The Mama Owl > About Me
My name is Stacey, and I am obsessed with owls. But, you’ve probably guessed that much already.
On the 12/2/13 I became a Mum for the first time. It was the craziest & most amazing thing I’ve ever done. I still can’t believe how much love I have for this little man. Ivan is my world & he turned my life upside down. We breastfeed, baby-wear, occasionally co-sleep & I’m a big advocate of gentle parenting. I also hang out with kids in my day job, as a childcare assistant. I love seeing Ivan (and “my” other kids) grow & develop. I’m studying a Bachelor of Early Childhood Education, and I already have a Bachelor of Behavioural Science.
Photography is my passion. From those first few encounters with an old Kodak point-and-shoot I’ve moved onto shooting with both film and digital SLR’s. I’ve even tried my hand at developing & printing my own black and white film – my boyfriend and I are currently in the midst of amassing the equipment to try processing colour film. Most of my shooting is currently done using a Canon EOS 50D, but my true love is my Canon EOS 3. If film wasn’t so damn expensive, I’d use it every single day.
I also like to make things. If I’m not out on an adventure with my cameras, then you’ll probably find me behind my sewing machine with an iced coffee in hand, a manic expression on my face, and either a Kevin Smith movie, Family Guy episodes, science-fiction shows or something involving superheroes playing in the background.
