You may recall seeing this little miss quite frequently on my blog and usually with a big smile on her face. She is such a sweetheart!
Today I photographed her at the gardens and her dress matched the gorgeous autumn colours perfectly.
I was so happy to see the sun come out yesterday for my mini session at the gardens especially after it had rained all week.
I am just loving the gorgeous Autumn colours, as I do every year, they photograph so beautifully. Another thing that photographs beautifully is handsome almost one year old boys with big blue eyes and a cheeky smile and little William was no exception. I enjoyed capturing some lovely moments between him and his mummy.
Sandy, it was lovely to meet you and I hope you enjoy your sneak peek…
Last week I heard that Kim and Dave from Heart 107.3, along with many other generous businesses, were planning on making over Willow’s Organic Oasis. I was excited to hear that I would be joining them on the day to document the work that was being put into this worthwhile project.
Little Willow has been diagnosed with Turner’s Syndrome and suffers from many health problems. Willow’s mum has been searching for alternate therapies to help her daughter as well as making an organic garden so that she is able to feed Willow with organic produce.
You can follow the progress of Willow’s garden by liking her facebook page here.

Newborn babies bring joy, love and hope. When 2 week old twins Lucas and Ryan arrived their family were given those things twofold.
I am always intrigued by twins, watching them snuggle up together and thinking how a few short weeks earlier they spent their days in the womb that way. Observing their little personalities you can see that although they look similar they already have their little differences.
A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to travel to the Gold Coast for a workshop with Jodie Otte (website) which was held at the studio of Wild Spirit Photography.
It was such a great experience and I learnt so much in these few days about lighting and posing. I can’t wait to be able to put all this knowledge into practice.
Here are a few photos from the workshop…
I think Mother Nature confused the season change over and gave us Winter instead of Autumn.
Leah contacted me soon after her last session to discuss taking family shots for her 40th birthday while she had her whole family together from various parts of the country. Lucky for us we managed to avoid the rain and capture some beautiful shots.
Leah I hope you had a lovely birthday lunch. I will be in touch when I complete your full gallery.
My recent competition brought to my attention some exceptional business in and around my local area.
I have asked Andrea Webster (owner of Southern TazPilates) to tell more information on what her business is about…
SOUTHERN TAZPILATES is a professional allied health business located in Brighton and Sandy Bay. Southern TazPilates offers Clinical Pilates classes and movement therapy and both human and equine Myofascial Release and Craniosacral Therapy. Southern TazPilates caters for all ages and abilities.
Pilates focuses on the correct activation of specific muscle groups to assist in core stability and skeletal support. Through Pilates changes can be noticed in strength, flexibility, balance, posture and the tone of muscles.
Apart from fun and fitness other benefits include relief from back or joint pain, re-education of muscle patterns after an accident or illness, stress-release and pre-natal post-natal therapy. Specialty classes are also available for sport conditioning such as dance, equestrian and football. Andrea is registered through the Australian Pilates Method Association (APMA), a nationally recognised association.
Myofascial Release is a direct pressure technique which facilitates correction of functional and structural issues. MFR releases ligament, tendon and muscle allowing then for the bone to return to normal function. MFR helps with musculoskeletal dysfunction as a result of injury or illness by restoring range of motion (ROM), athletic ability, power, strength and endurance.
Southern TazPilates is the only business of its type outside the city area and has been welcomed by the wider Brighton community. The in-studio clinical equipment enables a wide variety of programs to be offered at varying levels of difficulty. Southern TazPilates provides choice of mat classes from beginner to advanced. It also caters for private and small group studio-equipment sessions. Health fund rebates apply. If you have any further questions please contact Andrea on 0439 938 403 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
A session with 7 week old Alex was the perfect way to begin 2011. When Alex’s mum contacted me before Christmas Alex was just a little older than my usual newborn sessions. Throughout the session we captured some gorgeous wide eyed smiley shots and a few minutes of peaceful sleep.
Bec, it was nice to meet you guys and I hope you like your little sneak peek.
