Wednesday 27 August 2014


It has been a big week in our house, our 'baby' girl turned 3, and she started kindy. She very proudly came into my room this morning, backpack on - including her water bottle, ready to go. Such a cute little thing! I remember when my son started kindy, I cried all the way to kindy and all the way back.  When you get to your 3rd child, it's part of the routine.  Don't get me wrong, it's still a big deal, and it does tug at my heart a bit, I'm just not so emotional. Of course, I was there, camera in hand capturing her first day.  She is a very confident little girl, and I am so proud of her.  (I guess you have to be confident with two older brothers)


I'd love to hear from other mothers, what was your experience leaving your little ones at kindergarten?


Have a wonderful week everyone, and a relaxing weekend!

What a gorgeous day in Auckland today! It's not too cold, the Jasmine is blooming, and we're slowly moving into spring.


In between editing orders I have been working hard at building my dream website (still a work in progress), also, I've been in contact with an awesome guest blogger who is interested in guest blogging on here twice a month or so.  More on this later :) And tomorrow is the most important girl in my life's 3rd Birthday! I can't believe how fast my baby is growing up.


But, enough of me, I wanted to share some images of the beautiful Barkhuizen kids. I did this photo session a while back in Birkenhead Domain.  I'll be doing a Spring mini session there in October, so be sure to check back in for further details at the end of September!


I have been photographing these kids fore the past 4 years, and it has been so special seeing them grow up!  They have always been amazing models, and I consider their stunning mom to be one of my closest friends.  Sadly (For me at least), they moved to Australia earlier this month.  This is the last photo session I did for them in NZ.  I'm hoping to go visit them in the near future and getting some shots of Little Trav Surfing the waves off the Australian  coast.

Have a beautiful week everyone, and thank you all for ready my blog!
