One. Already!

My beautiful baby girl turned one on Friday. I cannot believe how quick the year has gone. She is such a little miss these days, and is an absolute delight. We are still breastfeeding, and after all of our issues in the beginning- this is a huge accomplishment. I am so proud of both of us. Another big milestone is that she is now dummy free. It was pretty painless- so i’m silly for not doing it earlier.

On Saturday she had a little birthday party. She is not well at the moment, but still had a lot of fun. A hit for her was the watermelon! Loves it! For her birthday she got a gorgeous white cane pram, and some “babies” amongst other things. She totally adores all things girl, which makes my heart smile- BIG smiles. She is an utter joy and we are all so lucky to have her in our life. Happy Birthday princess!! We love you so much xx

Change of plans!! | Sydney Newborn, baby and child photographer

Well… Our plans have changed. We found out yesterday that our move to Darwin is being put of until mid 2008. My husband is being sent away for a while with the army, the the kids and i are moving up to Sydney!!
This is now happening earlier than anticipated. We will be leaving Melbourne on the 17th November. I’ve sadly had to cancel my November session’s and refer my clients onto some other Melbourne photographers. Unfortionately this is our life right now as a military family.

I now have roughly six weeks left in Melbourne, and have some weekend openings. I am available for bookings:
October:12th, 18th, 26th
November: 2nd 9th

If you would like to book a session with me, please let me know.

Now onto Sydney! I will be based in the Hills district around the West Pennant Hills, Castle Hill, Baulkham Hills areas- exact location to be decided soon. I will be available for limited bookings from December 1st. From the 1st Feburary 2009, I will be more solidly available.

Because a post is never finish without a photo- Here is two more of James. I’m proofing his session right now, and if Paula is reading this.. the gallery should be finished within a few days!! Will be in touch!


Kylie - Oh the life of an army wife. I really need to get down to you so you can take some pics of my two! Was going to wait until Baden was sitting. Humm – will be in touch lovely!September 17, 2008 – 10:44 pm
