willow { thirteen months old } wagga child portrait photography

Willow made me work hard for the smiles that she gave out, they were as precious as gold. But i always love the serious looks too. Her funky handbag was a great hit and such a beautiful prop, especially with her little tutu, and it used to belong to her grandmother, so that makes it extra special.

hair rehab { a design project }

Some of you may already know that I actually started off as a graphic designer, I got my degree here in Wagga at CSU. I love graphic design. I miss it. So occasionally when a groovy little project comes along i jump at the chance to do a bit of design on the side. I am fussy with the projects I take on, as i dont want to do a lot of design, but this one was just too glamorous to miss.

Kath has just opened her new hairdressing salon up in Barrand Street in Wagga, and so we redesigned her business cards to match the new location. Its in a cute little heritage building, and we already had pink in her original colour scheme, but we added the black.

Kath does great cuts and colour, and somehow manages to cover up my greys, and she really shines at upstyles. She is responsible for a lot of the hair styles you see on the blog for my creative and model shoots. Check her out!

the wedding of wayne and rebekah

Wayne and Rebekah have such a lovely way with each other, they are totally happy in each others company. They got ready together and we did the family photos before the ceremony, and the whole day was beautifully calm. We started our photo session off at the Euonyhareenyha Winery, where Wayne proposed, and then stopped off at a pretty spot on the side of the road on the way to the MTC for their reception.

benjamin { two years old } wagga wagga child cake smash photographer

Benjamin came in for a visit, and he not only bought mum and dad with him, but some cupcakes and huge balloon in the shape of the number two. How much fun did we have? Lots.

He takes the art of eating cupcakes very very seriously.

the wedding of luke and pamela

Luke and Pam celebrated their black and white themed wedding at the Manor House in Albury on a beautiful day. Luke used to live here in Wagga and met the love of his life after a move to Melbourne, so the wedding was held half way between. Their was lots of love, hugs and tears at this wedding. You could feel all kinds of emotions flitting through the warm spring air.

what to wear

A beautiful colour palette for a family session. The pic says maternity but i think the colours and styles would suit any type of session.

lindas modelling session { part two } wagga fashion photography

Another burst of rain gave us a last minute location change, which worked out brilliantly! This was really a team effort, not just the makeup and hair but the styling as well. If you saw four women arguing over which shoes best suited the models look in a carpark a couple of weeks ago, that was probably us.

such cuteness!

Found this series while i was doing a story book for sophie, thought it was cute so had to post it!


Taryn was looking forward to her year ten formal when the rules all changed and there was no more formal. But we decided to do a formal styled fashion shoot anyway. We even had a tiara, but we forgot to use it! The day we had scheduled rained with no chance of letting up, but we did the whole session anyway, we just used our Plan B and some umbrellas. We just had to be creative about our locations.

lindas modelling session

We had an absolute ball doing a modelling session for Linda. It rained and then the sun came out and then it rained again, but we stuck with it, laughed it off and got some great shots. This session will get split up into a few posts cause there are so many i like!

A round of applause for the team who helped me out on this one:

I cant say enough great things about these girls, they were a treat to work with on the day. I am trying to think up an excuse to get my hair and makeup done so i can get a photo session of my own. Maybe I should set a wedding date?

A behind the scenes glimpse, its all glamorous in the back of my car.

ruby, ava and stella { wagga wagga child portrait photography }

Sometimes when i want a shot like this one

i end up with a shot like this one.

I'd like to think Stella was crawling towards me to give me hugs, but i really think she was just fascinated by the big black box in front of my face! I started laughing, which is what Ava is cracking up about. And Ruby is just being Ruby.... all three girls just doing their own thing.
