Graphite Update!

So it has come to my attention - through lack of internet access I have not made any posts since the first of August!! How sad am I?
So I will give you all an update on the status of my life and the resuming of Graphite Photography in action this December.
In the last 3 months I have;
*left Townsville and embarked westward to the little"city" of Mt Isa or as the locals call it "The Isa"
*have taken over my gracious cousins house with my entourage for almost two months whilst we looked for our own house - not an easy task on his part - I do beleive he is still finding dog hair after this long, bless him
*have started a new job to pay my bills - yes I am now pouring beers at the local country club - who would've thought?
*have bought a house with my partner and am slowly bringing it out of the 18th century - peach bathroom included - no pun intended, I am serious..
*have been a bridesmaid for my beautiful cousin's wedding
*have travelled to Thailand and rode elephants in the jungle and canoed through sea caves at low tide - alot scarier than it sounds!
*driven the road to Townsville a few thousand times and have seen a lot of scenery and wildlife I probably would not have seen otherwise
*and of course as it is out here, as disgusting as it is, have sweated only a few million litres of sweat however I do not seem to be getting any thinner?
After surviving all these fetes I now have full internet access to bring me back into the world and climb back on the "with it" ladder, as hard as it seems all the way out here..
Very excited to put up the chrissy tree tomorrow and start shrinking the list of photo challenges I've missed so far!

Mystical Woodland Fairy

Had the privilege of shooting this gorgeous young-ling and her parents on Monday afternoon. What a beautiful afternoon it was to spend in the beautiful Townsville sunshine!
How cute and magical does her fairy dress look in contrast to these dark figs in the park? 
As any toddler would do in a situation like this, she spent most of the time running between the swings and the slide, but who could resist her cheeky nature and captivating giggling face.

Mermaid Magic

Yesterday I created some mythical magic with the invention of my mermaid fantasy. (Sneak Peak ^) Isn't she beautiful? I was a bit worried going into this one wondering if the scales would appear too fake as they are just fabricated with make up however I am so happy with the way they turned out! I also love her jewels which are the mermaid's mirage of barnacles - just a lot prettier ;) Cannot wait to create the retouched images and add some funky backgrounds. My model did a fantastic job, very patient and inspiring x

Little Family Love

Thought I would share a shoot I did in Brisvegas last week of a cute little family. One week before turning one, this cheeky mite knew just when we wanted him to smile and did just the opposite. Always fun working with the little ones. Lucky for poor Hamish! (the cat) who put up with her fare share of squeezing and squishing!

Park Princess

Today in the sweltering heat I met this little cutie. Spent an hour in her shoes and followed her around the park to capture her candid moments and to create some natural shots for her parents. With her cute pigtails and little red sandals we have some really great images from this shoot. Can't wait to see them all finished off.

Be MiNe!

Happy Valentine to one and all this Valentine's season! My love inspired shoot for the day. Too cute - my model today has such great features for this theme, almost doll like. With patience to boot - zero complaints about sitting for hours while I messed with her face.
Get inspired, tell someone, show someone or give something to someone that displays how much they mean to you today. It doesn't have to be Valentine's Day to spread the love!

Secret Identity

Today I worked with an up and coming model on a masked theme. I wanted to create a mysterious hidden identity through the face paint and mask combination. It was only his second ever shoot in his modelling career and good on him he was great. Something a bit different with a theme for a male fantasy shoot.

Golden Fall

Today I worked with a great model and FINALLY completed my Autumn shoot!! The set is now complete - can't wait to do my series pics and see them all together.
Autumn is blessed with golden and red trims. A fun theme to create, this shoot is easy to decifer - the images speak for themselves.
