Hold him a little longer…

Rock him a little more…

Read him another story…

You’ve only read him four…

Let him sleep on your shoulder…

Rejoice in his happy smile…

He is only a little boy…

For such a short while.

Today I had the most darling little man in the studio. He literally did not make a peep the entire day. Just snuggled up and slept the day away. And he was ever so cute! He brought his gorgeous Mumma and Papa with him to the studio and we had the most lovely session. A stunning collection of images to go in his adorable new nursery….lots of blues and grey’s. This little guy was actually a surprise gender, such a rare thing these days, but the best way in my opinion. So to add to the grey’s and white’s in his nursery Mumma and Papa chose the most divine shades of blue. I can not wait to share some special images from their session.

World….Meet Jack.x.

Newborn baby boy sleeping in dads armsBefore too long your life will change…

Becoming something new…

You’ll hold so close and tenderly…

A tiny part of you…

You’ll feel a love you can’t explain…

That strengthens every day…

You’re going to be a Daddy…

And you’ll be perfect in every way…

As soon as you hold your child close…

You’ll start to understand…

The smallest fingers hold your heart…

Before they hold your hand.

 

Today’s Papa was ever so sweet with his darling little man…there was not a dry eye in the room. This right here, these moments, is exactly why I do what I do.

Genevieve and Blake thank you for finding me….and sharing your darling little man with me…what a privilege.

Jack you are kinds of lovely.x.

Did you know what a special day today is?

National Rainbow Baby Day held on August 22nd remembers babies “born after a miscarriage, stillbirth, or passing away of an infant”.

Each baby I have the honour of photographing is special and loved but some are yearned for that tiny bit more. Working with families who have experienced the loss of their baby fills my heart entirely. There is just something extra about giving to a family who have lived their darkest days and are working towards hope.

A rainbow baby is the term used for a healthy baby born after miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal or infant loss. A gift to a family who has survived the darkest of storms, a rainbow of hope. The rainbow doesn’t negate the storm but is a light when all hope has been lost.

The birth of a rainbow baby can often be a time of joy and healing, but it can also be a time of overwhelming anxiety, fear and guilt. A rainbow will never be a replacement for the life that has passed, the emotional turmoil that this new pregnancy brings can often be daunting for a mumma and papa’s already fragile heart. Conflicting emotions of honouring a baby who has died while celebrating a new life can be a time of confusion for parents.

I feel entirely blessed to have had the privilege of sharing in so many stories of hope over the years. Of meeting so many rainbows. Of celebrating the lives that were lost before they arrived. It is such an honour to share in their stories. And in doing that, I hope in turn, I am opening the conversation on loss, breaking barriers of the taboo that we should not talk of such things, giving families the consent to speak of their loved losses and showing other families still in the depths of darkness that there is hope after your storm.

I would love to share with you some of the vulnerable mumma/papa hearts that have shared their stories with me and of course their sweet rainbows but I would also love to capture your journey. If you or someone you know has experienced the loss of their little loves and are expecting a rainbow please get in touch, I would be honoured to share in your journey.

As a photographer the true honour of telling a family’s story is not lost on me…these stories all the more raw and special. Thank you a million times over for having the courage to step out of the darkness and share your losses as well as your rainbows.x.

Please take the time to click on each of the links and read these beautiful families stories.

“It is understood that the beauty of a rainbow

does not negate the ravages of any storm…

When a rainbow appears,

it does not mean the storm never happened

or that we are not still dealing with its aftermath…

It means that something beautiful and full of light

has appeared in the midst of the darkness and clouds…

Storm clouds may still hover

but the rainbow provides a counterbalance of

colour, energy and hope.”

No one else will ever know

the strength of my love for you…

After all…

You’re the only one who

knows what my heart sounds like

from the inside.

Sometimes people come into your lives from the most unusual places but it’s like they were always there and you never knew they were missing. Today’s gorgeous mumma is that friend. We met many years ago online in and IVF group (kinda sounds like dating, right?), both on the rocky roller coaster of infertility. In an enormous group, we found each other and we’ve stuck together ever since. Amazingly we both got pregnant at the same time and our little miracles were due just day’s apart…which sadly meant I couldn’t capture special memories of her first little man so you can imagine my excitement when they decided to roll that IVF dice again. I don’t know who was more surprised when this little pink princess arrived (we were all convinced she was a he!!) and I was completely over joyed to have them in the studio today. Sometimes, I have the ability to give gifts to the most deserving of people, and today was one of those days. I’ll let mumma share their story and I’ll sneak a few adorable photo’s in the mix….

It was 7 years ago when I decided to take the plunge into the world of online dating and boy is that something I’m happy to never have to do again. While riding the wave of the online dating world it helped me discover that I had to meet someone that was 100% different to what I’d gone for in past relationships and then I met Jason. We had our first date and upon concluding the evening I noted that he was rough around the edges, not good with emotions and affection but our conversation that night, for some reason, had me wanting to go out with him again and now the rest is history.

