What a beautiful afternoon to photograph on and what an amazing little family to have as my subjects. Newcastle wedding photography is what I'm now know for, but before we hit the wedding day, I love to shoot couples engagement sessions.
From a couple to 3? Yeah, this is a little rare for me, as I really love using the time with couples on their engagement shoot to help with the nerves that creep up on the wedding day. But every now and then you meet the sweet couple who have a bundle of joy with them to share in life's ever changing journey.
All in all, I've ensured my couples that this will happen ( the getting nervous part), and it's for a great reason - I'd be more nervous myself if couples didn't feel a tiny bit sick at all.
Meeting these three at the baths last week after a few attempts was a success story. Rain that's been hitting the east coast lately was a mission to dodge, and it cancelled other shoots during the week for me, but like always, we got there and the results were beautiful.
Time-freezing (especially when kids these days grow up so quickly) age and life of families has become a lot more important to me, as my own family and close friends are all having kids now days. And at the end of the day it's just being with loved one's on these shoot's that make us more in love...as we have memorable images to look back on in the future.
Chasing a fast falling winterish light saw us start at the iconic Newcastle beach and ending on a dropping sand dune over at Nobby's Lighthouse. And yes...there was a babysitter BTS for this shoot - so thanks to Erin's mum for tagging along and looking after the wee-one.
With the wedding happening this Saturday, a two week gap was a great lead up into getting Erin and Levi in front of the camera. I also thought this might be a beautiful way to showcase this local family before the wedding, as I'm sure there will be some amazing shots coming out of Saturday to them to cherish alongside their engagement shots.
Hope you love these gorgeous Newcastle location shots as much as I do :)
