Willow & Hudson | Cake Smash Photographer Perth
Written by Nick Lance on Friday, 25 January 2013 12:13   

Our Cake Smash photo shoots are the perfect gift for first birthdays, but they are also a hit for older children as well. We had Willow in our studio recently and she came along with her older brother Hudson. Being a model can be a bit overwhelming, especially on your birthday so we took a few photos of Willow in her petite skirt and rescheduled. The next time they visited our studio Hudson took over the role and he had a great time munching and smashing the giant cupcake!


Our giant cupcake’s are professionally baked and decorated and taste amazing. Quite often the parents can’t resist sneaking a bite!

It’s fun to watch how children react to having a giant cupcake placed in front of them. Some giggle with excitement, some are a little hesitant but one thing is for sure – we always end up with some great photos. Why not book a cake smash photoshoot to see how your child will react?

Matilda | Newborn Photographer Perth
Written by Nick Lance on Friday, 21 December 2012 16:00   

Portrait photography is so much more than simply taking a photo. Of course there’s the editing and business side but the part that we fell in love with is being able to connect with people in order to be able to capture a photograph. Whether it’s by creating a comfortable atmosphere so people can be themselves or by engaging with someone directly so they interact with the camera naturally, we feel that we create a special bond with our clients.

We felt this bond yesterday we when had Poppy in our studio again. Last time we met Poppy it was for her cake smash a month ago and this time we were excited to meet her new baby sister Matilda. Poppy had a beautiful big smile as soon as she saw us and I felt that she recognised me straight away. This meant that instead of the shy, quiet Poppy we met last time, we got to see more of her personality and she really performed for the camera. I quite often say that clients generally laugh ‘at me’ not ‘with me’ but I feel that whatever the case maybe I get some genuine smiles.

With us expecting the birth of our own baby girl any day now it was beyond exciting for us to be able to photograph 10 day old Matilda. One of the most settled newborns we’ve had the pleasure of meeting, Matilda was very willing to lie on the soft shaggy rugs we use during our photo shoots and allow us to work around her without a fuss.

One of the great benefits of being Photographers is that we meet such wonderful people. While Matilda was having a well-deserved break and I was taking some portraits of David with Poppy, Billie was able to chat with Ebony. Occasionally we get lost in “our job” and are able to really communicate on a friendship level with the people we meet. Our job is easy when we get to work with such genuinely nice people and we hope to be able to capture more of Poppy & Matilda's milestone's in the future :)

Poppy's 1st Cake Smash | Portrait Photographer Perth
Written by Nick Lance on Tuesday, 20 November 2012 21:19   

Poppy had her 1st Cake Smash on Sunday in our Landsdale Studio. As adults we take a little bit to warm to the idea of getting our photo taken and children are no different. So we always take a few portraits to start with so that they become a bit more familiar with the camera. Poppy brought along a her toy dog Oscar who made a special appearance alongside her. Bringing along a toy is great idea and we have plenty of toys and props for kids to play with and distract them if the need arises. 

Once the giant cupcake came out, like all children Poppy was a bit hesitant. She didnt touch it. Didnt make a noise. She just watched. You could see her mind ticking over as she waited patiently taking everything in. After a few minutes she finally decided to touch it and when she did it was with precision. One slow smash straight through the middle. We thought she might then decide to eat it but no. She decided to share. She has to be the first child we have had in our studio that didnt want to eat any of the cake. She tasted it when Dad gave her some so she knew it was good. She just wanted to share it with her parents. Amazing! We then had a laugh wondered if she will be as generous when her new baby brother or sister arrives in a few weeks? But with such a gentle nature Im sure she will. 


Cake smash photography is still the same low price and a great gift idea for anyone wanting photos of their kids. How will your child react when they have a giant cupcake placed in front of them? Book now for your Cake Smash photos!







Barker Family | Portrait Photographer Perth
Written by Nick Lance on Wednesday, 31 October 2012 12:06   

Sunday morning I had the pleasure of meeting the Barker family at Sorrento Beach for a family portrait. We first met the Barker family when eldest daughter Larissa married Steve in March last year. Its been 18 months since their wedding and they still stay in our memory as one of the most fun and easy going families we’ve had the pleasure of photographing.  This family portrait was no different. We had some fun with piggy back rides and water fights so there were definitely some real smiles. We feel honoured to meet such great people!

When we first meet with our clients we give them a bit of history behind our business and how we came to be photographers. There are many different kinds of photography and the reason that we chose Weddings & Portraits is because of the relationship we feel we have with people whom we photograph. Anyone with a camera can take a photo. But we engage people with the camera and create a connection that makes us photographers.Its because of this special bond that our clients keep coming back.


We love watching families grow and our clients love hearing how we’ve grown as well. In the first week of January Billie & I will be expecting our fourth baby and we have been told it will be a girl. With 3 boys already, everyone we have told has shared their excitement. We look forward to sharing photos of our family soon as well.

Schwartz Family | Portrait Photographer Perth
Written by Nick Lance on Monday, 29 October 2012 09:39   

Over the weekend we had the pleasure of taking some family portraits of the Schwartz family at Sorrento Beach. October is undoubtedly the busiest month of the year for us not only for Weddings but for family portraits as well. It’s the time of year when the weather starts to warm up just enough to entice people out and take advantage of our gorgeous beaches and parks. It is also the perfect time to get in some family portraits to use as Christmas presents.

Quite often we hear of clients mentioning that they will take photos and just leave them as digital files on their computers. In today’s age Im sure all of us are guilty of this in some form. But there is something about a printed image that gives a photo life! If you think a photo looks good on your screen you should see it displayed on a wall. There are so many different printing options ranging from canvas wall mounts to ice blocks that allows our clients to change a photograph into an art piece to display in their home. Check out our Portrait Packages today!

Michaels Cake Smash | Perth Photographer
Written by Nick Lance on Wednesday, 29 August 2012 15:42   

Who says Cake Smash photos are just for toddlers? Recently Michael’s sister Jessica had her first Cake Smash so today Michael turned 5 years old and he was treated to his first Cake Smash as well! We always take a few portraits before the giant cupcake comes out which allows kids to become familiar with the camera and so there’s some extra photos for parents before the Cake Smash. So at first Michael seemed a bit shy and not his cheery self. I asked him if he was having a good birthday and he simply asked “Can I smash my cake now?” So out came the giant cupcake and Michael’s face lit up. It didn’t take long for the giant cupcake to be completely demolished. He had the time of his life!


Cake Smash photoshoots also make for great gift ideas. Visit our Cake Smash tab or contact us for more info.
