These three kids are at school with my eldest boys. Hannah and Claudia are in preschool with Liam and Sam is 2 yrs above Ryan at primary school. I tell you, to me, it seemed like these kids really love each other it was so lovely to see. Now H and C are twins but so different. H has the most amazing bottichelli features with this gorgeous curly hair and C well she has the most intense dark brown eyes....you could drown in them and fine elfin features. They are just too gorgeous, wouldn't say boo to a mouse although their mum begs to differ. Now S well he has these gorgeous dark eyes and hair and lovely full lips. He will be fighting them off with a stick in a few years time. So for now I am just sharing these few photos in particular for thier dad who is currently over in Iraq on a 6 mth posting. So here you are.............your gorgeous children.

I found out about an amazing charity called the Australian Charity Of Childrens Photographers (ACOCP) through an online friend. They are the most amazing people. These are professional photographers who give up their time to go into local hospitals and give free photo sessions to families of seriously and terminally ill children aswell as premmie and stillborn babies. Now I don't proclaim to be a professional by any means but I thought this is something that I would love to do. To be able to use my talent to give something so special to these families when they need it most. So I sent of my application and found out on Wednesday that I had been accepted..........WOW. This is something that means alot to me so I am going to do my very best to give these families some special memories.
Then.............yesterday I recieved a phone call from the Tuggeranong Arts Center to say that a photo I had entered in their photography competition has been selected as a finalist. Well I was completley blown away.....YAY!! The judging is Sunday night at 6.30pm so I will let you all know how I went. The photo I entered is the one above titled.........Sleeping Beauty.

Well I was very lucky over the weekend, I got to meet one of the lovely ladies on EB and her darling little twin girls. She was so understanding as it was the first time I had taken phots of twins. Oh they were tiny......6weeks old, 1 week corrected. Ella slept the whole time but Samantha was a bit grumpy. Neither wanted a bar of being naked....lol. I did manage to get some beautiful photos though. It was an experience....one that I would like to do again. Did I mention they were tiny???????

I met the sweetest little girl the other day, and she was tiny. My big boofas were never that small...lol. She was a whole two weeks old. She was not interested in having her photo taken at first all she wanted to do was feed. Who wouldn't want to be that snuggled up to mum. After a while we convinced her to pose for me. Well......she did a fantastic job. She even fell asleep at the end so I got some of her sleeping. Isn't she just gorgeous??

I found out the other day that one of my photos was chosen to be published in a calendar for the Australian Nappy Network. WOO HOO!!! I entered 2 photos of my dear friend Bec's little boy Jackson. He has been featured many times in here. Well the chose my favourite one. This is a big thing for me and it has really given me a confidence boost.
Not only that but this will be Jackson's second calendar appearence in 2008 as he is in the Australian Breastfeeding Association one as well. He is such a little star.
