A little bit longer... with Alexandra, Jeremy and Jack

Maternity photographer central coast

Alex and Jeremy were a little nervous when they booked in for their maternity photography session. They claimed they weren’t really photo session types and were awkward in photos. Fortunately for me they had been referred to be me by one of their good friends - so they already knew my approach was pretty relaxed. I told them what I tell all nervous families - if you feel awkward just reach out to whoever is close to you and interact with them… cuddle with your child, hold your partner’s hand, engage in conversation and just deflect your attention away from the camera and towards one of your loved ones.

And these guys nailed it. Their gallery of images was so full of love because in each and every image they were giving their full attention to each other.

Their six year old son Jack was such a typical little boy - so full of joy and energy and great ideas. Jack wasn’t keen on posing, which is how I like it, but he LOVED chatting away while snuggling up with his family. Because Jack was relaxed and happy cuddled up with his parents, I was able to capture tons of gorgeous images of this beautiful family.

As they had booked in for a longer maternity session we were able to go to different locations to get a variety of beautiful images. We had a cruisy afternoon on their deck as they lazed around in the day bed, enjoying the sea breeze on a hot summer’s afternoon. Alex is super resourceful and had managed to get this day bed made to her specifications - at a fraction of the retail cost.

Their bedroom had beautiful light so we were able to get some gorgeous baby bump photos in there. Once the heat of the day had passed we headed down to the lake where this super mum jumped on her SUP for a paddle around the lake. Jack was able to run amok in the shallows and swim in the warm water.

I am so looking forward to spending more time with this super cool family when their new baby arrives soon.

Short n sweet… with the Wilbow family

Central Coast Maternity Photographer

This gorgeous family were still getting ready when I arrived for their maternity photography session. Dear little Leni had on her prettiest pink dress and her mummy Liz was brushing her hair. It was lovely to capture a few photos of the two of them sitting quietly together and having some mummy-daughter time. I had to laugh though, it wasn’t long until Leni decided that her little red riding dress was much better. Lucky Dean and Liz are so cruisy - they let Leni do her thing, which meant Leni was happy and confident throughout the session.

Liz has been on bed rest since 23 weeks and making it to 31 weeks is her personal best for a pregnancy, as their daughter Leni arrived at 30 weeks. Her belly is looking awesome already – I find it amazing that a woman’s body has the ability to grow and change to fit a baby. I can’t wait see how Liz’s belly grows and changes over the next few weeks.

I love when families choose to wait to find out the sex of their newborn baby. Surprises are my favourite. Big sister Leni has her heart set on a little sister – she even has names picked out and ready to go. Mum and dad have been gently preparing her for the fact that she may indeed end up with a little brother. She’s not all that fussed – I’m pretty sure she thinks they’re wrong anyway!!

Their maternity photography session was so relaxed - we just hung out at their home. Leni had time to do some drawing, practice writing her name, jump on the trampoline and ride her scooter with their dog Jet.

So looking forward to catching up with these guys for their newborn photography session once their baby arrives!
