A celebration on the farm for Jeanette and her family

A Boxing Day and belated Birthday celebration for Jeanette and her family was lots of fun !!

“My mum, Jeanette, recently had a birthday and I wanted to get her something that was memorable and special………. instead of the standard soppy card and tragic slippers!!
I racked my brain and thought that since all of her offspring were around for Christmas it would be nice to organise a family photography session. 

Mum & Dad have lived in Strathmerton for around 35yrs. They are on some acreage just out of town where they raised myself and my 3 brothers. For as long as I can remember…… and probably as long as mum can remember…. one of mums greatest loves/passions has been horses. She breeds them, breaks them in, rides them, competes with them, gives riding lessons etc etc She can often been found outside doing something “horsey”……….usually with pieces of hay in her hair!!!

Another of mum’s great loves is her garden which is filled with Native Australian plants. At one stage many years ago she even had a nursery at home…….I recall as a child getting pocket money for filling endless amounts of pots for mum to put the seedlings she’d propagated into. Mum’s garden is beautiful!! She loves to give people a tour of it and bamboozle you with full botanical names of all the plants.

We love to catch up as a family.  Mum & Dad have 4 kids (3 boys & 1 girl), 3 daughter in laws, 1 son in law, 8 grandchildren with 1 on the way………so when we catch up it is chaotic & noisy with a fair amount of heckling & pot stirring……..but I wouldn’t have it any other way!” 

“Liz came highly recommended and luckily she was available for us on Boxing day. I certainly take my hat off to Liz….don’t they say you should never work with children or animals??? Well she definitely had her work cut out with 10 adults, 8 kids (aged 3-8yrs), a couple of dogs, heaps of horses and a bazillion flies!!! Liz’s passion and dedication was very apparent. She made everyone feel very much at ease.”


We took a wander in the paddock where this couple met picking – fast forward to now and they are expecting their first child
