Family Maternity by AF Photographer


Here is big brother, Leo…well he’s almost a big brother!! He is very excited to meet his new baby. I know this, because when I asked him if he was excited, he said “Yeah”. It doesn’t matter that this was his answer to every question I asked him, during the session, because it’s plain to see that he does already love his brother or sister, and is certainly very excited to meet him or her 🙂


For this session, we did some shots in the studio first, and then went out into the paddocks for the rest of the session. This is not always possible, as it is often quite dark in the studio, before the light has reached it’s best position for shots outside. But we gave it a try, and luckily it worked out well. We started in the studio, about an hour earlier than I usually would for an outdoor session. But thankfully, it was an overcast evening, so it didn’t matter that we were shooting outside a bit earlier than the optimum time. I love to photograph during the “golden hour”. The period of time right before sunset, when the sun is low in the sky, and everything has that beautiful, golden-orange glow about it. I know this can be such a difficult time of evening, when young kids are involved, but if you can bear with it, (and bring snacks!), the results are worth it! However, the benefit of having an overcast sky, is the delicate, even light that it produces. It’s makes for emotive and memorable images, at any time of the day!


Well, I certainly can’t wait for Leo to come back with his brand new baby, for their Newborn session, any day now 🙂 If you would like to book in for a Maternity & Newborn Package of your own, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
