Oh hi... have you been looking for me?

I know I have been off the radar. 

But now I am back, and I am so much happier already than I thought I would be. Even without a weekly income and no idea of who is going to pay my rent.

This time I am back, better than ever before. 

I am photographing the same things as I used to - interiors, lifestyle, anything that is pretty or drenched in sunlight.

But this time it is also different.

What you probably don't know about me is that a while back I spent three years studying a degree in communications. When I got out of uni, and I didn't want to be stuck in an office 5 days a week, so I went back to my first love - photography. 

But in recent times I have begun thinking... So many times I do work for clients, and my images never see the light of day, or they are posted online all pixelated and I wonder how it ever came to that...

I want to change things. 

So now, I am excited to be offering social media management to my clients - putting to work all the skills and knowledge I have learnt from running my own business as well as running various aspects of social media for other businesses in recent years.

Here is what I am thinking...

  1. We create a game plan, and set some goals.
  2. I shoot some beautiful content in line with your brand.
  3. I put together a month's worth of posts using that new and gorgeous content.
  4. I will schedule and post them for you. 
  5. And then hopefully, we repeat!

 

 

Either way... It is good to be back!

If you still aren't really sure about what on earth I do, head over to the Services page!

The Language of Wildflowers

There is a place of which where my heart grows fonder each and every time I visit. 

And I feel there is an constant, incessant, pull for me to return. 

I remember being brought to tears, not knowing exactly why, when I left this place at 15. I had spent the past four days trekking along the beaches and through the coastal bush above, with my class from school. 

Yamba was a place I grew up visiting almost every summer. And therefore gained a sense of a personal connection with not only the town, but Yuraygir National Park, that from Yamba extends southward down the coast. 

Only in recent years have I felt an immense appreciation for the expanse of idyllic coastal bushland that is Yuraygir. Where the wild shifting ocean meets the cliff faces and beaches; the wind coaxing trees into shapes almost parallel to the ground where they grow their roots. 

And in September, the park comes alive in colour. Blooming with flannel flowers, pink boronia, white swamp heath and so many more native flowers than I can even begin to learn the names of. Though, I am trying desperately.

In 2015, we visited a section of the park between Yamba and Angourie and simply in awe of what was before me I turned to capture it all on film, wound into an old Minolta SRT-101.

6 months (or more) later I have developed that film and I am reminded of not only this wonderful season in Yuraygir, but also of the beauty of film photography.
