Formal: Townsville Grammar School 2015

This year I had the opportunity to photograph the school formal of a lovely group of high school seniors.  This was my first formal session with more than one couple, and as such we ended up with a whole stack of photos. So that this post doesn't run too long, I've cut out the many family photos, and am just sharing a few of the photos of our three lovely formal couples.  The sun definitely did its best effort to thwart my lighting, but once the sun started to set a little, I was able to sneak

Graduation: Sherrie

Sherrie and I have been friends for around 13 years, so I was proud to be there to celebrate with her as she graduated from James Cook University.  And I can't wait to see all that she accomplishes now with her life, both professionally and as she grows even more as a person.  Congratulations Sherrie! Love these smiles! Sherrie with her very proud parents... ... And grandparents.

Formal: Melissa

I had the wonderful opportunity to take some photos of the lovely Melissa, dressed up for her school formal.  Melissa, of course, looked amazing and we got some great portraits and family photos to commemorate the occasion. One thing I particularly loved about this photo shoot was that we managed to incorporate nature, old school architecture and modern urban settings in one session, so we ended up with some great variety within the photos, and below is just a sample of what we achieved in an afternoon.

Anniversary/Races: Angela + Shane

The lovely Angela and Shane this year celebrated four years together with a day at the Townsville Cup.  Ok, the races were actually the day after their actual anniversary, but it's close enough.  I love how sophisticated they look in their races outfits, and I hope they had a great day at the races and anniversary celebration all rolled into one. Don't they both look great? Awwww.

Formal: 2013 Army Regiment Ball

It's always nice to get photos when you get dressed up, so these two decided to use the Army Regiment Ball as an excuse to get some nice photos together.  Unfortunately due to a number of circumstances, it was almost dark by the time we could get the photos.  But I made the most of what little light we had left to grab these few gems.     Aww, feel the love. These two are just too cute.

Formal: Courtney

I have known Courtney since she was probably about 3 or 4 years old, watching her grow up as the little girl down the street.  So the fact that she is now graduated from high school is both blowing my mind a little and making me start to feel a bit older.   But in all seriousness, a huge congratulations to Courtney for finishing up 12 years of school, and I know she's going to make the most of whatever she does next.  I also just have to add, Courtney's dress was amazing!  So unique and stunningly

Formal: Angela + Shane

The other day, my friends Angela and Shane came over to visit after they'd been to the races.  Being all dressed-up, they asked me to take a few quick impromptu photos of the pair of them together, so no fancy location, and just letting their fanciness shine through.  Here are a few of the photos that I ended up with, with zero advanced notice. Looking pretty as always. Feeling the love.
