Nicole & Grant Hardwick Maternity Shoot at Scarborough Beach, Perth

 

 

 

This photoshoot holds very close to my heart. Nicole & I met at the age of 13 at the 'Ripcurl Girls Go Surfing Day' in Secret Harbour. I had just moved to Western Australia and didn't have any friends. I was young and incredibly shy at the time but my mum encouraged me to introduce myself to some of the other girls. I was too embarrased so she held my hand and walked me over to Nicole where she introduced me. I met Nicole, her sister Megan and her lovely Mum Jenny that day. Little did I know how close we would become in the years to follow. After an afternoon of laughing and frolicking in the ocean trying to catch the white wash on our foam surfboards we had discovered we'd both be attending the very same high school. From then on in we became best friends. 

In 2012 I ventured to Namibia with her, where she grew up to visit family and friends. 

In 2014 I headed back to Namibia to attend her wedding as one of her bridesmaids when she married her husband Grant. We have been there for another through some of the biggest moments of our life and this was one of the greatest so far. 

The pregnancy and birth of her very first child Chloe Anne. 

I photographed Nicole & Grants maternity photos one winters afternoon down at Scarborough Beach.
