Victoria Point beach shoot

I've been a little consumed with photography this week and after spending another fantastic afternoon with that same group of talented photographers and also Andrea Joki (from Finland), I have been spending most of my time proofing my photos. It's exhausting and I'm off for a quick afternoon siesta while Joshua sleeps after I post this shot. While we were provided with the most gorgeous models (children of all ages), I really ended up loving this shot of my son Ethan. That's OK for a Mum isn't it!

Yesterday, we met at a small beach at Victoria Point at 4pm. There were gorgeous coloured boats anchored in the sand and the children had so much fun in the water.
A couple of girls have asked about how this all came about. I visit a great photography site called It's an international site with heaps of hugely talented photographers as well as beginners who are interested in child photography. These get-togethers were organised by a Brisbane photographer who flew out Andrea Joki, a well respected photographer from Finland, to be her Mentor for 2 weeks. She kindly organised for us all to enjoy some days out in their company along with models and props included - at no charge. I have learnt so much and look forward to my last day out with these girls on Sunday at the Gold Coast on the beach - should be so much fun!

Thanks always for your kind comments and hopefully I'll be scrapping some of these pics real soon.
