Flashing Lights

I recently had the privilege to shoot local youth band

Flashing Lights

we had a really playful session which left me wishing I had some of the confidence I do now when I was a teen, so I could really enjoy the bantering and fun of the age. Never mind. Better late than never.

IMG_0382i haven’t shared much of my teen years, yet…

anyhow being on this side of the screen allows me to ask you

what quality do you wish you had as a teen?

what would you say to your teen self?

what qualities do you hope your children will develop as teens?



Shaye, Lee and Wala

I spent a few delightful hours with Shaye and Lee and Wala after the Mullum Music festival

and spontaneously took some joyful photos of them together!

a musical genious with an excellent array of jokes

{that’s why we’re all smiling}

an inspired and inspirational artist

and the cutest little cheeky pixie

Kirrah and Guy


during our week up north we visited our dear friends

Kirrah and Guy, especially for a birthday

and then I had the joy of photographing their great home

{and them}

they have been busy insulating their walls with hempcrete

 {an old recipe of hemp pulp, lime and water}

isn’t that awesome?

and you  can find their blog here...

and Kirrah’s work here...

and the work of Guy here…

enjoy this glimpse into the bush home of these inspiring, creative, proactive, capable young people!IMG_4403 IMG_4406 IMG_4407 IMG_4410 IMG_4411 IMG_4412IMG_4413 IMG_4416 IMG_4419 IMG_4423 IMG_4425 IMG_4438 IMG_4439 IMG_4443 IMG_4449 IMG_4459 IMG_4462 IMG_4464
