Grown in Cape Town – that is the beautiful fynbos fairy from today’s newborn shoot and the protea she’s clutching! I’m proudly South African, as well as Capetonian so styling this session was right up my alley. I prefer natural light on a newborn’s skin which is probably why I tend to do more on location work than studio work (but I do studio work from time to time). I like to keep my styling as natural and simple as possible and love working with textures.
I can’t write this blog without mentioning the family dog who decided to join the family for this session. What a sweetheart! Here’s to not forgetting our four-legged friends in the euphoria of bringing home a new baby! And here’s to Cape Town, protea’s and this beautiful fynbos fairy!
