Fireball 2014

Our local brigades risk life and limb every fire season to keep us safe. The more resources they have, the better (for us AND them), and so the Fireball was born…an epic fundraiser that’s sure to be repeated every year! I had the best fun on the night capturing all the shenanigans and I’m happy that I could give back, even just a little. So here are the pics…enjoy!

A Special Birthday

What better time to capture your extended family than at a special birthday! That’s exactly what Lillian’s family did, at the beautiful Wyreena Cafe in Croydon.

…and baby makes three…

Well hello there :) After an extended break over Christmas, New Year and well into the new school year, I’m back!

I haven’t been completely idle though, I’ve revamped my site a little, introduced a new “express session” option (check it out here), and of course the camera never goes on holiday even when I do :)

Here’s a little peek into what I was doing on my break…my beautiful newborn niece, in beautiful black and white. Enjoy!

And then she was 8…

What 8yo girl doesn’t love a DVD-pizza-craft-lego-sleepover birthday party? I know mine did! They had so much fun, stayed up past midnight…and that’s living dangerously when you’re 8 :)

Balloon fun!

So what would you do if you had a room full of balloons, two small children, and a camera?

A little cousin { Melbourne newborn photographer }

Well this is a long overdue post…my gorgeous little nephew, who was born back in December! Here are some pics from the few days we spent with my sister and her family. I especially love the images of my girls getting to know their newest little cousin…makes my heart happy :)

Photo a day – part two

Here is the second half of January…and for those that missed the first half, click here.

These make me smile so much…last year I had them printed into a book, but this year I want them on a wall somewhere. I’ll show you all the finished product when it’s done :)

Photo a day projects

Last year I started a new project in my personal photography…every January, I will take a photo of my girls for every day of the month. It’s a great way to document everyday life, and to compile a collection of photos over the years where I can see them growing and changing. Anyone can do a project like this, I invite you to give it a go. Even if you just use your smartphone, it’s absolutely do-able. The key is to set a frequency and duration that you know you can stick to…I’ve attempted (and failed!) doing a project 365 a few times, it was just too difficult to do every day for an entire year. But doing one photo a day for the month of January is pretty easy, since we’re on school holidays and the industry in general slows down a bit. So this is my comfort-zone :)

So here is my month so far…I’ll blog the rest at the end of the month. Enjoy!
