When I arrived in New Zealand over eight years ago, I went for an interview and my interviewer was Melissa. During our conversation, she stopped, and said “we have a job going here”, and the next thing I knew we were working together! Whilst we didn’t work together for long, we did stay in touch and over the years we have seen each other on and off. 

At one of our last catch ups Melissa told me the amazing news that she was pregnant, with twins! I was overjoyed for her and her partner Gareth and offered immediately to take photos of her when she was ready. Of course, we didn’t know that the girls would be ready sooner than we thought! And so, just a few days before the twins were born we took a short trip to Milford Beach and captured Melissa and her baby bump. I’m so glad we managed to get these photos before the girls arrived.
