Bliss Out Books

Dear friend and author, FJ Collins, is currently touring Australia launching her fiction books that encourage children to live consciously.

Felicity is an Australian Fantasy Author who weaves mysticism and subtext about the life enhancing practice of meditation in her writing for Children and Young Adults.

The Oracles of Leoht are three ordinary kids who are transformed into extraordinary kids when their mother takes them to live in the Superintendent's residence of the Jacaranda Road Cemetery, in South Australia. Kate, Finn and Magenta Penny awaken to new possibilities and begin to understand that they each have a unique gift. In order to use that gift and battle the darkness in our universe, they need to first face their deepest, darkest fears. Ultimately this series is about finding yourself before rushing out into the world with all of its challenges and dark manifestations.

Jody & Richard.... 22.10.2010

My beautiful sister & her proud new husband were married last weekend.

Entwined branches of the willow tree formed circles which served as halos for delicate balls of cream silk tissue, threaded on long strands of white cotton. Floating amongst the tissue, brown paper hearts filled with merino wool, stitched closed with pale lemon embroidery thread.

During the commitment their two year old son, Bayden, chose a red rose from the antique rose petals that formed the aisle, and handed the flower to his mother. He wore pink ballet slippers which belonged to the flower girl ;)

Here are the bridal party photographs taken by the incredibly talented Justin Aveling.....

Jody had a real issue with shoes when she was younger. She is too grounded for those sorts of things. So in keeping with her desire for bare feet & divine beauty we threaded our own footless sandals with Swarovski crystals.
 For good luck a rose quartz mala (Buddhist prayer beads blessed by Rinpoche) broke at the end of the evening.....

  • "Don't worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you." Robert Fulghum

This week.. the end of this beautiful shoot Noah kindly offered Lawson a rice cracker. My ego stepped in and asked Lawson to say thank you. Noah kindly reminded me that wasn't necessary... "Oh, he doesn't have to say that. We speak the same language. Except ours sounds more like jibber jabber jibber jabber jibber..." and he danced off toward the palm trees. Lawson stood unfazed, munching on his snack. I was left standing there with a strong feeling of embarrassment, amazement and a strong connection to the divine beings that we call children. Oh we have so much to learn....

I have been working on re-branding Innocent Eyes Photography. Those of you who know us well will have noticed changes taking place over the past two years. The business takes shape as we grow with Lawson and rediscover the world through the eyes of the children we work with. Lots of colour is emerging as our senses awaken and we capture more and more imagery.  I have been working on illustrations which you will see emerge over the next few weeks. Featured here is our NEW and FINAL edit for the Innocent Eyes Photography logo that I sketched this morning. I hope you like. I look forward to your thoughts and suggestions. C x
