Cake Smash and 1st birthday bubbles

As a Geelong baby photographer, I enjoy capturing the wonderment in a child’s expression as they experience new things.  In this cake smash and birthday session with Helayna, we did bubbles, balloons, toys and a cake smash at the end to capture her one year milestone.  It was so much fun to see all of her curious and happy expressions. Helayna’s first birthday was memorised with a quick pre-cake portrait

Geelong Product Photography – Clothing

Every now and then we are asked to photograph products that make us ask “why hasn’t someone thought of this before now”?  And so it was when Christine DeGraaf asked us to shoot her new range of Adaptive Clothing for her company G.O. Clothing.  This highly functional range allows aged care patients, people with temporary or permanent disabilities or those rehabilitating from an injury to dress easily

Bronson Macklinshaw – Man from Snowy River 2015

I was chatting with another photographer on Saturday morning.  He had his list of riders out and had put an asterisk beside those he was watching.  I told him that my money was on either Bronson Macklinshaw or David Mitchell.  Neither rider had rated on this other fellows sheet and he told me I was only a wedding photographer and had no idea.   I wish I had put $50.00 on it because in the final wash up both Bronson a
