Sheina Turns 1!

 Last Sunday I had the pleasure of attending  Sheina's first birthday party. It was a wonderful time for all. There was the "Zoo that comes to you" with lizards and other reptiles. The kids had no fear, it was the adults hiding at the back who were making faces ;)  There was also face painting, a crafts table- and of course an amazing array of food. The cake was absolutley beautiful, as were the decorations. The perfect party for a princess.  This little girl is so loved! She has 35! Godparents (yup, count 'em)  and a ton of cousins to play with. You can see how much her parents adore her, and her sweet personality can fill a room, even at one year old!
 Happy Birthday Sheina!

Lim Family

Once again, I had the opportunity to do a session with the Lim family. This time, it was the entire extended family. We did 2 parts, one more formal shots at the house, and then some more casual ones in a nearby park. Shooting with an entire extend family, especially with small children, is a toughie. So many shots I thought I had nailed, when I blew them up I discovered one child or another was always making faces, lol. It is hard to shoot large posed group shots, and co-ordinate everyone, especially kids. Still, we had loads of fun at the park, climbing trees and playing in the flowers. The weather couldn't have been better, and the park made for a pretty background. This family seems very close, and I think it is fantastic that all the kids will have a great support group of cousins, as their parents did. It is always a pleasure to work with the Lim family, they are extremely welcoming and sweet. Here are some of the shots from our latest session.
