She and the Murphy Men:

My gorgeous bestie went and had her second son only hours after we had finished our quite enjoyable visit with them just over a week ago..So it was with much happiness that we ALL trekked back down to meet this sweet little fellow:

And just a few out takes to show you how gorgeous my own kids are – Look at them helping me pose and arrange sweet ‘baby jam’ – and how much they adore this new little friend – and his big brother:

My darling friends Nikki and Justin brought a perfect bundle of pink into their very blue world this past week. And it was my privlege to capture her in all her glorious girliness…Even if Nik was still coimg to terms with all things feminine and tiny – I am good at it:

Welcome my dear friends and Miss Bella.. to the delightful world of frills, bows, ribbons, headbands, skirts, satin, nailpolish, lace, dresses, lip gloss,  tights, hair ties, pink, pink and more pink…..It’s a lovely place to be…


For Kat:

I love that my ‘housework’ is editing little gorgeous munchkins! What could be sweeter? A sneak peek for you Kat and family.. Proofs winging their way to you tomorrow…

Better get back to that other ‘housework’…Sigh….

Newborn Nate:

Everytime I photograph a newborn I am reminded of why I love doing this.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s hard work..They have no idea what you require of them. They have this terrible drinking habit, that both helps and hinders the process…. They get tired REALLY quickly and the parents keep the house as hot as HADES..Which makes the photographer -hefting props and bundles of blankets around, sweat like mad bugger!
BUT…I love cuddling them and gently placing them just so..and when they are photographed with Mum and Dad – well it’s hard to get a BAD photo..And then when I get home..I am really supposed to print out the proofs for the client to let them choose what to edit..But I can’t help myself I end up picking out a bucket load of my fave’s, spending time playing with them and then putting them up here…

So without further ado:

J and K… you really do have the most eclectic bunch of cool photo props in your place – I may have to hire out your home and surrounds for other clients!!
And I did learn a few valuable lessons..If you want your babe client  asleep..Get him fed in whatever cloth prop you plan on photographing him in! Sweetheart boy..The only sweet dozing shots we managed was cuddled up on Mum! He woke up everytime we manouvered him into position – and who would blame him..Some of the tight places we were trying squeeze this not so little angel – my gosh – we must have looked quite a sight to the two toddlers and other babe looking on..The three adults squishing and lifting this little body into picnic baskets and what not!
Thanks guys..It was a great session…
..Nate is gorgeous..
