Kayla 's day out.

Thanks to Kayla and her Mum for coming by on Monday. We had a fun session with Kayla wearing a couple of different outfits and being all "supermodel" . We laughed a lot, did some silly stuff and captured some lovely images in the process. Thanks Kayla - you were great!

Congratulations Carolyne and Norm!

Carolyne and Norm's wedding was absolutely wonderful. I was delighted to be asked to photograph their big day and am very pleased to present this small selection of images.

Simple, elegance with crystal detailing, Carolyne's wedding dress suited her perfectly.


Thanks to both Carolyne and Norm for allowing me the pleasure of being a part of your day. The entire Bridal Party were a fun and relaxed group which surely added to the lovely atmosphere of this wedding.
Cheers guys!

Isn't she just the sweetest?


Awwww, look at that smile! And those big blue eyes! Please meet Charlotte and isn't she just the sweetest little thing! Charlotte and her Mum came in a few weeks ago for a baby portrait.  She is just on 7 months old which is a great age to photograph babies, and Charlotte certainly didn't disappoint!

Charlotte didn't mind if she was wearing pearls or a feather boa, a knitted hat or posing with Lamb, she thought it was all great fun!


I loved having Charlotte here in the studio, babies are great to have around. She laughed and played and was the perfect model all round. Many thanks to Charlotte's Mum for allowing me to create some beautiful memories of this precious time in your babys' life.

Doggy Diva

Well the long and the short of it (Oh I know! I promise that's the last bad height joke) is, lovely Lisa the dachshund just could not see what the fuss was all about. Posing was simply out of the question as far as Lisa was concerned. The look on her face said "I don't get out of bed for under 10 doggy treats!"

Eventually, after Lisa had perused the area, she decided we could have a little of her time and posing talent. Lisa and her owner then went on to sit for a lovely set of pet portraits.


Thanks for some great fun in the studio Lisa! I look forward to seeing you strut your stuff on the catwalk (should that be dogwalk???) again soon!

Catching up with Old Friends

My bestest buddy when I was a kid was Nelle. Nelle and I did everything together and we had a great time doing it. Sadly we lost contact for a few years but met up again about 3 years ago now. Nelle has been living in England for about 5 years and her visits back home are few and far between, so, when she said she was coming for a visit in late November last year, I dropped everything to go and play with Nelle.

Now, Nelle is a great talker and she gets that from her Mum (my Aunty Rosemary) so when the three of us went out for lunch, well even the restaurant staff had trouble getting a word in! So, we chatted and laughed our way through a beautiful lunch at Customs House overlooking the harbour at Newcastle, then moved on to Hamilton for afternoon tea with Nelles' beautiful daughters (Sarah and Georgie) and sister Julianna (Boppy) and Bop's kids Cam and Belinda, plus we had Nelle's grandson Jayson with us right through the day as actual fact, Jayson is the point of this post, but I will get to that! Anyway, with all of us telling stories and laughing til we cried I am quite sure the lovely bar we had over run thought they had been invaded by thousands of clucking chooks!

Not only do Nelle and I excel at talking, we are also very good at eating. After lunch and afternoon tea we made our way to one of the local pubs in a Hamilton back street for the best Chinese meal I have had in years. Here we met up with some of our old school friends that I hadn't seen for 25 years or more. As you can imagine, there was a bit more chatting and laughter over a couple of wines while we were there.

It was a whirlwind visit, I was only there for just under 24 hours but we managed to cram so much into it, and had the best time.

Now, lets get to the point! I mentioned Nelle's grandson Jayson - well what a happy young man he is, with the most beautiful eyes. Here are a couple of photos that I took of this beautiful boy while I was there. Can't wait to do it all again, hurry up and come home Nelle, some of us miss you!
