We’ve just moved to Eltham, located in the North East of Melbourne. We are loving exploring this beautiful area and testing out the cafes one by one. We love that there are so many trees and birds. Here’s a picture from a recent weekend meander down by the Yarra River in Warrandyte. What a peaceful spot.
Yesterday, Anthony and I had the privilege of photographing Wes, Heidi and their newborn, son Chase (11 days old) along with Archie, his big brother.
Chase was wide-eyed and alert, perfectly tiny and just gorgeous. Our first newborn baby shoot for the year, Wes and Heidi were gracious and incredibly patient as we rearranged cushions, blankets and beanies.
Meeting Chase, who is only just encountering the world and beginning his journey of life, helped me reflect on what a precious gift it is.
“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.”
- Mother Teresa
This photoshoot is a little special, as its actually Archie’s birthday today – he turns one !! We took some shots inside and outside in his cubby house. He is quite a serious little fella but has a great smile :)
Had the great privilege of visiting my friends Eric and Rebecca and having a baby photoshoot with little Benedict. He is such a cute boy with a great smile, full of energy and expression! Hope you guys enjoy the photos – here is a sneak preview.
