Cara – Heart Warrior {Sawtell Coffs Harbour Portrait Photographer}

CaraBlog01

This was all about celebrating life & being grateful for just being. Cara is recovering both physically & mentally from her latest open heart surgery & wanted to capture all the feelings that come with it. We talked about everything from anxiety & fear to pride & faith in ones self. It was an amazing sunrise & I was pretty high all day from the energy & images we created. It was so still but so raw & real. More sunrise sessions & more portraits please – just putting it out there.

Cara was born with a congenital heart defect & her parents were told to take her home & enjoy whatever time they had with her because it would be a miracle if she lived past the age of six. Since her first open heart surgery at just three days old she has gone on to have four more during her young life. Now at 32 she is proving those doctors wrong every day. You will be able to read more of her story soon on her blog but you can find Cara at @wildheart1984 until then. Also I’m just going to leave this here>> http://www.donatelife.gov.au

The Colley-Holsbys {Sydney Lifestyle Photography Coffs Harbour Family Photographer}

ColleyBlog001

Danielle, of Keeping Up With The Holsbys fame is an old school friend of mine & the timing of my recent Sydney trip was perfect for us to finally get together & document her family. Although I had never met Dex & Kiki before they immediately let me right in to their house & their worlds. It had been bucketing down in Sydney for over a week when I arrived & we luckily scored a small break between showers on the afternoon we had scheduled. I love shooting in Sydney City so much & Paddington is definitely a favourite spot.  Free range sessions like this are what I live for. Thanks, Team:)

The Family McCartin {Coffs Harbour Sawtell Family Portrait Photographer}

McCartinBlog001

Generally when photographers contact me & say they want me to document their family I go into a tailspin & immediately think of all the reasons I can’t/shouldn’t do it because I get so nervous. When Mik said to me though that his crew were happy to go anywhere, do anything & that all he wanted was to get in the frame I couldn’t say no:)Kim & Mik are talented, warm & fun & our two families bonded straight away. I loved being able to show them a little bit of our town & to photograph their now family of five.
