maternity session -- kayla {earth mama}

 "In your womb you cradle magic so powerful you bring life into this world"

Nikita Gill

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.

2017-- year in review

twenty seventeen brought Delphine and Eyre a season of creativity and growth, born from the simple idea of a mother heart the year has seen us dwell in the precious moments of multiple shoots. friends have been forged in our adventures along the way and we are excited to see what the new year will bring. although this humble side project is not all that I envisioned yet, I know that the journey is full of challenges but also many blessings. I hope the new year for us brings more collaborations, features and a whole heap of beautiful shoots. this year we got featured in Lost Journals, Numa Magazine, Child Magazine and our not so little Phoebe got to be in a brand rep shoot for Wild Mountain Child. the year has been full of surprises for us including Little Cashew due early next year, our wee gift from God that has blossomed a newfound love in us both. we are proud of what we have achieved so far on in this creative process and are ready to welcome all that the new year has to offer. 

huge thank you to those who have allowed us into their little lives to capture the beautiful moments and memories. it is because of you that we love what we do and that we can create the raw, realness of our art that speaks volumes. 

all good things are wild & free

brand rep shoot -- wild mountain child

“She was born to be free, let her run wild in her own way and you will never lose her.” 
― Nikki Rowe

the lovely Elise from Wild Mountain Child kindly asked us to do a little brand rep shoot for social media + website relaunch since the gorgeous store located in the mountains is closing and happily welcoming new adventures to be had with an online store. 

Elise does a wonderful job sourcing and curating the beautiful local, ethically handmade treasures she discovers to create a unique, creative and amazing collection of products for little ones. We are excited for this next chapter of Wild Mountain Child and hope it continues to blossom into something special and unseen before. 

We wrangled up our small child, got her dressed in the oh so soft 100% organic cotton "Wild Child" onesie, loaded her Mocka tent from her bedroom into the car, put on her Fantastic Mr Fox socks from Rupert & Milla and ventured not to far from home to a little patch of wilderness locally. Will be honest, there was plenty of tears, drama queen moments and stressful sighs thrown around during the shoot but we created something beautiful, wild + honest in the end. This shoot is the soul of a wild mountain kiddo and probably one of my favourite sessions we have ever done with Phoebe. 

So thankful that Elise thought of us to help with her launch and all the best for this next adventure!
