Nadine and Arlo

Nadine and Arlo were moving on from Townsville so Nadine contacted me to arrange a shoot. It was important to her to have beautiful images that showcased their Townsville lifestyle and also their relationship. After all, this is where Arlo was born and one day she’ll tell him the story of their life here.

Home was the perfect place to start and we then took a chilled walk down the beach. Arlo doesn’t know the meaning of the word chill, so he played! for me, there is nothing more photographically appealing than a wild and free three year old boy. As wild as he was, this little boy has a sensitive side. At one stage of the shoot he ran over to me, gently took my cheeks in his sandy little hands and softly kissed me on the lips. Heart melted!

I was picking sand out of my hair for days after this shoot and felt like I’d had a gym workout but the memory of this afternoon down the beach makes me smile. That’s what I hope Nadine does everytime she looks at these images and remembers her life in Townsville.

  • There is a beautiful story behind this photo - 
Whenever Jack notices his Mum has had a long tiring day at work he will disappear into his room and come out wearing this suit. He will then ask her to dance with him. I hope this photo always reminds both of them of these waltzing moments but even more so, I hope the dance continues forever.

  • Me today, in my new un-ironed Kmart dress, ponytail hair and no makeup :) I was shooting headshots earlier today so took the time to jump in front of the camera to capture one of my own. Not a lot of prep went into this and I think it goes to show you can overthink a lot of things. Done is better than perfect.

  • Looking forward to spending more afternoons like this. πŸ’“
  • I never got around to sharing this film I made of our Christmas. It's not exactly polished (could have been the 10 cocktails I had) but it's a pretty good representation of the day through my eyes. We had 28 for a sit down lunch so it  was hectic and full of action and love. . (and alcohol and food)
  • Some incredible feedback from a film I created for Suz and her family. It was beautiful to watch them, watch it, for the first time. This film accompanies the photos I took on the day so there is not need to choose between film or photo... you can have both. Megan :) I’ve already watched this 5 times and Megan only left about 20 mins ago πŸ˜†πŸ’• The most exquisite moments. I adore this already but imagine in 5, 10+ years time!!!!!! Photos are amazing but video especially with the interaction of Isla and Cali... priceless.
  • Little superboy flying high.. with a little bit of help from his super mumma.
