Mason Family | Melbourne Family Photographer

A few weeks back I was lucky enough to spend the afternoon with this lovely family. Guy + Ness are old friends of mine, the kind you wish you saw more of. Who would have thought that 10years on I’d be playing “What’s the time Mr Wolf,” in a paddock, with their three gorgeous children as I sneakily (and sometimes not so sneakily) tried to capture some lovely moments between them all.

Since having my daughter I’ve been made so aware of how precious it is for parents to have beautiful photos of their family. Sometimes we put this off because we think, “I’ll organise that when I’ve dropped a few kilos, when the weather is better and when we have a little bit more cash.” Which, are valid reasons. But sometimes we just need to make it a priority, because every time we put it off  our babies just grow bigger. They get more hair, more personality and more kissable as time goes on. There are moments that we share as families that sometimes you just wish you had your own paparazzi for.

I absolutely love photographing families like this… candid, natural, some posed but mostly capturing unassuming moments. It’s an area of photography I will be starting to offer later this year. If you are interested in booking a session with me, send me an email, I can send you some info and put you on the wait list  (as sessions are quite limited).

Happy Tuesday!

Evie: Part One

As I lay on the operating table waiting for her to cry I could feel something happening inside. It wasn’t the doctors who were pulling and tugging (and literally pulling my insides out) but the most intense feeling I have ever felt was ballooning within and it was like my heart was… growing bigger. Well, maybe not literally but I could feel my heart exploding and all I wanted to do was meet, kiss and hold my little girl. I heard her cry. I sobbed.

I can’t describe the feeling I felt looking into her eyes, it was overwhelming, amazing, incredible. She was so alert, so focused, so ready to join us, but also… she was ours. She was still, quietly listening to our voices as we said hello and the most beautiful thing was that she recognized them, you could see that in her eyes. My heart was dancing on my chest and I sobbed a little more.

Evie was born seven weeks ago yesterday. The last seven weeks have been the most beautiful, challenging, life changing weeks of my life. From the early morning cuddles to milk-drunk smiles, dozens of nappies, billions of kisses and her sweet little ‘kitten fingers’ slowly dancing across my chest as she feeds, I’ve been learning how to be her Mamma and as I said earlier, increasing my capacity to love. Who would have thought that one little person could make someone such a bundle of emotions!

We are so thankful to our beautiful friend Narrelle from Njoythemoment Photography for capturing these moments for us. These images are so dear to our heart and we can’t thank this lady enough for being willing and able, (and at 32 weeks pregnant herself, what a woman!) it’s the most precious gift we could ever receive. Thank you Narrelle.

If you want to know a few quick labor details… I was induced at 4 days past my due date because the little one didn’t have much fluid left around her. I labored all day (with the help of a freaking awesome epidural… I did try a few hours without it, but man labor pains are mean!) and at the end of the day she got a bit stuck and had to be delivered via cesarean section. I am so thankful that she arrived safe and well.

After the surgery was over I was taken to ‘recovery’ for an hour while Nath and Evie got to know each other upstairs in the nursery. I am so thankful that Narrelle was there to capture those first moments of him and Evie together. Nath sat with her, holding and talking to her for the first hour of her life while they waited. These are all such special photos. *Sigh* Narrelle, you are amazing, how blessed we were to have you there with us.

 

I love being Evie’s Mamma, she has brought so much joy into our life and we have only known her seven weeks, I can only imagine how much more fun our little life is going to get as we get to know her more. Our world has been changed forever and how thankful we are to our God for choosing us to be Evie’s parents.

P.S We are very aware that out little girl looked like a small version of Mother Teresa when she came out, hehehe, we are hoping that she has her heart.

I’m still here…

Hi Friends!

I just wanted to let you know that I’m still here! As you know, my daughter was born recently (oh she is gorgeous!) and the last six weeks have been wonderful, intense, funny, sleepless and increbibly sweet, but have also left me no time to answer emails or put my business brain on! If you have sent me an email enquiring about your big day or other general email then, hold tight! I’m doing my best to get through them all over the next 7 days… Thankyou for giving me space to enjoy my little Evie. You’re kind words and well wishes have been so lovely and I have definitely felt the cyber love! Thankyou. Thankyou!

What do you think about my new little assistant? She is currently in training… I’m hoping to have her trained up by the start of 2014. I’ll let you know how I go! Oh… and thank you to my gorgeous clients (you know who you are) who sent this little gift recently- Evie loves it!

xx
