A shy little princess and a cake to smash
Baby Ava celebrated her first birthday in June. Her mother, Sandra is a friend of ours from play group, so I am lucky to have been able to see Ava grow over the last few terms at Baby Bright Stars. Sandra asked us if we could do a "Smash Cake Shoot" for Ava, so naturally Cheeky Cherub wanted to make it extra special for her. We custom made the pink and gold girly fans for her backdrop and made her a beautiful cake to match the theme.Ava like most girls was very delicate and shy when faced with her cake. She needed a bit of encouragement to gain interest and even still the soft sponge and delicious layers of pink frosting did not peak her interest. Instead Ava found her excitement in some playing blocks she found in the room. Never the less, we just love how her custom designed "Smash Cake Shoot" turned out.

Cheeky Cherub was invited to create and host an Easter themed photo booth for the little cherubs at Baby Bright Stars – Kyalami for the end of term one’s Easter celebrations.

“My mother Sharon Wooldridge and I worked enthusiastically together to create this stunning paper flower wall to be used as a backdrop for this amazing themed shoot. It was so much fun getting to meet all of the moms and babies at Baby Bright Stars. Being a BBS mom myself, I also got to include my own little Cherub Bashjin in one of the sessions featured with the grey bunny on his white grow. Isn’t he dashing? ;)”

Thanks to Kerri Webb from BBS for having Cheeky Cherub for this event and thanks to all of the moms, dad’s and baby’s for joining us, if there was a cutest baby contest for this group I would NOT want to be the judge.

What do you think of our setup and stylish photography?

I recently visited the Lockyer family’s beautiful home to capture some pics of them with their baby girl “Franki-Rose” at her 10 month milestone. It was so nice to spend time with such a sweet laid-back bunch and the lovely “Logan”, Franki’s older sister was a delight, showing me around the property and posing like such a natural star. What a great afternoon and cool collection from this session.


2017 Countdown Mini Session. Four lovely ladies joined us for a girls afternoon to have some friendly portraits done. It was so much fun to photograph this brilliantly hilarious group of women. They are all so beautiful too. What a fantastic way to spend an afternoon with the girls.

I had the pleasure of photographing baby Harlow at 7 weeks and here are some of my favourites shot recently at their home in Johannesburg. I can't believe that I photographed Parker at her newborn session just 2 years ago, seen here with her beautiful curls and stylish dress. She has grown up so fast. This family is to die for and Tameron looks radiant as a mother of two gorgeous girls.
