The beautiful Mama in these frames is one of my friends from high school, back in our teeny rural NZ town. I’m always amazed at how our paths end up crossing with others again at the most opportune of times. Lorelle and her wedded love Jimi relocated to Melbourne for a change in pace a few years ago and it is here, in our marvelous state capital that they welcomed their first born, baby Rico on October 11, 2015. For the first time in about 10 years I caught up with this beautiful friend of mine and had the honour of being invited into their home to document these fleeting moments in time. This is them, as they were, with a wee 6-week-old Rico James.
