The story of Mother’s Group… {Melbourne Family Photography}

You may remember that last month I started a new monthly feature where, along with a few other amazing photographers, we post the story of certain elements of our lives. Then we link to the next brilliant photographer in the chain and so the chain goes along. It’s so awesome having this insight into their lives and I love sharing a bit of my life with my  fans. So this month I will be linking to the wonderful Jessica Deane Photography, so check at the bottom of the post for a link to her work.

Now a bit more about my story. I don’t know how it works anywhere else, but here in Australia, after you have your first baby you go to these meetings with a nurse and a whole lot of other first time mums who have just had babies too. When Mia was born, I met up with this amazing group of girls and four of us became quite close. While we don’t catch up much anymore because of work and life, we do still try to catch up at least a few times a year (yes, you read right, a year! hahaha) and when we do meet up, it’s like old times again. I do so enjoy meeting up with these wonderful ladies and their families and I wish we could meet up more often. One of the littlies from Mother’s group is actually my little Mia’s bestest friend and we do see his parents quite often, which is just lovely. So here is the story of our annual Christmas picnic. Hope you enjoy 🙂


This is what happens when your husband thinks he’s hilarious!

My hubby took these (the three below) so they’re a bit out of focus. Just goes to show that it’s not all about the camera, eh?

Young love! Mia with her best friend, Jorden
