Baby Fletcher

Fletch-4

You know those people who are put in your life for a reason? The ones who keep you grounded and can talk you through anything… the ones who get you through that first nursing clinical… the person who will come with you to your kid’s art class on their day off… the friend that your kids call Auntie…

Well now I can officially call that person family.

The world works in mysterious ways & I can’t wait to meet the newest member of the family! #babyfletcher

Here are a few more photos from my session with these two beautiful souls!

We have a walker

Fresh 48: Sullivan

Last month baby Sullivan made an early arrival into this world and I got to take in all of his newborn goodness. At just a few hours old, he was showered with love and adoration by his beautiful parents and I got to snap a few photos of his perfect little features.

Every so often I offer Fresh 48 sessions to my clients because they are just good for my soul. It is amazing to see new parents navigate their emerging roles, meet the tiniest babes & address that forever baby fever.

Sullivan, I cannot wait for our in home lifestyle newborn session. Even though I don’t know how it’s possible… I’m pretty sure you’re getting cuter by the day!

Ps check out their maternity session here!

Father’s Day

fathers day

Happy Father’s Day to the best girl dad out there. Because of you, our girls will grow up to be strong, smart, confident women. They will always have someone to talk to, pull down the chocolate from the top shelf in the pantry, and play dress up & race around the backyard with. But most importantly, they will always know what it means to be loved.

Mama & Me Giveaway

_C9A4655-Edit

In February I decided to celebrate motherhood by giving away a ‘mama & me’ session over on instagram! Beautiful Ali won and we took some gorgeous spring photos of her and her adorable daughter Rowyn. I was told Rowyn could sometimes be a bit shy and might take take some time to warm up… Needless to say, the photos turned out better than I could have imagined and I definitely plan on making this special giveaway an annual occurrence!

Here are a few more,

Maternity: Kyle & Kylie

Lewis Maternity-5

A few weeks ago, I met this gorgeous couple for their maternity shoot and it was such a pleasure having them in front of my lens. Not only are they beautiful people inside and out, but I genuinely enjoyed the fact that it was just the two of them! Don’t get me wrong, I obviously LOVE photographing families and children – especially my own. However, the task certainly comes with a few obstacles. This session was like a breath of fresh air that I didn’t know I needed. I was just able to revel in the space created to celebrate these two before they become parents and welcome a beautiful baby into their family.

I am so humbled to have been asked to capture this special time in their lives!

Floyd is 5

floyd bday

Today is this pup’s fifth birthday

We give him to much flak for slobbering all over our house, farting, scaring himself & running away, and his excessive snoring. But we couldn’t have asked for a better pup for our family. The girls absolutely adore him and well… he tolerates the bear hugs, ear pulls & the occasional finger in the nose.

Happy Birthday to our first babe

Green eyes, stick straight poofy asian hair, fair skin like her Daddy

Loves to dance, clap & sing just like her sister

Looks mostly like her mama

Pulls out anything you put in her hair

Obsessed with remotes

Gives hugs and kisses whenever you pick her up. & then grabs hold of the skin on the back of your arm to hang on

Has two go-to positions in her car seat: nosey neighbour or asleep

Still a soother babe which is weird for us because Brynlee ditched hers at 6 months. Hasn’t really transitioned to a ‘lovey’ but loves to snuggle & squish anything soft and cuddly

Bedtime: 6:30pm. When she’s ready for bed she starts pulling her hair and swanton dives for her crib

Crawls at lightening speed, pulls herself up on everything but refuses to stand or attempt to walk on her own

Master of the stairs. Up & down

Can motor around the park unassisted. However slightly fearless and partly oblivious. Goes down the slide head first on her tummy

Bear crawls on the grass

Has 4 molars

Big into people watchin’

Favourite cupboard is inside the tupperwear cupboard

Loves to unpack bags and pull out  A L L  of the wipes

Totally food motivated. Crazy for cookies

Pretty easy going…… until she’s not. Or you try and wipe the cookie crumbs off her face

Terrible traveller

Our littlest babe
