I started my business in Canberra as a wedding photographer. I had much success over the years and used to shoot up to 50 weddings a year. That was when I was young and my body could cope with it! These days I only shoot up 10 weddings a year, and I still LOVE them. (Having said that I don’t shoot all-day-long affairs. Just gorgeous intimate 3-4 hour weddings….perfect!)
When I had my son life as it does changed dramatically and I started doing more family portraiture. I still do quite a bit and I love it, too.
Over the last 5 years my business has graduated to more corporate portraiture and working office photography. Why? Well it is a Monday to Friday gig, and I get to spend more of my weekends with my son and family.
During my time in business over the years I had often seen adverts for Rachel Bird and thought what a beautiful woman (!), and what a great name. Recently, I had the very great pleasure to photograph her and her team. I organised Jacqueline Scott to do Rachel and Sarah’s makeup www.jsmakeup.com.au and we started the shoot early in the day so we could grab some shots near the court without too much traffic or many spectators.
It was a fun gig! I loved the humour, the willingness and ease to be photographed and the light in Rachel’s offices was fabulous! It is such a joy when the stars align and things just click. Rachel now has a new website using the images I made for her and if you are ever in need of a solicitor or barrister as a group of people to deal with they are wonderful! Www.rachelbird.com.au
