The birth of Ava Loïs

September 6, 2017

When you are blessed to experience a 2nd, 3rd or even 4th pregnancy, siblings add to the joy and while expecting our second little girl back in 2014 we knew we wanted to include big sis, Eliana in a family maternity photoshoot. Being only 2 at the time and naturally camera shy, posing wasn’t really her thing…

Finding myself in Pregnancy. Part 1

March 3, 2017

We have hit the halfway mark of this pregnancy! 20 weeks! Being a 3rd pregnancy, things are very different than the 1st two… You are in it alone and at times this incredible blessing can be forgotten, not just by those close to you but even yourself. At a moment in time where most of your friends are either done having kids or they are in the all consuming hustle of parenting a 1st born, you will feel completely isolated.…

Alice In Wonderland Inspired Maternity Session

February 23, 2016

Expecting couple Rochelle and Vihann met up with Luna Fay photography for this “Alice in Wonderland” maternity session. The brief was simple, natural looking photos in their everyday environment and although no-one planned for a specific theme, this shoot is undeniably wonderfully quircky and Underlandish.
