A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014.

Ruby / Book Week! She was so impressed with her Hermione hair..
Cole / a terrible week of germs being passed around at kindy.. 'mum, I just feel the worst ever. EVER!'
Eliot / the boy who hates bandaids - but there was no way around it after an exceptional stack off his bike.

Meet the Arthur family..

I do wonder if I will ever have the drive for blogging like I used to. I used to make time for it. And now it has fallen to the bottom of the list - way down where things only get done if I have enough energy left over to do them. Which usually means I don't. Yet when I share a post, I still enjoy it - it's just not a priority like it used to be.

Things change and our priorities move around in all directions, like leaves floating down a river, weaving in and out of one another, overtaking and falling behind. Sometimes the things that are in the lead for your attention are the things you wish were right at the back. But that's life.

We are a few weeks away from a nice long break - from everything. A month off school and kindy, and a good stretch of time away with my family in the sunshine. There is much to do between now and then and I feel as though the tick of the clock is right at my heels, pushing me to just keep moving, yet not trying to do too much after what happened on our last trip away.

I'm not even sure what this post is for - I just felt like I needed to catch up. Post something - anything - just for me. Perhaps I should include snippets of the families I have been fortunate enough to photograph over the last month? But no. That deserves it's own post. Maybe tomorrow..

meet the herrett family

Last month I flew to Sydney to photograph some families and catch up with old friends and new. Busy and full, with a very strict schedule to fit it all in, including driving all over Sydney (no mean feat!) but my goodness was it wonderful! Sydney turned on the weather - two days of bright blue skies and sunshine warmed my bones and whisked the cobwebs away. Winter.. what winter?

I spent late Saturday afternoon with Michelle and Matthew, and their four beautiful children Aston, Stella, Archie and Lucy. Climbing trees and searching for every pipi on the beach, and swinging as the sun dipped below the horizon and we farewelled the day.

This film is sitting high up on my list of favourites - to make and to watch. I spend a lot of time on these, and so, become quite attached. I never know whether my clients will view them the same way I do.. will they love them as much as me? A little while after I had emailed it to Michelle, she responded..
'Oh Tahnee, that is soooooo beautiful, I am crying! Crying even more than I was last night when Offspring finished, and that's saying something! Thankyou SO much!!'
You can see the full collection of stills over here.

ten on ten / august 2014

So much for getting out of the house for this month's set of Ten on Ten..

A nasty bout of sinusitis has had me housebound for most of the past week and I'm frustrated to find the drugs are not working as fast as I want them to! So another riveting set.. PJ day with the husband working and the rain falling.. stuck inside.. AGAIN! We are so ready for you, Spring!

A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014.

Ruby / she at cake and chatted - loudly - to the boys, who played in the freezing cold on the other side of the glass. In that moment I saw myself. Her stance, her long limbs, her contentment at eating cake..
Cole / I see a teenager in this one
Eliot / another early afternoon bath for my snotty little love
