Kennett family – family photography townsville

I've lived in Townsville for almost 20 years and am still being surprised with new locations I've never heard about. Cassie called me before Christmas to arrange a shoot for her family. Cassie has just graduated from university and is about to move away to the beautiful Sunshine Coast and work in her field. She thought it would be a ...

Welcome Sadie – newborn photographer Townsville

You may remember Jess, Jesse and Asta from their recent pregnancy family shoot that I shared. This stage of life really is incredible with everything changing so quickly. Sometimes it can feel like a blur so it's important to capture these special moments. We wanted to do something a little different for this shoot. Jess is a strings music teacher and ...

The gift of gratitude this Christmas – 2018

Over the years, when I deliver people their photos I often ask them how the images make them feel. The most common answer – GRATEFUL! Having photos taken to document the relationships that are special to you is an act of gratitude. It’s taking a moment to look at and reflect on what is most important in your life – the people ...

mindful works – commercial photography townsville

I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with Sharn from Mindful works to capture headshot images for her website. We were after a natural, earthy look that was also professional. The shoot took place in our Townsville photography studio. I think we may have chatted more than we shot but because of this Sharn was comfortable in front of the camera. We enjoyed ...

Let’s sit loosely with that – commercial photography Townsville

The brief I was given from Kylie for her photoshoot was the images needed to be natural, have a Tropical North Queensland vibe with subtle hints of The Defence Force. These were shot for Kylie's personal brand and website (soon to be launched). The location chosen was her home in North Ward, Townsville. Megan :)
Ember's family - townsville photographer

Ember’s family – townsville photographer

Having family visiting is the perfect opportunity to document relationships. There was lots of love shared on this beautiful afternoon and the centre of that love was little Ember.  With golden hair, big brown eyes and the sweetest nature she had everyone wrapped around her little finger... including me. She particularly loved flying high as super girl. Watching her toes curl and ...

Faith – family photos Home Hill

Capturing Faith and the Swindley family on the special occasions of Faith's Debutante Ball was the second shoot I did when I visited my home town of Home Hill recently. With 3 generations present it was really special. At our first location I captured Great Grandma's portrait as she will be 90 later this year. Watching the interaction between the generations was ...

Family photos in Home hill – Brotto family

Lara and Jeff's 2nd son Ben was a partner for the Home Hill Debutante Ball, so with all her boys looking very smart Lara thought she would take the opportunity to update her family photos. The tricky part was Ben needed to be at ball rehearsal at 4.30pm... this meant we couldn't use the afternoons beautiful golden light. I traveled down to ...

Grandad’s visit – extended family photoshoot

The lovely White family had a special visitor coming all the way from the UK so wanted to document the occasion with some photos. This was Grandad's 2nd trip to Australia. The whole family adore having him stay. The boys were never far from his side throughout the shoot. When choosing a location for the shoot I wanted something classically ...

  • An unforgettable moment at Teegan and Sean’s wedding last year. Little Marley was getting amongst it. 😆 I love how kids are so unpredictable.
  • The excited expression on her face says it all.
  • Even the Great Danes were included in this pregnancy/newborn shoot. I've popped my favorites on the blog. Check them out using the link in bio.

  • Here he is... Logan. This is the little guy who just couldn't wait to make his entrance into the world. He was in such a hurry Jemmah's pregnancy shoot almost didn't happen. (read the previous post) I'm grateful he gave us a few hours grace to allow us to capture the pregnancy stage. Isn't he the sweetest!

  • THE PREGNANCY SHOOT THAT ALMOST DIDN'T HAPPEN - Scheduled for the first time during 'the big wet', this shoot had to be rescheduled 3 times before we finally had a day with enough light to shoot. We were ready to shoot at 8.30am.... that was until Jemmah's water broke at 6.30am. Amazingly she still wanted to go ahead. "Don't worry, we've got this" her message to me read. I shuffled a few of my other bookings around, pushing her shoot time back and after she was checked over at the birth center she was given the all clear to go home and do the shoot. I am so pleased I got to document this special time. As the day went on I couldn't help but wonder how everything was going. I got a text message the following day... a boy! Stay tuned for the newborn photos, he is a cutie!!

  • If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard “I will have my family photos taken after I loose weight”
