Confession - its been 12 months since my last hair cut. My hair grows so slowly, and is so fine, that I can usually get away with many months between hairdresser visits.
But I always know when my hair is getting TOO long, because it simply lives in a permanent pony tail. Also, I start leaving trails of random loose hair everywhere. In the bathroom, on my back ("IS THERE A HAIR ON ME?") and apparently, in every single meal that I cook for my husband.
So it was long overdue for a chop.
Unfortunately, I went a bit too short this time, shorter than I wanted, anyway. Hubby likes it a bit longer, and so it took him a few days to mention it - no doubt choosing his words wisely before saying anything.
Master 6 isn't a fan either. He looked at me in despair - "Mummy? Why did you cut all your hair off?"
"Um because I wanted to! Why, don't you like it?"
He shook his head shyly, and looked sad.
Miss 8 cant understand why ANYONE would want to cut their hair - doesn't everyone want long long hair like Rapunzel?
Oh well - given the speed in which my hair grows, it should be looking just about right in 3-4 months time!
I'm lucky enough to get to meet some beautiful people in my job, and Natalie, Tim and their family were no exception! I LOVE LOVE LOVE doing maternity/newborn sessions - watching your family grow, being part of creating those memories and being able to document that for you - well its pretty special to be a part of.
Natalie left some kind words in a Facebook review:
"Highly Recommend Hilary, she is the most loveliest person and the most brilliant Photographer. Our family had the most amazing time building memories getting these photos taken.
Thank you Hilary for delivering such perfect photos and memories of our beautiful family. We will be back for some updated pics in years to come"
Here are some faves from the maternity session here at Tamborine.
And then little Maisy Jae was here! Just 7 days old on the day of her in-home session, she was an absolute dream to work with and did whatever I asked of her and more! Her big brother and sister did a great job of helping mum look after her too. What a gorgeous family!
