Being confronted by a ferocious beast called rambo and being pee'd on by a little person called Julian, all part of a days work - who said photography was a walk in the park?
Isn't he just gorgeous? This little munchkin belongs to Elizabeth and Grant.
It was well worth it though - this is what I got before the floodgates opened up!
The 'blog ink' has yet to dry on a statement I've been repeating for quite some time now, since these days I hardly get the chance to photograph anything but weddings and then, BAAAM, my blog is once again filled with bellies and babies. . . statement shattered!
So here you are, more babies. As I regularly state, the undertaking of any newborn/maternity shoots is usually consigned to the do-not-have-a-chance abyss, so this was really more of a favour to one of DH's colleagues at work - and the words "twin boys" was the absolute deal-maker ;-)
Introducing the two little crackers - Sashin and Khayen.
A wedding post in the next couple of days I promise!
As an introduction, Sam was originally employed to simply help out with the housework and children - the term simply being the epitome of understatement.Any how, when she started with us, Sam hadn't yet acquired the opportunity to use a computer, let alone master a monster like Photoshop.
Well, two years down the line, Sam is now very proficient with the computer - not only does she skilfully use Photoshop, she also assists me with the editing of photos and designing albums.
It was not at all easy giving away my first digital SLR (almost like your first car with all the treasured memories), but, I that did and Sam now has her very own camera, which has, in turn, also taken a step further in the creation of her own individual blog - say no more!
Any way, and coming back to this blog entry, a year ago, Cyndi kindly agreed to a third-shooter at her wedding, which allowed Sam the occasion to shoot her very first wedding.
Following this (and maybe on account of it), Cyndi then contacted me in March to say she was pregnant and wanted some pictures of the new arrival - little Imke.
This was yet another perfect opportunity for Sam to tackle her first, non-understudy newborn shoot - and, for this event, I was the assistant! Sam, I am so proud of you and here are a few of your humble assistant's favourites from the shoot...the gorgeous Imke.

Firstly WELCOME to the newer and bigger blog!
A crazy weekend and an equally crazy week ahead, with the arrival of Santa bloke on Wednesday evening.
I have not managed to take on too many maternity, or newborn, shoots this year, as I haven't had the time.
Last week, however, I photographed Jenny and her little belles, Zoë and Eva.
So very small and squishy....they just melted my heart, having that "puppy smell" effect where you just want to hug them tight and sneak them home in your camera bag!
So, without further ado, I give you Baby Zoë and Baby Eva.
