posieshoots My favourite capture of the formal . . . candid, fun & a little bit awkward. From college athletics Age Champion in the morning to being dolled up in heels by the evening . . . for an unfussy, non-princessy-type, she had poise & rocked her little 60's style frock. The cute waiter's jacket I purchased to complete the ensemble (which she initially poo poo'ed) was much appreciated as the temperature dropped to 2C during the night!! #onetomum #nextstophisformal #year10formal #fakespring #canberra #shewouldratherbeinrunningshorts 2h

posieshoots Our first child's school formal, done & dusted. While we didn't go down the spray tan, professional make up, up-do-hair, facial, leg wax & custom design dress path . . . she looked adorable, had a fun date & great night with her friends. She even said she'd wear her off-the-rack dress again!! #year10formal #corsage #flowers #easychild #notears #thenshesleptfor12hours 3d
  •   mealyandi Can't believe she's old enough for her first formal. Where are the years flying? 3d
  •   peasnbeans3 Yay for you ! Can't believe how crazy some can get over a smart dance. 3d
  •   posieshoots @peasnbeans3 it was very much pitched as a 'social' & the girls looked stunning. Very dapper boys too. Dates had to be school boys & show ID, really well run & care for our girls. @mealyandi yes!! She looked natural & age appropriate. Next stop - her date's formal, which is very black tie formal!! Such an exciting time. 2d
  •   tremainiac Priceless @posieshoots! 2d
  •   helloally2 The whole "spray tan, proff makeup, yada yada etc etc" road us quite the ridiculous thing....sooo glad ours chose to "showcase themselves" & we're proud of how they looked...they even look back in pics & comment on how great everything was without the high end fuss...:) 2d
  •   homelyoneamanda SO happy you went down the age appropriate path! Things are so over the top at some schools. 2d

posieshoots Our own personal quarry for road base, site levelling & young men to run amok. Currently it's a pond for new lambies to drink from & tadpoles to grow into froggies. #countrylife #canberra #bungendore #frontpaddock #quarry #funeverywhereyoulook #sandyloam #looksliketheredcentre #nottheoutback 1w
  •   e_a_munro Gorgeous colours!! 1w
  •   muddyfarmwife Just gorgeous!!! So MUCH Fun to be had in the great farm outdoors! 1w
  •   lizesmeatonfox How fabulous xx 1w
  •   morrison_polkinghorne I love the red 1w
  •   posieshoots @lizesmeatonfox truly, hours of fun in here!! They left it open until we finish all the excavating, then they'll cover it back in with the top soil. They were so neat & tidy about the whole process. @muddyfarmwife absolutely!! Imaginations run while & the challenge of collecting tadpoles on leaves. Shame tadpoles = frogs = snakes. Eeeep. @e_a_munro the sun was playing tricks & creating incredible layers of colour on the earth. It's a huge quarry (by my standards) as that boy is ten years old & looks like a dot!! 1w

posieshoots Gorgeous decor & friendly service @eightytwentyfood A hip new establishment to eat healthy & sip smoothies in Braddon. I mean, look at the outside!! I also want to steal their light fixtures. And stools. And tiles. Then their outdoor pots. #architecture #eightytwenty #healthy #lonsdalestreet #braddon #canberra #perfectlytimedcyclist 1w
  •   emikodavies Haven't been yet but you just reminded me to try this spot! 1w
  •   canberrabec Oooh I went there on Thursday for a breakfast work meeting with @themueslibar !! It was delish & Lisa & I did comment on their light fixtures!! 1w
  •   themueslibar @canberrabec haha I was literally just telling Mr Muesli Bar about those lights 1w
  •   posieshoots @themueslibar @canberrabec it's so gorgeous inside, how handy that I can covet their style as I design our homestead. @emikodavies such a great vibe at this place!! @mrsrubie Braddon is hip & happening now with amazing cafés, stores & a great brewery too. There are still bike shops & mechanics, squeezed in between the chic hipster joints. Oh & zillions of fabulously designed apartments. 1w
  •   posieshoots @cldeans I really can't wait to eat in, I was just getting my eldest a cold drink & bless them, they made me one free too!! @notes_from_monroe Floriade opened today - it would make your heart sing, all that colour in bloom. @sarahshanahan_lifestyle I took one snap then out the corner of my eye I saw the cyclist coming & managed to include him in the next photo. Then I realised my daughter had wandered off, horrified I was taking photos!! Oh & typical Canberra road with zero traffic. @carobachi ya, this is number 18, called 80/20, so I bet people get confused. It's the 80/20 health angle, clever. Easy to describe as 'next to the post office' or opposite Waves. Let's do this!! 1w
  •   posieshoots @eightytwentyfood cannot wait to come back!! 1w
  •   eightytwentyfood Thanks @posieshoots! Look forward to seeing you again x 1w

posieshoots Off to enjoy a morning with the fabulous @taniamccartney, Australian author & all round awesome human being. You absolutely must seek out her vast array of delightful children's books + sensible non-fiction & educational titles too. Hello Christmas gifts!! Just love a gal who has a European jet setting, cat walk modelling & flight attendant background . . . relishes motherhood, well being & kindness + a passion for writing, sharing stories with stunning illustrations . . . Tania throws amazing book launches & is self depreciating with excellent humour - I mean, look at that wig!! She had the children in the audience spellbound on Sunday at her Tottie & Dot event. #buylocal #australianauthor #tottieanddot #children #books #booklaunch 2w

