A SWEET BABY BOY

He might not have graced us with his presence yet, but it won't be long before he enters the world...

On Saturday Tara celebrated her baby shower with her closest friends and family on a scorching hot summer afternoon in Australia. The sun was blazing and the fly's were friendly, but with the help of ice cold drinks, yummy food and big fans, the ladies celebrated well into the afternoon.

Tara, of Taylormade Weddings & Events, styled the afternoon herself at the Grazier's Table's new venue located on Gilgandra Road in Dubbo. The secluded garden was the perfect backdrop for Tara's event and really brought to life her vision.

Of course the day couldn't have been a success without the help of some of her favourite vendors from Dubbo.

Maternity Sessions, Dubbo

I am so proud of Tamara! When Tamara messaged me a few months ago about a maternity session, I had a few ideas of my own... I've been wanting a lace maternity gown for ages now, and when I finally found one I loved I grabbed it and thought of Tamara straight away. I showed her the gown and told her my ideas and although she was super nervous, she was all for it! 

I love when people trust me enough to let me do my own things and recreate the ideas I have in my head. Being pregnant is such a beautiful part of life and I am so excited to shoot more maternity sessions in Dubbo next year. See all the gorgeous-ness below!

Best Bits of 2017

Where on earth have the last 12 months gone? Does anyone else feel like (for lack of a better term) they've blinked and it's disappeared? Having said that, 2017 has been my favourite year yet. We spent a month in America, got engaged, became home owners and I shot the most weddings of my career to date. Wedding photography is undoubtedly my biggest passion and I still can't believe that I get to do this for my job. But it's become so much more to me than just a job; photography is a way of documenting a memory to never be forgotten, it's something that can be viewed, shared, touched and kept forever...

Some of the things I've learned in 2017 are:

1. If you think you can, you probably can. 

2. Eating healthy and exercising WILL make you feel good and happy.

3. Travel, take chances and don't let fear or doubt hold you back.

4. Love with all your heart, and don't take for granted everyone and everything you have.

I've met so many amazing couples and families over the past year and I can't wait for the many more that await me in 2018. 

I just wanted to take the opportunity to say a HUGE thank you to all my clients, family, friends, and anyone else who has supported me on my journey so far. It's so rewarding to know that I have so much support around me and that more and more people want me to take their photographs.

With 2018 shaping up to be my biggest year yet, I'm taking some time to prepare and give it my all. I'm ready to go, all guns blazing! 

I saw something on social media the other day that made me stop and think about what I want for the new year. It's exactly where I need to be and what I want to focus on everyday.

"Awake ever morning and do your best to follow this daily to do list:

1. Think positively

2. Eat healthy

3. Exercise today

4. Worry less

5. Work hard

6. Laugh often

7. Sleep well

I reckon if I stick to these, it's going to be an awesome year.

Happy New Year!

Dubbo Christmas Minis - The Browns

I just couldn't help but blog this gorgeous Christmas mini session from last month, with one of my favourite families ever. I love shooting with families, especially when the kids are as much of energy and personality as these Austin and Darcy. I never tell the kids to sit still, look at the camera and smile because half the time they won't do it anyway! And it's way more fun to let them do whatever they want to do and watch them be themselves. It makes for much more realistic and raw photos. 

I still have a few sessions left before the end of the year, so if you're up for some updated family shots I'd love to hear from you! In order to receive the images back by Christmas inquiries must be in by Friday 15 December 2017.

See for yourself, the Brown Family!
