Christmas Time Again

I don’t know about you, but it feels like only last month I was packing away last years decorations and here it is again. I love Christmas, not the madness of entertaining, but the lights the decorations, the fun of watching children’s eyes light up in wonder.             Unfortunately this is often a time of stress, frustration and tension for many adults, so today I want to encourage you to look at Christmas through a Continue reading

Will I ever get there?

This is a question I get asked a lot as a photo coach and critiquer. Often people compare their photos with others they see online and they wonder what the point is, there are so many great images out there and I will never be as good as them so what’s the point?

Excitement plus as we raced to Continue reading

My first instruction is going to sound really basic and overwhelming at the same time, but keep reading. Firstly, read the manual….I know it’s huge Continue reading

Unexpected changes

Sometimes life gives us lemon, this is a great time to learn to make lemonade. My husband got some sandfly bites in Darwin and by the time we got to Kununurra we should have gone and seen a DR, but men being men, he didn’t want to, so we treated them with tea tree and silver and they appeared to be clearing up. We spent a few days camping out before we got to Roebuck Roadhouse and caravan Park about Continue reading
