Since arriving in New Zealand, I have had a certain soft spot for Christchurch. Roy started his insurance career at a young age and carried it with him oversees to Australia and still to this day works within the industry. So when he got a role working to help rebuild Christchurch after the earthquakes of course we had a strong bond with the city.
Through Roy’s work we met Mel and Luke who moved to Auckland after the earthquakes. And even when they moved back to Christchuch years later to start their family, Roy and I visited as often as we could.
Fast forward a few years and Mel’s sister Bonnie was expecting her third baby – a little boy who would later be named Lachlan. Whilst we were visiting Mel and Luke I offered to take some photos of Bonnie and her beautiful baby bump. And well, ‘m not sure who was more excited about this shoot, but Bonnie’s daughter Nadia sure gave me a run for my money!
Thanks to Bonnie for allowing me to capture and share these images.
