This beautiful mummy to be radiated beauty & joy, she was so comfortable infront of the camera, i absolutely loved her energy. Be proud of your pregnant body & embrace the changes as a part of the journey to a new chapter in your life
I love capturing bumps, i never get sick of maternity shoots. For me they are about beauty, femininity, happiness, change, and new chapters.
I love how exciting this time is for my clients, and aim to capture that excitement & joy before their baby arrives. I always shoot maternity in the golden hour of the day for that beautiful light that captures the mood i'm going for; glowy, warm & golden. Sami looks beautiful here, in one of my favourite locations Burns Beach
Beautiful Sarah is expecting a little baby boy. This mummy to be looks absolutely stunning & i enjoyed capturing this very special time for her.
Gorgeous Mini showing off her bump <3 ones thing for sure, if this little bub is a girl she is going to have some serious style, mini came to the shoot with so many accessories to choose from
Emma & huss had a relaxing maternity shoot on the beach, simple yet gorgeous! Love these shots capturing this very special time in their lives <3
Elizabeth & her husband came in for a relaxed maternity photo session to capture the special time of expecting their first child. Out of all the beautiful bright outfits Elizabeth had, my absolute favourite was her traditional outfit which included a beautiful headpiece & colours that just popped against the black backdrop
Toni & James came into the studio with their daughter Marlia for a family maternity photoshoot. Marlia was so excited to have her photos taken & I can tell she cannot wait to meet her baby sister. I look forward to meeting the new bub for her newborn shoot!
Kal & her husband chose the beautiful location of Araluen Botanical Park for their maternity photoshoot. I loved how green and lush the location was & how it offered so many options. The sun didn't want to come out that morning but we still managed to get some soft even lighting. I love the autumn colours that shine through. Will definitley love to shoot at Araluen again. Congratulations to Kal & hubby!
Lovley Nicole & Darryl came into my home studio for a maternity shoot. I ask every mum to be if they have any 'inspiration' photos or ideas they would like to incorporate, in this case Nicole wanted a "before" and "after" photo of the bump & baby & letters that spelt out LOVE with O being the bump. I believe in creating a personal experience where clients have a say in the creation of their photos. A maternity shoot is a beautiful way of capturing that moment before seeing your child for the first time, it captures love, excitement, joy and reflection.
I shot Amy & Graeme's Wedding back in April this year & now they are expecting the arrival of their baby boy Benjamin! I like to keep maternity shoots simple & really focus on the bump - some of my favourite shots were using only one soft box which created a soft feel to the image as oppose to the more high key shots. I would definitely like to play around with more low key lighting & a black backdrop for future maternity shoots.
