A little girl with great big plans.

A mini Film by Hailey Bartholomew www.youcantbeserious.com.au I’m bringing Hailey to creativeLIVE in January Showreels & Showing off. YAH
Check Hailey’s Showreel her beautiful work on Vimeo and her 365grateful page (It’s a life changer)

I wanted to share this story. Inspired by an old Britney Spears song would you believe. ‘I’m not a girl, but still not a Woman’ to connect to the teenage/Seniors School market. Im so exhausted after my creativeLIVE week I will have to return at a later date to tell more story. I will simply say this. Hailey Bartholomew D.O.P Film Maker & Great Mum and all around super human being, you amaze me. Mindy Gledhill your music is out of this world gorgeous. Triple Scoop Music thank you for bringing great artists to the accessible realm for photographers. Anna, your light is so bright, your love of running and the pure joy you exude is infectious, good luck training for the next Olympics. Thank you for letting me be your Photographer.

Let our girls be girls. Let them become Women slowly. Women of substance. Help teach your children acceptance by being gentle with your self first. Love Sue. x

  1. This is the song I used for my “about me” video on my website….sometimes I still just feel like a little girl with great big plans, I hope I don’t ever grow out of that! lol. Love this video….so fun!

  2. This made my heart happy :)

  3. They are simply beautiful images and video. I have only just gotten to know your work from all the hype on FB from your creative live workshop last week….and might I say……AMAZING! You are certainly one I will be watching and finding inspiration from..thank you!

  4. So gorgeous Sue, that just put a huge smile on my face.

  5. Again, and yet never ending, I am moved to the boundaries of myself by your work, your passion and everything you do.
    It is through the deft touch of genuine humanity that you impact so many.

    Thank you,
    Thank you for being you, and in that, showing that we are all at our best when are simply us.

    PS. Seriously almost impossible for people not to crush on you. Virtually everyone I know be they a photographer or not, crushes on you for your words and spirit. :)

  6. Too much Sue too much – SO beautiful!!!! You ignite people to do all they were born to do. I cant tell you how much you have changed the way I look at my photography. Thankyou from the bottom of my heart x

  7. I chime in with you on that lovely wish that girls be girls, slowly growing into women of substance.
    And, Sue, you are a good example of how we all benefit from women of substance.

  8. This is so so beautiful! What a gorgeous collaboration – thank you for sharing! What an incredibly beautiful girl and so lucky to have this amazing time in her life captured in such a stellar way. The moment feels so special – LOVE. Such inspiration! (Love the sun flare… sigh…)

  53. Yes, women of substance start out as girls. Dream changer. I can’t wait to try some more video and am going to invite myself to tag along behind some of my favorite local photogs and talk stories to tell.
    I assume this was a whole day of filming on a canon 5dm2?

  54. Sorry, make that #365Grateful
    Also, if anyone (including you) wants to add instagram images you tag as #365gratitude or make up your own like #365SueisGrateful (http://web.stagram.com/tag/365grateful/) I’d advise adding a instagram plugin to your wordpress site to show a gallery of your daily pics. Here’s a list of 10 free instagram presentation plugins: http://wpmu.org/10-instagram-plugins-for-wordpress/
    If you need help, I’d be happy to install the plugin for you. I’m going to add one to mine soon. ;-)
    I started a I’m grateful and I wish daily email with pics that I send to my daughter at college.

  55. Loved this. Love.

  56. I have been watching the creative live episodes with you over and over. While I sit and work, edit you are in the background speaking words of wisdom. You inspire me to be the best I can wish for… and I am soooo excited to know that you are bringind Hailey to creative live in January to speak about Video. I may just have to try and get on the show so I can learn first hand!!! :)

  57. This made me tear up. How young and beautiful and happy she seems. Wouldn’t it be great if this could be captured during all the decades of our lives as women? If we could truly be that? Lovely work Sue.

  58. This is the song I use for my website too! And you have nailed the visual I had in my head…I still feel like a little girl with great big plans! You should consider the film industry, you know, in your spare time. LOL

    And I’m one of millions…I know!
