I've always loved seeing what other people shoot with and use as gear. It's even more interesting the different results everyone can create from using the exact same products. Here's a quick list of everything I have in my camera bag. Camera, lenses, accessories and why I love using these specific items.
This I have been struggling with for the past 2 years. My journey as a photographer began because of my children - like many other photographers. I studied how to use my gear, learned how to find the light, practiced posing, composition, connection, styling and grew as a capable photographer. People began asking me to shoot their families and children, and suddenly I was a photographer charging money. however, somewhere along this road I got lost - I lost my passion and determination - I was no longer photographing my children - but other peoples children.
There are some families and children that simply climb into your heart. Knowing this baby girl from when she was in her mommies tummy is beautiful. I have had the honor and privilege to photograph Robin throughout her journey with her baby. Keeping things simple in a local location we were able to creative beautiful family memories for her. She will look back on these images with love and adoration for her parents.
I look forward to out next shoot together.
Capturing and creating magical moments for families and memories for children is one of the greatest gifts we can offer as photographers. As a child and family portrait photographer, it is always special when I get to spend time with families and watch their children grow up.
I first met Pheobe at her fresh 48 and newborn session 5 months ago...she has grown so much and being at the powerhouse in Brisbane for the afternoon was a real treat!

In June we were sent these incredibly beautiful statement earrings all the way from London. Oh my goodness, I can't believe how beautiful and perfect they are.
As seen in British Vogue (yes you read that correctly ), everything from the packaging to the quality and design is completely gorgeous. I love beautiful statement pieces like these earrings, I can't wait to get my hands on more of the range. Here are some beautiful words from the founder, Evelina
" I launched my brand, Misia Mae, in April 2017 with Graphic No 1 collection, which received warm welcome by customers and was noticed by British Vogue, Tatler, Your Coffee Break, and House of Coco.
The name of the brand comes after the most important women in my family, my daughter, my Mum, and my sister. The desire to design artifacts comes from deep within, always has been there, but only recently, I’ve found myself in a good place to be able to follow the dream. My designs are inspired by visual arts and urban living. I love playing with contrasts and unusual materials, like Lucite, exploring tradition for a modern proposition, to create classic, yet contemporary looks. I wanted to create a brand that would offer quality fashion accessories, which are fun and elegant for women of all ages, which make women feel pretty and fabulous, fashion accessories for extraordinary women."

Most people already know that I have a love and fascination for fine art portraits. Timeless images of our legacy - our children. This is by far my favorite type of session. I wish I could create images or every child in the world like this - images that represent their beauty in a simple, clean an classic and timeless way.
I have images of when I was young and it is the portraits that I treasure the most. It is the simple portrait is somehow immortal - this is what I long to create for people.....
