NEWBORN CHARLOTTE // 2 WEEKS NEW

With lashes for days this little girl stole my heart on first glimpse, I mean how gorgeous is she!! She simply loved having her arms up in the air and practically posed herself for some of these delicious portraits. Little Charlotte has two of the loveliest people I've met for parents and I was so honoured to capture these portraits in her precious first weeks of life...

NEWBORN MADELINE // 2 WEEKS NEW

Meet Madeline... two weeks new and all this autumn baby wanted to do was take in the world. One of the favourite things about my job (apart from all the cuddles) is witnessing the total adoration from new parents. What a little personality too! I couldn't get enough of her expressions and don't get me started on those eyebrows... the level of cute is almost too much!! 

Jessica + David // Hamilton Gardens Engagement Session

These two will be married on Saturday and I cannot wait! A storm was forecast was our engagement session in Hamilton Gardens, but it never did join us and instead we had blue skies and some really beautiful light. I could photograph this couple forever, and would easily have spent longer in the greenhouse despite the fact we had only a few moments until another bride was due to arrive! We got so many gorgeous portraits all the same, and the light rain that did arrive led to some romantic portraits under the large trees for shelter...

Angela + Jonathan // kawau island maternity session

These two lovely parents-to-be could not have chosen a more exciting location for our maternity session together during Easter weekend! Travelling by ferry to visit Mansion House on Kawau Island ("a jewel in the Hauraki gulf") was such a delight and it was such a gorgeous, hot day for our trip! There was so much to take in, from dolphins swimming beside the boat, the gorgeous exotic gardens, the beautiful victorian building with it's enchanting interiors and history, particularly the nursery where we simply had to capture some portraits! I feel so honoured to have been given access to such a stunning location, and the generosity of these two, who's enthusiasm was infectious made us immediately feel like friends! I cannot wait to visit this hidden gem again and I especially cannot wait to meet their little one very soon...
