Cake smash photography – Petrie

Miss G is one!

Today I met bright and bubbly Miss G! So so adorable and boy did she love her cake!! Mum wanted a cherry theme so off on a vist to spotlight I went in search of cherry fabric to make a bunting 🙂

On the day we couldn’t have cherries on the cake as planned as mum was told the glaze would stain the icing…. so jaffa balls had to do!

She looked so adorable dressed all in red with little shoes and bow to match!

Thank you for choosing Snugglebug Studios to capture your little ones first birthday! I look forward to seeing you all again later in the year!

Here are just some of the many gorgeous shots from her cake smash session! Enjoy! – Kylie x

Amelia is one

When mum Belinda booked the session in, it was months before hand, lots of planning, organising and buying went into Amelia’s session. The theme was Strawberry Shortcake! She was also having a big 1st birthday party at home which was also Strawberry Shortcake, mum organised a custom made outfit and bunting and I provided the balloons.

The cake was stunning and it looked delicious! BUT…. little miss was not very keen!! A few little finger dips here and there and then there were tears 🙁

Thank you Belinda for choosing Snugglebug Studios to capture your little ones cake smash session!

Here are some of the photos from Amelia’s cake smash session! Enjoy- Kylie x

Jesse is 1!

Jesse’s Mum booked a carnival theme, I wanted to do something different than my usual white background cake smash so when my husband made this little lemonade stand for me I thought we could incorporate it in with the session so I ordered a few carnival items from ebay, added my little Coke crates and voila! We have a Carnival looking theme.

We got some beautiful photos and he make a big mess! Happy Birthday Jesse! What a memorable way to celebrate your first birthday (it was his actual birthday)

Thanks Amanda for bringing Jesse in to see me, I look forward to seeing you all again in the future!

Below are some of the images from his cake smash session! Enjoy 🙂 – Kylie

Cake smash photography Melbourne – Ryland

Ryland is 1!

Ryland was a rockstar for his session, Mum Tina, dressed him in the most spunkiest outfit to match his colour theme and made a very colourful cake which Ryland soon destroyed!! There was no help needed to make a mess with this little guy, he even planted his face in the entire cake, he gave so many cute smiles and expression, this would have to be the most best cake smash session I have photographed to date!! There are so many favourites that I have, so this is a large blog post!

Thank you so much Tina and Joseph for choosing Snugglebug Studios, I look forward to seeing you all again soon!

Below are lots of gorgeous images from his session, cake smashes are so much fun!! Enjoy! – Kylie x

Hudson’s Birth ~ Melbourne birth photography

The birth of baby Hudson!

Well I am shocked at how this all happened and thought I would miss my first birth! On Friday January 18th Kelly went into labor! I was in Hampton Park, in the South East Suburbs of Melbourne doing a timeline shoot and catching up with a girlfriend of mine (I used to live down that way!) I get a call in the afternoon from Nigel, Kelly’s husband, informing me that they were at the hospital and she was 3 cm dilated! With Kelly’s previous pregnancies, they have been quick labors so I had to make the decision whether or not to make the 1 hour and 15 minute drive, possibly more in peak hour traffic to be there….. The thing is I did have my camera on me BUT I had 3 of my children with me…. I called my dad and asked him to mind them, he was OK with that and he said that he would drop them off afterwards saving me the drive back to collect! So here I am on my merry way, excited THEN I get a text saying we’ve been sent home! I quickly took the next exit off the freeway and pulled over to give Kelly a call. They were told to go home and come back when contractions get closer which the midwives all thought would be later on that night…. If that did  happen I would not have been able to make it, My husband does shift work and was on a night shift and I had no one to mind the kids, so I was so sure I would miss it 🙁

The next day I had a market to attend, I had my first stall at the Highlands market and all day I kept my phone close by waiting for THE call…. I kept thinking to myself just stay in there a little longer buddy lol….I got updates during the day that the labor has stopped! WOW I couldn’t believe it, he was keeping us all on our toes! It was now Sunday and my husband is now on his days off so I was available if it was to happen today! 🙂

The plan had been set, Monday was the day Kelly was to be induced, I knew this a long time ago and it worked out perfectly, I knew my husbands work schedule and knew he would have the day off 🙂 so perfect timing…..

I didn’t sleep well that night, I guess it was a bit of nerves and excitement? My first birth…. how will I go? Sure, I have been in the “hot seat” many times but never on the other side photographing someone elses birth! Although I was present at my nephews birth in 1995!

I was up early on Monday and made my way over to the Mercy Hospital, I thought I may get stuck in traffic so best to leave a little early…. I arrived at 8:10 am and found a car park, It was only a 3 hour spot, I was thinking it was going to be quick so it should be OK.

I get a text shortly after at 8 am…. the waters have been broken! I then made my way up to their room, keeping in mind that the past birth was very quick, under 2 hours I think if i remember correctly? Anyhow days before hand, I did mention that I will not be in the room the whole time, I did leave and give them some space every now and then and I could hear what was going on with the midwives, so I left when examinations were to be done etc…. ( I was never asked to leave at any time)

It’s now 10 am and contractions were  happening, they were a bit more regular and were getting stronger…

Kelly wanted to hop in the shower for pain relief, she was hoping for a drug free delivery.

At 12 pm nurses do an examination and find Kelly to be only 5 cm dilated 🙁 4 hours had gone by and now after finding out she is only half way she asked for an epidural.

The nurses offer Pethedine so she gives it a go, a few minutes later before it’s kicked in Kelly still demands an epidural, I could feel her pain 🙁  I was not directly in the room but behind the curtain near the door, I didn’t need to be in there but when I waited outside in the hall way, I was asked to leave by another nurse who had just came on duty! Um hello I am the birth photographer, I need to be here! Anyhow, the anesthetist was called…. this was at about 12:20…. Kelly’s contractions were getting closer and closer and very painful…. The nurses wanted to give another examination before the epidural is given. Approximately 10 minutes later the antestist steps into the room, I am still behind the curtain, she looks at me probably wondering who is this lady with this big camera and flash…. I say hi, they are just examining her right now then we hear the words, Kelly! You are fully dilated!! You can now start to push! Then the anesthetist says well I’m no longer needed and walks out…. lol this was at 12:30!! Just half hour earlier she was only 5 cm!! I was gobsmacked….. I then stepped back into the room to get ready to photograph this little man’s entrance!!

After 10 minutes of pushing Master Hudson was born at 12:41 pm on the January 21st weighing 7 lb 3 oz!

So after all the drama at the start, I was there to capture the birth and I am very thankful that they chose me to capture this very special and intimate moment between them!

I spent 7 hours at the hospital and was a tad nervous heading back to my car in fear I would have a parking ticket…..  There was nothing, phew! 🙂

I am happy to say that I am now offering birth photography packages, so if you have been thinking about doing this then drop me a line and have a chat with me today, enjoy and savour the moment with your hubby/partner and let me do all the work of capturing everything!

Below is just a snippet of some of the 150 images they received! 🙂 Enjoy!
