Off and running

We had our first day of Tafe today, I'm doing the Photoimaging Diploma this year, and we were put straight into it. We had a portrait sitting of a 4 month old baby and her mama. We also had Tara and Thomas come in and had some impromptu baby swapping. With feeding and settling and set up changes, we really hit the floor running. Janine and I had done some shopping for props and lovely soft blankets and all sorts of things for baby photography over the break and between us we had some great props. But as we didn't know what we were doing today we didn't have them with us, needless to say we were sent home to get all our little goodies. It was a really productive day and I'm hoping to take Piper and Thomas in for a repeat next Tuesday. I don't have any shots to share right now but am planning on setting up a new blog for my photography, this one is really just for memories of my family and sharing some scrapping layouts. Speaking of which here is a few more......

OK so you would probably notice a theme to my latest layout shares......All Piper's yep sadly that's about all I got done last year. With study and being pregnant it was a push to get these done. But I do want to keep on top of layouts for Piper as she will be the only baby that I have had since I started scrapping. And there are so many things scrap worthy with a new life. In saying that here is today's share.

The title says it all!!! the other kids love her so much and are so very helpful. Even if it is just watching a DVD with her :-)

Love this one!!! it's the first time I got her smile in a photo ( almost said on film, how odd that these old phases come so easily to mind. Nothing sounds quite as right with all the new digital technology)

This is a copy of the layout on the packaging the Heidi Swapp clock came in. Loved the photo so just kept the layout simple which Heidi does so well.

Now this one brings back so many memories. I have photos of all our kids in this exact position on Dad's shoulder. Love it.

Well that's it for today, I hope to share the rest that I have done before we all head back into the busy school year. The kids go back Monday and I go the following week. I will miss my little girl but will so enjoy getting back into photography. I'm hoping for big things this year with the new Diploma.

Just a few more

The photo on this layout printed up so dark, much darker than it should have but I still used it.

Had to scrap day 5 as she finally had a name.

Had a little photo shoot of Piper and got so many good one's I had to use lots of them, so this layout is a scraplift of a layout Ann Leaderhose did for us the year before last.

And finally a layout with Piper and her Mum..........Me. lol. I hate my photo taken but am begining to realise I'm the person missing out of all my kids albums. So I had to be in on some of her's from the very start.

A few more

This final one was a class by Kim Archer.

A few layout shares

As it has been a while since I posted I have decided to share a few layouts from Piper's album, which is practically the only thing I have scrapped all last year.

Impromtu shoot

I waited to long to do these shots of Piper, she is too big for her Hat Box Now :-( I have had this planned and ready for a while don't know why I waited so long, just all the busyness of Christmas I suppose. Had to get my book out again for my new camera today, how can it be so hard to remember to change simple things like ISO, aperture ect?!?!?! It was second nature with the 400D but it all so different on the 50D, more complicated I think. Anyway here is a sample of what I did, gotta remember to keep private parts out of view :-) forgot on most of today's. lol.

Not sure if I prefer the colour or B&W version?!!?

I'm thinking the B&W, would love to have any visitors leave a comment and tell me their preference. :-)

Summer has begun

After much earned rest over the Christmas period we have started our summer break with a trip out camping. The weather is fantastic, the water cool and clear and although Piper and I are returning home for the nights, we are all having a blast away from it all. We have the most beautiful spot we like to go to, it has been a while since we were last here, but it's still just as great.
