Day Six | Canberra baby photography

Today I allowed Maddi to stand on her stool and look at her special treasures in her room. Although she is a bit of a tom boy, she still loves all things pretty and pink!

Day Two | Canberra Photographer

Another girls day today. The boys are still camping and fishing. We are very much looking forward to seeing them tomorrow as spending three days with my temperamental teenager four year old is wearing thin.

This afternoon we went and had dinner in at a park near our house that we stumbled on whilst driving around the area. We met a lovely boy and his mother (who may be reading this blog – hi!!) who were kind enough to share some bread with Maddi!

Day One | Canberra Baby Photography

Hello again lovely friends!

Those that follow my business facebook page would already be aware but for those that don’t, we are officially living in Canberra!! The move went well although after almost four weeks on the move the kids have been enjoying being “home” with their belongings.

I am officially booking Canberra newborns and babies for photography sessions. Please contact me (using the “contact” button above) if you would like to book a session and i can direct you to a brand new private client website which contains all sorts of information about getting your babe photographed by me!

Onto the main reason for my post. Four years ago a group of my photographer friends and myself began a project using the holiday month of January to photograph our own children each day. I managed to do it for that year only. Each year between now and then i have been having a break from my camera over that month. I decided that this year i would participate again! These days my children’s lives are documented though my iPhone and i want to make a special effort to capture their lives for a month.

My husband has taken Caleb on a boys camping and fishing trip for a few days. Madison and I have been having some girly time together! We went to the movies this morning to see Happy Feet 2, and tonight we had a bath and painted nails. As a treat she is sleeping in our bed tonight and watching the Smurf movie with an apple to snack on!
