Virginia…Brisbane Newborn Photographer

Today we write our story…

Rich with history and love…

A tale of star crossed lovers…

Blessed from up above.

Those who’ve come before us…

watch down on us this day…

as we start our own journey…

with guidance on the way.

Our duo grows in fullness…

as we’re blessed with sweetest love…

our hearts were never fuller…

we welcomed little dove.

A baby girl to celebrate…

unite us all this day…

heal our broken hearts…

and teach along the way.

 

This session y’all…there was so much love, so many tears, so much joy. My heart is literally exploding. I always feel blessed when friends choose me to tell their stories and this one is no exception. Today we captured beautiful memories, shared rich traditions and celebrated those that have come before and couldn’t be with this sweet family today. I hope I did this tale the honour that it deserves.

World…Meet Virginia…she’s new here.x. Newborn baby girl sleeping on pink lace blanket wearing pink flower halo

Today’s divine little love was named after her great grandmother, who sadly passed away before this sweet girl came to life….an elegant loving woman, a true saint on earth, so of course it could not be more perfect to have a part of her passed down. She loved all things lace and so we used that today to have her part of these new memories. We also included her stunning necklace that Mumma even wore on her wedding day. A beautiful tribute to a much loved lady. I can tell you…there was not a dry eye in sight.

We also dressed this sweet girl in the most darling knitted pieces that belonged to her Papa when he was a baby and a bonnet that is over 45yrs old and has been passed down through Papa’s family. This rich history makes my heart sing and is exactly what these sessions are all about. To include something with a story already and capture new memories to pass down to further generations is everything. Newborn baby girl laying on cream fur wearing cream knit outfit with blanket

Now she was due on the 4th July…Mumma is American, her great grandfathers served in the military…it was only fitting we created a set up (or two!) to celebrate this part of her story. A little bitter sweet as those that should be here from that side of the world have sadly been held up thanks to the current climate…although I am hoping they are all tuning in thanks to modern technology!

And lastly, we captured memories and the story of a little love who came before this sweet girl but couldn’t remain earthside…but who sent Mumma and Papa a hand picked rainbow from heaven. A little start to heal their broken hearts.

I had this stunning outfit custom made and sent all the way from Canada. It arrived late thanks to covid, literally hours before she was born and was so meant to be. Encapsulating everything Mumma’s heart needed, celebrating her sweet rainbow sent from her sibling in heaven, Mumma’s special colours…oh my heart. Big thanks to my beautiful friend and vendor Holly at Pup and Frank Photography Props.

Mumma asked for a gorgeous gallery filled with dusty pinks, taupes and greys…I just adore these colours together.

I feel so immensely blessed for the privilege of telling this story, of being given the honour of sharing it through imagery with all of you. Despite a pandemic and the enormous distance over the seas, still being able to share this little love with her family far away. Of celebrating a new addition and honouring those that came before her. Of giving this sweet family the priceless gift of a moment captured in time.

Rebecca and Cam, thank you for choosing me, thank you for sharing your love with me.

Virginia..thank you for being gorgeous you.x.
