Win a Complete Portraiture Experience!!! {Brisbane Children’s Photographer}

We all know that life in general is a case of “blink and you miss it“. Particularly so, when it involves your own children! Time passes us by so very quickly and before we know it, they are no longer babies. No longer toddlers. About to start school…and so on and so forth. Then there are times we look through our photos and realise we as the adults in the family are hardly represented in any of the photos we happened to capture along the way (what memories are we leaving for our children?).

Which brings me to the reason I adore my photography…simple memories.  I have this innate ability to freeze time. I am fortunate to be able to capture my own children, in all their glory, just as they are, as often as I like. I am truly blessed to be able to do this. Whether I use my ‘big’ camera or my small point and shoot, I do my very best to try to capture something every once in while. But what about me, and my photos? Again, I’m so very fortunate to have such wonderful friends (who also happen to be photographers) that I can call on to capture some memories of me and my family. As it happens I’m off on a family holiday and will be getting my own family portraits in November – what to wear? what to wear? (I’m sure I’ll love being on the other side of the camera….eek!).

Anyway, I digress, I’ve been thinking about the fortunate position I find myself in and about those that are not.  I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to ‘pay it forward’. I wanted to create some lifelong memories for someone special and in doing so decided that I didn’t just want people to win a ‘few free prints’. I wanted to properly give someone the chance to capture their newborn, baby or child/ren and create some life long memories.

So, I’d like to announce that I am running an amazing competition – the chance to Win a Complete Portraiture Experience!

Jett James {Brisbane Newborn Photographer}

Awwhhh I just can’t get enough of them. Newborns are the sweetest little souls. So new. So fresh. So sweet.

Little Jett here, 14 days new, was a complete delight; as good as they come. He’s a perfect little man with lips to die for…

Day 14 {Brisbane Children’s Photographer}

I’d hope to think that I’m not alone in the predicament I find myself in on a daily basis. It’s not life critical by any stretch of the imagination (although my husband would probably beg to differ) but some days, as evident by the screams and cries, you would think that might be the case. If you haven’t guessed already, it’s the dreaded TV and the battles that ensue constantly between my two over what they can watch. Byron wants to watch sport, or National Geographic, or ‘Junk Yard Wars’ or some other show not geared towards 6 years olds. Lily on the other hand wants to watch Dora, Playhouse Disney Channel or something remotely directed at a 3 year olds’ intelligence (and I don’t blame her). She likes kid TV and Byron doesn’t. If I never have to hear the words, “Byron! Turn it off the sport and put on a kids’ channel!” again, I’d be a happy woman.

We have however for the most part found a happy medium in Scooby Doo (Thank God!).

…and thank God for 7:01pm – BED TIME!
