this blog has moved

Not that I’ve posted here in ages anyway, but to formalise the change that’s already happened, and to give notice that this website will soon be revamped with more photos at bigger sizes – and no built-in blog – here’s a post to say that all of my blogging now happens at lkrms.org. You’ll find posts about everything I find interesting over there; to limit yourself to photography-related posts, try lkrms.org/category/photography.

Thanks!

We’re still here:)

I haven’t been able to blog during our transition to being a family of 4, taking a day job and doing battle with a few different health struggles, but we’re still here!

Still shooting a select number of weddings (no more than 5 per year), still photographing families and individuals, still teaching our photography course, still busy with Heartfelt.

Still loving all of the various things we do, especially when we get to do them with these bundles of cuteness! Scroll down to meet Katherine Abigail, if you haven’t been stalking us on social media;)

CeeJay John Nweke - What I love most is how the logo integrates with the photos. WOW! What an identity. I’m really impressed. |
You can tell I came here from Jacob cass’ site.

Children certainly are awesome. So too is your skill at photographing them.

Denise Perentin - Beautiful photos Luke.

emma and daniel … [newcastle wedding]

Their entire relationship was long-distance … until their wedding day.

Needless to say, it was pretty special.

gabi - Beautiful photos Luke, probably one of the best …

Linda - Wow, I was just referred to your site and I am blown away by these pictures. I don’t know these people but I feel a little like I do now. What a lovely wedding day story you have told.

Riana - What beautiful wedding memories, beautiful portraits, great location shots. You really captured the glowing energy of the couple and their special day. Gorgeous work!

Kate - LOVE THEM!!! Looks like the Bride and Groom had a lovely day! These pics are WONDERFUL Luke, I hope they fell in love with them!!

what’s happening?

Is point form OK? Cool, I didn’t think you’d mind;)

  • To put you out of your misery: no, Michelle hasn’t given birth to iArms 2.0 yet. That said, we’re less than a week off the official due date, our little girl has “engaged” (whatever that means!), and we’re ready to meet her aaaaanytime now. Follow me on Twitter if you want too much information when everything’s underway!
  • Related: Michelle is now officially unemployed! She decided to do the full-time mum thing with baby #2, but I’m hoping she’ll find a little time for OFD later in the year … she has some mad biz skillz;)
  • Josiah is two!
  • My issues with depression and anxiety aren’t fully in the past yet, but happy pills have made for much progress, so… yay!
  • We’re rebranding! Kinda sorta. I’ve been planning to launch a commercial photography brand for a while, and now that we’ve acquired some studio space, it’s finally happened! Luke Arms Photographer is now live, with its own logo, website, blog and Facebook page. As you can see, we’re specialising in a particular style of headshot photography, but LAP will also host some personal projects and fine art work eventually.
  • Meanwhile, OFD isn’t going anywhere! We’re improving our processes, giving our blog a facelift (fancy new portfolio section coming soon) and shooting fewer weddings to make way for more family sessions, but in every other way, we’re business as usual:)
  • Being the Newcastle coordinator for Heartfelt has been really special. Working with such a selfless team of photographers to deliver this profoundly valuable service to families is a delight, confronting as the work itself can be. Please continue to talk about Heartfelt with your friends.

That’s it for now!
