NSW Central Coast Family Photographer – Good morning Sunshine

For a long time now I’ve wanted to photograph a sunrise session. I had the perfect location in mind and knowing one of my best friends is a morning person like myself, I decided to start organising it. Her two girls were so excited about an early morning adventure and we had the best morning together looking for whales and exploring the early Spring wildflowers. This would have to be up there with my favourite family sessions I’ve ever photographed. I hope you like the photos as much as I do.



NSW Central Coast Photographer – Project 365 – July

I’m surprised at how fast this year has gone. I’ve had good days and bad trying to keep up with my 365 Project. Some days it’s hard to find inspiration, other days it comes easy but it’s all worth it when I get to look back on what I’ve captured. Even the not so great photos still have meaning. Here is our July in images.


NSW Central Coast Photographer – Finding the Beauty in Ordinary

Last weekend I attended a 3 day photography workshop called The Baby Summit. I was nervous about being away from my family and being in the presence of so many photographers. What I didn’t expect was how the sessions I went to would change me personally. To hear photographers who I have followed and admired speak and tell me that I am capable of following my dream and I can succeed was so awesome. I listened to Sue Bryce talk about blocks and I swear she was talking to me directly. I have given every single one of those excuses in the past. Now that I am home, I am completely inspired and excited about photography again. I can’t wait to try new things, break some mind barriers and do what I love.

A couple of things really stood out for me and the image below is thanks to two of the speakers at the Summit. Kristen Cook said in her talk – ‘find the beauty in ordinary’. If you ever get the chance to listen to Kristen speak, you should – she has an incredible way with words and changed every single person in that room that day. The other person was Anya Ponti who encouraged everyone to try shooting wide open at f1.8. Watching Anya’s demonstration class was so inspiring for me. She has a similar style to me and she was so open and honest with any questions we had for her.

Another speaker who really gave me something on a personal level was Rachel Vanoven. Her sense of humour, her positive attitude and always smiling face made me take a long hard look at myself and realise I needed things to change and fast!

So here’s to finding a new me – confident, happy, excited, motivated, encouraging and inspired.


NSW Central Coast Photographer – Mandarin Farm

Last weekend we decided to drive out to Wisemans Ferry and spend a few hours picking fruit on a mandarin farm. We had a lovely sunny day with some good friends of ours and came home with more mandarins than we know what to do with. Thankfully we all love them and it shouldn’t take too long to eat the 10 kg we picked. It’s such a great experience to visit a farm where you can pick your own fruit, great for the kids to learn about where their fruit comes from and so much more fun than buying it at your local store. If you get the chance, you should give it a try.
