Walcha Maternity Photographer | Stef

I met Stef and Hugh for their Maternity Session last week just outside of Walcha on a chilly winter afternoon.  We had a few brief moments of sunshine break through the clouds but in true New England style that didn’t warm things up at all!!

Their gorgeous little girl Lily is excited about becoming a big sister soon, and totally rocked her pussy cat ears and unicorn necklace during their session!

I can’t wait to hear whether Stef has a boy or a girl, what do you think it will be??Maternity Photos, Big Sister & Baby Bump, Outdoor relaxed maternity photos, rural nsw, life on a propertyMaternity Photos, Big Sister & Baby Bump, Outdoor relaxed maternity photos, rural nsw, life on a propertyMaternity Photos, Big Sister & Baby Bump, Outdoor relaxed maternity photos, rural nsw, life on a propertyMaternity Photos, Big Sister & Baby Bump, Outdoor relaxed maternity photos, rural nsw, life on a propertyMaternity Photos, Big Sister & Baby Bump, Outdoor relaxed maternity photos, rural nsw, life on a property Maternity Photos, Big Sister & Baby Bump, Outdoor relaxed maternity photos, rural nsw, life on a propertyMaternity Photos, Big Sister & Baby Bump, Outdoor relaxed maternity photos, rural nsw, life on a property Maternity Photos, Big Sister & Baby Bump, Outdoor relaxed maternity photos, rural nsw, life on a property Maternity Photos, Big Sister & Baby Bump, Outdoor relaxed maternity photos, rural nsw, life on a property Maternity Photos, Big Sister & Baby Bump, Outdoor relaxed maternity photos, rural nsw, life on a property Maternity Photos, Big Sister & Baby Bump, Outdoor relaxed maternity photos, rural nsw, life on a property Maternity Photos, Big Sister & Baby Bump, Outdoor relaxed maternity photos, rural nsw, life on a property Maternity Photos, Big Sister & Baby Bump, Outdoor relaxed maternity photos, rural nsw, life on a property Maternity Photos, Big Sister & Baby Bump, Outdoor relaxed maternity photos, rural nsw, life on a property Maternity Photos, Big Sister & Baby Bump, Outdoor relaxed maternity photos, rural nsw, life on a property Maternity Photos, Big Sister & Baby Bump, Outdoor relaxed maternity photos, rural nsw, life on a property

Maternity Photographer Armidale | Jypsi & Joel

With all this crazy wet weather we’ve been having lately, we had to delay Jypsi and Joel’s  Maternity session for a few days, and even then it was basically raining right up until we started!  I’m so grateful they didn’t mind walking through wet grass and getting muddy feet!

The Pine Forest is a favourite place of theirs so it seemed fitting to celebrate the impending arrival of their precious ‘rainbow’ baby by doing their photo session out there.  Because the sky was still thick with clouds it was grey, dark and moody.  Quite a contrast to the bright colours of the ‘rainbow’ they are waiting to meet in a few weeks time.

Jypsi, you’re glowing(and Joel, you’re adorable too!), I can’t wait to snuggle your little one.

“But Leanda” I hear you say, “I’m 30+ weeks pregnant, I feel as big as a barn door, and I’m still working full-time.  And even if I could reach over this big belly to my legs, we’re in the middle of renovating so I have no bathroom to shave them in. The last thing on my mind at the moment is organising maternity or newborn photos.  And besides, I hate having my photo taken.”Maternity Photos, Country life, Australia, baby belly, relaxed style, couples, long grass, paddock, rural NSW

Chelsea & Matt | Armidale Maternity Photographer

So I met Chelsea and Matt a few years ago when they booked me for an extended family shoot.  At the time we joked that, if they ever needed a newborn photographer, they should give me a call.  Well… they gave me a call, and I couldn’t have been more excited for them!!!  I can’t wait to meet their little bundle, I have a feeling its gonna be one cute baby!

Rachael & Jeremy : Uralla Maternity Photographer

A few months ago Rachael contacted me about the possibility of doing a maternity session.  After a few emails back and forth we worked out a date when her hubby Jeremy would be home from work and we squeezed their session in just before their pre-natal class one Monday afternoon.  She suggested a beautiful location where they’d had their Wedding photos taken 12 months ago.

We both arrived early, eager to get started.  And as we wandered around following the light, we chit-chatted about this and that.  Then along came a guy on a quad bike who asked us what we were doing.  For those who know this area well, it will be pretty obvious where the photos were taken.  But apparently, according to ‘quad bike guy’, we were on private property and he asked us(nicely) to leave.

Well, that was kinda awkward.  But we all had a bit of a chuckle because we were already done and had some gorgeous photos to show for it!  =D

**For the record(& before anyone gets their knickers in a knot)** No we didn’t climb any fences, open any gates, or pass the ‘no trespassing’ sign.  We were just walking along the side of what we thought was a public road.

Kacie : Gostwyck Maternity Photographer

For months we’d been planning this shoot.  We’d picked the location & decided on the best time for sunset shots.  Kacie bought a new dress and ordered a beautiful flower crown from Rosemerin.  She’d had her hair and makeup done by the team at Revolution by LUXE & Chique Hair Face Body.  Then, just as we arrived, the storm of the century started brewing.  We thought for sure it would just blow over like they all have been lately.  But, no it got darker and darker, and muggier and muggier.  Then came the wind.  Big gusts of wind.  It kept blowing Kacie’s hair all over the place and blew her gorgeous flower crown off several times.  As the lightning started to strike(I’m not kidding!) and it started to rain big, fat spots of summer rain, we ran back to the cars.  Kacie was such a trooper even though we didn’t get the sunset shots we were hoping for.  In fact, the photos are a lot ‘moodier’ than what I normally shoot, but at 36 weeks I think she rocked this session and I’m totally in love with the results!
