Busy. Blog Stalkers. And Bekky

(Reposted from one of my other blogs - with a couple of edits)

Happy New Financial Year (already I'm a day late!). My goal for the next 6 months is to not be as busy as the last 6 months so I have more time to do things I like doing. Like taking photos for fun and sharing them on the blog.

In other news, I've discovered in recent weeks that I have blog stalkers. On two separate occasions I've had contact with people I knew from years ago and had lost contact with, and both of them confessed to blog stalking me so they pretty much knew what I'd been up to (Hi, *waves*). Well, except for the last 6 months, as I've been too bloody busy to blog anything! So, if there's anyone still around who checks in occasionally, don't be a stranger, say Hi! Leave a comment or send me a message. It's nice to know there's someone out there who checks in every now and then.

Another goal looming is to tidy up my web presence. With 3 blogs, 2 websites, a couple of facebook pages, a name change and commuting between two states, the plan is to consolidate all the loose ends to have one cohesive approach. And hopefully I'll be able to update things a bit more often. I'll also be working with my clever baby girl a bit more as she sets forth in the career direction of her dreams.

So if you're a regular stalker, check out this link to see what Bekky's dream is. I'm so very proud of her. It's a pozible campain so if you're feeling philanthropic you might like to help her out. BUt even if you're feeling stingy, go and check out the video and have a giggle.


And if you want to see some more of her illustrations and some funny tram stories, have a look at this blog. Saint Damascus Blog

And don't forget to say hi.
(And I'll try and share some more photos soon!)

PS. If you want headshots (in Melbourne), check Bekky out (Bekky's facebook page). She took this one of me.

More than just a photo

Anyone can take a photo that shows what you look like. I like photos that show who you really are. 
And I love it when my clients really 'get' my style. 

Whether it be embracing the weather (see what i did there? lol).
  Or embracing each other. 
Mum said the photo above (from a mini-session) exactly shows the craziness of their life at this point in time. It's always exciting when a client loves the same shots you do and she chose this one as the centrepiece of a collage. Mini-sessions are taken in the Park near the Wild Honey Studio in Aroona, near Caloundra, on the Sunshine Coast. 

Or we can head to Moffat Beach for some family lifestyle portraits (below) and have some fun on the beach. 

And once again, from a photographer's point of view, it's pure bliss when a client loves some of the more abstract shots (like the one below) as much as you do.
