I have just dropped my camera in for cleaning and servicing. I have been without it for four days now. Can you hear me hyperventilating? And to make matters worse, I’ve just realised I won’t have it back in time for my baby girl’s first day at school!
Where’s that brown paper bag?
I’ll have to make do with our point and press. Aaagh!
Anyway, to keep myself sane, I have been looking through some old photos, selecting some to share with you. Here’s one of my girl when she was a baby. Once again it’s so old I was still shooting film, so you’ll have to put up with a poor qaulity scan. Sorry.
No I’m not. It’s a gorgeous shot, and she’s a gorgeous baby, don’t you think?
My mum taught me to knit when I was about 6 years old. I can remember the first thing I knitted was a higgledy-piggledy scarf. I kept getting the yarn twisted around the needles, making extra stitches all the time! I can also remember taking my knitting to school for show and tell. I sat in front of the class and demonstrated, and my classmates looked all over the floor for the stitch I dropped!
I’ve come a long way with my knitting since then. Here’s a recent Sunday afternoon project for my girl.
I love knitting, and would be more than happy to knit this hat for you, if you like. I have some more of this yarn in my stash or I could customise it for you. Any size from newborn to adult. Leave me a comment and we’ll take it from there.

Here are some shots I did for a friend quite a few years ago. They are so old I was still shooting film. I know they’re not great scans, but I like that I have captured a special time in this family’s life. They seem to like them too. Last time I visited I noticed several of the photos from our session that day have been framed and are up on the wall. What a thrill!
Hope you like them. Let me know what you think.
I’m sometimes asked to include a favourite toy or a family heirloom when I photograph children. These boots are one such item. These boots were handmade for the girl’s father, and are being passed down the family line now. Aren’t they gorgeous? I couldn’t resist having a go at knocking the image about a bit. This is my first attempt at aging a photo. It’s a bit crude, I know, but I’d love to know what you think of it.
Here’s the original shot.

And here’s the one that’s had just a teeny bit of photoshop work…
