NSW Central Coast Photographer – Waratah Season

I am so happy that Winter is over and the days are warming up. The Spring flowers are blooming, the water will be warming up soon. I love this time of year and am so excited for the Summer months to come. Early September sees our local Waratah patch full of these amazing red flowers. I took a walk up there last week to see how they were going and they certainly didn’t disappoint.

NSW Central Coast Photographer – Project 365 – August

The last month of Winter was kind to us and I’m very much looking forward to Spring and Summer and hitting the beach more often with the family. Here are my images from August. I honestly didn’t know if I’d make it to the end of a 365 project this year but with 8 months completed, I think I can see the end now.


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.
