a holiday in Cambodia....

so this little shoot is THAT gorgeous!!!

this is my very good friend Brett who came over for a few beers in my yard one afternoon and i made him (reluctantly) pose for me
i love to shoot people just as they are.... to see their soul shine thru
especially men as they hate getting photos taken

anyway Brett rocked it.......
Mackay's next male model i reckon!

so this awesome guy is setting off for Cambodia today in search of the world
i really hope that the world finds him x


Can you believe its another fresh new year...... 2018 WOW!!!!
HNY to all,
I hope you've spent it with those you love, partied, ate and drank way to much, spent all your cash and are exercising like a maniac as your pants are too tight!
well that's my reality anyway

I just wanted to start the year with a message of LOVE
Love for yourself & what is that you do
This year I hope to focus on my passion.... Photography
my wild one is starting Kindy and my beauty is studying year 12.
All important things going on for us here
In our busy chaos though we always need to make space for the things we love, the things that drive us, light our soul and make this crazy world make sense
I love that a new year gives us all time to reflect on where we are & where we want to be
Inspired... yes I am

Whats your plans this year? Are you excited??
Hope to cross your path and make some magic together xx


ps. I am TOTALLY addicted to overalls!

Finding beauty..........

my favourite thing is finding beauty in the everyday, the ordinary or the simple and to re-create, re-furb or just blend the old & the new..........

I shot the lovely Emma recently in a vacant house in my street, i'd been watching the grass get longer and the sun hitting it in afternoon light kept calling me over!
this is Em's first time in front of the camera and she totally ROCKED it

Local Mackay girl who I hope I have helped see herself for the incredible beautiful woman she is becoming. I always love to inspire and encourage women to believe in themselves and realize their own magic.

Stand in your power,
don't run from your fear
be yourself
love yourself for all the gifts you give to the world just by being you

be the girl who decided to go for it.....................

Wintermoon 2017

So being the weekend of the Springfest festival (so jealous as I couldn't attend!!!!)
I thought that maybe i'd finally do something with the images I took at the Wintermoon Festival this year which is held at Camerons Pocket, just out of Mackay every year on the May long weekend.

It was a very special weekend for my family so you may see our faces a bit but the
festival was incredible as always and I cannot wait until next year to do it all again with my beautiful friends.
If you ever get the chance GO TO WINTERMOON, its such a beautiful place full of nothing
but incredible Art, music & love x

Red E Personal Training- Little Black Dress Project

So I teamed up recently with the gorgeous Selina & crew from Red E Personal Training here in Mackay.  Selina came to me with a great idea to host a 'LIttle Black Dress' project that would run over 8 weeks.
The girls would train for the end result of looking and feeling fabulous in their favourite Little black dress,
having their hair & makeup done for a group photo shoot.
Such a great idea to motivate & empower women to want to create the best version of themselves,
pick up their self esteem/self worth and help them to see how absolutely incredible they are!

GREAT job to Selina and to all the fabulous women who trained so hard and totally ROCKED their shoot x

my new everything

so here it is...... a new website, a fresh start, a creative space or just a new way to look at things. whatever the case, THIS IS IT!

another part of my crazy wild life ride has hit and I have grown AGAIN and photography is still part of who and why I am. Living in beautiful Mackay & having the Whitsundays as my backyard makes it hard not to want to pick my camera up and capture it all. i am alive when i make it a part of my every day

to kick start my new everything i thought it a good idea to start this website with a blog on the reason i picked up a camera in the first place and loved the feel..... my daughter, my muse
she is that incredible, i love to shoot her face and the many emotions i know so well from our many years together. without her i wouldn't be blabbing on here now about my passion and the reason (beside my babies) that I feel a connection with things and see a magic still in this world that makes me smile.
thank you beautiful girl for making me love you so much that i also found myself and what I wanted to give the world..............
