Dando Photography - Albert Percy

Hello friends, I have been itching to share this blog post with you for so very long! 

Back in September we welcomed our first baby Albert Percy into the world. The time has simply flown by in a beautiful, crazy blur ever since then. The days and the nights roll into a surreal mixture of love, joy and also the scary dauntingness of raising this tiny little creature. He is growing faster then we can keep up, and I am so beyond in awe at how fast this time has gone.

Whilst pregnant it was one of those things in the back of my mind, that we should probably think about newborn photography. But as the months rolled by, and everything else which is crazy hectic in the lead up to his arrival, it was one of those things which just got pushed to the back of my mind. But as soon as his tiny littleness entered this world, I wanted nothing more then to capture these fleeting moments forever. And I am so beyond glad, that in stepped Erin of Dando Photography.

Having known each other from back in our Brisbane days, we are now both New South Walers, with Erin slightly further south from us, down in Canberra. Once our little man was in the world, Erin so kindly offered to drive up to us in Bowral, here in the Southern Highlands, to capture his tininess for us. I cannot tell you how thankful, and in awe, of this beautiful girl I am.

I could tell you a hundred lovely things about the day that Erin came to visit, but hopefully these photos can tell the story better then I can. 

Introducing Albert Percy - aged 16 days old.

Some very special Christmas cards...

 Have yourself a merry little Christmas card available here.

Wishing you a very merry Christmas card available here.

This Christmas we wanted to design and letterpress print some truly special cards - something which you would send to your nearest and dearest, to someone you know who would truly appreciate some beautiful Christmas joy in the mail.

So we designed two stunning square Christmas cards which feature beautiful hand lettering and hand drawn illustrations which were printed using a combination of hot foil and letterpress on our 100% cotton paper in a larger square format!

These two very special cards were a complete joy to design and print and we hope that you love them as much as we do!

Both cards are priced at $8.25, so slightly higher then our other regular sized Christmas cards, but we hope you will think they are worth just that little bit extra. Available now in our Christmas section of our online shop. Happy shopping! x

Country Style Magazine Feature

Earlier this year it was a dream come true to have the Country Style Magazine team in our new country Bowral studio - shooting and interviewing us for their wedding special in their June 2013 publication!

Hopefully better late then never, A big thank you to Country Style for your gorgeous story and photos - it was such a delight to have you in the studio, and such a joy to be featured in your beautiful magazine! 

Moving our studio to the country earlier this year, was such a big and scary move for us - but it was most certainly one of those "pinch me" moments, with a fair amount of girly squealing to see us featured on our all time favourite country living magazine!

Special thanks to Catherine who wrote the story and Corrie who did the photography. You can read the story online here.
