{ Baby in 2014? }

Hello there! It’s been awhile but I’m nearly back on Australian soil after some big adventures through Asia with my family.  I may have coerced my husband to return a little earlier than expected as I was tempted to capture some more birth stories earlier this year.  In return for his co-operation he did score permission to buy a camper trailer!  Happiness all around!  I am excited to get straight back into the magic of storytelling through art.  The Birth Story is now taking bookings for 2014.  Please note there are very limited spots left for birth bookings in 2014.  If you would like your pregnancy, birth, or newborn story documented then I would love to chat with you!

As I’m currently still out of the country, email is the best contact info@thebirthstory.com.au

{ Time out to see the World }

With all my heart, I want to express my gratitude to all who follow this blog, comment, email, support me and allow me to photograph them in such vulnerable moments. You have touched my heart in many ways, allowed me to express the beauty of birth and made this journey of starting ‘The Birth Story’ such an amazing one. I am beyond blessed to be heading off to Asia tomorrow with the two most adorable men in my world! Having a diverse background, travel has always been a strong desire, particularly amongst different cultures than the western world. This dream has finally come to fruition and we are excited for the unknown that awaits us! We plan to return to Australia around March next year.

This is definitely no end for ‘The Birth Story’. Though I’ll be taking some time off to travel with my family, I am so passionate about birth photography I cannot wait to see what the future holds when I get back. Whilst away, I really hope to be able to photograph some births in rural settings in Asia. If I do get that amazing experience, I’ll be blogging about it as soon as I can!! A big thank you to my dear friend Cassie from Koko Photography for taking these precious images of my family!

Love Bree xx

For some reason these images remind me of Jack Johnson’s lyrics… ‘waiting on the world to change.’ I love this serene quiet moment; a mother dreaming of her baby that she has carried for so long and just waiting to finally hold in her arms. Her World is truly about to change! For this gorgeous mother and her partner it was only two days after these photos were taken that they welcomed their little girl!
