Miss 8 has suddenly become the fountain of knowledge in our house, and quite frankly its making me feel inadequate!
Its like the time we were watching Millionaire Hotseat and a question came up about Pablo Picasso. We were staring blankly at the TV when miss 8 pipes up:
"Hmm, Pablo Picasso - wasn't he the inventor of cubism?"
Hubby and I looked at each other and laughed! "Um, I have no idea!!". So we googled it, and yes, wouldn't you know it, he was the co-founder of the Cubist movement!!
She is full of interesting information at the moment. I was getting something out of the oven the other day, using my rubber/plastic oven mitt - so she then told me all about thermal conductivity and that plastic was a good choice of material for an oven glove. Then I got a lesson on various materials that conduct heat - although her theory that a wooden oven glove would be awesome because of its low heat conductivity, has some obvious flaws!
So when she asked me this week if I learned about "Alliteration" when I was at school, my first thought was "Shit! Whats alliteration again?" I had to confess I couldn't quite remember exactly what it was... but never fear, she was ready with pen and paper to give me some good examples that she'd learned.
For the record (and for those who've also forgotten) - here's an example:

Leonie and Kris came for their maternity session at Tamborine earlier this year, and what a gorgeous couple they are! It was beautiful to see so much happiness and excitement in their eyes as they awaited the arrival of their little one, gender unknown!
Here are some of the favourites from this session:
And then came the arrival of a beautiful baby girl, Heidi!
Leonie chose to do the newborn session in the comfort of their own home, which is a great option if you'd like to be able to relax in your own environment, and be free to put on a load of washing or make some lunch while you wait!
Heidi was 9 days old at her session - with just the most perfect little face, and she did everything I asked of her and more, she was amazing!
I have also added a before-editing/after-editing image at the bottom of this post, for those who like to see how these images come together.
"We had our maternity and newborn shoots with Hilary. Hilary was awesome to work with and was amazing with our little girl! We are so happy with how the photos turned out. Thank you!"
Thank you guys, it was so lovely to meet you all!
