Inner West Bump to Baby Session
I first met Zoë on a glorious Summer’s day at her home in Melbourne’s inner west for her maternity session. A gorgeous silver birch gently swaying in the warm breeze in her front yard, was screaming at me to photograph it. Meeting Zoë I came to know that she is an exquisite costume designer and mummy blogger, but her and hubby Joe, are a powerhouse renovation team, who’ll give The Block a run for their money! With their home’s schmick design it was evident that this couple didn’t do things by halves – my kind of people!
Once inside I became acquainted with Hugo, their boisterous 2 year old border collie pup and 2 kitty cats taking refuge under the kitchen table. Heading upstairs I stopped in my tracks. The nursery, OH MY GOSH – hearts in eyes!!! A complete drool worthy space for their lil’ bubba June to call her own.
When baby June arrived, I visited Zoë and Joe a second time. June was a 5 week old smiley, most adorable little bundle. Hugo got to meet his new little sis, face to face for the first time too. Mmmmm smoochy dog kisses! Hugo was absolutely stoked to be able to get up close and really get to smell very millimetre of her face. June had her 2 grandmothers visiting that day. How wonderful to have both her grandmothers (3 generations) at her session. Their connection was almost tangible, an instant calm.
Wrapping things up I noticed something missing. Hugo! Where are my socks! Hahahaha (yes I do take off my shoes – sometimes my socks too at a shoot, as it’s not unusual to find me standing on all sorts furniture to get shot) ;)
Check out Zoë’s instagram. I guarantee you’ll be in for a laugh! And her blog too!
My stomping ground is the inner west (Footscray, West Footscray, Yarraville, Kingsville, Seddon, Maidstone, Newport, Williamstown, Taylors Hill). Being a mobile Melbourne newborn, family and events photographer I service the Melbourne metropolitan area, however I’d love to travel where ever you are (for a small travel fee). Let’s chat!
Vicky! These are so gorgeous, you found the words! And from the beautiful bambino to the divine dog and adoring parents and grandmas, I love everything about this session – and the location their house looks gorgeous! So good! J x
Hahahahaha yeah the words came – eventually! Thanks for your words of encouragement. (mwah)
