It's always a privilege to be asked to photograph a family session. These are the photographs you will look back on in 20, 30 year's time. They are the photographs your children will be sure to take with them as they leave the nest, the photos they will show their own children. I can never really express how much I love what I do and how important my job really is.
I actually contacted Sarah a few months back, interested in having my own maternity photography session in her studio. After a few emails back and forth, we decided we'd seize the opportunity to get some up to date family photographs for Sarah & I get some personal maternity photographs for myself.
Now, those who know me know I am not the most patient person in the world, but I surprised myself with how well I waited for my session! I was 35 weeks when we did my session & a week later we ventured outside for Sarah's family session.
Sarah has 3 beautiful girls- two of which haven't been too keen recently to be in front of the camera so I knew I had my work cut out for me. On the day, the youngest, Miss S, was not keen at all & it wasn't until after the session, that night we figured out the cause which was a tummy bug. Despite Miss S not feeling 100%, we still got some lovely family moments!

I actually met Willows mum for her Maternity session, which you can find HERE!! So when it came time for Willow's session, I felt like I had known her mum for years!
Miss Willow and her beautiful family were such a pleasure to photograph! Mum and dad opted for neutral tones with a dash of soft pinks & that's exactly what they got! :)
Big sister Indi seems like such a gentle little soul, looking after her baby sister. Was so beautiful to see!!
Little Willow slept so well during her newborn session, so much so that we had finished up earlier than expected so we tried out a few extra props. One of my favourite newborn / family sessions for sure!
Time to play a bit of catch up on my blog!
This little girl was the BEST sleeper so we got to play with a lot of setups!
I was super excited to try out my new fabric dream catcher I made only the week before.
This little cherub's great grandmother knitted her a gorgeous blanket which we added into a few shots!
What's your favourite image? I can't decide!!

I am a little slow with my blog, so this will have to be a very short one!
I had so much fun during this shoot & loved how the whole family were so natural in front of the camera!
Tumay just adores his little brother, Leigh - as I am sure you can tell by these images.
