i had the pleasure of photographing my lovely cousin today. she and her mother (my aunty) just arrived last night for a holiday here :) isn't she lovely? she has the cutest chubby cheeks still, and huge eyes!

i like the last few as a series.... ... she was telling me a joke when i took them....

that's all folks.... i'd better get some sleep now so i can entertain this hyperactive little one tomorrow!

i'd say i'm a hopeless romantic - a victim of one too many "romcom" movies where two perfect strangers serendipitously meet and fall in love...... *happy sigh*... :)

i've also been told that my mind is constantly "off with the fairies" in some kind of "fantasy land" where everything is beautiful and things just happen to fall into place easily and happily. This can be detrimental, because when reality turns out to be, well, just that - reality, it tends to disappoint me......

these traits have at times been a 'curse' but i'd prefer to view them as a blessing from now on.... because it's what helps me strive to create beautiful, heartfelt portraits of two people so deeply in love with one another.... (i did warn you that i'm a hopeless romantic....!) like the one above.

That's probably why i'm so eager to be a part of the wedding/engagement/children photography industry.... because there's just so much love and happiness involved. How could anyone not want to capture a part of that magic!?

Just one more that i love from the shoot i did with my friends children..... i love how his little cheek is squished against mums shoulder... he had just woken up from his nap..... :)


It was an amazing day.

My friend managed not to get lost on the way to picking up our model (hoorah for guys and their innate ability for good direction! :). We drove until we reached our desired location and made our way to a section further inland by foot. Just as we reached the spot where we wanted to shoot, it started to rain! In this regard the photoshoot didn't really go as planned. But alas we did not let that stop us. We persevered. And the outcome turned out to look beautiful, fresh and moody.

Rain, Hail or shine, the spontaneity is what makes each shot different and unique. Learning to make the most of each situation is exciting and challenging..... the more i shoot, the more i love it!

I'm thankful for my friend who allowed me to follow him on this shoot, and although i mainly helped him set up his gear and lighting i learned a lot and managed to quickly grab the following shots.....
