How gorgeous is this little darling! Our children grow incredibly fast which makes photos like these so special and something to treasure for a lifetime. Visit my website or send me a message to find out how I can help capture precious moments like these for your family. 

Would love to know: Who else has over 1000 photos on their camera reel since having kids? πŸ™ˆπŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ
⭐ Transformation Tuesdays ⭐

For six years now I have been practising fine art photography. Fine art photography is taking an ordinary image and making it extraordinary. A statement piece to hang on your wall that will not only capture a memory of the subject, but paint an entirely new picture and vision. Fine art photography can allow you to be placed in fantastical surroundings and escape reality. Every picture can be turned into a truly unique art piece and the possibilities are limitless! I am so excited to be able to release fine art packages in the near future. So keep your eyes peeled and feel free to message with any questions you may have about it. For now, enjoy β€˜Transformation Tuesdays’ where I will be showing you some before and after photos! So make sure you swipe across to see what we started with! 

If you could photoshop yourself anywhere, where would it be? πŸ“Έ

Happy Sunday! I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend. Yesterday I was out taking family photos for a dear friend and today I cleaned up after our chickens who have made quite the mess. πŸ˜…

What have you all been up to over the weekend? 

Also how precious is this sweet girl from one of my newborn shoots ❀️

There is something truly special about the bond between siblings. One minute they can be fighting over who gets the red plate at dinner time, the next they can be working together to vanquish pirates in their makeshift boat. Despite the arguments, siblings are always there for each other; and, as parents it always makes your heart swell when you witness the tender moments they share. That is why captures such as this one are so precious. You can get snapshots of these special moments through both our newborn and family packages that are tailored to suit every families needs. You can view a range of packages on my website, or get in contact to discuss your options. 

Would love to know what is a favourite childhood memory you treasuer with your siblings? ❀️

How precious is this sweet little prince. πŸ‘‘ 
As a new parent there are so many special moments you wish you could 'freeze'. Newborns have this amazing tendancy to grow in a blink of an eye, and those days of sleepy snuggles quickly pass by. That is why I believe newborn photography is so special. It is the opportunity to capture these precious, yet fleeting moments to treasure for a lifetime. 
Here at Virtual Memories Photography, I have three newborn packages available to help you capture and display this incredibly special time in your lives. You can view these packages on our website or contact me if you have any questions about how I can help capture this beautiful time. 

What is one moment you wish you could 'freeze' from your child's life? ❀️
Merry Christmas from my family to yours.
It's been a while!!

Catching up on editing, finalizing new packages and getting what family time I can in between!

How have you guys been?
Good morning!! I've been a bit quiet on social media, but I'm busy working on things behind the scenes. Including new packages and exciting mini sessions for sitters!

Going into Christmas I have THREE weekend sessions left for the rest of the year, so if you need a weekend I'd book that in now. The good news is that I have Wednesday and Friday evenings available as late as 6pm! Gorgeous afternoon light is always preferred anyway.
Tomorrow is the day of the give away... There will be two. 

One on Facebook to win a brand new photographic package I'll be offering in the next few months 

AND

One on Instagram that will be open to anyone, anywhere for a personalised composite image where I give you direction on how to take a photo of your child/children/pet and I put it all together with digital elements to make an art piece for your home.

Tag someone who might be interested!
I'm only 17 people off 10K on Facebook! (Search Virtual Memories Photography on Facebook) I'm going to be giving away a new package that hasn't been released yet... I also reached 1k on Instagram so look out for a competition on Instagram in the next week :)
Only 30 likes to go until I've got 10K on Facebook! How exciting!!

I'll be getting to any messages tomorrow, so if you're waiting I'll replying soon!

What did you guys get up to on the weekend?
Happy Father's Day to all the dads, soon-to-be dads, bonus dads, grandads, single parents, families and father figures out there.
I hope this day is a special one celebrating the important people in your lives
Did you hear?? I'm planning a give away once I reach 10K on my Facebook page! AND I'M ONLY 53 AWAY!

I might even do a second giveaway on Instagram if I can reach 1k... Could you please share in your stories? Tag a friend? Make a comment? I'd be very grateful
So I'm hoping I can reach 10k on the Facebook page and when I do i'll be doing a GIVEAWAY for one of my new packages in the works!!
I would love it if you tagged and shared with your friends to help me get to 10K faster then it'll be giveaway time!
I've finally replied to most of my PMs on Facebook which was no small feat after being locked out for so long!

I'm thinking about running a small competition to get back into things, who would be keen?
PMs are FIXED! I can see messages! I'll be getting through the back log this week so if you need a reply and haven't received one by Friday please send me a little reminder.

Thanks for the patience! I've been quite frustrated so I can imagine how you guys have felt!
- Nikki :)
I'm still having issues with my FACEBOOK messages but I've heard back from support (finally) and hope the issue will be fixed this week. Until then if you could please direct all enquiries to email nikki@virtualmemories.com.au or DM to Instagram ( www.instagram.com/virtualmemoriestog ) or if it's urgent please text me on 0433519177

Thank you for your patience! Hopefully it'll go back to normal soon! And I'm sorry if I've missed your messages on Facebook

I'M BACK!

With all the uncertainty the last few months I had to make the decision to step back from my photography social media because mentally I wasn't coping.

Now restrictions have eased some what I feel confident to start booking sessions again. So, from now I'll be booking for July- December 2020. I will not be going ahead with the intended package changes for 2020, so will be keeping the 2019 packages for the rest of the year.

Of course we aren't out of the woods yet, so extra cleaning and sanitizing precautions are in place and I would ask that only IMMEDIATE family attend sessions to minimise any potential exposure.

I will reply to the messages I've received over the next week and thank you again for being as patient as you've been with me for what feels like this whole year. -

Hello everyone, I've been MIA with all the C- word stuff. I needed to take a break for my mental health.
Β°
I realise I have a comp open without a winner, I'll draw and announce on Friday :) I'll also reply to any PM's then too.
Β°
I hope you're all doing well and coping with all the restrictions right now.
I'd love to run a little competition now on my Facebook page, to get our minds away from the craziness that's happening.
The prize will be a mini session to be done in DECEMBER 2020. Location limited to the MacArthur region.

To enter, like my Facebook page www.facebook.com/virtualmemories, like this post, comment your favourite photo on your phone and tag 3 friends. I'll keep it going into next Monday when I'll draw a random winner

Times are a bit daunting right now, but always look towards the rainbow at the end of the storm.
.
I want to create a bit of fun today and I'm thinking a competition could be a good distraction, what do you guys think? Let me know in the comments :)

COVID-19

It's a bit of a worrying time right now, not knowing what's going on and doing what you can to protect your family.

I'm doing my part with the babies and families I meet, my studio is cleaned and hard surfaces disinfected after every session, all props and wraps are either disinfected or washed after every use. I don't do back to back sessions in studio to ensure everything is as clean and sanitary as possible. I'm pretty much self isolated anyway with a 14 month old that hates the car, so I have very minimal contact with other people. And I'm happy to wear a mask in newborn sessions if this makes people more at ease.

I now offer SQUARE for credit/debit card payments so cash doesn't have to be exchanged.

And outdoor sessions I don't physically touch anyone, use a longer lense so we can utilise social distancing and we will be out in the open. Also happy to wear a mask if this makes you feel more at ease.

If any clients are feeling unwell before your scheduled session, please reschedule for my families health as well as other clients. Thank you!

Nikki
