Immersion - Fine-art Water Photography

Every year I take on a personal project where I create artworks that have a deep meaning for me and that I feel will be a beneficial view to share in the world. This year for my personal work I am paying homage to the Pre-Raphaelite genre of master painters .
Expressing a serenity and sensuality through the female form. 
In deep meditative states a certain blissful awareness arises, where there is what’s referred to as a physical and mental pliancy experienced. My work is an expression of gratitude and reverence, and a calling for this state.

If you’re interested in a water photography session, please don’t hesitate to contact me today to discuss the details.

Angel series

Fine Art Children's Photography : Angels

Beautiful images for my angel children series.

Fine Art photography for me is about expressing some universal emotions and notions of our time and especially depicting some quality and observed issue for our children.

Here I was exploring our children's vulnerabilities, their innocence, pressures, hopes and dreams, and their lightness.

I wanted to express how I feel children are angels to their parents, because they allow us to taste compassion and unconditional love, where we gladly sacrifice time, energy and resources for them, just so we know they are happy.

They stay for a time, then they grow up, teaching us they are not there to permanently activate this love in us but rather to show us that we can be loving and selfless, so we can continue to do it when they are no longer children, for the rest of the world.

Please contact me if interested in creating some magical images today.

Gabrielle's studio session

When  a client comes for a portrait session, I love to be able to grab a relaxed image of them in their everyday clothing, before all the styling and posing begins. Just a neutral friendly headshot, that captures their relaxed selves.

Beautiful lighting is one of the most important aspects to studio photography. I love this lighting that creates a soft beauty look. 

A dramatic gown, simple side lighting and a dark background gives a completely new and stunning look.

I love simple paired back styling and a subdued colour palette.

Minimalist, and classic, giving that timeless quality, where the individuals traits can stand out, and the images become poetic and lyrical.

Little Jupiter's bubble bath and cuddle time session

Sweet little Jupiter at 6 months old had the best bath time photography session. In my home studio, I use natural light and studio lights, capturing some whimsical softly lit images for bathtime, and some clear traditional studio images for classical portraits.

I style the session depending on the preferences of the parent, choosing and guiding in style the backdrops, clothes and props.

A little bit of bathtime makes for the best images, as your baby is contained and entertained. A wonderful way to capture their curiosity and gorgeous expressions.

After bath play time is incredibly fun, slipping around in the soap or snuggling in a blanket.

When your baby needs some cuddle time, or a feed, some beautiful images can be captured showing the special bond between parent and baby.

Some classic baby portraits can also be captured, showing their cute curiosity and their small adorable features.

It's a wonderful time to capture some beautiful portraits of your baby having those special cuddles. Having a studio portrait session, means you can show breastfeeding and skin to skin portraits in privacy and comfort.

If you're interested in a baby session for your precious little treasure, please contact me to arrange all your session details.

Immy and Kendall's fine art session

A special time for a Mummy and Me session is a gift to yourself and your child, that will be treasured and remembered for always. I wanted to create a magical session with Immy and Kendall, showing their sweet natures, and simple beauty. Alot of the props in this session come from Immy's collection of saved gems. I find alot of my clients have special little items that work in so well with my style, I love to use them in the shoot, as it becomes very personal.

Capturing your child's innocence and beauty.

Dressing up is a part of the fun of the session, the child is engaged because their imagination is stimulated. I love creating simple styles, where one or two items are used, and the portrait focuses on the simple elements, and the child's whimsical expressions, and cute little features.

Some stunning portraits showing the beautiful connection between mother and child is an absolute honor. When I take these images, I have in mind creating a portrait as a large print on the family wall, which stands out as special and timeless. 

I have a background in fashion and beauty photography, so Im always looking to take some beautiful portraits of the mum in the session. I think its a beautiful gift for the parent to be witnessed in a beautiful light, and is an invaluable lesson for the child to see their mother as beautiful and willing to be seen as so. 

I love to set up a styled session, taking inspiration from old master painters. A connection and referral to simpler times, where beautiful objects and artworks of still lifes were decadent and moody.

I love capturing a simple and understated portrait, where the child is natural, and doesnt have to put on a big cheesy grin. Capturing their neutral expressions, lets those subtle expressions and thoughts in the eyes emerge.

Contact me today to plan your next fine art children's session, and experience this special session for yourself.

Fine Art Children's Photography - Jess and Scarlet

A beautiful session, where the child gets to dress up and take time to let their imagination play, and feel special under the bright lights. 

I look for a neutral sweet expression, gently guiding their pose and expression to create an image that shows their innocence and their gentle spirits.

