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.

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]
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 [...]

Times Three [Canberra Family Photographer]
Photographing this beautiful family felt just so familiar for me. It felt like such a flash back to when my three were this age. The energy, the craziness, the laughter and the tears. I miss it all so much. Such fun times were spent enjoying the beautiful Spring warmth.

Truth be known, I could have just kept on photographing this little pumpkin for ever. So perfect, and so very loved. What a lucky baby girl. Most regular Digital Photography School readers are aware that a month ago I became a Dad. Our new son’s name is Xavier (you’ll get to know him over the course of this tutorial). I’ve previously written about the topic of p[...]

After the excitement that has been the last couple of weeks for me, it is just so wonderful to just settle back into doing what I love the most, and that is spending time with beautiful families, and capturing snippets of their life. The fun, the love and the connection.

There seems to be no rhyme nor reason to how illness strikes - It is beyond my comprehension.   All this beautiful family wanted was the love to show in their eyes.

I love photographing families.   Editing these images just makes me smile.  Looking at their beautiful faces, knowing all of the hopes and dreams their Mum and Dad have for them.   I can almost hear the giggles as I edit, it makes me grin from ear to ear.  I guess this is what being a family photographer is all about isn't it.
