Six weeks it has been a little quiet,

being fulltime at home with Mr. almost 4

was a rollercoaster to describe it the best.

A lot of debating, he has some big opinions!!

Would you like to know what a water loving, high energy pre-schooler, who has not seen the surf beach for then almost 6 weeks is thinking about?

One minute he was still standing- then ran for the hills

Well he carefully selects a rock...

He then climbs the perfect rock, most likely the one with the deepest rockpool around it!

and pushes off, with all his little bundle energy bursting

With his Dad wearing shoes( on the beach?!) and myself having the camera round my neck( lucky on a camera strap)- we all do know that sand and saltwater are not the friends of any photographers gear!!

He carries on jumping his round through puddle after puddle, rock after rock until...

..he really chooses a deep waterhole!

..he really chooses a deep waterhole!

Three quaters deep standing in said waters- shaking like a leaf- after all it was a southerly gust blowing,

decides it would be a great waterhole to carry out missed swim lessons and sings full volume the song of Tiny Turtle

Meanwhile his Dad and I try to convince him to get out

That must have been one hillarious scene to watch and once again, I am gutted that there is never a photographer near when I would need to have my special Life moments captured

I think it got a bit chilli after all

Remember that moment when you bring your new baby home?

That new baby smell :) dont miss a blink, a smile? a burp, a yawn?!

Join me on my last family photo session, that brought my baby memories back too!

loading...

what do I need to pack? how long does it take? does it fit in with feeding times/ sleeping times/....

does the new baby have siblings and you need to juggle them too...

All questions that Cynthia did not need to worry about, only what kind of images (poses and probs) she would like to work through

Sneak into a family photo session of four weeks old baby girl Indigo and her two siblings Lincoln and Ruby 

-in the comfort of their house!

NO stress to get all kids and all needed in the car, just a very calm and happy mum!

We created a short list of photo poses that Cynthia liked

Including a very cute new Baby Bed I had brought along - we had hoped the little miss would fit still-

-she did not 

just how fast they grow in four weeks!

We swapped to the basket instead, Indigo was wide awake watching what was happening around her...

Ruby and Lincoln however had gotten bored watching mum discussing the next Images with me

Indigo, Ruby and Lincoln - lounge location, excited to get started-

...whilst Cynthia was dressing Indy in another outfit- we just took a few headshots 

both kids got to hold the reflector for each other and were active included in the shoot:)

sorry I ran out of space to show all of the goofy images too- but it was so much fun!

just how easy is it to change outfits, attend to all childrens needs as to your own

and 

take your time cruising through an afternoon photosession.

Even if you do book just a set amount of time- there is always the option to take advantage of spare add on time.

And it was so worth to take that extra time!
