The Spit Gold Coast

Sam and Amber…what a dreamy session. Expecting their first baby in March, Amber was exuding that pregnancy glow we all hear about (but i never had, boooooo for missing out!). She was graceful and delicate and completely embraced that baby in her belly. You could feel the bond and love she has for her baby and it was magical to capture. Sam was a real trooper and made this session so special for her.

We met at The Spit on the Gold Coast on a Saturday evening, just before sunset. The weather was not in our favour. It was incredibly windy and the shores were littered with blue bottles and jelly fish. However, Amber took it in her stride and we used the wind to our advantage. It added an incredible sense of depth and movement to our final images and really helped to showcase her dress which we chose for her from my client wardrobe. Neutral and pastel tones are perfect for  beachy settings. Coordinating outfits (without being matchy matchy) can really give your photos the wow factor. I offer all of my clients a pre-session wordobe consultation if they would like one.

The Spit offers amazing scenery for photographers. From the ocean and jetty to the sand dunes, we explored it all. It is one of my favourite locations to photograph at on the Gold Coast. I like to meet my clients at around 5:45 in the afternoon. This allows time for wardrobe changes and the walk down to the beach. During summer the sun sets at The Spit at around 6pm and I love to be able to catch the change of light from 6-7.

Sam and Amber are going to be amazing parents and I cannot even imagine how outrageously gorgeous their baby is going to be.
