Had the best time in Hervey Bay on the weekend visiting my old stomping ground and photographing the wedding of these two gorgeous lovebirds ❤️

I know it sounds rather cliched but watching these two together - how they lovingly interact with each other, how they parent their own kids, how they speak to their parents and family, makes me feel so blessed that I got to have a day with them and document their beautiful wedding day.

Ash and Alex, Here’s wishing you both a lifetime of happiness, joy and love.

❤️ Sharon x

As a photographer it’s my ‘job’ to capture little moments in time at the click of a shutter button.

My ultimate goal is to document real-life moments which not only bring smiles and giggles from those I’m photographing, but to also ensure I’m capturing little love-filled moments like this one.

I’ve said it repeatedly that I am not your average photographer and I turn up to a shoot ready to capture real and natural moments that YOU create. The love in this mummy’s eyes couldn’t be ‘posed’. I think I nailed my own expectations here and that was to capture love.

Thankyou Mrs M for not only being a wonderful mummy, wife and cherished member of your community, but also from the bottom of my heart, Thankyou for bringing a ‘nailed-it’ smile to my face!

You bloody rock!

I had such a great afternoon photographing this little guy and his beautiful parents a few days ago up at Mount Perry. Such a fun afternoon in the afternoon sunshine

Sometimes all it takes is a little hand reaching for yours, to remind you that these are without doubt, the best years of your life.

Motherhood... It’s the greatest blessing of all

Is it time to update your family photos?

The importance of family photo’s! 🥰

I captured this pic of this beautiful mumma while she and her little princess were having a quiet loving moment in between shots.
❤️
It’s hard to believe this little cherub was super shy and wasn’t comfortable in front of the camera.... until ‘miss Sharon’ stepped in! 📸

These guys here ⬆️⬆️ are absolute superstars!

We hiked around their family farm for a couple fo hours in the beautiful afternoon light to capture beautiful images like this one and they were just awesome!

Every single one of these guys just did what I asked, the older kids helped the little kids with climbing and posing and behaving and this here is one of the many hundreds of images we were able to capture! 📸

I know I’ve said it before but geez I love what I do!

My family sessions are filling up fast and with Christmas around the corner, now is a good time to secure your family session.. family photos always make for beautiful Christmas gifts so get in touch if you’d like to book your SDP family session.
I stop shooting on November 25 this year and won’t be back until January 2021

Yesterday was my ‘21st’...
my 21st year of being a sworn & operational police officer!

I’ve wanted to be a ‘copper’ since I was about 7 years old and I’ve told my story multiple times about the day a big burley male sergeant and petite female officer (complete with high heels and stockings) visited my school to give a safety house talk to my unsuspecting peers..

For those I haven’t told this story to before...

I remember sitting on the story-time at school rug and looking up at this sergeant in awe, with his shiny silver badge number pinned to his chest, his gun on his hip, his leather utility belt, and his shiny boots.. I feared him but listened eagerly as he taught us tiny kids about the dangers of accepting lifts from strangers and how to identify a safety house symbol.

I knew that day that I wanted to be just like him. I remember I went home and told my mum I wanted to be a policeman 😂

Now....All these years later, I wish I could meet that sergeant, shake his hand and tell him just how much he inspired me to be the person I am today...

Every day when my school bus passed the Granville Police station in Sydney, I’d reminisce and think about myself walking the beat and wearing that blue uniform with pride...

Even at that very young age I knew what I wanted & I don’t regret ever joining
‘the job’ 👮🏻‍♀️👮🏻‍♀️

This guy here ⬆️⬆️ in the photo is my beautiful dad..
He, my mum and my grandparents were my number one supporters and they constantly encouraged me to chase my dreams.. and chased them I did!! 🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻‍♀️

Dad passed away unexpectedly just 3 months after this photo was taken. It’s mine (& I’m sure his) proudest moment and I’m so grateful we were able to share this moment. It was just after I signed my oath of service and was sworn in as a police officer🙌🏻

I hope you are proud of me daddy-oh. You are never far from my thoughts and forever in my heart and I miss you Oggy Doggy Daddy
Happy anniversary to me ❤️

Today, this is me... Editing a beautiful country family session where all 16 members of this amazing family went with the flow and helped me to achieve some stunning images of their afternoon on their sugar cane farm.

I know I’ve said it before but I feel so blessed to be able to do the two ‘jobs’ I absolutely love. 👮🏻‍♀️❤️📸

Oh and remember my amazing assistant I always talk about?? Yesterday’s session confirmed to me that I’d be bloody lost without her! My ‘assistant’ friend @nadiamaragna - that girl can crack a whip when needed! -Thankyou as always Nadia for using your big-girl voice & setting up shots for our session! (you hustler!)

Sibling love ❤️

Hold my hand big brother and show me the way....

I’m not the kind of girl who just turns up and photographs families smiling at the camera... for me it’s about capturing real moments, real-time interaction and the pure love of my subjects!

I’m so happy I was able to travel to #yeppoon for this awesome family session..

when was the last time you had family photos taken? Is it time for an update ?
Get in touch - I’d be happy to come along and document your lovely family!
