Well this one is a blast from the past! On this day, June 27th in 2016, I met Sienna. What a gorgeous little human she was and so lucky was I be chosen as her newborn photographer by her awesome Mum and Dad!
I first met Maddie and Ben on the shores of St Kilda Beach just a couple of weeks earlier when we got together for their maternity photoshoot. We met right outside Luna Park, wandered down the path to the beach, got our feet wet, had a cuddle or two, watched the sun go down with the most spectacular colours. The wind was in our hair, from memory it was a reasonably chilly early evening as the sun set on the horizon, Maddie looked incredible growing their first child in her belly and the love shared between the two of them was just beautiful! I kept thinking to myself just how lucky I was to get the chance to meet such kind people.
Then came the precious news of little Sienna’s arrival, Maddie and Ben were parents to a sweet baby girl! Sienna Adell Hutchesson, born on Wednesday June 15th 2016.
She had the craziest hair, the reddest little lips and such flakey dry brand new newborn baby skin. She was beautiful and I was completely besotted with her little face from the minute she walked in the studio door!
She slept and slept right throughout her session, giving me the best opportunities for gorgeous little curled up baby poses, and then there were the stretches and sneaky smiles. As we neared the end, she woke at the perfect time, to give her Mum and Dad all of her attention while they cuddled her ever so sweetly.
Ben and Maddie, happy Newborn Photoshoot Anniversary to us! I cannot believe we are two years down the track already when it honestly does feel like just yesterday that I met you both. Thank you for choosing me as your photographer, for coming all the way across town to my studio in Montmorency and for sharing sweet Sienna with me.
