Pregnant and Barefoot ~ Maternity Session

I absolutely love maternity sessions. Well, to be honest I love being around pregnant women… photographing them is just a bonus! There’s nothing like being pregnant, even with all the ups and downs, and all the crap they never tell you about… its still incredible. My friend Sabrina who is a yoga instructor, reiki master crystal shop owner at Purusa Soul, is due right now… actually a few days ago. We had planned a maternity session on a day when her daughter was elsewhere so we could venture off into the forest for some etherial pregnancy photos. A couple days before, she called me to say she was having some contractions and thought she might be going into labour super early… so the next morning I checked to see how she was doing, packed Wyn in the car and flew to Beeton to snap some quick picks. Of course by the time I got there, the contractions had subsided, so the kids entertained each other while we snuck around the house and garden finding some beautiful light.

Sometimes you make epic photo plans, but pregnancy, kids and weather are not known for their reliability!! We embraced the challenge, went with the flow, and came out with some stunning photos that I’m so happy with. Sabrina, you are amazing. Looking forward to meeting your little nugget!
