Unposed baby photography – a moment in bed

Sometimes, it's the quiet moments that get you the most. The moments between one child and another, in the most unstyled, unfashionable, uncontrived of places. Sometimes it's these moments that speak to the human experience and the force of relationships, between even the littlest members of our families. Sometimes it's a tiny hand, a giggling raspberry blown on a soft tummy, the quiet of an afternoon rest, the sweetness of a little smile, the clasping of hands which shows the strongest of bonds. Sometimes it's those things I love the most about documentary photography. The way it has the ability to

Unposed wedding photography – Kate and Seb in the Hunter Valley

I consider myself the luckiest girl in the world that I get to photograph the wedding of interesting people. It really is a gift - they are trusting you with the documentation of one of the most special days of their lives, and I'm especially lucky because the people I get to photograph are always special, fascinating specimens of humankind. They're always a bit different, a bit kooky, a bit more sparkly than the rest of us regular joes. And this wedding was black tie, too, which made it that extra bit unusual. Kate and Sebastian were married at the Sisters

Unposed family photography Hunter Valley – jacaranda mini sessions

I do a lot of work in the Hunter Valley, and while I'd love to boast that it's just because I'm in high demand up there, the truth is that it is one of my favourite NSW locations, ever. The landscape is stunning, the people are wonderful, the children are laid-back and cute as buttons, and the weather is always phenomenal. Even on a windy, overcast spring day, there's something special about the mood up there. It just breathes life. Alison and Bridget and their families are wonderful loyal clients of mine, and to date I have captured their babies

Family documentary shoot – Robbie on the farm

This is the third time I have photographed little Robbie and his family - I photographed his amazing mother Bridget while she was pregnant, being loved by her gorgeous horses (you can see it here), and then I photographed Robbie and his parents when he was only a few weeks old (you can see it here!). Horses are a running theme with Bridget's shoots! So when I was called back to photograph Robbie again at fifteen months, in an entirely documentary family photography session, I was so happy. The way I shoot is loose, and relaxed, and pretty much the opposite of in-your-face. Here I

Family shoot – Rory in Scone

Shooting in the Hunter Valley area of New South Wales has always been a serious perk of my job - I love the scenery, the people, the horses, the relaxed atmosphere - I love pretty much everything about it. (You can see a previous shoot of a Scone maternity and newborns here and here!) I photographed young Rory and his lovely parents when he was a wrinkly little newborn, and I was so honoured to be asked to come to document him at five months old. Family documentary photography has become my obsession and my passion, and I just can't do anything photographically that
