2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,700 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 7 trips to carry that many people.

Cara & Greg

Cara & Greg wed at the Hills Lodge Castle Hill on the 27th October 2012. As this was our last official wedding we were honoured not only with stunning weather but also with a beautiful family, bride & groom. It wasnt just the bride that was emotional……..we will have the images from this special day here and on facebook in the next couple of weeks. Thanks to Cara & Greg for making our job very easy.

Look what we are donating!

We here at Vanilla Splash strongly support the RSPCA and love helping them out! We have photographed past million paws walks, santa paws, and various images for RSPCA guardian angels print ads & magazines.  It’s always fun working with animals and are so very grateful to them as where would we be without our miniature horse Sebastian (aka potato) who was rescued by the RSPCA. So when  they approached us we were more than happy to donate a “pet portrait” package valued at $395.  This will be auctioned at the VIP customers sale night.

Family portrait at Blackheath

Beautiful photos from a beautiful family! We had the opportunity to photograph Wendy and Matt’s family in Blackheath.
Not only were we lucky enough to capture the whole family, we were lucky to be in the presence of a celebrity!! Dorothy De Low! Dorothy is 101 years old and was the oldest of the 2000 competitors in the 15th World Veterans Table Tennis Championships.
Dorothy is Wendy and Cathy’s Grandmother.’
