Foodie.... well, I do like to eat it, style it, photograph it (not in that order)
On Saturday I took my youngest babe out... we hit the shops (actually we spent 4 hours in and around Fyshwick ACT) *postoffice *Canberra Outlet Centre (Freedom Furniture) * Sportsmans warehouse *Officeworks *Fyshwick Fresh Food Markets.
I was fantastically surprised by my 9 year olds enthusiasm to product and food styling... perhaps it stems from all the youtube she watches? or that she has creative genes? or that she really likes spending my money on props and yummy treats (for the photos of course!)
Here are the results of our tiresome shopping (jokes, I love shopping!)
Currently for sale.... Personally I would LOVE a pool central and surrounded by my house!
Im always happy when I get to a shoot and the house belongs to an interior designer!
Another beautiful human is Jess De Rome of De Rome Architects! This talented woman (roar) lead me to a gorgeous home she worked on in O'Connor Canberra.... Thank you to Ilea + Conrad + their two little ladies for letting me into your home to photograph it.
I was on the scout for beautiful homes / spaces to photograph... for myself, my creative needs... for my business and for satisfying my goals.
Rob was kind enough to meet with me, listen to my ideas and offer me spaces to shoot.... one of them being 'The Box House'.
This beauty is set within a rural backdrop... designed with minimal impact on the environment, built within a natural clearing on the property. The box house is a two storey rectangular box form designed on a single longitudinal axis.
Not only is the design outstanding, but the furnishings compliment, even enhance the home. I really, really enjoyed shooting this space!
There is a story here... more than just four walls with styled furniture.
This is how I like to shoot, I get excited working with beautiful spaces and adding 'talent' to the images... creating movement, flow, personality.
I have needed a moment. A moment for reflection, growth, a moment for self.
I needed to redirect my energy from last year, change that energy and place it gently and peacefully into this new year... a year for hope and more moments of self.
I will be present in my mind and listen to my body, I will take time to breathe, to swim and pray to mother nature.
To feel gratitude and nurture my creative needs.
I will be the woman of strength, love and passion for my babes.
This fun pic is of my youngest love.... embracing the peace that lays beneath.
Some..... of my favourites from 2017. x
Architecture, movement, lifestyle, joy of house.... all of the things I like to include in my photoshoots.

Are you after a photograph that represents your professional self + your real life personality!?

We live in (or near) Canberra right?....... so, there is great need to hibernate for the loooong winter months. #Ihatethecold!!! anyway, on a more positive note this does lend itself to in-home lifestyle shoots! (which I love!) because I love warm homes... and their families.
These two little firecrackers and their beautiful Muma (I'm biased bacause Muma is my long time bestie from school!) opened their arms, hearts and wildness to my camera and I. (Love you gals)
Always a mixture of emotions when entering your art into any competition... especially the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers State awards. ACT + NSW go up together to compete for titles, points and recognition.
Last year I was awarded a gold for one of my commercial prints taken at the VIBE hotel here in Canberra. This year I won a silver for one of my Landscape images shown below.

Commercial photography is a different ball game. You need to be precise, accurate, you need the perfect lighting, the right level of technical skill, you need to know your gear inside out. Lifestyle photography is where you allow yourself to break all these rules and capture the emotion of a scene. I like to combine both practices when the opportunity arises. These images are for Home. By Holly.
I have a real need to be different.... a need to stand out in the world of photography. It makes creating art so much more fun!
Parenting, motherhood, baby growing, nurturing, teaching, loving.... all that. What a joy. Never to take for granted. A lifetime guarantee of crazy, unconditional, fierce, deep deep LOVE.
When I was growing my first babe, I remember feeling like I've got this... I'm an earth Muma, let me take it in all its glory. I felt the calling, that primitive calling to make babies. So, I did (we did). I was blessed... so blessed. But I'm a private lady, so thats all your going to get about me for now.
This photoshoot was really lovely, really peaceful and full of real giggles and sparkles from Mum + Dad. Im excited for them, I know that they are going to show their new bundle loads of adventure, the real wordly type. Lucky little one!
As you know, I could go on, and on, and ooooon about how much I love homes with quirk, style, feels, mood...... how much I love architecture, light falling into rooms, beautiful and unique styling, old and new furnishings matched (or not) just because the home owner 'feels' it.
I want to sit in these homes, hear stories, feel the vibes.... then I want to take beautiful artistic photos in them. just like I did for this gorg house in Coombs ACT.
If you own, rent or have a friend with 'house style'... let me know NOW.......... (please).
