The Corbett Family 

Photographs.  One of the few things that become more and more treasured with every single day that passes.

I have been photographing this gorgeous family for a number of years and they are one of the sweetest you will ever meet! So special to photograph them at their own home, which happens to be a gorgeous property!

 

Some film photographs:

One of my very favourite things in life, is hanging out with beautiful families during the golden hour – especially when they are families I watched be created from the beginning.  I photographed Julie and Rhys’s wedding day a number of years ago and again, when their first born Ila was a toddler.  Even though newest addition Benjamin wasn’t to sure about this photo gig, he sure is adorable!

Thanks Julie and Rhys as always x

Sarah and Luke | Cedar Galleries Wedding

Sarah and Luke Critchley

Friday 10th July, 2015

It was a rainy winters day but when you plan a wedding that is all about the marriage, and not the wedding, a bit of grey cloud and rain doesn’t change the emotionally charged happiness of the events that make up a wedding day.

Sarah and Luke’s simplistic wedding, was from the start, one full of happy tears and excitement for the happy couple and all of their guests.  The Ceremony took place at Cedar Galleries, in the wooden Chapel with the stained glass window and Sarah and Luke and their Pug Dogs, stood together as celebrant, Roy Taylor, led the couple through their I Do’s.

There is no doubt that Luke, lost his breathe, seeing Sarah come towards him and his look of love and pure attentiveness towards his bride, continued for the rest of the day – it was so gorgeous to watch <3

Thank you Sarah and Luke, Sam and I had a wonderful day with you and your guests!

WA EPSON Professional Photography Awards | AIPP

WA EPSON Professional Photography Awards | AIPP

10 silver awards and 1 gold award

Last week was completely crazy to me!  Every year, each state, has the AIPP Photography Awards, where photographers have printed up to 12 of their images, which are placed in front of a panel of 5 judges – and given a score.

My reasons for entering awards like these, is more of a mission of self improvement.  Clients friends and family always are there supporting me and praising work, but to have 5 industry peers, who don’t know you, give honest critique is really the number one reason to put images out there to get hammered.

Massive thanks to Paul Jarvis at Perth Pro Lab for guiding me through the printing stage – I trusted Paul completely with his suggestions for paper types (honestly, printing images is an art form in itself – so may different results depending on your choices) without Paul’s expert services, these images wouldn’t have looked so lovely in print!

More than thrilled to have to have received awards for 11/12 of my prints – 10 Silver Awards and 1 Gold award

Here is a look at my entries, I wish the web did justice to the prints – but it never does!

 

 

Family Category

Images entered in this category must have been taken on paid photo shoots – I love this category the most because it is made up of entries of real work photographers are creating for their clients every day! Because of this, I was super excited to get 4 silver awards

Silver Award - Kellie Blinco PhotographySilver – 83
Silver Award - Kellie Blinco PhotographySilver – 81Silver Award - Kellie Blinco PhotographySilver – 83

Travel Category 
Silver Award - Kellie Blinco PhotographyThis image was also entered into to the national awards (APPA) last year, and it actually did better there , with a silver distinction at 88. It is one of my favourite images, if you look at the person under the tarp on the end of the boat you can see their hand poking out – all the small details in this print tell such a wonderful story. It scored a silver 82.
Silver Award - Kellie Blinco PhotographySilver – 81 Silver Award - Kellie Blinco PhotographySilver – 84

Portrait Category – Images entered in this category can be commissioned or noncommissioned work
Silver Award - Kellie Blinco PhotographySilver – 8o
Silver Award - Kellie Blinco PhotographySilver – 81

Gold Award – Portrait Category 

Lastly – but definitely not least, I was shocked to have been awarded a Gold Award. It is something I never thought I would ever be able to achieve! Even if this image did not score well, It will always be one of the most important images I have ever taken.  The model (who wishes to remain nameless so please, if you do know her, respect her wishes) is one of the bravest people I have ever met.  She tells me, the images I took of her, made her see how sick she was and helped save her life.

When I entered this, I was full of fear I hadn’t done a good enough job, telling the story.  I was worried the way I lit the images and the choices I made in creating this, wouldn’t be understood.  When the judges were talking about my image and their interpretations were coming out as if I had written them down for them to read out, I was really happy that my vision was easily told through the photograph.

The image is a portrait of the body and the disease anorexia – highlighting the spine.  The unnamed subject, is hiding her face, in the darkness, representing her shame and her fear.  Her body language with her hands in bound together position is telling the story of how she was living her life and destroying her body, her hands felt tied while she was suffering this disease but she didn’t know any other way.

More Film Practice!

More Film Practice!

Some more film play!  Please excuse the cheesy smiles and or the unenthused faces of my children that had to be paid in McDonalds to let me practice!

 

I had fun, even if they didnt!  I used a mix of portra 400 and fuji400H for these shots.

Really loving more and more the look of beautiful film.  Its hard to get across in digital format just how much more film looks and feels like reality.  The texture and colours are so exciting and not spending time in lightroom to get them to look the way I want them to look is really so great!

Ben and Chantelle |Vintage Romance

Ben and Chantelle | Vintage Romance

It is an absolute crime against this website – that Ben and Chantelle’s gorgeous vintage wedding from a few years back has not appeared here!  I am not sure why it hadn’t made it here – perhaps my website was under renovation and as times ticks by the “to do” list spirals out of control .

But now I have some spare time, and working on adding a lot of things that haven’t been added before.  This wedding was featured on Polka Dot Bride and all Chantelle’s hard work and good taste with her planning was recognised.

Shooting a wedding of another photographer, is a little bit scary to be quite honest! I mean I freak all the time with clients, hoping I have been able to give them exactly what they wanted – but when it’s a photographer, it compounds that fear by 10!

Chantelle made it so easy for me to take beautiful photographs, her ceremony lighting was perfection and could have only been chosen by another photographer.  Her attention to details and beautiful planning made her wedding a wonderful one for me to shoot and still years later is one of my favourites!

Apart from all the gorgeousness – It was a wonderful day and it was full of emotion.  You could tell that Chantelle was marrying the man of her dreams and you could see Ben truly must have felt like he was the luckiest man in the world

Thank you Mr and Mrs Stagg for choosing me to photograph your most special of days

Sally and Cam | Couples Photography

This gorgeous couple, Sally and Cam, came and had some portraits taken.  Between me and them the schedule movement was non existent so when the winds were cyclonic, even they we both wanted to, we just couldn’t reschedule!

You can’t see in the images, but the balloons were blowing around at a hundred miles and hours and we had to shoot with the wind to make sure Sally’s hair stayed under control!  Both Sally and Cam were so easy to work with, their love for one another just shines through!

They both have the playful and fun personalities and I hope I was able to capture the romance and their cheekier side too!  Thanks so much Sally and Cam x

Ava-Grace | Perth newborn photographer

Ava-Grace | Time with Mum

I had all but decided, I wanted out of newborn photography, but then Gemma introduced me to her beautiful little Ava-Grace.

I had been offering the popular style of newborn photography in my studio for the last 7 years, but this year as I have a little time out from shooting, I have been able to determine, that while i think the posed shots with the cute props are ADORABLE and some of my most admired friends and peers do this style so well, it isn’t what I personally want to do anymore with newborns.

Now my kids are older, I look back and what I really would have loved is some images like the ones I have attempted for Gemma – free of props and unnatural posing, just real smiles and looks of adoration.  Its all about how an image makes you feel.  I hope one day when Ava-Grace is grown, Gemma will be able to pick up these images, hold them in her hand and remember, exactly how she felt, in the fleeting moments that Ava-Grace was new to the world
