Cowgirl Liah had her 8th birthday party in a beautifully decorated barn with a pink cowgirl theme.
There were horse rides for everyone and feeding of all the farm animals, as well as a tractor ride around the farm. The barn was truly beautifully decorated with straw on the floor for a truly unique party location. Sadly Liah was a bit sick but she pulled through like a champ and still had a blast.
Last year I photographed this little munchkin’s first birthday party and this year I got to photograph his second, everything was Barney and friends themed and Barney himself even made a surprise appearance and the kids just loved it.
It just amazes me how fast he has grown, last year his mom and dad had practised blowing out the candles with him, so he could blow out his own candles on his birthday, this year he couldn’t wait to blow them out and he got them on his first try and just look at that face, his going to be breaking hearts in no time.
Here we have Essie’s first birthday party and what fun was had! With yummy snacks, bubbles and a jumping castle the kiddies just had a blast. Even the weather was on their side, despite the previous few days rain.
I just love photographing kiddies parties, there is no better way to capture the most natural photos of pure joy.
I am so please to have been part of this lovely day, spent at the Ostrich Ranch. The day started off with everyone meeting at the ranch and having a stroll in and around the little souvenir shops, followed by quick group photos before a guided tour around the inner part of the ranch. Where we were shown the skeletal structure of an ostrich, the size of their eggs, compared to other bird eggs.
Then everyone got to pet and feed some of the ostrich’s, as well as meeting the ostrich that holds the world record for been the worlds smallest ostrich. then if you wanted to you could have a sit on one of the tamer ostriches, as the birthday girl did. Followed by drinks, celebrations and a great meal prepared by the ostrich ranches restaurant.
This was both an educational and relaxing day spent celebrating in a slightly different way.
This was also my first time using my new 50mm f1.8 lens Nikkor lens, that I had been just dying to use and the results are better than I was expecting, it didn’t take long to become my favourite lens.
I must apologise for my lack of pasting the last few months. This year started with a bang and hasn’t really settled yet, hopefully I will be able to keep things up to date from now on and I hope you like everything thats to come 🙂
