Jackson Sparrow | Pirate Party
As most of you will know already from a previous post I uploaded not so long ago, my little boy turned 3 recently! One of my favourite things about being a mum is planning his birthday parties… and this year is the first year Jackson had an opinion on what he wanted!! I had planned a lovely bugs party and my Pinterest boards were buzzing with great ideas (http://pinterest.com/tandykerry/bug-party-ideas/)… like glass jar party packs with magnifying glasses and edible insects inside and my favourite, a mud cake with worms and bugs crawling all over it! BUT as most boys seem to be fascinated by pirates, and every party Jackson has been to recently has been pirate themed, this has made Jackson think that all boy parties have to be Pirate parties!!
After reminding myself that this was indeed Jackson’s birthday party (and not mine) I went back to the drawing board and embraced all things pirate, including making a pirate ship birthday cake! The party was such a success in Jackson’s mind that every Saturday after his party, he insisted on having another pirate party and doing it all again! Fingers crossed he allows me to plan a bugs party next year!! Thank you for looking, reading and sharing! T

Jackson’s rockstar party
Ok so you’ve seen Jackson opening some of his presents and you’ve seen me frantically baking guitar cakes and sweetie-cupcakes… now it’s time to see the party pics! I must say I really enjoyed his first birthday party… yes it was a little chaotic at times but what first birthday party isn’t! For me the highlight was having our family in South Africa set up on skype on 2 computers in the living room singing happy birthday with us and all of Jackson’s friends! We had the lights off so all you could see were our families on the monitor and Jackson’s face in front of his first little candle! I will treasure that memory for many years to come!

West London Baby Photography | Princess Sofia
I’ve had a rather busy 2 weeks with a husband on holiday (yay) a sick little boy (boo) and a few more photoshoots! I have lots to blog about so will need to sit down and spend some time catching up! I am rushing out the door again but thought I’d share a few shots from Princess Sofia’s birthday… she is simply adorable and I loved capturing her personality! I will upload more of her photos on my website… so keep a look out!

Oll1e’s first birthday.
I have recently shot 2 first birthdays… a pink one and a blue one! It was so lovely to share in both special occasions and capture the day so the memories will be treasured always! I love the fact that as a photographer I am part of so many people’s happy memories and that my photographs will get cherished for years to come! I will upload some photos from Sofia’s first birthday (the pink one) in a couple of weeks time so look out for them. In the meantime wish me luck as I start to plan for Jackson’s first birthday…Â Mmmm I wonder who will take photos at Jackson’s party!? :)
