I find pregnancy to be such a special time and as this is my last baby I felt very strongly that I wanted a beautiful record of it to always remind me of this time in my life.
I am always preaching to everyone else about the value of beautiful family photography but I very rarely find myself on the other side of the camera. In fact, I only have a handful of snaps of my first 2 pregnancies, so I decided that this time I would have some professional maternity photos taken.
When it came to choosing a photographer, I knew exactly who I wanted – Melanie Kellerman. Melanie beautifully photographs both expectant mums and newborns in studio, but it is her outdoor maternity shoots that really spoke to me. I love the emotive nature of her imagery and the rustic locations she uses. I knew that she would capture the sort of images I would love.
So I recently travelled down to Wollongong for a maternity shoot with her and Melanie has very kindly given me permission to post one of my favourite images here. I will treasure the images she crafted for me forever.
