Smash that Cake!

Earlier this year, we were engaged for our first ever smash-cake photo session. Excuse our ignorance, we'd never even heard of such a thing! Undaunted by visions of icing and cream all over our lenses we turned up to the ever-charming Mavis's Kitchen on Mount Warning Road. The garden and the weather were picture perfect and the whole family were so lovely and welcoming. We had some delicious afternoon tea together, a stroll through the garden, then onto the main event. Even though Mum (we were asked not to use their real names) had her vision of smash cake heaven, she was still very relaxed, knowing that life with little ones is always unpredictable. After some coaxing the birthday one got stuck into that gorgeous apricot coloured cake with assistance from her older brother. Here are some of our favourites below. So now we are no longer smash-cake virgins, feel free to invite us to your next birthday party!

A family gathering at Fingal Head

We were thrilled when Diane from Brisbane contacted us to photograph her family's Mothers Day camping get-together at Fingal Head. They turned out to be a really loving and fun bunch: the parents, five offspring and their partners and six gorgeous grand-daughters under the age of 6! So it was a busy two hours chasing gorgeous moments and the beautiful fading light. Would so love to do this every week!

Family portraits down in Geelong

Time to catch up on some news! Back in March we flew down to Geelong to do a series of family portrait sessions for a client. She needed a range of photos of clients from her chiropractic clinic to use on her website. The ones I’ve included here are not necessarily the ones used for that, but are some of our favourites. If you’d like to see the website or if you need a brilliant chiropractor just have a look.

Three red-heads plus Mum

Little Jeremy came into the world several weeks premature, but he’s certainly going great-guns now. This was our second session with him and the third with his family. A picnic rug in their backyard under the flowering jacaranda made the perfect relaxing setting. A few grizzles (from Jeremy not Alan) were followed by a very photogenic nap, then loads of smiles and fun with his brother. the last few were taken under the house and had a completely different feel to them.

Childhood

For quite a while I had been wanting to photograph Jasper. His sensitivity and quiet self-confidence and slightly puckish appearance fascinate me - and I wanted to catch that time where he still has a lot of the child in him, while the teenager and future man is starting to appear. While Jasper and I explored the creeks and special trees on their farm, Alan took photos of the girls and though it was a playful shoot we were pleased with those photos too. Here are some of our favourites:
