Here's a few of my fave's!

So I thought I would share some of the ‘non-christmasy’ images from the last couple of Christmas mini sessions to give you an idea of what to expect! As Ive said in my ‘about’ page, it’s lots of fun, singing, bad jokes and giggles. xx  

Happy Fathers Day!

To all the wonderful Dad’s I have had the pleasure of shooting this year (and those that are reading right now!)  I hope you have a wonderful Father’s day! Belinda x

My final Autumn family session

What a wonderful way to say goodbye to Autumn! Whoever said you should never work with children and animals had no idea on the fun they were missing out on.  I met Bingo and his family at the usual Autumn secret spot and had a ball.  Hilarious! If you have a four legged member of your family, maybe consider bringing them along to your family session.  As you can see, we all had a great time! x

And some black and white, just because! x

I know I posted this family earlier today, but I HAD to share some of these quieter black and white shots. Yes!  He was actually quiet and still part of the time.   ;o)

Monkey Marcus

A couple of weeks ago, I went to my fave autumn spot with a wonderful family of three.  Meet Marcus and his family! This little guy had me running, jumping and the most funnest part, saying ‘Mine!’  ‘My Mummy, My Daddy, My mandarin!’  He was so much FUN! And Mum and Dad were too, happy to run about, roll in the leaves and give lots and lots of tickles to Marcus.  Im pretty sure its safe to say, we all had a great morning. Thanks for coming out to the country guys, I hope Marcus slept all the way home! x

Or in Black and white!

Me again! I know! Two posts in the same day! But what I wanted to show you was this, that even though the location is stunning in colour, sometimes black and white can be called for.  It can change the feel of an image, for me, the third last image here really illustrates that.  In black and white the image is ‘quieter’.  Even though he only stopped for a second, it shows the quiet side, yes he does have one lol! Let me know what you think.  Should a location like this just be in colour, or do you think, like me, that sometimes black and white can be just as stunning. x

Pretty cute test subject, don't you think? ;o)

So, I decided seeing as the sun was shining, and we had been stuck at home with sick older brother, that Seb and I would head up to my beautiful mini session location to check it out.  I have a few families heading up there this weekend and was paranoid that all the wind and rain we have had of late would have stolen my beautiful leaves away from me! But as you can see, it didn’t. I think this will be the last weekend of it though.  And Healesville greeted us with its crisp morning beauty. Have a look at my very active two year old, running (me) about in the leaves!  He, did, not, stop, running!  Well until that last shot, when I asked him to stop running.  I think he was thinking ‘Why?” xx PS- please excuse his ‘non-photo session worthy attire’.  It was a very last minute decision to head up ;o)  

Waiting on hold…

Moving house kinda sucks.  Its not the packing/unpacking, its not all the mess and chaos, I find the most frustrating part being on hold to phone companies. BUT to make it feel a more positive experience for all, here are a couple bursts of colour, hopefully they boost your day like they have mine! x

Autumn has arrived! Yippee!!!

I love seeing these guys, they have a few sessions a year, around the time of each of the kids birthdays.  And as kids have  a habit of doing, are bigger and bigger each time.  Not only do they change in size, but their personalities develop, which is such a treat to watch. Here is a sneak of what we got up to this morning, funnily enough I will start with some black and white fun, leaving you with a taste of what Melbourne Autumn colour is all about.   And a taste of what Autumn gorgeousness is…. Remember, the leaves won’t be here for long, as much as we would like them to be ;o) Book a session before they are all gone! x

Surf's up!

I really am catching up on these sessions, this one was from WAY back in November.  I made the trip down to Phillip Island and it was so worth it! Even though I have been going down to the island for more years than I care to remember, I have never been to this beach.  Guys, thanks so much for sharing your little piece of heaven with me.  Also for allowing me to record these special memories for you, I had so much fun and came home with pockets full of sand. There were so many great images, I just can’t share them all, but here are a few. 3<
