Why?

Why did I become a photographer?

The easy answer is that it comes naturally to me. For the first time in my life I am able to do something that I am good at, enjoy and it just flows.

But that harder answer, the one that really hurts because it means the most is because of a day in January 2014. This was a day when I didn’t seize the moment and I didn’t take the photo, that’s the day that sticks to me like tar.

Transcribing Life || February 2019

This post is probably a little selfish in that it’s mostly about me, about my February but the truth is that a piece of me is in all the photos I take, even the ones of you and in that sense I guess it’s important you get a feel for my story as well.

Here’s what February looked like in my personal space.

FAQ #3 || Do you travel?

I am located a long way from very little and even further from something, so in short … YES, I travel!
My travel dates are posted on my website and as soon as I know … you will too. I do charge a travel fee however, if you catch me while I am in your area then your session will be FREE from those extra fees.

Mia + Steve || An Intimate Townsville Couple

I was lucky enough to find Mia + Steve, in Townsville, after they responded to a model call I put out. They were exactly what I was looking for to create the vision I had, this session is that vision come to life.

Right from the start I fell in love with this quaint West End home, the snug rooms, warmed by the wooden floors, the neutral panelled walls and the windows which illuminated it all just perfectly.

FAQ #2 || Where are you located?

I get asked all the time, where are you from? I live on a cattle property in North Western Queensland, Gilberton Station, it is 460km North West of Townsville or 540km South West of Cairns. Our back yard is 35 600 hectares and is home to roughly 2000 head of cattle along with countless native wildlife. I live on the property with my husband and two tiny (or not quite so tiny anymore) ferals, as well has his parents, sister and her fiancé.

Intimately Yours || Royes' || North Queensland Photographer

I have a soft spot for mother/daughter relationships, probably because I spent so much time with my Mum growing up.  They are a mix of love and turmoil, calm one minute and stormy the next.  It is a powerful and beautiful thing when all the girls have is each other but it is also a relationship that is often filled with struggle.

Keough's || North Queensland Lifestyle Photographer

I am fortunate enough that I get invited to enjoy many moments, milestones and ordinary (but no less special) days with my families.  I get to experience different family dynamics, love and personalities.  At the end of all my sessions I am told 'thank you' but what no one really understands is just how much I gain from each session.
