Winter Mini Session Special [Canberra Family Photographer]

Winter Mini Session Special [Canberra Family Photographer]
  The time has come.  Every year, just once a year, I offer a Mini Session Special.    Autumn was so very heavily booked, I have decided to embrace Winter Mini Sessions, and I hope that you will embrace them too. Winter light is sublime.  Pull out the knitted beanies, gloves and jumpers.  Let's make a bonfire or head out to Tidbinbilla.   Let's go out and e[...]

It’s been a while [Canberra Family Photographer]

It's been a while [Canberra Family Photographer]
It has been a while between blog posts. It's time to change that. One thing that I have realised about myself, is that I am clearly not the greatest of multi-taskers, and when I throw myself into something, I let other things slip by the wayside a little. Blogging has been one of those little things I let slip though. My winter has been somewhat consumed by updatin[...]

Christmas Cut off Times [Canberra Family Photos]

Christmas Cut off Times [Canberra Family Photos]
I am finding it very hard to believe that I am talking Christmas already. It's a scary thing. The lead up to Christmas is a crazy time for me, and I go out of my way to ensure that all of my client's recieve their products before Christmas. Sometimes I feel like Santa Claus :-). It is important for me to let you know that my suppliers have cut off times, and I need[...]

Photographing Teenagers [Canberra Family Photographer]

Photographing Teenagers [Canberra Family Photographer]
The question that I am asked over and over again, is "how do you photograph teenagers?". Photographers struggle and are often scared to photograph this age group, and parents just give up, because let's face it, they can take their own "selfies" better. This age group is without doubt, my most favourite age group to photograph. This might well be that I have tee[...]

Mentoring Sessions [Canberra Family Photos]
Below is one image of a beautiful girl, from a Mentoring session that I did last Sunday. One of the questions that I am most often asked, is "Do you run Workshops?"  The answer is No.  BUT, I have just started to take a few mentoring sessions. My story is no different from so many budding new comers to this crazy industry.  The allure of working from home, whils[...]

Family [Canberra Portrait Photographer]

Family [Canberra Portrait Photographer]
As my children have grown, and move through the different stages of their childhood, I have learned first hand how to photograph their age group. Now that I have teenagers of my own, I can honestly say that I LOVE love love photographing this age group, because I know that they are still so young at heart, and so full of vibrant energy.  They are just waiting for per[...]

Happy Birthday Ruby [Canberra Portrait Photographer]

Happy Birthday Ruby [Canberra Portrait Photographer]
Last Saturday the 7th of December, we celebrated Ruby's 15th birthday. 15 years ago, I held this beautiful baby girl in my arms, and dreamed of the young lady she would grow into. 15 years ago, I never imagined that I would ever ever be the mother of a teenager (let alone 2, and eventually 3). 15 years seemed like an eternity, but here I am, thinking how on earth [...]
