Maternity: Michelle at 31 weeks


Expecting your first baby is one of life's most amazing and miraculous events that a woman can experience. I love photographing expectant mommies and their precious bellies. Michelle is 31 weeks in this shoot and looking beautiful.
Good luck and all the best Michelle. I can tell that you are going to be a close knit family with love in abundance!

Family - mini photo shoot

It is amazing how fast little ones grow and actually how much life changes over relatively short periods of time. Sometimes it is just time to grab the camera and document your family at that time. I think that is what went through my husband's mind when he asked for a quick family photo shoot of him and the kids the other day.




 



My eldest took this one.  Not bad for a six year-old!

Love much!

Children: Aerial (little mermaid) 4th birthday party

Delia celebrated her 4th birthday, and the only cake she wanted was an Aerial, little mermaid cake. Girls know exactly what they want, even at four years old. Here are some shots of the beautiful decor. She is very privileged to have two talented aunts. Aunty Susan baked the cake, cupcakes and other goodies. She also shopped for decorations and made the stunning banner, party boxes and and and... Creative balloons were courtesy of aunty Estie. Mommy threw everything together...
The Aerial birthday cake consisted of a carrot cake layer and a chocolate brownie cake second layer... I'm sure Susan will tell you more on the detail of this piece of art, keep an eye on her blog .


We decided to have the party indoors and it all worked beautifully.


Look at the seaweed, complete with fairy lights from the ceiling.
This is a sweet:


The balloons were little fish and amazing octopuses on pillars!


These cupcakes were divine!



Real little lady.

Got to love the shoes!

The little sister...

Princeses on the (jumping) castle.


Blowing out the candles:




I love photographing children, and this was great fun. Just look at this expression - gifts are amazing!

Happy birthday my darling, and many many more...
