We started with some family photos and finished with one messy baby. Tina & Derek, it was great to meet you, enjoy your sneak peek.

Sara, Havana & family enjoy your sneak peek.
If you follow my blog photos then you would have seen Ava previously for her newborn photo session and then again more recently for her 6-9 month session. She is now almost one and she had an absolute ball with her cake today, It took a little while for her to warm up to it, but when she did she was giggling to herself whilst trying to shove handfuls of cake in her month. It was so so funny to watch. Rebecca, as always, it was great to see you. Enjoy your sneak peek.

Siobhan is almost one and adorable as ever! This is the third time I have photographed her, the first being her newborn session (viewable here) and then her 6-9 month session (viewable here). Siobhan and her older sister 2.5 year old Asher have the most stunning eyes, I could just look at them all day. Siobhan’s mum organised the beautiful cake from Swan Valley Cakes, and it went down a treat!
Wow Ethan has grown into such a gorgeous little boy, I met him as a newborn and he was just a cute then. Ethan was smiling for me from the beginning, although not long after the cake was put in front of him, he decided he wasn’t all that interested in it, he just wanted to crawl away! I was lovely seeing you again Michelle, Enjoy your sneak peek.

Meet Poppy who turned one today, this is an extra special milestone for her and her family. Poppy is a very special little girl, she has been through so much in her first year of life, This is her story.
When she was 5 and a half months of age, she was diagnosed with Dilated Cardiomyopathy (heart failure), she was resuscitated on a couple of occasions and was put into an induced coma, spending 40 days in ICU at PMH. Poppy’s parents, Jessie & Jordan were told to expect the worst, so when the medical staff said Poppy’s heart was strong enough to come out of her coma, that was an incredible step forward. Poppy then became well enough to move out of ICU, and then finally after 54 days at PMH Jessie & Jordan were told Poppy was well enough to go home. Poppy put up the fight of her life and she WON!
Jessie, did not leave Poppy’s side and even to this day she is never far from Poppy, she stayed in the armchair next to Poppy for 54 days at PMH, Jessie & Jordan were given a room at PMH so Jordan was able to get some sleep there, so both Poppy’s parents were there with her the whole time. She is a very special girl whom has very special parents and today I witnessed such a incredibly beautiful bond between Jessie and her baby girl Poppy. Jordan has gone back to fly in fly out work now that Poppy is well so I missed out on catching up with him today. Jessie tells me, she could not have done this without her mum whom stopped working to be able help & support them, cooking meals and doing the laundry to name a few things, enabling Jessie to stay at Poppy’s bedside.
I first meet Jessie & Jordan when I photographed their maternity session whilst they were expecting Poppy (viewable here) and then again of course when Poppy was only 7 days old for her newborn photo session (viewable here). I am so glad to be able to tell you that Poppy’s heart is now almost back to 100% health and her doctors do not expect any other occurrences which is amazing considering what her tiny little body went through.
Jessie, thank you so much for sharing your story with me today and thank you for allowing me to share it was my website visitors. Your strength, determination & love is so inspiring. I truly wish Poppy all the very best in her long and happy future.
Enjoy your sneak Peek!!

Well, she made myself and her parents, Deirdre & David work very hard to get her smiling and we just could not quite get her there today, she missed her morning sleep so she was a bit on the tired side. But just take a look at her gorgeous face, she doesn’t need to smile to get a beautiful photo.

Meet 1 year old Lewis, his big sister Sophia and his parents Laura & Shaun. They visited the studio for family photo’s and lewis’ cake smash.

He made us all laugh while he was almost shovelling cake into his mouth meanwhile Laura’s picturing the afternoon with a caked up child! We did manage to drag him away from the cake but he wasn’t happy about it. Laura & Shaun, your children are totally adorable, thank you for visiting the studio and sharing them with me.
The gorgeous Asher is returning for her special cake smash session, she is 1 in a couple of weeks and mum Urshula organised a special cake to be made to go with her Winnie the Pooh theme, so of course the cake was a hunny pot and it looked amazing, it seemed such a shame to smash the cake. Here’s a look at some of the photos.
Lucy is back in the studio again, this time for her cake smash session. Her mum Nicole (a very close friend of mine) chose to have the cake decorated in yellow frosting, it’s the first time i’ve done a yellow one and it looked great. Lucy loves little yellow duckies and that is the theme of her 1st birthday party coming up in a few weeks. Lucy was not the happiest little girl on the day of her session and really wasn’t interested in cake, but with a bit of coaxing we were able to get some great photo’s. Here are some from her session.
