     On the twelfth day of Christmas Carly showed to me twelve teddy bears, eleven precious poses, ten angelic angels, nine swinging carriages, eight smiling faces, seven peach peonies, six feet of air, five months of waiting, four tiers of utopia, three timeless kisses, two twins cuddling and a ready made family.

    It’s after midnight, 12:49 as a matter of fact. Its Christmas day. My twelfth day of Christmas should have been posted on Christmas eve but I was so busy buying food for Christmas festivities, wrapping last minute gifts, editing photos for people to share with loved ones on Christmas day, inviting friends into my home just because, running a Christmas Eve musical and singing in Christmas with jazz carols at my church that I just didn’t have time to post this blog on Christmas Eve but for that I am actually glad. Because the true gift is shared Christmas day.

    Oliver  with his rosy cheeks and gorgeous smile was an absolute joy to photograph. It was sheer luck that a gorgeous baby with a big red bow on his bum (you will see the pic in a minute) was also the little boy who sat on a bridge with twelve teddy bears. I didn’t know that he would be my twelfth day nor that there was even twleve teddy bears sitting beside him. It wasn’t planned at all, it just happened to be the number we placed there but I thing its a poetic coincidence that it is a special little boy that I share with you Christmas day.

    For me it was a little boy that is my true Christmas gift. It was a gift not just given to me but to all. This perfect little boy was born, he was given the name Jesus, and it is because of the love he shared with us all we celebrate Christmas day. It is my reason for all I do and I am so thankful for all I have, for the many blessings in my life, for my friends and family. I am thankful for the gift of my life and for the best gift ever given to me by a little boy so many years ago.

    So enjoy this little boy Oliver as my Christmas gift to you and may your stockings be filled with Christmas love this Christmas morn.

    Merry Christmas,

    Carly

    On the eleventh day  of Christmas Carly showed to me eleven precious poses, ten angelic angels, nine swinging carriages, eight smiling faces, seven peach peonies, six feet of air, five months of waiting, four tiers of utopia, three timeless kisses, two twins cuddling and a ready made family.

    I adore babies but especially twins so I have been in photographic heaven lately especially since I had the pleasure of shooting two perfect little girls Amelia and Saskia. Much love, prayer and nurture were given to these two before they were born and that is only going to increase as these two grow up to be all God created them to be.

    This shoot was done on their birth date so I go to share a special day with the girls who came into this world early. These perfect little girls put on a show and Jullian their older brother as well as mum and dad joined in on the fun as well to get what are some of my favourite shots of the year, decade… EVER!!!!

    I hope you enjoy these little gems!

    On the tenth day of Christmas Carly showed to me ten angelic angels, nine swinging carriages, eight smiling faces, seven peach peonies, six feet of air, five months of waiting, four tiers of utopia, three timeless kisses, two twins cuddling and a ready made family.

    Last year at Christmas I created a Christmas video with the help of ten little people. It was truly a joyous experience filming, creating and capturing something that shares the true meaning of Christmas. The final video was used at our Christmas Services and touched many hearts. The film and song are to special not to share so I wanted to post it on here as to me this is what Christmas is all about.

     

    I am busily editing more for this years musical so if you are free over Christmas and want to experience some Christmas joy come and join us at The Journey Uniting Church {click for details}.

    On the ninth day of Christmas Carly Showed to me nine carriages swaying, eight smiling faces, seven peach peonies, six feet of air, five months of waiting, four tiers of utopia, three timeless kisses, two twins cuddling and a ready made family.

    Kym and Neill’s wedding was a beach side  treat. The weather was gorgeous (minus a bit of wind that almost sent us flying during the bridal party shoot). All the details were truly stunning and the pink ombre cake was divine! The photos were an absolute blast with lots of laughter and so many great shots. Jai and Kane truly won me over with their gorgeous little outfits and cheeky grins!

    As a kiss was share, rings were given we continued on the night by dancing while the sun set and even took a ride on the ferris wheel. Ever since I took these shots I have had this quote in my mind.

    “Love doesn’t make the world go round, but it makes the ride worthwhile” – Franklin P Jones.

    May your ride always bring laughter, love and joy!

    Enjoy, Carly

    On the eighth day of Christmas Carly showed to me eight smiling faces, seven peach peonies, six feet of air, five months of waiting, four tiers of utopia, three timeless kisses, two twins cuddling and a ready made family.

    I adore kids, everyone who knows me knows this. I find it soothing and relaxing to go on an adventure with a four year old while feeding ducks and patting horses, to to play dress ups and see the make believe story unfold in a child’s mind. That’s why I love kids photography so much and while I usually don’t post to  much of it on here as I like to keep little faces and their smiles just for families at this time of year I cant help but to show you some of the smiling faces I have had the pleasure of playing with and capturing this year.

    Some of the pics are fun and quirky others are plain cute, but that’s the great thing about child photo shoots, they are always and adventure and you never know what your going to get….

    Parents think back to all those delightful moments when your kids shoots have been a little stressful and they have got peanut butter all over their perfect outfit or ran around so much you got a workout…

    When they peed during a nude shot…

    When you reward your kids with lolly pops for good behavior and when you get that shot that you know you will hang on the wall, the one where there are big smiles and your child truly shines! This is what child photographers live for…. Otherwise they wouldn’t do it.

    So this Christmas season enjoy your kids, squeeze them with cuddles and be sure to have the camera ready cos you never know where the perfect shot will be (it could be when your kids are jumping on the bed while your trying to change the sheets). Carly
