Sharné | Maternity

I don’t know who was more excited for this shoot – me or Sharné! Only a few days away from her delivery date, she was more than excited to get off her feet and swim for a bit in our amazingly warm Lonehill pool. Emma from Empress Makeup worked her magic to make Sharné look […]

This shoot with Onyksi was one of my favourites – even though we picked the coldest day to shoot! Our first planned date didn’t work out, and then we had a few troubles with the pool! Finally we were able to shoot – regardless of the miserably cold weather! Thank goodness we were indoors with […]

Since I am a problem-solver by nature, I opted to get creative and do something simple that I hoped would help my get started with understanding non-natural light with […]
