Fairytales – The Blog

The sun is out, term 3 school holidays have been and gone and the silly season is just around the corner.  You are marvelling at how the year is flying and how cute (and big) the kids look in swimming gear and summer clothes.   I know that I am soon to be marvelling at my Miss 4 off to Big School Orientation! Of course this highly likely means that you, like me, have been becoming increasingly snap happy taking photos on various devices. Today we wanted to give you 10 tips to help avoid those photos stacking up as the year sprints to an end.

No one likes to think about death but you know the saying ...
"in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes" - Benjamin Franklin

With that certainty in mind, those of us who want to ensure handling our estate after we die is as simple as possible for our loved ones take measures to prepare and plan.  We make wills and possibly financial plans for our funerals. But what about your photos?

I used to hate the standard socialising question "so, what do you do?" I hated that people might define me by the work I did and they would 'put me in a box' based on my profession.  I also felt it was a lazy question given that it was likely they didn't really care what I did and also I felt there was a lot more interesting things about me above and beyond what I did every day at work. Now days attending lots of business networking events, it is the primary question I hear and I love to answer it.  One thing that always piques people's interest is telling them I am in the Storytelling Business and Australia's First Certified Photo Organiser.

If you were to ask yourself what would the majority of people's favourite photos be?  Weddings?  Babies? We would agree.  We also believe that most often their favourite would be the ones taken by professionals. For those that haven't been married or had children there are still plenty of opportunities to have professional photos in your life.  With websites and social media it is important to have great profile images.  Family portraits with your siblings are firm favourites with parents and grandparents and then there is my other favourite photos, PETS!  We think that at some point in your life everyone should have some amazing professional images taken. Today we (TFF) are asking Mandy from Bless this Photography (BTP) some questions about how to prepare for a professional photo shoot for you and your PET.
