A friend of mine from work asked me to shoot her daughter’s baptism. I was thrilled to be asked as I had been wanting to shoot Xanthe for a while but never quite find the opportunity to do so. Xanthe was so adorable during the entire service, and I was pleasantly surprised how she was able to hold up so well throughout the baptism service albeit it was actually time for a nap for her.
I was happy to be able to capture some key moments during the baptism and here are some photos to share.
Baby Cate was recently baptised at a local church. The service was held specially for her Christening and baptism. I was there to capture the beautiful service and here are some of the images of that day:
It was a definitely a joy to witness this precious and happy occasion. My prayer for Cate is that she will grow up to be a fine young and beautiful lady. May the God bless her and her family always.
Caroline asked me in December last year if I was able to do a family portrait for her family. They are friends of the Stevens, whom I have done a portrait shoot for their new born baby, Conor, back in August.
Here are some of the photos I took of them:
My sister-in-law came to Perth two days ago and along with her on this trip is our latest addition to the family. Daniel is two weeks old and he is my precious little nephew, the first from my wife’s side of the family.
Daniel is a real bundle of joy not just to my sister-in-law, but also to us. It is a real blessing to be her uncle. Here are some photos of my little newborn nephew.

A real bundle of joy comes in a small package. What is missing in the photo is a stork carrying the basket in its beak.
Cute little bundle giving out a lazy yawn. What a sweetie.
Makayla is a cute little baby girl. She also happens to be my niece. I saw her for the very first time back in August, which happened to be her first birthday. And due to the vast geographic distance between America and Australia, celebrating Makayla’s 1st Birthday is a rarity. These moments are so precious to us that nothing would beat the ultimate birthday present of having a photo shoot for Makayla and her parents. Oh, what sweet memories we have ………….
She is a real cutie isn’t she?
Happy 1st birthday Makayla! With all my love – your uncle from Perth.
Connor was only 13 weeks old when his parents contacted us and wanted us to do a newborn portrait of him. We were still in the winter period in Perth and thus it was quickly decided that the portrait session was best done at the comfort of his own house.
KC and I arrived at the Stevens home in the morning, and we were glad we were getting plenty of winter sunlight. Perfect for either an indoor or outdoor shoot. After a quick chat with the Stevens, we decided to stay indoor and use as much ambience lighting (with a little help from the ceiling lights).
It was a pleasant shoot as Connor was quite happy to let us shoot him for most of the time. Only when we decided to take him off his comfortable jumpsuit for some natural shoot that he started complaining – probably due to the cold winter air. A brilliant idea of placing a heater near him soon settled him.
Here are some of the photos we took of him that day…
