Mt Crawford Maternity Shoot – Natasha & Jonathan
There’s something about maternity shoots that just warms my heart. Every bump, every smile, and every tender touch – it’s all about celebrating the miracle of life. And guess what? I had the pleasure of being a part of another fantastic journey right here in Adelaide – the Mt Crawford Maternity Shoot for the radiant Natasha and dashing Jonathan!
I absolutely love working in Adelaide. Every nook and cranny of this great city and surrounding state has a story to tell, so it was pretty exciting to head out to the splendid Mt Crawford Fprest! It’s like Mother Nature herself decided to paint her masterpiece! The forest of Mt Crawford was nothing short of a photographer’s dream – sprawling gum trees, a rugged underbrush, and oh-so-stunning earthy backdrops. Perfect for our soon-to-be parents.
Mt Crawford Maternity Shoot Photos
Every shot taken was a blend of Australia’s raw beauty and the pure love that Natasha and Jonathan share. The way the sunlight pierced through the gum trees, casting gentle shadows, and the gleam in Natasha and Jonathan’s eyes – everything was just spot-on. If someone were to ask me why I love being a photographer in Adelaide, I’d just show them these snaps!
Those of you who have been readiung for a while might remember their wedding? I had the honour of capturing that lovely day a couple of years back. It feels like a full circle, doesn’t it? From their wedding vows to this maternity shoot, witnessing their love story unfold has been nothing short of magical.
Alongside the classic maternity photos, this session was sprinkled with beautiful traditional elements. As a photographer, these moments speak volumes, adding depth and stories to every frame.
One particular moment that stood out was the delicate New Zealand greenstone pendant, a symbolic piece for the wee one on the way. Its rich green colour stood out beautifully against the earthy tones of Mt Crawford, adding a touch of cultural significance to our shoot.
And then there were the clapping sticks and the traditional wooden bowl. Each element told a story of heritage, of traditions passed down generations, and of a future filled with promise and legacy. These unique touches made this Maternity Shoot resonate on a different level.
The entire shoot was a joy to be a part of, and to be invited back into Natasha and Jonathan’s lives, after their wedding and now for such an intimate moment, is truly a blessing. It’s moments like these that make being a photographer a dream come true.
