I still do….

On Saturday the 24th of May I was blessed to be able to share a very special day with an amazing couple.  To celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary they renewed their vows surrounded by family and friends in the stunning grounds of The Laurals, Warwick, Queensland.

There were so many touching moments between this family. A gorgeous handwritten note by their daughter…

The ceremony took place as the winter sun was stinking down towards the horizon.  It was a beautiful family affair as the kids casually moved in and out and the couple recited their “thank you’s” to each other, as they acknowledged all those unique things that make married life the special adventure that it is.

Afterwards the three girls performed a song and dance to “Love is an Open Door” from the their favourite movie – Frozen which was absolutely delightful.

The beautiful Naked Cake was constructed by Story Book Cakes in Warwick

Thank you to all my clients

Welcome to 2014! I just wanted to take this time to thank all of my followers and clients who have supported me in this new photography venture as I move out of the realm of enthusiast to professional.  Although I am not taking new clients at the moment this year is going to be exciting.  I am undertaking a mentorship with a prominent Brisbane photographer and I am looking forward to learning and growing my photographic skills in the new year.

I hope you enjoy this video of my clients from 2013.


Relay for Life

It was an early start for my family this morning.  We met at the Redcliffe Jetty at 5am with trestle tables, boxes of homebaked goodies and lots of enthusiasm.  We set up before the sun rose and had time to stop and watch this gorgeous sunrise.

Today was the morning of our annual bake stall for our Relay for Life team. Each year we participate in the Redcliffe Relay For Life, to raise money and fight back against cancer; a 16 hour relay to demonstrate our support for suffers and carers of this dreaded disease.  But before we get to the relay we fundraise.  And so begins the giant bakefest that precedes the McNutty Clan’s great Bake Stall

Just a small example of what part of my kitchen table looked like Saturday afternoon at 6pm

We were completely overwhelmed with the generosity of people who baked, bought and just helped out in the lead up to our bake stall.  Without these people we would not be able to raise the amount of money we do to give to the Cancer Council.

And after a beautiful day in the sunshine selling cookies, fudge, and cake pops; after selling literally hundreds of raffle tickets, chatting to so many generous people who were so willing to donate to such a worthy cause we managed to raise $942.  This money goes towards funding clinical trials, research as well as patient care and staffing a support line.

So the question I want to leave you with is…

Who will you relay for

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.
