The Family Parkin + bump {Pregnancy Maternity Family Coffs Harbour Sawtell}


I left the Parkin fam last weekend feeling genuinely excited for them & the new little person they are about to meet. They are gorgeous parents & have more than enough love & patience to give two wee people.

Joel is beautiful with Miss Indy & I know from experience that they will soon become even closer when the latest addition arrives. To say that Emma looks amazing for a woman with only two weeks to go with her second child, would be the understatement of the century!!

I can’t say enough about how much I love these images. It was just one of those afternoons where it all came together. I’m already looking forward to taking some “snaps” of baby when he or she decides to join us.


P.S I want to do this for YOU too so please contact me if you’d like to spend the afternoon together 🙂


chris prestidge - love this shoot!

admin - Woohoo!! Thanking you kindly, Chris.

Danielle - I just had a pregnant lady pull out of a shoot saying she wasn’t feeling crash hot about the whole thing……so I sent her the link to this in hope to persuade her!!!

Simply stunning. I can’t even pick a favourite!

Kate - Leah, to say these photos are BEAUTIFUL would be a massive under statment. You have done an amazing job and have captured some wonderfully amazing memories. Good eye. XXX

admin - Thanks a bunch guys! Pretty hard to go wrong with beautiful light & beautiful people, Lx

Dragos Ludusan - Just wonderful! The light was perfect!

Leah - Aaaaargh!! Can not believe that you have even visited my little blog, Dragos!! Major fan of your & your wife’s work. A big “Hi” to you both from Australia 🙂

The Family Parkin & bump. {Pregnancy Family Coffs Harbour Sawtell} Sawtell

I really hope these four frames go even half way toward illustrating the AMAZING time I spent with the Parkin fam.

I pretty much broke the speed limit to get home & download the files from this shoot. It was everything I hope to continue as a photographer. A relaxed session starting in the family home, some chatter about life with kids & then on to a beautiful location. No rush, just a fun, chilled evening with likeminded people. They were so wonderful & were truly happy to trust & do whatever I asked of them.

It is truly ridiculously that anyone could look this freaking good with only two weeks to go before they give birth to their second baby.

Their full blog post will probably be way too long!!




Laura - just STUNNING Leah!!!!!

Firsts: School {Family Documentary Portrait Coffs Harbour Sawtell}

A first for him & a first for us.

Much of my reflection in the lead up to our biggest little man starting school has been about how our family dynamic will change now that we will not all be at home together. I’m sad that this time in my life when all my “babies” were close by has come to an end & selfishly, I’m also sad because it means I am getting older too.

I remember being little & feeling like I would never “grow up” & I’m sure our boys feel the same. I just wish I could slow it all down a little bit!!

So here he goes, off into the world…
