… Terri + Jacob + Brilee = Gorgeous Family …

I love nothing more than a family photo shoot on the beach – especially when the family has somebody as special and gorgeous as wee Brilee.  

Had a lovely time before Christmas on Raglan’s skate bowl beach capturing these memories for this wonderful new whanau … … Cheers guys 🙂

2012 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 1,900 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 3 years to get that many views.

Playing with the shutter … … …

New Years Eve … just before their party.  This has got to be the best time to make your models pose while you play around with the camera settings and the shutter speed.  

Thank you to Brittany, Kate and Emily for your patience.  

These are now officially known as the “Ghost Pics”

Sunset @ the beach … …

The first bit of sunshine for 2012 – so it was a walk on the beach with the my husband and the dog.  At the mouth of the Whaingaroa Harbour there is a rock that appears periodically when the sea washes the sand away.  When Britt was a toddler we used to come swim here at Elephant Rock.  Now she is 15 and it is back again like it was then.  The raw beauty and force of nature leaves me spellbound and in awe.

You just have to love where you live … … and we do … …
