A Palmy session for this lovely family! {Auckland & Palmerston North Maternity, Newborn, & Family Photography}

A couple weeks back I was able to return to Palmerston North for a special weekend.  It went something like this…  Lovely chats with dear friends who almost all had something exciting happening in their lives.  A movie night in my friends barn with probably 20 members of her family – where it was projected big on the wall and we stayed up late until finally falling asleep in our sleeping bags.  Eating far too much at my favourite cafe so I’d be filled up until my next visit.  And to top it off, I ALSO got to catch up with this amazing family!  What a weekend!

I first met Tracey and Jarrod, and their little family, more than 2 years ago when I photographed them one evening at the beach.  So I was really excited to be asked back to update their family photos!  Little Leah was only a few months old, and she’s now a full-blown running and talking almost 3 year old!  It’s crazy to see them change like that!  It really doesn’t feel that long ago.

We met by the river and were greeted by perfect evening light!  We had a fun little shoot with smiles and laughs, made some beautiful images, and I didn’t think it couldn’t get any better!  But then Tracey said in a msg after choosing her canvas and prints that she “literally had tears of excitement, and would be waiting on the doorstep for the courier”  I’m so lucky to be brought into people’s lives, and asked to create something they will truly treasure.  Often it goes beyond just the delivery of the final products, and friendships are born :)  Lucky girl I am!

So without further delay, here are just few of my favourite images for our shoot.  Hope you enjoy!

2 weeks new {Maternity & Newborn photography Auckland}

Just a little blog today sharing some images from this shoot with the beautiful baby R who was just 2 weeks new.  She was such a small little sweetie, which was a big change after my last couple of big boys who were almost double her size.  She was wide awake for most of the shoot, but that’s ok we got some beautiful photos of her and those big, dark, old soul eyes, that are taking the world in :)  And thanks to the amazing family who wouldn’t let me leave both after the shoot, and after the ordering session, until I filled my tummy with delicious homemade meals.  Yumo!

A Christmas bump and baby {Pregnancy & baby photography Auckland}

Just before Christmas I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Sheree and her baby bump.  We planned an evening beach session, and I brought along a few different fabrics I thought would be great for wrapping into dresses and skirts.  The night was perfect, we had the beach to ourselves, and I could not be happier with the images!  Probably one of my favourite maternity photography sessions yet!  I’m so pleased Sheree really wanted to capture this special time and exist in photos for herself and her family.

Not long after, little baby C decided he didn’t want to risk missing out on seeing Santa so arrived just in time on the 24th.  I really enjoyed getting my dose of newborn snuggles during his little home session, especially with him and his loving big sister and brother.  I have a feeling these 3 will be quite a little crew.  Just a beautiful family, and I’m really looking forward to handing over their large wall print I’m sure will be a centrepiece in their home.

A weekend of creativity {Auckland newborn, maternity, & family photographer}

This past long weekend I was lucky enough to be a part of a creative collaboration that took place in Raglan.  We had models, a makeup artist, costumes, props, an amazing batch hook-up, late night curry and of course wine!  The whole reason the trip was first arranged was that a few awesome photographers and I wanted to try stretching our creative minds.  Get out of the daily work.  And what better way than to do it with industry friends where it’s all about experimenting, learning, and of course fun.  A safe zone where some ideas may soar, and some may fall flat on our face.

This is very much out of my comfort zone in terms of editing, a first actually, but it’s fun to stretch those muscles and see what comes of it.  I’ve got a few more I’ll be working on, but for now I’ll just show this :)  I saw this image as a really soft, almost dreamlike scene from another time.  I hope I’ve been able to pass that feeling onto you as well.
