A huge thank you to my gorgeous model, Zoe for braving the freezing cold weather and doing it while looking amazing! She totally rocked this shoot and I can't wait to get her back out for some more dance style shoots.
A huge thank you to the very beautiful Letisha who modelled for me at the Auckland Winter Gardens over the school holidays... It's always fun to be able to get out and shoot without any pressure or requirements... just trying out new poses and working with different light and locations.
Letisha totally rocked the session like a pro (notice her gorgeous makeup and hair done entirely by herself... 100% on point)

Love hanging out with my little friend Rosa and her big brother Georgio... these two always make me smile and the sessions are so much fun... they even got me to show them my flossing dance skills.
Meet little Miss Xanthe... such an ADORABLE little girl with a huge amount of spunk that I just LOVE to photograph.... and that hair... LOVE her hair!
Xanthe is charismatic, loving and so much fun to be around... she knows what she wants and is determine enough to get it... this little girl is going to be a leader one day... a stong, beautiful woman just like her mum.

Meet my little friend Rosalia and her big brother Georgio. These two spunks were SO much fun to be around... pockets full of energy, plenty of laughs, a bit of soccer and some crazy faces... my kinda fun
Here are a few of my favs from this session...
If I had to describe Annaleisa and Trent in 3 words I would say... LAUGHTER, SMITTEN, LOVE and FUN... and yes that was 4 words... I couldnt decide which one to leave out as they are all of those things (and more)
Here are some images we took the other week for their engagement session and catch up. Annaleisa and Trent are so energetic and fun to be around and I cant wait to capture their wedding day for them... ♥

Excited to be sharing this little guys "newborn photography" debut on the blog today! This little guy was super alert and just wanted to stay awake. He did give us some good moments in between allowing us to pose him slightly but I'm not complaining... I got LOTS of baby snuggles during this session!... and even more special is that this little babe is one of my amazing friends newest addition to her beautiful growing family... so plenty more baby cuddles to come ♥
Meet Owen... 5 days perfect
A little change of pace here on the blog since wedding season has ended but its nice to slow life down and breathe in the fresh air...
Sharing some lifestyle maternity shots of my gorgeous friend, Juanita. When I heard that Juanita was pregnant I couldn't have been more excited for her... Not only is she a beautiful friend but she totally rocks as a mum and her growing family is a perfect example of that.
