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.






These two are totally adorable.

Which as you will see, is kind of stating the obvious.

They are so full of spirited young love and eager excitement for their upcoming wedding.

Our afternoon was gifted with warm sunlight, cool ocean and an abundance of laughter.

Shaun and Tiana, thank you so much for letting me capture some little pieces of your splendid affection!

I truly hope your future together is amazing.





This is Eliana.

She’s been dancing since she was two and now she’s thirteen.

As far as I’m concerned, she’s pretty amazing. You should see her move. Honestly, this girl has skills.

I’ve always had a little bit of an obsession with dancers.

I was totally that little girl who really wanted to be a ballerina. I have very clear memories of dancing around our lounge room as a child, my Dad’s classical music collection playing loudly over the stereo.

There’s just something about the movement, grace and beauty that dancers possess.

It’s a little bit magical.

Eliana was so kind to say ‘yes’, when I asked if I could photograph her.

She was also a total delight to photograph, I found it very hard to put my camera away!

Thank you so much Eli and Andrea too (that’s Eliana’s mum). She came along to the session and was a wonderful help carrying bags, and assisting with wardrobe changes!

I hope you enjoy these images of this talented young lady.






My brother Joel, married the gorgeous Liza, on a beautiful Queensland day in September.

It was such a wonderful wedding! And all the more wonderful because it was full of people I love dearly.

So many relatives I hadn’t seen in such a long time. It was very hard not to get distracted on the job!

This day was just so much fun and so full of happiness.

And I felt so blessed that I was able to capture the absolute love my brother has for his new wife.

The joy in them both was totally contagious.

Kelder Architects

I have three older brothers, and guess what? They’re all Architects. I know. Crazy!

Two of them are twins (Joel and Wes ), and they work together in Brisbane, under the name ‘Kelder Architects‘.

Recently, while we were in the neighbourhood, I made a little visit to their awesome office space and took some pictures.

These boys are really gifted, and I’m not just saying that cause we’re related. It’s simply the truth.

So if you need some Architecture, look them up.
