Sibling Connections – Family Photography Melbourne

 

Playing a little blog catch up!  I have photographed this family many times over the years, and many times in this one spot.  I’m sure one day we will be able to measure their growth on this tree!  One thing that I adore, is the connection between sister and brother.  It’s not forced, it’s not posed.  It just is.  And it’s beautiful. x

Project 11/11 – December

“The days are so long, but the years are so short”

Tuesday 11th December 2012:  What a huge day!  After breakfast and the school run Ash and I had a quiet (haha!) day around the house.  Friends popped in for a coffee, and we chased the cat for a cuddle.  After getting upset he couldn’t help me with the cooking, I let Ash de-shell hard boiled eggs, which was a very funny exercise!  After school E started his Christmas cards and we had a play with Papi, Aunty Megs, Uncle Richie and Baby Riley (who’s almost two so I wont be able to call him that anymore!!)  A lazy dinner and a spot of reading, it was time for bed, with Ash falling asleep on the couch! 

And because it was December, a few snaps of our Christmas preparations!

 

About Project 11/11:
I am guilty of not taking enough images of my children.  I did in the early years, hundreds and hundreds of images.  But soon it was “oh no mummy not a photo”.  And nothing to really document our lives.  Mobile phones have bigger and better cameras now, and everyone is embracing the convenience of having a camera RIGHT THERE, at every moment.  So another use for this project is to capture the everyday on the BIG camera, not just the iphone.  And it also gives a slight insight that is the ‘fun crazy chaos’ of raising two boys and my day as a photographer.

Get prepared for a lot of new posts!  Now the new website is up and looking beautiful, I can finally share some of the amazing sessions I’ve had over the last few months!

At 5:41am I received a text message from one of my favorite clients with the news that little Mr W had been born! I photographed Miss H and Mum & Dad’s GORGEOUS beach wedding in Adelaide on the 11/11/11!  These are the moments of my job that are just the best.  Being there for all the amazing moments in a family’s life.  It’s hard not to start to feel like a ‘member of the family’! Congratulations again, He is just beautiful! x

Welcome – to the NEW Iris Creations Photography!

The name Iris Creations was born when I was about 15 years old when my best friend nick-named me Iris (but I’m not going into that story!)  Since Iris Creations Photography was launched over six years ago I had a vision in my head for the “look”.  It’s taken a few variations and a few changes to finally become the business that it is today.

Within the portrait world, I specialise in Newborn Photography & Maternity Photography.  But my other love is photo-documenting Weddings.  Those moments in life where the LOVE is so intoxicating it makes everyone smile, no matter what.  But blending these different elements didn’t appear to be easy.

Enter stage right, the amazing team at Netra Chetty, who designed the new logo & flower element.  I like to be a little different, and whilst I wanted the soft delicate element of a flower didn’t want it to be a obvious “iris”.  Thankyou girls, I adore the new logo!

Enter stage left, the AMAZING Kristy Winter, who has put it all together to create the website and Facebook page… LOOK!  Isn’t it GORGEOUS!??  Honestly, if you could see into my office and studio you would see me jumping up and down like a child on Christmas morning!

This is the new Iris Creations and I’m SO SO SO happy!

And now, to celebrate, meet the beautiful Kristy and her youngest gorgeous daughter Shae, who was the model for one of my Silver Awards at this years Australian Professional Photography Awards.  (For more information about the awards, please visit HERE) It’s always a little nerve-wracking to photograph another photographer, however the beauty of my friendship with Kristy is we always seem to have similar ideas and visions, and I HOPE this one has turned out just the way she visualised!

Enjoy xx

Project 11/11 – November

“The days are so long, but the years are so short”

Sunday 11th November & Monday 12th November 2012:  For something a little different this month the project was captured over two days, as the boys spent the day with daddy, and I (like the rest of Melbourne) was suffering badly from Hay fever and related migraines!.  I enjoyed a relaxing day (although editing!) at my mothers beautiful apartment with the sun shining, before heading off to photograph a Christening in Toorak.  The next day, Ash & I had a “lazy day” playing with the iPad and I knitted.  We picked up E from school who spent some time practicing his shoelace tying, before heading off the beach for a spring afternoon.  E also had his classroom toy “Froglet” who of course had to come along.  Ash went from being Iron-man to Spider-man back to Ash with around 5 clothing changes in the day!
