You're going to love this. And if you don't, well, I don't want to talk badly to you, but you might be a bit of a monster. Isabel is pregnant, but wanted to do something different. She wasn't worried about lots of photographs of herself and her bump, posed luxuriously and flatteringly (and talking to the parents-t0-be of second babies, I find this is a common theme). Instead, she wanted to focus on her little daughter Rosalind and their relationship together - a relationship which will no doubt change forever when Rosalind's little brother is born. We wanted to celebrate these last
Sometimes, it's the quiet moments that get you the most. The moments between one child and another, in the most unstyled, unfashionable, uncontrived of places. Sometimes it's these moments that speak to the human experience and the force of relationships, between even the littlest members of our families.

You're having a baby. Maybe it's your first, maybe it's your second, or maybe it's your eighth (in which case, you are a superhero), and this is an exciting, scary, and truly unique moment in your life.

Welcome, friend. You've come to the right place. Documentary photography in your very own home might be perfect
I love maternity shoots. I think they're beautiful, in every shape and form in which they come. I think pregnancy is something to celebrate. But... not every maternity photography session needs to be wearing a long drapey dress, in a field, wearing a flower crown. Not every pregnancy shoot needs to be in your underwear. (It can be, but that's entirely up to you! If anyone tries to tell you you have to strip to get good photographs of you while pregnant, leave immediately.) Not every expectant mother needs to trek to beautiful sunset location with a full face of makeup.
Bridget lives out near Scone, NSW, on a property with her family two dogs, two kittens, and three horses. Shooting out in the stormy country was a real pleasure, as was watching Bridget's bond with her animals. I think the picture of her kissing her favourite horse is one of my favourite maternity shots, ever. Country living. I'd like to get me some of that.
