2 years of a Beautiful Life By Amber Gardener Naturalight Photography


Rosie’s family are one of my most regular clients, every shoot I feel like I am catching up with a girl friend, as we have so much fun and Rosie knows she is going to love what I create for them. I first met Rosie and baby Edward ( known as Teddy) after capturing his newborn photos at 3 days new at Peninsula Private Hospital, we then met again for Teddy’s 6 montth studio shoot and also his first trip to the beach and also Teddy’s 1st Birthday at the family home which was a Hoot party with a visit from mobile farm animals! Then Rosie contacted me to share her wonderful news that she was expecting a new little bundle of joy and she asked me to capture a long timeline – so of course I jumped at the chance to watch and see her grow and change!

So from 8 weeks, we met every 4 weeks for a timeline photo, when Lucinda arrived, I captured her photos at 3 days new at Peninsula Private Hospital, it felt like an awesome case of DejaVu!  A few weeks ago, we enjoyed a session with the whole family at the beautiful Morning Star Estate in Mt Eliza, the connection and love this family share is beyond beautiful. Seeing this blog from start to end, makes me realise just how special my work is and will remind us all the importance of capturing the moments we are living in. I love that Rosie trusts me to capture these precious memories and it re affirms to me exactly why I do what I do. xox
