Jay’s 60th – {Forbes and Eugowra Event Photography}

I was absolutely thrilled to photograph Jay’s 60th Birthday party late last year and it was such a wonderful event to be part of. Jay and his family are such warm, lovely people and the day went off without a hitch (careful planning!). Beautiful food, singing and a room full of great people.

Celebrating this amazing man were friends, family, classmates and colleagues and we hung onto his every words during speeches. Performances from his beautiful daughter, Diya, just brought the atmosphere alive.

Thank you so much for having me Jay and Sampa!

Ari & Ava & Co. {Forbes Family Photographer}

Had such a beautiful time with these guys, Ava is a happy happy dot and Ari is big time animated and loads of fun. And what a beautiful family to spend the day with.


Thanks for having me and being so ‘you’! I love love love these photos!

Harry & Eve – Sydney Family Photographer

I haven’t blogged since June 2017 but 2018 is here, and so am I! HELLO! It’s going to be a GREAT year and one of my goals is to blog sessions as they come. I have other goals, there’s a lot happening behind the scenes right now. Exciting times ahead.


What better way to kick it off than with my beautiful little friend, Harry, and his new baby sister, Eve. I’ve photographed Harry and his parents and grand mothers twice before and one of them was when he was Eve’s age. They are CRAZY alike, just couldn’t believe it. I love 3 year olds – they are so unpredictable but also happy to engage with me which I love… funny creatures.


Such a sweet, gorgeous family xx



The most beautiful commercial shoot – Nura Australia – Forbes Commercial Photographer

Sometimes I just feel so lucky to get so many amazing opportunities as a country photographer to work with so many different people and do so many different things. It is so important to me to have a fantastic working relationship with any client and to be able to use my skills and capabilities to ensure the shoot is banging! And exactly what their vision is, and how I can achieve that. Lots of planning goes into a successful shoot and working with toddlers and babies is hard, hard work. But totally doable with the right plans and energy. Our babies were just so happy, fun and keen nearly the whole time (*nearly*). Once the booking is final we can really get into the logistics, and plan plan plan. My experience with both product shoots and also working with babies/toddlers/kids was exactly what Penny was looking for. I’m so glad we found each other! I had a blast and knowing that the images are exactly what she wanted and more means more to me than anything.

These are Australian Made Baby & Children’s clothing and their website has just launched today! The clothes are locally made using fabric designed by Australian Artists. The prints are so beautiful! So Australian and so unique and would make the perfect gift for any baby or toddler and also for overseas relatives. I’d take one of everything but my youngest is 5 ..maybe I could squeeze him into The Bella Bloomers!

Look at our beautiful babies ♥ They were all utter champions despite the cold at the end of the day and I hope they had as much fun as we did. Big thank you to Carlee and Flynn, Elise and Henry, Mel and Maddi, Naomi and Layla, Sally and Alice and Georgie and Harry. All those changes of cloths is a bugger of a thing to do but we all got there.

Lastly I’d like to thank Penny for trusting me with her line. When you are starting a new clothing line you want everything to go smoothly and we really worked well together. Would love to work for you again in the future and I wish you every success with nura australia ♥ ♥
