A year ago I was photographing Brandi as she awaited the arrival of Sofia. One year on I had the beautiful experience of photographing the abundance of love between these cousins and sisters. It was the perfect an opportunity to get these family photos as Jaime’s family visited as they travel around Australia.
Raine, Jaylah and I quickly became friends over the discussion of how great donuts are and I how I love having them for breakfast (they have to be Otto’s to be eaten for breakfast). The cousin’s great love for their little cousin Sofia was demonstrated throughout our entire time together.
We looked at turtles and fished for barramundi with sticks in the river, I relied on my new little friends to be my “croc” spotter as I carefully negotiated my way across a small semi submerged tree.
It was beautiful to see the sister’s mutual great love for each others children and the joy of having this afternoon making memories together. It is a real privilege not only to photograph to photograph these three stages of Sophia’s life …but also the beautiful, strength and gentleness of Brandi becoming a Mum.
