When scheduling an outdoor portrait session with Fresh Imagery, you may notice that we recommend shooting during a very precise time of day – generally the last sixty to ninety minutes before the sun has completely set.
This special window known to photographers as “The Golden Hour” is the period of time when the light from the sun is at its most perfect. With its long rays diffused across the entire sky, the light creates a flattering glow and shimmer for picture perfect skintones and deliciously warm portraits.
During midday, when every ray of the sun seems to find its way to our delicate, overexposed skin, the shadows created are usually too deep in contrast to the glare. Instead of fighting the harsh light, it’s better to schedule outdoor shooting during the Golden Hour when the sun still works its magic—but in our favour.
You can book your Golden Hour shoot with Bridgette by clicking here.

As Winter is in full swing right now, this is what our outside play time looks like…………..

Beanies and jackets, chasing sunshine and climbing trees. Oh and plenty of laughs!

Thank you so much to all of the lovely friends and families out there that nominated love ones for Fresh Imagery’s ‘Giving back some sunshine’ family shoot.

The response was overwhelming and I was brought to tears so many times reading through the unbelievable stories of these brave and deserving families.

I wish I could gift a shoot and digital images to each of these families, but sadly I can’t.

However, as I have two gorgeous mini assistants, (who may or may not have started fighting and arguing over who got to pull a name out of the hat), I decided to do two name draws and giveaway two family shoots complete with all of the digital images! Yay!

Ok, so now I need you to imagine a really cool drumroll……………..

…..congratulations to Natasha & Dion and family and also Kylee & Ben and family!

I’m really, really looking forward to talking to you guys soon and organising your family shoots!

A photo shoot with this light in the Barossa Valley is truly amazing, in the golden hour on a sunny Autumn afternoon. Combine that with a stunning golden foliage backdrop and this gorgeous, smiley six month old (with the coolest mohawk), his awesome parents and lovely grandparents and you get my idea of a perfect shoot!

J, thank you so much for traveling from Adelaide for this shoot, it was a privileged to be able to spend some time with you and your lovely family on your very first Mother’s Day!

This sweet little man took my hand and led me around his Tanunda property showing me all the things that he loves to look at.

He is at such a fun age, and it was awesome to see his little world through his eyes and collecting little treasures as we went. What a fab way to spend a sunny early morning, I love having photo shoots all around this beautiful Barossa Valley.

I was lucky enough to photograph this awesome family for a second time, this time with a new family member.

This photo shoot was filled with so much wonderful energy, craziness and giggles………just like last time I photographed them.  I smiled to myself the entire drive home thinking about the beach races, shell collecting and epic castle building fun that I had with these amazing kiddos and their lovely Mummy.










Over Easter we packed up and went on a road trip to Streaky Bay on the Eyre Peninsula….my hometown.

I loved taking the kids to some of the places that I got to explore as a kid, there are so many amazing beaches.

I took so many photos, it’s going to take me forever to go through them all. Here are a few that I have come across so far.

We are dreaming of the day that we can get back there soon! :)

I was archiving some photos from last winter and came across these.  Look at the beautiful golden light.

I love that she always makes time to stop and smell the flowers and I hope that she always will.

Now, I just have to teach her that smell doesn’t mean bite, chew and taste! :D



I spent an amazing Sunday with this beautiful family.

They drove from Adelaide to the Barossa especially for their family photo shoot, we had lunch, toured the Barossa Valley a little and then we ran around and played on the grass.

I couldn’t think of a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon in the perfect Autumn sunshine.

Nat and Adam, thank you for the visit. Leo is a very lucky little boy to have two such attentive and loving parents. Capturing your gorgeous little family right here in Angaston was a fantastic idea and I’m so happy that I got to spend that time with you and grinning Mr Leo!
