Christina and Blake's maternity session

Christina and Blake met in Kindergarten when they were five. They were high school sweet hearts and finally ended up getting married two years ago, after being together for nine years. They couple are expecting their first child - a baby boy - and he will be the first grand child on both sides so his birth is highly anticipated. His name will be Kaleb. They chose this name because it uses all the same letter's of his daddy's name, just scrambled. I love that - it is like naming your son after the father, but none of the complications with mixed up mail or not knowing which one you are talking about. So cute.




Congratulations Christina and Blake - wishing you much luck with the birth xxxx

Baby Cruz

In June, Alexandria, Thomas and Savannah's family tree grew once again when the welcomed Baby Cruz Thomas. For three years, it was just the three of them, and they couldn't have imagined it getting any better, but Cruz proved them wrong by filling the house with even more love. As this is the second baby, Alexandria and Thomas knew how quickly they grow from needy babies into independent little people. They cherish each day with their little baby boy and were delighted to capture those precious newborn moments with big sister Savannah.


The family were thrilled when the doctor told them they would be having a boy, for they knew Savannah was going to love having a brother. They just hope Cruz can keep up with her. Her parents love to watch the way she interacts with Cruz, and as each day passes, she grows fonder of her baby brother. When Savannah came to the hospital to meet Cruz, her first question was whether the baby was a boy or a girl. When they told her the baby was a boy, she started to cry and asked for him to be a girl. A couple of days later, she asked if they could pretend that Cruz was a girl. I think by the time of the shoot though, she was proud to be the big sister of a baby brother and was a delightful cuddler with him.



This series here are so simple and so beautiful - I love the leaves. Alexandria had brought some bay grape leaves, but they were too bulky and didn't lay flat, so I popped out to the garden and cut these and I am smitten with the results.



Thank you all for such a sweet shoot - I know the two littles are going to keep you very busy and bring you much joy so congratulations on your new family of four status. xxx

Maria, Simon, Sophia & Sally

Maria and Simon have lived in Bermuda for seven years now and love the beauty of the island and especially the beaches. Although Simon is not a fan of the sand, and as a result they tend to go out on the boat on the weekends, he agreed to a beach shoot with the kids. The last time photographed the family, Sophia was only just a year old and so they have been wanting to do a shoot ever since little Sally was born. Since both girls were born in Bermuda (but half Swedish), and the know they will be living back in the UK one day in the future, they decided these beach photos are a nice keepsake to remember their childhoods on the island.



Sophia and Sally are so sweet together and adore each other (most of the time!). They are just getting to the right age to play well together. Sally is usually the little monkey of the family and copies everything her big sister does - good and bad things. They had a sweet little tea party with cups and saucers and flowers and fairy wings - nothing better.

Next they were given yummy cupcakes!

While Sophia was nicely posing, and then I was getting a great shot of the darling signage, I didn't even notice was cheeky little Sally was up to!

Not sure if she thought the icing was suncream, or if she just wanted to slather herself in icing, but either way, it was hysterical. Apparently she usually hates having dirty hands so her mummy was very surprised.
