2013 was a year filled with incredible accomplishments and exposure for my photography, of meeting and photographing beautiful clients and yet again being amazed by the acts of love that Mothers show to their precious children.
It started off with a trip to Western Australia to photograph the first Australian Sacred Pregnancy retreat and things just went up from there with articles, images and interviews being published, images being purchased and hung worldwide and my presentation on BIrth Photography at the Australian College of Midwives Conference in Hobart receiving fabulous feedback. I am so so passionate about birth photography and it has been incredible watching on, as my work has reached international shores. God has been faithful to me. He has held me and my work in the palm of His hand, nurturing and encouraging my dream.
Throughout 2013 I photographed lots of pregnant bellies, incredible births and lovely tender breastfeeding moments. The women and their families featured in my images have helped me to show to the world just how powerful the journey to Motherhood is, especially when you open your heart and mind to the wonder of the process. To the families who have entrusted me with their most intimate journey and then allowed me to share your images I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Together we have managed to impact on the face of birth worldwide in a positive and empowering fashion, how fabulous is that
2014 promises to hold many many more incredible moments both as a photographer and as a mother myself as I look forward to an extremely busy year with lots of births booked in and wonderful projects that I have been working on coming together. My Dad always taught me to dream big, and that is exactly what I will continue to do throughout 2014, constantly being surprised at what God has in stall.
Here are some of my favourite moments of 2013. To all of my gorgeous clients… each and every one of you has inspired and impacted on my life, for that, I thank you xx
