The Darlings #02

My second session in The Darlings series was in a gorgeous park I discovered in North Brisbane. One morning, I drove around six old favourite spots hoping to be inspired…. but over the years the plant growth had changed and I just didn’t feel they were what I was after.  I then went exploring along another park I’d photographed at once before and it was there I found the perfect spot.  This session saw me with 22 girls, a gorgeous series of garlands (from The Bloom Collective) and a bevy of doves brought along by White Wings Doves.   I was certainly exhausted by the end of the short session, but it was a lot of fun xx a gorgeous bunch of darlings!

Your brand [brisbane headshots]

In my early years of photography, I was occasionally booked to take headshots for business people. It was usually pretty stock standard with a neutral background resulting in a ‘nice’ photo of the subject. But it didn’t tell anything further and I found them a little uninspiring.  So after a few years avoiding them, I decided that I’d approach it a different way – where I found out more about who each person was and then aim to incorporate their story into their images.  I wanted to create not only a headshot, but a collection of images they could use for multiple editorial and brand development purposes.  I also opened it up to artists, designers and other creatives. And so, nowadays, I actually love my ‘headshot’ sessions! Not only because they are relaxing and personal, but also because they allow me to create a completely unique collection of images that can be used almost immediately.

If you are in need of an updated profile collection for yourself, please drop me a line and I’d love to talk.  And if you are part of the ROOOAR Community a 20% discount is yours with love. Have an amazing day.   Maddie
