I don't know about you but these school holidays I've been trying to get my son outside playing in this gorgeous Spring weather. I had a great shoot with a friend's son down at the local skate park and boy can this dude acid drop! Thanks 'K' for not landing on top of me as you went over me with those awesome air jumps! Sick!!
Dusting off the cobwebs from the archives, I stumbled across these images of my two favourite boys! One of my favourite things to do is to look through the old photos and see how much my family has changed and grown.
A beautiful moment for a beautiful woman!

Winter is here and it's so nice hibernating inside in the warmth. Despite what people might think, Winter is a great time to take photos. Often when the sun does shine you get very bright, crisp gorgeous light.
Although the days might be shorter, the relatively low directional sunlight means that the sun is never directly overhead. This means you can often shoot all day and not get unpleasant shadows from overhead light.
Cloudy days makes taking photos a lot easier because you don't have to worry about harsh shadows over the face or uneven light. A lot of clouds produces beautiful, soft lighting. Sure, it's great to take pictures when the sun is glowing and warm light is everywhere but soft diffused light is just as pretty in my opinion. Foggy mornings give a real ethereal feel to photos or rugging up down the beach with the wind blowing gives a romantic feel.
So don't feel put off having photos taken in Winter and if all else fails we can always photograph your family indoors.
An oldie but a goodie of my munchkin!
Happiness......is remembering times like these.....

It's such a precious time when you're pregnant ... that little blessing in our bellies, the anticipation of who this little person will be, imagining what it will be like to hold your baby for the first time.
Valentine flowers from my beautiful hubby! Feeling very spoilt!!
3 month old baby, teenie weenie little hands and feet look so tiny in the big cot!!
Happy 11th birthday to my miracle boy Toby! Can't believe time has gone so quickly and he's now classed as a Tween! It only seems like yesterday he was a baby! To celebrate, Toby decided to go to the drive-in for the first time. The back seat went down and the boy's cuddled up with their pillows and blankets, what a life???? He had a ball and can't wait to go back!
Fun day down at Sorrento then across to Queenscliff on the ferry with my family.
The joy of meeting a new little bundle gets me every time! This beautiful little girl arrived just in time for her first Christmas and what a Christmas present it was for her parents! Congratulations, she's just beautiful!
Welcome to our new neighbours across the street, not only to the neighbourhood but also their new little baby boy to their family.
Chillin' down at the diner!
It's a hot one today....keep cool!
To all the precious newborns, babies, children, and families that I've photographed during 2014, thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting me and helping me do what I love so much. Cheers to 2015!
