FAQ PAGE

I often get asked questions on my social platforms, but I’m not always able to answer everyone at that given time. SO, I thought it would be a handy idea to answer them for you below. That way you can access the answers at your own leisure (without having to wait for me to get back to you). If you have any further questions and would like to pick my brain, please leave a comment below here…

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”. 

Where are your floating shelves from?
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.
 Are the shelves kid friendly?
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.
 Where is your floor rug from?
The dandelion is from Armadillo & Co
The large white and black Kenza rug from Freedom Australia
The white lush rug in the nursery from Olliella
 Where do you buy all your nic-nacs?
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.
 Where are your blinds from?
They were custom made from ABC Blinds.
Ask for Peter 0438 844 727 or osbornepark@abcblinds.com.au He will be able to help you, I swear by his amazing service. This man knows his blinds!!!
Are your blinds see through?
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
 What flooring do you have?
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.
 Who did you build through?
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
What picture frames do you use?
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.
 Where is your cane bassinet from?
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.
 Where are your prints from?
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
 Where do you buy your clothes?
From:
Blossom and Glow Maternity blossomandglow.com.au
Feather and Noise www.featherandnoise.com
 Where is your furniture from?
The leather/wood King bed frame and the wooden TV Unit are both from Lifestyle Furniture in Perth
The lounge & leather chair in the living area is from Freedom Australia
The lamps hanging in our room are from Beacon Lighting

    Did you buy the Ikea shelve recently Kyree? I haven’t been able to find them with the lip like yours do (great to ensure frames stay put). Thanks!

  3. June 17, 2015 / 5:24 am

    Sure did, you need to go to the Kitchen Section as that’s where you will find them. Other wise maybe ask someone who works there and they should help you out. These have been around for a long time so they will still be there 🙂

    Hi Lovely – the FAQ was such a good move. How on earth can one respond to 45k followers!!! Not an easy job. Well done.
    I’ve asked before but I think I’ve confused you! I desperate to grab your light blue jeans (the ones in the IG pic with the white witchery top) You have super cute leopard print wedges on your toes – that may help 🙂 Thx re the cotton ones but I don’t think I can ‘pull those off lol.

      Hey Lovely, yes hopefully this forum is helping people get the answers they want, when they want (instead of waiting for replies). I know the pants, I’m pretty sure they were from Cotton on too though. I just had a look on their website and they aren’t on there, i’ll double check the tag tonight Hun 🙂 x
