Happy Birthday to my Boys!

A Happy Birthday to my little monkeys!  I can't believe seven years have gone by since these two came into my life...and it was about seven years ago as well that their grandmother started knitting beautiful sweaters for them - they have a whole series of these stashed away from the time they were little.  

For this series of portraits, my boys are wearing their latest hand knit sweaters.  The tradition began when my husband was a boy and his mum continues to knit sweaters with every new grandchild.  The sweaters have come to symbolize love, warmth and coziness of family.

The Businessman and The Ballerina

Part of being a photographer is being open to possibilities and spontaneity.  

In this little series, I particularly love the contrast of the dark business suit with the pink ballerina.  As a silent observer, I am able to hold a mirror and capture these intimate moments.

Baking With The Boys

How was your weekend?  We had a great weekend.  The highlight was making another successful batch of cookies with my boys from Rosie Daykin's "Butter Baked Goods".  This time they wanted to try the Gingerstamp.  Though my cookies don't look as beautiful as they do in the book, they sure were delicious!
