Marc, Sandra, Max and Silvana in the Belly

Marc and Sandra saw each other as they waited at a cross walk on Front Street almost eight years ago. It was love at first sight and once they met, they simply couldn't be apart from each other. The two have been married for six years and once the couple found out they were expecting Max four years ago, they felt so blessed. They are so thankful to have so much joy in their lives since he was born and feel so luck that every day has been a discovery since he came into their lives. When Marc and Sandra told Max about the pregnancy and that he would soon have a baby sister called Silvana, he ran around the house in excitement screaming out lout that he was going to be a big brother.

Max hugs Sandra's belly every day to say good morning and good night to his baby sister and they spend time together looking at the different shapes her belly turns into as the baby wiggles and stretches.

Max loves the beach and everything to do with the ocean. His latest fascination is the deep ocean creatures such as the Dumbo Octopus, and Viper fish. Once his parents told him they were planning on having these photos, he decided the beach as the location and as a result, he had a great time. The family spends most of their free time by the water front, either pick up shells off the beach, swimming in the summer, or watching groups of turtles and parrot fish go by. The three can't wait to share these special times with Silvana when she finally arrives.

Silvana will be arriving any day now and they simply can't wait to meet her. Aren't these little baby shoes just too delicious to be true?

Max was in awe of how much pink was in the sand - I never cease to be amazed myself and love it when I am on the shoot and someone notices it.

Marc, Sandra and Max - our shoot together was so easy and fun and natural - you are such a loving family and Max is such a treasure - Silvanna is a lucky little girl being born into such a beautiful family - can't wait to meet her! xxx

Annika in the Freesias

This little angel is such a love and one of my fave things her mother told me about her is that she would rather skip than walk - now that is a great outlook on life! Annika is a smart and inquisitive three year old with a great sense of humour for her age and quite the little personality. She is one of the caring children who is always wanting to be sure others are happy. She constantly asks her beautiful mama bear how her day was, kissing "owies" better and helping carry bags. I photographed her in her mummy's belly, then again when she was just days old, and since with her wonderful family, and have loved watching her grow up. Her mummy is a friend and a highlight is when I read the sweet little comments Annika makes that her mummy shares on facebook. She makes her mummy laugh every day with her quirky comments and questions that she comes up with and is one of those kids that everyone seems to take a liking to.

Annika loved frolicking in the freesias and drinking in the sweet fragrance of the flowers while they were in bloom. And such a gorgeous setting - just heaven.

Annika loves to dance and spin and wear dresses and is quite the social butterfly and always wants to see friends and tell them about her latest news or newest book or favourite toy.

I adore these last ones - she is so thoughtful but couldn't decide if colour or black and white was better so decided to share both.

Annika - thanks for being such a fun little twirly girly in the flowers - you are at such a sweet age and I can't wait to see how you blossom in the years to come. xxxx
