On Friday the studio was overflowing with cuteness. Hayley, Lauren & I organised zillions of little people into different outfits to compliment Creative Aertz beautifully made hats. It sounds like chaos, but it actually went really smoothly, with only one child refusing to wear a hat… Of course we photographed him anyway, these pics ended up becoming some of my favorites. HUGE thank-you to everyone who was involved especially those that traveled from Whangarei.. my goodness I had no idea how many of you there was until I checked out your booking forms. I hope you had as much fun as we did & that the kiddies traveled home well.
ANYWHO… here is the START of what is to be a very long blog post, I hope to finish it tomorrow & have everyone’s gallery up where you can each choose two complimentary prints + have the option to purchase additional items at a heavily discounted rate.

BED IN A FOREST, BED IN A FOREST, BED IN A FOREST…. has been in my head for quite sometime.. so I was super excited when Mel from By Nature Bamboo Lingerie approached me about photographing her beautiful range.. it all fitted perfectly.
I cannot tell you how great it felt to be looking through my cameras viewfinder and FINALLY seeing this. Of course the exact location I chose had to be down a steep muddy hill and hubby was busy with the kids that day so we didn’t have any slaves.
This really was a combined effort. Nicole was perfect for the shoot, not only because she is totally gorgeous, and super talented when it comes to interior design (shoot styling) but her parents happen to own Matauwhi Bay Manor with was super ductie as their house is filled with gorgeous antique furniture which we “borrowed”… thanks Nicoles mum.. who also makes very nice curry too.
ANYWAYS.. Hayley did a fab job again on assisting, hair, makeup and most importantly cupcake making duties.
I found the headboard, pressed the shutter and edited – oooh i sound lazy.
Don’t forget to pop on over to By Nature Bamboo Lingerie’s Online Shop for vintagy sleepytime goodness – I love the bloomers… very Katie Perry.

LOVE it when everything just falls into place… this was the case on Saturday. Hayley and I decided to take a “road trip” approach to this shoot.. its a little more us. Hayley found a perfect model in Delaney Mcquoid who looked extra special after Hayley attacked her with her makeup kit. We then jumped in the car and just stopped wherever really (coffee first), I love love loved it.. Delaney did a fantastic, dresses were gorgeous, beautiful accessories AND Hayley’s brain was in sync with mine – perfect perfect day.
HUGE thank-you to Catherine Stoneley for trusting me and letting me run with it… I think I’ve found my calling.
