The B Family Portraits - South Burnett/Kingaroy Family Photographer

This time of the year is so great to get photographs taken. The beautiful afternoon light is around for alot longer now, and we took advantage of every drop of light this day. There's SO MANY shots I love from this family portrait session with the B family, that it was hard to choose what to show. Here are a few of my favourites, as well as what the family themselves loved.

The gorgeous Kiersten...

Beautiful mother and daughter, Fiona and Kiersten...even though Fiona looks like her sister!! :)

Love these images of Kyle...

See what I mean? Its so hard to choose.....

Terry & Jodie's Wedding - South Burnett/Kingaroy Wedding Photographer

In the days preceding Terry and Jodie's wedding, it rained. And rained. And rained. There was water EVERYwhere! But come Saturday morning, you couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day...even a little wind didn't dampen their spirits. Terry and Jodie had their beautiful kids around them to help them celebrate their love.

With gorgeous pale blue dresses and flowers made by Jodie's daughter Sam, the girls all looked amazing...pefectly complimenting Jodie's amazing figure-hugging wedding gown. Aren't they just STUNNING!! :)

Isn't Jodie a stunner!! LOVE her dress!!

The very suave Terry....and the so-in-love couple :)

To top it off, the late afternoon light was just breath-takingly beautiful *sigh*

Family Portraits - South Burnett/Kingaroy Family Photographer

I had the recent opportunity to photograph a small family reunion, with some family members having travelled all the way from the UK!
We met up on their secluded bushland family property at Tewantin, Qld. After all the rain we've had recently, it was very wet underfoot, but we found some great locations on their acreage to photograph in and around.

Their only grandson...He was such a cutie!

"Showing Now"

The last few weeks have been, as an understatement, WET! There has been SO MUCH rain, which has been just wonderful, but seeing the sun and its warmth come out today has been a sight for sore eyes. Being in the mood to get out of the house and take some photographs, I found the perfect subject. My garden.

I LOVE my garden. It makes me smile. It makes me happy. And grounded. It makes me feel "at home".

And today, these are a few of the things I found in my happy place :)

Something a little different.....South Burnett/Kingaroy Engagement photographer

After meeting with Terry and Jodie, I was SO SO excited to be photographing them, not only for their wedding, but also for their engagement photographs.

This is why!! :-D >>>>>>>

Terry is a pilot and together, both he and Jodie have a love of airplanes...especially their new baby!

We met up at an airstrip on the banks of the beautiful Somerset dam(SE Qld), and we couldn't ask for a more amazing location. The skies were wonderfully cloudy, and the backdrops of the dam and long wispy grass were the perfect compliment.

Can't wait for Terry and Jodie's wedding soon. I hope you enjoyed viewing these as much as I enjoyed photographing them!

A New Look

I've been wanting to get a bit of a new look for a little while, and working with the very talented Anna, we've come up with something that we feel is me - A warm, friendly, professional, creative and vintage/country feel!

So as you can see from the blog header, this is the "new" me!! :D

As a girl who looooves stationery, I'm looking forward to using it on business cards and letterheads etc...

I have some even MORE exciting news coming very soon. So keep an eye out. Details will be coming shortly!

I've updated MY WEBSITE too, so take a look and let me know what you think :)

Also a BIG thank you to a few of my friends, who took the time to give me their valued opinions - several times. I really appreciated it!

Cassie and Zach's Engagement photoshoot....South Burnett/Kingaroy Photographer

The day was a gloriously warm winter's morning. Cass and Zach came out to the farm to celebrate their recent engagement by getting a photoshoot. We made use of a heap of different locations...old sheds, long grass, a rustic cottage, hanging upside down in trees...

They came prepared with a couple of different co-ordinating outfits (and Cass's SHOES *sigh*!) to make it all the more special.

Ohhhh...and check out her ring. That's some SERIOUS BLING right there!! :-)

Here's a little look for now. Stay tuned...More on the way!!

Kids 'n School Holidays

For on a farm is never dull or boring. School holidays are spent exploring, playing, getting dirty...and the odd chore here and there.

Here are a few images from recent holidays...No other explanation needed ;-)

Portrait of a Lady.....Kingaroy/South Burnett Portrait Photographer..

I love portraits. Plain and simple portraits. Portraits that show who a person is...not by posing them, but letting their natural beauty shine through.

This was the case with Shuga.

Shuga has just turned a milestone age and wanted to celebrate with some beautiful portraits of herself.

Dressed to the nines with hair and makeup professionally applied by hairdresser and makeup artist extraordinaire, Jillian...we set about making this one to remember for Shuga.

Here is a little teaser...

Chelsea....Kingaroy/South Burnett Portrait Photographer

My cousin Chelsea. 14. Gorgeous. Inside...and out.

And soooooo photogenic.

Check these beautiful images of her. She is simply stunning!!

I hope you enjoy them much as I enjoyed capturing your beautiful self...


A personal post...

I don't know about you, but you know that feeling...the overwhelming feeling... of NEEDING to go out and just take photo's. Maybe it's a photographer thing I don't know, but I get it quite often. And anything or anyone that happens to be near me instantly becomes my target! ;-)

Its been a little while since I've posted any personal photo's. So I thought I'd share some images of my beautiful sister and her boy that happened to be around just when I needed them! :)

Both so very photogenic, they were the perfect models for me...

Shae & Josh - Engagement photoshoot

A recent engagement session with Shae and Josh saw us in the small country town of Wooroolin. We found some great spots for photo's...namely this great old shed that was begging to be used as a backdrop :-))

Looking forward to shooting your wedding in September Shae & Josh!! :)

Derek and Jodie's Wedding - South Burnett/Kingaroy Wedding Photographer

Derek and Jodie are such a fun couple. Their whole wedding, from getting ready through til the reception, was held on their Kumbia farm.

It was a perfect, but very warm Autumn day. The boys had their brand spanking new Massey Ferguson tractors as their wedding vehicles...whilst the girls had the airconditioned comfort of 4WD's.

The ceremony was held at an absolutely gorgeous spot down by the creek.

Here, in slideshow form is all the fun and fabulousness that was Derek and Jodie's country wedding....
