These are my little friends Zoelei and Saila. I asked their Mum if I could borrow them for the afternoon to scout out a new location in Brisbane. They got all dressed up for me and really got into our little shoot. Little darlings they are! Thank you Z&S for being so awesome and also for having the coolest mum around! Bxxx
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
I am totally up for thinking outside the box and challenging the norm. Bet you didn't know that about me :)
Dave and Mel are also like this, they wanted their wedding day to be about them and their guests. They didn't want to leave their friends for a couple of hours and miss out on all the fun. I totally get that. It's your wedding day, you do what ever the hell you want! So when they asked me to take their portraits after the wedding day I jumped at the chance.
I knew straight away this was an opportunity to take some stunning portraits in a very very relaxed setting without all the stress of the wedding day. It didn't disappoint!
We took their engagement photos in a pretty sunny spot with long grass so this time we wanted something a little different and quirky..... thank you Mount Cootha Botanical Gardens!!! We had a blast seriously. Couldn't think of a more perfect spot to take your portraits Mel and Dave. Thanks for asking me it was such a privilege to spend two afternoons with you making photos together. Bxx
Be still my beating heart.....
Caitlin sharing a moment with her little Dexter. Dexter on the other hand couldn't stop checking out my camera! haha. Those eyes .....
And then i realised.... adventures are the best way to learn.
A little "adventure" i undertook with some of my dear friends. One of those ideas that quickly become a reality and actually comes together how you imagined it. Can't wait to share more. Bx
