Ninja Warriors NSW

Having had the pleasure of photographing the NSW Ninja League Competition this November has been so much fun.
The pace of the course was very quick.
A number of different obstacles plus a number of areas I too had to move to in order to get a great shot of these athletes.
I hope that you like these photographs as much as I do.
They have been edited in such a way to show the strength required to accomplish overcoming these obstacles that take their toll on ones grip strength.

The competition was held at the Obstacle Course Racing School based on the Central Coast.

A moment in time.
Having someone there to capture that beautiful moment where a promise is made in front of witnesses – as the couple journey together into a lifelong union.

Months of planning come together for this special celebration.
Love that the couple share through the good and back times with the wonderful support and wisdom given to help them through the journey they are to embark on.

My dear mother unlike any other,

You taught me how to walk,
And you taught me how to talk.
You provided a roof over my head,
And always made sure I was feed.

You taught me morals and standards,
The meanings of living and all about giving.
What a wonderful, beautiful, thoughtful intelligent mother I have,
And you make me truly glad.

You always go out of your way for everyone each day.
You always listen to what I say even if I’m having a bad day.
Whenever I’ve had issues
You have always been my tissues.

You always hugged me tight
And loved me with all your might.
You were always there for me when I needed someone.
I’m so very thankful to have a mother like you,
With your kindness and all that you do.

All these words are perfectly true,
And mother, I love you.
You are a mother unlike any other.
A little poem I wrote for you to let you know
I love you and appreciate you every day
In every single way.

Hannalise Paris Photography – Portraiture

A moment in time captured forever.
To exist in photographs for yourself and for your loved ones is so important.
In that moment you may not think so but as yo change and grow you will reflect back over the last 5, 10 even 20 years and all hold individual memories.
Getting portraits done every couple of years is so important.
Some people say that they will do it when they lose weight or give some other excuse,
Knowing from personal experience having portraits done regularly shows your journey.
Your journey is yours and no one else has walked it, you have gone through highs and lows, learned a great deal.
Time to document you.
Time to exist in beautiful photographs and capture your journey because you are worth it, in every season of life.



Acting is a field were there is a lot of competition with many people chasing after the same role it is important to stand out.
Making sure you have a portfolio that supports a variety of different looks is your first step to being picked out over the actor next to you.
Let’s create a variety of looks so you can have a strong portfolio.
The size of the portfolio is totally up to you.

Rachael – maternity shoot

Rachaels Story –

At the end of 2012 I met a young handsome farmer by the name of Alexander. I’d not long gotten out of a relationship and wasn’t ready for another and he told me “that’s okay” as he just wanted to be friends.

At the beginning of 2013 he had swept me off my feet! I was astounded by the gentle and caring man that he was and on January 5th when he asked me for the 1000th time to be his girlfriend I finally agreed! This would all be thrown into limbo when on January 26th I decided I would move to Wanaaring, 200kms west of Bourke to work for a remote educational service. Through this however he stuck by me, calling every night to talk, sending messages via the wifi since there was no phone service out their and spending every school holidays together when I would go back to the New England for my breaks.

It wasn’t until November 20th of 2013 that my love grew for him even more when he drove from Bendemeer NSW to Bourke NSW late one night and into the early morning to pick me up after I left my job in the outback quite abruptly. I didn’t have a vehicle while working out west, only the work vehicle which I had to leave behind.

From here we decided on the drive home to move in together and give us a real shot! Little did I know what he had planned.

On December 20th 2013 he decided to take me for an early birthday dinner at the spot we first went on a date to nearly 12 months earlier. A gorgeous little cafe in Uralla that’s part second hand book shop and cafe all in one! I was sent outside for half an hour while he got my birthday present organised and was told to not come inside under any circumstances until told to do so. I was eventually allowed back inside and found a yellow Manila envelope with my name on it. The envelope followed me everywhere I went for the afternoon! We eventually arrived at my parents, we had planned to stay there for the night so we could both have a drink or two. We went to town for our date and the entree came out, I asked if I was allowed to open the envelope yet but he said not until dessert, I’m not very good with surprises. I quickly ate my entree and my main and alas, dessert arrived! I was handed the yellow Manila envelope and opened it with so much excitement only to find 4 pieces of blank red paper. I looked up at him to ask what was going on when he was holding a ring in his hand and asked me to marry him! I of course said yes!!!!

12 months of busy planning and on December 6th of 2014 we were married at the Catholic Church in Uralla followed by a lovely reception at Mcrossins mill museum also in Uralla.

We decided after the wedding to try falling pregnant despite me having suspected endometriosis. In August we found out we were expecting! It was the most exciting time! Over Christmas I decided to go and visit a dear friend of mine Hannalise on the central coast and spent a few days with her incredible family and two gorgeous children. During my stay she asked if I would like some photos taken with my bump, I of course said yes! She took took me to a few amazing locations, one of my favourites being by the side of the road with some cattle in the background. The sun was just beginning to set and being from the land this back drop with the cattle in the Back ground made for images I’ll never forget.

On May 16th 2016 we welcomed our beautiful little girl Grace Lillian Laurie into the world! She was 7 pound and 11 ounces. Looking back on the images Hannalise took I cannot believe my belly was ever that big! The photos are something I will treasure forever and when Grace is old enough I will be able to share them with her.

Maternity Photos

I had the beautiful opportunity of heading to Armidale to photograph a beautiful couple in a very special stage of their life.
They are very soon due to have a little baby and doing a maternity shoot to capture this short season before they become a little family of 3 was such an honour.
It was a lot of fun working together to achieve the photos.
I employed the help of Lisa’s husband to help flick the fabric and in the end we got such a beautiful photograph showing the beautiful Lisa and her baby bump.
This weekend I will be delivering this photographs printed and ready for framing.
I love seeing work printed.
Here are the photographs from the session.

Film Noir Beauty

Recently I have been enjoying photographing in this beautiful style.
It is so simple, beautiful and the way it evokes emotion is amazing.
These images for me are a form of being empowered to express emotion, elegance, as well as the allure of the feminine body and the way it can be used to express oneself.
All photographed using natural light in my home studio in Jilliby on the NSW Central Coast.
A simple set up and a wonderful
