This Intimate in-home maternity session in Avalon on Sydney's Northern Beaches was filled with love, laughter and lots of doggy cuddles. This couple live in a beautiful light filled home, with their Boston terrier (plus a couple of chickens) and they were expecting their first baby boy in a couple of weeks. When Nic called me a few months before to book their maternity and newborn session, she told me that she really loved the idea of Intimate in-home maternity session because they wanted the photos to document their life before and then again after their baby arrives. This is something I absolutely love doing! These kind of sessions are very relaxed, unscripted and involve spending time with a family while they do activities and things around their home that are very true to how they usually spend their days. Plus another bonus point is that the family pet gets to be in on the action.
We started their session in the kitchen, they made coffee together, chatted and laughed. I photographed them from a distance, allowing them to be themselves and go about their routine. They showed me their nursery and they read a children's book together that Nic had found recently in a book sale. She was very excited about it because it was the same book she used to read as a child in Canada. We then moved to their main bedroom, where their dog joined us. Documenting these special moments was an honour, I love getting to know my clients and creating their special memories for them.
