Thoughts for the day…

I’ve been doing a bit of thinking lately, (I know – scary right?!) and I’ve been pondering on the age old question of what makes me, well, me? 🤔

It’s interesting to think about isn’t it…

I mean, that is the reason I designed Desire Images in the first place.

Too often we get so caught up in everyday life, that we forget who we are. Am I right? As parents our identities become compromised. We are no longer ourselves, we become “someones mum” “someones dad”, the worker, the provider, the cleaner, the taxi driver (seriously, how many after school activities do we need to do?!!!)

I am working with an extraordinary lady at the moment, and I love her vibrancy and energy. She asked me some questions, and although they seem surface level easy to answer… when you actually stop and think its quite tricky.

I know I have a fire in my gut to do the impossible – to be challenged. I know I love creating and making artworks. I know I am exceptional at getting the kids that are challenging to co-operate/ work with their energy to create magic for their parents. I know that everyone is accepted – for who they are. I know that I want to give the world to everyone.

As I have grown, Desire Images has grown too. It has emerged as a place where you can be yourself, you don’t have to just fit into one neat little box. There is often a great deal of laughter in our sessions. Family, kids, baby, styled, corporate, schools, each have their own personalities and styles – but one thing remains consistent, and that is that anything is possible. We just have to have hope.

Making time for memories

Its hard to make time to get the kids photos taken isn’t it. I get it. Life is so super crazy sometimes. Can you believe we are already mid March!?! Yikes!

My beautiful friend has brought her two youngest to me to photograph every year now since he was born. We have been getting a ‘growing older’ photo. It is so cool. Each year, he holds the photo of him holding the photos. It’s pretty incredible to watch this young man grow over the last six years!!

I am blessed to have this family as friends.

Styled Kids Dream Photo Session

Our Styled Kids sessions are fully styled, customized sessions that truly capture the individuality of your little (and not so little) one and our endless creativity to bring out the uniqueness in them.

Styled sessions are available for children who love attention!

These sessions take our set designs and creativity to a whole new level above and beyond our regular sessions and we provide it all… the custom clothes, the handcrafted décor, and the dreamy edited backdrops in a one-of-a-kind session experience to bring the unique creative vision to life.
And, in our Styled Kids sessions we are focused on getting THE shot. The one that’s going to hang huge on your wall.  While some of these image seem simple, a lot more goes into them
than appears!

Your package will start with a phone consultation with the artist herself! Together you will collaborate on all creative aspects of the vision for your session or just brainstorm on any inspirations or dreams you may have for your session.  These don’t have to be the most elaborate sessions ever made, we can keep it very simple, but still just focus on your child!

Once a vision is decided on, Kate will take the lead in designing every last detail of your session
including: outfits, props, and location venues.

Your package will come with about 10-20 fully edited, high definition digital images from the session that will be given to you on a USB thumb drive, as well as a digital dowloadable link.

As well, you will be able to choose from either a 20 x 30 custom acrylic or canvas wall print making a great statement piece and a unique addition of fine art to any room in your home!
Pricing for our Dream Sessions start at $1,500 and includes all costumes, props.

Please ask for more details.

New Year, Fresh Start!

Can you believe that in 2 days time, we are starting a new year? It certainly is blowing my mind!!!  Thank you all for your continued support over the last year. It means a lot.

Let’s get on top of 2019 – before the craziness of daily life hits again. 🙂

Book your updated family session before school goes back. Seriously, a fab family session is really fast and easy for you to do. All you have to do it come dressed ready to go (or bring clean clothes for the kids if they tend to grot themselves in the car).  My goal is to capture some awesome images, you just have to resist buying them all .. haha

We will look at, and choose the photos straight as soon as we are done. So you only have to make one trip.

Digital files start at your fav 10 for $350lets-go-2019.jpg
