If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams, and you will always look lovely”

~Roald Dahl

It was an honour for me to capture the wonderful Peta Nikel, and her beautiful family, all the way from Tasmania, at St Kilda Beach recently. And I have to say, that sometimes a family strikes me as, well, extra particularly lovely.

I am now solely shooting film for all family, maternity, child, baby and newborn sessions. I hope my clients will love it as much as I do.

One hundred thankyous to this lovely family for allowing me to capture this next stage of their wonderful lives. So precious to be able to return to the same families year on year, to watch them grow, in centimetres, and in love.

“I can’t say when you’ll get love or how you’ll find it or even promise you that you will. I can only say you are worthy of it and that it’s never too much to ask for it and that it’s not crazy to fear you’ll never have it again, even though your fears are probably wrong. Love is our essential nutrient. Without it, life has little meaning. It’s the best thing we have to give and the most valuable thing we receive. It’s worthy of all the hullabaloo.”

A love story | melbourne family photography

Every family is a love story. No matter what else a particular family might be, there is at its heart that one truth.

And there seems to me to be something about film photography which is able to grasp on the very atoms of that love, the tiniest extraordinary threads of it, and hold each up to the light as if to say; thankyou.


I love film. I don’t know what it is yet, but I’m going to have some fun chasing it.


A big thankyou to the Matthews Family, who generously allowed me to experiment with them  earlier this year, with my slightly unwieldy Contax 645 medium format camera, half a dozen rolls of film, and totally nervous butterfingers.
