Another outdoor first birthday photo shoot! Location - Ruan Lanihorne on the Roseland - one of my favourites. It's so hard really to find outdoor locations in the Summer that aren't heavily shaded and have the right amount of colour and accessibility. By the time we had this shoot I was in my 8th month of pregnancy and starting to feel it. We started by the bridge and then went over to the other side of the bridge. Embarrassingly about halfway through I suddenly felt really dizzy and proceeded to faint. I had the sense to grab onto Ysella's dad's hand and hold on tight, and managed to stay on my feet while Kelen ran to my car to grab my water bottle. They helped me sit down and come back around. Fortunately Ysella kept herself amused and didn't think to wander anywhere near the river. It was while I was sitting there still out of it that I looked over to her and snapped the ones of her by the basket which I couldn't resist. I was soon ok and we carried on but I learnt to respect my body's limits that day and keep hydrated and not push it any more.
They were absolutely wonderful, and I hope Ysella has a brilliant birthday party!
