This is the first of three parts to the story of little Azure's birth! I HAD to capture my beautiful sister in all her pregnant glory before she welcomed her second baby girl into the world. Many of you may remember Nicole's first maternity session, I thought is was lovely! This maternity session was a bit more impromptu, Nicole and I both have had so much going on with the wedding season, I'm so glad we were able to squeeze in a mini session before Azure was born!

I am a second year student from the university Charles Telfair Institute, found in Mauritius. I am actually doing my degree in Mass Communication and photography is among the streams of my course that I study. I am in point of fact specialising myself in photography. I love taking pictures but I am still an amateur concerning that. I only know the basics and i really want to get into it. I mean I want to build up my career and become a professional photographer. It is always a pleasure to view photography blogs and gather the knowledge and concepts of other great photographers, like you :) I deeply appreciate this particular concept of yours. Being a mother is I think 'the' best ever feeling of the world for a woman and your sister is surely happy with Azure's birth :) I really love the different exposures use for all the different pictures. Also the expression of the protagonist is the most essential aspect which defines the happiness that comes from her, and for you to capture that moment is epic. I would like to know if the source of light that was used was only daylight or flash was also used?

There are so many wonderful moments that I feel extremely blessed to be a part of and photograph. One of the most amazing things I've had the opportunity to photograph and witness are the births of my little nieces. Many of you may recall Lucy's birth story and Lola's birth story. What an emotional roller coaster, yet it's such a spiritual experience, photographs do not do it justice. I was thrilled when Jill and Kenny told me that they wanted me to be there to photograph the birth of their second baby girl Jade. What an intimate experience, to be honest I debated whether or not if I should blog these, but the images are too remarkable to not share (plus, I have the blessing from Kenny + Jill to share). Not to worry, I kept it clean!:) So here you go, let the images speak for themselves and tell this wonderful birth story of Jade Matilda!
