It’s always a treat to have the opportunity to work with inspiring people who are following their passion and pursuing a career they love. And what a pleasure it was to photograph the ever fabulous Lenka who wanted to create some lifestyle images for her soon-to-be-launching Raw Food website. We had a great time together making raw slices, enjoying some beautiful outdoor Sydney sunshine and generally having a pretty fabulous time together. Oh and of course we took a few photos along the way.

Yet again another moment where I have to pinch myself and count my lucky stars that I have my dream job as a natural light photographer. Did I mention how much I LOVE MY JOB !!

Special thanks to Lenka for making my job so easy and I can’t wait to see the new website as soon as it launches.

It’s always a treat to photograph gorgeous kiddies (not to mention 3 month old babies) and I really enjoyed photographing these little cuties a couple of weeks ago in Leichhardt. It was a stunning Sydney autumn morning when we met and I was greeted with the most beautiful smiles and faces. Always a big treat for a photographer. To top it off we had the most beautiful natural light which coupled with gorgeous children makes for the most perfect ingredients for children’s portraiture.

And the great thing about photographing babies is you can always sneak in a few little cuddles during photo sessions. Lucky me.

Jenny, it was so great to meet you and your gorgeous kiddies and I really hope you like your little sneak peek. I can’t wait to share the rest of the photos with you very seen. Best keep an eye on those emails.

I was lucky enough to be in Paris recently and had the wonderful opportunity to meet Marie-Pierre who is a life coach based in Paris. She wanted some Paris flavoured Personal Branding Portraits for her website and social media platform. Personally I can’t imagine anything better than taking photographs of an inspiring female entrepreneur around Paris.

What made it even better is Marie-Pierre wanted to have some photos taken at some of my favourite locations in Paris including my favourite bridge, Pont Alexander 3. It must be one of THE most beautiful bridges in the world. Isn’t it stunning!

Marie-Pierre and I had a great time together and once again I came away pinching myself to have my dream job as a photographer living between Sydney and Paris. Living le dream.

I have to confess that one of my favourite locations for family photography sessions in Paris, is the Louvre. It’s such a fun location as there are lots of space so the kids have an opportunity to explore the area and have some fun too. I also happen to LOVE the background as it shows off the beautiful Parisian architecture. So it’s no surprise that I’ve taken to nicknaming the Louvre as ‘my Parisian studio’.

One day in September I was lucky enough to meet Mary and her gorgeous family to do some family photos with a Parisian flavour. We had a great time together and I loved getting to know the children. Even more special is the dress worn by the youngest had been worn by her mother and grandmother when they were little. What a treat to capture the little one wearing such a special keepsake.

Mary, I had such fun with you and the family and your kids are just adorable!! Hope you like the photos.

One of the most challenging things as a headshot & personal branding photographer is getting people to relax in front of the camera. Speaking from my own personal experience, some people feel a little uncomfortable in front of the camera. However the more relaxed you are with the camera the more your personality comes through in the photos. If you feel a million dollars, you look a million dollars. Well that’s my philosophy anyway.

Even better than being relaxed in front of the camera is when people are in ‘the zone’. ‘The zone’ is often where the magic happens and your true personality shines through. And that’s exactly what I strive to do as a natural light portrait photographer – to capture your magic so the photographs exude the essence of your true self.

I photographed Dave in North Bondi, Sydney, a few weeks ago and boy was he in ‘the zone’ for his headshots. Perhaps it was the stripes or the new jacket but he was loving the camera and the camera was loving him. What I loved best about the photo session with Dave, is the photos truly really reflect him for who he is as a person. Someone who happens to be pretty awesome.
