life as we know it...

it has been a completely hectic and busy time for us here in the turnbull household and so too keep up sometimes i need to take a step back so i personally can continue. no i'm not really any super mom or wife or person, i'm just me doing the best i can within the limited confines and circumstances i find myself to be in. 

last time i blogged i was heading to the kids market central vic with my very first stall. how did i go? well for me it was about displaying my work...yes my photography in all it's art form and letting families know i'm out there. time will tell with how i have gone as i had a special for the day for those that came and took a flyer and booked in a session for the month of september and october. no bookings on the day and we're only just heading towards the start of september now. however it was truly wonderful to network with other businesses and feel the vibes of the day. there was certainly alot of interest in my work and both flyers and business cards went out the door.

this past saturday and sunday i worked...oh no i didn't work i yes i had 2 photo sessions. one photo session was a young boy out on their family farm just out of town (about 30 mins) and the other a local family i've now known for awhile. so i'm busy editing clients images as i blog (taking a break) and although the *sneak peek* for both families are now done and uploaded to my facebook page here at chris turnbull photography i'm yet to finish each gallery for previewing although working on it.

and with that thought in mind...i'll love ya and leave ya with a little glimpse into each photo session from the weekend.

photo session from saturday out on the family farm of young callum with his dog tess who gave birth to 14 puppies about 1.5 weeks ago with 1 dying and 13 healthy puppies doing well. of course one of the roosters from the farm was on show as well strutting his stuff.

little sneak peek of the family photo session from sunday. all brothers with 2 of them on the autism spectrum. top photo is young rhylan who has autism, middle photo is logan who is neurotypical and then the last photo is of bryson who has asperger's syndrome.

remember if you're looking for quality and affordable photo sessions and packages within the city of greater bendigo area (although will also now travel outside of town (within reason) for photo shoots) contact me. i can also (but not solely) cater and accommodate for families who have children and loved ones with additional and special needs such as autism spectrum disorders etc.

kids market central vic...

excited...yes i am because i've booked my first stall at the kids market central vic for the 20th august. i'll be displaying some of my photos and offering a 'market day' special for those that book a photo session on the day. i've got my prints in order, ideas for display, business cards, banner is on it's way and flyers just need to be finalised. 
i'm hoping for plenty of folk to stop by and say hi and i'm hoping to meet some wonderful stall holders as well. not too many sleeps left and it's busy busy busy. so for local folk...spread the word and for those that are heading up to bendigo on the day, make sure you pop the kids market on your agenda and stop on by, there is going to be loads happening with about 90 stall holders and heaps of fun for the kids too.
anyhoo short and simple tonight, the weekend is here and it's been a really tough week for this family so i'm looking forward to the weekend spent recharging and pottering about home taking some much needed time out.
see you at the market, hugs chris xoxo

wow can you believe today is the first day of august, first day of the last month of winter and it's almost spring...yes that season that is simply gorgeous us only one month away although the weather of late makes me think spring has possibly sprung a little early. blossom is already out, gorgeous wattle and it kinda smells like spring too. of course the obvious sign that spring has hit a little early is the fact that i've started spring cleaning and haven't quite worked out any other reason behind this weird and odd behaviour of

anyhoo it's been quiet the past 3 weeks or so with photography...the weather (a negative when it comes to having on location photos taken) isn't the best for photo shoots and so as it starts to warm up i'm hoping that the bookings will also take off a little too. 

today is going to be a short and simple post in amongst everything else on my to do list this week. yes one of them was to blog and so here it next post. can you believe that we have less then 5 months till christmas....scary as!!!! i'm hoping to be more organised this year then i was last year or even the year before. i love christmas with all it's trimmings i just dislike it when it creeps up so quickly and then announces to the world it's here way before i got a chance to realise it.

but i'm ready for it this year....very ready and this time i'm not letting it arrive unannounced...nope not this time ;)

ok well now that i've started talking christmas, probably secretly being told to hush up by my followers here's a recent photo. oh and pop on over and like my fb photog page....i'm on facebook here. share the love and spread the word and for all those local folk out there looking to have photos done contact me.

love my girl, love the look, love those huge brown eyes, love this image. hugs and ciao for now, chris xoxo
