Nikki & Dave are expecting a baby! And soon! Nikki was already 37 weeks when she got in touch with me so we worked together to find the perfect date to squeeze in a session for her and Dave before their little person made an appearance. Between Dave’s work schedule, their moving house, my 3 little people and a full schedule, by some miracle we actually found one date to work with and just days after our initial conversation, I met up with them in the park in Essendon North, just a few streets down from their home.
For two people so busy at this time in their lives, they were so relaxed and laid back, a breathe of fresh air after driving in peak hour traffic to meet them. The sun, which I always look for when outside, was a no show, but it was a clam, quiet and unseasonably warm Tuesday afternoon and Nikki was looking incredible for someone just about due to pop with her first child. These two, Mum and Dad to be, were a gorgeous couple who I thoroughly enjoyed photographing.
I get so much excitement out of a maternity photoshoot, the antiscipation, the unknown, the excitement of who their little person will be. Plus this session had a little bit more excitement for me as I was experimenting with a new lens and totally loving it…I am sure Dave thought I was completely nuts the whole time as my giddy joy came out every time something pretty showed up on the back of my camera…I promise Dave, I am definitely completely nuts, but entirely normal all at the same time 😉
Nikki and Dave, thank you for choosing me for your Maternity Photoshoot, it was an absolute delight working with you and your growing baby bump. I cannot wait to see you again very soon in the studio when your new baby arrives.
