Christmas Gift Guide for Children

When Poppy was born I decided I didn’t want to end up with a house full of toys and stuff after birthdays and Christmas that would eventually end up in landfill. I loved the concept of giving One You Want, One You Need, One You Wear, One you Read. At the time, if anyone asked […]

I remember googling for Melbourne photographers and spending lots of time going through portfolios and looking at all the different styles. There are definitely two main types of photography to choose from. There’s the natural, candid style and then there’s the styled, posed shots […]

Poppy recently turned 3. I wanted her to have a birthday party this year because it’s the first time she has had her own real little friends.

Let’s Get (More) Personal

I love celebrating milestones, events and anniversaries. Since having kids I’ve definitely gone next level for them, celebrating and documenting every single special occasion. For Poppy’s birthday recently, I ensured we had a special birthday card for her. In fact, because I couldn’t choose between a couple of cute princess ones, she received one ‘from […]
