Honoring this beautiful man today. Bruce I only knew you briefly and yet I feel I know you so much more through your family, especially your Megsy. What a truly amazing kind special daughter.  I had met Megs whilst buying some new kitchen equipment and she looked after me so beautifully so I asked if I could please do some updated family photos for her. Initially she had said no don't worry and then I saw through Facebook that her dear dad was unwell.  And above is one of the most precious memories now created.  I really want to acknowledge one of the kindest loving person I have ever met in Megs. Truly !!!!

Meet Jack, poser extraordinaire! Everything this little newborn did at his photo shoot was just too sweet and so perfect. His Mum is a natural in front of the camera, very relaxed, having been a Dancing Teacher and running her own dance studio with over 200 students! I really loved the moments captured between Mum and bubs as Mums are usually the memory makers, taking the photos, but often not in them. Dad was a little more shy of the camera, but the beauty of having a baby is that you are just so truly besotted and wondrous, you fall into a contentment just watching them as they lay in your arms and forget the rest of the world. So ...

We photographed this gorgeous little family on the north side of Brisbane in the month of January (which is also this little lady's middle name!). Wow, at just over two weeks old, this little newborn was super strong! She is already taking over Mum & Dad's bed - sitting up in their pillows by herself and looking so teeny tiny in Dad's arms when he scooped her up because she was just too cute and needed some daddy cuddles! They are only that small for what feels like the blink of an eye. Baby Aryah also had her Grandparents visiting her at home and it was a joy for them to see some of the cute things she was doing ...

This gorgeous Brisbane family were lucky enough to win a photographic experience in their home through the girls Kindy! We had a great afternoon together and I have never met such playful kids! These sisters were hilarious, dressed as "frozen" princesses yet running around like crazy in the front yard, testing each other's strength and spinning abilities and giggling non-stop. It's always awesome to photograph the kids running around on the grass, they are so natural and doing what they love - playing! We also had a few rounds of hide and seek in their home - the girls were very good at hiding, I can't say the same for myself, but they gave me a helping hand :) Thanks ...

We hear twins and our photographer hearts melt instantly! There is something about the special bond twins have and watching them interact together is just magic! These two are no exception :) Absolutely in tune with each other - beautiful big eyed boy Ollie loves to giggle with all of his body and likes to play rough too, yet his gorgeous sister Ally, who is very cool, calm and collected is the boss and has final say! Mum and Dad were so super relaxed, we had heaps of fun just playing on the bed, my goodness these two babies are SO fast already (what little one doesn't love to crawl around on mum and dads freshly made bed, hehe). Pretty ...

Thank you for travelling all that way to have your shoot (and design consultation all on one day) with us, hope the kids slept soundly for you all the way home xxx

From Pixel to Print - Brisbane Photographer

Home printing is easy. A click of a button and – like magic – the pretty pixels inside your computer slide out the mouth of your printer. As long as the ink hasn’t smeared, most of us won’t give the process another moment’s thought. The truth is, printing is an art in itself. Photographers have spent the best years of their lives trying to achieve continuity between their monitor (which emits light) and paper (which reflects it). The delicate nature of Katrina’s bright, high-key signature style makes this balance even trickier to achieve. The image has to “pop” without blowing out. It has to have pleasing contrast, without crushing the shadows. The white shirts need to be crisp and light, ...

We absolutely LOVE it when our families ask us to come back to their homes as their families grow and expand, this one is a little special though. Oldest son Luke, who is now 21, organise a surprise photo shoot for himself and his sisters (and we got Dad to jump in a few as well) to surprise Mum for Christmas. The last time this gorgeous Brisbane family were photographed with us, was some time ago - the kids looked so little. It was so much fun to re-create some of those moments photographed many years ago and create new memories that reflect who they have grown into, three truly lovely young adults, who I am sure their parents are ...

Turning one is such a milestone for many in the family, especially when it is your first born. This gorgeous little boy Morgan turned one the day before his photo shoot and his beautiful Mummy created a memorable day with an Indians and cowboys themed party. So when Morgan and his family came to visit us at our Brisbane photography studio he had the cutest little costume with him and Mum joined in adorning a lovely handmade headdress. What was also so special was that Morgan's Mimi & Granddad came along too - so it was smiles all round and Morgan had lots of people to play with. So much so that he fell asleep by the end of the ...

It is pretty special when you are invited to follow one couples journey through pregnancy and then to celebrate the birth of their first baby. These new Brisbane parents allowed us the wonderful honour of celebrating Mum's beautiful belly just before Christmas and then the FIRST photo shoot back for 2016 we got the meet their beautiful baby girl, Hope. She is SO adorable and has Mum's relaxed personality and Dad's gorgeous dark features. They are both besotted with her, although I'm thinking Dad's pretty proud of her as I watched him dance with his new little love to INXS "Beautiful Girl". Wish this new Brisbane family so much happiness and hoping to see you all again soon!

Good afternoon Katrina, I just wanted to thank you very much for the photo session you provided for the children at our Wooloowin Early Education Centre. The images were wonderful and really captured their smiles and the fun and enjoyment the children have at the centre, despite the journey they have had in their short lives to date. It is wonderful that they have these images and memories as they grow up and reflect on their time at our centre and for their family and cares to see the progress the little people have made is also fantastic. Thank you again for your time and support. Kind regards Tom McIntyre Regional Director - Act for Kids - Brisbane Good afternoon ...
