Memories Dreams and Reflections!

Ashley from Ramblings and Photos has encouraged us to take a walk down memory lane and share our favourite moments from 2010. She's given us a list of 25 prompts to choose our photographs for, so without further ado, here is my 2010 :)
Oh and I only got my "big girl" camera a few months ago so some are with my point and shoot but I loves them anyways =D

1. ME!

Yep, this is me :D I took this photo for Scavenger Hunt Sunday one week :)

2. I Love You

One half of my family :) I love my boys <3

3. Still Laughing...

It was so funny when this moth crawled into Charlotte's mouth!!
If you want to see the rest of this series, go HERE

4. Winter Wonderland

It doesn't get very Wintery around here...its a 7 hour drive to the snow and you pretty much have to sell a kidney to afford to go! So I've gone with this photo of the first time Charlotte went ice skating :) The ice rink here has a preschoolers session every Wednesday and Thursday morning where they learn to skate and have 'snow play'. Very cute!

5. Birthday

I can't believe my baby girl is now a 4 year old!! It was her birthday just before Christmas and we celebrated at the Opera House and Sydney Harbour :)

6. Friends

This is my little girl and her friend Cooper :) They were actually walking down our driveway...but this looks much better, don't you think? LOL!

7. I Was Inspired

When I got photoshop at the beginning of the year, I was inspired to start making these fantasy type photo's of my kiddlets :D Haven't done one in months though :/

For more pictures like these and the 'before' shots click on the Fantasy Photo's tab up the top :D

8. Spring Fever

Pretty spring lavender :)

9. Travel/Vacation

This was on our family holiday to Bateman's Bay back in March :) We were lucky enough to be allowed into the koala enclosure for some hands on action =D We also held a wombat and hubby and Charlotte held a snake *shudder*

10. Summer Days

My baby girl about to go swimming in Grandma and Grandpa's pool :D

11. A Day In My Life

A typical day in my life usually involves some sort of messy activity that I have to clean up after, lol

12. All Smiles

This kid has the best smile!! A real cheesy grin, lol. 
I was also lucky enough to have this photo featured on The Pioneer Woman's Blog =O Definitely one of the high points of my photography journey so far!

13. Autumn Harvest

My little man playing in the Autumn leaves :)
(So sad that that Australian Wallabies tracksuit won't fit him anymore :( I'm going to put it on a teddy bear for him though, lol)
14. Family

Ok, so I didn't take this one, my brother did, lol. But this is my little family :)

15. Celebrate!

New Years fireworks 2010 on the waterfront :)

16. Lets Do It Again

I'd love to take my little family back to Dizzyland soon, Charlotte loved it and William will be able to go on a couple of rides now too :)

17. I Miss You

This was taken back in February, he's changed so much since then! I miss my little baby!!

18. Beautiful

My beautiful girl :)

19. Dress Up

William was Super Baby for Halloween!

20. Macro

Not a real macro, but I love this close up bubble picture!

21. Holidays

Certainly not one of my best photo's but I love it :) All Charlotte wanted from Santa was a Fireman Sam dvd, she LOVES Fireman Sam, lol, so I was so excited to find this Fireman Sam doll on Ebay to surprise her with! He hasn't left her side since Christmas morning :)

22. My Favourite

My favourite photograph of Charlotte for the year, she looks like Goldilocks :)
For the rest of this photo shoot go HERE
23. Don't Ever Change

I wish my little man would stay this way forever, with those little bunny rabbit teeth!
And for the rest of this shoot look HERE
24. Just Because...So There!

Just because I really like how this turned out haha :P

25. Hopes and Dreams

I hope in 2011 I can take the time to learn how to take better photo's, especially with my new 50mm f1.8, I love it already! And I hope that I do an awesome job at the two weddings I have lined up in the next few months, eek!

I really enjoyed the walk down memory lane and I encourage you to join in too!

HAPPY 2011!!

Great shots. I love the round photo you did in photoshop as well as the fantasy pictures. I need to learn more about my photoshop. That's above my basic knowledge!

I love pretty much every single one of these photos!! The "Smile" made me scrunch up my face and smile along with him --too adorable! I also love what you did for the Friends shot.

Oh Still Laughing is stinkin ADORABLE and the Macro is awesome... Your spring fever is also great but I've gotta say those 'fantasy' photos you did are SOO GREAT! I love them! Hope your 2011 is great!

I love your picture for beautiful.

Beautiful photos! Your kids are gorgeous!

1. The moth picture is really really gross. Funny gross, but it still makes me shiver.
2. The "beautiful" shot is my fave. I love the cross processing you did ( if that's what you did, and not just color temp)
3. Dress up- that looks just way cool with the costume and the palms in the background. Instantly reminded me of the island on Lost
4. My 50mm is the go to lens for me. It's tough to focus ( especially when I am shooting selfies) but it's by far the best. The trick I found out is to set it to f/2.0 or f/2.2- the focus seems a bit sharper than way, though Honestly I always go for 1.8 anyways, because i adore low aperature photography.
