Parents often say to us, we have plenty of shots of our kids, but one of us always has to be taking the photos! Now is your chance to get some images of you all as a family. We encourage families to hang out together, do what you normally do at home and in your favourite locations, and forget that we're there! We love the 'moments between the moments' of siblings playing, the times of grumpiness, cheekiness, laughter and intimacy, that happen on a daily basis and rarely get captured.
We are in awe of this 'everyday miracle'. A new life created, being nurtured and growing within. It's about as awe-inspiring and sacred as you can get. Several ancient cultures used to worship the voluptuous 'mother goddess'. Then came a time where women covered up their pregnant bellies and wouldn't have thought to celebrate this stage of their lives in photos, let alone frame prints or scrapbook! Thankfully, much has changed. Proudly capture your rounded, fertile magnificence, and see yourself as we and everyone else see you - supremely special and gorgeous. It's a relatively brief time in a woman's life (unless you are like my great-great grandmother Euphemia who had 13 bubbas!). We recommend having your shoot around the 7- 8 month mark. Book in nice and early so you don't miss the window. You'll have a nice big shape and won't feel as physically uncomfortable as near the end. You'll also need to decide whether you want to include any other children, your partner (or pets!) in some of the images.
It's important to have a photographer present at your birth who is sensitive to the dynamics of the labour space, and the shifting needs of the mother and her care-givers. These can be some of the most treasured and powerful photos you'll ever have taken.
Most children are a dream to photograph so don't believe the old cliché. They are so perfectly candid and open, their personalities already beaming out. Immersed in play, exploring the world around them, they are a joy. We pride ourselves on capturing your kidlets in their natural element.
Weddings, corporate events, big kids and little kids' birthdays, mothers' groups, you name it, we're happy to shoot it and bring our unique warmth and vision to your event.
