What a treasure it is to have had Beth’s gentle, insightful, tender and quite unique approach to real life family photography directed toward little Tully. Thank you Beth. I cannot recommend her talent highly enough. This one momento will stay with us always.

Do you find that what you remember of it is a few fleeting images? Here’s another question: when you take a little family holiday, do you take pictures? Earlier this year my […]

In the digital age of photography, do you find you take more pictures now than ever before? And do you think that’s a good thing? That you can take more, because costs have come down and you no longer pay for film and processing? If you’re thinking yes, more is better, then my question is […]

I loved every word that you wrote and devoured every grain/texture/light/detail of the finished photos of your nephew, Angus. I am “guilty” of taking zillions of photos of the family occasion/travel spot/person and have not yet selected the best of the bunch.
Thank you for reminding me that less is more in photography as it is in cooking, letter writing, chats with long time friends and strangers alike.

I think Grandfathers and Grandmothers don’t really get enough publicity in our society.  In some culture Grandparents are highly valued, but we seem to down play them in Aussie life… or is that just me?!

Alani and Maya are the gorgeous girls of Ant and Cilla.  We spent a morning together down by the water in Yarralumla in Canberra, just before Christmas one year. The girls were terribly excited and this photo was captured at the beginning with Anthony.  Just tooooo gorgeous!!! So a little bit of sisterly loveliness for […]

Jeff and Clare and I go back to their wedding in 2001. When we had our preliminary meeting for their new family story we were laughing that time is marching on and we’re getting old! They now have three gorgeous children – Helen, Thomas and Anna. As each child turned 8 months, they’ve asked me […]

Late last year before Christmas, Elaine decided to book me to photograph her with all her siblings. She said her Mum and Dad had no current pictures that beautifully captured all their children together. Elaine warned me – this was not going to be a walk in the park – no pun intended. It would […]

A couple of years ago I documented The Apple of their Eye. It was the family story of Cathy, Chris and their little apple Lauren. They were from Canada, living in Canberra for just one year. The initial desire was to find the right photographer to beautifully capture Lauren’s little 3.5 year old cheeks. But […]

I’ve just gone back in time to Our Haven Home, today’s inspiration for Monday Musing.  Ahhhh gosh I love what I do….family stories are just so fascinating and a revelation each time I embark on one. I believe that every single family posesses its own values and vibe.  Terry and Mia are raising their gorgeous […]

Today’s inspiration comes from Adam and Tina, who are celebrating the safe arrival of Luka, their third child. I think when a new baby is born time kind of stops for a while for the parents and family of the new baby. Everything is new and yet to be known. In November 2010 they’d just […]
