25/52. Rockstar.  Yes you are! You strum that ukulele like it’s your very own electric guitar. Best Christmas gift ever Grandma. The hair suits it well. We’ll have to get a few playing tips, but in the mean time keep rocking it baby!IMG_3542.R2

52 Portraits Project – 24/52

Still in the middle of school holidays and all that means for my tasks!  Welcome to week twenty-four of my 52 Portraits Project.  If you have missed the earlier weeks start at week 1 here, which includes more information about the project.

24/52. Competition.  At the moment it seems like everything is a competition for you two. Who is better, who gets more, who do we love more, who will win. I love your competitive spirit, your go hard or go home attitude. I do hope that one day you will realise that working together rather than against each other will be more satisfying. Not just as sisters, but also in life.24.competition

52 Portraits Project – 23/52

I am playing catch-up.  The festive season and the school holidays have played havoc with my posting schedule!  But, finally, welcome to week twenty-three of my 52 Portraits Project.  If you have missed the earlier weeks start at week 1 here, which includes more information about the project.

23/52. Camping. Our first ever family camping trip. It was a massive success. Miraculously we fit everything in the car, including the new tent, stove and camp table & stools. There were 9 adults, 10 kids and a fair few ducks. You and the kids held a vigil for the dying duckling but alas the kookaburra got it in the end. Perhaps its kids were hungry, you said. You floated upstream on your boogie board and ran around like a crazy thing, and then 10 of you practiced your yoga moves on fence posts – very impressive. You said the best thing about camping was that you felt free. I see many more camp trips in our future.23.Camping

A Backyard Family Christmas Session

My last shoot of 2012, just a few days after Christmas.

I am so privileged to be able to record special moments for families.  To capture their life, their loves and their relationships.  And when I am asked to include the grandparents who are visiting from overseas the shoot becomes all the more meaningful.  This couple have been together for 35 years and are obviously still in love.  I know their grandkids will cherish these images in years to come, as will the whole family, present and future.  The best kind of Christmas gift.

These images were captured in the family’s beautiful backyard with a bench seat, tropical plants, a pool and afternoon shade.  It was a gorgeous, private location and the family were so at ease in the setting, despite the occassional blast of wind!  [Click on the image for a bigger, clear look].Collage
