Resident photographer at Scotch Oakburn College | Launceston Photographer

Since I’ve decided to come out of hiding again, I figured I should share some of the things I’ve been working on. This one has been a pretty major addition to my business, last term I started to work at Scotch Oakburn College as their resident photographer. What a cool gig this is.

Every time I get called out on a job, I’m amazed at the cool stuff these kids get to do. Scotch Oakburn has been voted in the top 40 of most innovative schools around Australia and I can see why. One minute I’m out on a boat heading up the river documenting rowing, then the next day I’m driving to Fingal to visit their off site campus. They have an amazing outdoor education program.

I wanted to share some of the images I took of this cool job I got to do documenting 10 Scotch Oakburn students who are members of the Fingal Fire Brigade. You can find the article in their community magazine Focus. Such a wonderful example of student’s helping out the community by participate in extensive training with the Tasmania Fire Service.

Celebrate You | Launceston Wellness Photographer

Wellness photographer

I don’t know if you’ve noticed or not but Ive been out of touch with my photography on social media and my website for the past two years. It hasn’t been because I’ve fallen out of love with my craft but more because I needed to take a step back and focus on myself, mentally, physically and emotionally.

In the last two years I have undergone a personal journey to living a healthier, happier me. 10 years of yo-yo dieting lead me down the path to a binge eating disorder, which followed with some pretty low self esteem, self loth and social anxiety. It was very easy to hide behind my photography business and I used it as an excuse that I didn’t have time to exercise or look after myself as I was making photography my first priority. I was at the bottom of my to do list.

When I hit my rock bottom I was a blubbering messy. (You can find my confession post here) I had a heart to heart with myself and I knew I just couldn’t keep continuing like this. I needed to create an ever lasting lifestyle change. And so the new obsession emerged a journey to the healthstyle. To create a life free from food battles, bad habits, mindset and limiting beliefs. I have realise the true importance of self-confidence, self-care, mindful eating and self-love, this is what finally got me doing the food freedom dance. My weight dropped, my business was restructured, and I was beginning to find me. Two years later, my love for health and wellness continued to increase and I decided to enrol at Cadence Health and become a certified nutrition and health coach.  

I needed to take a break from social media to help me heal. So I’m hoping I can come back with more intention and I hope it’s ok to start sharing my journey with you on a more personal level. How I was able to come back refreshed, focused and confident. Tips on how to balance all areas of life and encouragement to celebrate YOU.

As a person we are for ever evolving in so many areas of our lives. If you’ve followed my photography journey from the beginning you would have seen me try every genre of photography there is and it’s still happening. No matter how hard I tried to fit myself into a box, I just couldn’t help myself but to explore. To tell you the truth I nearly quit photography, because I loved the feeling of putting myself first and I was feeling the best I’ve felt in a really long time. To not have to put myself out there, worry about what I was going to post next. I felt free. But recently I’ve been in a huge shift and the universe was telling me to hang on and not give up on my passion. I’m definitely coming back with a new focus yet again, it’s not  something I’m forcing, Im just going with the flow. Mixing my love for photography and wellness together. Lets celebrate you.

Sunset cousins lifestyle session | Launceston photographer

I love when clients come to me for a special session like this. They wanted a photo done of the cousins together to give as a wedding anniversary present to their parents. Had to keep this one quiet for awhile, but heard back they loved their gift. 

This was the sweetest little session held at sunset, to give that beautiful glow. Here are a few of my favourites from our sunset cousin lifestyle session.

Picture Perfect Practice | Meghann Maguire Photographer

Hello everyone!

Its been such a long time since I did my last blog. Ive been on a much need social media detox. But Im back with a new monthly project that I'm doing with my photographer pal Jade Hallam. We've decided to work from a book called Picture Perfect Practice. I noticed with my work lately that I was getting lazy and not experimenting with my compositions. So what better way to get me thinking outside the box with a little project.

This month was geometry using shapes such as squares, rectangles, circles, triangles to help with framing, pattern and balance. I'm very much centre focused.

I'm definitely warming up and struggled a little. With rain and stuff. But here is what I came up with. 

Make sure to go check out Jades beautiful blog. She goes into a little more detail with her pictures.

Dont forget to check out Jade.
