Pregnancy is such a special, unique time in a woman’s life. Its a short time and given a couple of months after the birth its hard to remember what it felt like and if you haven’t documented the time with some photos its hard to remember what you looked like as well.
It was so lovely to hear from Anne who wished to purchase a gift certificate for her son and daughter in law who were expecting in march 2018. She wasn’t sure if Louise would want to use it for a maternity shoot or a newborn shoot which is the beauty of the gift certificates, the recipient can decide which type of shoot they are after. A few months down the line and I received a message from Louise. She wished to have a maternity shoot done. It turns out Louise and I had the same photographer shoot our weddings so that was pretty cool that we had that in common. We set a date and I did a quick scout of a location which I had not used in a while. Now I’ve got to say Scone has been through one heck of a dry patch…..no decent rain since march 2017!!! so it was going to be interesting to find somewhere with some greenery. This creek which I had used only a handful of times was mostly dry…I hand’t seen it this dry in my 7 years living here so that was a bit of a shock to see but on the other hand it was handy as I could drive well into it without fear of bogging the trusty Hilux. There were plenty of good spots here despite the dry conditions.
Louise and Joel were a fantastic couple to work with and Louise was looked so natural with her posing. I’m always a bit hesitant in asking expecting mothers to do certain poses and go in certain places but Louise was a real trooper going into water for some shots……it was worth it though they are terrific. They were very excited about what was to come in the next few weeks and I can tell you know as its a bit down the line that their little baby boy Eddie arrived on the the 9th of March safe and sound which is wonderful news. Many exciting times for them ahead, I wish them all the best. So here is what we captured on that lovely day. Enjoy
