I first met Melissa in 2012 when she was pregnant with their second baby, Charlie and I was pregnant with our twins. Our husbands had worked together many years ago and so when Melissa and Neil moved back to Cape Town we invited them over for dinner. I remember that I made chicken curry – probably not the best meal to offer a pregnant dinner guest 🙂 We would see each other from time to time at mutual friends’ birthday parties or just out and about. But life gets busy and time flies by and we hadn’t seen each other in a while when I bumped into Melissa in the mall one day. And she was pregnant with this precious little boy, Harvey! After his birth I was thrilled when Meliss asked me to do his newborn lifestyle session.
It was such a gorgeous shoot in their beautiful new home, with the most exquisite natural light. Sophie and Charlie are clearly smitten with their baby brother and when it was their turns to be photographed with Harvey they were both just brilliant. And so proud to be the big sister and big brother! And Harvey was an absolute star. I loved everything about this photo session and it was a treat hanging out with the Padoas for a few hours. Thank you, Melissa and Neil for choosing me to capture these precious moments with your beautiful family.
