Baking frenzy

I'm no master chef but motherhood seems to have brought out the baker in me. Pictured up top is a nod to my grandma with traditional bread & butter pud. Below is a shot of my sons 6 month birthday cake. A double layered choc cake with buttercream frosting and pebbles - of course!

Another week

Taking selfies with my 5 month old (soon to be 6) if only he would look at the camera long enough. Will have to do another photo session with him again soon as he grows and changes so fast! Managed to visit an old haunt Ripe cafe last week. Colour of the walls has changed but the coffee is still good.

Monday morning stroll into Milford with my baby boy for company. We had a lovely coffee at Little King cafe and picked up some beautiful spring blooms on the walk home. A steel at $1.50 a bunch!

Me and mine

A few more shots of my little one. Coming up to 5 months he can nearly push himself up on his tummy but is more interested in having his hands in his mouth at the moment.

First coffee today in 12 months with caffeine in it. I have to say it was pretty weak so I couldn't really tell the difference. Tasty though. 

I have been taking a few shots of my workspace today for The Market NZ. Heres a sneak peek...

I spend a lot of time on my laptop, editing files and further creating artworks once the photograph has been taken. Each Art Print comes signed and dated and is packaged carefully in a clear archival sleeve, with a hard board backing to further protect it. Photo blocks are also pictured. The finished photo block is created by hand with the photograph of choice mounted onto the light weight block. The photo block is then ready to hang or can sit freely on a shelf or mantle.

Cant get enough

Ever since being pregnant and having a baby to nurture I cant seem to get enough of avocado. A delicious, creamy superfood and what better way to have it, than on toast. I can't wait to try these two recipes I found on Pinterest. Goats Cheese and Avocado Toast and Caprese Avocado Breakfast Toast. YUM!

Sunny bays

First day of sunshine since moving back to Auckland in June. Nice to be out with my boys enjoying the bays. This panorama taken between Mairangi bay and Murrys bay with my iPhone.
