thePROJECT – October 2013

 

Well folks, I’ve changed the way I do my personal project AGAIN.  Project 11/11 seemed like an awesome idea, capturing the everyday, one day a month.  However choosing a specific day didn’t really work if I didn’t have the boys with me that day!  I will admit the ‘Photo-a-day” over summer, (AKA thePROJECT) is also hard for the same reason.   SO.  NOW I will do a monthly post of images:)

This is also coming when I have decided that it’s my goal to take some time out each week to FINALLY sort images of my OWN children.  I have the most fantastic storage system for my beautiful clients.  But if I wanted to find an image of Eman at age 4, I would be struggling via folders upon folders upon folders.  At least until earlier this year.  So they will FINALLY be sorted, and I can FINALLY produce my own photo albums! (7 years late, but hey, good things take time right??!)

So Welcome!  This is our October.  I did of course choose to do this half way into the month, so there’s not the ‘essential’ images I have decided will be included, and  I will be trying to add images of the fur-babies too, cause after all they are part of the family too!  Hope your October was full of fun and happy memories:)x

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”..

Pretty Fairies in Tamworth

Back to our trip to Tamworth for a moment;)

One of the best things about friends being photographers, (and having the most gorgeous children) is an outing to somewhere pretty and having fun with the cameras.  With the youngest two in fairy-dresses, it was a photographers delight – with gorgeous light to boot.  Amanda’s four girls are all just magic in front of the camera.  Each so different in personality.  Honestly I could photography them all day every-day.  And it’s no wonder Amanda does!  (You must check out her beautiful blog HERE!)

Something for photographers: If you didn’t already know, Amanda also produces a variety of Actions for Photoshop and Presets for Lightroom.  Whilst I generally use my own creations,  I adore Amanda’s Actions and have used such in this blog post:)

More from Tamworth coming soon xx

Tamworth – part II

More from our whirlwind trip to Tamworth to visit Amanda and her family.  I’ll be honest, most of these (actually all baring one or two!) were taken on the iPhone, yep I’m a sucker for the iphone, and a lover of Instagram.   I love how moments from everyday life can be captured so easily.  And lets face it, what’s a holiday without a few iPhone “selfies” ;)  enjoy! x

 

The Road to Tamworth – part I

Term 1 of school went super quickly!  Feels like only yesterday we were putting names on pens and pencils and buying a new lunchbox!  All of a sudden it’s Easter holidays!  We decided to take a BIG road-trip.  One of my bestest photography friends Amanda moved to Tamworth from Sydney just over two years ago, and I haven’t been able to “catch up” with her since we photographed a wedding together in Wollongong.  So off we went.

On Easter Sunday we left home around 1pm and got into West Wyalong for the night just after 9pm.  For Easter I made the boys each a Brair Bunny, (although finishing them in the car I put the heads on incorrectly, but shhhh! don’t tell the boys!) and they were a hit.  E named his Lucus Parker and Ash named his Jackson.  We found some great parks along the way for the boys to play and stretch our legs, and all in all, for 9 hours of adventure, we had a pretty different and nice Easter!

Some scenes from day one!
