The Beauty and Joy | Photography by We Are Origami

Maternity Photography by We Are Origami and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0001“I met Charmenie a few years back when Edmond, her husband, contacted me to capture their engagement session in the beautiful Southern Highlands (Papau, New Guinea). Over the years, I’ve developed a friendship with them as we have been through so many milestones together, dating back to their engagement, their registry signing, their weddings in Sydney and Japan, this maternity session and their new born session recently! This maternity session was very intimate and special not only because it was captured in a beautiful cottage but also because Charmenie and Edmond are such wonderful human beings and that I’ve been so lucky to see them grow over the years. I wanted to capture this transformative and beautiful event in their lives, to help Charmenie have sweet memories of her pregnancy and the journey of motherhood. She was just glowing in her pregnancy as she awaited her baby girl, Isla Rose…”Maternity Photography by We Are Origami and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0002 Maternity Photography by We Are Origami and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0003

 

“…To me, photographing motherhood is being able to capture some of the most raw, emotional and honest moments of a woman’s life. As a husband and a dad, that also happens to run my own photography business, I’m afforded the luxury of watching the beauty and joys of motherhood occur before my very eyes every day. I find photographing motherhood fulfilling because it allows me to collect the memories that mothers may not realize are happening, as a result of being caught up in her motherly moments.

There was a quote I came across some years ago and it still resonates very strongly with me:

“It takes someone brave to be a mother, someone strong to raise a child, and someone special to love someone more than herself.” David, PhotographerMaternity Photography by We Are Origami and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0004 Maternity Photography by We Are Origami and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0005 Maternity Photography by We Are Origami and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0006 Maternity Photography by We Are Origami and featured on The Fount Collective, a lifestyle community and publication devoted to the art of being a mother_0008
