Jess and ShaneSouth Coast Maternity Sessionsouth coast maternity

Jess and I met on the first day of year 7 at Loreto Kirribilli where we went to school. We sat next to each other as homeroom buddies, so to document this milestone for her and her love Shane was incredible. I drove to the South Coast and they showed me one of their favourite spots where Shane grew up. I noticed Jess had some ink on the back of her arm, and when I asked her what it meant she said ‘us’ in Italian. So here’s to celebrating the us that is you and Shane, and the baby growing inside you.

Italian Village Circular QuayHolly and Luke say I Do

I’ve always found it a privilege to be welcomed into someone’s wedding to document the day unfold. It’s also an inspiration, both work-wise and on a personal level to observe and witness the bubbling anticipation, vulnerability, joy and all-round fun that comes with a wedding day that’s been planned and designed by the couple for their loved friends and family. Like observing the calm sea from afar, as you get closer you see all the textures and beauty and where the light hits, and how it comes together to create that beautiful energy that keeps you coming back. So I love every wedding I shoot, and witnessing the day unravel and both the carefully curated and spontaneous magical moments that come with it. This is Holly and Luke’s story; two beautiful people who met and fell in love in the northern beaches and a few weeks ago said I Do on a sunny Sydney day.

Ubud Engagement Session

I absolutely loved exploring a little village in Ubud with Kate and Gaurav before ending the loved up session at Tegalalang Rice Terrace.
This session is a little snippet of the wild, adventerous and heart-opening life they’ve created through offering yoga teacher trainings and retreats all over the world. I was also lucky enough to be part of the intimate group of yogis who experienced their knowledge and wisdom on all things yoga and pranayama; and it had a profound effect on my spirit.
If you’re interested in furthering your yoga or looking for a getaway to recharge, you can see more of what they’re about here.
But for now, check out these twin flames in the lush grounds of Ubud.Ashtak Yoga_001

Rhys

It’s so exciting to have my new website up after working on it for many months now. And to top it off, I am blogging a session with one of the first clients I had the pleasure of documenting. You can see the first session here. It really fills me up not just seeing how much my Breathing Light babies have grown, but also their blossoming personalities.

I came back to photograph the latest member to the family, Rhys. With his big procupine hair,  brown eyes and adoring family, it all came together to create a sweet session celebrating this beautiful family.

First, a comparison of Mia and her rabbit from our 2013 session and now :)

Edie & LiamSydney Fairground Follies

It’s not often I begin a blog with one of the last photos of the night, but I am so giddy to share this one with you so here it is. Plus, it is pretty revealing of the fun and kooky day where Edie and Liam said I Do.

Edie and I went to school together so it was incredible to photograph such an intimate day of someone I’ve shared history with. She was my first homeroom buddy, and one of my first memories I have with Edie is her letting me copy her book the first week of school when I hadn’t gotten my glasses yet.
Fast forward 15 years and I am photographing her and Liam on one of the most special days of their lives. The day was perfect, the groomsmen and bridesmaids were full of personality, the guests were fun and the venue was a photographer’s dream. But most of all, Edie and Liam have found home in each other and that in itself was the biggest joy to document. Here is the story of their day in my eyes.

And also, you can see the photos from their engagement session here, full of puppies and water. A perfect start to the week!

A bit of Henry and WonderMaternity, Birth and Newborn Session

Today’s featured family are incredibly special to me. I met Natalie at the beginning of my Breathing Light journey, around the time she started her beautiful bespoke jewellery line.
When she contacted me to document the birth of her baby it was incredibly heart-warming to think I would be sharing the experience with her and Dan.

There are some images from their maternity session just weeks before they met Henry in the flesh. Documenting the progression from anticipation, to the strength of birth itself, to the comfort of home there is an authentic display of ‘soaking things in’. There was a sense of slowing down, of wonder and an abundance of tenderness. It is an affirmation for me to live with intention and curiosity.

I’m starting the images off with one of the last photos from our maternity session, with the last of the day’s rays kissing Natalie and the trees cocooning her and Henry.

And 11 days later…

Alaina and Ryan say ‘I Do’

A few teasers from Alaina and Ryan’s beautiful day in Mudgee. She arrived by a horse-drawn carriage to the Church and the vows were exchanged among family and friends. We then ventured out and Alaina and Ryan had some time alone bathed in the sunshine and their post-wedding bliss. It was beautiful to document and the reception at Blue Wren (props to all of Alaina’s hard work!) provided a stunning atmosphere for all their guests; and as always, Mudgee provided another remarkable sunset.
