Editors Notice Board



Hello and welcome to September 2013. September is the first month of Spring, it really is such a beautiful season. After a long cold winter you can always tell when spring is around the corner, you start seeing blossoms blooming. What a magical time of the year. I really love September because we celebrate Fathers Day. Happy Fathers Day to all the Husbands, Fathers and Grandfathers, we don't know what we would do without you. I hope you all enjoyed this special day. When you're a parent, every time your child reaches a milestone you want to capture these special moments. By using a professional photographer you will capture these special memories. A few suggestions are Photos By Vicky Leon and Fiona Huber Photography, both photographers are local and will provide you with a CD. School holidays are approaching at the end of this month, if you are like me you are trying to think of how you can make the school break fun for yourself and the children. Maybe these ideas will help - Nexus Fitness is offering a great program for your children or pay a visit to Bulleen Plaza where the kids can be entertained by MR BISCUIT, a fabulous magician. Why not do both! Also a great time to take your children out for lunch or dinner. “Kids Eat Free� at the Doncaster Hotel, Cherry Hill Tavern and The Templestowe Hotel. See ads for details. We often overlook the importance of proper rest and relaxation. It is time to reconnect with your partner and families by taking a holiday. Escape Travel is offering 6 months interest free holiday finance on page 9. I hope you all have a great month, enjoy reading our September issue.

To look at your child as they smile, to see the innocence in their expression and to feel their joy as they discover something new, is without question one of life's most precious joys. To capture these moments in photographs is something child photographer Vicky Leon of Lower Templestowe never takes for granted. Vicky says "I feel privileged to be able to provide families with images and memories that will never be repeated. Their children will never be this age again and I feel blessed that I helped preserve this time in photographs.� Vicky Leon is exclusively a baby, child and family photographer and as a mum herself, has a natural ability to capture the real essence of each child. She says "Allowing the child to be themselves is important. I try not to control the photo-shoot, but rather allow children to wander around and explore the environment like I am not there. Children have so many beautiful emotions to photograph - happiness, laughter, tears and tantrums sometimes expressing them all within moments of each other. If you allow children the freedom to be themselves, these emotions come naturally. And to capture these emotions in a photograph is priceless." Vicky comes to your home or a chosen location where your child and family can be photographed in meaningful and comfortable surroundings. She provides your photos on CD from which you have full copyright and can print and use them as you wish.
