Sydney’s best maternity portraits, are in my opinion offered at sunrise. There is something truly magical about this time of day, when night kisses day.
Day’s sweetest moments are at dawn;
Refreshed by his long sleep, the Light
Kisses the languid lips of Night,
Ere she can rise and hasten on.
All glowing from his dreamless rest
He holds her closely to his breast,
Warm lip to lip and limb to limb,
Until she dies for love of him.
~~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox ~~
I love this poem by Ella Wilcox and the simple description of beauty of the sunrise. And when I have a client as beautiful as Lisa it is just perfect to capture her maternity portraits at this time of day.
North Narrabeen rock pools. A glorious golden sunrise. Breaking waves. Flying seagulls. A beautiful couple waiting excitedly for their first baby to arrive. Magic happens.
To make it all the more spectacular, these amazing people were game enough to finish their shoot by jumping into the crystal clear waters of the pool. In May!
