i’m not that girl who carries her camera everywhere. it drives luke crazy because as a family with a photographer in it, we have relatively few photos of the places we go, but a million of the faces we know.
my passion for the art lies in the constant challenge of collecting awesome experiences and converting them into great images. for me, that experience is nestled in the human interactions. in emotion and a moment, rather than scenery and things.
earlier this month i got the incredible opportunity to travel to melbourne to document trisha and jess’ wedding day. since i have been home, people want to see pictures of my trip, to see melbourne through my lens and hear all about australia, but i didn’t carry my camera with me while i spent countless hours memorising the city by foot. i took advantage of the child-free time to have my hands free and head free of any occupying thought other than “where does this alley go…”
so these are my australia pictures. melbourne provided the perfect colourful backgrounds, gorgeous flora, glittery light and lingering sunset. my trip memories are rooted around the two wonderful families who i was blessed to work with. both families are very close and it was beautiful and emotional to watch them both give away a child, and at the same time welcome one into their fold. and for me that’s more precious than pictures of streets and buildings.
