This beautiful shoot never made it to the publishers due to a technical hitch, so here it is only 2 years later!
I was recently honored to photograph newborn Remy and his lovely family.
we had planned a maternity shoot; which ended up being the day of birth!
i met this gorgeous bundle when he was two weeks! ahhhh sweetness.
he slept for the entire first 1 and a half hours! then peeped open for a few family photographs.
May you have a good and happy life on earth xx
new babies never fail to leave me in awe of the powerful mystery and strength and surrender possible in a woman’s being, and the magic that man and woman can co-create.
Well done you mama! a living miracle xx
Remember, not so long ago we where picking apples in southern Germany? On our friends hillside orchard, views out to the Uracher hills and villages dotted below. Blue blue sky, crisp air, wood smoke and birds a’twitter, Lily yodelling and general early autumnal happiness
If we managed to bag an apple with the unwieldy picker instead of it catapulting down the hill and being too bruised to eat, we where cheering!. Sitting in an apple tree with a fresh scented apple to munch and crunch. Oh joy. One of my all time favourite fruits! This unnamed apple variety was crisp and tart/sweet perfection with a beautifully blushed skin. Somewhat like a Cox’s Orange Pippin. It was early picking days but our friends where away for the month and we where leaving for Australia in two days so we picked what we could to store in their cellar. Maybe I actually forgot to put them in the cellar after all…
I loved the talk of the apples, the different trees and when they fruited and which month or weather marked the picking and end of season, which apples stored until January, which ones needed eating directly, which ones where better after a few months in the cellar, which ones where for stewing and which for brewing.
Why are the ripest apples always out of reach? Shining up at the sun….
We just visited The Apple Shed museum, brewery and restaurant just north of Huonville, but that’s another apple story!
A snapshot is popularly defined as a photograph that is “shot” spontaneously and quickly… Celebrate the moments of your life. Wikipedia
I will endeavour to post one special snapshot each week this year
One precious moment I cherished this week
Simply a snapshot, no words (if I can resist)
I used to do a Friday, this moment, but now I want to do snapshots!
My photographs are nearly always spontaneous, (I’m not always quick though!)
Join me if you care to and comment with a link to your snapshot.
PS I wish I had a really gorgeous watercolour snapshot banner to post here…
With Beloved family
A wildflower and moss wreath around my table place
Sweet gifts, something from nature something to read something to wear something to eat something to enjoy
Savoury colourful breakfast
Tasmanian cheese platter for lunch ( lots of Tongola goat milk cheeses) mmm
Berry berry delicious berries and cream with an almond meal sponge cake ( thankyou mama and Lily)
Walks in the bush
Swims in the icy southern sea
Fossicking amongst sea rocks for urchins and shells
Kisses and hugs
PS welcome to the New Year everybody!
As my writing is sporadic here, I do wonder who’s out there reading my posts (aside from my family and friends) and what your life looks like. Do blogs still get read and cherished, when they are so much longer than other social contacts?
Having this blog has been so important to me and aside from a nostalgic look book for myself and family it has been a place of creative expression, expansion, glimpses of life’s gold and sharing with a bigger world than my home life. It’s been wonderful to have something all my own amidst family life and It’s incredible to feel connected to folk near and far!
I’m dreaming up spending more time here this year, and to do more of this thing I love to do yet seem to be struggling with. Words are being clunky in me, the songs of expression hushed and I can only overcome that with writing more, and anticipate the joy that brings me.
If you are still out there reading along I’d love to hear about what you enjoy seeing here on my blog!
if I don’t know you personally I’d love to know where you are from and how your days are shaped. Tell me if you have a blog and I will come and have a visit!
Blessings upon the coming year.
May peace reign within and without
