"Let us make pregnancy an occasion when we appreciate our female bodies" - Merete Leonhardt-Lupa
Justine came in for her maternity portraits at 38 weeks and omg I absolutely ADORE the images we got! Here are some of my favourites. We did a few outfit changes from my studio wardrobe with some gorgeous light and airy looks and a few elegant dark and moody ones. I honestly think I could have dressed this woman in a potato sack and she would have still looked amazing. I'm hoping I get to meet her new little girl soon any day now when she comes back for newborn portraits!
This gorgeous little newborn baby girl came to visit a couple of weeks ago and was just too precious. She was the only girl I photographed in two months of being booked solid with boys so I had fun playing with some of my girly headbands and pretty things!
Landon (love his name), made me look good. He was a very sleepy baby, just how I like them!! His older two brothers were very cute too and I bet they're pretty excited to have a new playmate. 3.5 year old Trevor was totally into having his picture taken but 1.5 yr old Kenton wasn't too keen at all. We were able to get his interest just long enough to composite the two boys together in the photos (combining two photos together in photoshop) so their Mama got some great sibling shots :)
This little cutie may have been born here in the US but she's an Aussie, just like me! I was so pleased to meet her Mum and Dad and hear some Aussie accents again. She was an absolute trooper and was very kind to me, sleeping like a dream in her session and didn't poop or pee on me at all! 😜 What a gorgeous little thing she is :)
Sweet little brand new Alana come to visit me last year with her 3 year old twin older brother and sister. Full of lots of energy and personality, these siblings were SO much fun to work with and OMG, I just LOVE how these turned out! After we did the sibling photos at the beginning of the session, the twin's nanny came to collect them so Mom and I were able to concentrate on getting some solo shots of beautiful Alana. Here's just a few of my favourites from her newborn session.
