Blogging… going forward.
Blogging... going forward.

My domain is up for renewal and I really am unsure of what to do, start to blog again, stop blogging altogether, blog but differently so my children maintain their privacy, blog but password protect my posts. So many questions. What should I do?

Lofty ambitions.
Lofty ambitions.

Its November and that means Nablopomo or National Blog Posting Month where I am supposed to do a blog post a day! Which is incredibly ambitious when you look at how sporadic my blog posts have been for the last few months. Even more ambitious when its the second day of the month and already […]

Melbourne – redacted.
Melbourne - redacted.

I remember making the same mistake last year after the Aussie Bloggers Conference, I started reading everyone’s incredible recap posts and suddenly developed a terrible case of doubting myself. It didn’t help that I had been having some serious concerns about the state of my blog and I wasn’t entirely sure that I really wanted […]

Homebodies.
Homebodies.

Poor Ron had to go back to work today, its a bit of a reality check for all of us and Amy has been asking a lot of questions about how school is going to work. I know she is starting to think about all the changes coming up. I managed to talk her down […]

Everywhere and nowhere.
Everywhere and nowhere.

Like the obligatory New Year’s detox or healthy eating plan or diet (whatever name you call it!) the internet is full of photography ‘things’ in January. I don’t mean to sound petty but I have to confess to being a little tired of seeing 100 variations on the same photograph when I check in for […]

A change of focus.
A change of focus.

I suppose that in some ways it was going to be inevitable, that my blog would slowly change shape and become less about the writing and more about the photography. I could ponder on that for a few weeks, or just change the layout to suit the nature of my blogging. More emphasis on the […]

Baby girl.
Baby girl.

Ok, I know, enough with the photographs! But its Friday night, its late, I am tired and I need to go to bed so that great blog post I have been writing about why swimming lessons make me feel like a successful Mother, will have to wait until I find some time to write. In […]

A flying visit to the zoo.
A flying visit to the zoo.

Last week Stella and I met some new friends for a playdate at the zoo. The weather was looking ominous but cleared spectacularily that morning and despite arriving and realising that someone had taken the stroller out of the car, Stella and I had a fabulous time. Our girls had fun but weren’t particularily interested […]

Sorry. What can I say?
Sorry. What can I say?

Time slips by and suddenly its August. What have we been doing? Stuff…..

Some housekeeping and a bucket list.

See that Photograph over there on the right in my sidebar? =============> I finally managed to make a pretty badge for my photography business Sarah White Images which has been on my to-do list for ages. I realised this weekend that there is no mention or link to my business on my personal blog apart from down […]

Through a lens.
Through a lens.

In 1994 I was 17 years old, I had just finished high school and was on my way to study a Bachelor of Journalism in a small university town in South Africa. I was young, so very young and so very idealistic. I had great belief that I was going to change the world and […]

While we wait…
While we wait...

Our house is buzzing with anticipation, my Mum arrives tomorrow for a two week visit and we are all completely over excited! In lieu of a meaningful blog post I am going to show you my iphone photographs from the last week or so, its a good snapshot of our lives and I must confess […]

My colourful muse
My colourful muse

Amy’s best friend from preschool had her 5th birthday party this weekend. Luckily the rain held off for a few hours so they could enjoy the clown themed party. Amy was first in line for the face painting and does it suprise you she chose to be a princess? No, didn’t suprise me. She was […]

Catching up with technology
Catching up with technology

For years now I have been longing for an iphone, longing, with a physical intensity. Everyone else seemed to have one, everywhere I looked were people playing angry birds and taking photographs of their feet with the hipstamatic app. Sigh. I felt sorry for myself and carried on dreaming of the day my contract was […]

Take a breath.
Take a breath.

A few weeks ago I had a morning to myself for a photoshoot with a new baby and her proud parents at their house in the inner city suburbs. Amy was at preschool, Stella was with my friend Julie as part of our shared childcare arrangement and I was on my own. I gave myself […]

Starting again
Starting again

My Mum has been asking me to update her portraits of my girls. I wish I could explain to you how hard it is to get a decent photograph of my children! Its not as easy as just grabbing my camera when I see the opportunity, if I want to get a selection of photos […]

Moving my blog

Right, so in case you didn’t know, I am going to be an attendee at the inaugural Australian Bloggers Conference which is happening here in Sydney next month. Its an incredibly exciting event and hopefully the start of great things in the world of blogging here in Australia. Its also been a source of some […]

Grumpy

She wasn’t actually that grumpy, just irritated with me because I kept taking photographs instead of opening the sliding door like she wanted! 21 months and still not talking much but certainly able to get her point across!

My precious…

Just checking in to say that today I dropped off my precious laptop to be fixed. I am hoping its not complicated and that they will call me early next week because of course the moment I tried to start up the clunking old pc in my bedroom, I got the blue screen of death. […]

I have said it before, I’ll say it again

(portrait by Amy) I am finding it hard to find the time to blog, which makes me sad. I am focusing what little spare time I have on the business right now, hoping that it will be ready to relaunch in the new year as a fully functioning, full priced business. My immediate problem is […]

A year in the blink of an eye

I don’t think any words are necessary! Our jacaranda full garden last year, and this year. Including one delightfully chubby and now hirstute baby….

My precious

Love, love, love, love……
