We managed to dodge the rain showers long enough to capture these beautiful memories….. it’s never easy getting extended family all together at the same time and place. This was a very special photoshoot to commemorate a 50 year wedding anniversary.
Renovations and redecorating complete – introducing my gorgeous Maungatapere photography studio, just 10 minutes from Whangarei.
It took a bit of shuffling around of gear, room to room, so the studio could get a well deserved coat of paint and patching up. I am absolutely ecstatic with the results. Lots of thought, pondering and head scratching went into the paint colour – I didn’t realize there were sooo many ‘whites’…. I just wanted a bright white, warm white, but it couldn’t reflect any colour casts. And after my first newborn photoshoot in the studio yesterday – it is PERFECT!
Shortly the carpet will be replaced with wooden flooring… then I can hem the curtains!
This morning this gorgeous little 8 day old baby boy came to my Whangarei studio for his newborn photoshoot, along with his big brother and cousin. This beautiful boy was so sleepy and happy. I was looking forward to meeting him after photographing him as a tiny bump in his mumma’s maternity shoot…. she has the tiniest, cutest little bumps!
His big brother was not quite so keen to join the party and lie down to have his photo taken with his brother, even when his cousin lay down to help… it just wasn’t to be. But with the help of stickers we managed to get a very cute shot of the two boys together.
At just 12 days old this baby girl was a dream to photograph. Born 4 weeks early (as with her brother) she just slept…. gave a little wriggle to get comfy…. then slept some more. She loved being in her Mummy and Daddy’s arms, and barely moved when being cuddled by her big brother. At 4 years old, big brother was the best! He was gentle, did whatever he was asked….. and smiled!
At 13 days old this baby girl was a real dream to photograph. At the start of the session she decided to well and truly christen Dad, luckily he wasn’t too bothered. And after that she slept through everything. Even once we were done she was still sound asleep. Mum said she was a very calm little girl…. and she was right!
