Did you know that most of my shoots are in and around North Brisbane? It’s not that I prefer the north but I’ve found that its easy to get to for everyone. The two spots that I absolutely love are on the M1 motorway so no matter if you live in South Brisbane or North Brisbane it’s pretty easy to get to. Everyone says their trip took “30 minutes” which is funny because it takes me 30 minutes from Newstead! We are so lucky to live in Brisbane, the scenery isn’t dramatic but it’s pretty and we have the best glorious light ever especially this time of year in June the sun is so pretty and soft. Lets face it, its all about the light! If you have any questions about locations please send me an email. I am always open to new locations but I have a few that are pretty special and easy to get to. Bx

Sometimes you meet couples and you know they were made for each other. I don't believe in fate but I do believe in a perfect match and these two are it. We met them in London and knew we were going to be friends for a very long time. Lisa and I are would spend endless hours discussing photography and encouraging each other to fulfil our dreams when we lived in London. Lisa is an amazing photographer herself so it was a real honour to be asked to take their portraits (See Lisa's work here). Unbeknownst to me Lisa and Nelson were pregnant at the time of this photoshoot so it takes on a whole new and very exciting meaning. Even though they live in Sydney and us in Brisbane we remain close friends to this day. Thanks for asking me guys, I have to say I am very proud of these images. Partly because I love you and partly because I managed to work out your Contax film camera!!!!!!!....... on the fly / with your help. haha. Love you both so much xoxoxoxoxoxox

I get a bit emotional looking at mums with their children. Its such a beautiful thing. My mum has always been there for me, consistently and without judgement. She has supported all of us kids no matter what from the time we were babies until now. Sounds obvious but its not. These boys have their mums and it was a privilege to document the connection they have together. Lidia you are such a beautiful mum & woman thank you for asking me to take your portraits I hope to meet you again in the future. Bxxx
