Emily’s Cake Smash | Brisbane Children Photography

Gorgeous little Emily came to see me with her Mum Sarah-Rose in early December to organize her cake smash for her 1st Birthday on 23 December. I haven’t been able to share until now as it was a surprise for the party guests to see her collage on the day of her party.

Little Emily didn’t have the best start to the day as she was hospitalized with high temps in the early hours of the morning she was due to see me. However as most children do she recovered like a trooper and loved smashing her cake. She only needed a small kip in the middle of it all and was ready to go again. I think her Mum had slightly more cake in her than Emily, but hey that’s what we Mum’s do for our kids 🙂

Cake Smash Session | Purple Fun| Brisbane Childrens Photography

Ah, purple, my favourite colour. Another fun Cake Smash was had last week when Isabelle and her parents came to visit me. Isabelle loved her purple owl cake and couldn’t wait to get her hands on it!

During the session my 17yo cat, Skye, wandered out to see what was going and that was enough for Isabelle to take off after her, not once but pretty much every time we put her back next to the cake. We had purple icing from one end of the house to the other, lol. But this is why I hold them in my home studio so you don’t have to worry about all that cleaning up 🙂

Cake Smash Session | Cute Little Yenuli | Brisbane Childrens Photography

Gorgeous little Yenuli turned 1 last weekend and just before she did we had a great little cake smash session for her. Yenuli was a little apprehensive at first but after she tasted that sweet butter icing on her cake from Custom Cake Designs she found the confidence to smash her cake 🙂 I think she enjoyed every little bit of it.  What do you think?

Brisbane Newborn Photography | Little Henry

Now I told you Spring had sprung for Honey Bee Photography this year, so meet little Henry who I had the pleasure to photograph in Newmarket last month. He was the son of a dear friend who my family used to car pool with to primary school. Believe me this was a very long time ago (for me)! Melanie, Henry’s mum is a little bit younger than I and her Big sister Jane and I used to do Jazz Ballet during our lunch hours at primary school!  Oh, the memories I have spending time with this beautiful family who are now all adults and leading wonderful fulfilling lives. Thank you Melanie for allowing me to capture your precious memories of Henry.

This photo session was a special one for me as little Rhys is my newest nephew. His big brother Evan had a lot of fun with me and turned out to be quiet the little model 🙂

It’s great to be able to capture such a special time in your families and any families life.

Brisbane Newborn Photography | The O’Neills

Such a gorgeous family, I had the pleasure to photograph recently. Michelle and Terry had just welcomed baby Harrison into their family and he was fitting in very nicely. I have to say though, new big sister Phillipa stole the show 🙂

Meet the newest member to the Kavanagh family | Brisbane Family Photography

Well Spring is here and it has certainly become a newborn season for Honey Bee Photography, with 5 newborn sessions recently. I ‘d like to share the first of those with you today.

About 3 weeks ago I had the pleasure to photograph the newest edition to the Kavanagh family.

Little Ebony, just 15 days old, was just beautiful and with her new Big sister Elisha, was a delight to photograph as was the whole family. As expected it can be a little messy when photographing naked newborns and when taking the photo with Daddy showing his new Ebony tattoo, she didn’t disappoint 🙂 You we’re very brave Aaron and took it all in your stride!

Thank you for having me in your home to capture this precious time for you.
