Wise old Bear – Winnie the Pooh

 

Winnie-the-Pooh had many wonderful things to say about love, acceptance, and being kind to others. And who wouldn’t like more of that, both at work and at home?

 

Here are some of my favourite quotes:

“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.”

“Love is taking a few steps backward, maybe even more…to give way to the happiness of the person you love.”

“A little consideration, a little thought for others, makes all the difference.”

“Some people care too much. I think it’s called love.”

“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like ‘what about lunch?”

“If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever.”

“I think we dream so we don’t have to be apart for so long. If we’re in each other’s dreams, we can be together all the time.”

“A day without a friend is like a pot without a single drop of honey left inside.”

“Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything there is to be known.”

“One of the advantages of being disorganised is that one is always having surprising discoveries.”

“How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”

“Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.”

“If the person you are talking to doesn’t appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear.”

“You’re braver than you believe and stronger and smarter than you think.”

“You can’t stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.”

“It never hurts to keep looking for sunshine.”

“A day spent with you is my favourite day. So today is my new favourite day.”

Galleries

Galleries are electronically sent via a third party file handler. A download link is then supplied by the file handler to recipient’s email within a hour of me completing the upload.

Aside from the odd email ending in someone’s spam/junk folders it appeared to be a great service to use. However it’s sadly come to my attention that some links never made it to the recipient’s mailbox at all. If you had your session pre-Oct’18 and do not have your gallery please contact me directly as soon as possible.

info@melissasheedphotography.com.au

 

To help enable me to get these links to your mailbox please follow the below help guides found on the wetransfer website.

https://wetransfer.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/categories/201255686-Troubleshooting

https://wetransfer.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/204909429-Adding-WeTransfer-to-your-trusted-contacts

 

Key things to check

  • Port blocks will prevent the email reaching you. Ports 80 and 443 should be open by default but if you have set up a home network and were put on CGNAT by your internet provider last year this may cause unstable connections to the file handling service.

 

  • Anti-virus software and Firewalls please whitelist the following domains: *.wetransfer.com, *.we.tl, *.amazonaws.com and *.wetransfer.net. This may need to be directly in your browser settings and also if you run any additional software like Little Snitch, Barracuda or McAfee. Windows XP has a built in firewall so you’ll need to check there also.

 

  • The file handler uses an “noreply@” email address which in some email handlers is automatically blacklisted – adding their email ‘noreply@wetransfer.com’ as a trusted contact will help to whitelist any email from that address. Outlook, Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo must not only whitelist this email but add as a contact to their trusted senders.

 

  • Your email account is on a Chinese domain or you/loved one are trying to access from China. Wetransfer along with all third party file transfer services are blocked by the Chinese Gov.

 

 

 

I am doing my best to get galleries reloaded, new transfers are being sent via a monitored account which enables me to follow clicks/downloads.

Studio Announcement | Session Availability

***2018 STRICTLY LIMITED***

Due to the long list of ongoing health issues I have been experiencing and the additional negative affects it’s having on my ability to meet gallery turnaround times and maintain client satisfaction, sessions offered for the remainder of this year have been completely restricted.

Cake Smash sessions not affected by gallery delays due to batch edited gallery.

 

 

