Holly is Growing Up

I can't believe how quickly Holly is growing up. When I started her pink dress photos 5 years ago, I couldn't have imagined how she'd change over the years. Even this year, I didn't think there'd be such a change from last year, but there is, she is definitely growing up!

Isn't this little guy just a cutie?

I took some family portraits for this lovely couple, their son was such a sweetie, and the cleverest little thing! He can sign so many words, I was amazed at how Baby signing really works! I'm hoping to photograph them again in the spring, but for now, here's a few from our first session.

Santa Claus is coming to Town!

I had a little shoot the other day for some Christmas card photos for two families. It was a funny, chaotic and crazy morning, but I think everyone agreed, Santa's little helpers were very good and gave us some gorgeous images to choose from!

If I wasn't a photographer...

...Could I be a cake-maker? My daughter turns five on Sunday, and set me the daunting task of making her a Barbie cake to celebrate! The baking of the cake was probably the most difficult part, fondant makes folds automatically, thereby making the skirt look quite realistic, and the piping is fun and easy to do. I am quite pleased with the result, although next year I think cupcakes will be in order!

mr smARTy pants

Nine weeks old and so adorable. This little guy slept like an angel for his photos, and looked like one too! Shot in their living room which has the loveliest bay window for natural light, I wish I could do all my shoots there!

Recognise the armchair? Scroll down! I photographed a friends' daughters and finally got to use the chair. The girls are lovely, and although I felt enormous pressure to take nice shots (my friend had a terrible experience with her girls' last photo shoot) I was really happy with the results and I think they are too. Taken at the same location as Sandy's family's, it is probably going to become one of the favourite spots!

Remember the Maternity Shoot?

Well, the baby is here! He's actually four weeks old in these shots, and what a cutie. He slept so soundly on the sheepskin, and was not impressed when his Mummy picked him up for the sitting shot, so he poo'ed and wee'ed all over her!

Sandy's Family Photo Shoot

Not only did I have lots of fun photographing Sandy's family, but I really enjoyed the location, and can't wait to take my own family there. Sandy and John have a lovely family, the boys are so sweet and fun, and Sandy's elegant mum was able to join them for the shoot before her return to SA.

Rosie the Kitten

So we have finally gotten a new kitten, Holly has been asking for one for so long, and she is tickled pink with Rosie! She now asks me to take new photos of her with Rosie nearly every day, and I actually thought these were quite sweet. I used Lady Ren's actions again, mostly Gentle Boost and Glow, with a couple of Vanilla Creams too!

The Last of Summer

Well, if there's one thing I've learned living in England, it's that when the sun is shining get outdoors with the kids! So we hit the park on Tuesday and I took these pictures of my sister's friends' kids.
