DANIELLE DOBSON - LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHER - MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA
It feels so strange to be sharing these sessions, taken before the world shut down last year, at a time that I know none of us hoped or expected to find ourselves in again in 2021.
Working from home, schooling from home, trying to keep it all together, renovating a caravan…(no, just me?!). It feels like a devastating sense of de ja vu and I hope you are all going okay. Strength and good thoughts to you mamas, you’re doing a great job!
Nevertheless, it’s so lovely to look back on these sessions and I feel no less in love with the Dunbar family now than I did back then.
This is the lovely Sher and her gorgeous fam on the rocky shores of the Peninsula, and then again many months later (thanks covid! Thanks Mother Nature!) celebrating the arrival of their newest little babe in amongst the wildflowers.
Sher booked the Hello Baby Collection with me (my fave maternity + newborn shoot combo) and let me tell you friends, they’re a real treat to photograph. You just can’t beat a beautiful, well loved bump and all the hope and anticipation that comes with it. Plus knowing you’ll eventually get to meet the babe that’s all cozied up inside that belly is just so exciting!
Now that the weather is well and truly cooling (make that freezing!!), my outdoor sessions will be limited to just maternity shoots. The wind and the rain often means winter family sessions have to be rescheduled, so I’m just leaving a few places open for mamas and families who want to document the very special journey to new parenthood – because we all know babies can’t be rescheduled!
So if you’re expecting a little love bug to arrive soon, or you’ll be sporting a glorious bump in these cold and cosy winter months, I’d love to be the one to document it all for you.
