As I drove out to the address Helena had given me for their maternity session I felt a sense of deja vu. And when I pulled up the driveway I remembered why it felt so familiar. Paul and Helena have been on their Seaward Downs dairy farm for three years now, having bought it from good family friends of ours! It never ceases to surprise me how small this world truly is!!!
Paul & Helena are soulmates, it's obvious to see how perfect they are together. They are also totally excited about the next chapter in their lives and the upcoming arrival of wee bubs. Meeting and getting to know this couple is the epitome of why I LOVE my job.
Helena is from the Netherlands and these photos are not only a beautiful moment in their lives captured, but are also a documentation for Helena's mum, many miles away.
I had the best afternoon hanging out with Paul & Helena on the farm, completed by the inclusion of Brin, their fur baby. This dog had me laughing - she came over to us in the paddock for a few shots & then headed back to the shed to help bring in some cows for milking! Talk about multi-tasking ;)
These guys are too cute! And Helena just glows at 37 weeks!
Helena and Paul, I can't thank you enough for giving me the opportunity to document this precious time in your lives! It was such a pleasure to meet you both & I can't wait to get your prints sent to you, they are going to look stunning.xx
