Babywearing // keep doing what you love

This year I have had the honour to work for a number of companies which I love and one of the funnest jobs was working for Tula Baby Carriers. After we started using our toddler Tula last year I developed a relationship with the business owner, Ula who I cannot tell you how much I admire. I was so happy when she asked me to create some videos to represent baby wearing and the Tula brand. This year with our conscious move to be more aware of where and how we spend our money, supporting a mama-owned business has been a joy to me. It helps that I absolutely love our Tula and it’s easy to promote things you love ;)

In honour of World Babywearing Week I thought it would be a great time to share this video and I hope you enjoy it! It is one of a number I made for Tula and you can check the rest out over on the Tula Facebook Page as they are being shared throughout baby wearing week!

    I no longer have a Facebook :-/ is there another way I can try to win the rainbow Tula carrier? With my baby turning 10 months today, I will need a toddler carrier sooner than I realize! (We are a stroller free family!)

Parent Prep

Sometime ago I was contacted by the lovely Rebecca from Parent Prep about coming down to Melbourne and creating a little video to represent her services. Rebecca, a registered nurse, runs Parent Prep which is Melbourne’s parenting preparation, postnatal and settling support and maternity concierge service.

I was so happy to be able to take part in this project and capture Rebecca at work. As she says in the video, so many of us enter new parenthood in isolation and it was so lovely to see all these parents being offered wisdom and support at this special time of their lives. All her methods were very gentle and respectful and I hope you enjoy a little peek at the services she offers.

I wish more parents had access to a service like this… while filming her consultation with expectant parents I was having lots of ‘I wish someone told me that!’ moments. It was a nice refresher for me before our baby arrives.

If you’re in Melbourne or would like to share this service with someone who you think might need it – check out Rebecca’s facebook page.

Be warned, the video includes lots of cute faces like this little beauty, Isis <3 If I wasn’t already pregnant I would have flown straight home from filming this to get pregnant ;)

    Hey! You are doing improvements and changes in your blog, love changes! I want to make them too, but can’t decide/find the time.

    My third is 9 months old today, and I can’t get out of my mind I’d like another one… but things are getting difficult around this parts… I think I will never ever loose this “I want a baby” feeling.

    Love this video, as I do all your work Georgia. :-) My only other comment is that (at least on my Mac, the music is louder than the audio. Don’t know if it’s the same on a PC but it made it difficult for me to hear what was being said.
    Oh, and I agree with you, that knowing how you talk about loving babies, if you weren’t already pregnant you’d be getting that way asap after spending time with these adorable babes. lol

Love Carries On // ergobaby

As I’ve mentioned before - this year my love-affair with our Ergobaby carrier was able to blossom into shooting some imagery for Ergobaby.  It is so wonderful to be able to work for a company producing a product I really believe in and to photograph something that has given us so much joy (and all the parents & babies I photographed wearing it!).

This time I was shooting images a little different to last time. I have had so much fun shooting this set of images for their latest campaign ‘Love Carries On’ and was even lucky enough to meet their community manager, Christina on my brief layover in LA in April. Work isn’t work when it’s fun and these were so much fun to shoot.

You can see some of these images in use over on ergobaby.com

Ergobaby lovers – keep your eye out for an exciting #LoveCarriesOn contest starting soon and start tagging your instagram photos!

Welcoming Theodore

(best in HD)

Recently I spent nearly 2.5 weeks in Tennesse documenting the home birth arrival of a little chubby boy into his warm-hearted family. What an honour I have to be entrusted into such intimate times in peoples lives, seeing hearts unfold as a new life is welcomed. Finding that love & family are so very much the same no matter how far you travel.

This is a special birth video not because I travelled halfway around the world to document it but because it includes three parts, the waiting, the birthing and the welcoming of this sweet boy into his family. It was so special to be able to capture the magic of waiting for, birthing and enjoying a new baby and get to know Amelia and her family – now I feel like I’ve left some of my heart behind in Tennessee.  This video is a little longer than my birth films usually are but it’s worth the little sit down with a cup of tea to watch and enjoy.

As always, I am honoured by Amelia’s openness to share her video & images from the birth of her sweet little boy with you all too.

    This was just amazingly beautiful. I was in tears the whole time. Your work in capturing the details for this beautiful family was amazing. Blessings to them and their gorgeous little one!

    I have a question, not sure if you’re able to ask the mama this, but I loved their bed frame and would live to know where it’s from if you can. :)

    Wow. Such a beautiful video! I am over here in tears as my two little girls go about playing. What an incredibly special way to document the birth of a precious new family member. Momma did great, I am always amazed at momma’s who handle birth so well. Motherhood is clearly something she was meant for :)

Images for Miou

As I’ve mentioned before I’ve been a busy-bee lately trying to squish as much work in before I take a long-awaited break to welcome our third baby into our family. I am planning to take a long maternity leave to just enjoy being a new family of five so have been getting as much done as possible before then. I’ve got a few posts to share of what I’ve been up to photography & film wise.

These are some images I had the pleasure to shoot of a gorgeous kids knitwear range called Miou. They are Canadian company producing  fair trade knits for kiddos. Supporting fair-trade has been something that has been really important to me lately (as I wrote about here) and so it was lovely to be able to provide Miou with some imagery that reflects the quality and love knitted into each little piece. Our children do not normally like to wear woollens but these were made of 100% baby alpaca wool so they are super soft and durable. The kids were actually (surprisingly to me) delighted when I said they could keep them after they modelled for me!

Hope you enjoyed the images of this beautiful evening we spent photographing and enjoying one of last days of Autumn. Winter is on her way and I am particularly looking forward to lots of snuggling!

    Truly stunning images of fabulously lustworthy knits! Having JUST welcomed our 3rd baby into this magical world, I’m so excited for you and all the wonderful changes that are upon your family! May the heroic hormones flow strong and long.

    These images are so beautiful. Thank you for sharing them!
    I found your blog through the road is home (I think), and I must say I feel a kinship with you and what you write about. I’m from Norway, I live on a farm with my three kids and husband, and a bunch of animals. We’re doing up the farm which has been unloved and desolate for a long time, so our life is all about that – loving our home and each other, trying to be self sufficient with the resources we have here (which of course is difficult with Norway’s short growing season). I am a film teacher of profession, in maternity leave right now, and I’m thinking a lot about how to not have to go back to work for somebody else, but to be my own boss and work creatively and independently. You are an inspiration!
    Love, Maria
