Can i just say that i fell in love with this family’s home and backyard, and also with their little 4 month old boy, he was delightful.. After having twins i really am not a clucky person but today i could have easily taken this little one for ages and kept on playing with him.  He was full of smiles and the parents were just smitten with him.. After spending an hour with him i can see why. Hope you enjoy your sneak peak .. Tanya

The lovely Nadene from my old playgroup approached me with an  offer to do a mothers day shoot, i decided to do super mini mini shoots, 10 mins per child and do a storyboard of each child for mothers day.. here is the tuesday playgroup kids, they were so varied in age as well as looks, some were super busy, others were quite content to sit and let me take their photos, others made me work for it, one little chap had me running around in circles trying to catch his infectious smile , i was worn out and it was only 9.30, i still had 2 more hours to go..  but i loved it, hope you enjoy your sneak peak girls.. Stay tuned for the wednesday playgroup shoot yet to come…

I have never been surrounded by so many little girls at once, 8 of them in the one mothers group, all so very different and very unique.. This was hilarious, i did super super mini 10 minute shoots of each baby, so not to take up too much of their party time, then at the end we had a free for all in the ball pit.. Had a great time and thanks again for allowing me to crash your 1st birthday party, i still can’t get over that amazing house and the amazing display of food.. Hope you enjoy your sneak peak.  Tanya

 The host of the  party, a real party girl once we got her in the ball pit, love these clapping hands.

 

dankia mothers group 16 of 1 1024x682 a mothers group 1st birthday shoot with 8 little girls...

These girls with blue eyes, how amazing are these ones, i took this little ones photos 6 months ago and she has really grown up heaps…

 

dankia mothers group 3 of 1 682x1024 a mothers group 1st birthday shoot with 8 little girls...

I love this little coy smile.  This one was definitely the  most animated, i have so many different facial expressions of her..

 

dankia mothers group 14 of 1 1024x682 a mothers group 1st birthday shoot with 8 little girls...

A real gentle spirit this one, she was so hard to get to smile that it took her poor mum to do star jumps behind me to finally win her over.. but we got there in the end.

 

dankia mothers group 5 of 1 1024x682 a mothers group 1st birthday shoot with 8 little girls...This ones dad knew how to get the smiles out of her, bouncing her up and down did the trick, again amazing eyes…

 

dankia mothers group 7 of 1 1024x682 a mothers group 1st birthday shoot with 8 little girls...This little one was by far the easiest to get to smile, in fact she posed the entire time, not that i minded.  She reminded me of a  cu pi doll..

 

dankia mothers group 15 of 1 682x1024 a mothers group 1st birthday shoot with 8 little girls...

Love these chocolate eyes, and such a cheeky sneaky smile at the sides of her mouth..

 

dankia mothers group 8 of 1 1024x682 a mothers group 1st birthday shoot with 8 little girls...I still cannot get over this ones eyes, you may recognize her from my flash header on my blog, they are the most incredible blue eyes i have ever seen.. 

dankia mothers group 10 of 1 1024x682 a mothers group 1st birthday shoot with 8 little girls...Almost got  all of them looking at the camera!!

dankia mothers group 12 of 1 1024x682 a mothers group 1st birthday shoot with 8 little girls...Thanks guys for having me, i really had fun…
