Quite a while back we had the privilege of photographing the lovely Nichole. Nichole took a little convincing to have her maternity photographs taken, she felt big and not overly photogenic, and only had a week or so to go before giving birth. (Nichole is a friend of ours and after my repeated hassling on the subject she finally agreed to step out in front of the camera).
I’m so pleased she agreed! I cherish my own maternity photos and love seeing other women embrace maternity photography! After seeing the photos, Nichole sent Adam and I a sweet message thanking us for giving her such beautiful images, and a self esteem boost (I think the comment from one of our other lovely clients on facebook calling her a “Model” was the cherry on top hehe.
A few of our clients out there will recognise our beautiful friend Kate- Kate shot many a wedding for us before meeting the man of her dreams, moving down south and starting a family.
Kate we are so happy for you! Congratulations on the arrival of your amazingly beautiful little boy- we are looking forward to meeting him and having some cuddles xx
Kate’s shoot was hilarious! We basically drove around Byron, running away from the rain (unsuccessfully). It pretty much rained the whole time. Adam photographed away, while me and our little guy splashed in puddles and climbed trees. At the end of the shoot- the heavens opened and we had to run through beach bushland for 15mins in torrential rain as it was getting dark- it was rather intense, but nothing a hot shower, a heater and some gourmet pizzas couldn’t make up for!
And now to get a bit of Ben Fold Five stuck in your head too (I’ve been humming whilst prepping the images)… “She never get’s wet, she smiles, and it’s a rainbow! Da-da da-da da-da di da I wanna be Kate!” (Who doesn’t want to look like that while pregnant).
Kates gorgeous hair and makeup was by the talented Alex Ouston Makeup Artist & Hair Stylist.
The AMAZING floral hair masterpiece was created by Roberta from Green and Bloom Wedding Flowers. If you are getting married (or need flowers for anything) and have not chosen a florist yet, you must go and check out her artistry
(Oh and as a side note- the cute pic of Adam and I on our blog homepage was taken by Kate!)

Cindy has been following our work for quite sometime, so we were looking forward to finally meeting her, and photographing her little family and baby bump.
Cindy wanted rainforest, Andrew wanted water, so we combined the two and had a great afternoon trooping around Mt Tamborine dodging the rain.
Their little guy is just the cutest, so I have probably included way too many photos, but it was just so hard cut it back!
A month or so back Adam flew back to New Zealand yet again to photograph another beautiful wedding. While he was there, he managed to catch up with some wonderful friends and past clients of ours, to photograph “their” baby bump!
Adam has known Jared for many years, and we were blessed to meet Fou a couple of months before their wedding. Since meeting Fou, I have felt privileged to witness her amazing faith and optimistic character in facing challenges many of us could never even dream of. She is truly an inspiration to me as a woman, and I am so excited to meet their beautiful miracle bub in a few months time.
We love you guys xx
Oh and the shoot took place near Mt Victoria overlooking Auckland (it was freezing apparently!).
Kedah came to have her pregnancy photos done with only a few days remaining till her little man arrived… (no surprises he ran a little late- look at that cute little package!)
We started the shoot off with couple shoot at sunrise down the Gold Coast. It was an absolutely beautiful morning! The day after the shoot was Valentines day and Dee bought Kedah a couple of gorgeous gifts… so as a surprise for Dee, Kedah came out again for part II of her maternity shoot, needless to say Dee LOVED them (and how could he not, he adores his girl!
For whatever reason, doesn’t the picture on the right remind you of Bob Marley? Or is it just me?!
I was so excited when I found these flowers on the side of the road. How perfect are they? 🙂
