A walk in the woods

I’d love to share some images from a fashion editorial I photographed for my portfolio over the weekend. I had the pleasure of shooting with two of my photography buddies, Leanne and Peta and we had an absolute ball.

Many thanks to our fantastic makeup artist, Donna Sullivan and our super-creative stylist Jamie Louise from Wardrobe Confidential for helping our vision come to life. Also thank you to Lucinda Villegas from Tamblyn Models, who looked absolutely beautiful and was such a sweetie.

The shoot turned out so well  - I think it was definitely a case of girl power!!

Look 1:  Top, Pritty Little Birdie by Amy Turner; Skirt – Stylist’s own; Shoes – Dragonberry Stride; Headpiece – Stylist’s own.

Toowoomba engagement session: Nicky and Simon

As with any photographer, I’m like a kid in a toy store when I get to shoot something completely new.

Nicky and Simon’s  engagement shoot over the weekend was definitely out of the ordinary. I was completely surprised when Simon whipped out his guitar and started serenading his lovely fiancee.  Seriously, how sweet is that?  I think everybody passing by in Queens Park were slightly (very) jealous!

It was a complete joy photographing them and I think you can tell by the photographs that these two are madly in love!
