A rainbow coloured crowd gathered in Lismore's new quadrangle this morning, to wait together for the result of the recent Same Sex Marriage Plebishite. Up until a few days ago I was feeling positive that common sense would prevail and we would overwhelmingly vote yes and get on with it. But as the result has drawn closer, I have to admit to feeling more and more nervous and wondering if stupidity and hate would win. Thankfully 61.8% voted Yes and now we just have to hope that the politicians, having asked our opinion, now listen and act for the majority.

Headed into Lismore to check out the new gallery without the opening crowds. It was fabulous! See some of my pics here.

We then walked through town for lunch and happened upon Pietro Fine and his merry minstrels playing Klezmer in the streets. If you have never heard Klezmer music, or if you have and you know how awesome it is, and you want to get involved, Orkeztar Lizmoré rehearse every Wednesday fortnight at the Tatts and welcome new members. Next rehearsal is 15th Nov and for more details, check out their Facebook page.

After decades of passionate work and dedication by a group of vision driven human beings, last Saturday saw the opening of the new Lismore Regional Gallery. Located in the old 'C Block', the building begins its latest identity as a place for both local, interstate and now even international art exhibitions. Attended by many local creative people and a few relevant imports, there was much cheering and acknowledgement for key individuals responsible for the amazing new space. If I sound all gushy, it's because I am! Still can't quite believe it has happened after decades of trying, but so grateful that the dream is finally a reality.

Bet you can't guess what my biggest problem was at Saturday's wedding? I've dealt with awful weather, misbehaving animals and children, schedules running up to 2 hours late and all manner of things in between. You just deal with it and have the most amazing time possible. But Saturday's problem was a new one. I was laughing so hard at times, that I was struggling to keep the camera still enough to focus!

Daniel and Armela are good at making each other smile and they have surrounded themselves with similar jolly types. These include their brothers and sisters, who just happened to make up the bridal party. Hilarity ensued! Look on...

The merrymakers from far and wide.

dan & armela 022dan & armela 022 OK...there is a backstory to this image. Armela wanted to do an 'old fashioned' photo where none of them smiled. I indulged because I really didn't think they were capable of straight faces for any period of time. They managed this for about 10 seconds before Armela cracked and the rest followed soon after! dan & armela 023dan & armela 023

Brothers Daniel, Andrew and Mitchell.

Sibling speeches...yes this group are full of humour, constantly ribbing each other, but they also showed their softer sides with speeches full of heartfelt sentiment. It was a beautiful contrast to all the laughter.

Love is a very strong thing and guests travelled from as far away as South America, Europe, the USA, and a few from around Australia too, to land in lovely Rosebank, NSW for yesterday's wedding. They wanted to be there for this special couple and distance wasn't going to stop them. It was a joining of two countries, Australia and Peru. Yes there were cultural differences. Yes there was a language barrier for many. But love builds bridges and removes all barriers, and the warmth generated by Alex and Mila and their beautiful family and friends yesterday was enough to melt the north pole!

Weddings are wonderful things. They bring together a bunch of beautiful people ready to celebrate love and that road well travelled for generations....marriage. In spite of the sweltering heat yesterday, there was much laughter, a few tears and an overwhelming sense of love and happiness for Nathan & Kim as they said their I dos. It was truly fabulous!

It is wonderful to catch up with a family that you have photographed over the years and see how children have grown, meet the new little humans and see how family bonds have grown. Yesterday I caught up with the fabulous Herbert family and in spite of the dreary weather, we had a great time wearing gumboots, chasing bubbles, picking lemons, watering the garden, climbing trees and just generally hanging out together!

I arrive and open the car door to be greeted by a very articulate 3 year old red head, introducing himself and asking if I'm Natsky...so this little guy ain't shy! I am here to photograph Steve, Bridie and their two children and what a great way to spend a spring morning. We started with a tea party and also had a go on the "jumpoline", which I think is a much better name for a trampoline! We picked and ate strawberries from the garden, played in the banana tree house and then it was time for a smoothie. Lucky for two children, mummy accidentally put too much cacao in...chocolate grins all round!

