A few months back before Christmas we did a soulful essence photography session for local Sunshine Coast Yoga Expert Emily Spurling, she is a game changer in her industry having a long list of skills under her belt. She runs world wide retreats and partners with many well known wellness programs, companies and tv subscriptions.
Here is a snippet of the of the photography session and the amazing photos we captured infused with the divine energy that moved through the session. I honestly had so much fun capturing her in her element and allowing her space to shine. It’s such an honour to be able to work with all the incredible women that I work with. ❤️💜💛
Emily Spurling of Karma Being is a Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher and Certified Holistic Health Coach who facilitates health and yoga retreats around the World. Recognised as an expert in her field, Emily has garnered much acclaim from her viewership on www.fmtv.com where she appears alongside other industry leaders including Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer and Dr Bruce Lipton to name a few.
With a decade of teaching experience under her belt Emily is also an eternal student of yoga globally with formal training in Hatha and Vinyasa flow. She has beautifully combined these styles to create her own much loved yoga experience. This ‘fusion’ style is the perfect blend of light and shade, one flow will have you generating heat and building lean muscle and in the next you will be blissing out in a slow, opening restorative sequence. Recently she has birthed her own take on the merging of Yoga and High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) for Yogis who want to take their fitness and physique to the next level. Emily’s style continues to evolve in unison with the ever changing landscape of her life. “Yoga has soothed my body after days snowboarding and surfing, nurtured me through the late stages of pregnancy and early days of motherhood and most recently helped me to be stronger than ever both physically and mentally.”
Emily is drawn to yoga and meditation as a way to become fully present and ‘show up’ as the best version of herself in all areas of life. “We are all expected to wear so many different ‘hats’ every day, as a mother of two beautiful children, a wife, entrepreneur and teacher, to name a few, it can be really confusing and challenging to stay grounded, positive and on my path. If we are not living in the moment then we’re not showing up, Yoga and meditation are my secret weapon and it is my pleasure to share this gift with you.”

This is Tori, a few months ago I got the opportunity to capture Tori’s beautiful essence at the Northern Beaches of Sydney. It took a little while for Tori to open up and relax in front of my camera, even though she is a pro in front of the Video camera she was self confessed at clamming up for still shots. We soon got chatting and the connection between us deepened. I had known Tori for around a year before the shoot but only through Facebook as we had connected previously through group chats and becoming ‘friends’ on Facebook. It’s so nice when you can finally connect with like minded women in the flesh!
After showing Tori a few moves for the camera and relaxing her through my terrible mum jokes, she started to shine! She started to have fun and relax into the space of joy and happiness and really allowed her truth to shine through.
Tori teaches female entrepreneurs how to grow their business through the use of video. Video is the strongest medium for engagement, traction and reach. It allows you to connect with heart & convert with ease. It is both an opportunity and essential skill in online business, whatever your stage.
Do you procrastinate around filming or do you ‘shoot n hope’? Sadly, neither convert your view time to clients. Grab my free guide to guide you through YOUR best next step with filming biz videos.
She believes that sound strategy and genuine client connection does more for your camera confidence than good hair. The purpose of video is NOT know, like, trust. If you think it is (as many ‘video gurus’ teach!), grab Tori’s free guide HERE for another perspective that will make hitting record WORTH IT.
In a day as a graphic designer and photographer, I work with many different file types from JPGs to Illustrator files. Because I spend most of my days engrossed in a world of graphics, drawings, photos and different applications, I often forget that all of these different types of file formats can be quite overwhelming and confusing for some of my clients who have little to no computer skills or experience.
Unless you are a graphic designer, chances are you’ve never needed to understand things like what the difference between a TIF from a PDF or a PSD is. While the large variety of file formats may seem overwhelming, there is a method to the many forms! Here is a link download the sheet where it explains it all for you!

I have such a wonderful life, so blessed being able to capture my dear friend and yes I say friend as Mitlé Southey had been an acquaintance, then a client and now a friend and it seems I’m even luckier as most of my dear clients have become my close friends and some even start to feel like family.
This is a photography session I captured back in September, I really strive to capture my clients in their soulful essence and I feel this was just how it was for Mitlé Southey thank you for letting me capture you in your inner light and essence. These photos were taken on Coolum Beach on the Sunshine Coast. \\
I also transformed Mitlé’s website from one of lacking direction and flow and we added graphics onto the images to create a brand and ease that ooses her personality and vibe. I can’t wait to show you what we have created, it will be released very soon.
I just love the way the sun kisses the sand and the mirror that the ocean creates all these synchronicities create the perfect environment for a photography session!
Here are some slides we created for the website… sneak peek!
