Family of Four - An update from me.

On Monday, 6th July 2009 I gave birth to my super special little guy Koby, one week before my due date. It was a very short labour of approximately 49 minutes from start to finish. 15 - 20 minutes of this time was spent in the car travelling on the way to the hospital - my waters broke with a contraction in the hallway of the hospital and I birthed him on a small consult bed in a monitoring room just around the corner. I was lucky a midwife was coming on shift at the time my waters broke. She pretty much half carried me, half pushed me into the consult room.
He is just perfect and we are all smitten.

{Flashback} - Skye and Toby 3rd July 2008

12 months ago - I was lent 2 beautiful children to use as models for my portfolio. We drove all over in my car and Skye was happy to jump in and out in the freezing cold to let me get some shots. It was so cold and windy that day - almost identical to the weather we have right now!
Boy how time flies - these are still to this day, some of my favourite images :)

A little Update from me...

Well, here I am a few days shy of 39 weeks, waiting ever so patiently for any sign that labour might be around the corner. I am a little emotional as the lead up to this little person's arrival has been overshadowed by the dreaded cold virus making it's way through us all making us feel a little run down and miserable during this time of excitement and expectation. My Mum and her partner arrived last week, and whilst it's been difficult to hand over control, I am thankful for the sleep, dinners and immaculate house.
I must admit, I am really missing my client sessions at the moment. I am missing the creativity, the interaction with beautiful children and families and the joy I get from presenting beautiful images to people. So...until this little one arrives I am going to simply have to be content with splashing images of myself on to the net as well as going back through the last 12 months and sharing some of my favourite client images.
For was my latest belly photo taken at 37 weeks. The photo actually makes my really large and heavy belly look so small.
