Nova 100’s Ben, Liam & Belle Godfather Maternity Shoot


Liam Stapleton from Nova Entertainment planned a surprise to my studio, Niki Sprekos Photography for a photoshoot.

Ben Harvey and Sam are eagerly anticipating the arrival of their first baby, and as the chosen godfather, Ben decided to mark this special occasion with a heartwarming maternity session for the expecting couple

Liam said the session is aimed not only to capture beautiful images but also to solidify the bond between Ben and the unborn child.

“It was the greatest day of my life when Ben asked me to be the Godfather of his son.” Liam said

Ben said, “Didn’t you get engaged last year?”

Liam said, “I really wanted to capture this moment, a really special moment, where Sam is just about to burst, we are just about to meet the little guy, I wanted to capture the moment forever.”

He added, “I’ve never been that close to your wife in a bra before, and probably never will again.”

Welcome Baby Freddie

Nova 100’s Ben Harvey and his wife Sam shortly after celebrated the arrival of their baby boy, Freddie James Harvey.

On the Ben, Liam & Belle Breakfast show Ben described Sam as a real-life Wonder Woman.

“Watching what Sam went through was unbelievable. That’s crazy. I did nothing. When you watch childbirth, there’s nothing you can say after that isn’t just a cliche.”

Ben and Sam left me an amazing review as well and it was so great receiving this feedback:


“Niki was amazing with our two week old. She is very experienced in what she does, our little boy was so calm the entire time. The photos turned out so beautiful, and they are definitely something we will cherish forever”.  – Ben Harvey & Sam
