norm’s birthday bash… 7 feb ’10

Monday, February 8th, 2010

as promised here is a selection from the party yesterday! the day was well attended by family and close friends; and beautifully decorated by norm’s lovely wife daisy, joy and jane of course, and many other talented and willing helpers. daisy created special signature cakes cleverly illustrating norman castle’s own name, and still found time to prepare a wonderfully tasty banquet which we all enjoyed.

during the party guests and family were entertained by norm’s photo presentation summarising his life so far; and we were fortunate to have two wonderfully talented musicians with us: norm’s own singer/guitarist nephew – and the Queen’s own piper (norm’s friend from his own piping days) who played for HRH when she visited new zealand – and piped again for norm as a special surprise yesterday!

joshua’s 1st birthday… 3 jan ’10

Sunday, January 3rd, 2010

it doesn’t seem a moment ago that baby joshua ty was having his very first photo shoot at just two days old! since he was born i have been lucky enough to watch him grow up through my lens: aged one month old; and a few from six months old.

and now, he is one year old, so of course he had an enormous bash at his family’s gorgeous new home under the kauri trees. he received more presents than he could play with, but the other children were more than happy to assist him with that; and a great celebration was had by all.

here are my favourites from yesterday’s party…


costume time! bob the builder meets elvis…


cake – made with love by joshua’s grandmother


he’s so funny


unimpressed cat is… unimpressed


one of his guests… only a couple of weeks older than him
