Mum to be Grazis, came to me for a maternity session. We agreed that our session would be half studio and half outdoors and the Carindale Reserve is the place to be!!
I have a tiny studio in Carina Heights and sometimes I love to explore my options and play around a bit, so when Grazi asked for studio sessions I was absolutely stocked!! Studio sessions are always great; you can really play around with lighting and get some brilliant shots. Saying this, its great to also get outside and let nature be the backdrop. Having a half and half session allows for a variety of pictures, with different styles and lots too choose from.
The outdoor element took place in Carindale Reserve, a favorite of mine. I love this place, the open space, towering trees and lush green grass. The sun always shines so perfectly through the gaps in the trees, creating some jaw dropping lighting and scenery. It was so fitting for a maternity session.
Mum was expecting a baby girl, and so we kept a very pretty and elegant theme. Got to love a bit of girl power! Grazis was glowing throughout, her gorgeous long curly hair was draped perfectly over her face, and complimented her attire so appropriately. The favorite of mine was the flowing flowery, open dress that allowed her perfect bump to show through. Grazis was great throughout the session, very timid but such a pleasure to work with.
My favorite thing is seeing people and families grow, and having the privilege of photographing these stunningly important moments in their lives. Its such a blessing to do a job that allows me to share in these moments, and create some truly special friendships and connections. I have met some wonderful people, and seen so many families grow. Grazis was no different, this session was the beginning of an incredible journey for her, and I am beyond grateful to have been given the opportunity to share a small part of it.
