5.43 – time to make a change. Looked down, didn’t like what I saw. Got off my butt & went to the store, bought some sneakers. Got home, hung out with the wife & kiddies, sat down, responded to client emails, wrote some copy for my website.


Figured out I was procrastinating by working… Got off my bum & onto the cross trainer… 40min later 5.43km..

Now I have a benchmark, now to work harder.

I’ve been pondering my photography of late, not my business sort of thing but who I am with a camera & especially why I do it.

 I have a little company (insert plug – & it has a pretty specific focus, photographing children’s baptisms & christenings in and around Melbourne (even all the way to Geelong)! Anyhow I digress – looking at my ‘work’ website it may seem like the only time I’m playing around with a camera is when I’m capturing christening events – but it’s only a very small facet of me behind the lens.

 Like many families I find myself to be super time poor (& super bad at time management) with a beautiful wife & two terrific (young & very cheeky) kids, I tend to do my photography work, editing and catching up on emails once the cherubs have gone to sleep. What tends to happen is that by the time I’ve got to the stage I need to write words to go along with my imagery or edit my own personal work I’m simply pooped! So it either doesn’t happen or happens really badly!

two beautiful hearts




I was honoured when Bernie contacted me regarding her upcoming wedding to Graham. We had met before while I was capturing the christening of little Sofia. These two gorgeous people celebrated in style at Butleigh Wootton surrounded by family & friends.





just too cute not to share – melbourne portraiture

I’m very excited to be meeting a new family tomorrow & capturing their precious little one’s christening day (stay tuned to my work site – for some beatuiful new work). While preparing, there is nothing quite like working on a personal portrait to get me all pumped and ready to capture something special.

Continuing on from my series, this portrait of Alysia is just too cute not to share.

Working through these personal portraits, editing for some beautiful wall art to adorn our home (still deciding between a framed canvas or traditional framed prints).

I just love her cheeky smile – but I’m a little biased 😉


Light & love,
