Butterfly in the Wind

A child is…….

A butterfly in the wind,

Some can fly higher than others;

but each one flies the best it can.

Why compare one against the other?

Each one is different! 

Each one is special!   

Each one is beautiful!

I must admit I have loved working on these kind of videos lately.  They are so fun and this sweet girl and her sister were so lovely to photograph.   If you saw my series – JinkyArt Styled Portraits online Workshop you may remember this session. Well, I couldn’t help but animate it.  Ill be adding a ‘how to’, and these elements into the January release of the Post Processing Videos.

Much love xooxox Barb

 

From a recent session in Jindabyne, Australia.  Two years in the making – and I am so thankful….. so so thankful that they picked me as their family photographer.

Thank you Kate.

Together we dreamed up this wonderful winter wonderland shoot and it was just so fun. Of course, being winter we didn’t have long to shoot even though it was September here which really means it was Spring. Christmas has extra special meaning to this family, and I will definitely be sure to share some more from this session as the holidays draw near.

Sweet Taylah and her mum – I have been asked to share more from this session and promised I would – and then didn’t get around to it.  I’m sorry. I have bloggers guilt. Its social media’s fault – I’m going to blame that (here’s me pointing all my fingers at social media like a 5 year old!).  These days I post one image on instagram, meaning to share more but never really get to it, and my social media brain goes into over-drive.

But, the upside is, since I’m going to blog again, its fun to go back and share.

This entire session was filmed as part of my online workshop video series “Maternity, Mum & Baby“. Which is actually the last of our 3 part series, however we released it first.  I know, always walking backward, its much more fun that way.

Its a wrap up of both Styled and Lifestyle sessions, which compliments the upcoming JinkyArt Styled Sessions Video series & The JinkyLife Lifestyle Sessions Video series. The JinkyArt one is coming next. Just like my blogging, things take a wee while to organise.

About Blogging

A friend recently asked me why I no-longer blog and my mind immediately went to ask, “well, does anyone actually blog anymore?”.  Then of course, I felt all nostalgic and sad for the loss of all the blogs on the planet and went hunting to see if I was in fact correct.

And what do you know, I was wrong. There are still so many bloggers out there tapping away at their keyboards. Not that I was ever a “talking blog”.  I am one of those people who worry entirely too much about how people might read what I’m saying incorrectly, or judge me, or burst into hysterical laughter over my ridiculousness.

But then, it occurred me to that since I turned the big 4.0, I have been less inclined to worry about such things. I think its like fine wine, I’m improving with age?  Or is it that I just can’t be bothered with that when there are so many lovely people out there! I think it might be that.

Plus, I know not everyone ‘does’ social media right?  So, here I am blogging.

Why not! I say – and I have so many shoots I could have blogged but never did. So Im going to go back and do that.  It’ll be fun. So if you are the 1 person reading this, thank you. I appreciate you very much!

This is baby Harriett. Sweetest little baby.

xoxo

There really is so much I want to say about this sweet sweet girl. However, really, her mum says it all so well. And with so much love.

She is so very loved.

From Dashas Mum prior to the shoot :

“She is the survivor of quadruplets and a traumatic pregnancy, and also the survivor of childhood cancer. She is quite an extraordinary little girl. She is the greatest joy of our lives.

Dasha has had a challenging journey since birth. She’s endured pain and frightening symptoms before a diagnosis of cancer at just 2 years and 12 days of age. She smiled and braved her way through treatment. That treatment involved isolation, and being unable to be in the presence of flora or fauna. Having overcome her cancer (stable as its incurable but can remain stable for life) there is nothing, absolutely nothing in this world than my little girl loves and appreciated more than baby animals (puppies in particular), flowers, soft grass and sunsets or pretty skies.”

Dasha’s session was gifted to her by some extraordinary people.  oxoxo. Plus very special thanks to SummerLees for the wonderful location  & Chris from bringing her gorgeous puppies along. And of course to Shelley for organizing the whole thing xoox.
