lambess fam | Lake Macquarie, Newcastle and the Hunter Valley family photographer

after months of planning we managed to coordinate a date for the lovely lambess family, we had a dream location at the hunter valley which of course was unavailable on the day. so we drove around looking for the perfect spot and found it just as the sun was setting, magic.

i had such a fantastic afternoon, i didn’t want to put the camera down, so many fab shots was hard to pick a few to share.
little winnie was such a trooper for the afternoon,despite the multiple outfit changes, warm weather, numerous bugs, long grass.

isn’t she stunning.

newcastle nsw australia | worldwide photo walk 2010

so after a morning “photo-walking” at maitland, i had a brief stop for lunch and headed in to newcastle for part 2 of my worldwide photo walk. this time i had no buddies to hold my hand and was a bit nervous, i got there late had a bag malfunction and felt totally out of place. but, i managed to find some people to tag along with, and everyone was friendly and willing to show off there piccies and equipment.  for three hours we wandered through the dead beat streets of newcastle and newcastle west, then on to the glamour of honeysuckle and along the foreshore. then my batteries were dead, not the camera batteries- mine!

when i got home i realised i’d left my name tag on from the previous session, and must of looked like the dork who brought their own name tag, so i was very suprised that anyone talked to me at all 🙂 how embarrassment

and the end result..

maitland nsw australia| worldwide photo walk 2010

after spending lots of time doing photography research on-line, i stumbled across the website for the worldwide photo walk . i had no idea what a photowalk was, but thought it could be fun and was willing to give it a go. i put my name on the waiting list for newcastle and put my name down for maitland so i didn’t miss out all together. turns out i made it onto both lists and decided to try both thinking they would be very different- city/country, new/old, big group/little group, you get the picture. and i was right they were very different, and i really enjoyed the day, although after five hours of “photo-walking” i was exhausted, with sore fingers and feet.

first up was the maitland walk, which was a lovely two hour stroll through maitland (maitland mall mostly) which featured some beautiful historic buildings and a few interesting characters. i dragged my friend b and my mother along for this one, mum spent more time rummaging through the antique stores than taking pictures, which also provided some great shots.

i met a few fellow photography lovers, and can’t wait to see some of their work on

so here are a few shots from the days outing

fun at the park | Lake Macquarie, Newcastle and the Hunter child photography

after a week of rain, we were busting to get out and make the most of the sunshine, so piper and i headed off to the park with her little friends, lilly and ella.

unfortunately, the wind was icy so it was only a quick visit and then off for some babycinos

the coffs coast | Lake Macquarie, Newcastle and the Hunter travel photography

we recently spent an extended weekend at safety beach nsw, the lovely home of my even lovlier parents

they are currently doing some major land developments and even though many of the beautiful trees are gone and the nextdoor neighbours are looming ever closer, it is still a gorgeous piece of the world and always a fun, relaxing visit with some adventure  mixed in

we visited the bello markets and saw some of the local ‘wildlife’, but also saw some very creative people.  we checked out curryfest and the shey punjabi dancers which i think should be the new zumba.  had a romantic childless stroll around the jetty.  went worming on low tide, john, as always being the master wormer caught 4 whoppers. and enjoyed a lovely meal at mangrove jacks cafe