A variety of looks and poses are captured, especially those family and friend cuddles, which are always a magical and much loved part of the session.

The children love the attention, and the special quality of the session.

They respond easily to my gentle but confident guidance, and praise. I never push them into unnatural poses or expressions, but instead see how they naturally look and guide them with gentle adjustments. 

The family portraits are always offered in the session, and any family member can join in.

The little ones in our life change so quickly and life can be so fast paced, the years can fly past. Spending the time in a precious portrait session that captures their stillness and grace, is an invaluable present for your children and family members, and will be treasured for always. 

Fine Art Children Photography - Staged

A Fine Art Portrait should be one that correctly captures the individual being photographed, but also adds a story that compliments their personality. I aim to create works that are not like ordinary photographs that we take of our selves or our loved ones, but are special and unique, and show the subject slightly in another world.

In my Fine Art sessions, I treat the individual being photographed much like they are sitting for a painting portrait. I make sure they are comfortable, and create a beautiful flattering lighting set up, that brings out their features. I then gently guide them in their pose and expression.

I aim to create a few different looks that involve changes in lighting, clothing and mood. This creates a gallery that is varied and beautiful. 

Capturing expressions that are genuine and innocent is my goal, and as the subject relaxes and becomes used to being photographed their beautiful personality emerges.

These images will be kept throughout the individuals whole lifetime. As they grow and change, they will look back on them, and their families will keep and cherish them always.

If you, or someone you know, are interested in a Fine Art Portrait session, just contact me and we can plan something magical.

Home visit newborn session for Jagger

A look into my world of newborn photography.

These sessions are done as home visits, just after the baby has arrived home, or if a home birth, when the family feels ready. The best time for a newborn session is around day 6, but best before 2 weeks old.

The session takes about 3 hours, and I bring all the necessary equipment and props. All that is needed is a few metres of available space either next to good natural light, or a bit more room for me to set up my studio lights.

Detailed crop of previous image.

A newborn session is a morning time spent gently moving and positioning your baby into safe and comfortable poses. The gallery of images that I make for my clients home is designed to work together in colour and tone, but especially aimed at capturing the little ones individual cuteness. 

In this session, little baby Jagger slept soundly the whole time, a very relaxed little guy. His mum said he was always peaceful in the womb as well, so the personality is there from the earliest moments. 

I love to use a window light that I softly diffuse, it creates an intimate and timeless portrait of the parents and baby.

I take my time to capture and pose the parents and baby, so that each individual is conveying their beauty and personality.  I always edit in a flattering but natural manner, creating a stunning image that shows love in the gaze.

I love to capture some storytelling in my portraits, creating stunning art works worthy of  printing, and keeping in the home for many years.

Getting those cute little portraits of the baby in a bonnet frames their features beautifully, and the baby loves being wrapped up on my soft posing beanbag.

If you are considering using me for your newborn photography session please visit my galleries or review tab on facebook, to see all the happy clients I have had the pleasure of serving, and please contact me with any questions you may have. Its a big decision as to who to use for capturing your images, and Im happy to take the time to talk, to make sure you are comfortable with your choice.

Fine Art Children Photography - Lauris

My fine art childrens portraiture sessions allow me to explore my passion for simple traditional portraiture. I especially love to discover and capture the child's innocence, allowing their vulnerability to shine through,  making the most divine portraits. 

A childs gaze can melt the heart and uplift the spirit.

Giving young teenagers and children a positive self image is so important to me, I believe they benefit so much from seeing this beautiful vision of themselves, that I see through my images. These positive images stay with them, and they carry them in their hearts, building their self esteem and belief in themselves. 

The sessions are carried out with a simple studio light and backdrop. I style and pose the child as needed, with 2-4 changes of clothing, and gently encourage and guide them, in a session where they get to feel special, and cared for. 

My style is serene, and full of beauty, and romance. Influenced by the renaissance artists, I convey an old worldly atmosphere, combined with a contemporary and genuine portrait of who the child is with their own personal style.

Please enquire if you have a special little someone in your life, who you would love to see some magical portraits of. 

Dry ice mist bath

This amazing imagery was so rewarding to create. The dry ice releases this cool mist and when the subject simply lies down in it, it creates the most dreamy images. 

I love the level of colour and depth achieved, the images become works of art, definitely worthy of printing and exhibiting.

Each image is created in layers has many composited elements, giving the images a level of exquisite beauty.

These images were created at a boudoir session, but any type of clothing can be worn, a beautiful glamorous couture gown would be perfect. Cant wait for my next shoot!
