Her name was Lola…

… she was adorable.

No. 4 and a cherry on the cake. Already a heart breaker, I mean, those eyes.

This was our second shoot together. The wonderful R family and I enjoyed what was meant to be a mini-ish Father’s Day shoot. It turned into a wonderful morning of memories captured. One day, this now family of six will return to Australia and with them, they take these images and ones from our previous shoot and some very happy memories of a life in Malaysia.

And then there were five….

Twin daughters and then one more. How lucky could one Daddy be?

Here we all were welcoming tiny E to the fold and as she arrived a little early Mum and I thought… ahh sleepy newborn shots… but no, she was wide awake and alert for our whole session. And absolutely gorgeous with it. After this it was time for a rest so the twins and I snuck off for some girlie time in their room. First off, hide and seek from the photographer. No such luck girls, this one is a great seeker. Then story time. Happy times. At home. In Malaysia. Gorgeousness all round.

At the start of this year, an email came through from this lovely couple enquiring about birth photography. At the time, July seemed a long way away. It was January when we met. We enjoyed coffee together and talked about their hopes of capturing the arrival of their little one.

And then with the blink of an eye, here we found ourselves. Just a few weeks from their due date. Mum-to-be was radiant and relaxed. Dad-to-be was brimming with love and readiness for the arrival of their bundle of happiness. The morning was typically Malaysian – absolutely beautiful. It was hot, humid and full of sunshine. What a way to start the beginning of their next chapter. I, for one, can’t wait. And these two, well, let’s say just say this… the bag is already packed! x

It was a shoot which had been in our minds for a while. As always time and life seemed to get in the way. This morning we made it happen. And I’m so glad we did. Happy memories. Of a lovely family. And a brief glimpse into their life in Malaysia. Thank you for allowing us to share in your moments together. xx
