As the new year roles around, it’s a really good time to think about how many photos you have of you and your kids. Photographs have this amazing ability to capture and preserve one single moment in time.
Owned and operated by the Jayde Gerke, Lorde Photography is your go-to for all your photography needs. Jayde will shoot weddings, families, events, businesses and anything else you need.
Jayde obtained her diploma in photography a few years ago and since that time her business has grown significantly. She has had a few breaks to have her 3 babies and to get married herself.
A photo shoot with Lorde Photography is relaxed, enjoyable and affordable. When Jayde did our family photoshoot we had an absolute blast. She made us all feel comfortable and she even put up with a very naughty baby (here’s looking at you Tommy!)

I love businesses that start organically, and from the heart and that is exactly where Run Riot came from.
Started by Kellie Gibson last year this active wear brand has grown enormously due to its loyal supporters.
Kellie says running riot was how she described her kids when they would just take off and run wild and free, not taking life too seriously and just being in the moment. Kids run with an uninhibited freedom and lack of judgement and she wanted to encapsulate that into her sports headwear brand.
Run Riot was born from the notion of running free like a child, and who doesn’t want that feeling? Best of all, this is a brand that can be enjoyed by the whole family while you all RUN RIOT!
If you would like to help your family Run Riot then get in contact today:

Every so often you come across great products that actually make a big difference to your life and that’s exactly what you get with Kate Davis and KissesFromKate. Kate is a local, independent LipSence, SeneGene Skincare and Makeup distributor.
Kate tells me one of the things that drew her to the products were the fact that they are lead free, wax free, gluten free, contain no animal by-products and aren’t tested on animals. How amazing is that?
You know what else gives Kate credit in my book? The only reason she started selling the products in the first place is because she fell so in love with them when she was using them just for personal use. I love when people just find a passion for something because it actually works for them.
Kate says the helping women (and men!) feel better about themselves in their own skin in what keeps her passionate about the range of SeneGence products.
Check out KissesFromKate today because you won’t regret it (plus it makes Christmas shopping SUPER easy!)
