Today I’m so excited to share with you some of the gorgeous photos from our maternity/family shoot with Kym Renay. Kym took newborn photos for Dianne (Mum Buns & Heels) and I’ve known ever since then that I wanted her to do our family photos and Bub’s newborn photos. Kym’s style is relaxed, candid and she has an amazing eye for photography, I’ve loved every single photo of hers that I’ve seen.
We took advantage of our gorgeous babymoon location to have a family/maternity shoot and we’re just so in love with the photos that Kym took. They’ve captured our little family perfectly, and especially Bebe’s personality!
The first time I met Kym was on the day of the shoot (we had emailed and spoken on the phone to organise) but her gorgeous personality put us all at ease straight away, and she is AMAZING with kids! Perfectly wrangling shots out of Bebe and even taking photos of a scrub turkey he saw for him, which he loved!
On the day we took a stroll down the walkways behind the beach and on the beach, chatting and laughing with Kym – it barely even felt like we were on a shoot! Hubby isn’t very comfortable in front of the camera but even he forgot that Kym was taking photos most of the time.
Because I trusted Kym’s style, I told her that I was happy for her to just click away and guide us an necessary. There wasn’t any poses that I wanted us to do, I wanted a very natural and organic shoot that captured us as a family, and boy did she deliver!
Even though it is Winter, it’s Queensland winter, so we didn’t have to worry about staying warm with what we wore. I chose a simple palette of denim and grey to compliment the beach location and am really happy with the choice!
It was really important for me to capture this special moment in our life as a family. We didn’t do anything like this when I was pregnant with Bebe, the photos that I have are few and far between and only snapped on our phones. It was especially important to me as this is our Rainbow Baby, and definitely my last pregnancy. I’m so grateful for Kym for capturing such beautiful memories for us to treasure.
I’m so excited for Bub to arrive so Kym can capture that newborn gorgeousness for us, and most of all I’m looking forward to those heart melting moments of Bebe & Bub together.
If you live in South East Queensland and need an amazing, and affordable, photographer I highly recommend that you contact Kym!
Love, Rachael xo
