Isabeau & Family <3

We had such a lovely day with Isabeau (Parisian in Brisbane) and her family. You will find Isabeau's stylish and on-trend instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/parisianinbrisbane/. Isabeau's makeup was done by Gabrielle Garner from Makeup by GiGi: https://www.instagram.com/_makeupby_gigi/. Gabrielle's work was impeccable and we highly recommend her! We will share some more pictures from the day as we went strawberry picking, too! :-)

Lucinda & Sean <3

It was an absolute delight and pleasure to do lovely Lucinda's maternity shoot. We explored and found the perfect spot in Samford, Queensland. Pretty sure Lucinda and Sean take out the award for cutest couple. You can find Lucinda's sweet blog here (https://www.serendipitylace.com/) and her instagram here (https://www.instagram.com/lucindaskeats/). The stunning outfits were from Nest Maternity (website: https://www.nestmaternitygowns.com/; instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nest_maternity_/). Enjoy!

Brisbane :: Ekka (2/2)

We enjoy going to the Ekka, or Royal Queensland Show. The Ekka is held annually in Brisbane and is our largest agricultural festival (22 hectares worth). We even get a public holiday (People's Day) in honour of the Ekka! From the famous strawberry sundaes ($$ => Prince Charles Hospital Foundation) to the baby animals to side show alley, there is something going on around every corner.

Upma (model) & Jess (hmua) <3

We had a lot of fun shooting with the lovely Upma at the Japanese Gardens, Mt Coot-tha. Check out her instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/upmabravo/ & her facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/upmafashionista/. Jess, the lovely hair & make-up artist (instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/jess.k_makeup/), stepped in on the day and handled the pressure effortlessly. The shoot was undertaken for Hunter Creative (http://www.huntercreativenetwork.com.au/). The project was entitled "Tranquility". It was a pleasure working with everyone involved.

Maleny :: Botanic Gardens & Bird World

We enjoy being a tourist in our own backyard sometimes. There are so many beautiful places in and around Brisbane. Maleny Botanic Gardens & Bird World is located at 233 Maleny Stanley River Rd, Maleny QLD 4552. It's about a 1.5 hour drive north from Brisbane CBD. The Maleny Botanic Gardens currently cover 14 acres; we would recommend spending the best part of a day there - perhaps take a picnic! The Bird World section covers over 1000 m2 and currently houses over 300 birds, including Australian cockatoos, lorikeets, exotic parrots and macaws. The diversity of avian life is vibrant & fascinating! We highly recommend the experience. :-)

Brisbane :: Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens (2/2)

[This is Part 2 of 2 posts.] Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens are Brisbane's second botanic gardens after the City Botanic Gardens in the CBD. Mt Coot-tha is the flood-free alternative to the one in the CBD. The 56 hectare gardens are open every day 8 am to 5:30 pm (closing 5 pm April to August). Like the City Botanic Gardens and Roma Street Parklands, entry to the gardens is free. In addition, you can even go on free guided walks from Monday to Saturday (public holidays excluded). These guided walks are available at 11 am and 1 pm; no booking required. :-)

Restless Legs & Itchy Feet

As well as portraiture, we enjoy travel photography. There always seems to be fresh inspiration around every corner. We aren't big on numbers but we have been to 20 countries to date. We are currently interspersing our regular Instagram posts with some shots from our international travels. If you enjoy travel photography as much as we do, we think we will find a lot to talk about over there. We welcome all tips, recommendations and local insights. Safe travel to fellow explorers! And hello from sunny Brisbane! :-)
