Kaila & Chris: Maternity Session In The Yarra Valley

Maternity sessions are some of my absolute favourites. There is something about the excitement, wonder (and excessive hormones…) that makes them feel so special. Capturing these memories for you when you are on the cusp of such monumental life changes is so rewarding. You don’t have to wait for years to look back and feel like it was a lifetime ago- in a few short months life has changed so completely to what it was before that it’s nice to have a reminder of who you were before there was a tiny human relying on you for absolutely everything in life! These tiny non-verbal dictators- ahem, I mean babies, will change what you know the world to be. These sweet moments before as you wait for them to arrive are so precious and so incredibly short.

For this maternity session we chose one of my all-time favourite spots in the Yarra Valley, lucking out with glorious weather and an even more gorgeous couple in Kaila & Chris! Not everybody’s baby journey is smooth sailing, but that makes moments like these all the more cherished. These two were lucky enough to be blessed with an adorable baby boy (spoiler alert!), to see chapter two of their family story, you can click here.
