TDSI Shoot

And finally The Doggie Support Initiative winners photos are here. Gail and her furkid Kiara won the TDSI photoshoot raffle draw, to support dogs in need.

It was just before christmas so we added a bit of christmas props. Kiara just loves running and she is so fast so I took a lot of photos just to get one of her running and it turned out great it actually looks like she is flying, just one of my favourite photos. Just a friendly lovely girl and loved photographing her.

Creed’s 2nd Birthday

 

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.

Essie’s first Birthday

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.

Wedding

I could barely wait to share these photos of this beautiful wedding with you.

I had the amazing opportunity to second shoot on this beautiful outdoors wedding, as nervous as I was to take part in my first wedding shoot I couldn’t wait to get shooting at weddings and I was more than happy wit the outcome of the photos. I learnt so much from just this one day and continue to assist and second shoot so I can learn as much as possible and I have helped out on a few weddings since. I have also decided to start shooting weddings myself and am hoping to share one of my own wedding shoots with you shortly, so keep an eye out.

I had so much fun both shooting and editing these image and can’t wait for winter to come to an end now and wedding season to take hold.

Hoping you like my work, for more I am on Facebook at Nikita VdV Photography or check out my website at Nikita VdV Photography.

Birthday Celebration

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.

Sheeba

Here she is, Sheeba 10 week old puppy, Max’s little sister (Max, last week’s post) at her first Doggie shoot.

After  she had a good sniff around my studio and wondering off every now and then, she sat just long enough between treats for me to take photos of  her and after she had her fill she started to get sleepy (just like her brother) and I got some lovely photos of her getting comfy and eventually falling into a well deserved slumber.

This beautiful blue eyed girl is a true model, well as long as you have treats to bribe her with. She has been on several photoshoots, including having taken part in a winter wonderland kiddies clothing shoot for a UK clothing company.

Max

10 Week old puppy Max’s first photoshoot. This handsome young husky’s photoshoot came just before christmas, I set up and decorated a christmas tree for him to pull down and he was well suited to the job, before I could even pick up my camera he was already pulling at the tree and I had just managed to take one photo and down came the tree.

He had an absolute blast and fell asleep half way through the shoot, thats when I manages to get a santa hat on him just long enough to get a few photos and then he was back at it. After a well deserved rest for Max we removed all the chewable props and he sat nicely for some puppy portrait shots.

Keep an eye out for his little sisters photoshoot coming next week.

Month Old – Liam

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.

Bubble Guppies Cake Smash

Another cake smash to share with you, this time the theme was Bubble Guppies, with under the ocean colours, hanging blue and green balloons and a Bubble Guppies styled cake.

Once again this little guy was a great sport, he took some time to appreciate his cake before devouring it, till there was almost more cake on him than was left on the ground.

Cleaning up after a cake smash can take some time but it is well worth the effort to see how much fun the kiddies have. after seen them have so much fun I wish I could have a cake smash all my own.

Mini Mouse Cake Smash

This little sweetie pie is crazy about Mini Mouse, can’t you tell?

She also loved the balloons at her very own, “private birthday party”. She didn’t waste any time digging into the cake, face and all, and if didn’t take her long to smash the cake. Her mommy picked out her favourite cartoon character as her cake smash theme along with how the cake should look.

When booking a Cake Smash with me, you chose the theme you think your little one would like and what style you want the cake (cake included in shoot).
