Beach Family Portraits: Sunset at Wanda Beach


  About two years ago I photographed some beach family portraits for Rebecca’s sister at Coogee Beach. This post, however, is about Rebecca’s family, down at Wanda Beach near Cronulla. We met late in the day on what was a bit of a sketchy, cloudy day. I had my doubts that we’d even go ahead due to the weather, but it finally came good for their beach family portrait session, and we got some amazing light for the shoot. The first image above is Rebecca’s Read More

Family Portraits: Centennial Park with crazy kids


  A few years back we first met Nita and Damien’s family, and shot some great family portraits at Coogee Beach with their son when he was about a year old. I recently had the chance to catch up with them at Centennial Park for some updated family portraits with their one-year-old daughter! I could honestly say this was one of my most fun shoots in ages. Nita and Damien have such a fantastic bent sense of humour, that we all get along brilliantly. I actually had to stop Read More

Family Portraits: Sporty Kids at Centennial Park


Liz wanted her family portraits to be taken in Centennial Park. I met her for the first time when I turned up to meet her at the start of the shoot, which is what usually happens. We often speak once or twice with each family before the shoot, but the first in-person meeting is at the shoot. Liz’s kids each brought their own favourite sporting gear – a cricket bat, and a soccer ball – which is pretty unusual for my family portraits, although cool Read More

Updated Family Portraits at Centennial Park


A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, I met with Michelle and her family for some family portraits at Coogee Beach. Her kids were going into Kindergarten and Year 4 at school, and the shoot was great fun. Michelle and I kept in touch on and off over the years, even training at the same gym in Randwick for a while. While unfortunately Michelle’s first marriage didn’t work out, fast forward a few years, and she is now uttery blissed out and happy again with a Read More

Pregnancy Portraits: Strength and Courage


A few months back I met an amazing woman, who wanted me to take some pregnancy portraits of her. She was in her third trimester, but explained that she wanted to have the shoot done around a month earlier than I normally suggest. We met around the 32 week-mark, instead of the usual 36-37 weeks. During the conversation, my client explained that she was being treated for breast cancer as well as being pregnant. I captured a range of beautiful pregnancy portraits for her, celebrating this time in her Read More

Family Portraits: When the kids are moving out…


I first spoke with Sarah over the phone about wanting to do some family portraits with her grown-up kids. It was about two weeks before Xmas and Sarah explained that her daughter was due to fly out to Florida, USA for a year of study exchange in about 3 weeks. Sarah was worried that we wouldn’t be able to fit anything in, or that it wouldn’t work for her son, who had already moved out of home, and had a busy work and social life. The conversation started really Read More

Beach Family Photos at Shelly Beach Manly


I’m very fortunate that I get to shoot beach family photos for a lot of my clients. I feel most at home, most myself, when I am on the beach – working or not. For my clients, it seems that if they choose to have beach family photos then we’ll instantly have lots in common, and the shoot will be lots of fun for all of us. (Not that shoots aren’t fun in other locations, but I just especially love being by the beach!) I went Read More

Cloudy With A Chance of Family Portraits


  Asako and her family had driven from Avalon, up at the northern end of Sydney’s Northern Beaches, to Bronte – about an hour’s drive away in the Eastern Suburbs – for their family portraits. I was a bit worried about the weather, and if we’d get rained out or not, given how far Asako had driven to see me! I was so humbled that they’d driven so far to have me photograph their family, that I was determined to make it work, one way Read More

Family Portraits at Sydney Park


For some reason, clouds followed me when I shot these family portraits at Sydney Park with Nicole and Jason. I photographed their wedding back in 2009, they’ve since added two lovely boys to their family. What’s even more unusual is that the clouds followed us on their wedding day too – we only narrowly escaped rain at the ceremony, snuck out for some beautiful sunshine at Observatory Hill for some location shots, before getting rained in at the reception! The good news is that the rain held Read More
