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!

Moments that mean the world.

Moments that mean the world.

It’s in the Centre of Victorian Countryside with it’s frosty mornings and clean crisp air that’s a far stretch from the Sunshine Coast weather that I am used to. However the saying goes home is where the heart is. You see I have my little family here in the Sunshine Coast which is definitely where my main love, heart and soul lives. However having family over 2000kms away makes that place also feel like home.

In June I went on my annual holiday to Victoria to see my family, little did I know this was one of the last times I would spend with my beloved Pa my grandfather. Who was more than a grandfather he was my father when there was no other there for me. We were mates, best of mates. You know those rare people you just understand, you don’t even need to talk just being there and you get each other! Well he was definitely one of those to me and I know I was the same to him.

A story that goes around my family of when I was five years old, living in a Milk Bar my grandparents owned I used to get an ice-cream everyday well almost… It was a cornetto/drumstick! The very best, perks of living in your own Milk Bar. Anyway I went to ask my mother for an Ice-Cream – She said no. I went to my Nan – she said what did your mother say? Well no then. And lastly, crying off I went to Pa. As he scooped me up in his arms what’s the matter darling, I want an ICE CREAM! Which one lets go pick one out! This was us it was me and you against the world. Its actually 4 weeks to the day today that my world came to halt and I had that phone call that you’re no longer in your physical body. My spirits okay but my humaness has it’s moments where I can’t cope. We were so lucky to have been able to spend a few days with you. Fun family time, I know you enjoyed this day as much as everyone else. This ones for you Robin, my hero who now has wings!

Here is one of the very first photos I took, and below is the last photo of you and it happened to have me in it with you! A memory I will cherish forever. Until we meet again my friend.

Moments that last a lifetime.

So now to cheer us all up here are the residence of my Aunty’s farm the Goats! Some great personalities these girls have!

Big MUMMA!

Don’t take for granted those around you, you might not have as long as you think you do with them! Much love to you!

Hand drawn beauties!!

Here is a photography post for my beautiful long time friend Megan and her gorgeous little family. Megan and I first met in grade 3 at primary school, and it was almost ‘love’ at first sight not long after we did so much together from climbing trees to running amok at her parents farm in country Victoria. Photography Brisbane

At the end of primary school my family moved to Queensland and I hadn’t seen or heard from Megan for almost 8 years good ‘ol Facebook brought us back together and then not long after that Megan flew to see me especially for my 21st birthday! It was such a rush seeing her again and we took off from where we left off almost like a moment wasn’t missed in between friendships like this are rare and I’m very lucky to have a couple of these. Not long after my birthday Megan met this guy Tony who I heard all about and unbelievably  he was also from Gladstone, soon after that she’d moved there too and our friendship was able to grow more being able to share pregnancies together! Who would have thought after 8 years of separation and then to have her move to the same town again two states away! I’m now living in Brisbane but I really know that distance is no barrier for a friendship full of love and fun times!

Here’s to more of them, I can’t wait to meet this next little bubba blue on his way, I’m sure he will be as cute as his brothers! <3 x