Thyroid disease – early Hashimotos causing both Hyperthyroidism and Hypothryroidism, Sjögren syndrome, Pyroluria (Pyrrole Disorder), MTHFR, Autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (also known as Shoenfeld’s syndrome or ASIA), Heavy metal poisoning up to x10 higher the Toxic levels of ARSENIC, TIN, CHROMIUM, LEAD, MERCURY, SULPHUR, MOLYBDENUM, Ca/Pb, Se/Hg, Zn/Cd, Zn/Cd, Zn/Hg, S/Hg and S/Cd, Skin cancer and Cysts on my ovaries have all been but a few of the health struggles I have been dealing with over the last few months. With many ups and downs (sadly more downs than ups), whilst working through each additional medical diagnosis. It seems the root cause is my breast implants which I got in July 2016, I’ve been told by my Endocrinologist and Naturopath they need to be removed as they are poisoning my body. It was hard to believe at first but then the media suddenly seems to be full of recent stories surrounding my particular style of implant and the company who manufactures them. I’ve joined a support group with over 50,000 members all with terrible health conditions like my own. I’m only able to take small steps at a time until I have these toxic bags removed. Bookings have been taken at a bare minimum since late last year whilst my health continues to remain my focus. I am blessed with the continued support of my amazing clients who have been there through it all, including regretfully enduring long waits for their retouched galleries ☹️ Thankful to finally have an answer after literally months of ultrasounds, blood/urine/hair follicle tests and living through what seems like an alternate life from the one where I was never ever sick. Next step is surgery to get these deathly things out!

Newborn-Photographer-Perth-Baby-Photos-October

It’s been a while since I updated so here are the sneak peek images from newborn-photographer-perth-baby-photos-october

So many babies, so many bellies, and so many super adorable cake smashes!

We spent time at the Raeburn orchards during Autumn. And back again for the blooming of the fruit trees for the Cherry Blossom sessions.

Too many previews to add…. so here is just a few

I will save some Newborn-Photographer-Perth-Baby-Photos-October for another post.

🙂

Just a general note: All bookings must go through the website contact form to ensure I receive them.

The server stores a copy so if it does not reach my mailbox I can access it here. Whilst I do have a listed mobile number it is reserved for my Birth clients only. My phone will filter any number not in my contacts, and whilst text messages may appear sent on your end I do not actually receive them. I’m sorry if this is an inconvenience for some, it was essential for me to keep my sanity! To have all communication in one place, so I can ensure I am able to offer the best service to everyone.

Newborn sessions are now closed for the rest of 2017. Last minute bookings may be available should a booked client be overdue/have baby early so this can leave the odd availability, a wait list has been set for clients wishing to go on it.

What a handsome wee fella this little man is, a splitting image of his Daddy.

He liked to frown a lot during his session with me, which made for some great close up shots of that wrinkled forehead.

More images to come but for now here is a fav from his gallery.

Perth Family Photographer Newborn | It’s a girl!

Perth Family Photographer Newborn

 As a Perth Family Photographer newborn, you are often challenged at sessions to get the “sibling shot”.

Whilst as simple as it sounds it really does come as one of “the.most.challenging.shots.ever”…. especially in the midst of a newborn session which is already challenging enough on it’s own.

Now lucky for me I have photographed this family a number of times before. I photographed the two youngest maternity and newborn sessions, so the big guy is used to my crazy face and just thinks I’m the bees knees. These boys were awesome and happily worked for stickers and lots of cuddles!

When you have cuteness x3 it’s not surprising this shot was one of many which made the final gallery.

An early Mother’s Day sneak peek for Mum 😉

More shots to add later – stay tuned!

Baby Photography Perth | Little Butterfly

As a leading specialist in Baby Photography Perth I see the most adorable babies. This little blessing with her rosy red lips and thick rich head of hair was enough to set anyone’s ovaries on overdrive. Cluck cluck!

She slept her entire session without a peep, we even had three Grandparents with her family portraits and two outfit changes from Mum and Dad.

One special little lady and a rainbow butterfly request from Mum.

Way too many images in the gallery I really don’t know how I’m going to get though them all!!

Cake Smash Sessions Perth Photographer

Cake Smash sessions Perth Photographer

I absolutely LOVE photographing this age! I especially love watching how they discover, react and are allowed to experience 100% free rein on a food which many have never touched nor tasted before. They all will often sit there at first then glace up to Mum and Dad as if seeking approval or reassurance that yes it is okay to touch this delicious item.. next comes a cheeky rascally smile and it’s all hands in!
Mast ‘I’ was quite content to initially just sit there with the frosting.. playing with it in his hands… poking his fingertips in and then rubbing the frosting though the floor with his hands. He did think we ‘broke’ his cupcake when the top came off but after tasting some of that yummy moist cake he didn’t care much for the frosting and instead was right into crawling over, sitting on and pulling apart it’s base ha!!!

