lachlans cake smash

Except for the odd scowl, which he is very very good at, Lachlan enjoyed his cupcakes very very much.

display idea

Sometimes I call these organic displays, because they can grow over time. Just keep the frames similiar, so all white as shown here, but mix the sizes up for the best look.

I am also eyeing off that lovely pale blue wall colour, I think that could work for a boys or a girls room.

madison { fourteen months old }

Madison was a big fan of having her photo taken, she was posing and smiling and having a blast, even though it was so hot and sticky on the day.

Kaden is such a character! When he smiles his whole face light up, cute enough to melt your heart!

two pregnant ladies!

The baby kicked me! I am so excited for my friend Lisa, who is due in the next couple of weeks. It was a complete fluke we got pregnant around the same time ( shes due in March, I'm due in June ) but we get to travel this road together, and she is gonna help me navigate!

{ Lisa and Shaun, I am hanging by the phone waiting for the call so i can run up to Sydney when your bub is born! To be able to catch those newborn moments is something I wouldnt miss. Love you both! }

the wedding of amy and dean

Amy and Dean celebreated their love with a ceremony in Tumut, surrounded by family and friends. Sophie was their very special flower girl. I was so glad to be a part of Amy and Deans day, I have known Dean for years, and am so happy to see him married and in love and with a beautiful little girl.

The bridal party was hilarious and had me laughing from the first shot, and i had to laugh even more when i suggested we really needed to move this very old and very heavy tractor up the hill. The light was better!

an internet find { from etsy }

It probably comes from my graphic design background, but on top of my love of photography I also love typography. So when i found these lovely posters, printed on letterpress ( swoon! ) and perfect for new babys room, i had to share them with you.

They are from an Etsy store called  Sycamore Street Press and they cost $35.94 AUD each plus freight.

Sisters! So much fun to photograph, they got on like a house on fire and blazed up a storm in the studio.

william { one year old cake smash }

When Will smiles, his whole face lights up. He is the sweetest thing. He loved his cake smash, till he tried to crawl through at the end and landed on his belly. Evidently all that cream on your belly is not a good feeling!

what to wear

A couple of clients have mentioned the absence of any what to wear posts recently, and the inspiration ones as well. So i thought I better try and put something up!

This is more of an "accessories to bring" than a "what to wear" post, and from the wonderful site of And the Little Dog Laughed.

 The crocheted blanekts are divine, and would be perfect on my vintage pram ( or yours if you have one! ) and work wonderfully with vintage style bloomers and flower headbands.

The knitted toys have a timeless appeal, my favourite is Nellie the dog, but the monkey is also a bit of a sweetie. Even better if they work in the colour scheme of the outfits the kids are wearing.

halle { wagga baby photography }

Halle was four weeks old when she visited the studio. I photographed her parents wedding and then her big brother Levi, so it was a privelege to be able to photograph the newest addition to their family. Halle would only settle when she was wrapped up tight, so I spent a lot of time sneaking the blankets off for some quick shots then wrapping her up as snug as a bug in a rug.

milla, asha and baby isla { wagga child photographer }

I love photographing babies, but i also relish the chance to photograph older kids. It makes it easier when you can have a conversation that isnt all me making animal noises and forgetting the words to "incy wincy spider"! While Isla was having a rest I got to play dress ups with Milla and Asha, and then when Isla was all settled we brought her in too, and i just love the results.

sophia { wagga baby photography }

Sophia was three and a half weeks old when she visited the studio for her session, and her big brother Lachlan was about the same age when he had his session, but he has grown up so much.

I am totally in love with the sweet headbands Sophia had on for her shoot, and I'm going to have to do some more research to find all those clever people that are making them so I can have some in the studio.

jack maddison rhy and riley { wagga child photographer }

I had an absolute ball shooting these guys in the studio. Maybe its the pregnancy, but I am really enjoying watching how families, of all sizes and types, interact. The energy between them. And these guys had some great engery.

I think i need to work on my directions for this type of shot, the first take didnt really work, but once i stopped laughing I could get them pretty much where I wanted, although they didnt really get the point of a race where they all had to finish at the same time.

This was my first wedding back for the new year. Sooo nice not to have to shoot a wedding in the rain! And check out those shoes, how hot! You know i love me some hot shoes at a wedding. Hot bridal party, hot shoes, hot weather, it was a fabulously hot day all around really!
