Fiona and I were friends from many years ago, before we were married with children and living in Singapore. So when she asked me if I would do her maternity photo shoot I was thrilled. It is such a special time in one’s life and it makes me happy when mums want to remember the occasion by getting professional photos taken. I have 3 kids and did not take any maternity or newborn photos. It’s one of my big regrets!
We fixed the date for the maternity photo shoot around 1 month before Fiona’s due date. She had a clear idea of what she wanted – contemporary lifestyle rather than posed portraits – and had organized her props accordingly. Big sis co-operated just long enough for us to get some wonderful snaps. And of course we couldn’t missing taking some portraits of Fiona’s handsome dog, who is the same age as her daughter.
6 days after baby arrived we met again for the newborn photo session. He was the perfect little boy, so easy-going and patient with us all fussing around him! I think you’ll agree that these maternity and newborn photos convey the excitement and happiness of welcoming a new baby into the world. Fiona – thank you for asking me to take your precious photos. I hope that they always bring you immense and unending joy. Blessings to you all x
