Brad and Sophie’s E-Session – Brisbane & Ipswich Wedding Photographer

After a postponed session due to the lovely rain we’ve been having. I finally got to meet Brad and Sophie for their E-session. With the wedding in just a few weeks, there will be giggles and laughter heard throughout Beaudesert and Brisbane in April!! Don’t ask Brad for a serious face, by the time you finish saying it he’s in fits of laughter. Thank you Brad and Sophie for a wonderful afternoon. See you in a couple of weeks!

Before I run off … Happy Birthday Brad!

Who says never to work with Animals or Children?

I think I could really get into this newborn photography. They’re cute, soft and cuddly and a little bit smelly. Taken at Lone Pine Sanctuary in Brisbane QLD.

Swimming Carnival 2010 – Proud mummy moment!

Okay I’m sunburnt, it rained, we had clouds and sun … I’m burnt  but it was all worth it.. My eldest had her swimming carnival today at school. Trying not to look like the obsessed photographer, I did manage to get a couple of shots today. It doesn’t matter if you come first or last, as long as you get to the other end. Yes, all of those swimming lessons did pay off! So proud of herself Miss 10 came first in the 11 year old Breaststroke … soooo proud of my little girl!

Touch of the heart – Shave for a Cure Lisa, Dylan and Brenda

This morning while talking to my wonderful friend who’ve I’ve been lucky enough to meet 3 years ago. Going about our daily chit chat I hear scattered words ‘Shave, Head, Dylan’ …. What??? Just last Friday you had your hair done. With a big cheeky smile “Yes” popped out of Brenda’s mouth. I’m truly blessed to have such a wonderful and caring friend, who’d do anything for her family and friends.

A little story behind Lisa and Dylan (Brenda’s words) “I was crying lying here just thinking about Lisa and how to put into words to share this beautiful person who wasn’t just a sister in law but was my dearest friend for over 20yrs we all went to school together….”

Dylan was just 7yo when his Mother was diagnosed with Breast Cancer – Lisa just 32.

Lisa turned all her energies into battle this insidious disease, she underwent major surgery and had several rounds of Chemotherapy and radiation therapy and had other major surgical procedures.  Lisa always approached these bravely and without complaint believing all would be ok in the end.  After 5 years and a long fight Lisa felt she had got on top of her health problems and in 2006 she returned to work. However in November 2007 a devastating blow the cancer had returned in her Liver and bones, after the initial shock Lisa again started to fight bravely and without complaint believing she could beat it again something she believed till the very end. Lisa always had a smile and her concern was always for others especially for her son Lisa loved life and lived it to the fullest. Sadly on the 19th July 2009 Lisa at just 40 lost her battle.

Dylan who has recently turned 16 has organised an event on Sunday to shave for a cure so to support my nephew and raise some money for a very good cause I will be also going under the clippers!!

If you’d like to sponsor Brenda and Dylan please contact me via        info@kylieeatherphotography.com.au      I can pass on your details to Brenda. I’ll be blogging over the next few months, as Brenda is 34 weeks pregnant. This Friday I’ll be doing a mini maternity session, along with after the shave then further along once “Willy or Wilhelmina” comes into the world.
