This is the story of an amazing mum who took her future and love of family into her own hands and created a love that is well worth the effort it took to realise.
At age 36, Mel decided that she was not willing to wait for a worthy partner but would take matters into her own hands and have a baby on on her own. The process was not an easy one and took a few years of trying, month after month, until finally success!
Mel's life changed and then one became two. Mel had beautiful little Caitlin and her life was forever enriched. I love the bond that is on display here between Mel and baby Caitlin, it was one of my more heartfelt sessions and I will forever remember this story as the brave mum who took on the task of having a baby on her own terms! <3 M

Babies love their mothers milk, sleeping, cuddles and warm heartbeats. This beautiful little boy was a joy to photograph and the love his parents had is so deep and wonderful which is now captured in photos. It was such a great session too as everyone was so natural and accommodating. Thank you guys.

It is indisputable that one of the most heart warming moments is where your first child meets your second child and there is an immediate connection and display of love. I was so lucky to have the opportunity to capture some amazing photos of these gorgeous kids... enjoy the love shared here <3

I always encourage my clients to bring along any items or clothing that they are passionate about. This really enhances the session as the emotion and memories that are tied to that passion is the most important reason we want photos.

It's always so amazing to have a family session with the kids, parents and grandparents all there together. It really showcases the love the family has for each other and these memories will be so important for each generation to reflect on throughout the years.
