Feedback is so very important to me and my business, so to hear from my past Bride and Grooms that they are so happy with their final, Quality Product, Quality Service and (me) their photographer on their wedding day, leaves me all warm and fuzzy. Thank you x
Leana + Kinaz have a beautiful love story that started when they met as young teenagers and blossomed when they were young adults. Both coming from Syria meant that they would always have two weddings so they could celebrate with all of their friends and family. Their main wedding was held in Syria where hundreds of friends, relatives and family celebrated the young couples love. Their second wedding was held at the Stamford Plaza here in Brisbane and I was lucky enough to be involved in it. A gorgeous afternoon with the couples nearest and dearest celebrating in the heart of our gorgeous city.
They arrived! All of my gorgeous wedding albums for clients are here! Eeeeep I am so excited, I don't know how I will part with them all.
And then there were three... At home, Lifestyle Family portrait session.
These guys were two cute!! All smiles and cuddles. Take me back!
We don't like photos' they said.. What are we supposed to do in front of the camera they said.. Then these guys absolutely rocked the session!
The 4074 and surrounding suburbs, proudly held its second Community Fun Day, last Sunday the 1st of May, thanks again to Lisa Baillie and her hardworking team! Even though the rain was determined to set in & drizzle for the majority of the day, it didn't stop our community from turning up in their wellingtons & rain coats, and support our local, talented & hard working vendors, who raised funds to support two wonderful local organisations, Project: Love & Care and Mount Ommaney Special School. What a turn out! I couldn't be more proud to be part of such a vibrant, warm and engaging neighbourhood, who crowded into the market stalls to check out everything that was on offer. Some of the highlights from the day would have to be Just Poppy's hamburger eating competition... Whoa!? Those burgers were huge!! Even bigger was the crowd that got in nice and close to watch the contestants try & eat their way to be number one! Although it was touch and go, there was one clear winner who took the trophy home. Next up was the Cake bake competition sponsored by Cakes Around Town. The detail and effort that went into these cakes was evident, with everyone lining up to sample a taste, after all the winners had been announced! Lisa Terare and her Remax Innovations crew, put on a great show with toddlers of all ages bopping to their tunes, and Kiwanis Club Brisbane kept everyone well fed. There really was something for everyone! I am still editing and sorting through the images of the day, but here is a taster below of some of the highlights!

Our first collaboration!
I am excited to share with you images from our first styled wedding shoot. Thanks to Nadine from Nadine Kelly Makeup Artist for her fabulous makeovers, you were absolutely wonderful, Christine from Brisbane FRESH Flowers for the beautiful flowers Tadesigns Videos for filming the occasion and to our wonderful models Brittany and Scott, who followed me up and down our local countryside to get these images.
“There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative. Oop! The Moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever.”
- Henri Cartier-Bresson
hanging out with my nieces x
It's school holidays over at our house still, which means checking out #Goma and #QLDmuseum for kids activities!
This picture of Ebony was taken while we were waiting for both to open. Now normally I love editing an image to see how dreamy or dramatic I can make it, push my boundaries in the post editing phase... This image was different. I love how classic it looks, how creamy the tones are and most of all how comfortable Ebby was in front of the camera. I also love how she was holding her dolly for the camera too

I was lucky enough to visit my sister (1 of 3) in Adelaide on the weekend, and spend some time with her on her b'day. What an amazing woman she is. Courageous, loving, kind, fierce, sharp, funny, wise and independent (to name a few) she is incredible. True to me... I managed to squeeze in a photo shoot :O)
