Stew & Michelle {Engagement}

Meet my big brother Stew. He’s grinning ear to ear because life couldn’t get much better at the moment.
He has a lovely woman by the name of Michelle. She’s pregnant with his first child (another nephew for me). And they will be getting married!

Ahhh bliss.

Michelle and Stew met at the very beginning of the year. After going through the big Feb quake together, you an hardly blame them for becoming immediately close. Before they knew it, they were taking trips together, they’d moved in together, announced that a baby was on it’s way.
And if that wasn’t all exciting enough… Stew popped the question at their favourite place, the pier on New Brighton Beach.

Stew wanted a girl (who can blame him after having lived with our 4 nephews for a while hehe) and Michelle wanted a boy. But the laws of natures don’t care about your preference… as long as the baby is happy and healthy right? So my big bro will be having a son.
(Go for a girl next time guys! ;-)
And I know he is going to make one terrific Dad!

With note of their favourite spot and where the engagement took place, of course we had to have our photo shoot at New Brighton beach. Right by the pier.

They are absolutely besotted with one another.

Stew is into photography as well. Mr impatient was ready to take my RAW images home to look through them because he just couldn’t wait. Nice try buddy! lol.

Hanging by the womans loo’s..ya know..as ya do. Michelle blew the kisses and Stew happily caught them. (They must of been big kisses, Stew looks like he’s ready to catch a cricket ball!)

I think Doug out shot me the other day with this baby. I told Stew to whisper something naughty in Michelle’s ear. I’m pretty sure Stew whispered “Heather told me to whisper something naughty!”… Defeats the purpose bro! lol… But Doug still nailed what I tried to.

This is one of those shots that comes to me at the spur of the moment and I get so excited by my brilliance (ha, yeah right)… it’s like a caffeine high.
The client looks at me like I’m an idiot.. but hey, we have fun and achieve some pretty wicked imagery!

Stew & Michelle. Enjoy every moment of the months to come before parenthood. Enjoy each others company and the sleep you so much enjoy, while you can.
Because you know what they say?!… A baby is your own personal alarm clock until the point it can find food elsewhere. (Ok, maybe they don’t say that, I think I just made that up.. but it sounds good! ;-)

I had a great time on our photo shoot and I can’t wait to show you the rest of the photos.

Loads of Love xoxo

    Wow Heather – these have blown us away!  Thank you SO much for your enthusiasm and your energy levels AND all the running you did to get the perfect picture (far out, I thought photographers only ran when they were trying to snap celebs)!
    I love all the different moods you managed to capture of the day – I’m sure the weather wasn’t that stunning, but the pictures really do tell a different story don’t they?  
    We had such an awesome day with you and Doug (and thanks Doug for the running you did too) and your energy levels kept us going right up until we finished (although we did need to have a nap when we got home)…
    So pleased to have such lovely shots of such an important ‘Stew and Michelle’ place.
    Michelle xoxox
