Welcome to another opportunity for to show gratitude for life, love, family and photography – 2015

Thank-you to my beautiful wife for capturing this moment today, which just about sums up how grateful I am!

My little cowgirl – off to a birthday party! Boy oh boy this little lady sure likes to dress up, one day she’s bat girl & the next a cow girl – YeHa!!


I absolutely love capturing childrens portraits but even more when it’s my own! It’s coming up to the crazy/busy time of year again (can you believe Christmas is just around the corner?!) so Mum’s & Dad’s don’t forget to take your cameras to all your family get togethers and as someone there to take your family photo – because – let me guess that in 99% of your family snaps, someones always missing!


Better yet, hire a professional portrait photographer! They are not as expensive as you think and what they craft for you is priceless, especially in years to come. I won’t use this as a shameless plug (as I know my style is not for everyone) –


Now get out there and enjoy your day!

Capturing the interactions between my dad & Lukas, it’s pretty awesome the relationship these two have. it’s not about the milestones for me, it’s about all the little interactions.

The moments in between.

Thirteen months old and already bursting with personality. I got into a bad habit of packing up all my kit and only bring it out for work. Back when Aly was the same age I had a camera permanently strapped to my hand. So my vow to myself – get back into creative habits and document my family as I do for others.

Most importantly just get back to shooting for me.

Morning monkeying around

I’ve always loved working with children but I have to say – I LOVE working with my own little munchkins. They are just so full of life and I enjoy having fresh portraits (or series of portraits) to adorn my walls.

As soon as the lovely wife spotted these she asked when we can have a framed print ready to hand!


I was talking to a good mate of mine who is (re) discovering the joys of photography and used an off camera flash technique to fill the room with light to create this ‘high key’ effect.  I love the clean look to these series of portraits and especially Aly’s cheeky smile at the end.

If you would also love a portrait of your children (like this), please contact me either via phone (0411 056 277) or email ( – I have a lot of other examples on my ‘work’ website (

Hear from you soon; in the meantime enjoy my family portraits,
