I’ve known Holly & Ben since they were married nearly five years ago in The hunter Valley. Since then we have kept in contact & have been one of my favourite families to photograph. Since their wedding they have had two gorgeous boys, Alfie & Huxley.
Huxley was born in February so when Huxley was 5 weeks we organised a newborn shoot.
So many photographers say newborn shoots have to happen in their first 3 weeks. I tend to disagree with this with the style of my newborn photography shoots. Bub is always fully clothed, wrapped & warm. So if bub isn’t sleepy they are usually content & not crying. If bub is a few weeks older they usually have a little more head strength too. So my newborn shoots are always less stressful & mum & dad are also less stressed. Yes most of the time my newborn shoots are outside with natural light & I just simply love it! As you will see by this shoot.
I just love catching up with my families to capture their memories & big milestones in their life.
Ben & Holly live out towards Duri on their family farm which is the perfect backdrop for a shoot. Sentimental & amazing shoots. Despite being in one of the worse droughts, bare paddocks looked amazing in the photos.
That day we had a cracker of a sunset which you will see below. The kids had enough by that stage but I stuck around to just watch the amazing sunset.
Can’t wait to photograph the boys together when their running around together.
Loved catching up with you both xx
