What camera do you use & how do you edit photos?
It’s taken me a long time to perfect my image style, especially when creating the look and feel to my Instagram feed. I use a Canon DSLR camera (switch between 60D and 80D) or my I phone 6 (depending on what I feel like using). My advice when looking at buying a professional camera would be to invest in a good lens and not focus too much on the quality of the camera body. Again this all comes down to reasearch and there’s some amazing sites on line helping you to choose what camera fits best to your skill level. I shoot on manual mode and change the settings with every image taken. This allows me to have control over the images every aspect; lighting, focus, colour etc. There’s a lot of work that goes into changing settings for each image taken. New to using a DSLR? Start off in Auto mode and learn to play using the point and shoot method.
I’m self taught with photography as well as editing. I’ve spent countless hours online researching, learning, absorbing and tonnes of practice. I edit with multiple programs depending on where I am and what look I’m going for. I have photoshop on my desktop and several apps on my phone. My go to would be VSCO but I don’t use filters, I edit each photo to a fine detail, specific to the quality of the lighting.
KYREE’S TIPS: Ensure you have great natural light. Poor lighting encourages a poor quality image making it harder to edit. Find editing styles that suit YOU! Play around with editing apps and use the same edits for each image (depending if quality is the same). Don’t try and copy someone’s else’s style as it will be near impossible to achieve. Do your research and practice practice practice! Learning to take amazing photos won’t happen over night, you need to invest your heart and soul into achieving the look you’re after.
Where is your baby change table/drawers from?
They are from IKEA. If you search for my Nursery Reveal Blog- I detail and link all suppliers including these drawers. I found new wooden handles on eBay by searching “wooden handles”.
The set of three wooden floating ones near my kitchen are actually a laminex type material from Masters. The white book ledge floating shelves in my living area are from Ikea, we put two lengths together on each level to make them longer. The ones in my nursery are all also from Ikea.
Yes, they are both high off the ground, out of reach from tiny hands. Which means you can style them to please you.
What colour are your walls?
They are Dulux Snow Season half strength. It’s a bluey type of grey but certainly is not too over powering. It’s a very HOT colour this season.
The dandelion is from Armadillo & CoThe large white and black Kenza rug from Freedom AustraliaThe white lush rug in the nursery from Olliella
I support all local Australian businesses, usually found through the world of Instagram. I also support international businesses that I have befriended over the years.

Yes, there are sheer so you can still see out side. Perfect for when kids come along as you can still keep an eye on them when they are closed
We used a wood look floor tile from Tile Boutique here in Perth. They are NOT wood, they are NOT vinyl, but YES they are a floor tile.
We built through Celebration Homes although I don’t recommend going through them if you’re wanting to upgrade things. We were told NO in pre start to 99% of all our wants and in hind site we now wish we went with another builder
We use frames from Thingz Living and Ikea mostly. I then use the natural wood look backing to frame the pictures if the prints are smaller than the frame.
It was a bargain thrift find. It was made by the Blind Association in Australia over 50 years ago but they are no longer making them. No it’s not for sale sorrryyyy, I will be keeping this for our baby to sleep in.
I shop all over and like to have a healthy balance of prints from a wide range of stores. I do have a lot of beautiful prints from Yorklee Prints www.yorkelee.com.au
