One of my goals last year was to learn how to use my dslr on manual, but as far as I got was aperture priority mode. With our baby due in late March, I took the plunge and I've been doing an online beginner photography course and finally made the switch to manual mode. I'm so glad I did, I'm learning so much, and enjoying my camera so much more.
We had a few days away in Canberra this week, a change of scenery was just what we all needed!
Leah ~ posing on a rock at the Canberra Dinosaur museum. I don't know what it is, she just looks different in this picture.
Milly & Emmett ~ they picked the dandelions and blew them out at the place we were staying in Canberra.
Max ~ running, always running.

"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014."
I cannot beleive we're at the end of this awesome project! I managed to take a photo every week, although not always uploading and linking them up. I'm so excited to turn these pictures into a book, a keepsake I'm sure I will cherish as my children grow before my very eyes.
I can't wait to start all over again, and am looking forward to having 5 kiddos to photograph when we welcome our new addition in late March. Here's to an exciting 2015! 


~ four exhausted children chilling out on the lounge together after bathtime. December is most definately the most wonderful, yet exhausting time of year.~
Emmett ~ his favourite pose at the moment
Leah and Max ~ she is always playing the role of Max's second mother, when he'll let her.
Milly ~ she just came out dressed like this one morning, just because. Funny girl.
