guess what?

Some of you know, some of you have suspicions, and some of you wont have a clue. What is it? I'm pregnant! So pleased to confirm we are expecting our first child in June of next year. To say we are pleased as punch would be stating the obvious.

What does this mean for the studio? At the moment we are just going to back off a bit next year ( hence, no more wedding bookings! ) and have a few months off when bub is born, then back just part time for the rest of the year. This could change next year, but at the moment thats the plan.

As usual I have lots of grand plans that i want to achieve over the holidays, but i will most likely be found in my super comfy camping chair on the shore of Blowering Dam with a good book and a pile of magazines. No computer, no office and no deadlines!

malakai and kaleb

These two boys... love them! I have known them both since they were little, a round bundle in mums belly, i have done both of their naming days and family sessions with them. Malakai ( the eldest ) comes out with some of the most funny things and Kaleb is jsut watching the world around him and figuring it all out. I think i tired him out at our photo session? Dont you just want to pick him up and rock him to sleep?

the wedding of kara and jim

The cereomony of Kara and Jim was at Mt Erin Chapel, and their reception was at the Garden Court. The weather was pretty, the dresses gorgeous and the bridal party was fabulous!

Kara and Jim are not only fantastic people, and soooo in love, and so amazing together, they have been exremely patient waiting for me to edit their photos! So i thought i might post a couple of extra pics in their sneak peak.

And a bit of a behind the scenes moment. It totally cracks me up, because lining up in "boy girl" order is often much more complicated than it seems! Makes me laughh every time i look at it, i might have to print it out and put it on the wall in my office!

final call for print orders!

Talk about leaving it to the last minute! Who hasnt put their print order in yet? If i havent got it by Friday the 10th you wont be able to place another order till we reopen from holidays on the 17th of January. ( The deadline for all products has passed, except for prints and standard image boxes. ) And just to throw a spanner in the works I will be out of the office most of the day Friday. So as long as i have your order by email before Sunday you should be fine. But please make sure i email you back to tell you i have received your order, if you dont get confirmation i may not have received it.

archer { one year old }

I have been photographing Archer since he was a little bitty baby. Now he's a little man. We did do a cake smash for this session, but lets just say that Archer is not a fan of the idea!

hayden and olivia

They both started off really well but I think Olivia showed more staying power than Hayden, she was still smiling right at the end of the session. Her gorgeous apple dress and Haydens little shorts are from Brussel Sprout Kids. Cute stuff!

mel and adams shootbooth

Sometimes at a wedding ( or a function ) i get to set up my gear and do kind of a photo booth shoot style. With your guests. This slideshow is just a sample of some of the images that we got on the night.

( Unfortunately it doesnt quite fit nicely in the blog, but it still works. When i get time i will come back and try and make it look pretty! )

tyler + caden { and some lollipops } wagga child photography

Tyler and Caden came in and were fabulous to photograph. We saved the lollipops for the very end of the session, and the kids look so sweet in their denim eating them. They were pretty big lollipops so Caden pretty much gave up using the stick and just grabbed at it with both hands.

ten days till the print deadline!

Just a reminder that the print cut off date to get your orders back by Christmas is the 10th of December. Seeing as today is the first, that doesnt leave much time to get those orders in!

I know a couple of clients are still waiting for their slideshows, and they are coming very soon!

Christmas is sneaking up on me with all the stealth of a herd of elephants. I am trying not to panic that today is the first day of December. And where is summer? All this rain and overcast days are so like last season.

Cut off date for ordering is Friday the 10th of December
Prints ready for pick up on Friday the 17th of December.

fabulous five

Jesse, Toby, Zahli, Brandi and Rhani came in, giggled, laughed, cacked themselves ( actually that was probably just Toby, who would go into hyserical laugher every time i raised the camera! ) and hopefully had some fun together! I always think five kids would be fabulous.

clayton { eight months old }

Such a good age to photograph, Clayton was sitting up super well but not quite crawling, and the smiles! oh those smiles! i had to have a chat to him at one stage, cause you know how much i love the serious looks too. This is the expression he gave me (in the pic below)... what do you think? Serious enough? He cracks me up!

the wedding of gavin and marney

Gavin and Marney held their wedding ceremony at St. Michaels Cathedral, and their reception in a marquee on their parents property. The reception venue was one of the most beautiful I have ever photographed, there was so much attention to detail, and each detail was more beautiful than the last. Plus there was a chandelier and a pink themed candy bar. Unfortunately the weather was not as pretty, and had us running for cover on more than one occasion.


Do you think they make red sparkly shoes in my size?

emilie, sam, georgia and riley

Brothers, sisters and cousins are all in this mix of an awesome foursome. I have photographed them all before except Georgia, in the black and white pic at the top. Even though she gave me some lovely smiley ones i thought this one, with her little pout and soulful eyes, was just divine.

jake { eight weeks old } wagga baby photography

Jake looks so much like his big brother did when I photographed him at the same age. They both have that cute little nose. Although I think Jake is tending towards the ginger colours for his hair!
