Cockatoo Island {Sydney Harbour} | Kid-Friendly Sydney

Cockatoo Island Sydney

Cockatoo Island {Sydney Harbour} Kid-Friendly Sydney

Cockatoo Island is one of those places that I had heard so much about and have always wanted to visit but for some reason or another never got around to it. Now I have, and I tell you, we can't wait to go back! It's definitely one of the most child-friendly places in Sydney.

Ten on the Tenth {Documentary-style Family Photography} | Photography

photography
I posted on my facebook page yesterday about how I've been having a bit of an internal struggle when it comes to the kind of photography I want to do once I "properly" start my business next year. I enjoy creating beautiful traditional family portraits, but what I really love is a more documentary-style of photography.

All About Aperture {Photography Basics} | Photography

photography
The Aperture. It has to be the number one thing that confuses people most about photography. By far, the aperture was the one function of my camera that took me the longest to wrap my head around.

Like the first two aspects of our cameras & exposure that I talked about in previous posts, Shutter Speed and ISO, the aperture has two functions. The first function is to help us get correct exposure for our images. By opening or closing the aperture we can let more or less light in to the camera's sensor.

Forty {52 week project} | Photography

{Punky} We went on a day trip out to Cockatoo Island last weekend (post to come) and to get there we took the girls on their first ferry ride. To say that Punky loved it would be an understatement! We couldn't drag her away from the side of the boat, she spent the entire trip there, watching the world and the water fly by. I can't tell you how much it made my heart sing to see her so full of joy.

One Perfect Moment {Long Weekends} | Life

It's been a long weekend here in Sydney and it's been a pretty one nice in these parts (aside from the scorching heat!). We had a friend round last night for a few drinks and a catch-up, and on Saturday we ventured in to the city to hop on a Sydney Ferry and head out to visit Cockatoo Island.
