I don't have many photo's of my kids together. I have great ones of them separate, but trying to get them together is like a nightmare for me. I get really frustrated. I don't mean to but it happens (I'm sure you can relate).

Well on this particular day we went out to take some photo's. I did get some great ones. And well we were walking back to the car, and I captured this image. This was taken on auto. Yes I normally shoot in manual, however I didn't want to miss the shot, so I switched the dial and this is what I captured.
I adore this image. It reminds me of an image that I took in May 2010, which I also have as a canvas on my wall.
So yes there are no faces, but this image is so very much how my kids are.

Enjoy it as much as I do.

A blossom bud. I'm actually not sure from which tree it's from, so don't ask!

I was however really impressed how it came out. I really love the colours and the depth of field.
Taken with my Tamron 90mm Macro lens.



Catch up and other info

Ok well we are all on the mend.  100% better, yay!  I tell you what it's no fun when you are sick, and your kids are sick at the same time.  No one takes care of mum when she is sick hey.

So what's been happening? I hear you say.  Well I have been doing some 'free' sessions in my home studio. I have this great indoor kit, which I have tested out on my kiddies, but I needed some subjects.  So I posted on facebook (great marketing tool), and got some sessions.  I'm still after some sessions to build up my portfolio. I have a great 'outdoor' portfolio, but need to build up my indoor portfolio.
The sessions I have had are Miss H, a newborn.  She was a premmie, so currently 5 weeks, but still as tiny as a newborn (she's only like 6lbs!).
Then there was Miss M. She is 8 months old, had no hair, but still adorable.
Then siblings Miss J aged 6, and her brother Master J aged 3.5.

I had a great time shooting these sessions.

I am still after the following:
Newborn baby BOY (aged 2 weeks to 6 weeks young)
Baby boy aged 4-10 months old
Girl aged 3
Boy aged 4-7

So if you know of anyone that falls into these categories, email me at for bookings.
These sessions will have the session fee waved.  You will receive NO PRINTS.  Prints are available for purchased however. All models (parents) will need to sign a model release as these images will be used on my website/blog/facebook page for advertising and marketing.

Images of my current sessions will soon be posted, along with my 52 project images.

Thanks for getting this far.

Challenge delay

Ok well my 30 day challenge is not going very well.  On day 6 I got sick (and I'm still recovering).  It's taken a lot out of me, and alas I will to complete 30 consecutive days. I will pick up from where I left off once I'm back at 100%.

Day 4 - Clouds (and w 36)

For day 3, Clouds.
Much better clouds, this was taken in the morning. I just love the shape and the texture.
Added contrast so it would pop a bit more.

So what do you see?



EDIT 29.9.2011
This image is also the image of the week for project 52

Day 3 - something green

Day 3 was suppose to be clouds, but we had seriously crappy clouds, like those whispy ones, which are pathetic to photograph. So I decided to do day 4, which is 'Something green'.
I'm not too sure about the end of this one, I was after a look, and it just wasn't doing it for me, I properly would need to re-shoot at a different time of day.

Either way, Enjoy


Day 2 - what I wore today

On this particular day (Friday). I wore Jeans, a long sleeve top and my kathmandu jacket (which I ended up taking off around lunch time as it got too hot).
And my puma walkers.

I like to be comfortable when I don't have to go anywhere, and well I didn't have to be any where, so hence the extremely casual look.

There are many challenges out there. But today I came across this one (, and I thought "hey why not".
So here is Day 1. A Self portrait. Processed it with a warm/mellow feel in mind.

I love the lines of this shot, and the way the light fell. This is SOOC (straight out of camera), only adjustments is resizing for web.

Week 33, only 20 weeks left to go.
This weeks entry is Kayla, but from a different perspective.
I love the angle of this shot, I just wished I didn't cut off her feet, oh well next time.
