If you've been around here for a while you'll know that we are neck-deep in the midst of a major reno/extension at the moment... and time is running out! While our building approval expires later this year, we are madly trying to get everything done and ticked off the list - and the final major thing is my kitchen!!
We have been here for over 5 years now, and for all that time I have worked in a tiny, cramped little kitchen, with virtually no bench space, and WITHOUT a DISHWASHER!! Yep - the dishwasher is ME... and well, first world problems and all that, but I am SO over hand-washing dishes!
So the kitchen has been designed and ordered - and there are two big things I'm looking forward to most - hiding all the appliances in the Butlers Pantry so that I have masses of bench space, and, yes you guessed it - finally having a dishwasher!!
How long do you think you could cope without a dishwasher??
Todays blog post is from a recent session with Samara & Mat as they awaited the arrival of their newest family member! Samara was simply glowing during her maternity session - its always so special to be asked to capture this amazing time in your lives!
And although I quite often include the family dog in portraits, this was the first time that I was asked to include a beloved cat in the session - how cool! Our pets are often our first "babies", so its lovely to be able to include them in the photos, as they are also an important part of the family!
Before too long, their handsome little guy arrived! This sweet little boy was just amazing for his session - Samara & Mat loved images which included nests and greenery, and these suited him perfectly. It was also fun to include a little bit of Australiana to the session.
Thank you so much Samara and Mat! Here are a few favourites from the session:
