Bosco the boxer dog

I have to admit that I have a bit of a weakness for dogs with wrinkles! Boxers, pugs, bull mastiffs and Shar Pei’s … anytime I hear that’s the type of dog that a client is bringing I can’t wait to meet them and see those oh-so-expressive faces.

Bosco was no exception, plus he loved squeaky toys, so one squeak and the eyebrows went up and all the forehead wrinkles deepened, love it!

Chinese families

Although I’m not Chinese myself, I have photographed so many babies from families of Chinese descent that I now have quite an understanding of the culture and traditions that surround the birth of a new baby into the family, even when it is a young Chinese couple living in Australia.

As a result I now offer a Chinese Package to facilitate the desire to have newborn photos but the difficulties of how to do that with the 30 day confinement period. For Chinese families I do a pregnancy photo shoot at my studio around the 34 week mark, then when the new baby is born I do a newborn photo shoot at their home in the first 2 weeks, and then another studio photo shoot on the 100th day. I love doing it as I get to have quite a relationship with the parents, and invariably they come back at 8 months and at 1 year so I get to see the baby grow up too.

Double the cuteness

Double the trouble, but also double the cuteness, twins can be a real challenge to photograph. Of course every parent wants gorgeous pictures of the two together, but actually getting them both fed, calm and posed at the same time is really hard.

These two were lovely to work with, the little boy in particular was such an easy going baby and fell asleep at the drop of a hat (even a yellow and blue long tailed stripey one!), his sister was a bit more fussy but we girls are allowed to be fussy!

Happy 10th Birthday Huny!

This beautiful Golden Retriever celebrated her 10th birthday with a photo shoot to mark the auspicious occasion! She’s such a gentle soul, and a very patient one too as she lives with a little fluffy white bundle of energy who jumps all over her, chases her and generally wants to play all day!

My how you’ve grown!

Adelaide Baby PhotosI first photographed this little guy when he was still a baby bump and not even born! Then I did newborn photos of him when he was about 9 days old, and now he’s back this time 8 months old and very pleased with himself that he can sit up unaided.Adelaide Baby Photos

 

 

It’s always a pleasure when my clients come back and I get to photograph the growth stages of their babies, I love to see how they’ve grown and changed over the year, and they are such lovely milestones to capture and treasure the pictures forever.

 

 

I can’t wait for his first birthday when we can add the last photo to this timeline picture.

Glamour, Schnauzers and Cats!

Well this photo shoot took quite a bit of preparation!

Adelaide Pet PhotosFirst of all I needed a dress, but I didn’t want to spend a small fortune on a dress that would never be used again (not having much use for Princess dresses in my life!). So I decide to make one, a very make-shift one! So I dusted off my old sewing machine and got going.

Of course my dogs had to be right next to me all the time, and Molly being the princess that she is, decided that tulle made a great bed for a little doggy!

Finally it was all made and ready for the arrival of my 3 models. We had so much fun doing this shoot, the schnauzer is only 3 months old and the most delightful puppy ever. The cat, well he looks grumpy but that’s just his markings as he’s actually a very laid back, sweet  natured cat (who puts up with daily torment from the puppy!).

Baby Stuff!

P22Well as I haven’t blogged any baby shoots for eons, I thought I’d better do one pronto!

And I’ll start with a fun one, as Adelaide Baby Photos I photograph babies from while they are still a baby bump, when they are newborn, when they can sit up by themselves … usually around 6-8 months and again for their first birthday.

The cake smash photo shoot is a huge hit, the babies have a great time actually being encouraged to play with their food for change! Fun for me  and fun for the parents, and usually all over in about 15 minutes.

This little guy was a bit suspicious of his cake at first, but after he’s had a taste of it he was totally into it!
