So far behind on the Blog posts! Note to self – post more shoots in 2014! Said that in 2013 too, so we’ll see how I go!
These two beauties and their parents had a ball at their session (some months ago now!) It was very, very hot and smokey from all the bushfires around Sydney at the time, and alot of the park was closed to the public for safety, but we found some new spots, rolled around on the ground and got some lovely shots.
I love to capture those moments when a family interacts with each other, just doing their thing.
The little moments, as time passes, you might forget.
But occasionally, a shoot doesn’t go to plan, and this one didn’t start out too well! Firstly, a mix up with our chosen outdoor location, with me being advised a booking was not needed only to arrive and be told the exact opposite was extremely embarrassing and frustrating. I hate to look unprofessional! Whilst I was trying to sort out this mix up, 8 month old Xavier decided he didn’t like what he was wearing and, well…. number two’s was well represented!
We agreed on an alternative location, Xavier was changed, we took a quick 20 minute drive and then settled into our session.
These are just a handful of the beautiful images we were able to capture!
Erin and Stacy, thank you both for your patience! Even with our little dramas, I hope I’ve captured you exactly as you wanted. It was an absolute pleasure to spend time with your beautiful family.
I have let the Blog slide by over the last six months or so in favour of Facebook as a way of sharing my photography, both professional and personal. But tonight I have made a momentous decision… well not really momentous, but significant none-the-less – the reinvention of my Blog! Ah ha, I can hear the trumpets….!
I will continue to use my Facebook business page to display my professional work and the plan is to share my more personal imagery and musings on the Blog, linked from Facebook of course! 😉
Wish me luck and any encouragement you can give me along the way won’t go unnoticed!!
Most of us at some stage, take a wander through a cemetery. As children, my sister and I used to walk through our local cemetery on occasion, mainly looking at how old people were when they met their maker.
I like to look at old graves. Not sure why, I have always had a healthy fascination with these locations. So when my family and I took a trip down to Picton a few weekends ago, of course we had to visit the local cemetery.
Picton cemetery is meant to be one of the most haunted locations in Sydney. Well, I’m thankful to say we didn’t get to meet Casper, but slightly disappointed to say I did not capture any apparitions through my lens either!
It is a very small cemetery crowded with old graves dating back to the mid 1800’s. Many babies, toddlers and young adults are buried there and most of the graves are quite elaborate. As my daughters and I meandered amongst the graves, I took a few snaps….
“A little ray of sunshine has come into the world, A little ray of sunshine in the shape of a girl….”
What a gorgeous little bub! Piper was four weeks early so she was still so little when I got to meet her. I had lovely cuddles too!
Justin’s (aka dad) sister had enquired about a gift certificate for her brother as she wanted them to have some special pictures as a present on the birth of her niece. Joanna (aka mum and my second mum with the same name!) and Justin were so relaxed with their session.
And little Piper, well, she was just perfect! Two and a half hours of camera fun and there were only a few little tears but plenty of wonderful expressions! 🙂
Thanks to you both for allowing me into your home to capture these moments for you, and thank you for your hospitality and lovely coffee!! ♥
Look at this beautiful family – and first time parents!
I used to work with Joanna a few years ago, and when she told me she was pregnant and wanted me to take pics of her newborn when ‘it’ came along, I was thrilled!
This beautiful little boy, Benjamin, loved his hands and was pretty much awake for the whole session. He made me clucky he was soooo adorable, but I think my child-bearing days are well and truly over!
Mum and dad, Brett, were completely comfortable in front of the camera and were so relaxed that we got some great natural and ‘real’ images – right up my alley!
Thank you so much Jo and Brett for allowing me into your home to capture you all and congratulations to you both. You are going to make fantastic parents! xx
Well, I have just had a look at when I last posted and am ashamed to say it was nearly one month ago! Too much time on Facebook amongst other things 😦 Ooops…
Time to post some recent shoots of some gorgeous families and people, and whilst I am at it, resume the weekly challenges I set for myself at the beginning of the year which have drastically fallen by the wayside!
Baby Mariel had a pair of the biggest, soul-searching eyes I have seen in long time! She obviously got them from her mother, as her eyes were just as beautiful!
Thank you Mariam and Ehab for allowing me into your home to capture you both and your new baby!
