My very dear friend and fabulous photographer Lindi Heap has had a very gorgeous little baby. Mabel has been a long time coming but now she’s here and what a dear wee thing she is!
I photographed the bump as it got bigger and it was so wonderful to be a part of her pregnancy in this way. It was a lovely excuse to catch up every few weeks…and apart from a little hiccup of a broken leg, she bloomed. Lindi also asked me if I’d like to photograph her baby being born and of course I couldn’t think of anything more special. In the end it didn’t quite work out that way, but only because there was medical intervention.
I was however, there very soon after her gorgeous baby girl Mabel was born. I felt so privileged to be with my lovely friend and her gorgeous husband, Dave, when they were so new to being parents.
I love documents such as the set of images I have done for Lindi and Dave. These are such precious things, especially if something tangible is made from the images…. By the time I get this blog post live, hopefully Lindi and Dave will have a little gift I have created for them in the form of a book: something that they can show their daughter when she grows up.
Thank-you lovely friend for allowing me the intimacy of being with your new family so soon after it was created.
Love you all Heaps!
