I was right...I am never right about these things...lol. I predicted that Michelle would have a little girl in this post here, and what a gorgeous little girl she is. She was determined to not sleep. I was thinking I may have to come back and try again another day, but she finally succumbed to the land of nod. This little girl is very lucky to be growing up with 2 big brothers who dote so very much on her.
Michelle and Andrew I hope she settled for you after I left. Enjoy your sneak peek. I will be in contact very soon with your slideshow.

We found some too....hiding under a tree. Niamh and I went looking for the fairys and she found so many of them, what a lucky girl...lol. I met this lovely little girl and her baby brother yesterday afternoon for some photos with her Mum and Dad. We had a ball, though we were nearly blown away by the gale force winds....it was quite amazing how strong it was. Little Declan was not sure of me at all...gave me a little frown everytime I looked at him let alone pointed the camera in his direction. I did eventually get some frown free shots though.
Holly and Andrew here is just a few for you to see. I will have your slideshow ready for you very soon.

We had a ball on Saturday afternoon. I got to meet my new buddy Max who is going to school next year. He ran...he jumped...he rode...he blew... and the wind blew aswell. We were very lucky that the weather did hold out for us. Though as I drove away I did get a few spots of rain on my windscreen, it had been threatening all day. Thanks so much for coming out and playing with me. It was lovely to meet you all.
Enjoy your preview Andrea and Steve...I hope he slept very well for you after dinner...lol. I will be in contact with you soon.

Gorgeous little Miss Charlotte is a bit older, at 5 weeks, than I would usually do for a newborn session but once she finally succumbed to sleep she was fabulous. She kept smiling at me, but it must have eventually worn her out. Though she didn't like the idea of being naked I have ways of getting around it. She christened almost all of my blankets...don't worry hazard of the job...lol.
Charmaine and Damien I hope she settled for you after I left. Enjoy your preview I will be in contact soon with your slideshow.

This gorgeous little girl was one of my very first newborn sessions here. Her session still remains one of my favourites. She was only 13days old when I took her first photos. She is now 13 months old. I was so excited to be able to take her photos again especially as she and her family are moving back home to Brisbane next week.
Faye thank you for letting me take her photos when she first came into this world. She will always remain a special little girl to me. I am only going to show you one photo from the session but so far it is my favourite one.
I will be in contact with you once you have settled back in your new home. Take care and travel safely.

This is the second installment of my Melbourne sessions....14 people....I know....... but we had a ball doing it. This session was organised by Dani for her husband and kids and then there was aunts and uncles and cousins and Nannas and Pops...even one uncle all the way from London. It was go go go from the very beginning until we got kicked out of the gardens because they were closing. We moved to the park next door and nearly got blown away by the wind...we lost 2 balloons though....had some tears over it but lollipops fixed that. The icecream man even came to the party...lol.
Dani it was so lovely to finally meet you after almost 3 years. Next time we will sit and have a coffee instead...lol.
Here is just a few for you too see until the slideshow is ready.......ENJOY!!!

That was a very appropriate saying when I met this lovely family in Melbourne. I had to make a deal with Luke that I would take 5 photos and then he can do silly one....lol. So I now have a lot of photos with sticking out tounges and very cheeky grins. It was fabulous and check out Mum and Dad after 10 years if I recall correctly they still look so much in love......awwwwww.
Janine and Richard I know you have been waiting so paitently to see these, so here you go. I had a fabulous time photographing your family.
This is the first of my Melbourne sessions so be prepared for LOTS of sneek peeks...lol.

This little guy is going the be the best big brother, he already knows all the things a big brother does. Like cuddling and kissing and patting.......and.....poking.....and...pushing......lol, all to mums tummy.
Dosen't Michelle look fabulous??? so compact and no issues with moving around. I had her squatting in doorways, sitting on the ground, slouching in chairs...lol. I think she did actually glow too.
I can't wait to meet the little bubba inside in a few short weeks. I am guessing a tiny little girl...lol.
I hope you enjoy your photos Michelle. I will have your slideshow ready very soon.

