Kylo Phoenix Earthside


My sweet bub earthside

On the 15th of September 2022, my heart grew a little bigger, as Shannon and I welcomed our first son into the world.

Bub came earthside in the afternoon, with many complications soon to arise, seeing me taken away to theatre and leaving my two boys for a few hours.

But let me tell you, coming back, groggy, after only just waking up. To see little Kylo for the first time properly (without nearly passing out from blood loss), was so very heart-warming. Getting to hold him against me, with Shannon by my side, as a family of 3 now. It really is life changing.

Welcoming him home a few days later, we really did just grow more and more in love. Seeing his cheeky behaviour developing, so early on, and watching him grow, will be something of a dream.

My world has changed – and all in all, it will change the way I photograph, for the better.

Thank you to the wonderful team at Wodonga Maternity with helping through all this.

You will call it madness but I call it love.
