It’s an exciting time growing and then anticipating the arrival of a new baby and it’s even more exciting when there is a happy excited big brother in the mix who just can’t waaaait to meet his new brother or sister, who has been dubbed “Brother John”.
I thought I’d pump this beautiful series of photos out onto a blog before “Brother John” comes into all our lives. My beautiful friend Kim (of Kimberley Cheyne Photography) is currently 41 weeks pregnant, but we aren’t half surprised that little Hutton button hasn’t come yet… Kim makes such an amazing inner home for her babies, why would they want to leave?… Eli can vouch for that, having stayed in an extra 2 weeks over the due date too! :)
“Hutton Button/Brother John”, is in for a treat though when he or she does decide to come, because they are entering into the most wonderful family full of epic love, great humour and utter care. Eli will have to share this love, humour and care… but the wonderful thing is, there is MOOOOOORE than enough to go around. Eli is going to make the best big brother too, full of charm, character and tenderness… life is about to change for this sweet, bouncy 2 and half year old and I simply cannot wait to see him proud as punch, holding his gorgeous wee sibling!! … Not long now! <3
We planned a lovely weekend in December to hang out and capture this beautiful growing family. Something special Kim and I have been able to do for each other over our years in the photo field, we feel so blessed. Kim wanted to capture some fun natural family photos of her, Liam, Eli & bump having a ball together, that represents this time in their lives. So we packed up a picnic and with fickle weather in toe, headed to a beach in Karitane. We all had the best time with our 2 little families (token shot of Isaac appears) running around the beach with few souls in site. And although Liam’s eye was taken out by a piece of grass with a chip on it’s shoulder and Eli’s toe ran into some mayhem of it’s own… These guys had a blast, enjoying some quality family time as 3 plus bump, and I feel so blessed we was there to capture it! :)
Love you guys and we can’t wait for the news of your fourth member making an entrance into this world… me and the rest of your friends and family lol.
Take Care beautiful peeps!! <3
