Our great friends Sal and Josh are expecting a small version. I am thrilled. Sal tried so many tricks to get out of having a baby; including a knee operation, a bone infection, and an emergency evacuation to a hospital down south to avoid a leg amputation, and more antibiotics than one human body should have to swallow. That's some serious stalling tactics. I am looking forward to one more visit of her in hospital though. I am hedging my bets on 7 March. It's the birthday of Josh, her husband and the father - for all records - and also my sister. Thats some beautiful energy right there. Good luck my gorgeous friend. It's easy for me to be excited when I don't have a birth to endure between now and meeting the babe. xxx
Last month I had the pleasure of being invited to document a few hours in the life of this gorgeous family. Little James took me on a tour of the house pointing out his favourite things and activities. I predict he will become a future air guitar world champion, sprinter, gardener, or hat collector. By the end of the evening I felt like I was farewelling a little mate. I was pretty stoked to get a note from Kylie the following day to let me know he was asking about me. Ha ha. Meanwhile my daughters wanted a running commentary of every photo I edited. Luckily Darwin is small so we will inevitably cross paths in future. A beautiful family.
I was eagerly waiting the news of this babe’s arrival, as I was hoping to photograph her birth… At that point, we didn't know she was a she. But she stayed put until I was safely in another state before arriving in the world. I am not about to hold that against her.
Little Coco was 7 days old when I got to meet her; so tiny and peaceful, with the most gorgeous little lips I have ever seen on a baby.
I was feeling clucky before I walked in the door, so it's nothing short of a miracle that I didn't kidnap her.
The wedding of Kira Parker to Sam Danvers. August 2016. Darwin.
Christine asked me to be her wedding photographer before I realised I wanted to be one. They got married on their block at Bees Creek, and the river bed in these photos is their backyard - an absolutely magic spot.
Everything was handcrafted with love by these two, their family and friends; including a multi tiered cake stand that the groom whipped up that morning, and vats of homemade rum. We headed off to take the bridal shots on a Rhino and quad, later the bride and groom entered the reception on a ride on mower. Territory class. There was an incredible bonfire to keep the guests from hypothermia, as the freezing Dry Season night set in, 11.c and plummeting when I left. Between the fire and the rum, I don't think any of the guests noticed. These two are high school sweet hearts and this shindig was ten years (or more) in the making. You could definitely feel the love. I love weddings...
