Mumma’s little man…

you grew inside my heart…

Mumma’s little man…

I’ve loved you from the start.

Mumma’s little man…

you’ve filled our hearts with joy…

Mumma’s little man…

so proud, our little boy.

We went out with a bang today….our last session before I begin maternity leave and my oh my, the most darling little man arrived in the studio.

Smoochy lips….pinchy cheeks and the most divine skin….why are boys always so blessed?

Master Roman brought his mumma…his papa is still away for work and hasn’t even met him yet…to the studio for a very special session for a very special little man. I think I am going to have to let this sweet boys images talk for themselves…cause I seriously could have kept this lovely boy (apart from the fact he didn’t really like shoes or sleeping!!)

World….Meet Roman.

Roman thank you so much for arriving before my own little Mini so I had time to make your session happen…clearly it was meant to be and I absolutely adored photographing you.

Kyani and Cruz you have the most darling little man and I feel so blessed you chose me to capture special memories for your new family…especially considering I am meeting darling Roman even before his Papa!

Psalms 139: 13 & 14

For you formed my inward parts;

you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.

I praise you, for I am fearfully & wonderfully made.

Wonderful are your works;

my soul knows it very well.

Newborn baby girl on cream blanket sleeping on bible with crownToday…sweet Myra brought her mumma and papa to the studio for a very special session.

Myra is a miracle in every essence of the word….her mumma and papa have dreamed of her for such a long time and thankfully their wishes came true. The fact that she made it to the studio today is also a miracle….considering her mumma and I are due just days apart and have spent our entire pregnancies hoping I would still be able to capture special memories once Myra was earthside. Amazingly, she arrived a little early, and my own little one has held on and today…true magic happened.

World….Meet Myra.x.

Newborn baby girl sleeping on cream flokati wrapped in cream shawl and bonnetMyra also brought some very special things to her session, her grandfather’s bible in the first image and this divine knitted shawl her mumma made included. Nothing fills my heart more than including history and tradition in my sessions.

Hayden and Jess, Myra is all sorts of divine and I am so grateful you chose to share her with me.

Today we were blessed with not one but three gorgeous boys in the studio and it was total love overload! The divine master Eddie brought his adorable big brothers to his newborn session and they were beyond sweet to capture all together.

I’ve known Eddie’s papa for many years and it always gives me great joy to see my friends on their journey’s to parenthood….this little family was no exception.

With a spike of dark hair, beautiful dark eyes and the sweetest little round face, Eddie was the perfect mix of all of his family and had the most peaceful personality to boot!

World…Meet Eddie!

Never I imagined…

You’d come to fill my heart…

But oh I how I dreamed…

I’ve loved you from the start.

Little man you’ve joined our world…

And brought us so much joy…

Welcome Little Man…our darling little boy.

Today we had the absolute joy of capturing very special memories of the most darling little man…a teeny tiny peanut who slept up an absolute storm and was an absolute pleasure to snuggle in the studio!

Phil and Jodie are dear family friends, and I had the pleasure of photographing their daughter Isla as a newborn years ago. Today they returned with their newest addition, and adorable little man. I always feel so blessed when friends ask me to capture these magical moments in their journey and even more so when the return time and time again.

World meet….Austin.

And I bet these two are going to be little mates as Austin grows throughout the years so we wanted a special memory of the beginning of their friendship.

Newborn baby boy sleeping in round cane basket with brown wrap and blanket with moose toy on wooden floor with maple leaves Austin brought a very special quilt with him today that captures the colours and the themes of his nursery so we did lots of special set ups in blue’s, grey’s and greens…I think the colours suited him perfectly and the quilt was absolutely divine.

They were so sweet to watch together and I am so glad we could capture this special moment together.

Newborn baby boy sleeping in wooden bed with blue blanket and sibling sisterJodie and Phil thank you for trusting me with your family again…I am so excited to watch both of your gorgeous little ones grow across the years. Austin is the perfect addition to your little home and I could not be happier for you both.

Austin…please come back for snuggles any time!

Well it seemed like yesterday….

When the world was lookin dark…

It felt so cold and grey.

Till that day you came along…

My heart was empty like the soul was missing from my song.

Hey little girl look what you do…

Hey little girl…oh I love you.

Today we had the loveliest little princess in the studio…the squishiest cheeks, the smooshiest lips…and the most divine little whirl on the top of her head.

Cailin’s mumma and I work together in the NICU and it has been a pure joy to watch her discover her path to motherhood. After lots of hard work and even more love, her dreams have come true in her little darling and I feel so privileged that she chose me to capture their journey.

World…Meet Cailin.

Newborn baby girl sleeping on cream blanket with knitted wrap and bow tieback Newborn baby girl sleeping on cream blanket with knitted wrap and bow tiebackI adore when families bring special things to include in their sessions and this shawl was no exception…Cailin’s mumma made this especially for her before she was born.

I have to add…the tiebacks in the last three pictures were made by one of my favourite vendors (Gumnutandbloom Photoprops) who is also a nurse and works with Cailin’s mumma…talk about small world!

Jenny…I am so proud of your journey and that you have realized your dreams in Cailin’s safe arrival.
