Maddison's 1st birthday Cake Smash!

A little while ago this gorgeous little girl celebrated her first birthday, and mum Nel wanted to remember the occasion with a cake smash! 

Maddison had a mini mouse party for her birthday so we styled the shoot pink, black and white to suit the mini mouse theme, and mum even made a special t-shirt to complete the look.

As is usually the case with cake smashes, it took Maddison a little while to figure out what to do with the big pink cake that mum and dad put in front of her, but she had fun checking it out and got herself good and messy in the end. 

Happy birthday beautiful girl, we hope to see you next year for your next milestone :-)

Pssst... If you'd like to capture a special time in your little ones lives just check out our Milestone Mini Sessions:

Why do we do this every year?

Clare's father-in-law, David Silvestro, was diagnosed with bowel cancer at the beginning of 2010. Sadly he lost his battle in mid April 2011. We miss him dreadfully and it makes us value our own dad's and families even more.

Because of this, we have chosen to hold a yearly fundraising event, a family portrait day in honor of Clare's father-in-law to coincide with Father’s Day and at the same time raise money for a VERY worthwhile cause.


Our aims are to raise money for Bowel Cancer Australia, as well as to increase the awareness of bowel cancer.

Bowel cancer claims close to 80 lives every week. It is the 2nd biggest cancer killer in Australia, but probably the least well known. The worse thing is, It can be treated successfully in 90 per cent of cases if caught in time, however, by the time you show symptoms it may be too late.

The National Bowel Cancer Screening Program has been put in place in an attempt to help reduce deaths by finding the disease before its too late. The program has saved more than 11,000 lives since bowel cancer screening was introduced in 2006, including my mother-in-law. But the problem is…not many people know about it.

Bunbury Studio Photography ~ The Hamilton Girls


Recently we had the pleasure of having three gorgeous little girls in the studio. Bec, Dayle, and their two girls had just welcomed baby Willow into their family, and what better way to celebrate this new chapter in their lives than with a newborn portrait session. Of course we couldn't leave out Willow's sisters Sybella & Harper, so we split our time to have some fun with the three girls together before spending some time capturing some beautiful portraits of baby Willow. I don't mind telling you, a kids portrait session with three girls all under the age of 5 is more than a little challenging, and you need to be quick to get the shots before toddlers have had enough and just want to go and play, but we had lots of fun. The girls did fantastically well and it was lovely to see them come out of their shells and enjoy themselves with us. Sybella is a gentle, adoring big sister and Harper is so cheeky she had me giggling throughout the morning. Love it!!! And not to forget mum who did an amazing job of styling their outfits to help the images look simply fabulous!

Congratulations to the family, and good luck managing three teenage girls in a few years time! We hope they love each other as much then as they do now - and if they don't believe that they did then they can just look at the pictures! ;-)
