Newborn photography is an honour.
And I was so incredibly honoured that during their week in Townsville, Nate and Ebony would make space for a session with me.
Honoured that they had chosen me to document this time. A time which is an unbelievably special stage of their lives with their six-week-old baby girl, Aaliyah.
Prior to this afternoon spent together, I knew Ebony much more than I had known her husband Nate.
However, within minutes of being with the three of them, I had learnt more about Nate than I previously had when photographing weddings that he had been a big part of.
The love he has for both his wife and his daughter was so clear. As was his gentleness and his quiet joy.
Apart from meeting this gorgeous baby and seeing Ebony again, getting to know Nate was the highlight to me.
I was honoured to witness this new and powerful family dynamic during this beautiful newborn photography session.
