Bec & Jared

This past weekend I had the pure joy of photographing 2 of the most beautiful people on their wedding day. Matt's Neice Bec, and her now husband, Jared. It was a beautiful day and the weather was perfect!

This was the first image I took, this is just how I found them. :)
I am still working through the images that I took, I will load some as I edit.

Crayon bags.

I LOVE these bags! I always grab Liberty's when we are heading out to dinner or I am going somewhere where I know I will need a few minutes without her chatting :) They keep her occupied for so long! Even Shawn, who is 9, wanted one...

These were the first bags I made. I gave some as gifts over Christmas and I also sold a few. I do a few variations of these, but for now these are the only ones I have. Included is the notebook and BIC Kids Crayons. $15 each.
If you are interested in a crayon bag, let me know for what age, boy or girl and I will let you know what I can come up with. :)

Pink and Black!

This one is my newest creation. The pink is so yummy, it feels so good! Just for fun it has 3 pleats, just to add to the texture. The main photo didn't show this so I took a close up. The Pink and Black tote is $20 and measures approx 35x32 cm. the handles are thick and approx 32cm long.

The beautiful blue tote is made from soft backed curtain fabric. It is so lightweight, but sturdy. I really love this fabric! this tote is approx 40x33cm with long straps approx 66cm and a vintage doily for character! This tote is only $15.

It's in the bag, baby!

In my down time from editing photos, I am making bags. Bags that I hope to give as gifts and sell at markets, or maybe even online.

These are my chocolate with blue dots bags. This fabric is so yummy! Almost like a Taffeta. It is an upholstery fabric so it is sturdy, perfect for totes.

Each bag measures approx 40 x 30 cm. I make the handles different lengths, because we all like different things :)

These bags are $15 for the plain, $18 for the vintage doily (Top pic)and $20 for the vintage doily and button bag (Bottom 2 pics)

If you are interested in purchasing one of my original, handmade bags leave me a comment or send me an email and I will get back to you!

The last of Laura and Brendans images

I think I like taking shots of flowers... :)

Today I handed over the 500 + edited images on DVD to Laura and Brendan. I also put together a photo book for them, I hope it comes back OK. I find them stressful, as the quality of the book is now out of my hands. I am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to things like that :)

Thanks Laura and Brendan, I hope you love your photos x

Some more...

I couldn't resit taking this shot. As I walked in this is how I found the girls shoes, it reminded me of how I lined up the boys dress shoes.

This was such a beautiful spot, just as you enter the property. So nice to see lush, green grass

I love the look on Lauras face.


This is my little blog of Photography and Creativity.

I am by no stretch of the imagination a "professional photographer". I am just someone who loves playing with her new Nikon D90.

Each photo is a learning experience, so is every photoshop technique.

My re-discovered creative outlet is sewing. I am enjoying the quality time with my sewing machine again. If you are interested in any of the items that I have posted, send me an email or leave a comment and I will get back to you, or you can click on my Etsy store link at the side.

Please feel free to leave a comment. I would love to read your feedback. Most importantly, Thank you to the people that trust me to record the special moments in their lives. x
