I always find the lead up to Christmas very stressful but this year I seemed to be better organised than others, that or I'm just not worried about all the finer details and I'm trying to concentrate on the bigger picture. Our girls are much older now and the traditions seem to have gone out the window, hang on, I'm not sure we ever had any traditions to tell you the truth, it just feels like things are much calmer this year.....maybe it was the holiday I just had!

I know I haven't been around much lately and there are several reasons for that. One is that I have stripped out my Scroffice and I'm totally re-decorating my space to suit me. Renae and Gemma have been helping me alot and tomorrow Steve picks up my new timber flooring, so hopefully that will be laid sooner rather than later. I've been taking photos along the way and I hope to share the transformation early in the New Year - finger's crossed!

The other reason is something that I can't quite share yet - but rest assured it is an exciting project I have taken on for 2010 and whilst it will be ALOT of hard work, I hope that it will be enormously successful and something that you can be part of too!

Photography sessions are starting to fill up for Jan and Feb and even April is turning out to be extremely busy time for me. My new website and blog are in development too - so it's action stations around here. I've been printing photos, canvases (even got one of my own I will share in a future post) and organising framing for my clients for Christmas presents this last week too.

Kelly and Sam were married on 4th Dec and I'm still editing away in between everything else - usually early in the morning when the house is quiet and cool. This was the first official shoot with my new Canon 5D and all I can say is I'm in love. So are Kelly and Sam, they made my job very easy indeed. Here's a sneak peek of/for the happy couple.

Kelly in a reflective moment at the altar - She was truly a stunning bride.

Love this photo of the two of them - Don't worry Kel, there's more of these ones too in colour but I really liked the velvetyness (if that's a word?) of the sepia.

These guys were soooooo much fun - and very willing particpants to try anything - It was an extremely hot day and they were very thankful when I said they could take off their jackets, but I had an ulterior motive as I wanted them to do the Toyota ad jump thing - and they did it willingly - so willingly I can't show the R rated version of this shot on my G rated blog!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whilst not a perfect photo this one gives me goosebumps.....got them now.

I think that's enough of a teaser so I'll finish by saying.....................
