leavin’, on a jet plane…

Now this I am excited about!! I’ve been talking about it for ages, and now, I’m locking it in and getting ready to pack my bags – it’s travel time! I will be photographing family portrait sessions in Adelaide in late 2012/early 2013. I’m just put the finishing touches on my exclusive Adelaide packages, so if you would like to be first in line to secure a spot when they are released later this week, drop me a line at rachel@rachelmeszaros.com.au.

With enough interest, I am looking at coming home via Melbourne, so if you are in Melbourne and interested in a session, let me know and I’ll add you to the waiting list!

I would also love to photograph a wedding in one of these gorgeous cities, so if you are planning a summer wedding in the southern cities, I’d love to hear from you!

Maddie :: {children’s portraits}

A couple of weeks ago, I met up with Haley and Tim in Inverell to photograph their beautiful baby girl Maddie. At 18 months, she was a great age for having her own little photoshoot, or so we thought! I think she had a fair idea of what we wanted, and she was determined to make us work for it! But when your job means hanging out with a little one this cute, I was happy to oblige!

Thanks for a lovely afternoon Haley and Tim, I hope you like your photos!

Flowers for mummy

ooo, what’s that up there?

Maddie loved the vintage child’s rocking chair I brought along…

Eventually we convinced her to sit in it

Aren’t these little tootsies just adorable?

And of course, then bunny had to have a turn!

I like big butts and I can not lie…

Big round cloth butts that is! To me, there is nothing cuter than a tiny babe with a cloth covered bottom. I’ve been a modern cloth nappy fan since our first son was born, and three children later, my stash has grown quite comprehesively!

One of my more recent stash additions is BubbaButts all-in-two snap in nappies. As well as being cute and good for the environment, these nappies also equal a lower carbon footprint for me, as they are made right here in Inverell! When Kristy first approached me about some promo shots, we were kicking around a few ideas for the shoot, and Kristy suggested a custom nappy. Which may just be the cutest butt I have ever seen…

And it even has a matching pinny!

The shoot also saw the launch of BubbaButts newest range, the SnazziButt…

And of course, we had a FunkiButt and a BareButt nappy to round out the range…

For more information on BubbaButts, head over to the Facebook page for all the latest news. You can also find BubbaButts at the Little Gems Baby and Childrens Markets in Inverell on August 13, and at the Armidale Baby Expo on September 17.

lifestyle maternity

I would have to say that lifestyle sessions are some of my favourite to shoot. I love the real-ness – capturing the moments as they happen, showing life as it is, right now. Recently, I got the chance to shoot a lifestyle maternity session with a dear friend of mine, expecting her second child. We had a wonderful morning, just hanging out and chatting, having a coffee, and playing with her adorable little boy.

Lifestyle sessions are a great way to capture life as it happens, without needing any reason greater than craeting memories for the future. Often family portraits are organised to tie-in with a milestone – a birthday, an anniversary, Christmas. A more relaxed lifestyle session is perfect for in between, “just because”. If you are interested in a lifestyle session for your family, children, baby or to celebrate your pregnancy, I’d love to hear from you!
