I love the way this lens can throw any background completely out of focus when you want it to.
These photos were taken on one of those rare occasions when both kids decided they were going to be a little still for the camera and even agreed to do some hugging and kissing!
More photos of my children using this lens. These practice photos may make you think my kids are super-obliging and like posing in front of the camera whenever I ask them to.
I recently purchased a 50mm f/1.8 lens. What a fantastic purchase! I’m learning how to use it and who better to practise on than my three little musketeers!
Bo and Betty’s granny was driving down a lane one day when she nearly ran over this amazing little creature.
She’s not really moody at all, not in real life. But she can definitely put on a moody camera personality.
I recently photographed a teeny-weeny 2 week old baby! What a darling! I was amazed at how quickly I had forgotten what newborns are like.
The wedding was only a month away when we did this photo shoot. We went to the nearest woods to find a backdrop for the shoot and I was pleasantly surprised at how romantic the setting turned out to be.
Most children have very short attention span. They never seem to stop playing and are always busy with something. They have barely started a new game or played with a new toy when they suddenly wander off, interested in something new.
This gorgeous little girl is a natural. She posed for the camera with great ease; in fact, she pretty much followed me around.
I’ve recently had the opportunity and privilege to photograph a perfect family of 7! They are all gorgeous. The kids are lovely and all very different from each other.
To mark the start of my children’s summer holiday from nursery and playgroup this year, we spent the first day with our good friends, the Weis, in Victoria Park.
How would you know which photos to keep in colour and which ones to convert to sepia and black and white?
As my knowledge of Photoshop barely scratches the surface, I thought I’d experiment with a few other tools that I have not used much until recently. Saturation is one of them.
When we acquired our DSLR a couple of years ago, it was my husband who read the manual, set the camera up and showed me how to take photos.
I love colour, especially bright vivid colours. They do something to the heart; they cheer me up and lift my spirits. This summer, on one of our ‘staycation’ days, we visited Hampton Court Palace.
Now that I have 3 kids, finding the time to relax and practise creative photography is very rare. So I took the opportunity to do this on a recent school trip to a fishing village in Kent as my husband had come along.
A good friend paid us a visit recently with her 2 handsome boys. Just before they left, I decided to take a few quick shots indoors without using flash.
This little boy is simply gorgeous. He looks straight at the camera, fascinated and mesmerised by the lens and the sound of the shutter clicking. This made it easy for me to take a few portraits up close.
