Another wedding I am very excited to share with you.
Lindsey and Leon had a classic and elegant wedding, the reception was held at one of the nicest churches I have been to, with large decorative windows allowing beautiful lighting (a photography dream).
The reception hall was stunningly decorated, with white and touches of pink and green as their colour scheme, my personal favourite wedding colours.
After photographing this lovely couple on their wedding day, I couldn’t wait to edit and share the love story.

Eli had a Micky Mouse themed cake smash for his first birthday last month.
Cake by: Cakes for any occasion
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.
Family christmas shoot I did for this beautiful family, they are just so much fun to work with that it hardly feels like work. We played around with some fake snow, decorated the tree a bit and even had a surprise early christmas present from santa. I photographed them for the first time last year, also for their christmas shoot, and I just loved seen them again this year.
This year for christmas I bought a new wood themed backdrop and I think it works beautiful to add warmth and touch of home to the images.
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.

This is Little Liam at one month, looking back now I can’t believe how fast time has gone by, this little man has already started walking around and developed a liking for popcorn.
This was his very first photoshoot and he wasn’t very sure of me (the stranger in the house) at the time and didn’t like the flash going off at all but he has had two shoots since then and he had no problems at all. In fact he is well on his way to becoming a model , always laughing, smiling and looking directly at the camera for me, unless there’s popcorn to be eaten, hehe.
This beautiful family’s studio photoshoot took place quiet some time ago (yes I am still catching up), they truly worked so nicely together, each waiting their turn with mommy or daddy for the “two at a time” portraits, despite having three hyperactive young boys.
I love taking family photos, just to be able to catch a glimpse into other families and how they get along, despite all our differences we still love each other and find a way to make it work. And one of the most beautiful things, I find, is to behold is the unbreakable bond between parents and their children.
Make sure that at some point in your life you have a photoshoot with your family and try to capture every stage of your little ones life, as they don’t stay so little forever and you will cherish those memories when they are all grown up.
