Captivated By Expectations web Copyright Reimagined ImagesCaptivated By Expectations web Copyright Reimagined ImagesThis image grew from a feeling someone close to me experienced and expressed to me, it reminded me of how at times in my life I was held captivated by an expectation of someone, something or an event and it cost me the enjoyment of that moment or person. This image is a reminder that what you hold onto in your heart will become part of you, holding onto failed expectations will mean that is what sits in your heart, if you allow yourself to hold onto the actual moments, goodness and life around you then that is what will grow and become part of you. Well that is from my experience and I can say with some real perspective and experience that it is a lifechanging mindset to allow failed expectations to fall through your fingers and to instead hold onto the real, authentic love around you instead, or better yet allowing expectations to fall away and to hold an open heart to the natural possibilities that will grow from the love and life around you can be even more amazing and life changing.

Im back baby! My books are open for Wedding Photography in 2024

The shutter clicks anew as I announce the reopening of my books to capture the timeless moments of your special day. Weddings are like culinary masterpieces – a perfect blend of ingredients, timing, and expertise. Let me craft a visual narrative that tells your love story in a way that's as unique as the bond you share.

If you would like to have a little bopeep at my packages for 2024 just click here and you will be taken to all the wordy goodness that explains what you get in each package.

My philosophy with wedding is: "It's not my day, and it's not my photoshoot. I'm just here to capture the natural romance, connection, and downright fun as your day unfolds. It's about you two, not me doing a solo performance." Think of me as the stealthy director, popping up when needed to guide those perfect photo moments without stealing the show"


"Photography is like freezing a moment that becomes your history. How cool is that?" - you can quote me on that!


So, if you want your wedding documented with a touch of whimsy, a plenty of professionalism from years of experience, and a whole lot of heart, then I am your happily-ever-after photographer! CONTACT ME HERE
 

 

A Trio of Mana ~ Surface Patterns:

Tainted Mana 1.3Tainted Mana 1.3Embracing Control and Serendipity As I craft these patterns, there's a dance between control and serendipity. Some days, I meticulously guide every element, while on others, I let the creative winds carry me. It's a bit like a chemical experiment, where the process is known, but the result always carries a hint of nature's unpredictability. That's the beauty of it! Beyond Paper - Think Fabrics While my surface patterns look amazing on paper, they have the potential to transform fabrics into works of art as well. Whether it's for commercial use or personal projects, these designs have endless possibilities.     Tainted Mana 3.3Tainted Mana 3.3 Embracing Control and Serendipity As I craft these patterns, there's a dance between control and serendipity.

A little visual delight via my Mindful Photography Practice:

Pause, breathe, and immerse yourself in the art of mindful photography. Classes are gearing up to commence soon, offering a space where capturing moments becomes a meditative practice. It's a recipe for inner peace, blending the art of seeing with the mindfulness of being.

"For me the art of mindful photography was about being at peace, finding a way to be in a world that is so big and full in a way that feels calm and in the moment. For you it may be about slowing down, or reconnecting to yourself or maybe it’s a way to skill build in your photography journey."

This image was taken while out and about with the crew getting a coffee, when I remember to take my camera on such outings I always find something to rest my lens on for a few seconds of calm creativity. This was taken at Blackfish Coffee in PMQ

This image was taken from our backyard, there was something about the rounded form of the bird singing his song on the rounded yet very straight formed tv aerial with the dark and moody clouds with pops of bright colour behind it that just held me for a little while - so I took a photo of it, there is plenty of mindful photography to be found in your back yard.

This was taken at my Dads farm, we were up there having a BBQ and the chatter and excitement can sometime be a bit much for me so I grabbed my camera and took a few moments to just chill out through my lens, the backlight hitting this little flower that was way up the top of the tree was so angelic I just had to breath with it for a little bit.

 

Something about Me:

Who's the culinary artist behind this visual feast? That would be me – Cherie Morton. With a passion for blending pixels and capturing moments, I find joy in creating art that resonates. Join me in this visual journey, where every frame is a brushstroke on the canvas of life.

This quote pretty much sums up a huge part of photography for me: “To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
— Elliott Erwitt

 

Let "Visual Serendipity" be your guide through a world where art, photography, and mindfulness intertwine, creating a harmonious symphony of creativity. Stay tuned for updates, classes, and a continual exploration of the beauty that surrounds us. Cheers to the art of seeing and the joy of creating!
