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 🙂
The WordPress.com 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.
Congratulations to Kaley and Anthony on their wedding on Sunday June 3 2012.
A garden wedding, photos on the beach and all with the most amazing weather and sunset. It looks tropical!
Beautiful photos for a beautiful couple … … …
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 … …
Teenagers + Camera = Photo shoot … …
Gotta love having willing photography objects – cheers guys for that 😉
On Saturday 3rd December 2011, the students from Whaingaroa Youth Movement had their annual dance show. This year the show was in Wainui Reserve in the gardens. Once again Patti and her students (all girls this year again) put on a show to be proud of. From cute little 5 year old ‘pukeko’ to the seniors who were the ‘wahine’. There was a huge turn out this year of family and friends all sitting on picnic blankets under the trees eating their picnics, sipping wine, chatting and laughing with each other. Music was floating all around the park as we were all entertained by our tamariki. There were even a pair of ‘seagulls’ entertaining us from high up in the sky (two very talented circus performers displaying their ribbon climbing skills!)
Thank you Patti and all the members of the Whaingaroa Youth Movement for your dedication and amazing talents to make your entire community proud. This is a gift that our children will carry on through their lives, to be able to stand tall, move gracefully and dance in tune to life’s beat XXX
On Saturday two wonderful people made their union official. With Lily and Matilda watching their Mamma and Pappa they proclaimed their love for each other and promised that they were in for the long haul … …
Here’s to you two … … Rock on guys!!!!
