Megan & Brent’s family session {maternity, newborn & family photography in Auckland, Palmerston North, & Christchurch}

A couple weeks back while I was in Palmy shooting, I had the pleasure of meeting Megan, Brent, and their two lovely boys who came out from Wanganui for me .  I was excited and nervous to finally meet Megan who is an awesome child photographer herself – pressure!!  Lol but we had a blast, and I even scored a dinner invite from their son afterwards!  Megan told me afterwards that according to Brent “that was kind a fun”  Love it when the boys enjoy it too!  Pleasure meeting you all finally!

Mother & Son {Auckland maternity photography, newborn photography, family photographer & Christchurch & Palmerston North photographer}

This is the beautiful Sarah and her handsome 5 month old son Lochlan.  He was such a great little guy, happy as a clam to be moved around, laid down, held up, all without making a squeak for the whole shoot at the Auckland domain!  Unfortunately dad couldn’t make the shoot, but I hope they will still treasure these photos of mother and son, such a special memory it will be!  Awesome meeting you Sarah, can’t wait to catch up again!

Getting acquainted with my power tools {Newborn photographer Auckland, Palmerston North Photographer}

I love power tools.  Always have.  I was the girl who took wood working for a few terms in High School – and not just for the boys :)  And given that we sold or gave away pretty much all our furniture upon moving “back” to Canada, the new house is now a little empty.  Perfect chance to start over and choose pieces that I really love.  I have wanted a farmhouse/rustic table and bench for years, so figured this was the perfect time to make one.  I got the timber from a local mill and decided to go all out and build a full 2.5m 10 seater one!  It’s pretty darn huge, and luckily the room can handle it because it’s awesome.  The grain is beautiful!  Although I’ll admit it seems much bigger than the tape layout I had done…  Never mind, I LOVE it!  I’ll just need to make sure that the next house I move to has a room big enough for it because I’m not giving it up! hahaha  At some point I’ll get the chairs and a burlap runner that I’ve already decided on in my head, but for now I’m just enjoying having a table to sit around – one that I’m sure will be a centre for family activity for years to come.

Go ahead and give building something a try!  It’s fun, way less expensive than the shops, and you will be oh so proud once done.  If you need a good starting point check out Ana White – awesome free plans for all types of projects.

Have a good weekend everyone!

3 months young {Newborn photography Auckland, Newborn photography Christchurch, Baby photography Palmerston North, Maternity photography Auckland

This is little baby M.  She is 3 months young.  She is very special to me because she is my first niece :)  We had tried to organize a shoot sooner, but life just got in the way.   But luckily I was able to snap these in about a 10 min window between showers for mom and dad after a sleepover at my house.  Worked a treat and I’m so glad I was able to capture these for my family.  I think these may be some of my favourite images to date, love it!
