Family Photography Session – Cataract Gorge

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of photographing this lovely family that had NEVER had any family photos taken, never all in the same photo all at once, so it was a pleasure to finally photograph them all together.  We had lots of fun and even got photobombed by a peacock!

Red Feather Inn Wedding – Tegan & Byron

Oh what slackness, once again my blogging skills have failed and I have hardly posted anything at all this year! Here are some photos of one of my best friend’s wedding back in December last year. I was so excited when she asked me to take her photos and even more excited when she told me the location. The Red Feather Inn is absolutely beautiful. It was such a stunning day, and I miss her lots as she has flown away overseas. xx

Food Styling Workshop at The Black Hen

A few weeks ago I spent a lovely morning at The Black Hen in Deloraine.  The Black Hen was hosting a food styling workshop, run by the lovely Michelle from Hugo & Elsa.

Michelle is a food stylist, cook, and author of a beautiful cook book I must buy.  If you have not been to The Black Hen, you must.  It is a beautiful shop, filled with wonderful things, beautifully styled and decorated.  Upstairs there is a wonderful area where the workshop was hosted.

After we heard about some tricks of the trade, Michelle asked us to pair up and grab some fruit or vegetables to create a flat lay scene.  The type of image you might post to instagram.  I paired up with a lovely lady from Henry’s Ginger Beer and we grabbed some red peppers, some plates and off we went to select a board.  This one spotted my eye first so we started with that.  I found a lot of it was just trial and error, just keep going till you get something that looks pleasing to the eye.  We also tried “throwing” the vegetables which seems to have them land in the perfect position.

Soon it was time for lunch.  We all pitched in and dressed the table, which was fun, using some of the food we photographed and props from around the room

Before lunch was served Michelle talked us through some images she styled in some fabulous cook books.

Then lunch arrived….

Lunch was divine, and we had desert also.  We then moved on to styling some desert.

I decided to fill a little pastry case with some strawberries.

This little pastry travelled around the whole room trying to find a shot that looked nice…

I gave up on the pastry and spotted some strawberries.  I put a few elements together and this was more pleasing to me.

I had a wonderful day, and met some lovely ladies whom I am now following on instagram.  I can highly recommend the course, it was great to do something different and to meet some new people.
