Teresa and Paulo's Maternity Shoot

Only a few short weeks remain before Teresa and Paulo welcome their first wee babe into the world! Shakespeare had it wrong, I think. It's WAITING (far more than parting) that can be such sweet sorrow. Luckily, Teresa and Paulo are almost never sitting still... and likely never will again ;) We met Teresa and Paulo at their home where the bustle is at it's best - renovations rolling, a baby's room coming together, unpacked closets giving way to baby clothes and gear - all the tell-tale signs of a babe on the way. Always up for a good surprise, Teresa and Paulo don't know if they're having a girl or a boy -  As you can imagine, bets are flying and the family is rumbling with excitement. Old wives tales are being swapped across kitchen tables, superstitions are being shared and her belly, scientifically admired for shape and protrusion. The only one's who don't seem obsessed with the baby's gender are these two parents to be. Here are some favourites from our visit with my beautiful cousin Teresa and her hubby Paulo as they await their little......... girl! There - I said it!

Leslie and Dan's Beach Maternity Photo Shoot

It's a beautiful thing when you can tell by looking that two people are joined at the heart. Although quite young in years Leslie and Dan have known one another for more than a decade and it shows. They move like they know where the other is going, they laugh before the joke is told and their mutual adoration is heart warming. Now, after oodles of schooling, a collection of travel tales under their belts and enough moving to exhaust a migratory bird, Dan and Leslie are opening their lives to a little son who will join their family adventure. Even over one cup of coffee it became clear that any child of theirs will have to be up for anything because this beautiful couple is only going...well... up, up, up! We met Leslie and Dan and their baby-boy-to-be at the Beach on a sunny but shivery Saturday afternoon to celebrate the lead up to one of life's most beautiful adventures.
