High-key with the Lastolite Hilite

High-key with the Lastolite Hilite

A week or so ago I posted about our new Lastolite Hilite Background. I mentioned that although it was originally designed for high-key portraits (with pure white backgrounds) we were unlikely to make much use of it in its conventional form. However, after some playing around in the studio this afternoon I want to eat ... Read More »

Four months new (Jan 2011)

Ok, so AJ is not quite four months old anymore – more like four and a half to be precise. Still, young enough to get what he wants when he wants it and old enough to reward you with a little giggle and quirky smile. Luv my boys! Read More »

Turning two (Jan 2011)

It’s hard sometimes, sifting through all the digital negatives from a shoot and trying to pick the small few that accurately convey the atmosphere as it was when you were shooting. Sometimes there are lots to chose from; sometimes there are hardly any. But almost always it is difficult to chose between them. Not so ... Read More »

mirabile visu (May 1st)

I’d be willing to bet that lane 5 of the Australian Institute of Sport’s indoor Olympic pool is empty at 2am most days of the week. In fact, I’d be willing to wager an even heftier bet that of all the days of the week, Sunday is the least likely to enjoy the company of ... Read More »

Good Friday + Good Friends = Great Easter weekend (April 3rd)

Every Easter we play host to our good friends DL, AL and their beautiful one (and a bit) year old daughter CL. It has become a yearly tradition; one that RP and I very much look forward to. With two toddlers in our midst, we didn’t plan much for the weekend. As it happens, both ... Read More »

A first birthday to remember (January 30th)

Those of you who’ve been following this blog for a little while now will know that BJ has a girlfriend – C-Bear. She is the daughter of our good friends in Sydney and was born just a little over a month after BJ (February 4th). This weekend past was her first birthday party which was ... Read More »

Day 7 of Birthday Week (January 2nd)

Day 7 was the final day of BJ’s first birthday week. It was the day RP’s Mum and step-dad came to visit from Port Macquarie. They brought with them lots of wonderful presents for BJ, including a special ride-on tricycle, which BJ just loves to ride on (even though his feet cannot yet reach the ... Read More »
