An unseasonably warm Autumn afternoon greeted us as we ventured out into the gorgeous surrounds of the Chinese Gardens at Nurragingy Reserve. With Mariel showing off her perfect baby bump, we took a stroll through the grounds looking for the sublime golden light streaming through the trees.

Their 2 fur babies joined in for a bit of fun (after all, fur babies are family too) and showed off their excitement at becoming big brother and sister. Mariel’s beautiful maternity gown perfectly matched the glorious Autumn tones in the leaves. Such a delightful way to celebrate the anticipation of new life!
