P.S - I've noticed that when i upload photos to here, they loose their sharpness, is there a way to make sure that doesn't happen?

The Day I came to be.

March Thirtieth, Two Thousand and Ten. {The day i came to be}

Tonight, I peered into the mirror and thought I caught sight of the six year old me, gaps in my teeth, hair shorter, face rounder, the younger me, staring straight back at me. But literally, in a blink of my very own eye, there I was again, to my very own surprise. The sixteen-year-old-girl staring back at me, with no idea quite yet what she wants to do, or who she wants to be. As i gripped the steering wheel for the first time tonight, i laughed but not because of the hilarity because of the actual 'am i seriously doing this?' To me, I am a baby. To me, i should still be on daddy's shoulders and getting cuddles from mummy. To me, i am six years old. Not sixteen. I looked back in that same mirror tonight and suddenly all that lingered in the back of my mind was…




No one.

Thank-you to all my beautiful friends for making today more special, for the cards, the words, the presents, the chocolate, the hugs. And to my mummy miss loulou, for those flowers that made me want to cry. I. am. too. lucky.

Sixteen years ago, to the exact minute that i will be posting this. I came to be.

So there it is, Happy Birthday to me, and to all those other amazing souls born on this wonderful day, happy birthday to you :)

Much, much love,


PS. Guess who got a new lens? I did. Miss Sophie this afternoon, my first shots with my brand new lens...And wow, i am in love.

Dramatic Black and white: I heart Faces.

This weeks theme is: Dramatic Black and White. For me, this image radiates serenity but the black and white, and her eyes closed seems to show a dramatic edge to the picture..

What do you think?

Head on over to IHeartFaces for more lovely entries :)

Alex and Taylah - Careerlink Family Breakfast 2010.

I am here.

I am breathing.

I am, truly I am.

I'm just so tired.

Oh and did anyone see the forecast for Adelaide today.

It said rain.

And oh yes, rain it did, oh it did indeed.

But we braved it, and i now have 54894893 images to proof...

To you, from me:

I'm just about to head off to bed, but wanted to share this re-edited image of Miss Ella first.

Also: if anyone is looking for a beautiful song...

The Devil's tears by Angus and Julia Stone.


Give it a listen.

Three new favourites, re-opened tonight, re-vamped.

Love, love, love.

Miss Angelina

And little miss beauty. She was well and truly a natural in front on the camera...

Let me know what you think :)


Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Miss Sophie.

She rarely lets me take photos of her, so tonights image is from December. {Late posting it, I know.}

But it's been re-edited.

Let me know what you think?

I heart Faces.

The theme this week is 'I heart angles'

I couldn't help myself. While i know i use this angle quite a bit, it has become one of my favourites. I think it's because it really brings out the subject's eyes. Esspecially when you have eyes like Alex...

Melt me why don't you?

Gah...head on over to IHeartFaces for more entries...

Sunday Night.

Once again, another busy weekend. So i am using a collage of Friday Night's Walk to the Restaurant.

However, some exciting news.

This weekend I will be shooting an event, and I am even being paid :) Exciting isn't it? It is for my mothers business Careerlink, which is holding a breakfast on Sunday, so stay tuned for pictures...

Also, a few people have been asking how i process my images. Unfortunately I am not lucky enough to have PhotoShop make use of Gimp and Photoscape. They are both great programmes and i highly recommend them if you don't have PhotoShop.

Hope you've all had loveley weekends.

And this is why I do it.

My apologies for no posts in the past few days. It's been hectic. My few hours of quietness were last night, dinner with the fam fam.

Above is Mummoo.

Above is one of those images that makes your heart beat faster when you see the final product.

Yes, i do love to photograph sunflare, it's becoming an addiction.

Tell me what you think :) xx

Wordless Wednesday.

Tonight, Emily, my lovely nine year old (going on nineteen) year old sister. 

As i am drowned in work and have nothing else to say...have a lovely Wednesday evening.

Waiting for this week to be over...

I {wish} i had the time to pick up my camera tonight, but unfortunately, i don't.

So quickly, just popping in to share this shot of Alex from a few weeks back. And the other from last night. Two of my favourite portrait shots of him, so far. It's the eyes, i think.

Anyway, once again, thank-you for the lovely comments and some who have emailed me. I will hopefully be able to attend to them rather soon..

I heart Faces.

This weeks theme is "Bundled up." While we never get snow where i live, it does get coldish, and this particular picture was taken today of little Alex, at home feeling a little sick, bundled up in his dino dressing gown.

I must admit, even while running a temperature and feeling a little 'off', he still manages to look quite sweet.

Head on over to IHeartFaces for more entries :)

Oh and PS- Excuse his uneven fringe. He cut it himself. Enough said. But no fear, it's growing out...

Miss Ella.

Miss Ella.

Not only my best friend, but too beautiful for words.

These are for you my love of all loves, and oh how pretty you are.

They are gorgeous aren't they? {Click on then to view full size..}

Let me know what you think.

Here comes the sun.

9.37am | one autumn morning

And yes, i am still alive, and trying to post a picture a day, but i've been busy :) And thank-you to all the comments and emails, they are too lovely...

Have beautiful weekend.


Thursday, March 11, 2010

And oh how i love.

{Don't be pushed by your problems, be led by your dreams.}

Image: Ella, a sunshiney shot in December that, i believe, matches the song. Can. Not. Get. Sick. Of. This. Picture.

So pretty, so lovely, so beautiful.

Smile, baby.

I have the worst headache, and i believe i am so tired that i may just drop to the floor after posting this photo.

It's been a long day and a long week, and i want the weekend back...

However on a brighter note; this photo was taken on the weekend and makes me smile:

Rain, rain.

Dear Weather,

It's March 8th not July 8th, so why are you sending the rain and cold so early?

Not-so-much love,


PS. I guess it does give me the chance to take some Winter shots maybe i will forgive you...just this once...

Alex | Monday Morning | 11am

Out of the ordinary.

Friday night | 7.26pm

Just up the road.

Everything was going perfectly fine until out of no-where Sophie screamed, and a cat was literally just behind me, ready to pounce like it was going to kill me. To say we got a fright, is an understatement. Gah. Way to cut our shoot short.

Hidden treasures {Part Three..}

So in school, i get frees.

Usually, when I'm not motivated, i take it as an opportunity to take advantage of the school's photoshop.

And that's exactly what i did this afternoon with the SuperPrincess shots of Emily.

Re-vamped, re-edited, re-beautified.

Ah lovely.

Let me know what edits you like the best :) Also, anyone who reads this blog can comment, so even if you don't have a blogger account, please leave me some love.

It would be much appreciated :)

Have a beauty full weekend.

Fly, fly, fly away.

Sometimes i wish i had wings.

My head hurts,

I have ha-ugee bags under my eyes,

Assignments that aren't done..yet,

Lines to be learnt,

Equations to be solved,

Essays to write,

A body to rest.

Sometimes I wish i had wings.

Let me show you..the most beautiful thing.

Walking is good.

Walking is so good.

It clears your mind, your head, maybe even your soul.

In the early sunset every night, i walk the same path. And each night i forget my camera {usually because I'm pulling my dog back to my side} but tonight i didn't.

Let me show you {what i think} is some of the most beautiful things...

{This post is for Lucy, my dear friend, who started a blog tonight. Head on over there and check it out :) }
