As the world went into isolation in early 2020, photographers from all over the globe documented their experiences through pictures. I however, did not. I was a bit bummed that I hadn’t thought to. But little did I know I would get another chance with a second lockdown from July – November, here in Melbourne, Victoria. Now that we’re on our way out, with … Read More Photo Series – Life in ISO
2016 was a big one for us, with the purchase of our first home in April and the arrival of our second little cherub, Toby! So understandably I was a little slow on the creative side, but I did manage to have a fairly productive year, considering. I completed four watercolour artworks including two illustrations ‘Caleb Clarke’ and a remake of ‘Darcy Plum’. (the … Read More 2016 A Year in Review

Firstly I should just be clear that I’m not exactly a famous photographer, in fact I’m the complete opposite.. not famous. I haven’t taken any lessons or completed any courses, I’m all self taught. However, I’m not that bad.. or at least you can judge for yourself. If you like what you see then please read on.. I want to share with you … Read More Portrait Photography – My Top 5 Tips

On the 2nd of July 2013, a friend of mine posted a comment on facebook that said she was going to write a poem everyday for a whole month. It got me thinking. I have read about photographers who have attempted the 365 photography project, where they take a photo a day for a whole year. So I challenged my friend to stretch her goal to … Read More 365 Project Completed
A couple of weeks ago I was honored to be the main photographer for a very special event.. a beautiful garden wedding! I have photographed friend’s weddings before, as a guest, but this time my sole purpose of being there was to capture those precious moments. Thankfully, the bride to be was so lovely and easy going that I didn’t have any fears leading … Read More Happily ever after..
When I was expecting, I was given a belly cast kit. Now obviously I love to be creative and I especially love to try new things, and making a belly cast was certainly something I hadn’t done before. Naturally I began to research ideas on the internet where I found many beautiful pieces. But to be completely honest, the idea of having a life … Read More ‘Pod’ – My Belly Cast Creation
29 days ago I started the 365 project, taking a photo every day for a year. I wrote a post about it here and you can view the photos I’ve taken so far, here. It has proven to be a bit trickier than I first thought, coming up with a different idea for each day and trying to have an aesthetically pleasing result. So far … Read More 29 days down, 336 to go..
Today is day 4 of my 365 photography challenge and I created this photo: As you can see I’ve turned the bokeh (out of focus light) into stars! It’s a neat little trick I learned a while ago.. I think I need a bit more practice (I’ve seen some wicked photos using this technique) but this aint too bad. Anyway, I took a couple … Read More Seeing Stars – Bokeh
So.. I have decided to finally take on the 365 photography challenge! I’ve always wanted to give it a go but couldn’t quite commit myself to it. The challenge is to take a photo every day for an entire year.. which when you think about it really isn’t as easy as it first sounds. My main concern is actually remembering to do it every … Read More 365 Photography Challenge

The very talented Joseph and Donny Ha Corsentino are the amazing artists behind ‘Time of the Faeries,’ which is the original source of inspiration for my own ‘Faery Photos’. (And to my mum’s horror, my tattoo!) Geez, it’s only a tiny one mum! Hehe.. anyways, Time of the Faeries is a picture book about the faeries, angels and darklings returning to earth. It is, of course, full of amazing photographs … Read More Time of the Faeries
I can’t remember exactly how I discovered the beautiful work of Kirsty Mitchell, but I’m so glad I did. Her photography is just breathtaking, especially her ‘Wonderland’ series.

You can view Kirsty’s website here: http://www.kirstymitchellphotography.com and make sure you read the diary posts to give … Read More I heart Kirsty Mitchell Photography
