I headed up to Hamilton & Cambridge recently for a couple of photo shoots - mum Brenda had an awesome helper in big sister Kaylee and her wee sister simply adores her!

The Eastmure clan gets cozy at Christmas

Written by Angela Penn on December 8th, 2014.      0 comments


The beautiful Eastmure family let me hang out with them last Friday as they got festive! I'm loving their Christmas PJs - too cute!  Big sisters Natasha and Lilly simply ADORE their wee baby brother - this family has so much love, it's just so cute to see it in the kids who clearly love each other to bits.  Alena is not only a great hostess, she is the master of set design too and the tree and surrounding Christmas things were amazing! Down to the wee jars complete with fairly lights - gotta get me some of them!

The girls and I were discussing how cool it would be to have REAL LIVE fairies in these jars and what we would name them.  Lilly says she would call one Bendon.  "Brendon?" I ask?  "No, Bendon".

nikolay's first steps - a lifestyle shoot

Written by Angela Penn on October 1st, 2014.      0 comments


I met these gorgeous guys a few weeks ago when they came up to my studio to check out my work and to make sure I wasn't a total nut-job.  I pretended I wasn't so we booked in their Lifestyle Shoot!  Grigoriy, Anna & wee Nikolay are from Ukraine and are totally gorgeous!!!

We started at the Christchurch Botanic Gardens where they fed the ducks, then wandered around together being totally in love and beautiful.  That works up an appetite so we went back to their place for cake!!!

Their house is filled with love and memories and there are photos everywhere. Anna made the wee elephants which are a symbol of good luck.

Now for cake...mmm it was delicious!  Inna from Inna's Baking made it and it not only looked good it tasted AMAZING!!!

Now, Anna is one very talented lady - she MADE these beautiful flowers! They are made from soft, air-dryed Japanese clay and they look so life- like!  They are perfect for a wedding bouquet or buttonhole as they last forever!
