Below are some of my favourites from our time together.
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.

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).
This is Jodi's family. We met at the beach at Redcliffe and took some photos of them along the foreshore. Little Mya was so cute in her little dress and had a lot of fun playing in the sand and watching the world around her. I can't wait to photograph Mya again for her cake smash when she turns 1!
These are some of my favourite photos from our get together.
Meet Haley. Haley is a nutritionist. She needed some photos for her new website and decided to contact me. Haley wanted photos that were fun yet professional, showing that healthy eating and drinking was not only good for you, but can also be very yummy!
We met up at New Farm Park and took some photos amongst the beautiful Jacaranda trees that are in full bloom at the moment. Below are some of my favourite photos from our shoot together.
We started our family photo shoot at Preeya's house so we could get some photos of the family with their cute little dog. We then drove out to Fort Lytton for the second location as Preeya wanted her photos to have old, rundown buildings in the background and it seemed like the perfect location. We got some shots of the boys posing like models in front of the old ruins and some of mum and dad cuddling up together, as well some black and white photos of the whole family inside some of the buildings.
Preeya and her family were very easy to photograph despite them saying that they were a bit nervous to begin with. They soon relaxed and we got some great shots of everyone.
I recently shot a wedding down at O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat and afterwards I thought I'd try my hand at photographing the Milky Way while I was there. Below are some of the photos that I took on the night. I will be uploading these and some others onto my landscape photography website for purchase soon.
As Melitta and Adam will be having their wedding ceremony at Jabiru Island, Gold Coast and wanted to see what their photos would look like in a similar boardwalk setting, I met them at the Eagleby Wetlands for their engagement shoot to capture some examples of they can expect for their wedding photography. We walked along the boardwalk and I managed to capture the love that they share for each other.
Since we did the photo shoot, Melitta has printed out the photos and displayed her favourites in frames. It brings a smile to my face hearing that people love the photos that I have taken of them. I look forward to their wedding next year.
I recently had the pleasure of attending Casey and Joel's wedding as their photographer. I took photos as the groom nervously awaited his beautiful bride, then captured their ceremony in front of a gazebo in a lovely garden setting. We then took advantage of the gardens at Lloyds Restaurant and Function Centre. The bride and groom then zoomed off to the next location, where I met them and created some happy snaps with the bridal party. We finished the shoot with the bride and groom in each other's arms before they headed back to the reception where we parted ways so they could enjoy the rest of their evening alone together.
Casey and Ollie were a pleasure to photograph, as the chemistry between them was amazing! They were a very easy going couple who suggested positions and poses of their own, and were happy to do just about anything to get a great photograph. They were both naturals in front of the camera, which made them very easy to photograph.
We started out in the park at The Spit on the Gold Coast, and ended up in the water underneath the jetty there. They weren't afraid of getting their feet (as well as other parts of them) wet, and both actually ended up getting quite drenched in the end, but they didn't mind one bit. All in the name of fun. Ollie even took it upon himself to have a bit of a swim, clothes and all, while I was photographing Casey by herself, and he came back ready to shoot again, in his see-through white shirt and long wet hair. Watching Casey's face light up when she saw this was an absolute delight. Just watching them in the water together, being so romantic towards each other made me miss my younger days when I was almost as carefree as they were.
I couldn't wait to get home and start editing all the photos straight away. I am very happy with the results and would shoot with either one of them again in a heartbeat. Thank you for being part of this shoot with me and I hope you both had fun doing so.
