James and Samantha travelled all the way from Townsville to meet with me in December last year. Samantha had booked their session, not knowing that James was going to propose only two days before our shoot! He did consider surprising her during the session with her beautiful diamond, but knew the tears would flow and didnt want his beautiful bride to be to ruin her make up.... If you ask me, he's a keeper!

There is nothing more exciting than adding to your young family, especially when your family is as beautiful as this one. We had a lovely relaxed aftenoon in the dry creek bed just outside Charters Towers, I took some time to document this little family as they are before the new arrival comes. We wrapped up the session with a gender reveal. THIS WAS SO MUCH FUN we were all beaming from ear to ear by the time we were finished.

Hello October!

I really cannot belive how fast this year has gone. I have had the most eventful year and have found myself evolving personally which in turn is reflecting in my stlyle.

When I look back at where I started with my Photography business only a few years ago and compare it to where I find myself in the present I almost have to pinch myself to know that it really is real, all of my hard work, persistance, juggling my business and family life is really paying off. Nothing more excites me about the future.

When I was approached by a very good friend to donate a voucher to go up for auction at the event, I jumped at the chance.... because who doesnt a country race meet?! I must say It was THE BEST weekend I had experienced in a long time and will definately be returning in the future.

I couldnt believe my luck when Katelyn and Darren first contacted me to photograph their wedding. 

Right from our very first meeting, I knew their big day would be nothing short of spectacular.

I really do love every wedding I attend, but I have to say this is one of my very favourites.

I am a firm believer in allowing kids to be themselves during a photoshoot. I see it all the time when parents turn up worried about the kids and how they will handle being in front of the camera.

My secret to getting beautiful, natural & happy portraits of kids?

is to LET THEM HAVE FUN!

In this case it meant sea shell hunts, sandy hands, cartwheels and squeals of delight at the end when Mum and Dad let them frolick in the sea with their best clothes on! ...

There really is nothing like documenting the ordinarily beautiful.

When I first met this beautiful couple and learned their story it touched a special place in my heart. 

Darrell & Sharon waited 20 years for their big day and boy was it worth the wait. They exchanged their vows in an intimate ceremony on their gorgeous property 20 minutes outside of Chrters Towers. As far as weddings go you couldnt have asked for a more beautiful day.

Ever wondered what it is like to do a Boudoir session? 

The mere thought of stripping down to your underwear in front of someone with a camera is enough to terrify most babes. But this is something every single woman should do without hesitation! 

WHY??

because right now you are perfectly, gorgeously YOU!  I promise you, your future older self will one day love to look back with fond memories on how vibrantly beautiful you were.

 Haley xx 

It is ALWAYS a good time to fall in love with your body.

There is something I have noticed about all of the young girls I photograph in Charters Towers.

I am sure you will all agree with me that they are incredibly beautiful!

and I dont mean the standard "look at me im gorgeous".

These girls are so beautiful on the inside it radiates on the outside.

I am sure it has something to do with the fresh country air.

There's nothing I love more than giving women the opportunity to see their true beauty.

When it comes to Boudoir Photography, every single session has the ability to be life changing to my clients. You see, all it takes is to see one's self from a different perspective. We are all so used to staring at our refelctions in the mirror, picking at the bits we dislike so much, that we forget how beautiful we are in the eyes of everyone else around us.

I few months ago I ran a competion to WIN yourself a free wedding. All you had to do was write in to me and tell me your love story. So many beautiful, heart warming stories came flooding in, it almost made it impossible for me to choose a winner. So I sat with my panel (and a bottle of wine) and we read through each and every story and then voted. We couldnt look past this beautiful young couple that are so filled with love they just had to be the pair to win the competition. I'm so pleased I had the chance to gift Casidhe and Tom their wedding photography.
