• Travel Photography | Moroccan Adventures
    • Travel Photography | Cordoba, Spain
      I realised that with the busy year it was last year I never got a chance to post photos from my travels. Considering I visited Mexico, Spain, Morocco, New Zealand and Japan last year I thought it was a bit amiss of me! I thought I should get back to posting these photos and I’m ...
    • Our 5th Wedding Anniversary
      This Saturday is our fifth wedding anniversary. Last weekend Dave and I celebrated by taking a weekend away and exploring the country towns of Kyneton, Bendigo, Maldon and Castlemaine. Some of our travel over the weekend was done by steam train. We stayed in a beautiful old miners’ cottage in Maldon but most importantly we ...
    • We’ve moved! Come and visit us soon!
      We’ve recently moved from our little studio in Collingwood to a pretty awesome space a stone’s throw away from the city in West Melbourne. The studio is super versatile and has many nooks and crannies, and heaps of options for shooting the environmental portraits we love to shoot. It’s conveniently located next to North Melbourne train ...
    • My journey to “holy crap I won”
      Every year the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) holds their print awards. For those of you who have never heard of such a thing, it is a way for us as professional photographers to have our work critiqued and judged by our peers. It’s a big deal; there is a panel, five judges and ...
    • Big Issue Magazine Feature images from Sri Lanka
      Last year, when I went to photograph Sasi and Tom’s wedding in Bangkok, I tagged along on a trip to Sri Lanka with my friend Kate. Kate and I first met when we were both in our first year of primary school. We had a fantastic time travelling through such a beautiful country. I’m ...
    • Creative Time Out
      I don’t usually blog much outside of what I photograph directly for clients, but I thought I might share a little piece of what I was doing and where I was over the last few days. I guess I’m revealing a little bit of me here today. I usually tell other people’s stories, not my own, ...
    • Slow Magazine ~ Burmese Train Journey
      I’d wanted to go to Burma/Myanmar for a long time. I’d also debated about whether it was the right thing to do. Burma has been boycotted by the international community since 1995 because of it’s military dictatorship. We made the decision to go after talking to a friend who lived in Myanmar for some time. ...
    • New York, New York
      I’ve just returned from New York, so I’m spreading the news… It is such an amazing city to shoot and be inspired by. These are a few shots I took while walking the streets. As you can see I was definitely drawn to the industrial buildings and architecture. In some aspects, I feel I was shooting ...
    • My Creative Space: Iphone adventures
      I don’t get a lot of free time and sometimes, when I do, the last thing I feel like doing is taking more photographs. And that scares me. The thing is, I might not always feel like taking photographs but I am always seeing pictures. There is always a stream of conscious thought; thoughts I ...
    • My Creative Space: Myanmar, Burma
      People talk about having the travel bug. And I truly think I have it. I love to travel and always have. I think it stems from listening to my parents’ stories of travelling. Not very often but occasionally a snippet of a story would come up. Travelling in India with a budget of a $1 ...
    • Featured in The Big Issue – The Moustache Brothers
      Dave and I have collaborated again and the Big Issue has published our story and images in their current issue. The images and story are from a trip we took to Myanmar (Burma) a few months ago. As Australians, perhaps our most sacred right—nay, duty—as citizens of this fine land is to chastise, satirise and otherwise ...
    • Images from The Big Issue feature (plus a few extra)
      These are the images (and a few extra from the same shoot) featured in The Big Issue magazine in which my husband (David Carroll) and I collaborated.  He supplied the editorial, I supplied the images.

      The current issue of The Big Issue features a four page spread of my photographs accompanying a story by David Carroll (my husband!) about joining an Italian marching band in Melbourne.  I’ve posted images of the magazine and the story, but still go out a buy a copy and support a really great initiative. The Big ...
    • Urban Japan
      If you’ve been reading my blog you’ll have noticed I am quite fond of Japan.  One of the things that really gets me is that it isn’t always what people expect.  These are some photographs of some of the Japanese urban landscape.
    • Matsumoto Portraits
      Over the Christmas and new year period I took a short break. Which meant I got a chance to work on some of the images I took while in Japan late last year. Some previous posts from Japan can be seen here and here. These are some of the Japanese Wedding I photographed too. While ...
    • In Transit | Images from Japan
      Did I mention that I love Japan? Sometimes I can’t put my finger on why, I think there are many reasons.  Sometimes it’s because I think it is so different.  So different then anywhere I’ve ever been. Even though I lived in Japan for a year and a half and this was my third trip ...
    • Back on Australian Soil | Images from Japan
      I’m back in Melbourne after an absolutely amazing time in Japan. It was a bit whirlwind but we got to visit some amazing places and have some great unique experiences  including staying in a Buddhist monastery with 6am morning prayer, dodgem car  bicycle riding on the city pavements, relaxing in outdoor natural hot spring baths with views ...
    • Yarra Valley Weekend | Melbourne Photographer
      Last weekend I managed to escape the city streets for a weekend at the Yarra Valley. I find myself working most weekends so it is a very rare and very exciting opportunity. But having friends visiting from Queensland seemed like as good a reason as any to take a long weekend. And the fact that ...

    • Havana, Cuba.
      I use this blog to not only post my wedding and portrait photography but my own personal & travel photographs.  If you follow this blog you will see that I’ve been posting photos intermittently from my recent honeymoon in Central America (including Havana, Cuba.) The architecture in Havana is fascinating, there is an amazing mix of ...

    • waiting for something | Melbourne Photographer
      Another photograph from Cuba, my Central America series. It feels as if every doorway or window in Cuba has someone sitting or standing in them. Usually they are either watching the passers by, chatting to neighbours, or just hanging around.

    • A Cuban | Melbourne Photographer
    • Che | Melbourne Photographer
      I really liked Trinidad, Cuba so I thought I’d post a few photos from our time there.  This one is of a bus waiting room. It’s surprising that I liked Trinidad considering that in Trinidad we rode bikes in torrential rains for about 7km back to town, lost a small point and shoot camera, took a bus still ...
    • Not just another travel photo…| Melbourne Photographer
      Trinidad, Cuba Well, I thought I might try and post random travel photos from my trip (honeymoon) which saw us visiting San Francisco, Cuba, Mexico, Belize and Guatemala.  So keep checking back to see photographic insights from our trip, I’ll try and post as much as possible…
