Sweet Little Mr. Johnston

I was so excited when I received a message from this lovely mumma about wanting to book a small session…  ‘I would like just a few photos of my son as a newborn’. I was excited for a couple of reasons; this mumma who isn’t really a fan of having her photograph taken still wanted to ‘record’ this time in her son’s life, to capture when he was so small and tiny and this would be my first newborn little boy!

This session was photographed on location in their home. I find it so much easier for new parents to be in their own space, they are more relaxed and have everything they could possibly need for baby. We talked about color palette options and the style of images ahead of time and chose a nice bright location of the house. Little Maddux wasn’t totally sleepy when I arrived, we tried to get him settle without being held but he had different plans. After a feeding he was ‘milk drunk’ and happy to settle in for his quick little session.

I am incredibly grateful that mum and dad were easily talked into a few images that included them… it was so wonderful to meet this ‘Little Man’. I look forward to a few family photos as he grows.

Sweet and precious Isobelle | Newborn Session

Such a beautiful way to welcome the year… a tiny and precious wee baby girl.

Miss Isobelle was so good as we rearranged her house to make space for photographing her in all her newness. She slept nearly the entire afternoon. There is nothing more precious than the smell and warmth of a brand new baby and I was incredibly blessed to soak up as much snuggles as I could during my time there.

The pooches, Lola and Juno, were still a little unsure about this new little bundle that arrived on the cusp of Lola having to say goodbye to her last pup. There was still a sadness but I know that in a short time there will be a new sense of parenting as the two grow attached to Isobelle.

Such a beautiful and sweet girl.

Congratulations Nicole and Ricky.

Lucy & Brad | Maternity Mini Session

A few quick photos to mark an amazing moment because there is not much more amazing than being pregnant, on the cusp of welcoming a new, precious wee one into your life.

I was surprised to discover that I had met Lucy before, years before. She has grown into a beautiful woman and I could not be more happy that she has found a wonderful man and was about to embark on the joy of becoming a mother. One of the most difficult yet rewarding positions to hold. So very exciting.

There was a shyness for Lucy and Brad (there often is in front of the camera) but Blaze the beautiful black lab was plenty excited for the two of them!!
