Instagram and Us

I have been busy wrapping up the year and having a fabulous time on Instagram this past few weeks. Best.app.evahhh!

Sometimes the best camera is the one you have with you and inspired by Tara Whitney, with whom we had a fab family shoot last year in California (wow, I was only 18wks pregnant in those pics) and I have started a personal tumblr site to remember my ‘little things’ like school milkshakes, walks in Centennial Park, photos with Santa, Sydney City Christmas Lights, Bondi Beach, santa lists and some school holiday fun like baths in the morning and late nights…

You may have even seen them already on my twitter if you follow me there.

Hope you are enjoying the pre-xmas excitement!

 

Sea Farm Copacobana Wedding: Zoe+Chris

The day started with Zoe being a little nervous, but as the weather warmed up with beautiful blue skies, there was plenty of time to relax and get ready in the little cabin on the hill next to the main residence. Sea Farm Cocapabana is luxurious Central Coast accommodation and has views all the way to the beach and is totally secluded. Zoe was just the picture of elegance in her fabulous designer gown and the day went exactly as planned. I hope you enjoy this rather long sneak peek just before you leave on your honeymoon!

Venue: Sea Farm Cocapabana
Celebrant: Sonia Hartman
The Artist of Hair: Jessica Andreoli

The Next Great Gatsby

I have known H and B for years and have watched him grow up from a far. These two have a very unique bond and couldn’t wait to get them in front of the camera. I am really enjoying capturing kids around this age too. Its a stage often overlooked for professional portraits as perhaps some teeth are missing or they feel self conscious in front of a camera or only want to make silly faces. I have two boys around the same age so I know what it can be like! So we played lots of games even had a cross eyed competition;)

Its an in between time where they are not little kids but not yet teenagers. You can’t call them ‘cute’ anymore, that just won’t cut it. They are more interested in being a little bit cool and a big bit silly! However, when we were chatting about his mum and how much he loved her, the innocent child came straight back out in full view and he was gushing! She scored a 20 out of 10 even before our session had started! And still by the end of it all, he was leaping off sand dunes and letting loose that energy that only kids have.

Oh and keep an eye on this gorgeous kid too, he has scored a small role in The Great Gatsby alongside Leonardo DiCaprio. He is sporting a true 1920′s haircut styled by Baz Luhrman’s hair and make up team – can’t get cooler than that!
