So another birthday went by last week... and yup I'm starting to get to the stage where we don't count them anymore! Well my lovely husband thought he'd surprise us to a bit of a day out to celebrate - and took us ice skating!
I'd been a bit hesitant to go ice skating, and mainly because I used to figure skate when I was a kid. I trained for about 5 years, spent half my childhood in the rink and was absolutely devastated to have to give it up when I was 14.
So it was like stepping back in time on Sunday, and I stood there on the ice thinking "When I was last here, I never ever imagined that I would be back one day, teaching my two kids how to glide and swizzle..."
We all absolutely loved it - we spent the entire 3 hours laughing and giggling at the kids (and ourselves), Master 6 deciding that faster was better (despite looking like an octopus with arms and legs flailing everywhere!) and Miss 8's grin never left her face the entire time - best day ever, apparently (apart from those awful rental-skates!)
And I didn't fall over once - yay me!
Have you ever been ice skating?
Oh I am so loving photographing all these stunning mamas-to-be, lately! There is so much beautiful excitement, nervous energy (I totally get it!) and love between couples during this amazing time in your lives, its really such a special honour to be able to capture a small piece of it.
Breanna & Jared's session was held at my Tamborine property - and although the sun was playing hide and seek a little on this day, we still captured some lovely moments to treasure...
And then it was time to meet this little cutie! Madden came to the studio for his newborn portrait shoot and snoozed away for most of the session - what a superstar! Thanks so much Breanna and Jared for asking me to capture these precious memories!
Here's a few of the favourites:
