2015 Photography – New Year, here we are

Beach, Palm trees Clifton Beach, Queensland

2015

Here we are. It has been a slow start to my working year (and in all honesty it’s not really going to fire up until the kids are back at school) but I did feel compelled to write a post and start the year off right. The last 6 months of 2014 were incredibly busy so writing, along with exercise, healthy eating and numerous other things, got prioritised down the to-do-list ….… right under “start 2015”!The Lagoon, Cairns

Dragon Fly, Cairns, QueenslandI have just come back from a fantastic 3 week holiday with family and friends in Cairns, Far North Queensland. It was hot. Really, really, hot and humid. The type of weather where there is no thought needed about what you are going to wear (as little as possible or bathers is the answer for those who have not done the tropics) and makeup is a ridiculous concept (you are either perspiring or swimming). Weather that by the time you have finished l yourself off after a shower you have worked up a sweat. For me, this sweaty, fragrant, beautiful, environment brings a certain relaxation that you can’t find anywhere else. A defined lowering of my care factor about fashion, hair … time, and a necessity to just go with what the day brings.Green Island, Queensland - snorkelling It’s too damn hot – just bring me a cold beer or an icy wine, happy swimming kids and I’m all good. A cheese platter doesn’t go astray either.

I also got to hang with my brother who has lived in Cairns now longer than he didn’t . He’s an ex chef that given a kitchen and some ingredients can seem to make wine out of water. Let’s just say we ate well and we were grateful for the shared job of providing for the large tribe that was there most days and his expertise with catering for numbers. Being a local he also provided us with some truly memorable experiences and places we would never have found on our own. My kids fished in the Daintree, we resorted it in Port Douglas, played with butterflies in Kuranda and swam in a crater lake. We snorkelled with turtles and played at some of the most beautiful waterfalls.Kuranda, Butterfly House, Far North Queensland

At risk of sounding like an ad for FNQ tourism it is an absolute jewel of a place. If you have not been get ye there ASAP.

Now that I have returned and washed away the frizzy hair, layers of sunscreen and perspiration I feel quite refreshed and ready to hit 2015. I am feeling very excited about what this year will bring. My youngest is starting school (don’t ask me about that: I warn you, I will cry). I’m not ready to face that reality and I will miss her at home more than I can say but I also know that it opens up opportunities to explore my photography and do more of what I love. I would really like to hear about theFishing, Queensland types of sessions you would like so Facebook me, comment below, email me. I’m so looking forward to getting creative with this year’s sessions.

I hope you have all had a good Xmas and managed to find some pockets of relaxation, and quality time with family and friends. I have a very good feeling about this year so let get into it.

Adelaide Teen Portrait Photography – Model Reps 2014

Here is my next feature model Alexandra. She has such an amazing quality about her. One minute she looks 25 and then she brings out her gorgeous smile and is a playful teen. In my eldest daughter’s words “she is so pretty”.

I just can’t tell you how much I loved photographing these girls. Obviously they are all stunning on the outside but such lovely fun beautiful girls through to their core. I tell you it gives me hope for our future, and makes me so grateful that I get to do this and meet such great people.
