Portrait

Words from Mel & Dave

engagement-photos-brisbane
My husband and I feel we are not very photogenic people, so we were nervous and apprehensive about about having a photoshoot. Britt took our engagement photos and later our post-wedding portraits. Far exceeding our expectations, we had a ball! Britt made us feel so relaxed and comfortable. Her energy and warmth is contagious. No awkward or tacky poses, just natural, real and candid shots in beautiful, creative backdrops. Britt worked her talents to make us look good. We are so thrilled we chose Britt, and now have an amazing collection of photos we’ll treasure forever. We can’t recommend Britt highly enough to deliver the most stunning shots! Thank you Britt, you are incredibly amazing!

Molly the beautiful

Some locations, like this one at Hampstead Heath in London, take your breath away and then add beautiful light, backdrop and subject its almost like photographing a dream.  It doesn't look real and you know it as you click on each shutter... click...click...click... you feel the excitement because you are fully aware that you are creating something wonderful together.   Its the best feeling in the world (ok not in the world but at the time it sure feels like it!).

This is Molly she is an actress and model.  I had the privilege of meeting her on a Inside Crochet magazine shoot and then later for some creative portrait headshots.  Pretty much the most fun a photographer can have on a shoot.  Wishing you lots of happiness Molly, one day we might meet again. Bx

Golden Hour Family Shoot

{Brisbane Family Photographer}

When you want to announce to the world you are pregnant why not do it with a family photoshoot!!!  Amy got a flower crown for herself and little Millie to mark the occasion.  It added a little bit of fun and extra gorgeousness that felt right for a baby bump announcement.  

Shooting outdoors is such a lovely experience for the kids, they really love being outside and there are plenty of things to capture their attention.  During the shoot I try and mix things up a bit for the kids, it just doesn't work doing portraits the whole time.  I find letting them explore for a few minutes on their own gives them a break and gives me an opportunity to get so pretty shots in the long grass.

Hope you enjoy this sweet family.  Can't wait to meet the new addition!!

Pop the champaign, Dave & Mel are engaged!!!

{Brisbane Engagement Session}

The joy and happiness that emanates from these images is so contagious.  It helps that Mels smile is the best i've ever seen.  Pure and unrestrained happiness coming from that face of hers.  I LOVE it.  

Engagement sessions are pretty special.  I've always felt like the engagement shoot is almost (I said almost!!!) as important as the wedding photos.  Basically because after you are married those portraits take on a new meaning.  At the time you are most probably only thinking about the wedding but its after that you look back on those images with so much fondness, they bring back memories of before the wedding, of how you met and fell in love.  Probably how young you looked too!  hehe.  I know thats how I feel when I look at our engagement photos.  I am still to this day SO GRATEFUL we got them done!.  Hope you enjoy looking through these sweet pastel delights, Mel & Dave looked stunning and as you can see had a lot of fun during our shoot together.  Bx
