— vannessa + evie.

This post has been a long time in the making, but I’m so happy to be finally sharing it. This is not my typical session, but that is probably why its one of my favourites to-date. We don’t often think that we want the raw, natural side of ourselves photographed. To me however, these images are beyond beautiful. These images show to those who view them, a look at our true selves, unencumbered by make-up, fancy clothes or pretty shoes. They represent our day-to-day selves that we only ever share with those close to us. I thank Vannessa so much for letting me photograph her with her daughter Evie in their natural state. I love the moments that they shared together, the connection that they share without even speaking. This breastfeeding session made me rethink all the time and effort we sometimes put into getting ready for a photo session and remember those the so-called imperfections, the scars, and the marks that we might hide, are really in the end, a thing of beauty. Thank you for sharing in these moments with me and thank you Vannessa and Evie.
