Paige {year 12}

The final stop on the year 12 mini session blogging list is Paige. A huge thank you these four beautiful girls for coming along for a mini session. These sessions are a great way to get some relaxed portraits before the end of school and heading out into the big wide world – for many, it may be the last professional photo session until they marry! If you or someone you know is interested, drop me a line for more info – rachel{at}



Annie-Jane {year 12 2012}

I had the chance to meet up with an awesome group of girls a few weeks back for the first round of year 12 mini-sessions for 2012, and we played around with some fun locations and ideas. I’m finally getting around to blogging them! This first set is from Annie Jane’s session, where we had fun incorporating her love of ballet into the shoot.


More to come soon! {waiting list is now open for May/June mini sessions – for more information, email}

{class of 2011} :: {grace}

I got to hang with Grace on Saturday. We laughed, we chatted. We talked about school and work and the future. In between, we shot some photos.


Grace’s session was part of my mini-sessions project. For Year 12 students, a mini-session package is a great way to mark the milestone that is finishing school, and is often the last lot of professional portraits you may get taken before getting married. What a great way to start off your post-school life! I will be regularly running sessions throughout 2011 in Inverell, and am also happy to travel to Glen Innes, Moree, Tenterfield and throughout the Northern NSW/New England area. The next round of mini-sessions will be held on Wednesday, April 13 (the first Wednesday of the school holidays). For full details and scheduled dates, email rachel{at} or follow me on Facebook.


On an overcast Saturday morning in early October, I gathered my things, and headed out to meet Heidi for her Class of 2010 Mini-session – my last one before meeting our third baby (more to come on that later!).

We had a lovely time hanging out – Heidi was a natural in front of the camera, and we got some lovely images. I had a hard time picking my favourite to blog, luckily I’ve already done a Facebook post, so could share a different one here!


To see the final result, keep an eye on the blog – I have a post in the works to show some of the funky cards from this year’s mini-sessions.

(For Year12 students in Inverell, I will be running more mini-sessions in late November/early December. To find out more, email me at rachel[at], and you’ll be the first in the know once dates are finalised. Mini-sessions in Glen Innes, Moree and other locations are subject to minimum numbers – email me at the above email address and we’ll see what we can line up!)

Seniors 2010

On Saturday, we finally had a break in the rain, and just in time – I was due to meet up with a couple of super-cute year twelve students to shoot their seniors mini-sessions. Caitlin and Casey were so much fun to shoot, I think I laughed the entire time!

A sneak peek of what we came up with:

Year 12 Class of 2010 portrait mini sessions Mini portrait sessions for year 12 students - great gift idea!

The next round of mini-sessions will be held in Inverell on September 18. For more information, or to register, you can reach me by email at rachel[at], or by phone on 0404 009 468.

(Not in Inverell? Don’t be shy, drop me an email and we’ll see if we can set something up in your area!).

Jasmine :: Year 12 Mini-Session

I recently met up with Jasmine for a quick portrait mini-session as part of my year 12 student promotion, and knocked out some pretty cool urban-style portraits.

{as an aside, if you are in year 12 & are interested in a mini-session, the next round is happening on October 7, in various locations around Inverell. Email me at rachel[at] for more info or to make a booking. Year 11 students, I’m now taking a waiting list for early next year! These sessions are lots of fun, and I also offer gift vouchers if you are looking for the perfect gift for a student finishing year 12.}
