Stew's Beanie! (Modeled by baby Jayden)

Jayden was the perfect model to show my brother Stewart's knitting talent. This is his first baby beanie!
Doesn't it look gorgeous!

It's the simple things ...

not to mention the free things, that help you stop and appreciate the moment.

Gratitude: walking through the park at the end of my street with my dog of a morning. Admiring the myriad Grevilleas and Callistemons bursting with blooms, and the rainbow lorikeets noisily feasting on their colourful smorgasbord.

(Straight from iPhone to you. No editing, cropping, processing, adjusting, tweaking or fiddling. How very liberating it is to shoot and show. Although I may have to break out the good gear to get a shot of the rainbow lorikeets.)

Sarah's babies

So, no sooner did I get back from New Zealand and Sarah jets off to the UK for 6 1/2 weeks. She has an action packed itinerary, meeting her triplet nephews for the first time (can't wait to see those photos!) and bridesmaid at a lifelong friends wedding, and the general catching up of family and friends.
In the meantime, here's a few of the babies she photographed while I was away.
You can see why I was able to relax and rejuvenate while I was away, knowing the business was in very capable hands.

Finally, she's gotten around to showing some of her work. Check it out. And if you're looking for a photographer in Melbourne, she's your gal. Bekky's Blog

Beautiful bunnies

Until I get around to resizing the zillion other photos I want to post, here's one from Sarah that is sooooo cute.

Sarah - All in a days work

Back to blogging. Finally!And so much to catch up on. Here's Sarah (Wild Honey's new photographer!) tackling the vagaries of every day photography work. First up, no she's not pregnant! We were doing a couple of test shots for a later maternity shoot and she thought it best to get into the swing of things as the stand in.
Then tackling the great outdoors. She braved the threat of deadly spiders and snakes in the bush (remember she's a Pommie!) to get the best shot.
She did well until I pointed out the spider she was just about to walk into.

Later that same afternoon for a portrait shoot, she didn't let the spiders stop her getting the best angle for the shot. And she survived to finish the shoot. I'll follow up with some favourites from the days shooting soon.


Checking out a new template for the blog and also trying to get the photos BIGGER. But with no success. :(
Sarah took this photo of me at a recent opening at Noosa Art Gallery. She must be doing a good job if I'm actually prepared to post it!

By golly, I think I've done it. Big picture?
