Radhika and Alfred. A Wedding Story.

I don’t photograph many weddings in a year, so when you see one that I have photographed, you gotta know they must be a pretty awesome couple.
Sweet, lovely, fun, and so in love (like really cute together) I was very privileged to be a part of Alfred and Radhika’s special day.

Radhika and Alfred were married at St Mary Magdalene’s in Rose Bay, followed by a reception at Dunbar House, on the 28th January, 2017.

I cannot praise enough my gorgeous second shooter,
Anna Hamilton ( She kept me laughing, and her talent made my job easy.

Jessica and Simon. A Wedding Story.

I had already photographed this beautiful couple on a balmy evening at Cremorne Point – where Simon had proposed to Jessica (see here). They were such lovely people to be with, in love and so sweet, that I just knew their wedding was going to be perfect.

It was.

A cool, sun-drenched June day, with a ceremony at Christ Church Lavender Bay and reception at Sergeants Mess in Chowder Bay. We chased a setting sun, but were rewarded with a stunning wintry dusk.

Congratulations Mr and Mrs Burk, and biggest thanks to Lesley Hamlyn (Luminescent) – I couldn’t have done it without you!

This little beastie was on India’s bedroom floor.



















Right near the cat, who was nonchalantly stretching pretending to be disinterested (at least while we were watching)













But after a quick hop around Evan’s disco keyboard we set the intruder free.

We used yesterday’s flower crowns in a cool shoot that I won’t have time to work on for a while.

Here’s an out-take from it, though.

366 Days. 8th March, 2016.

International women’s day, so I thought I’d get a shot of some very hard-working women I know. This group of girls I have at the moment are the best layers!














But then in the afternoon, I decided to finally teach my girls how to make a flower crown, and they did such a great job of it! Just beautiful.

The girls needed some dressy clothes for a party, so of course they needed to raid my wardrobe.














Crazy that as teeny tiny as they are, both still struggled to fit my wedding dress top that I wore at age 27.

366 Days. 3rd March, 2016.



I have never snorkeled in Cabbage Tree Bay, but have always wanted to. I decided it was time to check out the water clarity, with another underwater maternity session coming up soon, and I just so happened to chat to a friend who swims there every day, and she offered to take the girls and I on a snorkel tour. It was so kind, and informative too!

Our mermaiden guide, Elaine…














and my water babies.














Gorgeous place to snorkel. So many fish!

But as you can see in this shot above, the clarity isn’t consistent enough for me to do a shoot there.

Mum’s 80th birthday.

I just love her to bits. I took some beautiful photos of her, but I think she would prefer me to keep them out of the www, so I’ll share her cake and cards instead.

































Added bonus for the day, I had company while I did the grocery shopping.
