The Van Balen Family

I love going to a new property and having the challenge of seeing what I can work with to get the best possible photographs. When I drove up to the Van Balen household I was pretty chuffed at what I saw, not just the setting but the number and variety of animals on the property. This place was an animal lovers haven! there were emus and sheep and

Natasha, Cameron and little Liam

There’s a little added pressure that comes with mini shoots in getting great shots in a short time but this glorious afternoon we couldn’t put a foot wrong. Natasha and her family had come from Willow Tree for this mini shoot and the light on this particular afternoon was absolutely glorious. Little Liam was such a character during the

The Callaghan Family Shoot

This shoot was actually done straight after the Hodge family shoot and funnily enough these guys knew each other. It never ceases to amaze me the links that people have in this area, I’ve had many its a small world kind of moments and this was certainly one of them. Kelly, Clarry and little Darcy had been given this shoot as a gift by the

The Hodge Family Shoot

It was perfect conditions photography wise when Alison Hodge and her lovely family had organised to do their mini shoot out at one of my favourite places. The light was lovely and luminous and I found myself looking for a new scene to get my family portraits. When we arrived I noticed the beautiful golden leaves still hanging onto their branches,

Bec, Johnny and their beloved hound Henry

I was so excited when Bec approached me to do a mini shoot involving their much loved dog Henry. The day we arranged to do this shoot the weather was a concern because it had been overcast and showering on and off. Bec was a trooper though and wasn’t going to let a bit of rain dampen our shoot. Bec is also a photographer as well and said she

The Bailey’s and their grandchildren

Hello all, During the Christmas period last year I put a deal up on social media for mini shoots for the new year. To my delight many Scone locals took up the offer. What was even more wonderful was that many of my past clients got their family members onto this deal to have more family memories captured. The first shoot of the year was with

The Chapple Family Mini Shoot

Hello folks, I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas and have had some lovely relaxing days to recover….it would be nice if the temperature was a little kinder here in Scone but anyway we can’t have it all can we? Here is the shoot of another fellow colleague Tanya Chapple. Tanya teaches Japanese and I can tell you I’ve taken a

The Brown Family

Absolute perfection! that is what you get when you get a gorgeous afternoon at the creek with that beautiful golden hour colour and a family that has no worries being in front of the camera. This is the Brown family. Danielle had contacted me for a shoot earlier in the year but hadn’t gotten around to organising a time. When I told her about

The Birch Family Washpools shoot

The Washpools here in my hometown of Scone is really lovely at the moment. Kelly Birch and her family were very kind in taking up my last minute offer to shoot one November afternoon. She said the family had never been there before so the kids were excited to explore. They thought that having a dip in those pools would be marvelous even though

The Woodley Family

Spring has well and truly hit the Upper Hunter, the landscape here is beautiful at the moment due to the repeat visits of rain we have had over the last few months. Everything looks like a picture postcard, the grass is green, bees are buzzing around, the wildlife is celebrating the warmth. Its like being in a scene from Bambi!……..ok

The Carrigan’s Country Shoot

So in the last post I mentioned how I appreciate my repeat clients, well I’ll go one step further and say I love it when those clients get their family one of my gift vouchers as a gift. So Sarah your an absolute legend in my book! So not long after the Pete and Sarah Carrigan shoot I was contacted by the recipient of Sarah’s gift

The Carrigan Family Shoot

I love my repeat clients!! its great to catch up and hear about where life has taken them and its also great to see how much their little ones have grown too. I first met the Carrigans when I was asked to take some photos of Eadie before her Christening last year, she was only 10 weeks old then. When I caught up with them for their second shoot
