Today I’m so excited to share with you some of the gorgeous photos from our maternity/family shoot with Kym Renay. You may remember that Kym took our maternity/family photos back in July, and once again she over-delivered… I am going to have to wallpaper the house with all these photos because I just can’t choose which I love most!
I have worked with Kym three times now (including this shoot), twice personally and once for my business, and what I love most is that I literally do no prep. I trust Kym implicitly, and know that she will see and capture moments perfectly without me spending hours on Pinterest trying to find shots that I like. And because she’s not trying to recreate photos that I’ve found, they’re so perfectly natural and candid.
You would think that Kym asked Bebe to do certain poses from looking at these photos, but he is such a proud big brother, he just jumped up onto the bed with Bambino while we were still chatting and Kym luckily captured the shots!
Bambino has a little bit of newborn crazy eyes going on, but that just makes me love these photos more… LOL! Kym captured great shots of Bambino alone, with us, with Bebe and all of us together as a family – we really have such a beautiful range of photos from such a special time.
How cute are baby yawns! Although he’s only a few weeks old, looking back at these photos it’s already clear to see how much Bambino has grown already! #SoSad!
For the shoot I wore my very special UberKate pieces, they have such meaning to me and bring me joy to wear. You may remember in December last year we were burgled, and all my lovely UberKate jewellery was stolen. The beautiful Kate and team heard about the robbery and sent me a placement Everyday Cocktail Larimar Ring and Earring set, which I had bought myself to celebrate my business turning two… cue lots of tears! I have never met Kate, so the generosity was so much more touching. While pregnant I bought myself and my two best friends an Ubercircle each to signify our friendship and to thank them for their support while I was pregnant and trying to conceive. So to wear them in this shoot was essential!
I’m so glad that I got in front of the camera with my boys this time. When I had just had Bebe I felt self conscious of the baby weight and his newborn photos are just he and hubby. It was great having Kym come to our home to shoot the photos as well, it made us all so much more comfortable and relaxed, and Kym never rushes you (I had to feed Bambino in the middle of the shoot to settle him again).
The day was made even more special for us, because Kym shared that she is now expecting baby #3! We’re so excited for her!
If you live in South East Queensland and need an amazing, and affordable, photographer I highly recommend that you contact Kym!
Love, Rachael xo
