SOON TO BE THREE - MATERNITY SHOOT WITH IVY AND BIRCH CO
Flash back to when I was 34 weeks pregnant shooting with my love and the amazing Stephanie from Ivy and Birch Co.
Stephanie reached out to me via Instagram wanting to see if I was interested in doing a couples maternity shoot and of course I just had to say yes! Being able to capture this time in not only mine but also Paris's life is so special to me. She suggested doing a shoot in the comfort of our own home and then also heading to a location for golden hour and sunset. We took a couple of shots at home then went down to Fingal to shoot on the headland.
Steph had asked us if there was any beaches or anywhere special we like to go and we instantly thought of Fingal. Paris and I would go there quite often as it such a nice secluded beach and the headland has such an incredible view. When we first bought our drone at Christmas time, it is was one of the first places we took it to fly and get some cool photos. I remember being so sick the day we flew the drone there, I was pregnant but nobody knew yet... We actually also took our pregnancy announcement photo there down by the rocks on the beach at the start of the year.
By the time we had driven to Fingal it was about 4pm and the lighting was absolutely beautiful. We trekked it through the track and up the stairs to the headland, oh I was so puffed! But it was so worth it!
We had the most beautiful lighting and the colour of the ocean was incredibly blue, perfect for our baby boy! The sun then began to set and the sky turned the most amazing orange colours. Stephanie captured everything so perfectly, it was seriously a perfect afternoon. There are so many images that I love from this shoot, it has been hard just trying to pick a few to share.
Thankyou so much Stephanie for capturing these images for us. I love them with all my heart. It was so nice to be able to spend a Sunday afternoon in a beautiful location capturing a time in our lives we will never forget.
