Yesterday was our first night at the Made In Kiama – Handmade Night Market! and the Kiama pavilion was packed to the rafters with people admiring the wonderful products on offer, all beautifully crafted by Kiama locals. It was so refreshing to meet face to face with people i’ve chatted to online or via email but never quite managed to meet in person.  I think I like this market business.

I was a flutter of nerves on Friday morning in anticipation of receiving delivery of several boxes of my first Kisschasey Magazine. A labour of love created to help guide my clients through the custom portrait experience. I am so delighted with the final product. At our stall I’ve been handing out copies to anyone interested in a portrait shoot as it is packed full of information about the process, as well as great tips on how to get your kids smiling when your  taking your own family photos. I’m working on getting a digital version available next week…get in touch if you would like me to email you a copy!

I’ve also been offering market visitors the opportunity to win a custom family photo shoot with Kisschasey Photography complete with a framed art print along with the full digital collection and 5x7s of all the images in your gallery; valued at over $1800!
