Have I mentioned before how much I love being able to do what I love for work? Well I do! I recently travelled down to Nowra on the NSW, South Coast for a newborn and family session with the Gates Family. Samantha contacted me to document their newest family member, Ella who is a little sister to Jack and her older twin sisters Maddi and Sophia.
Sam and I instantly had a connection, I don't know if it was because we are both mums to twin girls who are close in age or if it was because she is just such a kind, welcoming and down to earth person, I know that I have made a friend in her and that we will have many playdates together!.
David, is a excellent Dad, Jack, Maddi and Sophia were dotting over having him home and he certainly made the most of it. Watching him cuddle, play and dote over his precious children was beautiful to see. He also has a special connection with his baby girl Ella as the only way Sam and I could get her to nap was with David.
Jack and I instantly hit it off with lots and lots of giggles, Maddi and Sophie took a little bit longer to warm up but after about 10 minutes they were the cheeky, laughing, full of smiles selves and I was having a ball with them. When the session had finished the little ones were eating their lunch, Jack asked me to stay as he didn't want me to go and as any good mum does for another, i helped him with his lunch and made a fun game of eating carrots....Did you know that can make you see in the dark!
This is just a preview of the session, there are so many images of everyone smiling, happy and having fun and I cannot wait to share them with the Gates family.
Please feel free to leave a comment at the end of this post and share with your family and friends.
So....Meet Ella Gates - 9 Days.
