Baby Hayley

This is the very cute Hayley. She was about a week old when I took her photos.

I tell you what she made me work hard to get the photos of her but it was so worth it. The poor little thing just didn’t like me touching her, every  time I did anything to her she stirred and then cried. I like to think that I’m usually pretty darn good with babies, they fall asleep great for me, I absolutely adore shooting them, and I just love being around them, but this day she just didn’t want a bar of me. I felt like such a meanie. Anyway we ended up with some great photos so I am definately not complaining.

Thanks so much to her lovely Mum for being so patient. Hope you guys like the photo. What do you think the portrait or landscape photo?

Baby Kalani

Sorry to everyone who usually follows my blog on a regular basis, I had been unwell for a week and then my daughter was really crook so I have not had a chance to get onto the computer let alone post anything. Finally all is going great again and I have some new things to post on the blog, Yeah I’m starting to catch up again.

My cousin Tracey and her hubby Shane had the most gorgeous baby girl named Kalani and I am so lucky that I was able to do some newborn photos of her.

I haven’t seen Tracey in so long it’s ridiculous, you loose touch with family so easily as you get older and you all have your own family to take care of. We were talking and how bad is it that her hubby met all of us for the first time at a funeral. I decided that getting together for a new baby is way better and thought bugger this we’re having a cousins get together, why not? It’s a good way for all of us to keep in touch and get to know each other again.

Anyway here is one of the shots I got of the gorgeous Kalani, she was the best baby to shoot. She didn’t really stir at all and I was finally able to get a baby in this pose. I am so excited, this pose is quite difficult to get as babies don’t always want to be put into some poses and recently ever bub that I tried just didn’t want a bar of it so we did other things instead. You ALWAYS have to listen to what the baby does and doesn’t like, and I can tell you they will certainly let you know if they don’t like it.

Anyways what do you think? I think this shot looks great and Kalani is just adorable?

Last Photos of Barbara

Here are the last couple of my favourite photos of Barbara.

I just found out that she went in to labour the day after we did our session, phew. But unlucky as she was 5 weeks early. Luckily mum and bub are doing fine.

I’m a bit disappointed as there is a bit of a problem with the baby, nothing major thank goodness, but unfortunately it means having to put off her newborn session until she is older.

Never mind I will have to contain my excitement at meeting her until later on. I get so excited about the thought of meeting the new babies and doing the session with them, I just can’t help myself.

Hope you like these latest photos.

More Barbara

I was having a bit of a play with some of Barbara’s photos and came across this soft sepia look.

Different effects don’t always look good on everything but I felt that it looked really nice on these particular shots from the session. what do you guys think?

What is photogenic?

I just love this photo of my daughter. It is now my most favourite shot of her. She is such a great model for me, she’s just so natural and relaxed. I don’t think I really have many bad photos of her at all. It sux because I am so not photogenic and my husband and daughter are, lucky things.

You know some people are just good in front of a camera, I’m not sure if it’s confidence or what it is that makes a person photogenic. Photogenic doesn’t even mean that you are drop dead gorgeous, it’s just something that you have, for some reason that means that you look good in photos.

What do you think it is that makes a person photogenic?

Some more photos of Ruby

Here are a few more photos of Ruby. Just about all done, yeh. Can’t wait for Mum and Dad to see them.

Ruby

This is the very cute Ruby. She was only a week old when I took these photos of her and she was such a great baby. She slept beautiful and let me do whatever I wanted once she’d had a feed and had a nice full tummy.

I can’t decide between the original shot or the desaturated. I think the desaturated looks kinda cool because of the wooden box and the old feel it gives it but I like the saturated one as well with all the colour to it.

What do you think? To saturate or not to saturate?

Roxy and my allergies

I don’t usually post this sort of thing but today I felt like doing something a bit different for me.

Recently I have had to rehouse our beloved cat Roxy and my daughter’s pet rat Penny due to severe allergies. It is ridiculous to think that I have suffered from allergies all of my life but have only recently had allergy testing done and found out that I am allergic to cat’s, dog’s, feather mix (goose, duck & chicken), mould and the rat, plus what I had always know which was grass and pollen.

How strange that as a child I was constantly at the doctors about this and was one of the first children to be put on numerous different medications that had only just come out, as a bit of a guinea pig but no one ever suggested allergy testing.

I have to say I was extremely upset when I found out that I had these other allergies and hadn’t know for all this time. It was really hard knowing that the major cause of my allergies, which was my cat could have been avoided for such a long time and would have saved me a lot of tears, pain, frustration and just generally feeling like crap constantly. I decided to stop feeling sorry for myself and just be grateful that at least had found out.

We ended up deciding that we would have to find Roxy a new home after doing a few tests to check that it was in fact her causing me the worst problems. It was terrible to have to say goodbye to her, I thought I was fine and couldn’t figure out why I was crying or felt like crying all the time for days, and then I realised why.

I am really pleased to be able to say that even though it was horrible and I felt like the worst mother in the world (there’s nothing more heartbreaking than your kids crying their eyes out because of a problem that you have) we were able to find great new homes for Penny the Rat and Roxy our cat. Thank goodness that it has made a HUGE difference already to how I feel, it’s unbelievable really.

I was updating my family photos and came across this shot of  Roxy and so I thought I’d edit it and do a post on my blog and write about what happened to me.
