    As Dishwater

    As in dull.

    Actually, i've got tonnes and tonnes to blog about - lots & lots. But I always seem to miss the boat. I make pacts with myself, and deny myself any of my own photos or fun or storytelling until i've done the work for others.

    Fact is, i've been so busy, I don't get around to me. And so much time on the computer, when I take a break, it's to play with my boys, not blog about playing with them ( or our new guinea pigs - squee! - hopefully will pic & blog about them soon! ). I also think "what if someone i'm working for jumps on the blog and sees me farnarkling about while they're waiting for their pics?" .. so no, work & kids first, me & my indulgences last.

    Of course, there's always time for a quick tweet between photo uploads, so I still feel 'in the loop'

    Got a lot of work on ATM - lots of bellies booked in for upcoming months - including a Yoga Champion who wants to incorporate some poses into her photos - can't wait for that, sounds incredible!

    Recently, I photographed baby J and his family:

    I really like some of the family shots I took, but I didn't ask if I could pop them on the blog, so better not ;)

    J's mum got to view her pics on my new website - which isn't even live yet, but I got the gallery going, and it even has a shopping cart: it's a pretty awesome setup, can't wait to share it when I get some time to work on it! I had to send her a link to some obcure ref like "456.345.678/proofing", but it's much better than what I was doing previously, on private flickr galleries or whatnot. Messy. Awkward. ( and a Big thanks to SunnyRoadMum for generously helping me make my decision with her behind the scenes help )

    My kinder sessions were also quite popular at the Trivia Night bidding, so I was very happy with that result.
    The kinder raised $6k, and apparently they only normally raise about $3k.

    If you've found me here from the night and you missed out on a booking, drop me an email.
    If you weren't at the trivia night and would also like me to take some pics, hey - you too can drop me a line too - I don't discriminate !

    And now i'm off to play with the guinea pigs...
