Meet Amika – the little ray of sunshine that I got to photograph just before we went on holiday. She is the friendliest little girl, ready with a smile and a gurgle and with those lively brown eyes already has everyone wrapped around her tiny little finger. Mom Ninette really wanted to have some photos taken in Amika’s room as Granny spent a lot of time and trouble preparing it for their granddaughter’s arrival. I loved the room – its such a happy bright space and I can imagine Amika spending countless hours having fun in there.
Ninette is also one of the most gorgeous absolutely down-to-earth happy people I’ve ever met. When she smiles you want to laugh with her – she has this open beautiful smile that instantly lights up a room and I loved photographing her.
We even went to a park close by for a couple of quick shots where Amika promptly fell asleep on dad’s shoulder – and that made for a special family photo that will probably always be one of my favourites. So here are a few of their photos – what an awesome awesome family!
