Pregnancy is such a beautiful time in a woman’s life. There is such a feeling of anticipation in the faces of the expectant parents. It’s a joy to both watch & capture. Check out the latest sessions here…

Caterina & Ade | Engaged

A few weeks ago I photographed Caterina & Ade’s engagement session at Carriageworks and Centennial Park. What made this session a little extra special, is it served a double purpose as a maternity session as well!

We started out at Carriageworks in Eveleigh Railway Workshops for some urban shots. It’s such an incredible place to explore when there’s no one else around. The rustic heritage rescued from the brink of dereliction. So many incredible lines and little vignettes.

There’s pure bliss in the way they look at each other.

A quick outfit change and we headed off for Centennial Park for a completely different look and feel for the remainder of the session.

I just love shooting at Centennial Park. There’s so much variety throughout the park and you can get so many different looks in the one place.

Even amidst all the big smiles and laughing shots, it’s nice to pare it back to little sweet and tender moments like this!

These two are going to be such wonderful parents, I can’t wait to share their wedding.

**EDIT** If you’ve come across this blog post a little more recently, you can check out their gorgeous lunchtime wedding at Balmoral.

The Shelly Belly 2.0

On Christmas Day in 2009 I launched my business with The Shelly Belly as my first post. My gorgeous sister, 36 weeks pregnant with blog regulars Charlie & Digby.

Now, just over 2 years later, the belly is full again while she’s expecting another one! I can’t wait for the addition of a niece or another nephew and am super excited to be flying up to Alice 2 weeks after her due date to meet and photograph the brand new bub!

So here’s Shelly again, with one on the inside, and the two gorgeous little fellas on the outside :)

It’s so cute watching Charlie play with her belly. Blowing raspberries, reaching up to touch it, & using it as a rather convenient seat :)

Digby has recently taken to referring to himself as Bibby (Shell reckons its Bigby, but I can’t hear the g). Anyway, it’s completely adorable!

The still shot doesn’t really do it justice, but Charlie has a new move, dubbed the Old Man Dance. Really slowly walking, wobbling side to side and flailing his arms about. Very very funny!

I am just bursting with excitement to meet the little one, and watch the boys become big brothers.

The Jilly Bean

I met Jill & Cameron for their maternity session in Alice Springs as they are pregnant with their first little bub in February. What struck me most immediately is how much tinier her belly is than the twin carrier Shelly Belly, & she’s only 2 weeks behind…I think my perception of what is normal has been warped. And let’s face it Jill’s belly is pretty cute.

There’s something so intense about Cam’s eyes here I’m sure he can hear something.

When Jill & Cameron said they wanted to do some shots on their bike I got very excited. I love ideas people :) I had no idea what to expect, but I love how they turned out. The bike doesn’t take over the shots, it’s still about the belly, but it’s a nice accent that is obviously so them!

Jill & Cameron, good luck over the next few weeks, can’t wait to hear news about the little one!
