Brand new.

One of the loveliest things about shooting a maternity session is the knowledge that I will soon get to meet and photograph a brand new little person. So I was just thrilled to hear from Megan that she had a brand new baby boy!

 

For someone who is supposed to sleep 23 hours a day, he was awfully awake!

Finally, in the comfort of mummy’s arms, he drifted off

Ang & Jon :: Wedding

Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of heading out to Kings Plains Castle between Inverell and Glen Innes, to photograph the wedding of Jon & Ang.  Beautiful weather, a great couple, a wonderful, intimate ceremony. All the elements for a perfect wedding.

I think this one is one of my favourite wedding shots ever!

Congratulations again, Jon & Ang. Your wedding was absolutely lovely, and it was an honour to be there to capture your special day.

A new chapter…

A new baby is always exciting, be they a first baby or a fifth. There is something about the innocence, the freshness, the potential of these new little people that never ceases to amaze me. And there is a special joy in photographing a mother expecting a younger sibling for their children – seeing the excitement on the children’s faces, the shy pride as they let me in on the secret that mummy has a baby in her tummy.

 

On Saturday, I had the pleasure of shooting some maternity portraits for Megan, and little Miss Two wasn’t quite sure of me at first, but it didn’t take long and she was posing for the camera like  pro!

(as a side note, it’s a good idea to take the camera off high speed action mode before inviting the two year old to “press that button there” – let’s just say it’s a good thing I wasn’t shooting with my film camera!)

 

Megan has a cute little “basketball” belly – so neat and round!

Thanks for having me around Megan, I look forward to meeting the little person hiding in there in a few weeks!
