Maternity sessions are always so much fun. And it is even better to work with a family a second time around, and see how they have grown. It’s so special to be a part of, and this session was no different.
9 months ago, I met this gorgeous family. I met Cameron, Cindy and Cayleb whilst doing a cake smash session for little Cayleb at my studio in Carina Heights and it was just awesome as you can see it HERE. A whole world of fun for the most adorable little blue eyed boy.
Little Cayleb is already 2 years old now, and no different to last time, he was such a pleasure to photograph. Our session was just one week before the baby’s arrival and the day started grey and rainy. Needless to say, I kept watch all day, nervously hoping it would clear. And just like magic, at 2pm the clouds cleared and the skies brought beautiful shades of blue, the sun was shining high in the sky creating all kinds of incredible lighting, not a cloud was in sight. The weather would not have been more perfect for our surroundings and chosen location. Smiles all round for us. We were extremely lucky!
As the session began, so did the fun. Little Cayleb got his exploring hat on, and was far more interested in our magical surroundings than the camera. What a little explorer he is. He found great fun in collecting sticks and looking at airplanes fly by. What fun! What 2-year-old doesn’t love airplane spotting?
As Cayleb continued to explore it gave great opportunity to get some stunning shots of Cindy, Cameron and bump. The sun was shining perfectly through the trees; the grass was soft and green allowing us to have some real fun capturing all kinds of shots.
Cindy was glowing the entire time, and Cameron was so besotted with his wonderful family. Little Cayleb was full of laughter and excitement, playing with mum and dad, mesmerised by his new baby brother or sister (still can’t believe that they didn’t want to know the sex of the baby!) – very soon to arrive! The captures hopefully portray the fun and enjoyment this day brought to us all. It was an absolute pleasure to work with them again. And I cannot wait to meet the brand new little one, just waiting to arrive.
Without further ado, here are the photos!! And soon enough there will be photos of Cayleb’s brother or sister on the blog so stay tuned!!
