Great to hand out as promo freebies
I can see these being a good, affordable way to present a small promo portfolio that can be handed out to potential clients, or even family and friends. 
$3 - 20 pages
$6 - 40 pages

FYI - I am not related in anyway to this personally (family or friend). I know about the business through an external work colleague. I've never used the service. I have simply been told about it and saw the promo on their site.

I don’t shoot weddings, in fact I don’t really shoot for anyone! I shoot for me. What I like, when I like, where I like. If I have an off day then ~shrug~ it happens. No one else suffers for my bad day...

Someone new to G+
+Ed Norton is new to Google Plus, with only 96 followers, I think his work is being lost in the noise. He hasn't got a lot on his timeline yet, but what is there is simply beautiful. Check him out, I think you'll find his images will be a positive addition to your stream. #loveyourwork  
I've just joined google + so follow (is that even the right word??) me here if you like travel, photography and the 2 combined! :D

Keeping my inner calm ✣
"Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset." -- Saint Francis de Sales
Life can be ever so chaotic, especially around the holiday times. Everyone seems to need everything before the break. I'm going with the flow though. Staying happy la la, prioritising people over panic, and turning the negative to positive. There's no point wasting energy on the doom and gloom, or the haters and fighters. Nope, it's all smiles for this chickadee. ツ

No more cry
════ .❂. ════
I'm smiling for you only
I'm trying for you solely
I'm praying for you only
No more cry
Stole the daylight, brought the night
Shine some light out from the mud
A brighter day a better time
And all I have give to you
To let you know you're not alone
- The Corrs, No More Cry

I don’t shoot weddings, in fact I don’t really shoot for anyone! I shoot for me. What I like, when I like, where I like. If I have an off day then ~shrug~ it happens. No one else suffers for my bad day.

All that changed when my brother and his (then) fiancé approached me one fine morning over brunch and asked if I would do them the honour of capturing their wedding day. Not my other brother (I have four brothers), the professional super photographer of the family. No, they wanted me. They had seen my work pop up in their Facebook streams and various other places, and liked my creative perspective. They enjoyed way I captured people and their story in my images. They felt that through my relationship with them both, I would be able to capture the emotion and atmosphere of their special day.

I was truly flattered and couldn’t have been more honoured to have been asked to be involved. I was also sh*t scared! I’d never done anything like this before. I had no idea what I was doing. Could I do their day justice? What if I had one of those aforementioned off days? I could never show my face at a family gathering again if I messed this up. In spite of my self doubt though, I was determined to do my best

The day was truly beautiful; Sam looked stunning, Joel so handsome. The cars were shiny and the bridal party ever so swish. True to Joel and Sam’s style, the ceremony was personal and unique to them. I hope that my images show the love and commitment that Joel and Sam have for each other. I wish them nothing but the absolute brightest future on their path together.

☁ ☂ Colour on a grey day ☼

"If you change the way you tell your own story, you can change the colour and create a life in technicolour." -- Isabel Allende
It's a grey wet day once again in Melbourne. Last week's few days of heat seem to have been the last push by Summer to try and draw out the sunshine. It may be dim and dull outside, but it's as bright and cheery inside my head as it ever has been. Don't let the rain wash away your colour. Fight it back with laughter.

Take me down to the ocean
"Take me down to the ocean
Take me down to the sea
Set the feeling in motion
Forget the tied up time and let my spirit free
So you can just be you and I can just be me"
-- Elton John (Take me down to the ocean)

I've had such a wonderful Sunday, and all because of the people who have been in it. Two very special people to me have graced me with their laughter and life. I couldn't be more lucky. ღ

I too miss the ocean when I am away for too long. It gets into our blood I think. We need it. 😊

Why 'Lady'?
It's a formal title. The actual, full title is:
Lady of Kingsdale, Sanday, Scotland
No need for the airs and graces though. =)

Circles I may fit in:
Θ Android
Θ Gadgets
Θ Tech
Θ Mobile/Cell phones & Tablets
Θ Doctor Who & Torchwood
Θ Politics - Leftie pinko commie tendancies
Θ Humour - Monty Python, UK comedy etc
Θ Photography

Circles best avoided:
◘ Sporting teams
◘ Republicans
◘ Anything fundamentalist

I was born and raised a Catholic. I have my own kind of faith that doesn't involve going to mass on Sundays. In my opinion, everything in moderation, extremism tends to be destructive. If you have a chip on your shoulder about your atheism or you're wanting to share evangelical hoohar then best leave me out of those circles. :) 

Born and bred:
I was born and bred in Australia. A country of which I am immensely proud.I grew up in the small community of Bells Beach (yes, that Bells Beach, the real one, not the Point Break version) and now live, work and play in Melbourne. Having grown up around the beach I feel the draw of the ocean if ever I am far away for a long period of time. The beach on a grey day is one of my favorite places. 

I am the eldest of five siblings, all boys except me. I bear the scars of a childhood of tree houses, billy carts and bikes. I love my family and am lucky enough to have a strong relationship with them all. I am immensely proud of their achievements, and their passion to follow their own paths. A rarity these days, my parents are still married and their relationship of 40 years is nothing short of admirable. ♥

My philosophy is simple; if you can't laugh at yourself then you are bound to never really enjoy life. The world is full of the funny and the quirky. Enjoy it!

Fabulous salon. I've had my hair done there several times now and they get it right every time. Good advice, very knowledgeable, and keep a record of what I have done so I don't have to remember next time. Also great relaxing facials and a variety of other services. Pricing is competitive, and undercuts (pun intended) other places I've researched and/or been too. Very happy. I will continue to return to Rubelle.

Really impressed. Dropped a particularly large piece off for framing. I received great service and advice regarding possible options and accommodating my budget. The recommended presentation turned out to be ideal. Very pleased. Beneath the framers is a lovely gallery as well. Browsing through there on the way up the stairs could be dangerous. So many beautiful and tempting pieces.

Great food, attentive and pleasant service, and a good venue. Deserted the custom. Other businesses in town could learn from this place.

A nice spot by the lake with a great outside deck area. Ideal for sunny days. Awnings can be pulled down for the cooler days. Food is reasonable and the service friendly. The tapas platter is a great share for two. Good range of coffees. Often open when other places are shut. Thumbs up.

A fun way to see the bay. Great for kids of all ages, from the littlies to the grown up kids. Looks fantastic at night. Be sure to catch the lights.

A great range of handcrafted beers and ciders. I was also delighted to find that they had homemade cordials and provided a list for children to choose from. My ten year old niece was over the moon to be able to receive a tasting 'plank' and join the fun with the adults. The venue is large with a great open deck. Fabulous for warmer months. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, and the menu tasty.
