Babies, Babies, Babies, Babies... good friends, lots of them having BABIES... I have a pang of 'I want one' but then I realize that I can love on all my beautiful friends babies. THIS is a very dear friend and someone I don't see nearly enough!!  It was cold, (however she didn't complain) 20 mins Miss was not enough time... however I am looking forward to the next couple of weeks when the 3 (bump included) of us can sit for longer, love on her and record her first few days of her beautiful life xxx

Best of luck my sweet, I am sure she will arrive in due time xx

The anticipation of something new.

Sometimes taking a moment is necessary, necessary for us to touch base with our realities.  The anticipation of a new person entering our lives is a beautiful feeling, occasionally a scary feeling but all that fear disappears when you hold that precious parcel in your arms.  Nothing can beat it.... nadda. xxinspire-me-23

It started way back when.

The crazy season will now commence!!!  The sun is out, the air has a fresh scent of summer.  Its wedding season.  Best friends are saying "I do", celebrations happen and lives together begin.  I have to admit I am rather giddy about my up coming season.  I have so many wonderful couples, and I get to share their moments and hopefully capture the essence of their day. In between the nuptials I have a few beautiful portrait sessions which of course I adore!!

Today we celebrated the soon to be new addition to a fabulous family.

Jason and Jo met in primary school, I think Jo mentioned that Jason was her first kiss  (at the movies when she was 7!!!!)  Obviously it was that kiss that spurred their fate, because a few years, an "I do" and little Cameron later, here they are  as smitten with each other today as they were those moons ago!

Ohh and if anyone is wondering... these are my photo of the day.... day 13!!

Jo thank you for being a gorgeous person inside and out.  I wish the 3 of you the best luck for baby number 2.  Enjoy your sneak peek!!










Princes and Frogs

More than a year ago.  I quietly waltzed into the 'new' store in town.  I was pregnant and in the mood to spend.  I ohhhed  and ahhhhed at the teeny tiny shoes, I had to have the bassinet in the window, (even though I was pregnant with #3 and REALLY did not need another sleeping apparatus)  The gorgeous little onsies beckoned to, buy, buy.  It smelt new, it was new and I was in LOVE !!!  Dagmar kindly agreed to putting some sample shots up to showcase.  I kindly made her hire me so I could hang out and bask in the glory of baby stuff!!!  Forward a few months (maybe a year) and 6 shifts later (due to my belly it was a short stay), we are standing in an orchard in the middle of nowhere, clouds looming overhead, spitting out the occasional drop, threatening our session.  Dagmar is taking it in her stride, looking luminous and very pregnant.  39 weeks and not a waddle in site.   Thank you for being a beautiful model, thank you for being a wonderful person.  I wish you all the love for your new bundle!!!  

If you ever need beautiful things, Dagmar has the bestest ever store THE FROG PRINCE and hey if you can't make it to Oamavegas (thats Oamaru) then visit her online store!!!!
