Mr. T – ACOCP Melbourne

Met this gorgeous family at the Royal Children’s Hospital today through the ACOCP.  Mr. T is 7 weeks old.  We were lucky enough to venture out of NICU and even out into the garden! Which I think was Mr. T’s second time outside!

It was a pleasure to spend the morning with you Mum & Dad, I hope you enjoy the images xx


Mr R, 12 weeks – ACOCP session

Today I had the absolute pleasure of spending the morning with this gorgeous family.  Hailing from NSW they have been living in Melbourne since just before the birth of their 5th baby boy, Mr B.  At only one day old he had surgery on his heart.

When I arrived Mr B gave me nothing but smiles.  His 4 older brothers in a bundle of excitement told me all about the Transformer 2 movie, so much so I actually want to see it! (just don’t tell my husband or any of my male friends!)  We went for a walk to the Royal Children’s Hospital’s cafeteria courtyard for some family photos.  As the weather seemed to get cooler, not warmer with the day, I ventured inside with mum & Mr B for some indoor photos at the family resource centre.  Everywhere we went this little boy stopped the female nurses & volunteers!  He is just gorgeous!  However, the smiles slightly faded as the camera came out!  I did sneak a couple of smiles (when I don’t think he knew!)

Mum, was lovely to meet you and your beautiful family, and I couldn’t have thought of a better way to spend the morning of my birthday but to take photos with you all.  I wish your family all the very best for tomorrow, and know Mr B will be an absolute trooper with his second big heart surgery.

I hope you enjoy the preview Mum & Dad! xx


SPECIAL! Mother’s Day Mini-Sessions (ACOCP Fundraiser)


As many of my clients & blog readers know I’m a proud member of the ACOCP.  We are currently holding a fundraiser to raise much needed funds to keep the organization providing this wonderful service to families around Australia.
For those who are not familiar with the ACOCP:

(from website)The Australian Community Of Child Photographers (formerly The Australian Charity of Child Photographers) is a volunteer organisation of child photographers from all over Australia who have come together to form an organisation dedicated to giving the gift of photographic memories to families that have experienced stillbirths, premature and ill infants and children in the Neonatal Intensive Care Units of their local hospitals, as well as children with serious and terminal illnesses.”

What’s involved:
The sessions are available as gift vouchers to celebrate Mothers Day.  Vouchers may be purchased as gifts or for your own family.
Mini Sessions will last 15-20 minutes, and include approx 10-20 images in an online gallery.  Your sessions also includes a Free 6×8” print, chosen by photographer, and 5% off standard pricelist.
There are two types of sessions available:

  • Studio session & on-location at a park in Carlton.  All sessions will be held on the 16th May, 2009, with a waiting list for the next available day (likely to be late May, early June)
  • There are approx 10-15 gift vouchers available, and these will be booked quickly so please secure your booking asap!
  • Vouchers are not available for newborn or maternity sessions, due to the nature of the time allocated for sessions.
  • Sessions are a fantastic way to have family photographs, or individual photographs of the children.  No more than 4 people can be included in the session, however if you have a larger family you may purchase two timeslots, and have more images presented in your gallery.
  • Mini sessions are fantastic as an addition to a standard session. For example – for family photographs, to photograph an older sibling after a newborn session, or for children who are not lovers of the camera!  (For example my eldest son!)  15 minutes isn’t a long time to grab their attention, and have beautiful professional photographs of them as they grow!
  • Mini-sessions are great fun and quick!

How it works:

  • Pay $50 directly to the ACOCP via paypal (credit card) and book in your time & preference for Point Cook Studio or outdoor location.  You will receive a FREE 6×8” print.  A 5% discount applies to the standard pricelist for orders from these sessions.  You MAY purchase two timeslots if you wish.
  • Gift Vouchers for the mother’s day special will be emailed to you to use or give out for mother’s day.  Sessions are non-refundable.  If weather is against us for the outdoor location, an alternative time will be made available.
  • Your images will be presented in an online gallery 1-2 weeks after your session.  Orders may be placed during a 1 week ordering period.
