Expecting a child is such a blessing, the wonder of God’s creation.  Sharing in this precious time of a family’s life is always an honour. You are a beautiful family, enjoy this little one!  He is blessed to be born into your family.

Garden Route Mossel Bay Maternity Session – Inge

Maternity

Taking the time to do a bit of a personal project is always rewarding! Inge only wanted a few studio portraits to remember this precious time of expecting their first little one. I asked her to extend the session with a bit of a project for me. The recent fires in Dana Bay was scary and tragic, I am also a Dana Bay resident and was directly affected by this. I do believe that one should rather focus on the positive than the negative. Thank you Melissa, you were such a great sport for helping me! Makeup by Gabriella Netto.

Mossel Bay Maternity Portraits – Marcel & Terry Expecting

Maternity

Trish booked this session for her twin sister a while ago.  I made a note in my diary of a maternity session for Terry on the 27th and added a cellphone number, but no further details.  This being the hectic season I could not remember the details of the booking and the number I had did not work!  I could not find Terry any where on social media, smart woman, so I was kind of in a panic!  I was so relieved to receive a message from Trish last week to finalise the details for her sister’s session – I did not remember that she made the booking – lesson learned: make notes with every booking!  Marcel and Terry are such a sweet couple and still totally in love.  Marcel is super proud of his beautiful wife and Terry cannot keep her eyes of her blue eyed husband. They are looking forward  wait to little Olivia’s arrival later this week. Looking forward to meet this little bundle. Love the gorgeous light and sweet moments captured in these beautiful maternity portraits.

Garden Route Maternity Portraits – Ghertlin Expecting Twins

Maternity

Ghertlin and Hilton are expecting twins.  They are not based in Mossel Bay, so we had to book their maternity session in a time convenient for them, when they are in town for their doctor’s appointment.  This resulting in me getting my creative brain into gear, because taking photos outside, in midday, is not the best time, or so I thought!  I love everything about these images, the location, the light, the sky, the time of day an above all, the people!  I have been blessed again with meeting an awesome couple.   Cannot wait to meet your bundles of joy.

Family and Maternity Portraits Mossel Bay: Campher Family

Family Portraits, Maternity

The Campher family is expecting their second little boy, his big brother’s super hero side kick!  Family and maternity photography forms a big part of my work as a photographer in the Garden Route.  It is always such a pleasure to meet awesome new families, like the Campher family.  What made this family stand out to me, is the fact that they believe in a good God based foundation for their children.  May God bless and guide you in this precious task of looking after His children.

Maternity

I have learned so much in this year, it was awesome to have the opportunity to apply what I have learned.  I am over the moon with what I have achieved in this beautiful maternity session.  The forrest setting is just amazing and the beautiful expecting mother was just awesome to work with.  Anina and Marius are expecting their first little one, due in September.  Anina is also an amazing photographer, so it was an honour to do these images for her.  Enjoy these last few weeks of this precious time in your life, looking forward to meet this little guy!
