I have known Louise since I was a teenager. We've mostly been connected by a couple of degrees of separation, boyfriends, flatmates, friends etc, but we've continually weaved throughout each others lives over these many years developing a friendship of our own. I guess that's the nature of being from a small town.
Louise is gentle, sweet, intelligent and laugh-out-loud funny. I'm confident that anyone who has her in their lives feels pretty blessed. In Mike she has found an equally kind and gentle man who has stood beside her during some difficult times. I'm beyond excited to be photographing their wedding next month at this same location. And to use a frequently overused word I'll say it's going to be AWESOME!
In the meantime here are some photos of a fellow bush kid and her soulmate just before she gave birth last year.
And here is their Bump.
