Sydney Harbour from Quay Restaurant

Quay Restaurant is situated at the Ocean Liner terminal in Sydney Harbour. After dinner we went for a stroll upstairs and out onto the deck. The view is outstanding. I can understand why so many functions are held here.



Old Sydney Town has some pretty buildings.

Stage/Theatre Photography - Copacabana, The Musical


This is a marvellous performance by the boys from Marist North Shore in collaboration with the girl schoools, Willoughby and Mercy College. If you get a chance, do go. It ends this Saturday, June 16th 2012. Tickets are on sale at TRYBOOKING.





Not only is the singing, acting and dancing good, the school band, along with a few sensational friends and led by Rod Herbert, is amazing! Regarded as Australia's premier trumpeter, Danny May's rips into a solo that will send shivers down your spine! You will want to return another night, just to listen to the music...

Child Portrait - Oliver and Missy, The Labradoodle

What did you say? Working with children and pets is a nightmare. Not quite, but very challenging. Usually one or the other is ok but put the two together and you will definitely be in need of a calming cup of tea afterwards!

Swim Action Photography - New Site Launched

Because my Flash based website is just SO slow, I decided to launch a new website with Photoshelter to handle the large number of orders coming in for swim action photo's from various meets. 


So far, so good. There are a couple of improvements that I would like to see made in the near future but on the whole, I'm pretty impressed.


Thank you to all my clients who happily gave me feedback regarding the previous site. It helps to know when you're doing something wrong as well as when you get it right!


Here is the link to the new site. It is also available from the splash page on www.ninabeilby.com.

Beautiful Child Portrait - When You Least Expect it!



What do you do when the dog has had enough...photograph the children! 


Today we were photographing for a pet magazine, (Pet Industry News)  but Missy, the Labradoodle decided to take a break alas Miss Em was not finished. 


It's autumn in Oz right now and the leaves and flowers are all over the ground...such a pretty backdrop (for a short while at least).


Em decided herself that she would like to be photographed and had set her pretty dress and shoes out the night before.


This always makes for the best shoots. Children that actually enjoy the camera as opposed to those who require bribes or treats!!!

Small Business Portrait - Natural for the Naturopath...

Please meet my lovely friend Siggi. 


A busy mother of four happy and healthy children, Siggi is concerned about other children consuming food of very little nutritional value (junk) when healthy food is so quick and easy to prepare.


Being a Naturopath, Siggi has a keen awareness of the key elements necessary for the optimal health of the body and mind. 


Conversely, she can predict what future ailments lay ahead for those who choose to avoid such a wholesome diet.


As such, she has started a Blog where she will share healthy recipes that are quick and easy to prepare.


Feel free to visit her blog and try her recipes. Think I'll try the Carrot Cake...yum!
