  • Oh my gosh Chloe, these are all so beautifully amazing!!  I too started the project documenting my pregnancy and it gave me a rush to see you pregnant and then holding your sweet girl in the same spot!  It’s so amazing how fast life can change. I also sighed when I saw your rainbow belly<3 ReplyCancel

    As always… loving the way you see and feel life… You are a gorgeous mom and a very special photographer.  If our path cross again, I would love for you to photograph our family. Kuala Lumpur would have been such a beautiful place for that… In Joy, AnneReplyCancel

    Dear Chloe, these pictures are absolutely amazing! You are gorgeous, the pictures speak so much and I cannot say how great full I am to have bumped into you! Seeing these pictures makes me want to go back 15 years just to capture the emotion a woman feels when expecting. It’s a great privilege that I would never exchange with anything in the world. These pictures expresses so much. I am so happy for you and the family. Kisses from Seychelles. ReplyCancel

      Thank you Nicole, we feel truly gifted and grateful. It was wonderful meeting you all in the Seychelles albeit briefly, hope you’re well and your girls are thriving xReplyCancel

Just seven weeks ago our family grew by one tiny totally adorable person, a little girl by the name of Adaline Sofia. We’ve welcomed her into our lives with more love than we all really know what to do with and we’ve shifted routines, family rituals and bits of furniture to accommodate her every need….

Working creatively, be it professionally or personally, can be such a gift. It can also be like wading through thick mud in your gumboots.
