On a coolish Spring day I had the pleasure of capturing Madeline and Andreas in Sydney’s Botanic Gardens before they welcomed their first child in to the world – which can you believe ended up happening the very next day after our maternity session!
The couple chose the Botanic Gardens for their maternity photography location as Andreas is from Greece and wanted to be able to share the photographs with family back home and to showcase all that Sydney and Australia has to offer.
One of the best parts of photographing in this location are the many options to work with. Beautiful lush backdrops of greenery, city skylines and the magnificent harbour all provide unique and lovely scenes making the photography session quite varied and interesting. We spent a few hours just casually walking around the gardens, chatting about the new member of the family about to arrive and enjoying all that the location had to offer. As it was a slightly overcast and cool day, we were quite lucky to have a lot of the place to ourselves making for an easier session! Nothing worse than battling through crowds of people to get those beautiful photos.
Andreas and Madeline welcomed little baby Mia to the world the next day, so I feel very lucky to have shared that special time with them before she arrived. They will always look back on these photographs with fond memories now!
