Here he is yesterday busy at one of his favourite recent pastimes... driving cars through yoghurt (with berry smoothie):
Only a big spoon will do these days, and a big plate... and a big chair. Anything as long as he is just like Daddy. That's great because I was thinking he wasn't enough like Steven already.
We shot the maternity portraits only a couple of weeks before baby Addison arrived (before her due date), and I returned when she was 5 days old to capture her as a tiny new being, so I will blog these photoshoots together.
I'm a recent convert to newborn baby photographs (when I say recent, I should say since Elmer was born!) but now I'm a total sucker for them. I love how you can hold a newborn's whole body in two hands, and how their little hands cling onto yours. I especially love how even though it's hard work, everything seems a little bit magical when there's a new baby in town..
Then just over two weeks later...
Yum. I'll have one of those soon, only a boy version. Speaking of which, my resolution to blog more is suffering only slightly because life is busy with the house. We have 2 months (MAX!) to finish, and Steven is working all hours to get it into a liveable state. Luckily, we have a builder on site part time, and a plumber. I am in charge of extremely important things like ordering tapware... oh and taking Elmer with me when I order the tapware, which is great fun.
I do have a couple of other portrait shoots to blog soon, and I will blog more house photographs as there is progress!
More blogs coming up. I'm on a roll!
After a morning spent at home, we spend the afternoon on the peninsula where we drank tea, ate cake and played on the beach. Getting a photograph of Elmer these days where he isn't mid-flow in conversation about CARS and TRAINS is quite difficult, but being outside helps.. I've included photographs of Steven even though he hasn't had his hair cut.
Oh and the seagull you see on the roof in one image... STOLE our cake! From right infront of us on the table. Very brazen.
Okay, this is the one year I am not going to predict we will be in the house next year. Let's see what happens..
Julia and Cameron live in Tairua on the Coromandel, a world away from Dunedin, but Julia's family are based here, and they planned a beautiful winter wedding in the heart of town. If you're going to get married in winter, you may as well do it properly and it was a COLD, frosty day down here - it would have been all rubbish and mild up north. The ceremony was in First Church, with the reception at the Savoy, the perfect warm winter wedding venue.
Some really gorgeous touches at this wedding. Julia and Cameron had SIX Morris Minors as wedding cars, all in different colours. I loved the black and white stripe theme that ran through the bouquets, the ties, the car ribbons, the church. Julia's amazing 1950s style dress with fur shrug. Highlight of the day though for me was the surprise pre-dinner comedy bingo..
Ahh, gone are the days of the 10 image blog!
