Since photographing Natalie and Dan’s wedding many moons ago, it has been such a joy to follow along their journey and play a small part in documenting the various stages of their lives. From growth upon growth of their much lusted over brand Natalie Marie Jewellery, to this – preparing for their most beautiful creation to date.  It was wonderful to catch up with these two in their cosy Northern Beaches abode and photograph this on my various film setups.  We had the most perfect sunset, made only more dramatic mid-shoot by Dan running to the rescue of a poor dog who had eaten a fish left ashore by a careless fisherman – hook, line and all.

It is honestly one of the best parts about being in business this long…seeing so many couples who celebrated their love so many years ago continue to work out what it means to truly love each other through the ebb and flow of the years, to grow together and to grow as a family – one of the greatest gifts of all.  Hope you love this little session….their little Baby Willa to feature soon!
