Growing up, everyone I knew seemed to have parents who didn't love each other the way Disney taught me they should, or were divorced or getting divorced (this is the #1 reason I never wanted to be a family lawyer, but despite my best efforts I still fell into it).
Launching this business on the side was such an important creative outlet for me, but at the same time it also helped to balance my life out and keep my from turning cynical.
For every family that was falling apart, I would meet people who love each other so deeply and joyfully and openly, people who would share that love with me - it was, and still is, a revelation to me.
It's such an honour to be invited into your most vulnerable space, to witness and capture your love for you. I know how precious it is, and I don't take it lightly.
It's even more special to me when I meet people with souls as beautiful as Lena and Naran, full of kindness, warmth and love. You are two of my favourite kind of people to work with, and it was such a joy capturing the love and happiness you have for each other and your bump ♥
We spent some time at the Fitzroy Gardens, capturing their love for each other and their sweet baby bump a few weeks before baby Emily entered the world.
I always fall a little bit in love with my clients, and with their little ones, and baby Emily is no exception to the rule; and who wouldn't fall in love with this bundle of PURE.SQUISH?!
These are some of my favourite images ever
If you are interested in having your bump and baby captured, please contact me now to reserve your session as there are limited spaces each month.
I was worried that I wouldn't look like me - I might be too staged or that I'd be rocking too many 'fake' smiles. But Lecinda is one of the best photographers I have ever worked with; she made me feel so comfortable and calm (and even beautiful), and I knew I could trust her. I also loved all our communication in the lead up to the shoot and that was the decider in booking with her. She took a genuine interest in my business - who I am, who I work with and what I do, and showed a real understanding in what I wanted to achieve and how we could best do that.
When I saw the images for the first time it felt like I was seeing myself in my business for the very first time! I was over the moon with the images, Lecinda captured me perfectly and her beautiful images gave me an instant boost of confidence and huge motivation to get my website live.
I would book with her again in a heartbeat!
