- Personal ~ Year 1 next week February 2, 2013
Well my oldest, Ruby, starts Year 1 next week. Not only is this a big milestone but it is also at a new school. Thankfully for me, she is excited and cannot wait. Maybe the whole buying a dog as a bribe to get her keen on the idea actually worked.
So to celebrate and capture this small moment in time, I dragged them out one evening in sweet, new dresses and photographed them until there was no light left. It also helped that nearby was a group of Kangaroos wondering if we were going to give chase or not. Entertainment for the girls!
So with the sun kissing the earth we were able to capture the love and playfulness of sisters.
- Manaia-Lee – 13 days January 15, 2013
You can tell Manaia-Lee is verging on the dangerous side of 14 days already. She is wide eyed and was too curious to sleep at first knowing that this person settling her was NOT her Mum.
Kyla and Shannon have a gorgeous looking family and now have 2 under 2. Big Brother Maurece has only just turned one on 1st January when they welcomed Manaia-Lee into the world on 2nd January this year. Hence to say they are busy.
Maurece was a great trooper and was happy in the toy box while the session was taking place. He joined us for the final hour still happy as could be.
Congrats guys on your gorgeous little family.
- Reynolds Party of 5 January 12, 2013
This party included Emma and Kirk and their adorable kids Cooper (5), Rosie (3) and Jack (5 months). We had a full on hour but we captured some great photos with the kids each having a turn to strike a pose – some of them very Yoga inspired.
After explaining to Emma that if all else fails with a family shot I copy and paste heads to get the shot they want I stumble across one where the whole family look awesome and eyes are straight forward.
Hope the Reynolds family are as happy as I am with the results.
- Harrison’s Mummies feedback January 9, 2013
Love receiving feedback from my past clients and love the mention of baby no. 2 too!!!
“Our experience with Maternal Moments Photography was nothing short of fantastic. Rae was so gentle, warm and attentive with our little boy and this is reflected throughout the many great photos. We now have a beautiful set of photograph displayed throughout our house. We will recommend Maternal Moments Photography to all our friends and we look forward to going back with baby number two.

- Hello 2013! January 6, 2013
Even though 2013 will be my 4th year in business I feel this will be my new beginning. The reasons are varied but the main reason will be my new studio, a new beginning for me and my two daughters and I feel a fresh start for me as a business woman.
Hence the reason to blog!
I have chosen my first session for 2013 which, most fitting, was a newborn session of a 6 week old Ellarah. Some say 6 weeks is not classed as a newborn but I prefer to give Mum and Dads the option to invest a little more time into the session to gain the results of a newborn session. The peaceful shots of a sleeping, rested baby. Yes this is a tough ask and I warn parents not all babies comply but after a tough start little Ellarah obliged.
Thank you to Samantha and Rick for your patience and providing a beautiful example.
