Baby Harley arrives

Goodness I go from one week without posting anything to mass uploads the next.  How could I not share posting these uber cute pictures of baby Harley who was about 7 days old when these shots were taken.  He had the most perfect skin, gorgeous spiky hair and had the best baby smell I have ever smelt.

Congratualtions to Mike, Natalie and big brother Mikey.



Much Cuuuuteness!

Well after posting on my Facebook page and blog for a newborn baby girl I had the pleasure of stealing this gorgeous little thing.  Little Sophie was super cute and so good – well apart from peeing all over me but I suppose that comes with the job ;-).

There were a couple of props I wanted to try out, one being a saddle which didn’t quite work out as I had hoped but I will persevere till I get it the way I want.  I also loved using this gorgeous dogs bed made by a very talented friend of mine Sirah Parks.  Thought I would share a couple of pics with you, so here are some of my faves:

WANTED – 1-10 day old baby girl with hair!!

Yes I know it’s a little random title for a blog post but I wanted to be pretty specific about what I want lol.

As much as I love what I do sometimes time doesn’t allow me to photograph what I want to and the best way to go about that is to advertise  a free sitting.

I’m looking to photograph a baby girl within 10 days old with a mass of dark hair wearing a range of props that I have.  If you are keen to have your baby girl photographed in exchange for some free images please free to contact me and I will explain in more detail.

Knitting = Photography Props

Ok, so anyone that knows me knows I will try anything to make my pictures look better.  I’ve tried hairbows – which I can make okaish, Tutu’s are down to a tee and knitting, which has taken more than one attempt *sigh*!!!!   I’ve downloaded many patterns, attempted many a hat and given up, but thanks to my mother-in-law for explaining quite a simple pattern I have finally finished my first EVER decent project at the ripe old age of 35!  Actually that is a wee lie because I think I made willie warmers in my teenage years (blue if I remember correctly).  I’m soooooo excited I could crush a grape  lol.

This has taken me at least 4 attempts.  The second time the wool was in a knot and my lovely mother-in-law sorted it for me and helped me on my way.  Then I messed it up and finished the tail wrong so had to start again.  I think this happened a couple more times and I thought “one more go and that’s it” I was gonna give up if it didn’t work.  However, I have to admit that I DID NOT GIVE UP!  It’s not perfect and I can only get better the more I try and my intention would be to sell them in colours of your choice but I’ll let you know when I’m up to scratch and get the seal of approval from the Mother-in-law (who has a name I’ll have you know) Hazel as it is!!!!!! My mum is also a brill knitter so I’m convincing her to knit some too!

My model is the lovely Annabel who posed ever so well 🙂
