Babes in Cairns Event

Being flown up to Cairns for the launch of the newest Babes Project centre…? Don’t mind if I do! I enjoy all the time I spend at the Babes – so many opportunities for cute photos of divine babies and adorable kids!  I honestly look forward to every shoot with them.  And to top it...

Clothes maketh the (wo)man?

Here are pictures of Riley in pink looking and being Riley.  And there are pictures of Riley not in pink looking and being Riley.  They’re clothes, not a description of her preferences and personality.  Their function is not dependent on her gender! We’re getting to the stage where things outside of our little family unit...

Emma Race speaks at the Babes Project Rewriting Motherhood Forum

Rewriting Motherhood Forum – The Babes Project

I was very excited to be invited to photograph for The Babes Project again.  These guys not only do amazing work supporting soon to be mums, but are also so very welcoming of Riley when she comes packed with my cameras.  The Rewriting Motherhood Forum was another stellar event providing inspiration, laughter and empowerment through...

When did I become that mum?

When did I become that mum that would rather clean up her mess than stop her making it? When I follow her around the supermarket saying ‘Sorry’ and ‘Just go around’ versus wrestling her into the trolley? Where I end up buying the jar of sprinkles she’s been using as maracas during the entire shopping...

Winning and losing doesn’t rely on the score…

I’ve had the most epic of epic weekends and have the bruises to prove it!  I’ve also learnt a lot.  And also epically, it fits under all of my blog categories: photography, roller derby, parenting… I reckon I can squeeze in a gender stereotype reference and we’re all covered! The Rebellion Melbourne roller derby tournament...

Raw but still good…

I’m very much a believer in imperfect is just perfect.  An image that captures emotion, personality, relationships has much more going for it than the forced smile shot, even if it has better lighting or a prettier backdrop.  Raw can be powerful.  I’ve a couple of raw images I adore because they allow me to...

Babywearing for the win…

As its International Baby Wearing Week I thought I should sing the praises of baby wearing… The theme for International Babywearing Week’s  ninth annual celebration is Threaded Together. The inspiration for the theme comes from the many different threads that when combined through the weaving process form all of the carriers we use. All of these...

What not to buy for your new baby

I have a theory that people go back for more kids to average out the cost per child. 😛  There is also a lot of marketing out there that’s sole purpose is to make you feel guilty if you’ve not purchased the best (read: expensive) and many, many items for your darling new arrival and it’s...

Clean up in aisle two… cloth nappies

We’ve gone with cloth nappies.  I just hate the idea of wrapping raw sewage in plastic and sticking it in landfill.  Who actually reads the side of the pack and empties waste into the toilet first?  But I also wanted to be realistic and didn’t want to overload the workload when Riley first arrived home....
