Golden hour maternity shoot at Royal Victoria Country Park.

I absolutely loved this golden hour maternity shoot I did with Kirsti and Jack in the summer. These two are such an adorable couple and were absolute naturals in front of the camera.

I'd been following Kirsti on Instagram for a while (check her out at @silentsweetheart) and she commented how much she would like some photos to remember this magical time. I reached out to her, we had a chat and a quick meet up over coffee and arranged to do a shoot with her and her husband at Royal Victoria Country Park in Netley, Southampton. It is a special place for them as a couple, so it was lovely doing this shoot with them, walking round while they reminisced about past dates... This will now be another special memory for them as their little family grows.

Both Kirsti and I were very keen on getting that golden sunset glow for their images, so when the grey thunderstorm started rolling in on the day we had arranged for their shoot we made the decision to delay it for a day or two, and I'm so glad we did! We got a gorgeous sunset on the evening of their shoot - that light brought out their glow.

Here are a few images from their shoot...

A glorious evening with a fab couple - now a trio! Kirsti had a beautiful boy who they named Chester (love that name).
