I have known this family for a number of years now, seen them at social gatherings and the kid's school events, however, as well as I thought I knew them, last Saturday I was invited into their home to witness them in their own environment. And what a pleasure it was.
However, despite the heat and the (understandably) cranky baby, this family made magic. They are a young family with limitless devotion for each other. They have a lifetime together and I know that as this tribe grows, maybe in numbers or maybe in affection, they will be surrounded by all that they need.
One thing is for certain we will never escape the onslaught of a Northern summer and nor would we want to. It is in us, it is how we have grown up, it runs deep. But that doesn't mean we aren't going to bitch about it every year, after all it is HOT!
We met a top Mount Stuart, over looking Townsville. I picked this location for the view, the bushland and the wind. I was not dissapointed. The session flowed, the couple were gorgeous and everything fell into perfect alignment. Check out it out for yourself:
Meer words hardly seem enough but to all those I photographed in 2017 - thank you, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. You will never know how much your support and moving reviews mean to me, your trust in my vision is beyond words.
This is a brief collection of my favourite personal images from 2017. ... Thank you for your love and support I am very honored but I am also very proud of the transformation I can see in my work over the past twelve months. I am eagerly anticipating 2018 and all the growth it will bring.
This is a HUGE overshare and I'm not in the least bit sorry - this is what a full session with me is like. There is movement and variety. There is fun and games. There is love and family. There is all the good stuff and all the things that are important.
This is my CM Pro application. This is my best ... for now.
Our job isn't to correct that, but to nurture it, to preserve it, and perhaps even to re-learn it.
I remember my first trip overseas so clearly. I went to Thailand. ... It was the trip of a lifetime. It was over 20 year ago and I can still hear the sounds and breath in the smells. I may have forgotten many things in my life, and there will be many more I am yet to forget, but that's not one for them.
