Big Changes..

I have been really busy lately, and unfortunately my blog has got no attention at all! I have just updated it from my last few shoots, but a few have been re-scheduled etc due to this massive amount of rain the last 1-2 weeks! Thankfully, today is beautiful and sunny :)

I have spent many many hours recently getting my My new website built by the awesome Andrew at Phillips Design. He has put in so much hard work to do this for me, and I am so grateful as he has done such a fantastic job! I highly recommend him to anyone needing a website made! Thank you so much Andrew :)It is a MASSIVE accomplishment for me to get my website up, and a big step forward in my business, so I am really proud of that :)

I also designed new Business Cards and had them printed, they look pretty awesome if I must say so myself!

I have a Facebook Photography Fanpage up and running which is drawing in a lot of new clients and seems to be working really well for me, which is exactly why I have chosen to stop posting on my blog at this stage. Having to update my website frequently, as well as updating Facebook after every shoot and then to do the same on my blog is a lot of work! I don't really see the use in doing it to all three, so from now on I will just have My new website and my Facebook Page . For all recent shoots please visit my Facebook Page to view the photos, which is just the same as my blog :)

My photography business has taken off and become successful far quicker then I ever imagine, so I am absolutely loving all of the shoots I have happening at the moment. I need to put all my time into my family, myself and my work now, so having to update all three places is just a bit too much at this stage.

Thanks to everyone who follows my blog, I am sure I will come back again oneday, but for now I just want to stick with Facebook and my Website :) If you wish to contact me, my mobile is 0400668112 and my email is a.newmanphotos@gmail.com Amanda -xo-

Rain Rain Go Away [Family]

I really, really looked forward to Sunday's shoot and as the day got on, the weather got worse! I was adament I was going to still give it a go, and this awesome family didn't mind getting a little wet, so off we headed with gumboots and umbrella in hand! Even though it rained the whole time, I loved taking their photos, and as 'Master M' is the same age as my little Master Jack, I loved it even more-22 months is the best age! These photos turned out beautiful, and the rain made for a lovely background but we are heading out again to get more photos next week (if this weather clears) so stay tuned for more photos in the coming weeks of this cute family :) Thanks so much for braving this very crazy weather with me guys, I hope you love your photos, looking forward to Take 2!

The Lewis Family

A couple of weeks ago I headed out to the Japanese Gardens again to do some family photos for this gorgeous family. Little Matilda and Oscar, and their Mum & Dad Cayce and Chris, were such a pleasure to take photos of. I love nothing more then when I go to a shoot and am so comfortable that it feels like we have been friends for years, and could just chat forever. This is what this shoot was like, and we let the kids pretty much run wild and play just like they wanted too and I got some of the most beautiful shots I have ever taken. Thank you so much guys for letting me into your family briefly to take these, I hope you love them as much as I do, and enjoy your sneak peak! xo

Cayce and Chris have ordered to gigantic Storyboards to hang on their walls, a 20x30inch and a 16x20 inch, I can't wait to get them printed because they will look fantastic!

The Bolton Family

I headed back out to the Japanese Gardens to take some phots for Dean and Kelly of their cute little family. It was such a beautiful afternoon, and I enjoyed following the 3 boys Jack, Spencer & Rory around while they were playing and just snapping away :) Kelly and Dean only wanted a couple of certain photos, and our shoot was over and done with in just 30 minutes! I thought for sure that a shoot with 3 young boys would be much harder then that, but nope they were fantastic, and absolutely love the camera :) Here's your sneak peak guys, I hope you like it!

Kelly and Dean have ordered a massive 16x20 inch print of their youngest son, Rory to fit in on the wall with photos of the other boys at the same age-and it looks amazing!
