Here is the final blog post of Laura and David’s maternity photography shoot at Schwerkolt Cottage in Ringwood. This was my first attempt at this kind of shoot, but these gorgeous guys made it easy for me I think. Since that shoot, Laura gave birth to a healthy and beautiful baby girl named Marie-Claire. If you are after a maternity shoot for yourself or as a gift, feel free to drop me a line from the contact page or the Facebook page or even go old school and call. The shoot session fee including location shoot 1-2 hours and a viewing of the edited images is $190, with prints starting from as little as $75. I think every couple should have a shoot like this to celebrate a truly beautiful time in their lives.
Last Monday was the wedding of Sally and Brenton at All Smiles of the Yarra Valley. With the Converse kicks to the funky S&B custom logos on everything, makes it photographer’s gold. Add to that a couple very much in love, we made some awesome images that day. Here is just a taste. Be sure to like my Facebook fan page to be notified of the next instalment.
Welcome to Chloe and Adam’s wedding blog post. It has been a while since my last full post, I have been busy, so there is much more content to come. On top of that new branding! I’m busily changing over all of my marketing collateral and developing new product samples, all for a more identifiable brand and better reflection of who I am as a photographer.
So back to the blog post, I’ve known Adam for a while which is always great for an awesome day of photography. The Ballara Receptions venue was most impressive with their recent renovations, updating it to a great standard. Plus the food, so good! I’m most impressed. I thank Chloe and Adam for choosing me as their photographer, I had a ball at your wedding and I’d really appreciate if you (readers) share this post and like my newly renamed Facebook Page. Also thanks to Paul Benjamin for being my second photographer for the day.
Hello blog readers, it is time for another maternity shoot sneak peek, this time from couple Al and Glen, who are due with their first later this month. I was struggling for ideas for a location but I put myself in full research mode when I got the hot tip to look at old train stations. I decided on the disused station at Healesville only going off low resolution images on Google. Well I was blown away by how cool this place was and Al and Glen were excited at the locations potential. Maybe the little one will love trains! The light was great, there was many places to explore and we all had a great time. Be sure to share this post too….Cuteness factor 1000!
There is always a time in a photographer’s career there will be a subject that you haven’t photographed before. Even though photographing people is nothing new to me, having the focus being a baby bump (albeit this one was fairly well advanced) it was a new and different challenge for me. If I had learnt anything from my week long photography workshop I had in March, it was suggested by master photographer Jerry Ghionis that I shoot my own projects to grow as a photographer and go find some work by talking to people around me.
So I took that aboard and approached the gorgeous couple Laura and David, due September and organised a shoot with them. I must say these two were a dream in front of the camera, their mannerisms, interactions and affection for each other truly made great images. I didn’t even have to direct them half the time! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did photographing them. Share that baby love by sharing this post using the Facebook share button at the top of this post.

Well it has been some time since my last blog post, so to keep those winter blues at bay I have a warm and fuzzy collection of images from Erica and Ryan’s Wedding down in Sorrento earlier in Autumn. The day started off in two gorgeous rental properties just outside of town where Erica and Ryan got ready for their big day. This is always a bonus from a photography point of view having these well set up and bright rooms. The ceremony commenced under the beautiful big Gum Tree at the top of Sorrento Park, where Erica and Ryan’s beautiful story was told and their hands joined in holy matrimony. We had a great photo session in and around Sorrento Park including down by the beautiful trees lining the road (what a gem this place was). The reception rocked on into the night after some speeches full of laughs and tears. I did mange to steal them away from the festivities for a short while for photos on the point on the Sorrento Back Beach before the sun went to bed for the evening. I hope you enjoy the photos, all of Erica and Ryan’s wedding suppliers are listed below, so support local and click on their links. Be sure to share this post too!
Also a big thanks to Alexander Gardner and Jeremy for your work that day!
I had the amazing privilege of going to the Avalon Air Show earlier this year, which was not only for the first time but also a huge treat. I had a ball! The sounds of the flying aircraft and the crowd’s vibe was awesome. I’ll let the pictures do the talking. Just do some whooshing noises as you look at them.
Here is a little sneak peek of Erica and Ryan’s Wedding in Sorrento, where the ceremony took place in the park under the big tree, followed by a fun reception at All Smiles Sorrento. We had to get some beach photos while we were there; it was a must! Full details in the blog post. A big thanks to the talented Alexander Gardner for second photography duties and my logistics manager Jeremy.
Together since they were teenagers, this wedding was a true love story in every sense of the word. A gorgeous location coupled with a beautiful bride and groom made for excellent photographic-ness (if that’s even a word). It was great to see all of the family again together (a referral from Bianca and Travis). It was also great to see Alana and James used all local suppliers from the eastern suburbs, who none had disappointed. The package was completed by second photographer Justin Hill, who knows his stuff. You know the drill, share this post using the button on the top of this post.
