Kids are always saying things that make us chuckle... and these funny little moments often become part of a families "in-joke". I mean, I'm in my 40's now and my parents still joke about funny little things I said as a kid.
I love this so much about families, that I keep my own little book of funny things my kids say. Its one of their favourite books.
The other week we were out looking in car yards, and miss 9 saw a bunch of vans lined up in a row. She looked at them and said:
"FLAT?... mummy, are they called 'FLAT Cars'?"
And then my husband and I started to chuckle as we realised she was looking at "Fiats".
After we'd finished laughing, she then asked "So mummy, are you going to write that in the book now?"
And now, whenever we see a Fiat on the road, we all say "Oh look - a FLAT car"!
You know how much I love animals, right? Pets are such a big part of our lives, that I'm always thrilled when a client asks to bring along their pet to their portrait session! Natalie & Jason brought cute little bub Nathan for his newborn session, and beautiful pooch Lola got to join in the fun as well! Newborns and dogs - I really do have the best job in the world!
Now - because dogs are usually too excited to sit still when they are beside their new baby sibling, these images are usually created as a composite. So we photographed Nathan on his own in the little cream drawer, then he went to mummy while Lola the dog had her turn, next to the empty prop. Add a little bit of Photoshop to stitch the two together and here (top left) is the end result...
Thank you so much for sharing your morning with me to capture these precious memories!

When miss 9 joined the school instrumental program this year, well I wasn't sure what to expect. She's always full of enthusiasm to start off with, but she's been know to say that she loves the performing, but hates the practice!
So its been quite a pleasant surprise to see her whip out the flute on occasion, and hear her practising away, without being asked. She's really enjoying it, and has started talking in "music-language", of what the markings on the sheet music mean and completely baffling me with all the strange words. I think its pretty amazing that after just a few months, she knows all this stuff!
She even gave us a rendition of Hot Cross Buns the other week, which actually sounded pretty good.
Master 7 also seems to have picked up some musical ability - he can play Baa Baa Black Sheep on the organ pretty well, having been shown a few times by Nanna - but he has informed me that when he is old enough, his musical instrument of choice is going to be... DRUMS... oh help me now!!
Sweet little Ivy was just a dream to capture during her newborn portrait session in the studio recently - just look at that gorgeous little face! So tiny at just 10 days old and 6 pounds 13 oz. Thanks so much Lauren and Matt for hanging out with me in the studio - and thanks to Lauren for these beautiful words:
- "I wasn’t planning on getting a newborn photo shoot, but my husband insisted.
He chose Hilary Hudson and I am so happy we went ahead with it. The photos we got back were so amazing we had to upgrade our package because we couldn’t choose just 15 photos. Hilary was fantastic with our baby girl (especially when she wasn’t cooperating), friendly and also very professional. Thank you Hilary"
Thank you so much guys - here are a few of the favourites from this session:
