The McConaghy Family!

I had another great shoot with a growing family! The last time I saw the McConaghy's was to photograph Maia when she was just a few weeks old, now she is over 2!! Little James, the newest addition to the family was a little over-whelmed by the experience and seemed more intrigued about what was going on around him. Getting him to smile was challenging to say the least! Nevertheless his older sister provided much entertainment even though she did not want to share the limelight with her little brother! Here are some photos from their shoot.

The Beck Family

Once again, I had the pleasure of photographing the Beck family as Chloe turns 1...well almost! It just seems like last month I was being introduced to the newest addition to this family and doing her newborn photos. Time really does fly by!
We had some lovely sunshine and the girls seemed to love their time out and about. Chloe's big sister Maia (who by now is very used to being photographed by me) settled right into the shoot and couldn't resist giving Chloe "big sister hugs" (more like around the neck strangulation shows of affection!) at any opportunity when  they were sat together! As for little Chloe, she came into her own and gave the most delightful smiles showing off her new teeth! Happy Birthday for next month Chloe - I hope your day is as special as you are!

The Miracle of Life!

I was so privileged to photograph little Rafferty, a true miracle of life. He was born at just 26 weeks and spent the first few months fighting every day to stay alive. Amazingly, he has overcome all obstacles that life has thus far thrown at him and at a healthy 10 months old (or 7 months in real time!), he is an absolute treasure!
His first photo shoot was a little overwhelming and I think he was rather confused as to what was going on but he settled in like a champ! Again, another tough customer when it came to getting some smiles out of him but again so rewarding when you did get one!

Rafi was joined by his Mom, Granddad and Gran - a lucky little boy, a born this space world as here comes Rafferty!

Millie...5 months on!

Five months on and little Millie has grown into the cutest little girl! As with her first shoot, Millie seemed to enjoy herself although, being a little more aware of her surroundings (and full of a nasty cold) she proved a tough customer to get some smiles out of! Her older brother Max was as delightful as ever - another great family shoot with hopefully some photos that they can cherish!

Introducing Ana!

Gorgeous little Ana, only 5 weeks old came to have her photos taken last week. Her older brother, Alexi who I photographed when he was Ana's age, took to the photo shoot like a duck to water but was more concerned with the lights than actually posing with his sister!
So, we let Alexi have some fun and with a little persuasion and some patience, we eventually managed to get him to share the limelight with his sister! Ana was an absolute darling throughout the shoot and I am sure is going to grow up to be as cute as her older brother!

Here are some photos from their session.

Baby Daisy!

I had the absolute pleasure of meeting and photographing 8 month old Daisy on the weekend. She was just too gorgeous for words. I was completely drawn to her beautiful blue eyes and dark lashes...every girl's dream! She seemed to be quite intrigued by the photo shoot and took a little coaxing to get some smiles. A little like gambling, once you have won once, it is hard not to keep trying - that is what it was like with Daisy's smiles - once she had smiled at you once you had to try harder to get another smile!
A definite baby advert model, well I think so! Here are some photos from her session.
