I am so happy to share these images with you today! Nessi and Taps were an absolute dream to photograph. Not only did they look cute (props to mum who dressed them beautifully) but they were a lot of fun. It was the perfect afternoon for a Brother & Sister photoshoot, the sunlight was crazy (in a good way) and these two really do love each other - you can see it in every image. I really felt like I'd created some pretty amazing memories that day. What a privilege. Bx
This family. What can I say?
When I thought about photographing 3 children I have to admit I was a bit nervous. I won't lie.
But I shouldn't of been nervous at all, Caitlin and Andy are THE most relaxed parents on the planet and because of that so were their kids. If there is any advice I can give parents before their photoshoot, it would be to channel some CALM, it really helps a lot. Your kids feed off you in a way that is quite amazing. Im not saying the whole photoshoot went without a hitch, they never ever do, its part of photographing children......but it was a lot of fun and we were able to create some pretty fun images together. Images that I am very very proud of.
Hope you enjoy this Blog post of the Kehoe family amongst the mangroves and beautiful long grass of Nudgee Beach in Brisbane's north.
Yes Caitlin looks so gorgeous because of the awesome Olivia! From Little Olive Styling, thanks Liv xxx

This image was one of the last frames of the day.... hence the sweets :) The kids did amazing, mum and dad were getting into the swing of our photoshoot and were connecting beautifully. Its what I dream of when I prepare for a shoot of any kind. Being able to capture your connection, whether we are at a beach on the Sunshine Coast or a park in Brisbane it doesn't matter, thats just a backdrop. What matters is your images convey how you really feel about each other.... thats the difference between a snap shot and an image that has been created with team effort. That team is you and your preparation before the shoot, Olivia doing her thang with hair and makeup and me as the photographer on the day helping you to relax and enjoy your experience.
Professional portraits are not flukes, they are thoughtful elements that come together to create magic....... Bx
Do you find it hard to talk yourself up? I'd rather run down the street naked than do it. Its a problem (no one wants to see that) esp when you own a business. So rather than me tell you what I'm like how about I let my clients do the talking..... problem solved. This is not a "look how good I am" type of post (see I'm doing it now...) its more a way of you to get to know me better. When people take the time to write such beautiful words like Navin's its a real gift. They've taken time out of their busy day to write real, honest, touching words for you... wow. Ive been in tears reading some of them. So here is my first post from one of my all time favourite people Navin Chowdhry who even uses my photos on his IMDB profile to this day. What a lovely lovely man and gorgeous family. Thank you Nav and Charlie.... miss you too. Bx
