more photos of the family altogether. I look forward to meeting your new little daughter soon Ashwani!
Today was the day of Renee's second family photo shoot at Shorncliffe. We met at the pier and walked along the foreshore battling the wind, stopping to take some photos of Renee and her family along the way.
We took a couple of the kids by themselves, as well as some of Renee and Mark together as well. Then headed up to the park at the top of the stairs, to blow some bubbles while Eamon watched with delight as Callum chased them in the wind.
A very fun photo shoot with a very lovely family. Below are some of my favourite photos from the day.
Renee recently contacted me regarding two photo shoots that she wanted me to shoot. The first one was on the day of her son's christening. Renee wanted photos of the whole family together afterwards, so we headed to a park in Aspley, (North side of Brisbane) and took a few group photos to capture the memories of the day.
We got a few shots of the adults by themselves, as well as some of the children separately too. Renee also wanted a couple of photos of Eamon by himself, in his cute little christening outfit.
Below are some of the photos from the first photo shoot after the christening. Stay tuned for photos of the second photo shoot, of just Renee and her little family, soon to come.
Candice wanted some recent photos of her family, to show the addition of her newest daughter Courtney. We met down at the Berrinba Wetlands for the photo shoot and wandered around the parklands stopping to take photos around the lake. We then went to the play equipment and got a few of the kids playing and one of mum and dad alone together, since they haven't had any photos of just themselves since they got married.
Below are some of my favourites from our time together.
Recently a client knock me back for a job because I didn't have any examples of food photography that I could show him. So today I had a bit of a play around with food photography while I was waiting for a new client to turn up for a product photography photo shoot for her website.
I've had an interest in food photography for a while now (as one day I would like to write, design, photograph and publish my own cook book), but I have never had the opportunity to experiment very much because of time constraints. So today I had all my lighting gear set up, and my client was running a bit late, so I thought - why not have a bit of a play around to see what I can achieve before she gets here? So I did. And this is what I came up with.
I can't wait to have another go at food photography again soon - after I have finished editing all the photos from my latest wedding, family shoot and product photography shoots that is. Stay tuned for some more fun food photography shots soon!
Please feel free to let me know if you prefer the artificial lighting (top photo) or the natural lighting (bottom).
