Family, love and all that stuff

I don't often post Maternity, or Family photos...the adults are often shy about having their photos plastered all over the place and fair enough...even though they look gorgeous!

This Mama was particularly brave, I could tell she was really nervous about having her photo taken...you know I'm the same? I love being behind the lens but in front of it I don't know how to sit or look or smile.  I'm not going to post their family photos, or those with dad and the kids, trust me they are gorgeous too, but this one photo makes me tear up every time I see it.

Because she was there, she showed up and braved up and had her photo taken with partner and kids, her beautiful family and you know what makes me cry as I write this? Those children will get so much from these photos...the love and adoration their parents have for them and one another just seeps out from the photos on the wall and into the subconscious minds of those little ones as they grow up. Children are more centred, balanced and confident when they grow up with photos of themselves on display, and photos where your parents are loving on you - that just gets under your skin and says "I'm loved, I'm lovable" such huge and powerful messages from a seemingly small photo on the wall.

Thanks Nicole and family.

Ann

What a wonderful day, not only did I get to photograph this beautiful little girl, but her big brother as well! Here is a selection of images from their gallery.

Baby Tuaniu

Tuaniu and his doting Mum and Dad drove a long way to their newborn shoot, which made meeting them even more special.

He is a beautiful boy, who grinned and smiled and slept, allowing me to capture many wonderful moments.

Tuaniu's Mum has been very successful, reaching the pinnacle in her chosen field, but I get the feeling that this little boy is her heart's gold. Please enjoy this snapshot of images from his gallery.

Baby Rico

Little Rico arrived all bundled up and sleeping sweetly. A gorgeous wee boy who showed me his beautiful big eyes for a little while before falling sound asleep. Mummy and Daddy were able to relax  for a while in the lounge while Rico and I took lots of cute photos!

Baby Mia

We had a pre-consult about Mia's session and decided that as it was Spring, maybe including some cherry blossom in the shoot would be nice. Mia's Mummy wanted soft, light pinks and creams, so blossom worked well.

Mia was a dream, she slept and slept and even posed herself when moved!

Baby Arlo

Arlo is gorgeous, already you can both Mummy and Daddy in his tiny features and expressions. We had a lovely morning and he had a good long sleep in front of the camera!
