Nice to meet you.
I have an advanced Diploma in Multimedia Design and a certificate in Graphic Reproduction. I have worked in print and design for over 20 years.
I have been a hobby photographer for over 20 years and have been taking portraits of babies and children and families for over 10 years.
My experience with children comes from interacting with family and friends. I have a unique way of capturing children in their moment, showing their personality naturally, using available lighting.
I only photograph using available natural light, no flash or reflectors.
My editing skills are always improving, as I love to take things to the next step.
Thanks for visiting, If you are interested in me capturing the Stuff and Nonsense of you and your Darlings, please feel free to drop me an email or call me directly.
Capturing the Stuff
Stuff and Nonsense Photography will help our clients look their best. Keep their photos up to date and will capture special moments of their lives.
I am highly creative and spontaneous and vary rarely take routinely posed shots.
All of my images are created using state of the art equipment in high-resolution digital format, from which I edit to bring out the best in the image and then print using the latest and highest quality of machinery. I use only the finest photographic labs ensuring the images are delivered to the client with the highest possible quality available.
What about the Nonsense
Bubba’s and Kiddo's
I use natural soft lighting to capture the new born. I do not ask that the baby be asleep – sometimes an awake bubba is just as adorable as one that is peacefully sleeping.
I work with the baby and the mood of the day. My photos are totally spontaneous and creative. I do not use props or run of the mill poses.
When it comes to the Kiddo's, expect some fun!
I let the kids lead me, I have fun with them, and the results are images that capture the personality of the child.
Feel free to bring along a favourite toy or blankie...its all part of capturing the moment in the most natural way.
If by chance the child is not having a good day and is shy or awkward around the camera, I have a few tricks that I have learnt over the years to get natural giggles and a bit of mischief out of the little monkeys.
The whole Gang! – Family and Pet portraits.
Portraits of the entire family are needed for display and to send to relatives. They are lovely to have as a record of time and moments of happiness.
Stuff and Nonsense Photography can arrange to have photos taken in your house, backyard, Local Park or even your favourite beach.
I love photographing outdoors and encourage family portraits to include your furry four legged children.
