Carlton Gardens Engagement Photography | Lee Yen & Gary

Lee Yen told me they didn’t like photographs.  I think she was lying ;)  This gorgeous couple have been very busy with study, work and travel that we very almost didn’t find a date we could hold their engagement shoot!  We were all very excited for this session to also include their baby, who unfortunately wouldn’t be allowed at their wedding at Stones of the Yarra Valley.  And may I just say, THE most behaved puppy ever??!  Very excited to be sharing their amazing day at Stones very soon! x

Montsalvat Wedding Photography | Amy & Dan

Get ready for an epic post! As I said in their engagement photography post, “Amy and Dan are one of those couples who just ooze romance, love and fun”, and well, their wedding could almost be said to be themed around such!  What an amazing day… Honestly this is one of those weddings where I’m lost for words to describe it, so I’ll simply let the images do the talking!  Congratulations Amy & Dan, certainly a wedding to remember! xx

Amy & Dan | St Andrews Market Engagement Photography

When Amy and Dan arrived to discuss their wedding photography and I saw her floral Doc Martins, I knew we’d get along.  I had the same beloved Doc’s in a different colour.  When they left (after chatting for two hours) I said to Alex, “If they don’t hire us to shoot their wedding, I hope they invite us!”  Amy and Dan are one of those couples who just ooze romance, love and fun.  Whilst we chatted at our meeting they mentioned their favorite place to go on the weekends was the St Andrews Market and describing it I exclaimed what an awesome place for their pre-wedding shoot that would be.  So there we went!  They brought along Dan’s other ‘baby’ – his awesome vintage car.  The sun was shining, it was  stunning Spring day and all round it was a fun morning full of laughs.  Cannot wait for their wedding this coming November, I can tell it’s going to be something pretty epic:)

There’s a baby in our house…

And no, not the “real” variety (as my youngest would say, ‘Mummy I want a REAL baby, a PERSON baby.’)

Introducing “Baby Doctor”.  My son’s 5th birthday present.  (He lost on the REAL baby, and happy with second best, a baby RABBIT) Yes he loves Doctor Who.  And you can just guess what the hutch is called – (if your a doctor who fan anyway!!) Yes, your right.  The TARDIS.

Baby Doctor is just gorgeous.  Loves to be held, and when I open his hutch jumps up for a cuddle.  So far the cats aren’t TOO fazed by the newcomer.  In fact I’m not sure if Sebbie (13 years old) is scared, babysitting or looking at Baby Doctor like an old man… “oh you are a stupid kitten… look at you”..

Babies of 2012 | Melbourne Baby Photography

2012, what a year! In fact I feel a little exhausted thinking back on it and have been looking forward to 2013.  I feel this is THE YEAR.  Many of my gorgeous family and friends feel the same way, there’s something in the air and I feel this year is going to be the best ever!

Without dwelling, 2012 also had so many amazing moments. Iris Creations moved into a gorgeous new studio, and on the Photography Awards front; whilst unexpected, did extremely well, and finished off the year as a Major Open Finalist in the People & Portrait category in the International Loupe Awards.  (5th place to be exact!)

And of course, my clients.  I have met so many GORGEOUS new little souls, who I’ve been blessed to photograph.  I used to joke about being the Melbourne Newborn Baby BOY photographer.  However 2012 saw 90% (maybe even 98%!) girls!  What’s in the water!??

So without further ado, meet the Babies of 2012!

I hope you enjoy x
