Sunrise Maternity Portraits at Bombo Quarry

Sunrise Maternity Portraits at Bombo Quarry

At the end of last year I had the pleasure of shooting a maternity portrait session with Pim and her husband Matt at one of the most breathtaking locations I’ve ever been to. It was an early start for us to catch first light at Bombo Quarry ( I think I got up at 4:30 for a 5:15 arrival), but it was so worth it to photograph Pim and Matt in this surreal otherworldly seascape, with the most beautiful sunrise light.

It felt extra special to me being able to be document a little bit of Pim’s pregnancy because I was about 12 weeks pregnant at the time.

Muse Canberra- Yvonne and Joe's Intimate Bookstore Wedding

Muse Canberra- Yvonne and Joe's Intimate Bookstore Wedding

I’ve always thought there was something incredibly romantic about bookstores, and if I was a bride all over again I would probably get married in one.

This is how I saw the evening unfold…

Homecoming - an editorial

Homecoming - an editorial

In the 6 months before they fenced off and knocked down the Bega Flats in Canberra, I had noticed the building becoming gradually quieter as the tenants started vacating. It was on my regular jogging route, and for the first time I noticed what a cool building it was. I ended up doing an editorial shoot there with Gem (images from the shoot in this blog post)   

Bega was part of the 'ABC' flats - Allawah, Bega, Currong, and they were all in the process of being cleared to make way for new buildings. This reminded me of Alphabet City in New York, as it was protrayed in 'Rent'- this suddenly made the demolition incredibly evocative and nostalgic. When I heard from Laura (from Lux & Us) that she spent the first year of her life there I knew that I had to take her portraits in that location.
