Celebration of family & friendship in Maleny

Is there anywhere more beautiful than Maleny for a celebration of family & friendship?! B & her family were staying at the luxury Spicers Tamarind Retreat so we started the photoshoot there. What an amazing oasis it is nestled in a beautiful rainforest setting. It has some amazing little spots to capture stunning outdoor portraits. Just as we were finishing up, a huge storm rolled in! Luckily we made it back up to the retreat without too much damage. Hair & dresses were a little bit wet but nothing that wouldn’t dry off quickly in this hot Queensland weather.

We waited for the storm to pass over before heading to one of Maleny’s most scenic views, from Maleny’s One Tree Hill. Wow – just looking out over the vista will take your breath away. We were blessed with the most amazing sky this evening. Layer upon layer of clouds and light creating a surreal scenic landscape. A feeling of complete relaxation just takes over looking at that view. What a magical evening it was, watching the girls run around their mum & playing near the cows in the field. I get the sense everyone really enjoyed it 💗 Oh and if you are wondering where her stunning dress is from, its by Alex Perry
