I am so...

EXCITED! I am a Nienie fan and have always loved the photos she gets done of her family. Her photgraphers are this amazing couple. I am not a photographer so don't quite know what I love about their photos, but I love them. They are so vibrant and alive.

Anyway. This couple travels (see where I am going? Yippee!)....

And are in Auckland NEXT WEEKEND. I booked a session with them last November and I have been getting more and more excited ever since. It cost a lot, more than I have admited to Dida- but Meg reckons I got a good deal. And she should know being a talented photographer and all.

So we are ready! The outfits are all chosen- not to matchy-matchy but co-ordinated. I am a designer after all and can't help myself. The heads are all cut/ styled and , in my case, coloured. The bribes for small people are planned. The only fly in the ointment was pointed out to me by Dida- we need to somehow keep Rupi out of the sea as the shoot is on a beach and he is utterly  slightly obsessed with swimming.

Nevermind! Nothing can stop us having fun and having some shots of a wet child can only add to the beauty (I think!). Only 5 more sleeps!

How AWESOME!!!!!! I really want to do something like that too.... but $$$$$ Maybe next year I will be brave enough to fork out for it!

Have a Baker's delight voucher for you :) Can pop it in the post if you flick me your addy, or give it to you next time I see you (I should have brought it to church this morning! I'm a silly one!)

Yay so excited for you! Hey just an idea (from experience) don't tell the kids that they can have an ice cream (or lolly or whatever) once they've done the photos. They'll spend the whole session posing and demanding their treat, and they'll think that the photos are something they need to endure. Tell them that you'll just be going to have lots of fun together. I know your two are little so it'll be lovely to capture them at this stage.

So I know we talked about this last weekend, but I had no idea who the blogger you were talking about was, or the photographer. Then yesterday i stumbled across Nienie's blog and I sat there watching the video of a photoshoot with these photographers. Loved them, thought it was awesome.
And now CLICK, it all fits together and now I am so very envious!!
Enjoy your photo session. Would love to have a look at them once all done.
Oh and if I were you I would take a change of clothes just in case!! xx

Wow - I love their photography too!! That would be my dream. Can't wait to see your photos!!!

Brigitte said...

Oooo exciting indeed!! I too love the family portraits Nienie gets done and think it's such a wonderful idea!! I'm sure you'll have a fun day, the photographers sound like fun people and I'm sure know how to entertain/bribe children to get the shots they want :)

Have just found your blog on KMB... Beautiful story of your family : )

I hope you have a fantastic photo session!

Love Meg's advice!!! So good.
And that IS so exciting Sammy, can't wait to see them and they will be able to totally work with little Rupi and his water obsession and turn it into amazing images...let the natural happen I always say when shooting families or kids...the natural flow with a little structure makes for beautiful images.

love and light
