It was a heart-warming experience to be invited to capture these gorgeous parents-to-be, at their beautiful home in Goonengerry, NSW. Cass and Karl, both 28, are expecting their first baby, affectionately known as "B", on the 18th November.
It was delightful to see the young couple so clearly in love and excited to meet their baby. I'm a total sucker for romance, so this photo shoot really tapped into that side of me. Cass describes Karl as being her twin flame. They met when they were both 15, and then again at 21 when they couldn’t take their eyes off each other.
They'd been weaving in and out of each others lives for many years until in March 2015, they both surrendered to their love for one another. It was on their one year anniversary, under the full moon, that they found out that they were pregnant with "B".
They've been living out in the luscious hills of Goonengerry for 9 months and have created a beautiful home there together. Surrounded by trees, wild green fields and a creek that looks like it's straight out of a fairytale, it's the perfect place to nurture a new life.
Cass and Karl are planning to have a home water birth, and having been to their gorgeous fern-gully retreat, I can see why they've chosen to welcome their baby into the world in that way.
At 32 weeks, Cass is beaming. It was such a pleasure to photograph such a stunning mama-to-be. Wishing all the best to this wonderful new family and I can't wait to meet little "B"!
