Cleo | Melbourne Baby Photography

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had the privilege to photograph this gorgeous family!  I have visited each child at least 4 times during their first year, so have watched them all grow for a while!

Presenting Mum her latest gallery, brought a sad but important image to her, totally by accident…  This family have two gorgeous cats (and I love cats!)  and all this time I’ve failed to get an image of the two of them together (and certainly not in the family photos!)  But in the latest session, I captured Cleo watching over our session.  It was the first image in the gallery.

I woke up this morning to this email:

“The photos are absolutely beautiful as ever.

I had a lovely surprise on opening them although it made me cry, seeing a beautiful picture of little Cleo, as sadly she had to be put to sleep last Friday, as she had a stroke which had left her back legs paralyzed.

We now have a beautiful picture of her so thank you!”

Capturing family pets is just so important, and even if it’s not the image I’d been hoping for over the years, just goes to show that the accidental ‘snapshot’ can be just so important.  RIP Cleo, and my thoughts are with the gorgeous J family xx

Swimming in the pool is very exhausting.  So is playing with friends.  Ash asked for a ‘nap’ and the ipad.  10 minutes later, even that was too exhausting..

Today when you woke up, it seemed you had grown a foot overnight.  The pants you wore last week (your favourites) are suddenly 4 inches too short.  Last year you were one of the shortest at school, I’m wondering if this year you’ll be one of the tallest in your class…

Usually it’s me that gets eaten alive by mosquitoes, and it doesn’t help that I’m allergic to one breed of them (yup, there’s a few, stay away from the stripy ones!)  The kids, up until this week have escaped their blood sucking path.  Eman scared me one evening at midnight, out of bed, with red dots all over him.  “Mum I’m itchy”… well perhaps the 14 bites over your arms and face might be why..

The horrible little insect got him twice on his left eye.  The next morning it was slightly less swollen, but made his already LONG eyelashes stick out straight even more.  I couldn’t resist.  They are lashes every girl dreams of..
