An Australian Christmas is unique to most parts of the world. Although everything is decorated in motifs of snowflakes and people in furry coats we here Down Under swelter! Today is 34 degrees c (96.8 f) so we popped on the air conditioner and dusted off the decs. Due to end of year fatigue, my littlest was already sound asleep as these two elves decorated to their heart’s content. Rather than getting out the tree, they decided to bedazzle this cane bookshelf I rescued from the roadside rubbish recently! Is there nothing fairy lights can’t make magic?! *Image take with my Pixel phone.

A little bit about Briony:
Briony is a Brisbane based documentary family photographer. For Briony, family photography is all about authenticity. She is fascinated by the real, the beauty in the ‘ordinary’ and the dynamics between family members. Briony does not pose or even direct, but will simply document families in their home environment, giving them a priceless storybook of where their life as it is, right now.
I will also be talking about my love for the mirrorless FujiFilm X series cameras and how they are perfect for this genre.
BONUS: You’ll see me flapping my hands around as shown in this photo taken at the last CameraPro event, by Misty Norman.

Documentary family photography is also just about recording ‘ this moment’. It doesn’t need to be particularly thrilling or interesting. It just is ‘right now’. I don’t always have my trusty Fuji Xt3 camera with me but I always have my Google Pixel
Tuesdays are our busiest day. After
Me: Does everyone have their cozzies on, dry undies and karate clothes and belt in the bag, goggles? towel?
Me: Are you sure? Everything: jacket, pants, belt, undies, goggles?
Everyone: Races to pool, does lessons, gets changed in the car park, back in the car…..
Us arriving at Karate in a 38 degree hot sweat… (yesterday was truly disgusting in Brisbane!)
Max: Mum, where’s my karate jacket……. ?
Me: eye-fricking-roll, leaves 2 in class, drives home with small 1/2 naked boy, returns with
Some days are just like that aren’t they?
If you’re wanting to learn more about your own smart phone or to get a better understanding of how your DSLR camera works, I run one-on-one private tuition and small group sessions. You don’t need any fancy equipment, it’s just about using what you’ve got and learning to see light and angles to tell your family’s story. They’re so much fun. Group booking discounts and add-on documentary family sessions are available.
