family session -- mama magic

This mama is a very dear friend of mine and has a special place in my heart. we met a couple of years ago when we conjured up a insanely magical Mad Max inspired shoot on a nomadic beach with fire and had all sorts of crazy adventures. I love hanging out with her and was so so excited to finally get one on one with her and her precious little bebe. The minute I walked into her humble abode I was hit with such a calming presence and some beautiful essential oils. It was so lovely catching up with her and getting to know Cairo in a quiet, relaxed setting {your home is honestly so gorgeous}.

I had Zoey with me and I tried putting her down once and it was pretty much a no go soooo I shot this session with a babe in one arm and a camera in the other. It turned out blurry and not as perfect as I desired but isn't that was motherhood is, isn't that what childbirth and parenting is? messy and imperfect, it’s a learning game and majority of the time a loosing one but we see the beauty in all that mess and it’s honestly one hell of a journey. this session is near to my heart because I can connect to those imperfective but special moments and the moments that I almost missed due to holding a very overtired bebe. I love them so much, they hold some sort of special power over me and through them that is quite tangible. I hope you enjoy admiring this little session and thank you so much Isabel for letting me into your home and capturing these precious moments.

family session -- mama and babe // claire and hazel

we captured Claire and her little family a year ago one evening up in the mountains and it was a lovely little session. We found a little lookout in the midst of Katoomba and thankfully it was a beautiful afternoon. This was my first time shooting in a very long time so I was still getting my bearings and figuring out our new camera but this session was super sweet and little Hazel is so adorable I ended up missing my own babes. Claire is a super creative mama and has her own little business from handmade beauties and thrifty finds {be sure to check it all of here Little Miss Devine

I had the privilege of capturing this beautiful mama when she was pregnant with her first wee bebe {I recall it was a very windy beach afternoon} so when she asked me to capture her in this season of carrying her second blessing to be of course I said yes without hesitation. this time it was a windy mountain afternoon so we all still froze our bollocks off but she shone through the cold winds and allowed me to capture her in this beautiful state, in the midst of pregnancy and just rocking the last trimester. It was my first time shooting in a long long time so it was nice to be in the company of someone so close to me and to be capturing a moment in time that is close to my own heart since becoming a mother also. I cannot wait to meet your little one!

we also had a blast capturing these two lovebirds mountain roaming as the sun set. hit the link here to see that in all its glory over on our sista.