  •   miradesigns Interesting shoot! Voluminous hair and burger. 2w
  •   posieshoots @miradesigns once my children hit high school I try not to post images of their faces. Little protection for their privacy. @winkspot you grab special time when you can single out a child in a big family. She brought the chips home to share with siblings. @tracyporter_poeticwanderlust that giant tooth pick is seriously holding everything together!! That's just the Simply Grill'd too - smallest healthy burger that make - stuffed with salad & a great rissole (meat party) just like home. 2w
  •   percivalroad Cute! ! 2w
  •   jennykaybs Grilled is soooooo good! Only place that make GF burgers! Yummo 2w
  •   grilldburgers Great snap! :) 2w
  •   sarahshanahan_lifestyle Lovely jennie x 2w
  •   austrahlee Great shot! 2w
  •   posieshoots @austrahlee sneaky way to not photograph her face. @sarahshanahan_lifestyle you know what it's like trying to divide your time between lots of children. So precious, grab it when you can. @grilldburgers thanks for making awesome burgers!! @jennykaybs they're delicious & so fresh!! @percivalroad so happy many more Grill'd restaurants are opening up, I've been a fan for a long time. I tried the pickled burger, oh gosh, yummy. 2w

  •   posieshoots @mysuburbanfarm I couldn't resist taking this photo. @lizesmeatonfox so excited to see so many brand new lambs every farm visit this week. @nefotlak pure beauty, baby animals. @robertaeaston most adorable subject to photograph. @percivalroad absolutely. Finding poddy lambs, I just have to give them 'a' chance. They generally thrive. 2w
  •   posieshoots @designdevotee @bowerbirdjo oozing sweetness, right down to his little pink nose. @mrsrubie the first poddy we took across the street for a retired grandma to raise, is already sleeping through the night. Success. @theoldfathen they are too adorable for words. 2w
  •   posieshoots @catleexox you should see me out on the farm, eyes like a hawk for white fluffiness. Saw my first mama-of-triplets on our farm today. Great work. @the_minor_key I have visions of a perfect green lawn & mega long family dining table outside, under the verandah, the type your husband would craft, enjoying a meal with baby lambs at our feet. They're just so totally adorable & friendly. @melli_f3 I have fallen in love, over & over, with darling new lambs this week. Heart bursting love for baby animals. @grett83 beyond fluffy adorable gorgeousness. 2w
  •   michelle.cann Oh he's sweet. He makes my little boy lamb look huge! 2w
  •   moxomandwhitney Love it x 2w
  •   austrahlee Oh what a cutie! 2w
  •   traveltherenext Adorable 2w
  •   posieshoots @traveltherenext @austrahlee @moxomandwhitney @michelle.cann we found another ram lamb needing some help, his mother violently rejected him, difficult to watch. Now he's with this little fellow, who has been named Charlie & is apparently a huge sook!! Adorable creatures needing a little human help. Snow Drop is absolutely thriving, sleeping through the night & very strong. So happy we intervened with these abandoned lambs. 1w

  •   posieshoots @alyssa_mcclelland you're just the loveliest. My Bella had a fantastic time + a trial run of her adorable year 10 formal dress. So grown up. Annoyingly her formal dress jackets (I've invested in a choice of two, a waiter style jacket in blush & a cute mini blazer in cream) will arrive tomorrow, to complete the formal outfit, too late for the wedding though. 3w
  •   posieshoots @lizesmeatonfox @kimpearsoninteriordesigner thanks ladies, who knew street lighting could project blossom to next level fabulous at night?? Wild night in, husband & eldest daughter at a wedding in Sydney. I booked a room at the InterCon as a treat (was meant to be me, alas, netball finals & team manager + coaching duty forced me to stay here) & Kim - asked my girl how she enjoyed the hotel . . . "I prefer the Shangri-la", ha!! 3w

X-Pro II posie shoots Jennie McClelland
posieshoots Twenty years ago today . . . I woke up, a giddy teenager, in love with the handsome soldier I spied at an Army Reserve weekend (exactly twenty years + week ago) . . . & we had just danced the night away at a Sydney Uni ball. I had an instant crush on him, I didn't even know his name & suffered a week of heart palpitations, hoping he'd be at the ball & single . . . he was (both)!! Twenty years ago tonight, was our first date. We discovered we both liked action movies & neither of us drank coffee. Oh & he told me he couldn't marry me as he wanted to have a son named Hamish (I had innocently mentioned it was my nephew Hamish's second birthday!!) We've visited 10 countries together; enrolled our children in 9 different schools; he's missed 8 of my birthdays; we've moved interstate 7 times; bought 6 different cars; he's deployed 5 times to war zones; we've raised up 4 gorgeous children; he's rolled his eyes at acquiring 3 alpacas; we've enjoyed 2 European honeymoons; & shared 1 dream: to settle on a farm!! We've come a long way & have really enjoyed Regular Army life. Our key: low drama, high adventure & absolutely zero pettiness, resentment or distrust crumbling away at us . . . + I still get butterflies when I know I'm going to see him. #anniversary #flowers #love @moxomandwhitney #ranunculus Happy 22nd birthday @hharon!! #whotalksbabynamesonafirstdate?? 4w
  •   penelopepitstop72 Congrats! I still get butterflies when I see my husband too...and I put lip gloss on the other day when I heard his car pull up...but pretended I didn't 16 years for us. It's all about compromise and not sweating the small stuff. 4w