That is pretty much what happened when I met this gorgeous family. When I asked little Flynn what he could see in my camera his response after looking very hard was he could see a tiger...but not only a tiger but a giraffe and a leopard aswell...lol. He has the most fabulous imagination. His big sister Holly took me by the hand and gave me a guided tour of her house and backyard....lol and I have to say, I don't think I have ever seen a child swing as high on the swing as she did.....man I was nervous but she was loving it.
I had so much fun photographing this family and their newest addition 10 week old Daisy who has the most fabulous hair.
Thanks you Bronwyn and Deane for letting me meet your wondeful family. Enjoy your photos and I will be in contact soon with your slideshow.

I have been flat chat this week. With the workshop with the fabulous Barb from 'Jinky Art', school going back, sessions to proof and emails to catch up on. I am slowly getting to the bottom of my pile...lol. If you have sent me an email and I haven't replied yet I seriously apologise...can you resend it as it may have been lost/missed in the chaos that was this week.
Now I have sooooooo much to share with you. Firstly the workshop....OMG it was just amazing. To meet Barb..aka..Jinky was such an honour. I will tell you I was peeing my pants as we got closer to Bungendore. I am so glad my dear friend Robyn was driving as I was so nervous. Not only about meeting Barb but all these other friends I have made online through our love of photography. Well I had nothing to worry about as they were all just so lovely. It was the best weekend and I learnt so much my head is still spinning....lol.
So the first 3 photos are some I took during the weekend.
The morning before I left to go I had a mini session with Billy from the last post and his grandparents who had flown down from Brisbane to meet him. So we headed out to Floridae to have a little session with him his Mum and Dad and his lovely grandparents. So that is the 4th photo the light was just gorgeous in this particular spot. Stay tuned for Floriade next year as I have something in mind just have to see if it will be feasible.
Tha last photo is just somehting I took yesterday of my Conor in the blue and his bestest buddy Sam...two very cheeky monkeys......lol.
So I still haven't shared any photos from the wedding I did with Robyn a few weeks ago. Unfortunately the week following thier wedding they recieved some very sad news the the grooms sister had passed away very suddenly. So the honymoon was postponed so that they could fly home to be with their family. My thoughts go out to them during this very emotional time.
I also did another session with the ACOCP yesterday. Little Kate was born at just 25 weeks and I was privelidged to meet her and her family.
So there is still lots to come aswell as 2 birthdays in the next 2 weeks.....so stay tuned.

Oh little Billy was just so sweet and so alert for 7 days old. He was happily staring out the window while we got ready for his session. He did finally succumb to the land of nod...but not until he pooed all over his Daddy during one of the photos.....lol. So Dad went off to get cleaned up and we continued with the session. By this time he was sound alseep so we cranked up the heat and did his nudie photos. He performed beautifully as you can see from the photos.
I had so many cuddles from this little boy and it was lovely.....gee I love my job.
Brad and Tracy enjoy your little preview I hope you like them as much as I do. I will have your slideshow ready next week.
**AWAY FROM THE OFFICE**
Just a little note to let you all know that I am going to be living it up with a bunch of fabulous photographers while we learn everything we can from the fabulous Barb Uil from 'Jinky Art'. She is running a workshop from Friday 10th till Sunday 12th of October. So I will be awayfrom the office this weekend.

Meet little Angus.....he was not a happy camper when it came to his photos. Screamed at the thought of being naked but I was determined to get there so at the very end I did manage to snap a few photos of him in the buff.
His gorgeous big sister Audrey is a bit smitten with him though still cautious. As you would be when this noisy little being joins the house hold. You can tell though she is going to be a fabulous big sister.
Here is the much anticipated sneek peek for you Lara and JP. ENJOY!!!

I had the honour of meeting and taking photos of little Mylie on Sunday. She was my first session for the ACOCP and the first one for the ACT.
Mylie was born at 25 weeks and 6 days, way too early for such a beautiful little girl. She must have been to eager to meet her Mum and Dad. She is now around 5 weeks old and has just reached the 1kg mark. She is delicate, like a little girl should be but had a little bit of spunk which she proudly showed when she was getting her little dress on for the photo session. She is getting bigger and stronger every day and though it must break her Mum and Dads heart each time they have to leave her in the NICU, one day very soon she will walk out the door with them to begin her life where she should be...at home, safe, with her loving parents.
Lisa and Matt thank you so much for allowing me into your life ever so briefly to capture Mylie's journey. May she keep growing stronger each day until she is spending all her time in your arms, cooing and smiling up at you.
