Our Beautiful Life | Lucie’s Birth | Mediclinic Louis Leipoldt, Cape Town

I met Christelle, Tron and their two lively boys at Elandsbaai for their maternity shoot. We (my three kids, hubby and I) were at a family wedding at Muisbosskerm the day before and made a small detour to the sleepy seaside village on our way back where we met the Van Wyks.

Although the the weather was not playing along, I had so much fun with this vibrant and energetic family of four (soon to be five) on the quiet beach. No one took themselves too seriously and the boys were so excited about their new baby sister’s eminent arrival.  They were delighted that they could share her name (a secret at that stage) with me by writing it with chalk on the road! And so capturing their journey to meeting Lucie, the first princess to the family, began!

And Then They Were Three

I’ve known Charlotte since her intern days as a marketing executive.  Back then she and Matthew were still dating, but we all knew that one day this special couple would get married.  They did – and my husband and I were there to witness this special occasion.

Fast forward a couple of years: Today Charlotte is a mom.  We don’t see each other that often anymore, but it was so special to follow Charlotte’s journey from a tiny little growing bump to finally meeting their beautiful little girl and falling in love with her on a daily basis via facebook.

I finally got to meet her little princess when I did their family shoot for them a couple of months ago.  The couple that met me at the park were the same young couple from years back, and yet they were different.  They had a beautiful maternal glow.

Mom-my

Mom-myHave you ever noticed that ‘mommy’ spells ‘my mom backwards’?  Neither have –  I until I wrote this blog this evening.  Seeing that Mother’s Day is around the corner I thought I’d pay tribute to moms and their daughters tonight and what better way than with the beautiful safari bath time shoot I did with Celeste and her little girl.  The bond between mom and daughter was so evident as they played in the last golden rays before sunset.
