Hello…after a long period of silence (again!) I thought it was time to post an update.  It was just this morning I was chatting to another (newly found) fellow lover of photography, about social media and blogs, and I said the words out loud that I hadn’t updated my blog since August 2012 – whoops!!  But in the middle of then and now was 2013..and didn’t it live up to it’s name?  I’m not sorry to wave goodbye to the big ’13’ – it came and went leaving a trail of destruction.  Looking back on the year now I can see that I did capture some of the happy moments in peoples lives and I saw many old faces return with new faces to introduce – so perhaps it wasn’t all bad!  Here’s a little snap shot of some of the things I saw…….

A gorgeous little blue bundle arrived early in 2013 and I was lucky enough to capture these images when he was just 11 days old…a little treasure (from all reports he’s into everything now – on the go, almost 1) – he’s coming back for more fun in the studio in May…stay tuned!!

Two cool little indians had fun in the studio – what child doesn’t like to dress up?  These are stunning costumes, for information about stockists contact – http://www.simoneagency.com.au/home


I had many familiar faces return to the studio some with new children and some just with bigger children than last time – it’s always lovely to see how much the kids have grown and what exciting things they’re up to.  Here’s a family I’ve seen three years in a row, each time in a new location – we had fun as always…


It’s always exciting to meet a new family – the nervous anticipation about whether they’ll like having their photo taken, whether they’ll respond to me or whether it will all just run like clockwork…..in November I had the pleasure of meeting a new family with 3 gorgeously cheeky children….here are the results.




I had the pleasure of meeting another gorgeous tiny bundle – who just would not go to sleep.  Perhaps he was afraid he’d miss something….my brief for the shoot was flexible except for one image.  Here it is below…watch this space in 15 years, who knows maybe he’ll play for Australia!!!


Towards the end of the year I was surprised by the number of calls I had from families wanting a Christmas photo.  Not your usual photo, to send out with the Christmas cards, but a photo captured while celebrating Christmas…2013 was a year for family members living overseas to come home for Christmas.  Here are a few groups, all travelled many miles to be together at Christmas time, precious moments captured forever…


I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again that I feel an enormous amount of responsibility capturing precious memories for people – I particularly love capturing family groups, Mum and Dad with their child and grandchildren.  They are moments and memories that have taken years of hard work and effort to create – a happy, loving family is one of the most prized possessions…this family was no exception….


Another business customer returned with her new season of fantastic raincoats, gumboots and pinafores – look out for her stock in store this winter, you can find out more info about stockists at http://overcrawls.com



So that brings us up to February 2014 – the year has started at full speed – kids back to school and all their extra circular activities and business clients under the pump to get their catalogues ready for the intense selling period.  So the year is shaping up to be busy and fun and full – hopefully it will be an exciting year with a new studio and office space for me…still working on that but fingers crossed!! Here’s just a couple of images I took last week for my long standing client Fiona – creater and producer of amazing hats – http://www.acornkids.com.au
