Hanging out with these guys for the afternoon was not really a whole lot like work. The bushfires in the distance made for such amazing sunset & dusk light that I was completely spoilt for choice when it came to choose blog images. Martha’s gorgeous bump will be a little person in a mere few weeks & that little person is a lucky soul indeed.
These guys have been a team for a long time. Alex & Dean have built a life together & this day was a celebration of all they have achieved & all that is still to come. Married in their hearts & now married in the law.
I am so lucky to be welcomed into the homes of families who really just want to be documented as they are. These guys have just expanded their hearts by one more & we hung out for an afternoon to capture it. Two very loved little boys live here <3
This was all about celebrating life & being grateful for just being. Cara is recovering both physically & mentally from her latest open heart surgery & wanted to capture all the feelings that come with it. We talked about everything from anxiety & fear to pride & faith in ones self. It was an amazing sunrise & I was pretty high all day from the energy & images we created. It was so still but so raw & real. More sunrise sessions & more portraits please – just putting it out there.
Cara was born with a congenital heart defect & her parents were told to take her home & enjoy whatever time they had with her because it would be a miracle if she lived past the age of six. Since her first open heart surgery at just three days old she has gone on to have four more during her young life. Now at 32 she is proving those doctors wrong every day. You will be able to read more of her story soon on her blog but you can find Cara at @wildheart1984 until then. Also I’m just going to leave this here>> http://www.donatelife.gov.au
