You know that fundraiser I had earlier in the year? Well…..
No, I didn’t forget to make the donation, but I forgot to write a post! My marketing-expert friend Andrea will be horrified that I didn’t do a big song and dance about it! So….
[INSERT FANFARE HERE]
A donation of $210.00 was made to support neonatal intensive care. Thanks very much to everyone who participated.
Would you just take a look at this family? Aren’t they beautiful? I know what you’re thinking, “She says that about all the families she photographs!” I guess perhaps I do. But honestly, go on. Have a look at these people. How could you possibly take a bad photo?
I haven’t done that many newborn shoots, and this is the first time I’ve actually had a sleeping baby. Properly asleep, I mean. Not just a little catnap that is disturbed at the first sound or touch. No, this little one slept pretty well for us. And the best thing about that? No, not the images you can get, but the fact that I got to hold her while she fell asleep! How nice is it to have a newborn in your arms?
This session was quite some time ago now, but I’ve been holding off on blogging these images until the birth announcements and thank you cards were all posted. (I didn’t want to spoil those by having already posted these images.) Here are just a few images from our session. I hope you like them! So, without further ado, let me introduce you to Miss A and her gorgeous family:
I just wanted to let everyone know that I am now fully booked for the remainder of this year, but I have opened up my books for next year and am now scheduling portrait sessions for late January 2011. If you’d like to talk with me about booking a session, you can reach me via the ‘contact’ page on this blog, or even better, through my website. That way you can have a bit of a browse through my galleries while you’re there!
This is a busy time of year for us all, and especially busy for us photographers, with everyone wanting everything before Christmas, so I would like to thank all my clients for their patience. You WILL get your photos as soon as humanly possible!
Here’s my entry for this week’s I ♥ faces photo challenge. It’s from a newborn shoot I did quite some time ago. In fact you may have already seen this image in a sneak peek I posted just after the shoot. It’s a looking a little different here as I’ve made it into a little postcard. (Hope that’s OK with you I ♥ faces people!). Leave me a comment to let me know what you think. Oh, and you can click on the image if you want to see it bigger.
And be sure and visit the I ♥ faces site to check out all the other entries!
Well, finally the wait is over! Thank you to all of you who entered the competition to celebrate the launch of my website, and thank you also to those of you who contacted me to comment on the site, but did not enter the competition.
Now, so that it’s all above-board and legit, here’s what I did:
I kept a list of all entrants, in order of time and date of entry. I then assigned each entry a number. Here’s the list:
- Eve of Mitchell’s Island
- Maureen of Turramurra
- Terese of Turramurra
- Emma of Turramurra
- Susan of Pymble
- Sandra of Pymble
- Barbara of Lindfield
- Helen of Toronto (NSW, not Canada!)
- Andrea of Turramurra
I then used the list randomiser at RANDOM.ORG to re-order the list randomly. The first three on the randomized list are the winners.
And the winners are…… [imagine drum roll here!]…… 6 Sandra, 5 Susan and 3 Terese! Congratulations to all of you!
OK. I promise this will be the LAST reminder about my competition. I promise! It’s just that I don’t want anyone to miss out on a chance to win some great prizes!

Check out these cute little tootsies. They belong to my daughter, when she was very very new….. and I use them for an advertising image for karma kids, which is my other business: yoga teaching.
Oh, that reminds me, I’m about to start teaching again. Must post about that next!
