This particular trip was to the 2013 Cool Inc. Tattoo convention, where Marisa and Chelsea  from Tattoolya set up their temporary and traveling tattoo studio in their awesome little vintage caravan called ‘Peanut’!

‘Our cute, vintage, caravan is solar powered and designed for a hygienic tattoo environment, taking the dodgy right out and replacing it with a whole lot of charm, and a whole lot of fun!
Fueled by some good ‘ol fashioned music, a zest for adventure and 2 girl tattoo artists, aswell as our pup named Savage!
Many Squirms and many laughs and the occasional whiskey from tea cups for glass!! ‘

A few months ago i had the pleasure of attending and photographing the store launch of Suzaan Heyns an incredibly talented local fashion designer’s store in Melrose Arch.  The event was sponsored by Bombay Saphire and was well attended by local celebrities, such as Felicia, Pearl Thusi, Abby and Claire Meekel, Tamara Day, Louise Carver, Catriona Andrew and Lindiwe Suttle, who gave an amazing performance, singing songs from her album ‘Kamikaze’  from behind the store window.

The Suzaan Heyns store is situated on the top level of the Piazza in Melrose Arch, Johannesburg.

Neelam’s 5th birthday party | Kids birthday photography

Kids birthday photographyNeelam’s 5th birthday party was held at Papachino’s in Crowthorne, Midrand. What an amazing venue for not just a birthday party, but for kids in general! All the Papachino’s are generally the place to go with kids, but this one is really a cut above the rest. They have about four different play areas for kids of all different ages,  as well as a little pizza restaurant for kids, with a long counter where kids can sit and make their own pizza. It was an absolute hit! The kids all bunched up next to each other, rolled out their dough, and chose all their own toppings – a rather messy affair, but needless to say, the kids had an absolute a blast!

Neelam was joined by her rather extensive family and all her friends to celebrate her special day. I had lots of fun running around after them at the jungle gyms, following them to get their pics. So many beautiful kids, so many beautiful photos. 🙂

Mandy handles everything a parent might need for a kids birthday party – from the table decorations and catering, to entertainment like jumping castles and face painting, and she always adds lovely themed party packs to suit the party theme, which kids go absolutely crazy for! This all means that you – as the parent, can actually relax and enjoy your little one’s special day and not run around taking care of all the details.

Little Alex turned 3 on this day, and his Shrek party was a huge success! What a lucky boy to be surrounded by his many family and friends at George and Lucy’s party venue in Chartwell.
