Carly's passion is double so, as she works to bring out the passion in others! She is genuine in her desire to bring a zest for life back into the lives of her clients and express their true selves through their style.

Carly is approachable and warm, as you can see in these couple of images. To learn more and to make a very important date to transform with her, visit her website.

Beautiful and True - Greta and Rohan's wedding https://www.bakerphotography.com.au/blog/2014/11/beautiful-and-true-greta-and-rohans-wedding It's a good thing these guys are married because, over the course of the day, I fell in love with them.  Was it the boutonneires using bullet shells? The Dr Seuss vows? The all out laughs we had creating photos? Well, it was all of these and more.

If you were to take a brief look at these two from the outside, you could believe they are like chalk and cheese.  Greta is vivacious with an all-out laugh and a rare charm that could tame a lion.  Rohan is reserved, with a wicked sense of humour.  Given my priviledge to play with them through their wedding day, I can tell you, the well of feeling and love between them is very deep.  Deep enough to make me cry multiple times through the day.  One of my favourite moments was so simple, and yet it can sometimes be forgotten in the rush of the day.  Rohan ended his groom's speech with the heartfelt statement, "I love you".

And that is what weddings, in particular this one, are all about.

Here are a few pictures as a sneak preview from Greta and Rohan's wedding.

Greta and Rohan's wedding is one week away!  These two are pretty well suited to each other - as 10 years together will attest!  Their wicked sense of humour and fun is infectious and is obvious in all the best photos.  I can't wait!

Avery https://www.bakerphotography.com.au/blog/2014/9/avery We were lucky to be visited by Avery and her parents over the weekend.  I was fortunate enough to photograph Aaron and Stacey's wedding in early 2012, so it was extra special to meet their 8 week old daughter.  The biggest surprise to me was how little she was, not just as a newborn, but because Mum and Dad are both tall.  No doubt she will find her own space in the world as she grows. 

20140920-51Nose to noseI can see these two getting up to plenty of mischief together You can easily see she has a special place in Dad's heart.

Engagement shoot of two style masters https://www.bakerphotography.com.au/blog/2014/5/melbourne-engagement-shoot I recently had the pleasure of photographing Darren and Allira, two of the most stylish people I know, in celebration of their engagement.

Darren's cheekiness and Allira's quiet reserve appear a perfect match.  Their quiet moments together, the expression on their faces and their evident trust in each other, was just lovely to witness.

We really look forward to their wedding in January 2015 and wish them all the best for their preparations.

Featured photo - Sally and Kyl's wedding https://www.bakerphotography.com.au/blog/2013/10/featured-photo---sally-and-kyls-wedding Kyl and Sally This was a quiet moment where Sally and Kyl took a moment to feel how wonderful it was to be married to each other.  It was as if the photographers were not there, as they took in each other, floating on a cloud of love as the sun dropped low in the sky. 

It may not sound it, but I don't believe I've romanticised this.

Sally and Kyl were married March 15th 2013, on the beach in Sorrento.  Just family and close friends were invited to this intimate celebration - only 22 guests, including me.  It was relaxed atmosphere where their love for each other was the true focus.  What a great day with two of the most easy-going people I know. 

As I can't resist, here's a couple more shots of their beautiful day.

Bonnici Family https://www.bakerphotography.com.au/blog/2013/3/bonnici-family Friday was a perfect day for photos and I was lucky enough to be photographing the very photogenic Joe, Michelle, Olivia and Xavier at the Carlton Gardens.  It was hard to pick who was the star of the show as they were all beautiful subjects.  Olivia looked like she was made for modelling and Xavier's cheeky grins were there, despite him feeling a little off.

Amanda and Josh's engagement party https://www.bakerphotography.com.au/blog/2013/3/amanda-and-joshs-engagement-party An action-packed weekend for us at Baker Photography - an Ultimate Frisbee tournament in Geelong and an engagement party in Ballarat.

First though a quick sneak peek at the engagement party.

20130223-85 20130223-120 The party was a really relaxed and enjoyable evening hosted by the Groom's parents and surrounded by Good People.  It's easy to have a good time and so exciting to see how happy Amanda and Josh are together.  Congratulations and all the best for your future together.

Worldwide Photo Walk https://www.bakerphotography.com.au/blog/2012/11/worldwide-photo-walk Princes Theatre, Melbourne

I took part in Scott Kelby's 5th annual World Wide Photowalk in Melbourne on the 13th October.  People from all over the world congregate on that day to walk the streets and capture what they see.

The winners have now been announced, and while I didn't make it into the top photos in the world, I was put forward as the best photo from our walk here in Melbourne.

Proposal in the Park https://www.bakerphotography.com.au/blog/2012/11/proposal-in-the-park Lee and I were lucky enough to be invited along to witness (and capture) the proposal of our good friend Chris to his girlfriend Jules.  Chris had given himself the week to prepare for the event, organising key friends to come along, drinks, music, the location and timing, and dinner afterwards - and it all came off without a hitch.  He had chosen a beautiful location in Fitzroy Gardens, a place that Jules was keen to look at as a potential photoshoot location...  I don't think I'm giving anything away to say - she said Yes!

20121123-117 It was easy to see how much these two mean to each other - the big smiles, the multitude of tears (which I'm told is due to hayfever, of course) and just the way they look at each other.  I wish them all the best for their wedding and the rest of their lives together.

Gymbaroo Mitcham https://www.bakerphotography.com.au/blog/2012/11/gymbaroo-mitcham At various stages through our lives, both Lee and I have been an assistant at Gymbaroo.  It has always been a fun and precious experience for us as we played with the children - all of us learning and developing together through play.   Every personality in the room is just intriguing.

 

This weekend, we had the opportunity to take photographs at Gymbaroo in Mitcham at some specially-run classes.  I have limited myself to just 2 of my favourites.

The Halls Photoshoot https://www.bakerphotography.com.au/blog/2012/11/the-halls-photoshoot We had a fantastic time with our friends, the Halls a couple of weeks ago.  The only difficulty for Lee and I was trying to decide which beautiful family member to photograph next. 

Almost exactly 6 years ago, we were lucky enough to attend Rhian and Ben's wedding ceremony in regional Victoria.  Plus 4 years ago, they attended our wedding! Just two days after that Rhian was in hospital awaiting the early arrival of Chloe and Madison - so our connection goes back a long way.  Only lately have we gotten to know Madison and Chloe.  Madison (not Maddie, as I had thought) loves to be near people and Chloe loves to explore on her own, and both girls have picked up a stubborn streak - although we didn't see any of that this time. Chloe, Ben and Madison20121027-13

We had a great morning playing in the park - climbing equipment, playing hide and seek, climbing trees, lots of cuddles, and spinning - and luckily the rain held off!  We captured some beautiful images - so thanks to Rhian, Benji, Chloe and Madison for their time and fun.

In the beginning... https://www.bakerphotography.com.au/blog/2012/11/in-the-beginning At last our website is live!  After trialling multiple versions I think we've landed a beauty.  Many thanks to in-house technical support (and husband) Lee for his expertise.

My passion for photography started with taking photos of the sport I love, Ultimate Frisbee (yes, it's a sport).  It developed as we travelled the world, and photos became the only souveniers we allowed ourselves to take home.  Luckily for me, Lee picked up the (shutter)bug too.  Without noticing, my photos became about people and capturing great photos in their everyday.  I tend to take my camera everywhere!

I'm just so excited to start this new adventure - Baker Photography - and hope you'll join us on the ride.
