DANIELLE DOBSON - LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHER - MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA
I have been dying to share more of this stunning session with you. It’s up there with one of my favourites to date, and it celebrates everything I love about these extraordinary women we call mothers.
This is Lauren of Love Her Wild Photography. I have admired her for as long as I can remember (guys – serious mama/photographer crush!) and I was equal parts over-the-moon excited and, let’s be honest, heckin’ terrified at the thought of capturing her and her little sidekick Lucy.
Lauren’s relationship with her daughter is utterly mesmerising. They nurture and nourish and teach and inspire each other like nothing I’ve ever seen, and it was a true pleasure to witness their magic. Like one soul in two bodies, guiding each other through the world.
It’s this magic that drew me to photography in the first place, and it’s the reason I created my Motherhood Collection earlier this year – to celebrate the heart-bursting bond between a mama and her babies. There’s just nothing in the world quite like it.
It was one of those sessions that fills your cup to overflowing, and looking back on it now still gives me all those this-is-why-I-do-what-I-do feels. Didn’t hurt that Lauren and I rocked up to the shoot wearing the *exact* same thing, ha!
If you’re not familiar with my Motherhood sessions, they’re run on week days during school holidays only and spots fill up in a snap, so if you’re interested in booking a session during the January holidays please get in touch here to reserve a spot!
