A short video of when we told Ava & Anouk that we were expecting another baby. It was in December 2015 in the week of Ava’s 9th birthday.
This session actually began with me photographing this sweet little girl’s 2nd birthday party, then we moved location to take some relaxed portraits near their home.
She was understandably tired and a little unsure of what all the fuss was about, so we had to work for her smiles, but in the end we got plenty! Such a cutie!
On Friday after school, I knew we had a possible weekend of rain ahead, so we went to the park to play in the leaves that had fallen….
I’m no night photographer, but I do enjoy making memories in our own city. Our pics from Vivid last year can be seen here. Vivid Sydney is a festival of light, music & ideas. It runs for a couple of weeks in June each year and even though the nights are chilly because it’s Winter, the kids find it fun to put on coats and scarves and head into the city at night for a little bit of exploring…. and ice-cream.. there has to be ice-cream.
Short video included here too!
With Ava and Anouk we found out they were girls the very moment they were born. They were surprises. Two incredible life moments that I will never forget.
This time we decided to find out a little more about who this baby is, during the pregnancy. We still wanted it to be a special memory though.
At 12 weeks I did a blood test which would tell us the results. At 14 weeks we were all in the car together when my phone rang and a doctor told me that my results had all come back clear of any issues and then she asked if I wanted to know the gender. I said yes and she congratulated me and told me. It was still a completely emotional moment for me. I hung up and started to cry just because I was so happy to know more of who this little person growing inside me is. Instead of turning around and telling Pete & the girls straight away, we agreed it would be fun to go home and set up a fun reveal. We turned the day into a beautiful memory. I made this little video because some memories are the kind you want to last forever….
