(One of the benefits of having teens in the household is that you can always force them to help with location scouting. Great spots everywhere, just like this in Staglands.)
On one wintery Saturday morning after weeks and weeks (months) of raining Wellington weather surprised us and gave us some gorgeous sun – and no wind at all! We started at the Aotea lagoon and ended up at the hill with awesome views around Porirua harbour.
Nicely spent morning with this beautiful couple and funny little boys.
And what a perfect timing – the newest member of the family was born only few days after our photo shoot.
Congratulations to all of you!
Angela wanted some portraits of her beautiful family. And her beautiful bump. But there wasn’t much time left before the baby was due and weather didn’t seem to give us it’s best at all. So to make sure that we get at least few gorgeous maternity photos we decided to do two separate sessions. A quick shoot with Angela and then later the whole family. With or without the bump.
Weather was terrible. It was so chilly and windy that it was a challenge even to stand still. (Gotta love windy Welly) I’m so sorry to drag poor Angela over the rocks – just to find out that it got suddenly way too sunny for the photos I was after.
So change of plans – and took her to the boat sheds and a forest nearby. But she was awesome. Thank you so much for this photoshoot, I had fun and you were amazing!
Family photos will follow later.
I was really honored to have a chance to take portraits of local poet, Rebekah Burgess.
We were after some autumn foliage to get certain feel for her photos but it was quite a challenge in this area. So best we came up with was the rose garden in Aotea lagoon. And it worked quite well. Here’s a little sneak peek of the day.
Thanks Rebekah, it was lovely to work with you!
