Winter Wonderland

Winter is a lovely time of year in Brisbane, Australia, as long as you don’t have to get out of bed too early in the morning that is.  (Winters in Townsville and North QLD are much nicer but lets not get hung up in my pining for the warm tropics).  Winter afternoons have the most gorgeous glow to them and as that sun sinks down below the horizon and the warmth of the day sinks with it, it makes for a beautiful time to photograph. One of my favourite places to photograph is especially gorgeous in winter when the wetlands have dried up and the long dry grass stretches out in the sunshine.

I was very lucky that a little store in Brighton, Jolie offered to lend us some gorgeous clothing and accessories for this concept shoot. (They also have a shop in Wavell Heights or shop online – just a little plug 🙂

My model Georgia did an amazing job at both bringing these beautiful clothes and the concept to life.  I hope you enjoy our little snapshot of an Aussie Winter wonderland

 


Down by the river

My homework assignment this week inspired me to attempt something I have always wanted to try and my gorgeous model Katie brought the whole scene to life.  After some scouting around I finally found the right location at Cedar Creek in Samford.  Katie answered a model call-out on our Facebook page and travelled all the way from Toowoomba and even with some trouble finding the place she was an absolute delight to work with! Thank you for your generous donation of time Katie and I hope you enjoy your photos.

 


Woodland Fairy Hunt

Do you remember the simple joys of childhood?  Of running and playing with your friends? What about believing in magic and fairies and everything amazing in the world.









Chasing the light

_MCD4384-2

During my enforced break from professional photography I am undertaking a 6 month mentoring course with Ainslie from Wild Spirit Photography on the Gold Coast. This weeks assignment was to capture some beautiful light. These are a few of my images and thanks so much to my lovely models.


An afternoons wandering

What a beautiful day today was!  Clear blue skies, warm sun and two kids with plenty of energy.  I am always on the look out for new locations to take my clients  to and capture some stunning images.  The other day I spotted another little walking track I hadn’t seen before and I finally had some time to check it out today.

We packed ourselves a little snack, a hat and the camera and set off to find some gorgeous light and nice locations to capture some memories.  Unfortunately my kids are maybe a little sick of having their photo taken

There were lots of laughs to be had and we found a new place to go exploring – plenty more paths to tackle next time as well!  Hoping to find the little lagoon that is hidden down there somewhere.

A lovely afternoon for a picnic

My daughter is in year 1 and this term they are learning all about animals and their habitats.  We often go for ‘bush walks’ I suppose you could call them – we prefer the term, ‘Adventures’.  One of our favourite places to adventure in is the wetlands near our house.  And after a busy morning of ballet practice and soccer games Miss 6 asked me if we could go Kangaroo spotting today so she could gather some research and get some photos for her teachers.

We have found a number of mobs of kangaroos and wallabies in Tichi Tamba before but these aren’t tamed marsupials that will welcome you into their habitat.  These are wild kangaroos and very timid.  In particular the big males are not fond of people coming close especially when their are young ones around.

So we set off just before dusk to hopefully spot some kangaroos and I took along the camera as it is one of my favourite places to get some beautiful family shots in the wide open spaces in the lovely soft afternoon light.  My eldest brought a book, of course and Miss 6 was taking notes and making diagrams.  I only managed to capture one dodgy shot of a little wallaby family (I think) – no tripod and failing light and very shy animals. I’m sure we will be heading back soon – perhaps next time 🙂
