Ok... with just 8 weeks to go until the Gold Coast Half Marathon, I'm starting to slightly freak out! The last few weeks haven't been too kind to me, and I've been struggling through hip, calf and Achilles issues. Its nothing too serious but it means I've had to have some treatment to sort it out before the training ramps up in the next few weeks. I've been having Bowen Therapy, which has been amazing - but it unfortunately also means you cannot do any exercise for about 3 days after the session.
Sooo, frustration levels are super high - not only has my running been limited, but when I do run, my pace is slow... I'm not going to let it stop me though - my goal for my first ever half marathon is to simply finish it. I'm not pressuring myself with time goals (although doing it under 2 hours 40mins would be lovely) - I just want to enjoy the experience and not wreck myself in the process!
I met little Ryan for his newborn session when he was 6 weeks old - still a newborn but also just that little bit older - very much alert and wondering what was going on! He was very calm though and happy to be held and posed, flashing those gorgeous brown eyes at me and giving us some cute expressions... Mum Kelly was really hoping for some sleeping shots too so we focused on getting him to sleep (he really didn't want to!) and with lots of patience and perseverance, we got there!
I'm so happy for Kelly and Shailen that we were able to capture these sleeping images too.
"Hilary did incredible job with our newborn shoot! She is so friendly, lovely and easy to deal with we were very comfortable with her. She has a wonderful experience in photography. Hilary has lot of patience with babies. She knows how to handle them. We are very happy with her job. We highly recommend to all. We keep in touch with her for our future photography. Thanks Hilary you are gorgeous."
