A birthday bash with heart {Meaghan Cook - Geelong Photographer}


It was Alfreda's 70th birthday, and her daughter Stella organised for me to go along and document the occassion. Having their portrait taken was a birthday surprise for Alfreda. Alfreda thought it was marvelous. Such a great idea on Stella's behalf.

This family had not all been together for eight years. Eight years! So they were relishing the chance to spend time together. They siblings all live abroad and came home specially for their mum's birthday. 

{The next generation: these grandkids were sweet as pie.}

I felt really privileged to be there to help them mark such an important day. There was also many of Alfreda's friends and family there to help her celebrate her birthday. With the bubbly flowing and fine food to share, it was a glorious day.

Thanks Stella for inviting me along. I loved being there and capturing your family. You guys were all so good to me (they kept offering me champagne!) and I really appreciate it. Happy birthday Alfreda!

{This is one of my favourite photos from the day. A new mum comforting her very new baby. Sharing that bond only a mother and daughter can have.}

A HUGE thanks to Sarah who very kindly picked me up and drove me to this shoot. It was across in Sorrento and I didn't have a clue how to get there once I got off the ferry. Sarah gave up her lazy Sunday to escort me there, and then drive me back to the ferry. What a gal!
