I had the lovely Hayley from Stained In Ink Photography in for a back to nature maternity session. I've known Hayley and her husband for many many years now so I am truly blessed to be able the capture the joy and excitement of their second pregnancy.
There are so many amazing images from this session and I had a blast capturing them. I'd like to thank the owners of this private property for allowing me the use of it and a massive shout out to Erin for assisting on the shoot you always make it fun and have me laughing like crazy.
A special mention to Hayley's mum who made all these amazing maternity gowns you will see throughout her sneak peeks.

Earlier this year I had the lovely Alaine in from Alaine Ylias Photography in for a one on one mentoring session learning natural and Off camera lighting, we were not only blessed with the most amazing and stunning location on a private property but we were also blessed with some beautiful models to help practice on and Elise was one of them at 33 weeks pregnant and looking ever so radiant and glowing like any new first time mum does, "a moment in my tummy, forever in my heart" would have to sum up the feeling.
Not only were we getting eaten alive by the mozzies there but she was super keen to do anything that I asked of her, "here take you clothes off, lets put this wrap on you", or "can you please sit on this log, but please don't fall in", I can be quite bossy out on shoots but its only cause I want the best for you :-)
Thankyou Elise for modelling for myself and Aliane and I am looking forward to meeting your little man one day.
