Claire and Cameron

When my niece asked me to photograph her wedding, I said yes. When she said it was going to be styled vintage shabby chic, I said yes, yes, YES!!!! I have to say I’m a bit partial to anything vintage.  This wedding was held up at the beautiful Solothurn Rural Resort at Reesville, just outside Maleny, Queensland. A stunning 330 acre property complete with farm animals!  It was picturesque and just perfect. I was in my photographic element! So many beautiful spots to take photos. I hope you enjoy looking through this album as much as I loved making it.

A Family of Pure Love

Meet the Stainwalds. This family is related to my family and I have to say I’ve been busting to photograph this lot for some time now. I squealed with delight when I was contacted about doing a shoot and then my brain exploded with ideas. I was blessed to be able to collaborate with the mum on ideas because she’s one creative lady! As soon as she mentioned doing some vintage style shots I just about keeled over with glee. Vintage, you say? I’m there! She spent weeks gathering their outfits and working out props and locations and boy did it work well! My job was made easy. Everyone was so receptive to the concept and worked the camera well. I hope you all enjoy browsing through these images of this beautiful, loving family. I can now exhale with complete satisfaction and creative joy.
