Arabian Bites :: Melbourne Commercial Photogapher

It was a pleasure to work on this new business venture recently.




Arabian Bites


Mona was launching her new business and working with Meirav from Webby Web Design.

Budget was tight, but the dream would be realised


Arabian Bites


She needed some images for both the site and packaging/brochures/advertising.


Arabian Bites


The website was to be a dark tone and the imagery needed to match in and compliment the new branding by Blade.


Arabian Bites


Arabian Bites comes as ready-to-cook dough.
All the hard work is done for you.
Simply form into shapes (as small or large as you like) and fry or bake.


Arabian Bites


The result is fresh and tasty.
I must say, when rolling and prepping the dough, my hands smelled divine!





Congratulations Mona!

An Early Arrival :: Melbourne Birth Photographer

 hbfotografic-birth-photography


It's been a very busy February, and Natalie's due date was approaching. 

After a few back-n-forth emails, I knew we had to have a pre-baby chat, and so this is how it happened that Nat
and I spent 2 hours on the phone the day before her birth, talking everything from birth plans, a recent trip to New York
( theirs, not mine! ) and their beloved poodle-cross.

Natalie was insistent on a March birth.  She'd had stern words with the baby.
Everyone in their tight group of friends and family was born in Feb, so March was good to go.

Due for another 3 weeks and a first baby, I did not expect the wake-up call early the next morning!
I guess they didn't either...



 hbfotografic-birth-photography  hbfotografic-birth-photography


But it was definitely no false alarm...


 hbfotografic-birth-photography

We were here to attend a birth-day.


 hbfotografic-birth-photography

 Things were progressing quickly..

Natalie toiled brilliantly with only one early shot of pethidine for relief.

... preferring to transfer her pain to the bedsheet.

Daniel checked the clock.
He's going to be a Dad today.

and thank you for allowing me to share your story here - i'll have your video available soon!

Thank you also to the midwives of the Mercy Hospital, Heidelberg, for your continued support and acceptance
of birth photography.  And of course, the wonderful job you do bringing babies into the world.

Wrapped Around Her Finger :: Melbourne Child Photographer

I photographed this little cutie's big brother at the same age a couple of years ago and so when #2 arrived on the scene,
Mum contacted me to come pay another visit.

It was lovely to visit their new home and see images i'd taken up on the wall :)

We started our session with a little sidewalk catwalk...

And finally home for a little rest.



Thanks for seeing me again little family!
If you want to see this little girls' big brother, here he is in 2011:
Baby R

( You'll have to excuse if the images look completely washed out on your screen from that session as they do on mine! ..
it was my monitor at the time, however, all images always print perfectly
:) )



If you're looking to book for 2013, you're almost too late!
I have a few session spots open this year, but not many - so quick, quick, chop, chop - call me now!
I won't bite, but I might snap ( and tell terrible jokes :/ )
