You may well recognise the delightful Alison Bartlett from your own weddingShe has now married hundreds of people around the Coffs Coast & further afield, in her capacity as a celebrant. And as a celebrant she also knows that a marriage (not a wedding) is something not to be taken for granted & that it deserves to be celebrated, especially when reaching milestones like ten years. Dan & Fred have been together since high school & it was important to them that some sentimental touches be included in their vow renewal. They used their old wedding music, Fred donned her original wedding dress for a few snaps at the end of our time & the couple’s two beautiful children were also there to watch their mum & dad get married all over AGAIN. It was overcast for all but five minutes & although there was no sun there was lots of love & laughs. A fabulous way to spend the afternoon, L oxo
If anybody knows the value of getting yourself into the frame it is a fellow photographer. The gorgeous & clever Laura from Captured With Love had not been officially documented with her clan since her now nearly three year old was a newborn & it was my (nervous) pleasure to be the one to do it. So often when people book they tell me how much they hate having their photo taken but by the end of the session they are always glad they have done it. Just think how much we value those images of our own parents & grandparents, well we need to do that for our children too! Leah oxo
All babies are special whether it is your first or your third & in some families it can be both Jess knows what a miracle is about to occur but Dean will be experiencing it all with fresh eyes & a fresh heart. This little person is going to be surrounded by people who love him or her. And the girls did tell me they ordered a boy because they already have a sister each– logical really. 😉
My favourite sessions are the ones where people let me in to their houses & to their lives, even if it is only for a couple of hours 😉 Little Charlotte was so close to taking her first steps on the afternoon I spent with her & her family. You can see the determination on her face & there was no way she was going to be carried around. She is going to do BIG things.
