I was very honoured when Roelien Visser (a Photographer too) from Finishing Touch, contacted me to do their family shoot. Their little Man, Reynard, is only a little younger than Eva. What a cute little guy! He was full of smiles and just LOVED to dance among the apple blossoms with his Mum 🙂 We met at Bieuleau Farm in Elgin. We tried our best to catch the full blossom bloom but unfortunately we just missed it! It was still beautiful though!
Whilst on our trip to Joburg, I met with my Sister-in-law, some Mums and their gorgeous Babes for a photo session! Wow, trying to get four baba’s to cooperate is not simple task! It was super fun though! I guess the trick is to simply let them be. It is quite important to me to photograph families and especially Mums. I feel, we (Mums) get left out a little. We are so focused on our beautiful baby that we spend hours taking pictures of them! Them with their Daddy, with their Granny and Aunty. Not many spare a thought for Mum. It is so important to capture Mum and Baby! Mum will ALWAYS look back at those special moments. Introducing Mums and Babes; Sam & Olivia, Joanne & Alexianne, Erica & Steven and my sister-in-law, Sam & Oliver! I think we got some awesome snaps and lovely memories for the Mums! I absolutely loved photographing these gorgeous little people and hope to do it again soon! Enjoy!
It’s a new life! A very dear and precious one! Marilise and Pierre welcomed me into their home and allowed me the privilege of photographing their new little bundle, Max. At 3 weeks new he was so very calm and allowed us to do our thing with hardly a wimper! Daddy was oh so very brave – he just cannot handle the poopy nappies, and as you can see he went all out! Little Max then decided he would make his mark on the situation! oh yes he did! 😉 Daddy didnt see the humour at all! Unfortunately!
Little Liam is just Gorgeous! Mum, Chantelle, was concerned that we wouldn’t get any smiles out of him but luckily he warmed up to us, with Mum doing some weird Zulu-dancing moves behind me! he he Those two little toofies are just too cute! 😉
Oh these two were so sweet! Little Christiaan was happy, then sad… then alseep! Three seasons in one day! 😉 Marilee is a second time Mum and I can definitly see the difference – she is so relaxed. He cried – he could have screamed blue murder – and she was calm and collected. Not fussed or phased! And of course, it was not long and the little man was settled again. Nature is amazing. Absolutley loved photographing Marilee and Mr Chris!
I absolutely ADORE these two, they just love my lens! I’ve photographed them before and absolutely loved the results, but these are just to die for! I was so DIEing to post some of these pics before delivering them to Carolina but she mentioned to me that this was a surprise for all her family back home in Brazil – It was killing me!! Little Stella is now 6 months old and I cannot believe how she is changing and becomming more and more beautiful! Well done Mum! and Dad… 😉 Sooooo much of cuteness! mwah! Oh my I could eat this up!
This little Man has got some super-dooper energy! Mum really does have her hands full! He is gorgeous – the easiest little fella to photograph. He took one look at me and I got all the smiles! Was wonderful! Thank you mummy, Anine, for letting little Christopher just ‘be’. Cute Christopher, full of beans! Getting half of Christopher in my frame was a common occurrence… ants in those pants for sure! Little mischief!! Precious Ooooooh… Mummy letting me play in the water… 😀 Oh I see my friend… oh oh oh… Boystrous Christopher just about knocked little Samantha off her feet! Too cute!
Little Jodi is a real character. A funny and feisty little thing! What a personality she has got! She is bold with a very sensitive side – gorgeous soul! I absolutely loved shooting her. I had so many laughs. Jodi was terrified of the big Dogs on the farm and clung to mummy for dear life (so precious!) but heck when she found her feet again, it was play play play! Adore this… flying in the water! So sweet! Jodi knows all the moves to all the nursery rhymes… and mummy too! hehe This to me, is just tooo precious. mwah Jodi smell the flower… 😉 Mummy… eat!!
Carolina and Stella, I met, at the Mom’s group I attend in Grabouw. She too, joined the group when little Stella was a teeny tiny little being, in fact, if my memory serves me correctly we met Stella at five days new!! I remember clearly, Carolina and her Mum, (who had come from Brazil for the Birth of her Grandaughter *sniff*), came religiously every week! Its a very reassuring place to go to in those first lonely scary weeks of motherhood! Stella, now at four months of age, is really starting to interact with her world… its so adorable! And I think Mum is really starting to enjoy her bundle now! How they grow and change soo fast! Making fun out of tummy time!! Miss serious-ness! 😉 Mommy giving Stella loads of kisses… Adorable
So when its warm out, my tummy is full, and my bum is in the air… im happy. Just plain happy! 😉 The life of a baba! Mwah Man those toes are edible… And those thighs!! hehe Mom, enough now… ENOUGH!! ;p love it Bum bum bum and a cutie baba smile to end off!
