Personal: Family Holiday to Darwin {Hawkesbury Family Photographer}

I try so hard to put my camera down (aside from the obligatory shots of course) when I’m on a holiday with my family. I really do. But here’s the thing; A family holiday is the perfect opportunity for me to practice my favourite style – natural, candid, documentary photography. I’m not needing to rush off…

Big News!

Fingers reflexively stretching into the air, stiff and uncontrolled. Nose wrinkling while breathless yawns escape tiny lips. Mouth suckling warm milk, snuffling, airways not yet opened completely.

Your little fingers tracing my ear when you don’t even know you’re doing it. They wander freely, outlining curves while you babble consonants to invent words you truly believe exist, repeating them as I marvel at you. The way you flap your arms and bounce excitedly when we see someone or something you love. Your…

Dear ‘Anon’.

I received an Anonymous email a couple of days ago, in which a seemingly bad speller, has berated me for sharing my extremely personal post on PTSD & Anxiety. He or she has stated that they think it is “unprofessional” of me to share this information on a business website. They have also accused me of using…
