Hi Brandie – thank you for continuing to share sweet Immie with everyone. She definitely left her footprints on my heart, and there is not a day that goes by without thinking about her even though I never met her. Her Mom, Dad and brothers are incredible too, and I love that Immie continues to be a part of our lives even though she regretfully is no longer with us… I know your balloons made her smile, and I bet she loved Chloe’s note to her =)

I love your work!!! You are so very gifted!

Can go a very long way.

Most of you will know Imogen, she holds a special place in my heart, she continues to inspire me and many others every single day.

Not long beofre Immie gained her wings she was granted a wish from The Make A Wish Foundation, she went to Queensland with all of her family and visited the theme parks. Make A Wish is such am amazing organisation, they rely on donations to help grant these wishes and so many wishes go ungranted because there is just not enough funds to go around. 

A little while ago Fiona, Immie’s mum started Imogen’s Angels , she makes little clay ladybirds among other cute things to sell in honor of Immie.

Next week Immie turns 8, so for her birthday Fiona hopes to sell 100 little ladybird brooches and the money from the brooches will go to Make A Wish, they currently have 300 wishes on their list and at the moment are finding it hard to grant even a few as their funds are so low. These brooches are only $8 for a childs’s size, a few dollars can go a long way, so please go and check out Fi’s page, buy a ladybird or 2 for Immie and help get a few more wishes granted.

{ See You Someday } | Perth Photographer

‘ Good night my angel time to close your eyes and save these questions for another day

I think I know what you’ve been asking me, I think you know what I’ve been trying to say

I promised I would never leave you and you should always know

 Where ever you may go

No matter where you are

I never will be far away’

{ from Lullaby by Billy Joel}

A verse taken from Princess Ladybird’s Passing Parade held today.

What a Beautiful way to say ‘ see you someday’ to a beautiful little girl. So many people came together to celebrate Imogens life and remember her for the gorgeous, cheeky, bossy girl that she is and always will be. I think the image of the butterfly clinging to Kody and Fiona and not flying off once it was released will stick in my mind forever what a truly magical moment.

Fly free gorgeous girl you have inspired me and so many people, we will never forget your infectious smile and zest for life. Thankyou for being you.

 ’See you someday’ princess.

Imogens Biggest Morning Tea will be held on the 29th of May. Click the bold to go to the FB page for more info if you would like to come along and grab a yummy snack, enter the raffles for some GREAT prizes and do your bit for the fight against cancer.

Thankyou to all my wonderful clients/friends who have purchased a ladybird from Imogens Grandma, your support is greatly appreciated and Julia has raised $2000 already which is just awsome. If you haven’t seen or purchased a ladybird yet and would like to you can find them at Ladybird Ladybird ( click the bold ) they are absolutely beautiful. The ladybird became Imogen’s symbol when one was found in her Sterile room after completing stem sell rescue, truly meant to be.

{ Immie } | Perth Child Photographer

Today I was lucky enough to be invited to photograph Imogens 6th and 13th birthday party, as far as Imogen was concerned she was turning 13 so she was older than big brother Kody and well who are we to argue with that!?  There were Ben 10 performers, loads of food, a massive Ben 10 cake and of course all of Imogens family and friends to help celebrate, and although Immie wasn’t feeling the best i’m sure she had a great time. I am only going to post one photo from today it’s the only smile I think we all saw but sometimes all it takes is that one smile to make your day. Fiona and Jason once again it was an abosolute pleasure to spend time with you all today, thankyou for letting me get to know your gorgeous family you are truly amazing people and I think we can all learn alot from you guys


Imogen’s Nanna makes beautiful glass Ladybirds into jewellery inspired by Immie, Part proceeds go to the  Children’s Cancer Institute , So go and check them out and buy one for yourself and help find a cure for this monster disease.

Happy Birthday Sweet Girl
