Family fun day

Taking pictures in the middle of the day is a big no no.
Too windy
Too sunny
People are hungry...
But we did it and did it like a pro... well kinda.
They say you shouldn't work with animals and children and we conquered both. The images with both looking into the camera at the same time are limited but look great when it happened.
After we had to relocate from the preferred location due to wind we were on our way.
Some great snaps for the family album.

Pictures in the park

To no avail it rained Wed, Thurs, Fri.
For some the right of passage from teen school bounds to the freedoms of a greater life is very exciting and also nerve racking. The final year of high school is both stressful and carefree, both awkward and comfortable.
To mark the passing of some 13years of sitting in a classroom doing as you are told by some of the greatest and not so greatest of mentors along the way, we go through a myriad of celebrations. these of course include school leadership camps, holiday tours, dinners, awards nights, masses, graduation parades and lets not forget the year 12 formal.
This is exactly the special occation I was invited to share with some of this years finest of school leavers. The rain to our surprise came to a stop just in time. The sun, glitter, tule, hair spray and fake tans came out.
As girls are on nearly all of these big occassions running late, I want to thank them for missing out on some pre formal celebrations with their friends and families to get some quick snaps before their big night. The park was green from all the rain, the ducks and lizards were out sunning themselves and the buzz of excitment of night before schoolies week parties kicked in.
Stay tuned for some pics of the day and the girls and guys looking gorgeous...

Blog numero uno - Website Overhaul

The world of technology. Who thought starting a business would take 30mins and equally $30? Apparently I was wrong! Marketing advisers = tons of great advise. However if you don't have the money to compete at their standards how are you suppose to make it in this competitve market? The answer? Spending all day trying to do things you have no idea how to do.
The struggle may be gruelling and the little black humming boxes in front of you may mock you and make you look stupid at times but once you accomplish the impossible on your own at little to no extra charge, the feeling equals that of elite indulgence.
Think of that cake you made once and everyone asked where you bought it or that dress you fit into just perfect but its way over your budget just to find out its like 80% off at that present moment. Personal accomplishment happens when you conquer something you never would have even tried.
So my day was ever tiresome. Hours of computer warfare - internet gurus I applaud you.
Conclusion? When my cake came out of the oven it was rich and moist. Delivering to you guys the new improved "more professional" Graphite Photography website. Please visit and marvel at my rookie expertise.
