lori mackenzie

I would have to say that a large portion of my heart is with shooting fashion lifestyle. This came about back in 2013 when chief editor of Wake Magazine - Marlon, approached me to be a contributor to the miss page of the magazine. Marlon had been following my photography journey through facebook over the past year and had taken a fancy to my "girl next door, subtle yet sexy style" of capturing my subject. And so it came that i had achieved my first big career goal as a professional photographer. Nearly six years on and multiple editorial features later, i have found myself as the contributing miss page photographer for 4 international wakeboarding magazines.

The stunning Lori and I met through instagram, nearly three ago now - wow time flies when your having fun! Lori is a well know international model, with a massive social media following, who is currently signed with Vivien's Model Management in Brisbane. Completely professional, and a total bombshell, Lori worked the camera with confidence and ease and has been featured in Wake Magazine, Union Wakeboarder and Alliance Wake Magazine.

terry + tracey

Tracey and Terry were married in New Zealand. The day was perfect but missing one thing... Terry's other love, a canary yellow vintage Mazda station wagon. Knowing how much it would mean to Terry to have wedding photos with both of his loves, a guest contacted me for a voucher to give to Terry & Tracey as a wedding gift.. On returning to Australia Terry & Tracey once again frocked up wedding style and drove over an hour with a broken clutch to our chosen location. On this particular spring afternoon the weather was warm and balmy and mother nature really turned on a magical sunset.

chayse + bailey

When Mum Laura approached me to do a session of her boys she said that she wanted something different and her hope was to receive images which captured natural candid moments of her boys at play. We met in an urban space at 4pm on a sunny spring afternoon and with very little encouragement the boys were soon playing hard and having a fun afternoon on their scooters and skateboards. We shared lots of giggles and high fives and the kids loved showing me their mad skills.

scarlett + scotia

The Price family came to my home studio in October 2018 with 6 week old daughter Scarlett and fur baby Scotia. We immediately hit it off and were all so excited to get Scotia invloved in their newborn session.

Kyla and Paul were married in Mexico a few years ago and had recently relocated from Melbourne to the Gold Coast back in January after Paul was appointed the National Coach for Squash Australia for the Commonwealth Games in March. Prior to the big move they created and operated Inspired Peak Performance Squash in Fitzroy where Paul was the MCC squash coach and coached squash with Kyla teaching music in various schools throughout the city. Paul and Kyla also double as talented musicians.

Scarlett was born in September 2018 and clearly "has everyone completely wrapped around her little finger...Scotia is loving being a big sister and is protective of little Scarlett, even joining in with a few howls when Scarlett cries". This was amazing to witness and it is so easy to see that "Scarlett has completed the Price family".

jaxson fox frank

I always get so excited when my gorgeous clients book a maternity and newborn package as new friendships are found during our first session and it feels like catching up with long lost friends when our part 2 comes around. This little fox was just 6 days new when i arrived at yassy and rob's home in beautiful tweed heads for their newborn lifestyle session featuring gorgeous accessories by Sacred Bundle and Two Tykes. These loved up first time parents were absolutely beaming and so excited to show off their perfect little baby boy. Jaxson Fox, you stole a little piece of my heart that rainy autumn day and i cannot wait to watch you grow. xo

the cracknells

Tiffany, her husband Paul, and i met 8 years ago at antenatal classes when we were both pregnant with our first born boys. Throughout the years following we have always managed to stay in contact - you have gotta love social media for that!

Paul is a radiographer and Tiff, who is a complete foody and amazing cook, has recently established her own business on the Gold Coast called "The Cupcake Mumma" - and she sure brings the goods. How lucky am i when my gorgeous clients turn up with mouth watering rocky road cupcakes!

I first photographed Tiff's gorgeous family way back in 2013, and again a couple of years later with extended family. I have also captured a cake smash of her youngest, Jasper, so when Tiff contacted me for updated family photos, I felt like were were having a big family reunion and couldn't wait to see how much her babies had grown into big boys with extra cute dimples, cheeky grins, mischievious eyes and all.

Harry and Jasper are fairly close in age and the very best of friends. Their most favourite thing ever is watermelon, so the look of delight we received when we gave them a whole section each was priceless - pure happiness. The simple things in life are often the best and this how we rolled on this sunny spring afternoon at Dreamtime Beach.

the bisgroves

I always like to give back to the community and do so regularly. On this particular occasion, last december, I donated a family portrait package to a local school p & c christmas raffle. I was delighted to hear from a lovely Melissa a few months later. Melissa and Shane have 3 gorgeous children Scarlette, Delta and Fletcher and are the owners of a successful landscaping business called Bizscapes. We immediately hit it off and after chatting with Melissa for a while i learned that both of her daughters are talented eisteddfod performers and son fletcher is a keen football player with tweed united football club.

We met on a gorgeous june afternoon in the beautiful coastal town of Kingscliff for our urban lifestyle session. The afternoon was relaxed and casual with this warm and friendly family and this radiates in the gorgeous moments we captured.

yasmin

I photographed beautiful Yasmin, 36 weeks pregnant with her first, in the sweetest orange check bikini on a windy yet sunny summers afternoon 3 weeks ago in the beautiful town of Kingcliff. I always feel like i have hit the jackpot when the breeze is blowing - nothing i love to shoot more than the movement of free flowing hair and clothing caught up in the breeze.

We started our journey in the wind swept trees of the south side where the breeze was blowing quite strong and onshore before deciding to drive over to the northern side of the beach by the waters edge. Enroute to our second spot we stopped by a hidden rainforest stairway which was the cherry on top of a magical lifestyle maternity session.

mila

Mila was a fresh 9 days old when i arrived for her in home newborn lifestyle session. I was greeted at the front door by two of the most doting and smitten first time parents i have ever met, Georgia and Dave, at their amazing freshly renovated coastal home in beautiful Coolangatta.

You wouldnt believe it by looking through the photographs now, but Georgia and Dave had no intention of being photographed with all those new parent feels - we all know those ones ;). After laying their eyes on the raws of Mila wrapped up in her Two Tykes Muslin in her Sacred Bundle Crib, they couldnt resist getting involved and the results speak for themselves - pure magic.

aleia jayne fitness

Aleia and I met quite a few years ago through a mutual friend at a childrens birthday party. She is the sweetest thing with the most infectious smile. You cant help but feel good in her company. Aleia is the founder and director of Aleia Jayne Fitness and offers personal training sessions at Casuarina on the far north coast of NSW.

We all know the power of social media and self promotion for successful business so Aleia booked me in for a swimwear lifestyle session. This late November day was an absolute pearler and summer feels were running high. We laughed and laughed our way through the afternoon and captured some jaw dropping moments of this first time model and absolute killer babe.
