ACOCP – David, Kristy and Renee

I’m a proud member of Australian Community of Children Photographers also known as ACOCP

With written permission I’m able to share with you Renee Leiani – ┬áRenee meaning – Reborn and the meaning of ┬áLeiani – Heavenly blossoms. We all found out this when Uncle Tommy came to visit …

9 days old and so chubbalious everyone in the room could eat her. I meet with Renee and her wonderful family. During this time I was able to capture some beautiful moments between Renee, Mummy, Daddy, Nan, Pop, Aunty and Uncle, Pop and Aunty. Bathing, cuddles, feeding how lucky was I able to cherish this moment. Thinking of you Renee, Kristy, Dave and family.

While I was there Kristy wrote a few words.

” We first found out that Renee Leiani had some problems at 20 weeks. We were told that she wouldn’t make it full term. It was a hard and stressful 9 months but Dave and I were hopeful and our faith that God would bring our little girl to us. Renee was born on 6.7.10 and she didn’t stop fighting from day 1. Her will to live and her strength has inspired both Dave and I and our friends and family. She is so graceful our little angel, a perfect little treasure who was just given a body that didn’t work that well.

She held our hand and would just stare at us. She had such big dark beautiful eyes that we get lost in. She has blessed our lives forever …..”

to show you how chubby Miss Renee is …

Thank you to Colleen and staff at Mater Mothers Hospital Brisbane.


Photo a day – Day 27 First day of school

Personal challenge for 2010 is to take a photo a day.

Today is a special day, my last baby is off to school. He’s so exited wearing his uniform twice yesterday, being snotted on by the dog, mummy having to wash his shirt again. Waking at 5am, then bounced out of bed just before 7am. We were all early for the first time and probably the last time for school this year. I seem to be missing one child from this set, by the time Miss 10 was ready Master 4 was over it ….

Today’s photo a day … “I’ll hold your hand”

this is when we started to loose the plot …

and this was the end …. all doing their own thing. Photographers children??

Photo a day – day 23

Personal challenge for 2010 is to take a photo a day in January.

We’re all wearing thin, kids are over school holidays and there is no excitement from me taking photos of them lounging around doing nothing. After my no so much of a walk with Miss 10 and the dog. We came home to find the other two in the pool. Now to get a photo of all three together is a challenge in itself!! The girls are always willing but the boy yes one has to stand out in the crowd ….

and then we tried again one more time …. yes should have just hung the lens up for the day lol
