Harry Potter

Toby was pretty excited about doing his Harry Potter shoot. His only concern was when I told him I would make him a Quiditch broom. He pondered this for a moment, not trusting Mum's making abilities, and then asked," Mum, where does Mr. Maker live? Maybe we could get him to come in his Maker Mobile and make my broom instead!" Oh dear.....he has not faith in his Mum! Once I convinced him that I would have a go first before calling Mr. Maker, he was happy outside collecting sticks while I bundled them together. I felt a received the ultimate children's compliment when he was sitting contentedly on the couch with finished broom in hand, "Mum, I think you might be better than Mr. Maker!" Wow, score one for Mum! In Toby's eyes, that is as big as compliments could get! He loved casting spells willy nilly for this shoot, ppfftting and spitting with each one and he LOVES his poster. It looks all dark and scary Mum. Great job again mate.

Meg, Alice, Max and Henry

With Spring fast approaching, today's late Winter session was just beautiful. Lots of glorious afternoon sunshine, lush green grass, yellow daisies, and a gorgeous family too! It was one of those shoots that just was so much fun and not at all like work....although there was one little subject who didn't really enjoying the spotlight with anybody and kept pushing various family members out of shot! Too cute! Denielle and Scott, you have a beautiful family, thanks for allowing me to capture this moment in your lives.

I was so honoured when Sarah asked me to capture some images of her brand new little girl Coco.  I work with Sarah in the wedding industry as she is half of the wonderful Sublime Mobile Hair and Makeup team, and we have all been awaiting the arrival of her little bundle with great anticipation. Coco decided to enter the world a little earlier than we thought she would and is now 7 weeks old....and so much like her Daddy! She was just so sweet and more interested in having a good look around though than falling asleep. Once the heater was cranked up however, she sprawled out in adorable fashion on her rug and snoozed happily while I clicked away. She didn't take to well to being moved to a different position though, so back shots it was! She is beautiful Sarah and Brian. Again, thank you for trusting me to photograph this special time in her life.

Mum's ring...destined to be Coco's one day.

A girl can't get by without her Chanel...Coco Mademoiselle of course!

Enough more photos!
