I’ve known Jodie for over 10 years starting out in the health-food and alternative medicine industry. Jodie now helps many Women and Men achieve their goals by combining her amazing knowledge in naturopathy, nutrition and personal training.
Having myself spent many years competing in Road and Track Cycling I know first hand the importance of balancing these three area’s, neglect of any one of them will always end in underwhelming results..
Some time ago Jodie set her self some medium term body transformation goals, she booked me in a fair way in advance for a photo shoot to add some extra pressure to follow through with the training and dieting to achieve her goals.
Here are some of the photos we took at her recent photo shoot, now forty something… this is the best I’ve seen her look.. Well Done Jodes!

Sean & Cathy held their wedding in a beautiful hidden part of Sydney’s Royal National Park known as Lilyvale… Even though I had travelled past there many times in the past I hadn’t actually been inside the gates. The ceremony was held on a deck just above a running stream and the reception was 50 metres away in a bright, airy building in the middle of gardens and perfectly maintained lawns, perfect for kids to play in while friends and family let their hair down and enjoy the afternoon. When combining a fun group of people with a beautiful location you can’t help but end up with a lovely set of Wedding Photos.
Congratulations Sean & Cathy!

Unless you’ve been a professional model you’re probably like most people who at times can feel a little awkward in front of a camera. On your wedding day you’re going to want the best set of Photographs you’ve ever had to keep as a record of your Wedding Day, therefore an engagement session is a great opportunity to spend some time getting comfortable with your photographer, learning what angles work best for you both whilst enjoying some quality time together creating a beautiful set of images that can be used on invitations, guest books and wall art for around the house.
Some couples like to go to the place they are getting married for their engagement shoot, that way on the day we have an excellent idea of the spots we want to photograph as well as the time it’s going to take to get to each location, ensuring the big day runs as smoothly as possible.
The collection of images below is from a recent engagement session I did at Lavender Bay in Sydney.

Don’t overthink it! The best shot’s happen when your casual and relaxed. Use your surroundings and props, leaning against a doorway, a car, interacting and messing around with your groomsmen or sitting on the edge of a chair.
Similar to posing a bride, what ever is closest to the camera will look biggest, so if you’ve got a bit of a belly it’s best if you slouch forward slightly so your face is closer to the camera than your waist. Keep the chin up and out so you don’t end up with “double chin” this will have you looking sharp.
Guys can keep their shoulders a bit more square to the camera than Girls, this will make you look broader and more masculine.
Our photography style is quite candid, you’ll still have some formal shots but mostly we will ask you and your partner to stand in a particular spot that works well with the conditions then let you chat, laugh and interact with each other so we can step back and capture the moment as it unfolds naturally.

Don’t pay to much attention to what you see in fashion and bridal magazines, those photography sessions can last for hours in order to produce one perfectly polished image.
The one thing that people love to see in photo’s is personality and genuine emotion.
As far as posing here are a few tips:
- Try to stand at 45 degrees to the camera and turn your head and shoulders towards the lens.
- Put your weight on your back foot so your foot closest to the camera is only just touching the ground, which will give you a nice feminine bend in your front leg.
- Slightly bend towards the camera from your hips and keep your chin up. This will prevent the double chin commonly seen in “selfies”…
- Your Boquet is a nice prop to be used in photo’s but it shouldn’t overshadow the beautiful dress you are wearing, so hold it in a relaxed fashion and not like a school kid would hold up a merit certificate infront of assembly.
- You don’t always have to make eye contact with the camera, to be honest once you get the formal portraits out of the way you can just interact with each other, cuddle, kiss, talk and laugh and the magic will happen all on it’s own. A good photographer will direct you on the day if there is something they feel will make a good shot, so no need to overthink things to much.

Not that long ago getting the family together for a Photo session was a well planned, special occasion. Everyone would get dressed up, hair and make up done and the family would have their pictures taken by a professional photographer.
For many families it wasn’t just about getting a nice set of photos but It was a good opportunity to enjoy some quality family time together whilst creating lifelong memories. Much of this has been replaced by countless snapshots on mobile phones that end up on social media for a day or so, earning a few likes and the odd comment then quickly getting pushed out the bottom of the news feed where they fade into insignificance.
With a little bit of planning and preparation we can create a set of family Photographs that you would be proud to hang on your wall, looking your very best and to be enjoyed by you and your family for years to come. Beautiful Photo’s also make great gifts for family members, especially the ones that are hard to buy for.
So why not give us a call and arrange a time to get some new photographs of your family while enjoying some quality time together.
