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.

Family – Maternity Session

“Like branches on a tree, we all grow in different directions, but our roots remain as one.”  This weekend’s maternity session reminded me of this quote – of family.  Family is where life begins and love never ends. And at the heart of it is always a woman.  Over the years I have learned how important family is to me, but also that family is not always blood.  It’s about the people in your life who want to be there.  The ones who love you for who you are and care for the things and people that are important to you.

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.

Fearfully-Made

I’ve been wanting to do a bird’s nest newborn shoot for a while now. However, I could not find a suitable ‘nest’.  I wanted something different to the typical ‘studio prop’ shoot – something more organic and natural. Something special. So I decided to make my own nest.  Today I got to try it out and I couldn’t have picked a more perfect subject for it (a little boy called Hendrik).

Newborn Photography | Fynbos Fairy

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!
