Welcome Jett (Wollongong Newborn Photographer)

I had the pleasure of photographing 8 day old Jett. What a delight he was. He can come round any day. And big sister Lexi is just so sweet, the perfect big sister.

Jett has the most amazing blond (almost white) hair, I’ve never seen a baby with such beautiful hair.

Cianna’s 2nd Birthday Party Part 2 (Wollongong Child Photographer)

Good Afternoon My Lovelies,

Well here is the long awaited part 2 of Cianna’s party.

I thought I should give you a run down of where I bought all the bits and pieces.

Large candy jars are from Target

Small candy jars from Brown Button Trading

Doll graphic from ClipArt Store om Etsy

Bottle and pram cookie cutters from Little Betsy Baker

The girls’ dresses (and matching doll’s dress) were made by my mum.

My mum also made the fabric bunting.

Musk sticks from Cooks Confectionery 1/8 Durgadin Dr Albion Park Rail NSW 2527 (02) 4257 9444. So glad I found this place they have lollies by the kilo, so much cheaper than buying at the supermarket.

Balloons from All Things Party at Yallah

Pink jelly beans (in large candy jars) from Wally’s Lollies

Treat bags, ribbon and musk stick bags from Packaging Direct North Wollongong

Cianna and Annika’s hair clips from Little Moos

And I made the party hats, musk stick packaging, bag tags, popcorn boxes, cupcake toppers, cupcakes, birthday cake, meringues, heart shortbreads with pink sugar.
For the drink bottles I bought pop tops from Woolies, poured the juice out (the girls drank that), washed them out then filled them with pink cordial. Then made labels, printed on paper and attached them to the pop tops with contact. I attached the labels one night while watching Schindler’s  List (its a rather tedious task LOL). So I was bawling my eyes out from the movie and trying to see where to line up the labels.

Cianna’s 2nd Birthday Part 1 (Wollongong Child Photographer)

Hello my lovelies,

Well I have been super busy and super excited about Cianna’s birthday. We had the party on Sunday and it was a fab day. The kids had a ball, which is the main thing, and we were swimming in a sea of pink LOL. There are so many pics I didn’t know where to start. Here’s a few, but there’s more to come.

Cianna has lots more exciting news to share with you too. She started kindy on Friday, jazz yesterday and ballet today. So I’ll be blogging about all that too, soon.

More Preparations for Cianna’s Birthday (Wollongong Child Photographer)

Well preparations for Cianna’s birthday party are well under way. I can’t believe my baby is turning 2 TOMORROW, how did that happen so fast?????? We are having her party on Sunday, its going to be so much fun. We’ve got everything “dolly”, we will be having pram races too.

I bought this gorgeous cake topper from etsy. I was going to post a link to the shop, but I’ve just checked and the shop has closed, so I’m lucky that I got this gorgeous peg doll cake topper. The detail is just amazing.

Since Cianna is into all things dolly we are have a Doll themed birthday party. So mum has made her a gorgeous “dolly” dress and this morning I did a photoshoot. These photos are for the party invitations.
