I took my photo group this week to Herring Island in Melbourne. It’s a small island, very natural and largely untouched that is accessed by a little punt across the Yarra River. When I arrived we had about 60 attendees and I thought, it’s a cloudy day and not a lot to do on this […]

Great tips, thanks Beth. I have young kids & they (still) enjoy posing for me so that I can practice my skills.

I reckon about every three years you need to do a professional portrait update. Your body and face change, you grow your hair, you get glasses, you drop some weight (or put on, as is the case for me!). I’m a bit slow on that uptake and have been using the same portrait (a selfie, […]

Merry Christmas!! Yes today is a day off from working, but you know me, it’s hard to put the camera down. I kept it by my side this year, for most of the day and I thought I’d post a few frames here. In the morning I saw my sister, brother-in-law and their children. In […]

Berlin has been unbelievably good to me.  In my Berlin Portrait series I captured fleeting moments in time in the loungerooms, bedrooms and kitchens of six amazing ladies. They willingly gave me their time and space to make a record of who they are at this moment in their lives. Kerstin is my final Berlin […]

Phia is my latest muse in my Berlin Portrait series. An absolutely lovely creature and a delight to photograph. Thank you Phia, it was lovely capturing you in your home and hearing your story. Phia ‘Where I live is described as ‘dreiländereck’ – literally ‘corner of three lands’. I think that makes it sound like […]

U are beautiful inside out gf.

Beth Jennings - June 15, 2012 - 8:24 pm

Farah, you are SO right!! She is beautiful. xx

I’d like to explore why people are here in Berlin. What are they doing here, what’s attracted them, has it delivered, or disappointed? Everyone has a different story and I’d like to discover these people and present them to you. Each person will be asked to write something about their life here to accompany the […]

For a mum to see her first borne so incredibly loving and happy is just fabulous. These photographs have captured the essence of the family relationship and I feel so very proud to know that this little family is part of mine.

From a very proud grandma, mother and mother-in-law.

Best wishes
Gail xx

Gail what an amazingly proud thing to say. Thank you so much for taking the time to put down your thoughts here. It’s so great that you’re so proud of your family and that this collection reflects all that you see in them. Bethxxx

As a family, David and Alissa always want family photos.  The trick for them is finding someone with a trained eye, that can see everyone there.  They have two lovely boys, Harry (Henry, actually, but known as Harry) and Archer, otherwise known as Arch or Archie.  Archie is just one month old.  This is a […]

Dear Beth

You have helped us to capture a series of memories for our family that are at once beautiful, fragile and unique. The glorious collection of our family, our Slice of Heaven, are a constant reminder of how lucky we are and the joy of living and love that binds us.

Thank you so very very much

Alissa, David, Harry and Archer

Wow David what an amazing comment, thank you so so much. I loved creating this beautiful collection for you, and I love that you love it all so much!
You are so very very welcome.

When I met with Terry and Mia, and heard about their unique family, I thought, you bet, let’s go! They own Foxy’s Landscapes, and have been contributing their amazing design and landscaping skills to the Canberra region for years.  They’ve been so busy meeting other people’s needs that they were forgetting their own. They knew […]

Beth. Those pictures are stunning. What a beautiful family (and garden).

Beth Jennings - December 2, 2011 - 2:19 pm

:) Thank you Kathy for your thoughts you are so right, they are a stunning family and their world is really something to behold.

It’s really something, bringing a new baby into the world.  I mean, really, something. Katti and Björn have just had their second baby, Bent. He now accompanies his big brother Jan.  Katti and Björn are from northern Germany, (Bent is in fact a Danish name). I met them here in Hannover in 2007. When I […]

Thank you, where ever you are!

Hello Marianne! Thank you so much for the lovely comment! Yes, I feel every family deserves to have this kind of photography, it’s a very unique way of photographing family, purely my own! Keep in touch, you never know I may just return one day to Hannover!
