Backup Your Photos BEFORE the Computer Crashes!

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, August 26, 2008

For years I have been excruciatingly particular about backing up my photos – especially wedding pics. But I never really believed it would happen to me.  Have had a couple of hard disks come to grief,… but they gave indications and so I changed them.

Well it has happened. Very little indication of anything wrong.  So for the last 10 days I have been without my main computer.  BUT.  I never lost any photos.  And the wedding pics I am about to drop into their respective proof books are all safe. Sure I haven’t been able to work on them for nearly two weeks.  But critical backups have meant that no photos have been lost and no work completed has been wasted.

For all those who view this,…. PLEASE,…. even if it is “just” family snapshots do regular backups.  Put them onto dvd’s.  Get a second hard disk in your computer and back up to that.  Better still get two extra hard disks and use one for your photos and one for the backups of your photos.  Computers do crash and hard disks do die – both noisily and silently.

Nonetheless I have a second computer that is a bit slower.  So from Saturday week ago here are a few more of Seth and Karen just before they left for the USofA.

The Retro Bride Photo?

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, August 3, 2008

A blast from the past?  No not really.  Entirely a coincidental pic of a bride receiving a phone call from her almost groom.  But you know in my own wedding album is a photo of Heather all dolled up in her wedding dress with phone in hand.  Thing is I didn’t ring her at that point.  It was the traditional photo of the day.

Well in this pic Felicity had just finished getting her hair done and I was taking a few pics of her prior to heading away from the “make-over pit”!  And her man just wanted to hear her voice.  It was terrific.  So we kept taking pics to record it.

There you go 🙂

Felicity loving the sound of her man.

It All Begins Somewhere

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, January 10, 2008

I gotta tell you. And it might come as a surprise to some.  But 5 kids and 14 grandkids have just got to start somewhere.  Don’t go looking under rocks or cabbage patches.  No point blaming someone else.  The  Harold Holt government of 41 years ago wasn’t the cause.  It was these two.

And I’ve got to tell you they were really keen to help ensure the long photoshoot ran smoothly.  Why?  Because they love their kids & Grandkids and they know what memories are made of.   Great isn’t it!

Romance in Harold Boas Gardens

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, December 15, 2007

Have been doing a project for a while now – a family shoot extended over a longer period of time.  Tried this with a few people but for one reason or another, til now, it just hasn’t got to completion stage.  Today was time for the couple themselves,… alone,… 3 young children not tagging along,… just husband and wife alone in a fabulous park right in the centre of Perth city.

Now this park just has to be the best kept secret in West Australia.  Awesome place.  Great lighting. Fabulous opportunity to relax and take some romantic pics like they haven’t had since they were married a million years ago.  Well maybe not so long but sometimes when the little feet start pounding the household all attention seems to permanently go there too. Got some brilliant photos – they were right into one another and quickly got the hang of ignoring photographer and assistant.

So a couple of pics…

Two Doggies With Their favourite Person

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, November 9, 2007

A baby is soon to make his/her entrance into this wonderful world.  Of course once bub lets those lungs loose it will be like a trumpet announcing that two cute doggies are about to have their habits retrained a tad. No longer will they hold centre stage. But that’s the way of life when a child is born. Babies are absolutely dependent and require quite a bit of attention. It’s all good.

But just for now a pic of Karen with her current babies giving a bit of doggie love to her!!!

End of Season Awards

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, October 13, 2007

Twice in a month I’ve featured Ryan. Good cause though. He had a pretty reasonable season of footy and his team – Whitford Warriors – made the finals. So a pic of him and his fabulous wife from just before heading into the celebrations at the Rendezvous.