1.5 years down the road we were engaged and to be married 12 months later. By the time our wedding rolled around we had been trying for a baby for almost 12 months with no success. So after countless medical tests and investigations, what felt like a million negative pregnancy tests and 3 failed rounds of clomid we skipped the honeymoon and we jumped into the world of IVF. From our first round we ended up with only 2 embryos. The embryologist sat on the other end of the phone while I sobbed thinking how could we only get two? She ensured me that both were graded the highest possible mark and that I needed to relax and take a breath. I did just that and now two years later we have our two year old son Theodore who is affectionately known as Teddy and sweet Miss Clarabelle. Pregnancy was not kind to me and both babies came early, which in itself was stressful, but I now sit back and look at our babies and think how lucky we are. One round of IVF, which may not have yielded great results embryo wise, but we have two babies from two embryos and one of each gender. Motherhood and fatherhood for Jason and myself has been absolutely incredible and I’ve loved watching Jason and I grow as not only parents but also as husband and wife over the last two years.

World…Meet Clarabelle.x.

I can not imagine my youngest, the same age as Teddy, sitting still in the studio, so Teddy did such an amazing job! Thank you for being such an awesome big brother gorgeous boy.

Clarabelle, I loved you before you were even dreamt of and I am so grateful you are here safely now in your families arms.

Amanda and Jason, what a gift to watch you grow and flourish as parents these past few years and to have the privilege of capturing these memories for you today is priceless. Thank you for trusting me with your loves.x.

“There was once a little girl…

with eye’s so bright and blue…

a smile to melt your heart…

and a spirit that was true.

She joined our little family…

like she was always here…

our darling little Maddi…

our treasure oh so dear”.

Today I had the sweetest little love in the studio…once she had filled her little belly she slept up a storm and we captured some of the most amazing memories for her Mumma and Papa. Who caught the live feed? She also had the most incredible facial expressions…all of the feels in one session…grumpy old man with a receding hair line…sad bubba with a pouty bottom lip and of course the most adorable dimple smile. I can’t wait to share some gorgeous photo’s and I am sure you’ll agree, she.is.divine!

This session was especially planned, like all my sessions, around the colours in her nursery, Mumma and Papa’s favourite colours and the feel and decor of their home. I want these images to hang on their walls for many years to come so I am so glad we could work together to make this magic happen. The family also brought a few special things to include in the session which means the images have all the more importance and meaning and I just adore that.

World…Meet Madeline.x.

Twinkle twinkle little star….

Do you know how loved you are…

Wished and wanted for so long…

Our fight for you, brave and strong…

Twinkle twinkle little love…

Sent to us from up above…

Precious girl how blessed are we…

Let’s live together…happily.

 

Every session I do is special for so many different reasons but today’s session has twinkled in my heart for so very long. I first met this beautiful family years ago, when I received a frantic message from a friend. I often get similar messages but it went along the lines of ‘help….my friend has just had a prem baby, can you check in on her’. The next day I set about finding this friend of a friend when I was back at work in the NICU….and it was there that I met sweet Ayla, teeny tiny and literally fighting for her life. I met her gorgeous mumma and papa and sat beside them on many highs and lows of their NICU journey. Finally, Ayla was strong enough to head home so of course we had to have her in the studio. At a mere 92 days young, she was better behaved than some of the mischievous newborns I have in the studio!!! We captured some gorgeous memories of Ayla that I know her family treasure to this day. So of course you can imagine my excitement when mumma got in touch to say that another sweet miracle was on the way! After a very long 9mths and many up’s and down’s their gorgeous new addition is safely here. I’ll let mumma share their story and I’ll share some sweet photo’s along the way…..

We had spent the morning joking about just how much our lives were going to change when our first child arrived in a few months. By 4pm that afternoon, our beautiful daughter was in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit with a long fight ahead of her. We wouldn’t meet her until 8pm that night. Ayla was born at 25weeks +1 weighing only 790grams. She needed help to breath and required constant monitoring of her heart and oxygen levels. Her skin was too fragile for us to touch. Our lives had changed forever at that very moment. Having a baby in the NICU is a tough journey with many ups and downs. Many missed “firsts”, or celebrating milestones you never imagined you would experience. Learning to be patient and take it a day at a time. Having so many questions that there are no answers to. Not what we were expecting as first time parents.

It was on day 2 of Ayla’s journey that we met Amanda who is one of the many amazing nurses that cared for our baby girl. We were lucky to get to know Amanda through long days spent at Ayla’s bedside. The days were made easier by Amanda’s calming, welcoming and genuinely caring nature. We were excited to learn she was also a newborn photographer. When we saw Amanda’s work, we knew she had to take Ayla’s photos! After 79 long days, we finally got to go home with our baby girl. Amanda gave us the amazing gift of newborn photo’s at 92 days young. Seeing our baby hooked up with tubes, wires and monitors for months, these beautiful pure images had such a healing power. This was the start of a new journey as first time parents. Since coming home Ayla has continued to thrive meeting all of her milestones. She is now a healthy , big 5 (and a half) year old in Prep. She is a cheeky, funny, bright and caring soul. She keeps us on our toes everyday. She is noisy, messy, smelly and loves fart jokes. She is awesome.

She has been asking for a baby sister for forever and ever and ever. And she’s FINALLY here!

World….Meet Daisy.

Ayla, it was such a privilege to care for you all those years ago and seeing you today is exactly why I do what I do. Thank you for bringing your adorable new sister to me today.

Neil and Kris thank you for trusting me to care for your gorgeous girls and for allowing me to capture memories of your journey so far.

And last, but by no means, Daisy, you are all kinds of lovely.x.
