It was Arthur's 1st birthday and his mum Emma wanted to celebrate with a cake smash for him and his sister Estella. They chose a blue cake to match their outfits and put up bunting and balloons in the background. As soon as the cake was put down, Arthur ran over to it and put his finger through the icing and into his mouth. The smile that immediately came across his face was priceless. Soon he was shoving whole handfuls into his mouth, as he savoured the taste.
It wasn't long before Arthur's sister Estella came running over, so that she too could taste the cake that was quickly becoming quite messy all over Arthur's face. They both sat and ate most of the icing off the top of the cake, before karate chopping into the centre, to reach the sponge beneath.
A birthday kiss was given to Arthur by Estella, and then the finger painting on the floor began. The room was an absolute mess with cake everywhere by the time they had finished with it, and off to the bath they were sent. Below are some of the photos.
Little Harry has just turned 1 and his mum and dad wanted to do a cake smash for his birthday. Kate spent all day in the kitchen baking this gorgeous rainbow cake with sprinkles on top and blowing up balloons for in the background.
Despite being interested in the cake all day while she was baking it, when I arrived, Harry didn't even want to touch the cake. He cried when he got some on him, which made shooting a cake smash very difficult.
Luckily, Kate and Dean decided to get in the picture as well, and made a very big mess of each other and the floor. Even the two dogs got in on the action and managed to make Harry laugh when one of them licked his foot.
A good time was had by all, but I left feeling sorry for Kate who had to clean up the mess after I left. Here are some of the photos.
I recently had a maternity shoot with my beautiful friend Tara. We headed out to a spot that I found in Rochedale South, where there were some nice trees in the background, as I wanted her to stand out in all her glory. With only a few more weeks to go, she looked absolutely gorgeous, with her baby belly standing out proud. Congratulations Tara. I can't wait to meet the little one!
I hope everyone out there is keeping safe this weekend with all the storms about, and that there isn't too much damage to people's property!
A couple of my girlfriends and I recently went up to Caloundra to photograph the wreck on Dicky Beach. We got up before sunrise on both mornings we were there, and also spent part of the night on the beach as well. We were presented with stormy weather and a lot of rain for the whole duration of the trip. Nevertheless, we all had a great time away and even got to experiment with light painting during one of the nights that we spent trying not to get too wet. I have put together a slideshow of some of the photos that I took during our trip together. I hope you enjoy it.
Before the Christmas holidays I had the pleasure of photographing Hilary and Andrew's wedding. The ceremony and reception were held at the Full Moon Hotel in Sandgate and for the family photos we went down to the Shorncliffe Pier and Park. The bride and bridesmaid were both stunning and had flowers and dresses in whites, yellows and pinks. It was a beautiful wedding looking out over the Ba. Congratulations Hilary and Andrew. I hope you're both very happy together.
