This beautuiful woman was so gorgeous to photograph inside and out and is one of the sweetest and kindest woman I've met.
Mikaela & India - my own daughters
I did a shoot a few weeks ago with my own beautiful little girls, Mikaela and India, who are 6 and 7. They are so used to having other people in my studio and were so delighted to be dressed up in gorgeous little dresses and having their portraits taken. I can't believe that these are my own gorgeous daughters and when did they get so big?
I spent such a fun afternoon in studio with this gorgeous woman. She first had her hair and make-up done by Tarryn and then she brought in a few different outfits. We spent most of our time in studio and then went out to a local green belt for a few shots outdoors. I cannot believe that Sue is going to be 60 next year. Sue is just beautiful all over and with the most gentle and lovely way about her.
I photographed Selma in studio where she had her hair and make-up done and brought in a few outfits. She has the most beautiful smile and soulful eyes.
Niccola contacted me at the end of last year to do a shoot for her to commemorate her 50th birthday. She has done photoshoots at the start of each decade of her life - what a wonderful idea. She didn't want any make-up done or any photoshop retouching as she wanted this shoot to be a true reflection of who she is at this age and who she has become. She brought in 3 simple outfits and a tiny purse of accessories and we spent a fun afternoon in my studio. I absolutely love photographing women over 40 - there is a certain confidence and self acceptance that seems to come with time that is so beautiful to capture. Niccola is completely comfortable in her own skin and just lovely to photograph.

Sue & Holly
Sue came into my studio a little bit earlier this year for a portrait shoot. She started off with having her hair and make-up done and then brought in some of her favourite dresses and outfits to get some different looks. Her gorgeous little daughter, Holly, joined in at the end of the session to get some beautiful mother and daughter images of the two of them.
I've done a few shoots for Rennette over the years with her beautiful boy, Finn but this time she contacted me to photograph her on her own as a celebration of herself and her journey for her 41st birthday. Rather than having hair and make-up done and being overly-photoshopped, she wanted a more natural and raw shoot with some darker and moodier elements and her true self showing. Thank you Rennette for letting me share your photos with the world.
