Oh my how gorgeous. Lorraine Bennett of Classical Ballet Centre Canberra has a thriving business teaching ballet to children. Recently we updated her professional portraits. Then, during my May visit in Canberra we captured her ballet school in action. This was a successful exercise in collaboration – we spoke on the phone initially, then met […]

I’m a bit excited. Wanna know why? Because I’m about to embark on a three-edition, 12 month advertising campaign for my beautiful, lovely, very special product called Your Family Story. In which magazine you ask? The gorgeous, luscious, heartfelt Little ONE Baby. I met the associate editor Amy in Bendigo a couple of months ago […]

[youtube]http://youtu.be/mOkA-4V5-ck[/youtube] How to explain the collaborative process? Ah…it’s a mysterious thing, arriving at the final destination. You would think, looking at this video, that the written content was complete and as you hear it now, before we shot the images. It didn’t quite roll out that way… Emma has been exploring various themes in her […]

Awwwww a beautiful, eloquent tight little story…love where you guys are heading with this…I can see these narrative stories being for anyone who just wants to record a time and space moment in their lives. Love it ! great work you two x

Beth Jennings - April 20, 2012 - 10:00 am

Yeah…thanks Haley it is very well written isn’t it. A great story and it’s come together really well in the presentation. We’re really excited by this one!

Emma - May 12, 2012 - 12:14 pm

It is so wonderful to work with a photographer like Beth, she has such an intricate eye for visual language. Her photos tell stories I could never write on my own and I love how she captures beauty in every frame. There’s always so much love in her work. I think that staying open is the only way to collaborate effectively – you never know exactly what will happen, you just have to be ready to recognise and capture it when it does. Something Beth does very well. Hurry up and come back from Berlin please, I’m ready for more! xx

Beth Jennings - May 18, 2012 - 11:03 pm

Oh you say it so well Emma, staying open is the key to the collaboration indeed. I think we are both very good at that – the flow of ideas goes back and forth until we massage the piece to a point of completion… I do love working with you my dear you are amazing!! See you in Spring time so we can continue the collaborative adventure xx

On Saturday a second fundraiser event was held for the lovely Lisa. Lisa is fighting her cancer head on and to continue the fight she needs financial help. Like last time, in February, I came along and captured the story of the fundraising day itself. Held at Bundoora Park Heritage Village, this event attracted more […]

Hi Beth
honestly i have never come across someone who can tell a story thru images like you do.
each one is a treasured moment of a day that will forever live in the memories of all who attended
i think that the final series with Lisa and her parents really captured the strong bond that the O’Hara family have its honest fun and filled with love
we as a group who plan these events are blessed that we have you come along and capture the events so beautifully.

thank you my friend
cheers

Darryn Lee - April 16, 2012 - 7:44 pm

Well done Beth…
After meeting Lisa at the Feb event, it was not only a pleasure, but a mission to organise an event even bigger on this side of Melbourne..
As I said in a couple of my speeches, I was genuinely and emotionally overwhelmed by the attendance and the support, shown to a lovely girl that, I believe it is safe to say, more than 1/2 didn’t know…
Lisa, all these people were touched by your story, as I was, and it show…
I am sure that with yours, and your awesome parents appreciation shown on the day, these people would love to be right behind all the way…
With your Fight, your love of life, your appreciation, WE ALL LOVE YA….

It is amazing isn’t it, what people can bring together.
Well done to you on an outstanding job bringing all that together. I’m sure Lisa’s family are eternally grateful.

Beth Jennings - April 17, 2012 - 11:00 am

Owwwwwwww Beth these are beautifully breathtaking! I love love love this post she is stunning and you ave captured her innocence and intrigue bang on!

Beth Jennings - March 12, 2012 - 3:46 pm

She is beautiful, isn’t she? This is a show reel – a piece that showcases the actor – and by default showcases my work and way of seeing too. The perfect blend! She is amazing, though, isn’t she?!

Often I get asked: ‘Beth, I need a couple of portraits that say something about me that I can use on my website, other online spaces and in the occasional press article. I want it to be descriptive and not a mug shot.  Can you do that?’ Yes I can. The perfect example of a […]

Lisa’s video is up – :) please pass it on and tell your friends to post it on their walls and donate and – make it viral :)

Beth Jennings - February 14, 2012 - 3:14 pm

Yes Gary you are totally right! He did an awesome job – I know he didn’t end up in the photos I took bizarrely! He must have been flying around a lot and we didn’t cross paths. Not to worry! Brilliant day, by the looks over at facebook everybody is very pleased with everything all round. Best, B

Darryn Lee - February 14, 2012 - 3:55 pm

As the owner of the yellow/white car in the photos, I turned up on the day and, had never met Lisa in person..
By the end of the day, it fealt as she she was a life long friend..
Lisa is one hell of an inspirational, beautiful woman..
Lisa chose my car as the car, she most wished to take home, the trophy that was awarded to me will be cherished more than any other my car will ever be awarded…
I will always be there if there is to be other events organized in the future..
Luv ya Lisa

Beth Jennings - February 14, 2012 - 4:07 pm

Brilliant Darryn, very kind words from one kind soul (you) to another (Lisa). She is one lucky lady to have such awesome people behind her. Her video is amazing how she does it I will never know. B

Terrence C - February 14, 2012 - 9:50 pm

2011 is drawing to a close and it’s time to look back on the year that was. I’ve had some outstanding highlights this year: the business was based in Canberra, Sydney and Berlin. The camera workshops went really well, I helped some businesses get further along in their marketing and I captured some amazing and […]

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
