I grabbed this shot today while we were at the park for the party, you just got to love reflections, don't you?
This was my daughter's piano recital tonight, not so many kids turned up this month. I'm not surprised, because it is dark and freeeezing outside!
More of this week's photos will follow, its been another nuts-o week, but some delicious images....
It was my little man's 7th birthday today. All my children are precious to me, but when Sammy has a birthday I have to shed a little tear. Y'see he was born with a congential heart defect, Transposition of the Great Arteries, and had to have open heart surgery at 7 days old and spend a month in hospital. He's got a clean bill of health now, but I'm well aware of the struggles he's been through and how extreamly blessed we are to have him with us.
After the surgery.... and chatting with daddy.
These days hanging out with Dad is a lot more fun...
Paul has been from one end of Marlborough to the other for Bayleys in the last few days! From a night shot in the middle of town:
To a helicopter ride that took him right out the Marlborough Sounds. Wanna buy some land in Port Underwood anyone?
And a beautiful house on Rarangi Beach!
This has got to be the shot of the day. I love the hat on the bed!
I've been photographing the Belchers since well before they had such a big brood. We've done quite a bit of stock photography together, and it's an absolute blast seeing their photos turn up all over the place.
Obviously, I'm into the whole Autumn at the park theme right now, so we toodled off to the park for a play. It's not hard getting good shots of these guys, they're not a bad lookin' family :)
I love using this brick wall - and check out the little guy. Ohhhhh, ya just wanna squeeze him!
Thanks for the play guys, we'll do it again soon - a little earlier in the day so the sun doesn't set before we're done throwing the leaves around!
So things have been pretty quiet on the blogging front lately. Not because we're sitting around twiddling our thumbs (do people even twiddle thumbs anymore? I don't think I've seen anyone do that in years....) but more that Paul has been soooo busy shooting and editing, and there just isn't enough hours in the day. The Bayleys book is due out soon, so there's always a last minute rush on real estate. Hopefully things will settle down again soon, and we can catch up with stuff. It's great to be busy though. Mother's day photos still to be done.
Paul grabbed this today at a house shoot. Totally awesome. There's rumour about him going up for more aerial shoots over the weekend, I'm sooo jealous!!
I had the most delicious Mother's Day yesterday. We took the kids to the park, had a nice play in the Autumn leaves and got some fantastic pictures. Now, if you know me, I despise having my photo taken, it makes me break out into a sweat and pull this funny weirdo face. I'm built to be behind the camera, not in front! Having said that though, we got some really nice pictures of me with my short people. Probably the best present of the day!! (chocolate being a very close second, you can never go wrong with chocolate)
I'll upload some of the pics when Paul can stop on the editing computer long enough for me to get it done :)
We've had this job on the backburner for a little while, and are just processing the photos now. As much as I love Autumn images, it's such a wonderful thing to be looking at some warmer weather. A fleeting glimpse of the summer just gone....
It was awesome that we had the opportunity to work with the Spearings, Grandma had come over from England and so it was a good time to get photos done of the whole family together while they were on holiday here in the Marlborough Sounds.
Joan is such a lovely, patient lady. We dragged her from pillar to post, and she always had a smile on her face. Nothing seemed to faze her! I want to be just like her when I grow up.
