In the spirit of Christmas.....

So l'm feeling all christmas-y and have decided to offer all my blog reading clients a little something special.

There will be rules with the deal though, so read carefully to see if you qualify!

I am offering 50% off reprints.


1. It must be from a session that has already been ordered on before this post date.

2. It must be of photos that YOU have already ordered, and can only be the same size or smaller than previousy ordered.

3. Will only be in the same style as previously ordered (colour or black & white).

4. This deal is for reprints ONLY. I will not be editing new photos at 50% off prices.

5. All 50% off reprint orders must be placed by Monday 7th December, and will then be available for pre-christmas delivery.

These are the rules, no exceptions. If you missed out because you have not yet ordered, sorry. If this is successful l may offer the same deal next year. So if you don't know what to get for a christmas present, how about some photos?

So come on, get ordering!!

I'm still here. Really.

Just very time poor. It's hard work with 4 children and trying to run a business!!

So, l've decided to make some changes.

They will come in to effect from the 1st of January (easy to remember).

The first change will be the introduction of a sitting fee and there will be a slight increase in print prices, as l have not had a price increase since l started, l believe this to be reasonable. I have equipment & props to replace and maintain. My website will be up and running before this time, with all prices/policies listed there.

I need to find a good work/life balance, l have to start somewhere.

For those of you wondering, l am now booked for October and l have only limited spaces for Nov/Dec. Cut off for pre-christmas orders is mid-november. I will continue to take sessions on after that time, but they will not be guaranteed for christmas.

We are family.

It's funny. I don't really think my children look alike, but here they do!
Jumping the gun here. He's a month old in this picture, but l love it so much, l had to share it. I think l will put this on a canvas...


More of Kye...

He's pretty much all l've photographed in the past 6 weeks (although l am back at work, l'd still rather share these).

Just blog it.

It's been so long since l last blogged, and l feel guilty. I was told the other day that Kate's girls want me to update the blog, so here am! (Sorry girls!)

We are very excited to introduce to you our sweet little baby boy

Kye Alexander Jordan.

He was born on th 18th May, after a four and a half hour labour and weighed 8lb12oz.

Life has been pretty busy since then, with four children to run after, l'm back at work, have had my camera sent away to be fixed after it broke, and have been busy busy busy trying to document the sweet stage of newborn-ness before its gone in a flash. So here he is, our little cutie. We love him so much and wonder how we got by with only 3. His big brother & sisters love him to bits too.

This first picture is at 3 days new.

The rest below are all from day 8.

I have heaps more to post, will try to get some more on soon.

Do l get paid overtime for this?

41 weeks, 2 days and counting.
Will this baby never come out?
So here l am. Still. Waiting.
As you do.
So with all this spare time on my hands, l managed to rustle up enough energy to take a couple more photos.
Without further ado :)

While three is still three.
An attempt at a group shot, with remote but remote didn't stretch far enough = take what you can get!

Ummm, disregard stretch marks (I am 41 weeks pregnant here, people!)
Well, hopefully will be back soon with some newborn pics! And info on my return to work coming soon, too.

Sweet Nothing....

Well, the time has finally arrived. With 3 weeks until our baby is expected to arrive, l have finished the last of my sittings. I am still taking/processing orders right through my leave, so feel free to call or email if you have order related questions. Towards the end of May l will post about my return to work, as well as emailing those who have expressed an interest in booking a session upon my return. If l promised to email and you haven't heard from my by the end of May, give me a holler, l may have overlooked you!
I think that's all l have to say at the moment, l am hoping to get time to post some of my recent sessions, so keep an eye out for them. I will also announce bubs arrival here when l get home from hospital!
Thanks to everyone for their well wishes and support!

So, this is me a couple of weeks ago (l've got bigger since then!). And just so you know, l do maternity sessions all the time, but because of the private nature of these type of photos, they are never blogged! Keep it in mind if you're expecting!

My baby.....

But probably not the one you're thinking of!
This is our adorable new puppy, 9 week old Coco. She is soooo cute, l look into her beautiful eyes and am smitten!
She is a chocolate labrador for anyone who doesn't recognise the breed.
Will post my maternity photos soon, so stay tuned. :)

Maternity leave.

Finally got around to looking at my schedule and comparing it to my due date and have now set my cut-off for sessions.

I will take session bookings for dates up until Friday 17th April. There will only be limited places available, so get in early to ensure you don't miss out! This date is the last friday of the school holidays, so there will be plenty of time in there to capture your school aged children as well. You can contact me either by email or call my mobile on 0488 582 543. I have only three weeks until my due date from this cut-off, so there will be no exceptions in booking after this time.

As for my return date, l am thinking towards the end of May, but will have to wait and see how l am coping with the new bub. Preference will be given to newborns and younger babies during this time, as they change so quickly. You are welcome to leave an email at any time during my leave expressing an interest in a session. I will try to reply as often as possible. I will post on the blog when l am ready to get back to it!

And since l can' post without pics, here's my pretties (and can someone explain why my six year old looks more like she is sixteen?)

Baby Love

I'm so lucky! Today one of my good friends brought me her baby and said l could do whatever l liked with him. Seeing how she trusted me not to break her baby in half, l decided to try something a tad different. Hope you all like the results. It was fun. He only peed twice and didn't scream too much!
For you, Bronni, with much love xx

Two little cuties.....

They really are so so cute. Very well behaved for 2 little boys!

I'm a bad blogger!

I feel like l'm never here! And checking my stats l see l have been very neglectful. What can l say?

I'm so VERY tired at the moment, that l just never make it here. And here is the reason why :-

Only 11.5 weeks to go! I will be having some time off in April/May, so if you want a session booking best to get in before then.

More of baby-rama.....

Still swimming in newborns (but would love to have more - hint hint), these are fast becoming some of my favourite sessions. I am in the midst of ordering more wraps and blankets and other bits and pieces to keep these creative newborn sessions fresh and different.

Here is a peek of one of my most recent newbies.....
