~ Maternity Session for the beautiful mother to be Jo at her gorgeous home - 29 September 2015 ~
I was contacted by the beautiful Jo asking if I could drive to Kurrajong Heights - Western Sydney to photograph her and her beautiful belly..
I had previously lived in North Richmond before making the move to the beautiful Salamander Bay - Port Stephens.. I love the area from North Richmond up to Kurrajong as the surroundings are really pretty...
Jo's house was no exception. As I type this I am sooo disappointed in myself that I did not race around to take photos of her home and surrounds.. will be on my to do list next time.
Jo and her husband live in and are doing up a GORGEOUS old church.. when I found out this is where we were photographing Jo I was so excited.
Instead of a couple style shoot or something themed it was requested that we did a more lifestyle photography feel.. something real and simple.
You could tell Jo was an interior designer when you walked into the door.. the place was just beautiful with amazing little nick nacs around.
I am known for my more styled and themed maternity work so it was so so great to do something in a client's home. To have the mother show me where baby is going to sleep... to sit in a chair and tell me about a beautiful vintage album she found and is going to fill for her daughter was just lovely.
Oh did I mention that Jo was expecting a girl... I was allowed to know due to certain photos we took that showed gender specific clothing. It was so hard to keep the gender a secret when a family member popped in while I was shooting.
We then ventured outside to the GORGEOUS surroundings.. from the beautiful wooden fences to the BEAUTIFUL coloured trees..
And nothing ends a maternity session then some cuddles with the pups.. awaiting their new friend to play with.
I wish Jo and her family all the best in their new adventure... and I cannot wait to meet the new beautiful addition.
