An Australian Christmas { Macedon Ranges Photographer}

A little bush fairy on the Christmas tree! Tho’ not like the fairies you usually see, For she wears not a gauzy gossamer gown but gumnut blossoms drifting down. And there on top of her pine tree tower she waves a wand of flannel flower. Flittering and fluttering her eucalyptus wings ‘Neath a halo of […]

My goodness these are gorgeous!

cass - November 2, 2012 - 10:11 am

Ok, hold your horses right here. People LIVE in that gorgeous house? It’s exquisite! Please tell me you had to pile huge loads of books and old pyjamas and tea cups and magazines out of the way to take some of those internals because otherwise I’ll cry at my own domestic inadequacies.

And then for two – the family! Such joy! Oh I love love this session so much, they must be thrilled, the children are adorable, the light is amazing and the props perfect. What a wonderful session all round.

Eloise - November 3, 2012 - 12:20 am

Let’s stick together {Macedon Ranges Family Photographer}

So wherever I am, there’s always Pooh, There’s always Pooh and Me. “What would I do?” I said to Pooh, “If it wasn’t for you,” and Pooh said… “True, It isn’t much fun for One, but Two Can stick together,” says Pooh, says he. “That’s how it is,” says Pooh.  – A.A Milne For two […]
