Beach Baby {Bribie Maternity Session}

I was just doing up some prints for this family when I realised I hadn’t blogged their maternity session! Posting these photos tonight while I’m rugged up in my doona, it’s hard to believe how terribly hot and muggy it was on this day and this family were absolute rock stars!

I first met Matt and Roanne a few years ago when their little girl was a beautiful baby bump.  Then last year I was so blessed to be invited to photograph their stunning wedding and now here they are about to welcome another little person into the world!

Mel and Bec’s Beautiful Maternity Session (and some surprise legal document signing) {Brisbane Maternity (and wedding) Photographer}

Quite possibly my longest title ever – but if ever there was a session deserving of a magnificantly long title – this is it!

I was overjoyed when I heard from Bec and Mel that they were expecting a little baby.  I was even more excited when Mel said she wanted to do a milk bath as part of her maternity session.

Mel and Bec decided to have their session the same day as their baby shower which was wonderful because I could photograph all of the special little details of their baby shower as well!

The day was absolutely stunning as I (eventually) found the hidden little property at Mount Samson where the shower was being held.

After spending some time soaking in the milk bath – including a little visit from one of the resident baby goats, we headed outside.  I’d just like to point out here that Bec and Mel are quite possible the most lucky weather clients I have ever had.

Just as we made it out to the little lake the clouds let the sun peek through in the most beautiful way – just like it did 2 years ago at their wedding…. Speaking of which….

After our little stroll and as the Baby Shower was about to begin Mel let me know she had a little surprise planned for Bec.  She had the celebrant who had officiated at their wedding arriving so they could sign their legal wedding documents after the law change here in the land of Oz last year!  I was so excited I couldn’t leave until I’d captured a few images of this special occassion.  Wow!  What a day!

Wishing you all the best with the birth of your baby – can anyone guess if it’s a boy or a girl.. there are some hints in the photos!

Waiting on Baby {Petrie Maternity Photographer}

It’s hard to believe that only a few years ago I was asking people to volunteer to be my guinea pigs as I prepared a portfolio to move into the professional photography circle.  This lovely couple were one of those volunteers when they were pregnant with this hansom young who is about to become a big brother!  I hope you enjoy your photos and congratulations on your baby girl!

Rachel and Andrew {Shorncliffe Maternity Photographer}

The rain clouds were hanging low over Shorncliffe when I got to meet this beautiful little family.  I honestly didn’t know if the rain would hold off for us but we were on a tight timeline with mumma at 38 weeks.

In the end the rain held off for us and we were able to capture some very special images for this gorgeous family before they welcomed their baby girl into the world.
