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 [...]
What a little adventure we had. The perfect weather forecast of 29 degrees, with 5% chance of rain turned into a storm that came over so quickly, that we barely made it to the car without getting completely saturated. But before the storm hit, I captured this gorgeous series of images for this incredibly beautiful family.
Spring has definately sprung here in Canberra. The warm days are upon us, the flowers are still blossoming, the grass is growing longer - it's just beautiful. If you have never had family portraits, this is the perfect time to do it. As for this beautiful family, this is their eldest daughter's last year in Primary School, so there are some exciting new adventure[...]
After a great night sleep last night, I have finally woken up to the reality of what has just happened to me over the weekend. This dream that I have been living over the last couple of days is REAL. It did happen. On Monday night, I was so incredibly honoured and humbled to receive 2013 AIPP Australian Family Photographer of the Year. So where to start. [...]
Since returning from our trip to Europe 1 month ago, I have been frantically trying to catch up with 6 weeks of being out the office, and planning for the busy months ahead. This beautiful photo-session was of course shot in Oslo, Norway. This crazy Norwegian family are very special to this crazy Canberra mob. It's been 5 years since they left our sunny shores, a[...]
If you read my blog, or follow my facebook or instagram feeds, you will no doubt know that I have just spent 6 glorious weeks holidaying in Europe with my family. This journey has been a long time in the planning. Too long in fact. But 2013 was the year to absolutely make it happen. Our eldest daughter Ruby is now in Year 9, and growing into a beautiful young an[...]
This may seem like old news, but for me, I have just returned from my adventures in Europe to see my feature in "The Canberra Times" (Canberra's Newspaper). Infact, it made the cover story of the "Relax" magazine, the Sunday supplement on July the 21st. I was interviewed for the story the week before I left to go to Europe, so I was aware that the story may go to [...]
Today I am the mother of two teenagers - gulp. My not so little boy turns 13 today. Take a deep breath Robyn.................... So here he is, ever so handsome (of course, that goes without saying), but also beautifully sensitive, thoughtful, empathetic, kind and super quick witted. It's just a wonderful thing to watch this slow motion movie unfold and to se[...]
