Jess & Harper

Jess and Harper are high school sweethearts. Although in different years at school, their story begins at a high school swimming carnival. 7 years on from then, here we were at our session yesterday. They've got a full of beans son Elijah who's too cute for words!!
Harper started on testosterone earlier this year, commencing his female-male transition. Prior undergoing hysterectomy surgery to further continue the transition, Harper hopes to bear a child, just ticking off that last box of woman-hood. On his personal Facebook account, Harper has teed up with a fellow trans friend of his, and they've filmed Q&A videos explaining all about themselves, transgender and the process involved, and everything in between which is being widely viewed by the community!

I truly had a blast with Harper, Jess & Eli yesterday. So much love within this little family, and we connected instantly like we'd been friends for years. Just such a down-to-earth couple and even though all Eli wanted to do was play on the nearby playground his lollypop bribe kept his attention for our session!

Today the results of the Australian Marriage survey came in, after the tally of our nation's say has been counted. The result was a majority YES, and I truly hope to see that in the future, Australian marriage laws are changed to allow same-sex couples to wed.