It doesn’t get much better than a super adorable, happy little cake-eating Indian Chief for his cake smash.

He had such a ball!

Going from balloons, to frosting, to chewing on the wooden spoon, then back to the frosting, balloons, more frosting and more wooden spoon chomping… ha!! and so it went ha! I took waaaaaaaaaay too many images but with cuteness overload and the fact he was having an awesome time made it very easy to get to whooping 140 images in his final gallery – and that was after culling it down! 🙊🙈

How adorable is this outfit, esp the headdress which Mum brought with her! Loving it! And even better was Mr ‘I’ did not even try to remove it at all!

Mother

______________________________________________________________________________

Before I was a Mom
I made and ate hot meals.
I had unstained clothing.
I had quiet conversations on the phone.

Before I was a Mum,
I slept as late as I wanted
And never worried about how late I got into bed.
I brushed my hair and my teeth everyday.

Before I was Mum
I cleaned my house each day.
I never tripped over toys or forgot words of lullabies.

Before I was a Mum
I didn’t worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunisations.

Before I was a Mum
I had never been puked on
Pooped on
Spit on
Chewed on
Peed on
Or pinched by tiny fingers

Before I was a Mum
I had complete control of:
My thoughts
My body
And my mind.
I slept all night.

Before I was a Mum
I never held down a screaming child
So that doctors could do tests
Or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mum
I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn’t want to put it down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces
When I couldn’t stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small
Could affect my life so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mum.

Before I was a Mum
I didn’t know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.
I didn’t know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.
I didn’t know that bond between a Mother and her child.
I didn’t know that something so small
Could make me feel so important.

Before I was a Mum
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay
I had never known the warmth
The joy
The love
The heartache
The wonder
Or the satisfaction of being a Mum.

I didn’t know I was capable of feeling so much before I was a Mum.

A Daughter!

Maternity Newborn Photographer Perth

___________________________________________________________________________________________

A Daughter….

is someone who fills your days with joy.

She is someone who

changes your life from the moment

she becomes a part of it…

and then makes you wonder

how you ever lived without her.

___________________________________________________________________________________________

I first met this family just over 5 years ago when I was beginning my photography career. I photographed their first born son and I remember it like it was yesterday. Since then and a few more photography sessions in between (cake smashes and Christmas mini sessions) we have been friends ever since! During the time I’ve known her I’ve learned her LOVE for wearing floral crowns, and wish for people to be empowered and strong. Be it same sex equality or for women the right to have the labour they desire… it’s no surprise that she then completed her dream of being a Midwife! Chances are if you have a bubbly, forever smiling, (gorgeous) blonde-haired beauty as your midwife then chances are it is her 😀 and guaranteed you’re going to be in the best hands possible!

It was so lovely to photograph you all once again, and congratulations on delivering the sweetest daughter ever (of course whilst ‘accidentally’ wearing a gorgeous floral crown 😉 ).

Here is a special requested design for their newborn gallery. Stay tuned for more to come – and yup there will be plenty of flower headbands just for Mum!

Amazing Baby Portraits | Newborn Photographer Perth

Newborn Photographer Perth

So I posted a link to a finished Newborn Photographer Perth baby gallery with Melissa Sheed Photography.

I think it’s nice to occasionally share a full newborn session, so clients have an understanding of what their gallery may look like. Each gallery is unique so the number of images in the final gallery can be less or sometimes much higher (like one I’m currently retouching)! It really does depend on the baby on the day and how well Mum and Dad follow my client prep-guide, and if baby isn’t experiencing any tummy upset/colic/constipation etc.

If I have a newborn session with you what will me gallery look like?
