What makes a great family portrait?

Having fun is right at the top of the list!

Early on Christmas Eve I met up with a fantastic family for a family portrait session in the park - it was the perfect way to kick off the holiday season. Little Amber has a huge personality and she made sure that there was a enough fun for everyone! 

She even popped up when I wasn't expecting her!

She stole the show with her unbelievable energy and I just adore her attitude in the image below!

Thank you to the whole family, all the girls for being absolutely gorgeous, Dad for being very handsome and so patient and little Amber for adding that little extra spark! It was a great morning out!

Oooohhh and look at that, I have managed to do two blog posts in two weeks! If only you could see the happy dance I am doing!

'Til next week,

Bye bye 2011 - hello 2012!

Well, here we are in 2012 and didn't last year just fly by so quickly? As is the custom, I have made some New Year Resolutions and one of them is to update my blog at least once a week - the poor thing has become so neglected!

There has been so much happening over the past few months, we have had the honour of photographing some beautiful, newborns and babies, gorgeous maternity portraits, fun filled kids sessions and of course our super popular Santa's Workshop.

This year our Santa's Workshop sessions ran over 4 days and we had 137 super energetic kids of all ages come to visit. Our oldest was 14 and our littlest was just one month was incredibly good fun and fantastic to see some of our kids that come along every year (they just grow so much!!) as well as some new faces come along to enjoy Santa's Workshop. My singing skills are improving every year (LOL) and I just love it when mum's will sing and dance with me! Some of our mum's should be on the stage they are so good!

Santa was thrilled that all the kids he saw were on his good list - even after checking it twice - and was getting busy to deliver on all the things the kids asked for this Christmas...not sure how the little boy that wanted an aeroplane - "No, Santa, a REAL one!!!" got on though! Santa also received a collection of dummies that some of our brave kids gave him to give to the baby reindeer...hopefully the lolly filled gift bags filled the void for a little while.

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and I wish everyone a fantastic New Year with good health, happiness and abundance for 2012. And look at that, so far this year I have managed to write a blog post once a week! Here's our Santa's Workshop Portrait Session video for 2011 - enjoy!
