pretty in pink…

I took some quick pics of my gorgeous, chatty, clever & hilarious niece a few weeks ago.  She’s a dote & she really is a crack up!  She donned the ladybug hat & I think, was rather impressed with the bee she gave me…

A bookworm to rival all bookworms – it was a good way to have her sit still for a few minutes…

With a brand new baby brother in the other room, I think someone was well & truly enjoying all the attention…

Only for a brief minute did she take her eyes off that book to give me a curious look.  I might still have had the bee on my head…

The hall lights are actually red & the resulting pink glow it casts over these shots was so pretty…

These snaps were mostly taken in low light, hand-held on a slow shutter speed & a high ISO.  Although the results are less than ‘technically’ correct – I love how the graininess creates a more intimate atmosphere for the viewer. I also love them because I love them & I should really go find these two for some big auntie cuddles x

Have a great weekend.

family of four…

With the warm morning sun lighting up the day, we headed to a nice quiet beach for a little spot
of family time…

Sometimes you just need a little motivation!  It’s not easy being a supermodel when you’re only 2…

 A little pep talk from mum…

Some moral support from dad…

 Then maybe a little advice from big sis aswell, even if he’s still a tad too young to really appreciate it yet…

Thanks to this gorgeous family for a fun morning!

school’s out…

School holidays have arrived so I’ll be taking a bloggy break for a couple of weeks.  We’re staying home, spending lots of time doing as little as 2 boys will allow & I’m going to try really hard not to lose my shiz at ’em!  Really though, take a look – such cheek!

If you’ve got kids home on holidays, have fun & have a great weekend!

 

 

a big family snapshot…

   Photographing children can pose certain challenges – it’s not easy to get them to sit still or listen or even pretend they’re remotely enjoying themselves (it’s a boy thing) & I find I really have to remind myself that these children are not my own & therefore I should probably refrain from barking artistic orders at them – in public – and in front of their parents!  So it’s ironic then that all the challenges of a shoot like this are what make it so rewarding & the sense of satisfaction when the job is done is immense.

This particular family shoot consisted of 9 little angels, all very gorgeous & so handsome. Then just to mix things up we added some very cute Grandparents & smokin’ hot mummas & let’s just see how things turned out shall we…
