Charlie - celebrating 70 years

I had the pleasure of photographing a wonderful celebration
for the 70th Birthday of Charlie. In just a matter of moments Charlie made you feel
like you'd known him forever.
His gorgeous family asked me to come along and take some photos of this special day
at their home - everything was perfect - the location, the weather, the food, the company.






Isn't this family beautiful ... I told you they were gorgeous!






and this lovely man asked me to take some photos with his 2 stunning daughters,



how beautiful is this?

Thank you for a wonderful afternoon and for asking me to capture this day for you.

Last few Xmas mini sessions

Well it's sneaking up on us - Christmas is not that far away and before you know it you'll be putting up the Christmas Tree and sending out the Christmas Cards.

I'm really excited to be offering some 30 minute Mini Xmas sessions and I have a couple of times available on Saturday 10th October - that's only 2 weeks away.

It's a great way to get a disc with photos of you and your family as well as 20 personalised Xmas Cards and envelopes (which will have your photos on it as well as your name and good wishes).
All for $220.

If you'd like some more information or to reserve a session,
feel free to email me at

More slide shows

I am loving these slide shows and I was so excited to create this one with this beautiful piece of music. You may remember this gorgeous family from a few months back - I had so much fun capturing these images for them.

believe it or not!

My wonderful and talented friend Eliza has been helping me to learn how to create a slideshow and also how to upload it to my blog - she has been so patient and I can't thank her enough - I think if you click on the link below you'll get to see my first slideshow - hooray!

The next one will have music - off to learn how now - what would I do without you Eliza!

Word Of Mouth

All of my business so far has come from word of mouth and I'm so thankful for the friends and clients who have referred me to their friends.

Some of you may remember the lovely 5th birthday that I photographed not that long ago for Miss Olivia. It was a delightful party with amazing details from Olivia's mum, Sharnel, who created the most superb Candy Bar along with plenty of other gorgeous touches.
Since then, my photos have been featured on some of the most amazing blogs
both in Australia and around the world.

If you have some time and want to read some beautiful blogs, take a peak at some of the ones I'm featured on.

My life - My loves - this is Sharnel's blog
Thanks again for all the support!

Finally, I have the dates that I'll be coming to Sydney in January next year.
I'm looking forward to a great time at a workshop
as well as a day and a half having fun with some photo sessions.

Here are the dates I'll be down:

Monday 11 January 2010 - 7pm sunset beach session - RESERVED
Tuesday 12 January 2010 - workshop - no sessions
Wednesday 13 January 2010 - 10.30am Centenial Parklands session -

If you would like some more information about the last couple of available photo sessions,
you can email me at leannestamatellos@hotmail.com .
They will be held on Wednesday 13 January 2010 during the morning and afternoon.

And of course there is no fun in having a post without a photo.
I thought a beach one might be appropriate now that Spring has arrived - hooray!
