What is motherhood?


To me, motherhood is so many things, but first and foremost it is about being selfless and putting other little human beings before your needs, which on its own is an incredible act of love and self sacrifice.


You see, as young girls, well, for me anyway, the dream of motherhood was naturally apart of growing up. I'm certain most kids played mums and dads right? Sure you did!

I would dream of one day being a mum; I had baby names picked, the order in which I would have them, how many boys and how many girls and I was absolutely positively having them as young as possible so that we could be best friends. HA HA


Well! fast forward and I am in fact that mama that I one day hoped to be, My ideas certainly have changed, like for example, 2 children is a perfectly good number for me; A far cry from the original 8 that 10 year old me said I would have. *shudders* Imagine if we actually had to follow through with the plans we made as kids.. HA HA!


Motherhood is perhaps the hardest hood we ever will travel and as I was saying about selflessness, from the moment we find out that we are expecting, sometimes even before that, we are thinking about this baby and what is best for them. We alter our eating and drinking habits to ensure that their womb home is the safest possible place for them until they are ready to face this world from the outside; and when they do finally get placed in our arms, as Metallica once said "nothing else matters".

This little squishy human will go on to take our sleep away from us, turn our hair grey, present us with with designer under eye bags and bring out protective traits that we never knew we had.


Motherhood is being totally overwhelmed by joy, confusion, responsibility and a love that is second to none. It is new baby smell, projectile.. you know, tantrums, and so so much more. No rainbow could ever be as colourful as this thing we call motherhood.


When capturing these photos of Sazel and her son Rei, I wanted the softness, heart and soul that a mother and baby share to speak first before we see the image.

Initially I had planned to showcase these in only black and white to really capture the essence of motherhood with no distractions but colour was just too beautiful to leave out completely.

We travelled out to a stunning private property in Tamborine with views so beautiful and vast that when it was time to go home I had to stop for a moment without a camera in hand and just take it in.

Photographing was Sazel was a true pleasure, Her beauty is not only physical, its deep within her soul and it radiates from her smile. They say the eyes are the windows of the soul and this couldn't be truer with Sazel. Baby Rei did want babies do, he fed, snuggled and pee'd and poo'd all over his mama. If that isn't a true representation of motherhood, I don't know what is it.

without further ado, please enjoy these images captured for Sazel and her family to enjoy for a lifetime.

Harmony and Yanni are expecting their first child very soon, a baby girl! and I cannot wait to meet their precious daughter.

Meeting Harmony and Yanni for the first time was incredibly memorable. As they arrived for their Maternity photoshoot amongst the beautiful pine trees on the Sunshine Coast, Harmony practically bounced out of the car filled with excitement, explaining that she had never had a photoshoot before and was so excited. Her energy was infectious and uplifting and you can literally see it in her gallery.

Yanni chose to wear the Hariet Lace by Coven & Co. maternity gown which is just so beautiful but as I was packing it into my gown bag, my attention was brought to my Zinner Gold Glitter Maternity gown and I thought to myself "I'm going to pack this as well, just incase". What a good idea that was! Harmony fell in love with it and couldn't wait to wear it.


As we moved through the photo session I was given more an more insight into the life of Harmony and Yanni, WOW! their love is deep; The affection they show for one another was natural and unprompted and just amazing to watch. These two couldn't be more perfect for each other if they tried.

As for the Maternity Photoshoot, These two nailed it! if I didn't know better, I'd say they are professionals.

As we were leaving they made mention that they would love to book in for a family/newborn session once baby is born and I couldn't be happier! this means, I get to meet the precious little girl that they will spend their lives loving and caring for.


Sending out a photo gallery can be a little nerve wracking. It's always the same question "will they like them?"


Its like hanging on a wire waiting to hear what they think; and then.. BA-DING! you have 1 new notification!


Harmony Findlay-

"oh my god - These are soooo beautiful thankyou so so much !!"
