Posing vs Natural

BWNEOANDJAZSometimes posing children can be quite difficult especially when you are trying to photograph a baby and a child, and they  have no interest in paying intention. They would rather explore and play.  Well, that is what I discovered on Monday. I mean this was a wonderful way to start the week off, adventuring with my niece and nephew. Unfortunately, the oldest child out of the three was at school so he could not be apart of this shoot.

Posing Baby Neo gave me these looks, stunned and confused. He was not quite feeling it that morning. He was more interested in eating leaves and exploring with his senses, children do not like being bothered whilst exploring and you probably can tell by looking at the above images. However, when we took the children to a playground I was able to capture more natural looking images with amazing smiles.

 

Check out Miss Jazzy on the flying fox and the Ultra Spin equipment, laughter and smiles without being asked to smile, I just clicked away.  Look at Mr Neo down below, he was super brave on the sea-saw, you might not be able to tell but his mum was standing right next to him holding the sea-saw still so he wouldn’t fall.

This post was called pose vs natural for a reason.

Eventful Monday

Hey everyone, I haven’t posted in a few days but hope you are all doing well. Yesterday morning was quite eventful for me after one of my birds got out.

My Indian ringneck who I adopted two years ago got out. Took me two hours to get her pack, but she didn’t stop calling out to me one letting me know where she was.

I got her back and she just wanted my company.

It makes your heart beat when an animal is let loose. She’s been to the vet for check ups and wing trim because I just can’t bare to go through this again.

Simple and Tasty

Last night I took part in making Hawaiian Scrolls for the family. Simple and Tasty, and who doesn’t love Puff pastry. This cooking experience is also a great experience for children. You can chose either sweet or savory .

If you are looking for ways to keep occupied during these tough times or just looking for something simple to make then you should try making scrolls.

200 degrees for 15 to 20 mins

Make sure you have defrosted your Puff pastry before you try to roll it as it can break.

You can use tomato or BBQ sauce I find it’s easier to apply all over with the base of the spoon. I used leggos pizza sauce. Cheese, ham and pineapple.

Butterflies and Birds

Hey everyone welcome back to my blog! Due to currents restrictions and rules in Australia I have not been able to travel with my fellow bloggers and friends to capture the world around us. I have decided to use my isolation time to capture images from Home.

Above images are of some of the times of butterflies we have had visit us over the past couple of days.

Laurie

Why have I never written about my birds? My true loves and soul mates. They are truly understanding creatures with big hearts and a big personalities. Meet Laurie, mummy’s boy, have had him since he was two months old. I swear he suffers separation anxiety and a mood disorder. One minute he loves you and the next he wants to eat you.

Laurie is now seven years of age. He knows how to speak really well and he can do shakes also. He is quite the chatterbox.

Laurie has travelled to Mount isa with me he loves going new places and meeting new people.

Even nature sends hope

Do you believe in your third eye? Opening to the spirit world, allowing loved ones to communicate with you. Sometimes they send messages through dreams, smells, sound and even butterflies. I have been seeing Grandma herself as a spirit, where as I believe she has been sending messages to all of us.

After grandmas first husband passed away, my grandma met my grandfather, they became beat friends and lovers. Pa and grandma did some garden renovations to the house, they planted bottle brush trees at the front. I can’t say how many years ago this was. This week the bottle brush with white flowers has been covered in butterflies and bees, it’s amazing and can tell this brings so much joy to his heart ♥

I like to say they are a message from the spirit world as Pa says he hasn’t seen the tree like this in 40years

Visiting the Governor

I have found going to cemeteries comforting and peaceful, sitting with the dead and admiring their tomb stone’s. It’s amazing to see the different types and to see the work and effort people have to put in to caring for loved ones. In the Toowong Cemetery Brisbane, Australia lays the second Governor of Queensland, Governor Blackall. I went to see him for the second time today and when I got home there was a message in the clouds in the image I took. A cross.
