booking up left right and centre!

Just a heads up about bookings! I have already booked February and March and am now booking early April and May. Then I am due in June, so I am trying not to take any session bookings for June so I can get everyones sessions and weddings and story books and albums and prints and the banking all done before my new little one arrives! Then we will be closed in July, August and September for maternity leave, and then back ( but only part time! ) in September and October.

Wow, that sounds like a lot!

Ok, now i have to go and edit a wedding or two so i can get some much more interesting blog posts up here!

imogen { ten months old } wagga photographer

Imogen was not at all impressed by her photo session.
We started off with mostly this expression:

which turned to something like this 
( which is pretty cute with her chubby finger in her mouth, and her little feet crossed over! )

 and then i got a smile! And that was pretty much the end of the session.

lulu { fifteen days old } wagga newborn photographer

Little Lulu is such a sweetie pie! I have photographed Lulu's big sister Indi before so I knew her mum would come in with some gorgeous things for our session. The old pram was a $10 garage sale buy, I was hoping you wouldnt notice the front tyres are missing, I will have to put new ones on my shopping list! But doesnt it look divine with the beautiful patchwork blanket from Vintage Stash? I tried to keep it at the end of the session but it matches Lulu's room beautifully so I had to let it go. I can see a shopping trip to Vintage Stash in the very near future!

welcome back!

Wow, its 2011 already and the first month is three quarters done.

Thank you for all the wonderful emails i have had about my pregnancy. So far its all going well, and i am trying to keep those thoughts about all the things that can go wrong out of my head. My fingers are swelled up which seems to be making it a bit trickier to type than usual, but apart from that I'm feeling pretty good.

The whole journey of pregnancy... what a learning curve. There are so many things i understand about women now that never quite made sense before. I know that its not always an easy journey, i have heard many stories from clients and from friends, many of them heartbreaking. I now have my own stories to add to theirs. But women are just amazing. Not just the fact that we can make something so beautiful with our bodies, but the fact that we can have our hearts broken, and that we are strong enough to make the decision to stand up and maybe get it broken all over again.

Time to get down off my high horse now, because i think i might have overbooked myself for the first week back, but i had so many little babies that were born over christmas that i had to book in. They just grow up so fast, and are changing every day.

what a blur!

Where did christmas go? Its been and gone, kind of a blink and you'll miss it holiday. New Years finally saw me get some time off and slow down a bit, and now i am really relaxing and not looking forward to going back to work on the 17th! I have a wedding this Friday to shoot, but i am thinking of going away again this weekend. When your house is at the back of the studio, sometimes the only way to really knock off is to get out of town.

I hope everyone had a wonderful christmas and that the new year is full of peace, love and happiness.
