Boyup Brook Lifestyle Family Photography | Michelle Wrighton

As a lifestyle family, children and pet portrait photographer, I find it is helpful to know a little about the people and pets I photograph, their personalities and unique traits.  This is why I have a questionnaire for my clients to fill in before their session - the answers also help me to plan and customise the experience to suit my clients individual needs. In preparation for their recent family photography session, mum, Estelle, told me that some of...

Vanity hurts less than regret – we need to exist in photographs

After over a decade of living with a debilitating illness that was frequently life threatening, a rare type of tumour, an IPMN, had been discovered on his pancreas which is one of the most...

Those experiences didn’t dampen my enthusiasm or love of photography, but they certainly coloured my...

Balingup Medieval Carnivale 2017

Even though we live in the south west, this weekend was the first time I have gone to the Balingup Medieval Carnivale, and wow was it everything that I expected and more! The atmosphere was amazing with the majority of visitors also wearing period costume, so with being surrounded by knights and ladies, kings and queens, vikings, wizards and the odd dragon or two it was very easy to feel like you had just stepped back in time.  The...