Congratulations to Louise Collins and all from the YWCA for creating such an amazing day in Lismore yesterday. Raising awareness around Child Protection Week, Louise came up with a plan to create a sand sculpture right in the middle of town, with the help of artist Karma Barnes. Everyone was invited to contribute their little patch of dirt using sand and soil from the surrounding areas...and contribute they did! It usually takes 9 months to grow a baby and no doubt there was much planning in the lead up to yesterday's events, but Lismore birthed a baby in a just day! Cos we're awesome like that!

Massive gratitude to the following organisations for making it all happen;

YWCA, NAPCANCASPA, Foundation Care, RED Inc, Social Futures (Northern Rivers Social Development Council), Multitask, Family Referral Service, Lismore Come to The Heart, Family Support Network Inc and Brighter Futures.

Support the organisations who support our community. Send them your love and kind words.

Keep children safe.

Over the past few years I have been lucky enough to hang out with a cool dude called Little D. Since our last catch up he has become a big brother to the ever smiling Sweet P and today we got to hang out again with cameras for some more face pulling and sibling fun. Having watched Little D grow up and knowing some of his facial expressions, it is interesting that his little sister pulls the same faces at times. These two are definitely siblings!

http://www.natsky.com.au/blog/2016/8/a-north-coast-unwedding A North Coast "Unwedding"

 

Be prepared for a bit of a rant.

 

Normally I publish photos of lovers laughing, cuddling, kissing, being openly in love on their wedding day. Yesterday I photographed an "Unwedding" for two beautiful women and sadly, at their request, I am unable to show you their faces of happiness. 

 

They have been in a committed relationship now for 14 years, but due to our ridiculous laws, are still unable to be legally married. Though 'out' to their family and friends, they are unable to be open in their workplaces due to the real possibility of consequences, hence the no-show of faces.

 

I hate the fact that people have to 'come out' about their sexuality.

I hate that we feel the need for so many labels to place on people.

I hate the fact that we still live in a world where chunks of society still feel they can dictate who you can or cannot love. 

I hate that these two women cannot feel free to express their love openly, anywhere, anytime for fear of negative repercussions.

I hate that same sex couples can't just get married like everyone else.

 

So because of all the BS, here is a photo of their hands, lightly touching in a public place...just in case.

 

BYRON BAY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERBYRON BAY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

 

I wish them both every happiness and I also hope that in the not too distant future, this kind of rant will be unnecessary and everyone can live and love openly and honestly.

Rant over.

Had the delight of catching up with this beautiful family yesterday afternoon! I have known them for quite a few years now and have photographed a wedding and a few family gatherings, including this one where I met new addition, Rory aka Rorby. Cameron has grown up since our last meeting and is constantly on the move exploring and was experiencing his first ever timtams! I love watching and documenting family ties and the interactions of all. Each family is different and this one is pretty special!

True sentiment. Tears. Tenderness. Joy. There aren't enough words in a thesaurus! Congratulations and mountains of love to Rod & Sharon aka Polli & Rocket.

It's not everyday I have the pleasure of photographing a Crapp wedding, but that is exactly what happened in the hills of Tullera yesterday! This amazing couple who have travelled a long and at times difficult road to get to today, were married on their property under twin fig trees with family and friends from all over watching on. Michael & Bron have a strong connection, not just with each other, but with all that hold a piece of their hearts and yesterday saw a few tears and lots of laughs as everyone celebrated and enjoyed their "Crapp Wedding"!

When you arrive at a wedding ceremony and one of the first things you see is a sign declaring "Mutual Weirdnesss Forever" you know you are in for a hilarious time! Bede and Kimberley chose the fabulous Jaspers Corner at Federal as the place to say their "I dos" and get crazy celebrating with family and friends...and it was so much fun!

When it is raining on the day I am supposed to photograph an outdoor wedding ceremony, I always find myself asking "So how brave are they?". On Saturday, under the big old fig tree at Midginbill Hill, Brett & Delphine were brave!
