A Photo Story – Casual Maternity Shoot

When you have your mind set on an outdoor location shoot but the weather doesn’t play the game there is only one thing to do, make it work inside.

Luckily the lovely expectant mother was my sister because I’m not sure how many mothers to be would have been impressed with my makeshift ‘studio’ which essentially involved moving our bed to the white wall in my bedroom and borrowing the big kids white duvet. Magic I tell ya! hah!

At least it was casual and relaxed just like Haley and therefore means the end result is photos that truly reflect her pregnancy. She looks content, comfortable and ready to welcome my new nephew which is a beautiful sight at 37 weeks pregnant.

Into The Woods


Trilly is madly in love with her tea set she received for Christmas and if I ever can’t find her she will normally be hiding in a duvet kingdom sharing tea with her ‘friends’. I am in love with this kids imagination. She draws her technology curious older sister into her world of fairy tales all the time and to watch their childhood play unfold is magic in itself.

Trilly wanted a tea party in the woods so this week that’s what we did.
