Owen & Koshea Maternity

Koshea and Owen want their son's life to be filled with art and music, since these are their great passions. The parents-to-be really went to town on making the shoot have meaning for the two of them and expressing their fun and artistic personalities. I was in heaven. Owen used to play the violine and Koshea the cello. Although she sadly sold her instrument years ago, she was able to borrow one for the shoot. Koshea also used to be a dancer - well I suppose you never stop being a dancer, but she used to dance all the time, whereas now, she has other things on her plate - like mamahood!

Koshea painted her old toe shoes black to keep the image of the shoot and included her old worn tap shoes too - so fun.

And best bit was we booked the session the day before we handed the keys for our old house over so the house was completely empty and we were able to shoot in my favourite room in the house. Part of me wishes I had simply left that room empty the whole time we lived there so that I could have used it for shoots, but then we wouldn't have had a living room or all the amazing memories we made there, but when you see it empty like this, just makes you realise what an incredible room it is and I am so glad these two were able to allow me to close that chapter of my life in the same way I had opened it.

This is obviously a mistake but I have to say, I think it is one of my faves!!

Koshea and Owen - thank you so much for putting so much thought into the shoot - it really all came together and I am so smitten with every image - hope I didn't overwhelm you! Much love to you both with the new baby! So glad you took the time to do this before he came! xx


  1. How AWESOME did these turn out!! LOVE LOVE LOVE them! I was SO exhausted after this shoot! Clearly I underestimated the power of the baby bump! Who goes on pointe when pregnant? I did not account the shift in my center of gravity (tipping lol)... the fact that pregnant hips will not turn out. Trying to do arabesque and attitude was hilarious LOL (Sorry Mrs. Hodgson - Somerset School of Dancing for the lines)! In the end it was all worth it though. The images are beautiful! We are VERY VERY pleased. Baby boy Riley is doing well and at 7 weeks old and already has the performance gene... he is quite the poser already! LOL Thanks again for everything.

  2. Ko and Owen, these are priceless and beautiful pics. Love them! God bless you and little Riley.

    Big love,


I'd love it if you left me a note!
