Eve's 18 months!

Today my beautiful baby girl is 18 months old! Eve is such a beautiful, vibrant, cheeky little trouble maker. It's amazing how opposite she and her big sister are, but we wouldn't have it any other way! 

To mark the occasion we spent a quick 20 minutes in the studio capturing the girls as they are, one loving life in a tutu and twirling like a princess, and one trying to eat a bubble stick.

(I don't know if other photographers get this but I find my own kids by far the most challenging to photograph ;-))

Love you to the moon and back my beautiful girls xxx

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 :-)

Carli & Shae's Ocean Inspired Wedding @ Aqua Resort Busselton

We knew Carli and Shae's wedding was going to be a cool day. This pair from Dongara have travelled all over the world and have an ongoing love affair with the ocean, so it was perfectly fitting for them to have a destination wedding on the beach. They picked an awesome spot for it too, with Aqua Resort Busselton providing a gorgeous backdrop to a beautiful day. 

Getting ready, Shae was a picture of laid back relaxation, while Carly prepared with a bit more nervous excitement. For the ceremony Shae respected his Maori heritage by wearing a tribal cloak, and the emotion was almost overwhelming as they said their vows and became husband and wife. 

Before the reception we whisked the bridal party off to the Tuart Forest and Busselton jetty to have some fun with their photoshoot, before heading back to the beautifully styled marquee in the gardens at Aqua to celebrate into the night. 

Daring to be a bit different, these two lovebirds swapped their engagement portrait for a Trash the Dress session after the wedding, which they chose to do underwater!

You can check out that experience HERE, but in the meantime enjoy the photography we captured at their beautiful wedding. Thanks for sharing your day with us Carli and Shae we loved being there to celebrate with you all!
