I recently shot a maternity session with a very special couple: Harry and Sam.

I used to work with Harry, who is also a keen photographer, and just over a year ago she invited me to second shoot at her wedding knowing that I was aching to get into wedding photography.

That first taste was invaluable (teaching me if nothing else to allow an extra two hours when you're driving out of town on a wet, Friday afternoon!) and was my first step towards where I am now as a professional wedding photographer. It also led to the last wedding I shot just a few weeks ago for Elizabeth and Dougal, who were guests!

So it was wonderful to spend time with Harry and Sam as their first child prepares to make its debut!

We headed to Manly's North Head on the last day of summer and ended at nearby Collins Flat Beach, a super special location as that's where the proposal went down!
