Charming Children’s portraits – Hamilton NZ
What a delight it was to photograph one year old Maddy recently on our Te Pahu Farm. After meeting her lovely mum, at our Little Yellow Cottage, we drove a minute up the road – to what I call…”the rusty barn paddock”. I took with me one of my wee goldilocks chairs, and we didn’t take long to walk across the paddock to said rusty barn.
Once we set up in this rustic corrugated hay shed – Maddy dressed in the most sweet wee smocked dress, was straight into the smiles. Honestly – can my job get any better? This hay shed always provides the perfect lighting, and I adore the colour tones. It’s fairly easy access and a good dry spot for days when the weather is questionable.
Maddy is about to become a big sister! Her Mum wanted to capture this special moment in time, the last days of having an only child.
Once we finished with the Goldilocks chair, Maddy was keen to get moving! As all toddlers are! Putting her solid wee legs to speedy use, she had great fun exploring this new environment.
It’s surprising how fast tiny legs can go!! The sun was playing ball for us, giving gorgeous back lighting, to finish off a perfect mini session. The whole experience was a pleasure from start to finish and a heartwarming occasion for Maddy’s expectant Mum. I’m sure Maddy will LOVE her new baby to bits 🙂 xo
