a love of autumn

Autumn gets me every year.

It’s like my eyes just can’t soak it in enough.

So much wonderful colour!

I love how deciduous leaves die so gracefully.

They bask in the warm Autumn sun, glowing in a glorious final display of beauty and then peacefully drift to the ground on a breath of cool, almost Winter air.

What a way to go.

a little hope for 2015

Between you and I, 2014 was kind of a strange year for me.

I had to take a little break from shooting because my body needed some recovery. You see as it turns out, having babies didn’t leave me as unscathed as I would have hoped. Nothing serious friends, just a slightly annoying and frustrating bump in the road.

So, I spent a lot of time turning away work and thinking hard about my photography and my passion for capturing love, people, beauty and authenticity.

Sometimes parts of me truly ache with longing when I see beautiful moments.

I just want to capture them forever, and then give them back to those people who were so blessed to be a part of something so special…and so fleeting.

I know that might sound a little over emotional but it’s the truth.

Somehow something along the way has lead me back to especially seeing how important this is with families.

I think mostly because I know how much the pictures I take of my children and husband mean to me.

And let me tell you it’s not always the ‘perfect’ ones that are the most treasured, but most often the ones caught within the chaos or sameness of our everyday.

So now I’m hoping that this year I can do that for you too.

Capture a little bit of your life as it is just now.

Whether it be with your own little family, or with someone you love, or even just you.

I’d would really love to help you see the beauty in your everyday.

So with that, here are some of the lovely people I was fortunate enough to photograph in the later months of 2014.

And if you like, at the end of this post, you will see a link that will direct you to all the information you need regarding my portrait sessions. So please click on that and browse away.

Perhaps I’ll hear from you soon.

Beck - Beautiful leese! We’d love to book you in sometime later in year after number 2 arrives xox

Charles&Shea

Charles and Shea, two beautiful soul mates with a totally adorable little boy.

Their wedding was just divine.

Set on a private property amongst the rolling hills of Cygnet. It was relaxed, beautiful, full of love and gorgeous in every way.

I was completely smitten with Shea’s love for vintage treasures, and adored her sense of style and artistic flair.

Everything about this day just made me happy.

Excepting perhaps the scorching, hot sun (that was a killer!)….but then when it set, I was giddy once more!

Charles and Shea, thank you for being so wonderfully easygoing, sincere and kind. It was such a privilege to be a part of your gorgeous celebration.

Brigitte - Stunning photos! You are so talented. What a fun wedding to capture…

Tim&Penelope

Pen and Tim set my creative heart a flutter upon their very first email.

A beautiful relaxed wedding, set amidst the rocky shoreline and sparkling sea of the North West Coast.

These two stunning people are just so sincere and lovely. I felt so honoured to be a part of their day.

Their wedding story begins with a ‘first look’.

Pen fought back tears as she saw her handsome ‘husband to be’ for the first time. It was so happy and heart warming.

This whole wedding just had me smiling.

Great people, great vibe and all the sweet little details that I knew Pen had poured her heart into. Not forgetting her gorgeous head piece that was created by her Milliner Mother.

Everything just came together perfectly.

Thank you so much Pen and Tim, you guys have been amazing from start to finish!

Penelope McNamara - Thank you Lisa! We feel so honoured to have made your blog :) You made our day that little bit extra special! A million times, thank you x

The welcome warmth of Summer

Oh Tasmanian Summer why must you be so fickle?

You warm us up so we’re giddy with sun-kissed bliss, and then you whip out a cold front that sends us spiralling into confusion.

Today has been cold.

So cold that the heater is on.

Yes. You read that correctly.

So, I am posting these Summery images to remind myself that Summer does exist.

No doubt it will be back again next week.

And in the meantime, I’ll just rock back and forth in the corner, with my socks on, wrapped in a blanket, sipping hot chocolate.
