Ollie keeping an eye on us!

We were photographing his neighbour “Scrappy” at the time, I turned around to see this…

Ollie wanted to join in the fun!…… soon after he did have his turn in the limelight….

but this is one of my all time favourites those big chocolate paws and soulful eye.

I was photographing a Horse this day and the resident farmer appeared with his pet python…

What a great subject hey!  He was wearing his usual farm work clothes, self accessorised with beard plaits and his Sheriff badge,

he also just happened to have the fabulous old truck nearby….

so glad he obliged for the photo!

3 Little Indians

We had loads of fun photographing these 3 siblings,

the oldest sister knew we had the feathered head dresses and was desperate to wear them!

Right at the end we took this photo and it is a magnificent large Canvas on their wall.

The memory of the day makes me smile.

“Aura” – One of the sweetest dogs ever!

“Aura” is Tracy’s housemates dog, and one of the sweetest dogs ever!

What’s not to love about that gorgeous ball of white fluff!

On her Best Friends session, she was on her usual best behaviour, saying a friendly hello to every other dog on the park,

just at the end as we were walking back to the cars these clouds came over….awesome!

Just love the juxtaposition of Aura’s soft white fur with the jagged rocks and the storm brewing clouds…

not to mention her proud stance and “I’m keeping an eye on you look”!

Treasured Memories of a Loved One

One of my clients of over 10 years has always loved a portrait I took of my Grandmother to celebrate her 100th Birthday,

incorporating some history of her life as well as a recent portrait.

This portrait is made up of 9 different images,

my clients Grandmother, sipping tea from her favourite red cup,

her mothers vase, the home she grew up in, the street sign of where she lived,

her wedding photo, her siblings in a photo of 80+ years ago,

her wonderful hands that have touched so many lives in a beautiful way over the years.

It is beautifully framed in my clients library and Grandma has her own copy to enjoy.


Butter wouldn’t even melt in my mouth!

We had this canvas on the easel in our Studio before our client collected it,

it was incredible how many adults and children outstretched their hands to pat him…

the portrait is so life-like, such a beautiful puppy!!

He has grown quite a bit since we took this!!

Unconditional Love

We were photographing Dudley for our Best Friends, Pets and their People book, Dudley is an Assistance dog. On lead he was on duty, off lead he bounded around like a puppy, playful and energetic for his 11 years. I didn’t even realise I had taken this image until later, it stopped my heart when I saw it……it sums up Dudley, no matter what he is doing, that look of intensity, alertness, responsibility and loyal readiness to be by his owners side is written all over his handsome face.
