O’Hoey there!!! Autumn in Albert Park :)

Autumn is by far my favourite time of year to do photo shoots – full of golden tones and dusky light.

When the Hoey’s asked me to take some family portraits I jumped at the chance of taking their shots  particularly as the brief was to cover streets and areas that they loved living in as a family over the past few years.  Armed with my camera and several toys for Matilda, we hit their neighbourhood, Albert Park, and took full advantage of its beautiful tree lined streets, parks and cafes.

I think Anne-Marie, Ben and Matilda’s personalities reflect streets around them – the colours are warm and vibrant and the streets are full of love. Perfect backdrop for this super cute family 🙂





















Beth & Rich’s Urban Wedding

Beth and Rich approached me 10 months ago asking if I would be interested in taking their Save the Date and Wedding photos.  I had taken Rich’s sister and brother-in-law’s photos (Alex and Patrice) a few years back and they liked the style of my shots.  I hadn’t shot a full wedding in a couple of years and I wasn’t sure if I could do it (self-doubt always creeps in when I knew I could do it).  After a pretty cool Save the Date shoot in Cremone’s back streets (see blog post 3 below) and realising how photogenic Beth and Rich were, I thought – I can do this.  Beth and Rich were awesome – we worked out a plan of attack – 5 locations starting with the Groom in Hawthorn, Bride in the Melbourne CBD, Marriage Ceremony in South Yarra, Wedding Party shots in funky Carlton and finally the Wedding Reception at Two Ton Max in North Melbourne – phew! Logistics were full on but we got there, had a blast and these are the results….






Hampton Halloween 2017

Trick or Treat!!! Halloween came round again and this year I had no outfit for the kids Halloween Party that I had been invited to down in Hampton. Rummaging through my poor excuse of a dress up box, I pulled out a Tigger onesie (pathetic I know..) but I also grabbed my camera on the way out of the door….and I’m glad I did as I managed to capture these little legends (and their parents) in full Halloween flow 🙂















Alexander is 1 :)

My wee pal Alexander had just turned 1.  His mum and dad (my good friends Anne and Con) had asked me round to take some shots.  Little did I know he had mastered moving at lightening speed on his knees…. I spent most of the afternoon on mine trying to keep up with him.  Here are the shots when we managed to pin him down!!!



Save The Date!!!

I was fortunate enough to spend a sunny Saturday afternoon with Beth and Richard scouting about Richmond for some cool locations. Beth and Richard wanted photos to be used for their Save the Date wedding cards and that they were thinking of having an ‘Industrial’ Melbourne theme. I think we came up trumps in Cremorne – the couple look fantastic and the photos look awesome – it really fit the brief. Here are a couple of shots of this very handsome couple in action….the 24/7 winning shot is directly below…. 🙂



The Melbourne Shhhh Speakeasy Wedding….

Gabby and George asked me to come along to take photos at their Melbourne CBD wedding…..yep, these two lovebirds wanted a small intimate affair and I promised (pinky promised) that I wouldn’t say a thing…. I’m pleased to say that the double G’s have now given me the go ahead to post away 🙂

This wedding was cool – epitome of Melbourne – quirky, casual, warm with laneway appeal including a 1920’s speakeasy cocktail bar and a food celebration at Claypots Evening Star…gorgeous. It was a lovely evening that matched this lovely bubbly couple to a tee xx





Sometimes Photos Just Jump Out at You…

One thing that I have learned during this photography lark is that there are sometimes photos that just summarise the moment or jump out at you. It’s these photos that really make me enjoy photography, capturing that moment and freezing it in time… Here’s one that made me smile 🙂


Yogi Ros – Torquay Beach Yoga Shoot

My good friend Ros and her family moved from Melbourne to Dublin around 18 months ago.  Originally from Glasgow and being a fellow Scot we had instantly clicked when we started working together in Melbourne 3 years ago.

Ros would always tell me that her escape from her hectic corporate life was through yoga and meditation. We wanted to capture that ‘sanctuary’ Ros felt in order to promote her new yoga venture in Dublin. We decided that Torquay was the ideal spot – surf, sand, sea and yoga.

I think these photos really do reflect how fit, positive and most importantly strong Ros is – she’s an amazing lady and a very loyal friend.  And she looks incredible for being a mum of three with a crazy corporate life – she is very much a role model to me 🙂

I was asked by Ele and Vinny if I would take their baby daughter Darcie’s christening photos.  I’ve always been a little nervous when it comes to taking photos of babies – mainly because you’ve no idea if they will howl and scream or giggle and gurgle into the camera.  Darcie, being the cutie she is, was an absolute gem – such a gorgeous wee girl to shoot and very photogenic.  These are some of the highlights…

Saint Louie Hair Photo Shoot

It’s been a while! But I thought I would come back with this very cool photo shoot that I did last year for Saint Louie Hair, Melbourne.  I was asked to take photos for their newly updated website. The brief given to me said it all – ‘What would Nick Cave do?’ – yup, that meant moody, black and white, rock and roll. Grungy, cool and arty…photo book style. JP, Ivan and Katherine were awesome models too…fantastic in front of the camera that matches their flare with scissors behind the lens.  I’ll let the photos tell the rest…
