Back in September Mel messaged me casually mentioning she was 38 weeks pregnant and was there was time to fit in a wee maternity session?! 😆 She promised she'd actually meant to message me months ago! I'm so glad our calendars & the weather aligned for us to get these precious portraits captured! I first photographed Mel & Blair more than two years ago when Clay hadn't yet made his appearance into the world. So it was super special to be back again with these beautiful people.
And just this month we met up again to photograph the McKenzie's as a family of four! I loved meeting wee Darcy, who was a superstar for her newborn session. Check out all the cuteness below... Poor Mel had a fun time in my studio last week trying to decide which photographs to get printed for their walls! (Sorry, not sorry Mel 😜).
Mel & Blair, thanks heaps for asking me to create these portraits for you. I loved catching up with you and can't wait to get these photos printed for you! x
This portrait session was the first of my spring portrait season which is about to kick into overdrive as this beautiful weather brings with it new growth, warmer days & fresh blossom.
On the morning of the Thompson's shoot the sun glowed, the kids had a brand new pet lamb to feed and I had a lot of fun documenting this special time in the Thompson family at their Invercargill home.
Katie and Tyler were such cuties to photograph!
I love these in-the-moment portraits. And I find myself wondering if one day when Katie & Tyler are older they might find these photos in an album and remember that was the first pet lamb we ever had!
Anna & Carey, thank you so much for asking me to create these portraits for you. It was an absolute pleasure to meet you and I have so many new favourite photos from your portrait session! x
Nomah and KB are patiently awaiting the arrival of their first child and imagining what it will feel like to hold their baby girl in their arms for the first time. A few weeks ago we headed down to the river to create some photographs to mark this very special time in their lives before their world changes forever.
These two were totally at ease and so in the moment in front of my camera. I had the best time getting to know Nomah & KB during the shoot and I have so many favourite photos. Nomah is absolutely glowing and just one look at these photos shows you how excited KB is to meet his daughter!
Nomah & KB - thank you for asking me to create these portraits for you of such a special time. I had a lot of fun on your photoshoot and I look forward to getting these portraits printed for you in a gorgeous keepsake album. xx
