My darling friend of many, many years has just had her first baby. She is gorgeous. So is the baby! But before we get to the photos of the baby, we must first look at the pregnancy photos. (I admit I was just going to put up the photos of the wee cherub and be done with it – she is adorable! – but I managed some self control and did not hit publish. The post is waiting patiently until we have had time to check out the super spunky mama. Here she is…….
Isn’t she gorgeous?!! And a natural when it comes to being in front of the camera. Stay tuned for the pics of her darling child.
Inspired by the beautiful photographs taken by Hans Silvester of the people from the Omo Valley in Ethiopia. It was an idea that was thought about on and off for months. I have been constantly looking around, especially when I’m driving, for striking bits of flora that I thought would be suitable. The shoot had to be rearranged a couple of times so flowers I originally thought of using were no longer available by the time we got around to taking the photos. The day itself was all very “organic”. It flowed so nicely from the picking and collecting of all the flora on my way to Sally’s (everything was picked and created that morning), to the capturing these beautiful images.
Many thanks to mother nature for the ever bountiful array of beautiful flora. Also to the lovely Sally for being a most gracious and cooperative model who could see my vision and totally helped me bring it to reality. Thanks to Bec for the black backdrop….. we were originally going to shoot these all outside more akin to Hans Silvester’s images but I am glad we didn’t. This is far more striking.
Without not knowing, there is no knowing. Answers need questions just as much as questions need answers.

As a photographer I am lucky to live in a naturally gorgeous part of the world with beautiful friends who not only let me photograph them but actively ask for me to. I am a lucky lady and had a blast taking these photos recently down by a local swimming hole. Tanz you are one hot babe! Thanks a bunch x
