THE MIRACLE OF LIFE
My beautiful niece, Vivienne Rose Tang.
The new year has definitely started off with a bang. I became an aunty for the first time last Saturday morning to a beautiful little girl, Vivienne Rose. To be honest, I'd never been one for babies. Two years ago when we got married I remember saying to Leslie that we'd live in our cute little unit with two dogs, we'd travel the world and chase his photography dreams - life would be perfect! Fast forward to today and it still baffles me how this concept of 'babies' has suddenly entered our lives.
It hit me last Friday when my brother messaged me about his wife going into labour; 'We're at hospital now. Pray for us.' It dawned on me that this whole nine months of whinging and complaining about how big I'm getting, how I miss my ham sandwiches and how simply sleeping has become such a chore is very nearing its end. It's sad to know that in a couple of weeks, I will no longer be able to talk to my belly and have that be acceptable, no longer will I be able to feel my little boy's every move, know exactly where he is and know that I'm doing all I can to keep him safe. It's taking the first step to letting go, and we all know how hard that always is...
It's scary to think that the nine months spent creating this new life was the easy part. I've definitely developed a new found respect for all mums out there, and of course especially, for my own mum - who bravely gave birth to two naughty monkeys in a third world country, without the luxury of any happy gas or epidural.
This maternity shoot was meant to be have been done with my beautiful sister-in-law. Unfortunately, I failed miserably in convincing her to join me on this shoot before she popped, so for now, it'll be just me :) Thank you to my wonderful husband for capturing these lovely frames and sorry for being such an unco-operative and demanding client - you know how much I hate having my photos taken.
Hopefully, I will still be able to find time to blog once bubbi is out as the team from TRUphotography have still so much to share. Until next time, Happy Chinese New Year everyone! Hope the year of the Horse brings lots of wealth, happiness and good health to all. Take care for now!

Wish me luck!
