My magnificent month of May making MEMORIES.

May has been madness. If you haven't guessed it before, I'm a sucker for alliteration :) haha

I have been really enjoying using my new studio space and have found it makes such a difference to my sessions being able to move from 1 set-up to another seamlessly. It means less disruption to the baby, greater variety of photos for Mum & Dad and faster session times for me. Check out some of these little ones who have visited me this month.
I also had the honour of photographing a Debutante session for the lovely Kate. I photographed Kate's sister's Deb 2 years ago and was so pleased her Mother asked me back to capture Kate's day. I had told myself I wasn't going to do Deb sessions anymore and to just focus of my baby and family niche, but I enjoyed it so much I don't think I can help myself. Deb sessions will remain available :)
May also marked the final month of pregnancy for one of my lovely clients. Jess & I have been meeting up once a month since the beginning of her pregnancy to create a beautiful timeline of her baby's growth from month to month. As I am writing this post a month later, I have already met and photographed her little man who will be in next months June post.
May also marked the official opening of my new studio, which I'll post about separately. And I also found time amongst all these sessions to take a weekend trip to Mildura and while we were there we had some family photos taken. It's very strange for me to be on the other side of the camera, but I enjoyed the whole experience and love every single photo. It's so nice to feel what my client's feel when I give them their photos. 
So without further ado, here are my March photos.

The best birthday present - April

April 2017 has been a big month for me. I turned 30 years old and couldn't be happier with life right now. I mean how did I get so lucky!  --- stop right there --- Don't get me wrong, I'm not going to be one of those people who put out the perception that my life is perfect, because it is far from that. Yes I have a successful little business, but I work damn hard for it and make sacrifices everyday to make it work. Midnight is an early night for me, my daughter is late for pre school EVERY day, I no patience for my own kid (and oodles for every one elses), my house is only cleaned when my fantastic house cleaner comes (yep first to admit it). I could keep going... I can't cook, we eat far to much take-away, I missed my chiropractor appointment over a month ago and still haven't called to re-book or apologise, my kid eats sugar everyday (damn you Mums who have your kids eating 'colours of the rainbow') and as a result is a moody little mite full of attitude. I joined the gym 3 months ago and still have only been once, I don't walk my dogs, I don't text people back (sorry friends, I just forget) and to make up for not seeing my friends I hound them for hours on the phone so I get some adult conversation. My life is chaos, but it's a happy chaos. Perfectly imperfect in every way. Yes, there are still things I am working on and trying to change some bad habits, but at the end of the day when I look at my little family my heart just explodes with love. I am just so thankful for the love we have and everything in our lives. I really am so lucky.
So heres to 30 years, bring on the wrinkles, my mum-tum can stay for a little longer while I spend my free time with the ones that matter and appreciating all that I have.
Oh, and heres some pretty photos that I took during April. You know your in a happy place with your work when you look back through and can't narrow down favourites, so I'm sharing a little bit more this month, because why not :)
